    It can improve relations with your Ally, for example. It can commit an AI to a war that may not be to its advantage, with any luck for longer than it might otherwise have been inclined to fight (not always, though).

    But I primarily use MAs to encourage the peacenik AIs to expend their attack-unit stacks — because if they're fighting someone else (on my behalf), they're not fighting me!

    Also, if I can successfully 'encourage' them to break their Resource-trades with my enemy, that will weaken my enemy, and/or free up Luxes/StratRes for me to buy instead.

    Cerco esperti che modificano gli scenari e le loro regole per capire se è possibile giocare con una sola città per tutto il gioco e quindi sapere quali impostazioni attivare sullo scenario.

    up yours!
    He says ‘I am looking for experts at modifying scenarios and their rules (i.e. expert modders) so that I can understand whether if is possible to play with only one city for the entire game and also to know which settings to activate on the scenario’
    i.e., less literally, what he needs to do to get to play a one-city game, what modifications, etc.

    Perhaps we should move that question to the "Creation and Customization" forum, then?

    But even for the unmodded game, I can answer this question:
    > so that I can understand whether it is possible to play with only one city for the entire game
    Yes, there is even a special game variant called "One City Challenge" (OCC), which requires you to play the entire game with only one city for the entire game. Almost every victory condition has been achieved as OCC: Conquest, Space Ship, United Nations, 20K victory. I'm not sure, whether the 100K victory has been achieved as OCC, I think it might be a bit impossible... And the Domination victory might be impossible as well, as you can't cover 66% of the world's territory with just one city, not even on a tiny map. (Though it may be possible with a hand-crafted map that consists mostly of ocean?! -- In any case, not in a random standard game.)
    If you search the "Stories and Tales" forum for OCC, you will certainly find a few of these achievements. E.g.:

    You can't do 100k as a single city, since you'll hit 20k first. (But you can do 100k with 5 cities on a standard map, by carefully timing them all to reach 20k on the same turn. I would like to do this someday, but I'm afraid that I'm too lazy to deal with all the micromanaging.) I seem to remember that there is a culture bug, that gives the empire culture on the turn you come out of anarchy but not the city, but I can't imagine being able to accumulate enough extra culture that way, even on a tiny map where you only need 60k. You'd have to spend twice as many turns coming out of anarchy as you spent not in anarchy.
