    We never learned Advanced Flight, as far as I can tell from our records. The Council would know this from the diplomacy screen (it would be a tech they could sell/trade to us). Advanced Flight gives us Hellicopters; I'm not sure what else.

    From our diplomat, they would know which age we are in.

    I can't get CivAssistII to open up a save game. It throws an Exception when I try to open an MTDG save file, whether _SABER or _FREE.

    Do we reveal too much if we ask for the tech Stealth from The Council?

    My brain just started working again. :crazyeye:

    Before we can buy a tech from The Council, we have to make peace with The Council. We're not ready to do that.

    What we can do is have them offer a peace treaty with accept + stealth. We accept, then declare war. SABER will never know. They'll find out once we finish the tech that we researched it.

    For some reason I was thinking that if you made peace you have ti stay at peace for 210 turns.

    What's wrong with just declaring war again, as long as they know that the peace treaty isn't permanent?

    Received from The Council while we held Turn 254. I saw this as I went to mail the game on to Babe. This came as one long text, no indentation or paragraphs, so I added some white space to make it easier to read.

    Would it hurt to ask them what their list of demands were?

    On their Turn 259, The Council sent Peace. I rejected it, since we had not had a chance to discuss it.

    I don't see a problem with a peace treaty. From that screenshot, The Council was running 100% science, with a bunch of gold in the bank, which are not signs of a space victory. I would refrain from trading luxes becuase we don't need them, and they do with their larger cities. If we do trade, we probably should ask for 1 tech/20 turns of trade.

    I was considering if it would be useful to delay our peace treaty until we declare on Saber. The Phony War didn't work like we expected, but as long as we are at war there is always the slim chance (in Saber's eyes) that we might double cross The Council. I think (need to check to be sure) that we could, if we wanted, invade The Council from Unshackled as quickly as we could Saber.

    It's that slim chance that might slow them down in beefing up their forces near our invasion sites.
