is that they seem too much like a competition and not enough like real coexisting. Now, I don't really know how you could do this without making the game unfun, but it would be interesting. I felt that SMAC kind of got this right, the planetary council really made it seem like more like the countries living. The UN in this game tries to do this, but it comes way too late with too little options. Now that is only one solution, but does anyone understand what I am saying?
