    Why can't you trade stuff when negotiating for a peace treaty? It's been done before in history so why not in civ? If anybody know how to mod this in it would be very helpful to me.

    You can negotiate when getting a peace treaty. It does require certain techs to be able to negotiate for items. Either party will need to have Alphabet to be able to offer techs as part of the peace treaty. Either party will need to have Currency to be able to offer gold (lump sum or gold per turn) as part of the peace treaty. If you have these required techs, you can go to the diplomacy screen and add and remove items as part of the peace treaty-although the losing party may not accept the peace agreement if the winner demands too much.

    Things can move in one direction only, which I think is what the OP meant. You can give them some gold to end a war you're losing, or demand a tech from a badly beaten opponent, but you can't give peace and tech for peace and gold or anything like that.

    It doesn't sound unreasonably historically, maybe its a game balance issue to keep you from taking advantage of the AI in some way.

    But the inability for both sides to restore cities to their original owner is slightly irritating.
