I'm playing regent right now, and I'm doing pretty well except for one thing : Other civs won't deal with me! Anything! I try to trade for techs but they say "They will be insulted for this deal" even if I offer everything I can. I can't even trade for territory map and world map because they don't want to! They act like the world map is priceless. I'm at war with Egypt and I just conquered all but 1 city and they won't accept my envoy! None of the civs want an alliance with me, or right of passage, or to even create a military alliance against civs THEY ARE AT WAR AGAINST. I.E England is attacking Egypt and so am I, and they are polite with me, but they won't join in an alliance with us. Well, can someone help me out? I'm playing Vanilla.
