Alliances and diplomacy with other civilizations
« on: March 26, 2005, 01:27:23 pm »
Some of the reports of will wright his talk hinted that there are peacefull ways to deal with other tribes. He also said that beyond the sim city like gameplay there would be civilization like gameplay and diplomacy is crucial in all civilization games. In all civ games expect civ1 could you even form alliances with other civilizations and civ3 had even a diplomatic victory.I often enjoyed the diplomacy more in civilization then the war. It is also very fun to protect a weaker but friendly civilization againsts other civilizations.

So I wonder if one of your creatures would be the "king creatures" who you could sent to other king creatures to negotiate. It would be cool if diplomacy was not totaly abstracted but that you could actually see the carebear king his reaction to your diplomatic proposals.

It would also be cool if members of befriended civilizations would have an animation to show that they are friends when they meet each other, so that the carebears would hug there little pony allies when they met :)

What other things could be included in the dimplomacy of spore?

I can't wait to play with my carebear civilization who help all other civilizations until the whole galaxy is transformed in one big happy galaxy that cares :)

No idea about diplomacy with other tribes during the tribal stage.

Maybe during city.

I'd like to know too how this system would work.

There was a game i loved to play it was a simple space conquest game involving planets and artifacts and ship combat.  It was called empire something on www.download.com and I have tried very hard to find that game to download again but i cant find it anywhere :'(

ANYWAY my favorite activity was researching new technologies and giving them to people and that increased our rating... eventually we would sign a non agression pact and ultimately join in a federation.  When that happened you basically peacefully took over everything they had... you were given control anyway.

I did this with every single alien species in each universe map untill you got to the very last one and had to kill them off.

I wouldn't mind some system like that, as once you get to the city era you evolve technology more then biology.
FYI if anyone has head of this game it was shareware.  the only thing about it that was different was that the game had artifacts on planets that increased your civ stats somehow.  It was my personal mission to steal every single one with spies once they were all collected.

I miss that game if anyone has heard its true title or know where I can redownload it, I would be the happiest dan in the whole 20!
I survived the flood of 2008 and all I got was this crappy homelessness.

I loved nuetral! They can attack you but your subjects won't do anything about it.

I always liked the games that let you attack your 'allies' without them retaliating.

There was a skirmish type like that in RA2 or something, I've forgotten now.

Will wright isn't a violent game developer. Even while spore is a real time game did he compared the planet fase of it with civilization and NOT with age of empires. Because of those 2 things do I think that there shall be peacefull ways to deal with other civilizations. Most likely would the peacefull ways be at least as efficient as the violent ones(if not more efficient).

Will wrights has a huge girl/non violent gamer fanbase. Those gamers would be shocked if killing there cute(or not so cute) neightbours is the only way to advance in the game.

He also literaly said that you can play the galatic game on the diplomatic star trek way. If they have diplomacy on the galactic level shall they most likely also have it on the civilization level.

I really would enjoy a diplomatic way to play the game instead of conquering.  Have some other species backing me up while I destory everyone else.

I'll form alliances with the tougher and smarter nations. Then when they least expect it.... KABOOM!
