I just don't get into agreements with my victims.

My approach depends on the empire in question.  I'm very fond of liberation wars, for example...  ;)

Those people aren't going to liberate themselves :)

I'm too Federation-minded. I tend to play peaceful for the most part.

At this point, all I can really say is that colony management actually does feel like less of a chore, and I like how first-contact works now.  it feels a tad more involved and less abstract, which appeals to me. 

I also like the first contact system.  I haven't gotten very far into, but I'm liking the espionage also
Me too. The first contact system makes the eXplore part more mysterious

I wouldn't really have a problem if nonaggression pacts required influence upkeep; I can understand the rationale behind that.  But to also require influence upkeep for commercial, migration, and research treaties is a bit too much.  :doh:

Ah, now I understand what you were referring to.  I just don't get into agreements with my victims.

AARs / Not a full AAR: but had fun trying out By Stealth And Sea.

If you get a chance to try out or buy By Stealth And Sea by DVG games, do it. Solid game. Again, these are just a couple of screenshots of our play-testing it out for a full game. I did not you tube tape this. I think I will the next time we get a chance to try it out again. http://lairoflubidius.blogspot.com/2021/04/by-stealth-and-sea-solid-game-design.html
