I haven't found out yet whether there exists a (trade) agreement overview.
That is, is there some list of all active agreements or do I always have to check per other civ in its agreement history?
There is only the deal history you already found (Diplomacy -> Diplomacy Overview -> Deal history). The history differentiates between active and older deals, so you only have to check the list of active agreements.
Lets hope they provide some better overview with a future patch.
You can also click "declare war" in the diplomacy screen and the game will present you with a list of current deals and trade arrangements. Just don't click "yes" after that unless you want to.
"By building alliances and friendships with other factions and empires, you become highly valuable as a friend and simply too dangerous as an enemy. When you have accumulated enough Diplomatic Victory points in the great game of galactic diplomacy, you become the dominant political force in the galaxy." So, how do I accumulate Diplomatic Victory points? Does any kind of trade count? Like... agreements with everyone and everyone likes me, what else can/should I do to accrue points?
If you propose to the AI a trade agreement which the AI perceives to be favorable to them, they will respond with things like "your offer is generous and I accept". In the attitude summary, however, I could not find anything that mentions these agreements. Is there any diplomatic consequence for them? For example, if I give gifts to other civilizations, will it make future trade deals with them better for me, or will it dissuade them from attacking me, or make them approve of friendship requests, etc.?
Some factions really like me and a trade route is possible but they still and repeatedly refuse to trade with me – and other factions are neutral towards me but happily agree to a trade agreement. Can anybody explain the game mechanics the AI uses to determine if they accept or decline an offered trade agreement?
I am new to steam trading, and today I found that I have been reported as a scammer. I do not know why, I didn't invite anyone to trade with me in the same time. All the trades I have done were in the forum posts - I send a trade offer and the other person accepts or declines. So can this report be disputed or removed?
When a research agreement has finished and you receive your free technology, does your research partner receive the same technology? I would guess that both parties receive one of their respective "next" technologies, which may or may not be the same, right? Update: This question has been made obsolete by the June 2011 patch. Research agreements now give a tech boost instead of a free tech. Tech boosts start at 50% of the median value of all techs you can research. Can be boosted to 100% if you both start Rationalism and build the Porcelain Tower.
Possible Duplicate: In Civ 5, are Declarations of Friendship worth it? Being somebody's friend is good because it gets you better trade agreements. Super. But it's also dangerous, as I've experienced too many times, because if my friend ever find a reason to denounce me then suddenly everyone hates me. Because of this I rarely accept friendship requests any more, and I never offer them myself. Plus, friends tend to ask for favors once in a while. :( My question is, in which situations would I want to be somebody's friend? Should I try to make friends with warmongering civs
I have entered a Neutrality Agreement with an empire that attacked me. If I decide that I later want to attack that empire, I have to break the treaty. What are the consequences if I break the treaty?
I'd like my neighbor to stop moving units through my territory, but I can't seem to find an option to cancel our Open Borders agreement. In the deal history screen, I can see an Open Borders agreement from well over 30 turns ago that doesn't even show up under Active Deals. The trade screen just says that we already have an Open Borders agreement. Am I missing something, or is there no way for me to cancel this agreement?
I had an elf caravan visit, do some trade and leave. They're definitely gone, because other caravans have come and used the depot. The elves seem to have forgotten one of their folks. He just wanders around my farms and stockpiles. Is this a bug? What the heck is he doing? Might this have anything to do with our agreement to not cut more than 100 trees per year?
