Is it just me or the AI is completely unreasonable when trading even if I have a decent diplomacy level? Playing on the Genius level, is it because of that?
But it's so bad that I'm tempted to just turn off tech trading altogether which is a shame.
It seems really hard to work out any kind of trade that is decent, I have to pay through the nose for anything I want.
What is your experience with this part of the game?
(Edit: I know that at some point back in GalCiv 2 as well, it was way too easy to abuse trading with the AI. This was not good indeed. But now it seems to be the complete opposite to me, which is also not good.
