So, several times the discussion has popped up that other civs should become hostile with you because they're so happy with you, and joining your faction.
I find this nonsensical, as I should have just pointed out, but some folks feel this is not the case.
Perhaps a middle road?
If we are allied, should our cultures not join, and work together, rather than be taken as competitive?
I could understand a situation wherein one culture is overwhelming, and the other has no chance of maintaining balance, the weaker should be subsumed, but in the case of two equal powers, perhaps a middle zone of melded influence?
Also, perhaps the options for a Neutral Zone of zero influence, between unlike factions?
More random thoughts.
I'm rather tired of eating my allies. This wouldn't bother me so much, if I were playing Drengin, I suppose.
