How do you treat friendly NPRs in your games?
« on: March 21, 2016, 08:16:18 AM »
Hello,

In my game the goal is to discover all the systems.  My first NPR was very hostile, so they had to die.  But now I am nearly finished with exploration, but found two more NPRs, one of them is really friendly and likely very low tech level (they don't even have spaceships as far as i can tell), the other one is slightly friendly but surely very xenophobic b/c diplomacy progress is veeeery slow.  These guys have a lot of ships though, and they didn't attack me yet, but they make the game very slow b/c pf their ships.  I am tempted to destroy them just because of this.  It would surely be easier now since they haven't spread out yet i guess.
So I was just curious how do you treat your NPR races in your games? In particular, friendly NPRs? Do you let them live, or destroy them asap?

I like to have long wars with enemy NPRs, but with friendly ones I tend to be friendly and do some trading and eventually get into an alliance.

Are they staying friendly in the long run? Don't backstab you later with your own high tech?
How do you trade with them? You mean, the civilians doing the trading, right?

Yes, you find one of their colonies (and they one of yours), enter a trade agreement, and civies will trade and generate income.

The complete genocide of every other race in the galaxy is the only possible and safe solution.

Every single sentinel galactic civilization consumes more "Galactic Processing Power", so the only solution is to integrate into a single sentinel civilization ;D.

My last game ended abruptly because of bugged NPR ships somewhere created zillions of error messages, so this is another reason for a preventative cleansing.  ;)

I always keep it in mind when I'm dealing with enemies. I drop a few hundred worldburner bombs on them.

I've never actually managed to stay on friendly terms with xenos. Not for more then a few decades at least.

Even if we have tradeships going back and forth between our colonies they always end up launching missiles at my ships sooner or later.
Nowadays I just give all xenos I come across the "warhammer solution" as soon as possible.
Constant optimism will not solve your problems, but it will annoy enough people to be worth the effort.
