I have read some of your posts. For the most part the tone and how you construct them make me want to scroll past. However, I will take the time to mention a few things.
There is a reason why the diplomacy screen is the way it is and how it has evolved.
In Civ 5 they had diplomacy. For YEARS folks were complaining that the games diplomacy sucked because there is NOT enough information for a player to understand how things are going. This is a game Mari, not real world. The player needs to know who likes him and who does not in order to have FUN. Eventually Civ 5 after 3 expansions finally got the diplomacy right. It is fun to interact with an AI and fun to have one as your ally only to go back and invade later game.
In reference to some of your OTHER posts I will state that the Developers can make a game that beats you. Its not hard at all. They can give you a diplomo screen where you know nothing and the AI lies to you. They can also make it so that EVERY ai finds you and without handicaps goes strait to your home planet and invades you, game over. The reason games are not like this is, it is not fun. Your ideas sound like the impossible setting on Xcom which is tedious and NOT fun.
You have posted here dozens of times over and over about how YOU feel the game should be. This is fine but you certainly do not speak for me and I suspect for dozens if not 100's of others who also play the game.
Plenty of folks were in Alpha and Beta breaking the game. Our job was to play it, find bugs and see how we can improve the fun factor. Some of your statements are mean and false and do a disservice to those of us who spent time to send in crash reports and exploits during the last year of Alpha and Beta. You could use a bit of diplomacy yourself but that is another topic.
Sure there are ways to beat the AI, sure there are ways to build ships to crush them and sure you can exploit the AI via diplomacy. That is one of the founding X's in a 4x game.
By the way, the developers are a great lot. Thousands of Alpha's participated weekly in how to make the game more 'fun' not 'harder because I can break it'. This discussion is every Friday at noon via Stardock's twitch channel. I invite you to participate with courteous and constructive input.
In the end Mari you will need to team up with someone who can mod exactly what you want. Ask someone to Mod into YOUR game a way to HIDE all the assets that an AI shows and have every response be bland or false. Personally I would never play that in any game but you are free to do what you like.
