Two quick questions.
How does the AI (any level but godlike specifically) determine your threat level? I just went from ripe to be conquered to my military build up concerns them in 7 turns by building 7 ships......
Why will the AI declare war from the other side of galaxy? Drengin and Snarthi are both terrible for this on insane maps. There can be 700 tiles between us yet they think I am a viable target when clearly I am not (see above).
Personally I believe the AI needs a bit of a overhaul in the diplomacy department, but I am curious on other peoples thoughts on this game mechanic, both on how it exactly works and their opinions of it.
