Prospective Posted March 4, 2005 Report Share Posted March 4, 2005 Hi all, Just noticed an Advanced neutral showing up on a PMAP and am looking for suggestions/options as to bring them into the fold in the most beneficial way (eg: least damage to them so that I can benefit from their inclusion to the empire). I have yet to do an ORB so I don't have a complete picture of the situation. What I do know is that there are 164 pop units, so it seems to be a small advanced neutral. Can anyone offer insight? Is 164 pops relatively small for an advanced neutral? Is that an average size? What's the best way to bring them in? Diplomacy? If yes, what do I do? I read something about giving them gifts… how does that work? What seems to be the most convincing? Should I give them pharmaceuticals (drug em into submission)? Do I give less valuable items like water or fertilizer (bullshit them into the empire??)? What are the mechanics of it? Do I simply do an OC order on some goods, then expect them to jump in and say OK!!!?? This is my first foray into the diplomatic field and I'd like advice. OR, should I simply drop troops? What is the typical result of that action? Will I kill all the neutral pops? Will troops end up destroying facilities that might be in place? I'd kind of like them to come into the empire in a more or less intact fashion, but am not adverse to trying the military solution. If I opt for a military solution, any suggestion as to the types and number of troops to send in? Will I get details regarding their military forces on an ORB? Troop units/strengths? I can't imagine they'll have too much with a base population of 164. Again, any guidance would be most appreciated. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
