RC4 of the 1.51 patch is now available. It incorporates the latest diplomacy fine-tuning I've made for CoM with the purpose of making diplomacy more playable/less hostile.

-Higher bar for the "is the player becoming a threat" declaration of war check. Currently the bar is set in a way that you need 20+10*Difficulty Level-Personality modifier to always avoid war regardless of your army …Read more >
