Alright, so playing recent game on 1.006: I managed to create a federation through the commie-monkeys after spamming moons, attitude buildings, and trade routes (after the moons) between Sylax/Pitians/Andors. Then, really all I had to do to get my already superior federation (military wise) to kill all the other races was just spam falsify conspiracy twice (-60 relation) for 3-6k credits on Sylax and Pitians, and watch as they brutally murdered/suicide-podded all the other races. I think that's a bit overpowered if you can just cause a solar-wide war for like.. 3k x 4  = 12k credits. (as a sidenote, how do you start a war otherwise? The political option to get the races to attack eachother is never available for me.)

Also, I tried to get the Evuck to join the federation by spamming "tax breaks" (to get their health down to -2000) like 50 times for 20-30k but then when I tried to make the decision all it did was give me 30 influence with them, they didn't join. I am not aware if this persists across other races.

Do you have a savegame for the bug with them not joining the federation?

Also:

* The amount of resource income generated per trade route has been reduced to 2/5 its former value.
** The amount of Economic RCI gain from trade routes is now 1/20th as high as it used to be, and the amount of attitude gain is now 1/10th as high as before.

* Now every time you plant false evidence of a conspiracy, the race you planted the evidence with becomes more resistant to future plants, whether or not you succeed or fail.  This resistance is reduced over time.
** Different races also have different susceptibilities to false evidence now, and different amounts that those chances of success fall each time you do one, and different amounts of time it takes for the chances to go back up.

Thanks!

Thanks!

* In order to convince a race to enact huge tax breaks, they must now have both an environmental rating and a medical rating of at least -100.
** This removes an easy exploit for getting certain races to Scarytown RCI levels.

* Fixed a bug where the new RCI-desperation-based join-federation deals were not actually adding the races to the federation.
