I finally won my first game. I still am not sure of the requirements for two races to be willing to join the federation, but I managed to start it with the andors and evucks. I then immediately had the acutians and peltians join. I then spent a bunch of time improving my relationship with the thoraxians, whose flagship I stole, then got them into the federation. After waiting a while for the races in the federation to attack the burlusts and the skylaxians, both of whom nobody liked, I decided to launch planet crackers at both of them to end the game.  For some reason I was unable to activate the option that declares war on another race. I was experiencing major lag, so it took a long time before I was able to launch my second cracker. Even though it massively reduced the acutians' influence with the other races, they stayed in the federation and let me win the game.

Sweet!  You were having massive lag on the solar map, though?  Is that what I'm understanding?  Do you have a save from in there anywhere that we can profile against?  I don't know if it is a CPU thing or a GPU thing; sometimes there can be a ton ton ton of ships out there, and we may need to stop drawing extras guarding planets after a certain number build up, for instance.  It's kind of a "yeah, we get the point, that place is a hornet's nest" sort of a situation, heh. ;)

I could never convince people to declare war either. Maybe I have to actually plant an informant and spread conspiracies, but not even the Burlusts would listen.

I think it was a cpu thing, as it was also happening when I was doing dispatch missions.
