Hi,

First off I have to say I really like your new game and I have been playing the game for around 6 hours now :)

But my Galaxy is pretty stale right now, only two factions and the like each other and me. So there isn't that much to do:

and

I trade with them and just kill off random ships, sometimes taking a quest (not many left)

What to do?

Cheers

Well, since you need to be ally with both of them to win, you gotta work on that faction. Do what few quests are left, do lots of trading at the stores, even donate gear. You can also campout right next to one of their planets and attack passing enemies (find a hotspot for best results), and you'll get tons of faction that way (or escort their ships and attack nearby enemies for the same type of faction reward).

If you're a gambler (and don't mind the potential for losing faction) you can sabotage them or something, and then do the quests that will result from that in order to fix the problem you caused, for faction of course.

No matter what you do though, the only way to win is to gain faction, and since there's no real inter-faction tension left any more, the faster you can do it the better. You already have enough faction with the The Dryads that they can probably be be bought off at this point too.

Try asking for non-aggression pacts and mutual defense agreements for slight boosts along the way. Defending their planets and/or ships is probably the best way to earn rep other than just buying them out. As kerzain said, you have to be in an alliance with all remaining factions to win.

Also, if you offer a treaty to them and it looks like they are negative about it, you can click on the "What would make this trade possible?" button; and they may accept a treaty for a price. If the price is too high, go back to the game and get rep other ways till the price is right.

Also note that when 2 or more races are allied, doing quests for any of them increases your rep with all allied races. So by doing a quest for Dryad, you also get rep with Utopian if both are allied.

What has also helped me a lot in "finishing" a few slower games like this is to ask for the next level in treaty and click the "what would make this work" type button, (not sure exact wording). Sometimes is will only be like 3,000 gold other times like much higher, but it can help save you a lot of time if you don't mind spending some money to move on to the next sector/difficulty

I mush confess that I haven't tried the Trade button under Relations, suddenly it all makes sense :D ;)

Thanks again.

I really pushed (and lost) to have the Relations/Trade button renamed "Negotiate" which would make more sense to me - and not be confused with trading items in your inventory/cargo.

Hmm I think that your suggestion make more sense ;)

+1. This would definitely be much clearer.
