I've been curious about this for a while.
As you know, in Galactic Civilizations 3, each player has a certain skill in diplomacy that, along with a bunch of other factors, determine how much the AI players think of him (or her, let's assume he's male for now). This skill can be modified by various planetary improvements and the Likable/Unlikable race attribute. What I would like to know, is what effect does this skill/rating have on other human players.
As far as I can tell (through playing the game and through researching this online), this "skill" only effects how AI players think of you. This would be a bit disappointing because it would make races like the Krynn and the Thalians, who are Unlikable, to have an advantage against human players because that Unlikable trait wouldn't be a penalty at all. Conversely, the Terrans would have a disadvantage against human players because their Likable trait would do nothing. I really hope I'm missing something and that one (or more) of you will let me know.
Thanks in advance
