    My first advice: if someone wants bonus resources that require oil and lead (or uranium) and if it is possible to repeatedly delete a nation & create a new one, everybody try to create one with the desired resources, since this way they won't degrade the environment. Unfortunately the chance to get oil&lead is only 1/400.

    You do realize that getting trades when you have oil and lead is a pain right?

    I know, that's why I found Frigo's statement silly. Having oil and lead is a curse.

    Having Lumber and Cattle is a curse.

    Yet, you have a full rig of bonus resources.

    It does indeed. In fact that's an awesome bit of advice for building a strong nation;
    Bribe other players to trade with you.

    Lying about FA is the quickest way to find yourself in a war, and if they state thats the reason they attacked you, GC might not back you....
    Avoid the mess and pay up, or do like me and never pay. Most of my trades last for a long time, no money exchanged.

    mmm...stickification.
    It would be prudent to pay them as soon as possible, wobbler. You don't want a random war declaration to pop up on your nation, with the reason, "Give me mah moneh!!!1one"

    You should pay what you've promised, not doing so is unethical.

    If they're all 30 power, maybe they're going to have their nations deleted soon, or are hurting because you never paid them.
    Either way, you could be sinking fast.
