Diplomacy? Espionage? Trade?

Hello,

I have researched everything there was to research in the tech tree, but there doesn't seem to be any option for diplomacy, espionage/sabotage or trade.

Have I missed anything that actually does any of these?

Short version: it is planned, but nothing has been added so far.

Yep. Definitely on the roadmap, but not yet implemented (or even designed).

Diplomacy is lackluster. Also it stays in 'proposal state' option you've selected, without any effect. You have to cancel and resend proposal for the AI to accept/deny and there's no indication of their attitude to you or what you can do to improve it unlike in EU4.

It would be more correct to say diplomacy is only very rudimentary implemented yet. Only some very basic stuff is possible at all, of course it's lackluster. And it will be for quite a while until we get around to really flesh out this part of the game. First the game mechanics and elements diplomacy can build upon are sufficiently in place can we start working on that.

About espionage: Is it already possible to steal technology by invading planets?
Once I "invented" laser 2 but didn't remember set it on the list but on the turn before I invaded an enemies planet.

No tech stealing (yet). It can be that you inadvertently advanced a few turns with surplus research points that end up in that laser 2 tech (automatic allocation of surplus RP to the cheapest unresearched tech).

That sounds possible. Could be that I didn't recognized the red ! at science. :oops:
Thank's for your support :)

The only one I'm aware of is Lembala'Lam, where you pick up some planetary stealth research.
