I'm currently in the civilization stage, and I'm an economic based city. Last time I played, several other cities appeared. I clicked on one of them and noticed that one of the options was to "buy the city". I clicked it, but it said I first needed to create a trade route. I created a trade route with the city, but then the option to buy the city disappeared. So, how do you buy off another city? Also, how do you change your relationship with other cities? Several cities have the yellow face as our relationship, and I tried gifting them, but they didn't become more friendly towards me. Would gifting them more money at once help? Thanks in advance for your help!

starting a trade route will get you money, improve the relationship, and start an economic takeover. when the takeover bar is complete, the option to purchase the city will show up.

you can improve your relationship with other civilizations by giving them money, but only to a point (i think it's +150, but i don't remember for sure).

you can also compliment them for +10 (just once)

What you need to do is having a trade nation, and you can only trade with blue and green faced nations.

I also forgot to add, the price of the city depends on what difficulty (I think), how much they like you, and what is inside the city. For example, if you trade with a blue smiley nation with like 1 building on hard, you can buy it for 4k sporebucks.

If you give a little money to other empires, your relationship will improve a little ; but if you give him a lot of money in gifts, your relationship will improve a lot.

No that is not true (i'd send Video of it if i could but i cannot, due that i do not send to Youtube) but sometimes it is possible with Yellow Face(best for 25+relation) but i have once traded with only +8 relation because of the Dire need of it...(as in their empire thought it best to have a Trade Route with me at the time...if you want a video i could try and get one later if you NEED proof...

You need to trade with them using economic vehicles.

True. It depends on your vehicles 'economic power' as to how low the relationship can be to get a trade route.

As Nedninja says, you need to select an economic city and right click on their city (or left click, I cant remember), then select 'propose trade route' once the vehicle reaches the city a message will pop up and the empire will either accept or decline. If they accept, select all your vehicles and click on their city and they'll start trading. If they decline, then try improving your relationship or your economic power.

True...Except it doesn't need to be an economic city you trade with(and i believe its left click)

Hm.. As long as they like you and you have a economic vehicle, you should be able to buy the cities.
