Trying to establish peace/ceasefire
I have the latest balance mod, in the game am playing I am several levels behind a opposing A.I player, by that i mean it has more advanced hull designs and three levels further in shielding. Prior to the conflict I had seven systems, am now down to three. The race am against is the phong confederation (who i hate to the core due to their crystiline weapons)
The war came about because I thought the race was weaker then it actually was and my intelligence estimates got it wrong big time so am losing and need to save face and my fledgling empire. While there is no perfect 'peace walkthrough tips' what is the best way to sue for peace against a empire that you cannot win?
