That is what I want to say to N1 here:
N1 didn't realize how lucky he was, our relations were "close" but I could crush it/him/her like a bug. (btw the deal where he gives 11bc was acceptable).
Well that's just aliens for you, they probably thought you were offering a hundred Australian credits or something.
Why were you even offering the deal to begin with?
Just to see if the aliens are stupid?
Sometimes the AI does really weird things in terms of diplomacy.
I think I had offered Yor something like "Advanced Aquatic Colonization" for "Aquatic Colonization", which was refused despite the "close" realations.
I usually try some money during negotiations, to give me some idea of whether it is worth trying other combinations of trades or what sort of techs I can squeeze out of minor races. Sometimes they won't give something at any price (I click on my money, an amount comes up which is less than my treasury but still displayed in red), sometimes I am only a few bc's-worth away from a deal.
