how do you stop elves from warmongering?
« on: July 23, 2018, 03:38:31 pm »

I added about 5 new races and civs to go with them, but every time I generate a world, the elves always dominate the other civs.
even though they use wooden weapons. They always seem to have double the amount of wars (mostly offensive) than the civs with the second highest amount of wars.
they always seem to conquer other towns and leave them populated with only 1 person. Other civs never seem to try and stop them.
and they win so much? WHY?

So if I run a world for a long time, eventual the elves kill off 2 races entirely and make a few others with only 1 weak civ.
I see elves as defensive rather than offensive. the way they act should be sort of like: if you come into our forest we will kill you. rather than: if you are in the vicinity of any trees we will kill you (a bit exaggerated).

Could there be a serious clash of ethics between the elves and the new civs? Elves are cannibals, which might cause some tension. Remove that, and shift some of their other values towards non violence and see if that helps.
