Visualise trading opportunites from one screen
Adds a new Trade Opportunities tab to the Diplomatic screens
* Find a resource on the top row (your resoures) with a green number - in this picture Wine.
* Scan down the column looking for red zeros
* Scan along that row looking for green numbers that have a corresponding red/yellow zero in the top row
* The combination of green resources gives you a trade opportunity
So in this picture I can trade Wine to
* Songhai for Cotton
* Rome for Dyes
* Korea for Sugar
Of those three, I already have a Research Agreement with Korea, Rome doesn't have enough cash for an RA, but Songhai does. So I'd probably do a combined deal of Wine + RA = Sugar + RA with Songhai
Which CS to "buy"
Well I could go for any of them, but I need Silver, Ivory or Incense to start a "We Love The King Day" in one or more cities (indicated by the yellow zeros in the top row), so it would make sense to "buy" a CS that has one of those luxuries. If I hover over the yellow zeros it will show me which cities want that resource, and as it happens, my capital and another city want Silver, so my choice is now down to three City States. I'm going for a cultural win, so one of the cultured two would be best, and if I hover over their icons I see that one is allied to Songhai (who can certainly out-bid me next turn) and the other is allied to Persia (who is locked in wars and about to exit the game anyway) so I'll go for that one. I click on the icon and go into the CS's diplomacy screen, give them a cash "donation", pick up the luxury and watch my citizens love me
