Added dialog to all the foreign affairs panel that lists each nation's stance with all other nations and tribes.
Adjusts the foreign nation dialog box to list stances with all nations
The result looks pretty awful, don't you agree? Somebody recently suggested adding a panel similar to that of Civ3/4 in order to visualize foreign relations.
Another problem with this patch is that it shows stance settings that are not usually reported to the player in the usual new turn messages, such as those for uncontacted pairs of nations.

I agree modifying the foreign affairs panel looks pretty bad. I'm looking at a new stance panel although the idea of a K^16 graph to define relations seems like it'd look pretty gross as well. I'm doing a table that still provides a visual way and I've attached a screenshot. If you think it looks ok I'll clean it up and submit a new patch. Otherwise if you have suggestions for a different direction I'd appreciate it.
I assume England has been selected? That should be clearly visible. I think this is much better than your first idea. A full table might not be that bad actually, especially if the nations are sorted.
I've been cleaning up a little bit, I still need to make the nation selected more prevalent but I had a question regarding who gets to see what stances in regards to mpope's comment.
Right now I'm working under the assumption so that you can only see a nation's stance's peace/war status if you have met one of the nations. However, in InGameInputHandler it also displays a message in the event of two nations going to war. So is the incorrect stance status that "peace" is being shown when two nations go to war that the player hasn't contacted and then declare a cease fire? If so is there a place where a "I think two nations are still fighting even though they might not be" value is set? I don't want to introduce any new state to the game, the alternative being I believe to just keep that information hidden for now.
Finally, does full table mean retaining this style with the buttons that shift between the perspective of each nation or are you talking about a single matrix that describes the stances of everyone versus everyone?
A single matrix.
This patch no longer applies, and is of doubtful Col1 compatibility.
