I accidentally started a war with another civ that I was friends with. What can I do to make that civ friendly with me again besides signing a peace treaty?

    Your best bet would be to simply load the previous save game. From my experience with Civ, I've never managed to make peace or forge an alliance with the AI; they always refused unless they're the ones who asked. – Nolonar Nov 6 '15 at 17:29

    @Nolonar Not true, I often make peace with AIs. Heck, they often are so desperate when I go to them I can ask for cities and they accept! – Fezodge Nov 6 '15 at 17:33

    @FezodgeIII. It is true, though. I was talking about my experience with the game, not about what is or isn't possible. Every time I ask for peace, the AI refuses saying he'll be crushing me soon, then I conquer their capital before my turn ends, and next turn they beg me to take one of their other cities in return for peace. – Nolonar Nov 6 '15 at 17:50

    You should accidentally kill the civ you declared war to... – Jonathan Drapeau Nov 6 '15 at 17:50

Some leader personalities will accept a lite warring without penalty while others will condemn you for wars they Declare. Thus, it depends.

Start by trading a peace deal in their favor. Next, give them another favorable trade. Beyond that, your best bet is to follow the normal diplomatic path to friendship: declare friendship with their friends and them, denounce their enemies, and make more favorable trades after the old benefits disappear
