Use the following trick to steak resources from other empires in single player mode. Start a new game and play as usual. Allow the other empires time to build up their resources. When you want to steal resources, save the game, quit, and then reload another empire to play as. With your other empire, go to the "Diplomacy" menu. Send the resources from your current empire to your original empire. Save the game, quit, and reload your original empire. Repeat this as many times as desired.
