    Feature You'd Most Like to See

    One solution to this would be being able to add attribute issues beyond the main four. They would be treated as issues for purposes of attack ads and so on, but wouldn't effect the game in other ways such as the core 4 attribute issues (Leadership, Experience, Issue Familiarity, and Integrity) do.

    Yes, Experience could be made into more categories. The game has a way to cover this to an extent, which is by adding an issue such as 'Foreign Experience' and then locking the starting positions. My concern with making those kinds of categories is the game starts to become even more complex than it is.

    Total anxiety.

    @Wiw The world's a good place! If you're watching a lot of negative news, you might want to stop watching it (or Twitter, which is the worst). Get outside, focus on your community and those you know. I run a political game company and hardly ever watch the news!

    When will we get popular vote for primaries?

    We are releasing an official Florida - 2018 - Senatorial campaign, but it doesn't have primaries. The primaries for that Senate race at this point don't look competitive.

    When will we get popular vote for primaries?

    It's not at the top of the list right now, so I don't have a specific time frame.

    "bitmap size must equal copy operation"

    Yes, it sounds like you have an image that isn't the right size. You can send me a zipped (compressed) version of the campaign. https://270soft.com/contact

    Set to all option

    Having region groups, which can then all be set to some value, is a good idea and might be implemented.

    Game save location

    You can already select save game locations. I've noted adding this for User Scenarios.

    "bitmap size must equal copy operation"

    The Endorsers button where? Which campaign?

    Error Message at 11PM on Election Night

    @The Last Republican It looks like a custom campaign, can you tell me which one?

    A Frightening Vision Just Hit Me

    @Patine An interesting idea - I don't think Andrew Scheer is a particularly strong leader, but time will tell. The simplest way for this to happen would be if Ford had a very good first year, then Scheer steps aside. I don't know how likely the latter is, though.

    Ontario 2018 Scenario

    I was unable to replicate the bug, but upon inspecting the relations initialization code, there was a bug that may have been causing this. This is fixed for the next update.

    2.7.2 campaign problem

    Best way to figure this out is to send me a copy (compressed) of the campaign. https://270soft.com/contact

    Flag Style Question?

    Using a band sometimes allows you to use original dimensions for a source flag image (so, not cropping the original flag image or distorting it).

    Ontario 2018 Scenario

    Ok, I'll try to replicate these things. Sounds like there is a bug in initializing player relations.

    Ok, I'll try to recreate this - thanks for this.

    Vote fluctuations in newest Canada version

    @RI Democrat, Thanks for this. The campaigns do not contain sub-riding information on voting patterns. These are random fluctuations in the number of votes, but I agree the algorithm could be tweaked to avoid the sorts of shifts you point out here.

    VP Issue after convention

    This is a known problem and should be fixed with the next update - thanks for this.
  19. Calling all Florida political experts! Do you want to help design an official Florida 2018 – Senatorial campaign? If so, read on. We are moving ahead on an official Florida 2018 – Senatorial campaign for President Infinity, which currently probably will be a Sen. Bill Nelson vs. Gov. Rick Scott contest, for the upcoming elections in November. If you have knowledge of Florida politics and are interested in helping with campaign content (experience creating campaigns helpful, but familiarity with President Infinity is all that’s required) please let me know through e-mail ( https://270soft.com/contact ). This would be a volunteer position, but you would get credit in the President Infinity game and get to show off your design chops.

    @lizphairphreak All interesting ideas. I like 3. in particular, and part of that is expanding negotiations, which has already happened to an extent. Thanks for this.

    PR Seat App

    The problem is not how to calculate seats - that's the easy part. The problem is making it work with everything else, including computer AI.

    @FrancisXKennedy As Patine mentioned, fundraising is abstracted from specifics such as large money or small money donors.

    Ontario 2018 Scenario

    1. " On my own Relations screen, Horwath has 92 with Ford, 33 with Wynne, and 34 with Schreiner. " PCs and Liberals relations are set to Very Bad (0) to start. Starting a game as the PCs (Ford), relations are 1 with Liberals, 1 with NDP. This is as they should be. Do Horwath and Ford have 92 on the first day, or is this after a significant amount of campaigning? 2. " I appear to have a -2 rating for my Transit & Infrastructure position in North York and North Toronto " This is a bug - thanks for this. Looking at the electoral districts, the bonuses are correct. 3. "The following issues are listed as possible to have scandals: integrity, transit, education, democratic reform, taxes, housing " An error in the campaign - noted. 4. " Day 0 and Wynne just released an attack ad on Schreiner too. Okay then." This should be happening infrequently - I've noted it. 5. " Ridings where one or more parties do not have the candidate's name " This will be updated - thanks for this.
