    I wouldn't recommend using the Simulation mode, in its current state, to accurately gauge how candidates will perform in elections. It neglects certain factors such as events and ballot access that are important to accurate results. Ultimately you'll find that few campaigns are impossible (at least when playing as one of the top two parties) once you've become better at the game. I recommend you just keep learning mechanics and you'll get it soon.

    Virginia's 10th Congressional District Election, 2018

    Sorry, I'm awful at maps and the one I made for this already has several issues such as Manassas and Manassas Park being in the completely wrong locations and I neglected to put one of the weird parts of Fairfax as Prince William. And with the very small and specific scope of NY-14 I doubt I'd know what regions to include.

    Of course. I'm updating it currently to make it more accurate - Hill normally gets destroyed thanks to Comstock's superior campaign. I'll probably add a "Donald Trump" issue that will give him a significant advantage in the Republican primary, and a disadvantage in the general election.

    The Virginia Senate primary field wasn't that interesting. A Confederate-lover who will lose, an evangelical who will lose, or a tea partier who will lose by a slightly smaller amount.

    "bitmap size must equal copy operation"

    Iirc, that issue happens because one of the candidate portraits is not 87x75 as required, or it's in the wrong format.

    Virginia's 10th congressional district, my own, is having an interesting election this year. The incumbent, establishment Republican, Barbara Comstock, is being challenged from the right by Shak Hill, who criticizes her not-conservative-enough voting record. The Democratic field is large, with State Senator Jennifer Wexton leading the pack, with strong fundraising from a lot of lesser-known candidates that could result in surprising results. (shameless link to my PI campaign about it) Also I accidentally dragged the "insert other media" button into here. I can't remove it for some reason, so enjoy. Insert other media

    The first release is finished in time for today's primary. 2018 - VA-10.zip I will be updating this over time with new endorsers, events, what-if candidates, and improvements. And eventually post it on the campaigns page.

    Nice. A lot of Democratic primaries seem to be proxy battles between the establishment and the Bernie Sanders/progressive wing of the party, somewhat similar to the situation in the past few years with Republican primaries that are frequently fought between the establishment and the Tea Party wings. It'll definitely be interesting to see how the factionalism plays out.

    First screen. The independent cities (Winchester, Manassas Park, and Manassas) are a bit squished, but it works. I'll be releasing more screens as I continue working. I'm considering splitting up the regions a bit more if possible, because the popular vote AI is still broken and targets counties that aren't favorable to them (because they still think it's winner-take-all), so there are sometimes weird results on the map. I want to flesh out the primaries more before releasing it.

    I wish there was a better way to express how shitty Nathan Larson is in-game other than just giving him all 1s in attributes.
  11. I return from my random 10-month forum exile to introduce a work in progress scenario based on the upcoming congressional election in my district. It's expected to be one of the most heavily targeted in the nation, and with a crowded field ranging from the incumbent congresswoman, a federal prosecutor who moved into the district just to run for this race, and an admitted pedophile and white supremacist independent that wants to lead an incel rebellion against the evil feminists, this race is sure to be interesting. I don't have screenshots on this computer, but I've finished the regions and I'm working on adding more candidates prior to Tuesday's primary.

    I'm definitely interested. I love campaigns with strong third parties.
  14. That came out rather aggressive, sorry
  15. I played 3 and 4 and in my opinion they are garbage. The developers clearly spent most of their time on these cheap-looking and unnecessary cutscenes that add nothing to the gameplay. I wrote a rather lengthy review of the third one and another for the fourth one. These are games priced like triple A titles but are full of bugs and unnecessary DLC. Not to mention they all seem to run on the same engine probably made in 1998.
