    My 2020 Scenario - Now Available For Download

    Thank god Avenatti declined a 2020 bid. Now I can finally turn him off. Deval Patrick, who I wasn't including because I never expected him to run, also declined.

    Is political compass Left Biased?

    I'm no expert on France but that doesn't seem to match anything I've read about Macron.

    My 2020 Scenario - Now Available For Download

    I actually avoided downloading your scenario until I got 1.0 of mine out to avoid copying anything you did. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what's going on with general election percentages during the primaries - looks like a significantly larger amount of the electorate is undecided between parties for some reason. Starting in the general election shows a much more decided, partisan, and realistic populace. I'll make a more thorough response to these in a bit but I'll make a lot of the changes you recommended.

    I've been messing with it a lot, but it's not fully balanced yet. Primarily, I raised the cost so it's no longer absurdly cheap to do, and I also nerfed its effects a lot so that it's only usable on issues you've focused on extremely well - but even then it won't have a major effect. I might remove the universal ability from them altogether.

    200M each from party funds, but I also raised the cost of ads a ton to compensate.

    2020 Scenario for download here

    Just downloaded and spectated for the first time using the default matchups from my scenario. Kokesh and the Greens are far too strong with 3 command and strategic. The Republicans and Democrats also need more funds, they both went bankrupt a few weeks in.

    List index out of bounds

    I get this when I run my scenario multiple times without restarting the game. I think there's some sort of election night memory leak because the window from election night also hangs in the background while I continue using the game after.

    The thing that usually caused that from my testing was a massive negative momentum hit to the other parties and positive momentum for the Greens. Third party AI will target swing states because the percentages are technically closer to them - 50-49-1 in Ohio for example is 48 points down while 65-34-1 in Vermont is 64 down and will be ignored despite the fact the Greens are much closer to Vermont with their positions than Ohio.

    Is there any sort of template scenario?

    I remember wondering the same a couple months ago while making a fictional scenario and having to delete everything in the scenario I copied. I could probably make one at some point after I release the first version of my 2020 scenario.

    Question about Polls

    Click the “Polls” tab on the main campaign editor screen and see if polls are set to on. If not, go to the Regions tab on the main screen, change the dropdown at the top to a state instead of the entire US. Then go to the parties tab. Select the party you want to edit primary data for (in your case democratic) and towards the bottom, the candidate you want to change percentages for (Feingold). Keep in mind polling error is on by default and a certain number of support is given to undecideds so the numbers in-game will look different from the ones you input.

    Gaffe-prone AND Gaffe-vulnerability

    I was thinking about this while working on my 2020 scenario but I figured it was too specific to have as an attribute. It could definitely work and will help a lot for scenario makers. Definitely a lot better than having it only tied to experience & issue familiarity because even people with a lot of those make gaffes. I don’t need to see more pictures of Joe Biden caressing Stephanie Carter, but his... unusual tendencies never really affected him.

    Democratic Primary Poll (November 2018)

    His opposition to Trump's worst policies were limited only to statements at best, and complete silence at worst. He never did anything to stop terrible proposals like the AHCA - McCain sank that by actually doing something. Flake only makes meaningless gestures that appear to be taking a stand but do little more than get him in the news and he'll vote with Trump anyway. It's definitely pretty telling that Flake only votes against Trump's interests when the bill is going to pass/fail regardless of his vote, but when it comes down to his position he'll always just side with his party.

    I doubt Klobuchar will lose her home state.
