  1. Was quite unhappy with my own offering for the 2009 election. So i'm working it over again.
  2. Have done the political units, splitting up Cook County into Chicago and the other Townships. With Aaron Shock now contenting for the GOP, might make an interesting scenario. Other candidates?
  3. Texans are known for their social and fiscal conservatism. Rick Perry has been the incumbent Governor since George W. Bush's election as President in 2001. But demographic changes have seen areas north of the Rio Grande slowly turn blue. The Lone Star State has not elected a Democrat to state-wide office in 20 years. Can they turn the tide in 2014, and find a successor to the Democratic legacy of Lyndon Johnson and Ann Richards? This is a hard scenario if you are running as a Democrat.

    Texas 2014

    Just a development update... This was the old political_units. As the game engine can only handle 150 division, I had combined an awful lot of them together which produced this messy looking map. I also discovered that the old data was based off of 2000 census data - so was missing millions of voters. I've updated the latest version to reflect the population changes, as well as generating many more divisions which incorporate smaller combinations of counties. this should make the map look a lot more dynamic when it is played.

I still have some work to do on the map graphics to smooth out the middle zoom-in box.

    Problems with C4E

    This is driving be round the bend. Totally nuts stir crazy. I've literally spent the last hour trying to access a custom scenario which Windows 7 has hidden away. It also appears as if Campaigns Forever isnt reading the political_units file from another scenario which is accessible. I've edited the file in word (find and replace on <motto> etc to save time rather than each individual entry in the tool) and the edits dont show up in CF. I've even deleted the old political_units and replaced with a new version - they dont show up. I've even deleted political_units altogether, and CF seems to magically access it from somewhere.
  9. So the long and the sort of it is that having almost completed both the Chicago and Texas scenarios - both of which were the trickiest and time consuming to date - my computer suffered the mother of all implosions, and I just went and packed it in. However... i discovered that i had an old zipped copy of the Texas scenario buried in my gmail account. Its got most of the political_unit data still intact, so am reviving it. Candidates?

    Chicago Mayor

    The problem with Chicago is that for it to be a decent game, considering the GOP is tota crap, I'll have to make the primary stage into a long contest like the Presidential primaries, instead of all on one day. I'd be interested in what people think for candidates.
  11. You have forced my hand! I was keeping this one secret... As you can see, the political_units are a nightmare. Map is very crowded, and it is not by best work by far. Working on the candidates and issues at the moment. Should be out soon!
  12. updated with SC Will email to anyone who wants until it goes up on the website. Z
  13. So I'm after a full slate of candidates for all parties Clearly we now have the actual candidates, but i am more interested in making scenarios fun, and not making them simulate the actual election. Accuracy is not an issue. So lets have a good selection of canidates, whether or not they are/are not/did not consider/considered running. Also want issue headlines. C'mon peeps, lets get those creative juices flowing!
