The Historical Scenario Commission has updated the 1808 election! Updated 1788-1808 scenarios are now available for download *Note: These early elections do not have a popular vote in some states; thus, the true battle are in the states with the popular vote. Only the candidates (and in later cases, the party) that has any shot at winning the state legislatures will be on the ballot in the states without a popular vote. This is because the engine seems to randomly assign the winner of these states (they have a voting population set to 1). This is done to allow for realistic election results. Without doing so, the Simulation Party, John Jay or Gouvernor Morris could win Georgia over Thomas Jefferson, despite Jefferson having 80% support. I just want to make it clear that this is not a glitch, this is solely reflecting states without a popular vote, and that have a permanent bias for or against certain candidates or parties.
I'll post the updates/improvements to the 1808 scenario here. The Historical Scenario Commission consists of @jvikings1 @CalebsParadox @Patine @Reagan04 @TheMiddlePolitical @SeanFKennedy @Conservative Elector 2 @Take Me to La Riva @vcczar @NYrepublican @MrPrez @msc123123, all of whom will help in improving historical presidential election at their leisure. We will go in chronological order. [Anyone wishing to join the HSC can do so by posting here, and can help by playing through the scenarios to find areas for improvement, providing advice for improvements, and for suggesting events, finding typos or other errors. Suggestions for historical newspapers (for interviews), events, surrogates, fixing inflationary index, etc. can also be helpful. ] Updates will be edited in the list below as they are made. ~~~~Updates to the scenario so far have been~~~~ Events added by VCCzar A simulation party has been added to watch the election by VCCzar Issue descriptions mentioning Whigs and Democrats are changed to Federalists and Republicans by VCCzar Region issues set by VCCzar Money coefficient set to 3 by Patine Issue images set by NYRepublican Adjusted endorser support by VCCzar Candidate relations set by VCCzar Adjusted ballot access, so that states without Popular vote only support the candidates in which they'd realistically support by VCCzar Adjusted general election bonuses for Federalist candidates by VCCzar "primary delegates" set to take into account the population of the states of 1808 by VCCzar Flags added by Patine Issue descriptions set, including fixing typos in "Slavery," "Rights of the States," "Tariff," "Taxes" by CalebsParadox Charles Cotesworth Pinckney added as an endorser by CalebsParadox Tammany Hall's support for DeWitt Clinton is increased by CalebsParadox Harrison changed from Gen. to Gov by CalebsParadox Candidate abilities slightly altered by CalebsParadox John Jay added as endorser by CalebsParadox Playthrough by VCCzar and CalebsParadox
