Weimar Republic 1933 - Download here

Recommended Posts

I finally have this in a form I'm comfortable posting:

http://www.4shared.com/file/132429050/3ba00820/Weimar_Republic_-_1933.html

Results screenshot of one of the times I managed to beat the Nazis:

I'll reiterate again that this is not meant to give people an opportunity to play as the Nazis, but unfortunately it's not possible to make them computer-only. Also, just FYI, the reason Hitler has a 2 for integrity and not a 1 is that I approach those ratings as reflecting public perception rather than reality, and I'm assuming that people were not yet aware of the depths of his depravity in 1933.

I've also submitted it to TheorySpark, but I'm open to making further changes if anyone has suggestions.

Two things I noticed upon opening this scenario, though these are probably just pedantic. First, you're using Euros 70 or so years before they existed. Maybe put 'DM' in the currency symbol slot like Treasurer did in Germany 1990? It seems to work. Second, I believe the Weimar Republic still used the black-white-red striped flag of WW1; the black-red-gold one I'm quite sure was a creation of the post-WW2 period. These two issues are minor notes, but will enhance the game's realism. I will now actually play the game.

From what i've played so far, (SPD), it plays very well and i will enjoy trying to get to take over the Nazis which seems quite a hike. Interesting how the radio ad money jumps up in price, and is very expensive, probably justification for it being new technology i think. The endorsers are small but varied which is good. I don't think this will prompt people to play as the Nazis, as their the least interesting party to play for in this type of scenario.

Well, the other thing with the ads is that there was radio censorship going on during the election. So the way I handled it was to make them extremely expensive (to the point that nobody could run them for long if they actually have to pay for them), and then I only gave any free credits to the Nazis and the DNVP.

A very fun challenging and overally enjoyable scenario!

It took me several tries to finally eek out a 1 seat majority as the SDP when I went into coalition with the Centre Party.

BUt it was fun!

Very nice post with a ton of informative information. I really appreciate the fact that you approach these topics from a stand point of knowledge and information

instead of the typical “I think” mentality that you see so much on the internet these days.

I am thinking of doing an election along these lines for Alexandria. It'll be set in 1938 and use PMF Canada as Alexandria didn't switch to MMP until 1946.

The parties will probably be:

Radical 33%

Fascist-Nazi Party (not sure what to call it-any suggestions?) 40%

Imperial-Unionist 15%

Socialist Revolutionary 12%

I'd like to keep the party count at 4, unless there is a compelling reason for a 5th party.

issues will be:

Armed Forces

Business Regulation

Communism

Church and State

Democracy

Economic Recovery

Fascism

International Relations

Military Action

Political Violence

Private Property

Race Relations

Social Security

Taxation

Territorial Expansion

Trade

Unemployment

Workers' Rights

What about something like National Revivalist? I'm pretty sure the Latin American countries have had rightist "Revival" parties before. Barring that, something like Front Alexandrien, maybe? That would obviously cater more to the French Alexandrians, but it could be adapted.

For the 1938 Alexandrian scenario, you could maybe have:

Front Patriotique Alexandrien=40%

Christian Democratic Party=20%

Alliance Démocratique Libérale (Parti Radical + Parti Libéral)=20%

Popular Front=15%

Nationale Volksfront=5%

Alexandria has a Spanish-speaking plurality so there wouldn't be as many French parties but I do appreciate the suggestion. Here is what my friends and I have decided on:

Radical Party (incumbent centrist-centre-left party, elected in 1933) 33% 55 seats

Fatherland Front (fascist-nazi-francoist party with carlist roots) 40% 85 seats

Imperial Unionist Party (former ruling Conservatives till 1933) 15% 30 seats

Popular Alliance-Socialist Revolutionary (Communists and Socialist opposition) 12% 10 seats

Canonically, the Fatherland Front was narrowly defeated by a last-minute surge to the left-wing parties.

PARTY LEADERS:

Léon Reynaud (Radical)

Moisé Guerrero (Radical)

Carlos Wagner (Fatherland Front)

Philippe Fernández (Imperial-Unionist)

Manuel Caballero (Popular Alliance-Socialist Revolutionary)

Is Alexandria having a German minority or is that only in Cyberland?

Also, a neat thing to do will be to make a Micronational World Map (or even a Micronational World Assembly or presidential election) with all those countries:

Ayati

Katyusha

Luthoria

Shou Lung

North Guanjin,

Taitaku

Babhka

Arminy

the Sennar Nation

New Britannia

Kanchelska

Kozakura

Hutali

Mardogne

South Guanjin

Nyarai

Tokundi

Rocentia

Cyberia

Cyberland

Gimli

Astaria

Zion

Nuuk

Alexandria

Kozakura

Down Under

Carrassia

Cartazed

Klavencraft-Szerney

Ocia

Caledonia

Terre-Neuve

Nouvelle-France

Santos

Samania

A micronational world assembly should also include Katyusha, Luthoria, Shou Lung, North Guanjin, the Taitaku Republic, Babhka, Arminy, the Sennar Nation, and that Central Asian micronation (Something-istan), even though none of them are particularly democratic, as such nations tend also to be involved in World organizations.

And you forgot Ayati.

Sounds like a great idea! If the creation for this ever gets rolling, i can do the map, as i can shrink down all the nations pnto the one map, with the exact borders intact.
