Historical Scenario Commission Election Updates!

Other than the updated New Jersey flag, how far do you currently need flags at this point - from 1848 to when?

I've updated through 1872, minus the flags. I'll work on 1876 and 1880 tomorrow, and will have those done, except for the flags. Friday, I will have 1884 and maybe 1888 done, except for the flags. After Friday, I'm hoping to do one election per day. On August 15th, I probably won't have time to do any updates for a few months.

Alright. I'll try to have up to 1872 to you before the end of the day.

That would be great, if possible.

Should I just skip altogether the flags for the Confederate States (except Tennessee and Louisiana) for 1864 and skip Texas, Mississippi, and Virginia for 1868, like was the historical case?

Yeah, you can skip the Confederate States. I forget if the regions show up. If they do, you can do a Confederate political flag, and I can place it on all those states. No worries, however.

I've now made events for elections through 1908.

I just sent the flags. I hope your email server doesn't have an overly onerous incoming attachment limit.

Thanks! I don't think it does.

I got 7-zip,and it doesn't seem to be altering them into anything that I can look at. Is there a way to convert 7zip files to a regular zip file?

Nevermind. I think I figured it out.

I've now uploaded 1848-1860 updates. I'll probably upload up to 1872 today. I'm starting to get a little burned out. So I might take a much earlier break on this than I expected.

@vcczar in the later elections you have an issue where the ads are dirt cheap.

I never set the price of the ads, so I'm wondering if this is an issue with the money coefficient. I'm keeping that number low.

I first saw it in 1948 so you may want to look into that

I think it's an issue in 1924, too. Thanks for this info
