BC Election 2017

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I've been working on a BC 2017 campaign for the last few days, and I feel like I'm almost done with the project. Its my first real scenario so its still a little rough around the edges. Balance-wise the BC Liberals win around 43.5 seats (44 is a majority), the NDP 41.5, and the Greens 1.5 (I managed to win a seat once as the Conservatives, but the AI has not in over 400 simed games). This feels pretty accurate, and its possible for both parties to win. Minorities are common but not frequent.

I've used the map from Premier Forever 2005 with a few changes (added the Kootenays and the part of Vancouver Island that's attached to the mainland), but I'm probably going to want to fiddle with it more later. I have added 5 parties and multiple candidates for each:

  • BC Liberal: Clark, Wilkinson, de Jong, Fassbender, Sultan
  • BC NDP: Horgan, Eby, Farnworth, Chandra Herbert, Mark
  • BC Green: Weaver, Furstenau
  • BC Con: Anderson
  • Van Isle Party: Richardson (off by default)

Each party has surrogates associated with them: Libs and NDP have 2, while the Greens, Cons, and VIP have 1. I have been working on issues, which are not done yet. Most have filler text. So far I have:

BC Ferries, Corruption, Education, Electoral Financial Reform, Electoral Reform, Environmental, Housing, Jobs and Economy, LNG, Massey Tunnel Replacement, Pipelines, Site C, Unions, Vancouver Bridge Tolls. 

I still need to work on events and endorsers, flushing out flavour text for issues, and ensuring that candidates are correct. I'm pretty new to these types of games, and the stats for the leaders are all over the place, so they'll need to be re-balanced. I hope that everything will be done within a few days (latest should be a week), pinky-swear. I'm considering making a BC 1972 scenario after, but we'll see how I feel once this one is all done.

Hey everyone,

I've finished the scenario. Overall I feel alright about it, it definitely needs some fine tuning and I'm open to any suggestions on how to make it better. Its my first one so it probably needs some work. I have been working on a potential 1972 scenario but I'm not sure if I'll finish it, as researching the issues has been a pain.
