Hi GOP, have you seen the thread I did? I was going to do a scenario like this a year or two ago, but never got post planning stage, you might find some ideas

Good luck!

My thoughts.

1) Ditch the 'The' at the beginning of names.

2) Make the elections based on Euro results and use parties based on the European Parliament blocs:

* People's (centre-right Europhile, EPP)

* Socialists (centre-left, PES/NGL)

* Liberals (liberal, ALDE/EFA)

* Greens (green, EG)

* Democrats (centre-right Eurosceptic, ED/UEN/ID)

* United Left (left, UEL)

* Freedom (right, former ITS)

3) Stop making the Turkish issue so explicitly pro-Muslim, especially for the left.

4) Maybe base the seats on actual European Parliament amounts (736) per country, and reduce the amount of seats to match that.

Thanks for the suggestion- but feel free to do that yourself.

It took me enough work to make that scenario- and it's set in the future as well as with the events of a simulation in mind. I refuse to do a scenario with more than 5 parties- as I'll just kill myself with the ridings. Plus, I worked hard enough to get the limited data I got- plus I couldn't get good enough information on regionalism and on elections in some of the other countries.

So how's life Joe Edwards?

BTW, after testing the scenario out- I changed some minor details like fundraising - and party goals (the Liberals' goal was just too high).
