  1. A bit of an update for the future 1948 scenario: I found one that I had worked on a bit a few months ago that I had forgotten about. It definitely needs some work, but what I have should make that one go faster. As for 1920, I'll be starting to input data into Campaigns Forever soon. I'll probably start it by doing enough to have the general election playable so it can be tested and then add the primaries.

  2. Hopefully, this one and my 2007 Australian scenario will be ready within the next few days.

  3. 1970 is a good idea! Does 2001 was ever made or was it too boring to play on? Also, on You Tube, a good instrument to help work on scenarios in the UK general elections are the recordings of electoral nights of the BBC from 1979 to 2010.

  4. A good three way race, I won the election as the Tory with this score at my first try after a spacebar quick look: CON: 14 039 SDP: 13 408 Labour: 11 697 SNP: 4277 Glass: 2055 Boaks: 1643 Carlaw: 1561 Jenkins: 1413 Any polls for this by-election during the campaign?

  6. I'll look at how these changes work. Also, have they fixed the Miliband picture? (since the version I have has Ed instead of David). Also, the Conservatives were perceived as being centre-right rather than centrist plus they needed a weak issue (so I made it the NHS) to reflect RL issues. The Greens also ran pretty far to the left and are L on quite a few issues, while the UKIP is R on quite a number of issues as well. I have changed Veritas' Ireland position to R, and put the TUV leader as an alternate. I will talk with others about changing Respect to Respect-TUSC and Veritas to Alliance for Democracy-TUV.

  7. I like that, though I'm working on a fictional scenario called Kanelcheska based off of Treasurer's great scenario.

  14. Around the Village, who asked me for help but hasn't replied to my last set of questions for a while, is planning both a set of presidential and parliamentary elections for one country, that being South Korea. It would be nice to see if it happens.

  15. Treasurer, I will get started on redoing UK 2005 more regions and mainstream shortly- once I get the motivation to do so. Sorry I'm addicted to neverwinter nights 2 right now.

  16. Spain in the biggest country in Europe not to have its own scenario in P4E or P4ME, as France have a P4E scenario. I think Spain is easier to do as only two parties (PP and PSOE) have a chance to win even with an MMP system, with other parties being more regional in scope. Belgium is a big challenge due to the parties linguistic division. Good luck! The Netherlands is pretty feasible to do as there is not that many ''major'' parties (about 3-4 for about 7-8 parties in total) for a very fragmentary and pillarized political system. Personally, will the Swedish 2006 or 2010 election (however with many many seats to do in the parliament) will be more interesting to do than Finland?

  17. BTW, this is a suggestion fot the regions in the map. A good thing will be to take a look at the provincial BC map for PM4E: -Eastern Oregon -Western Oregon -Portland-Vancouver,WA -Eastern Washington -Western Washington -Seattle-Tacoma -Vancouver/Fraser Valley -Victoria/Vancouver Island -Mainland BC -Northern BC/Peace Valley -Okanagan

  18. Hey all, would anyone be interested in helping me redo the 2005 scenario? I kind of felt that the official scenario made Britain a bit too left-wing (for example, all regions except Northern Ireland and the SW are CL on the smoking ban). I also do plan on getting some work done on the revised Tory fightback scenario. I'll work on all the scenarios tomorrow and see what I can get done.

  26. Are European election closely followed in the UK and did any of you voted? Also, I think that a Swedish 2009 European Election version for C4E would be a nice thing to do due to the emergence of a small grassroots party based on Copyright Reform (Pirate Party) which had 7,1% in the European Election and is now the third party in Sweden by membership.

  29. That was perhaps an issue in 1997, when the Cons' privatisation backfired on them- so as a result, it's not much of an issue anymore. Sadly, the parties are all tweedledee and tweedledum on transport policy. Same goes for the Olympics. It's tweedledee and tweedledum.

  34. Well the intent of the Government issue was to focus it as between the two major parties (Labour and SNP) and marginalise the Cons as too right-wing for Scotland and put the Lib-Dems in the Center due to their flip-flopping on coalitions. The left-wing nutjob parties are all extreme left, which also accounts for their marginalisation.

  35. The problem is that the Scottish Parliament has no powers over Iraq or foreign policy for the most part, and it didn't factor as much of a priority at all among voters in an exit poll.

  39. For the Lab-Lib, I would add Brian Paddick, Nick Harvey and Chris Huhme. I would add Boris Johnson and Liam Fox for the Conservatives and Richard Barnbrook and Simon Darby for the ENP. For the Greens maybe Sian Berry and Derek Wall? Nigel Farage as an Independant?

  49. GOP Progressive made something similar called USGS European Union 2015. This scenario is really good as a starting point for the issues.
