  1. Yes, that would do it, as long as it can work both ways; wouldn't want you to try and type up all those platforms anyway given the chaos that would cause.

  2. Hi Lahbas, Thanks for this feedback. Yes, having positions based on local candidates would add to the realism, but it would also make it immensely more complex. 435 platforms to contend with in the House elections, for example. One way to get around this would be to have issue markers, like a local candidate might be -1 on a specific issue, say ... We'll see. Feedback about Independents noted.

  3. Alright, I believe I have said this before, but you need the candidate's positions to effect the race, not exclusively those of the party. For example, in 2010 in Colorado, Ken Buck is considered to have lost due to attacks on his Pro-Life position, which consisted on a total abortion ban; you can't do that if its only the Party's positions that you are fighting against, given they both try and tend towards the center. It also adversely effects Democratic candidates who are in the South, and Republican candidates in the North, given while the candidates themselves might be better tailored to t

  5. a career mode. What this means to me is I pick a candidate, run for President. Chances are, I don't get the nomination, but then I can work an try and get my party's nominee elected. If he is, then I get a bit of a bump to my own status, be it integrity, organiziation, whatever. Then in 4 or 8 more years depending (or I guess give me the ability to run against an incumbant in the primaries), my candidate is a better candidate from running previously. Hopefully I am better enough to win. Then face re-election. Not sure how implementing the actual Presidency could work without turning thi

  6. I've started a game, and noticed something strange. It causes a 'lag,' or pause between clicking a button or region and the function activation that no other TheorySpark game scenario to date has caused. This has hampered a serious play. I'll try to truck through a full game later this week, though.
