  1. I did my own, goofy European Parliament election back in like 2007 or so. I'll see if I still have it. I also had a computer change as well, but I'm thinking I could get back into 80soft stuff after binging on civ 5, democracy 3, and tropico.
  2. I'm going to redo the 2004 and 2006 elections first, like I did with 2008 and 2011 (both of which turned out really well). Issues in 2004: Abortion Business Tax Corruption Debt Reduction Defense Environment Families Gun Registry Immigration Marijuana National Security Personal Tax Provincial Powers Public Health Care Quebec Same-Sex Marriage Trade US Relations Let me know what you think.
  3. Who are the other leaders? I recognize Trudeau, Mulcair, Harper, May, and Duceppe- but not anyone else.
  4. Which endorsers should I include this time around? Working on issue positions: EDIT: For some reason I cannot copy and paste issue positions from the files...weird.
  5. It is going to be a very low profile issue. I suppose Gender Equality could replace the Government issue ((which would be Stick with Harper (Tory) vs Change (Grit) vs a Centre-Left Coalition (NDP) or Left-wing Coalition government (Green, BQ)). What should be the highest profile issues (3 and 4), middle profile (2), and lowest profile (1)? Please note this would include Leadership, Integrity, Experience, and Issue Familiarity.

I'm not sure if Same-Sex Marriage was a bigger issue than Rural Affairs (which includes Hunting Bans), Pensions, or the Middle East (which would include Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Israel-Palestine, and ISIS). Referendum on staying in the EU- in there as European Union Scottish Independence - in there as Devolution Syrian refugee crisis- in Middl
  7. Hey all, So I wanted to express inerest in making a Canada 2015 election scenario for the 2008 engine. What are the issues for the official 2015 scenario? I'd suggest these based on what I've read- but please feel free to correct me on anything. Leadership 2 Integrity 2 Experience 2 Issue Familiarity 1 Aboriginal Affairs 3 Business Taxes 1 Childcare 2 Crime 1 Defense 2 Democratic Reform 3 Economy 4 Energy 3 Environment 3 Gender Equality 2 Healthcare 2 Marijuana 3 Multiculturalism 2 Pensions 1 Personal Taxes 3 Quebec 1 Trade 2 Terrorism 3 And old/new/updated endorsemen
  8. Out of curiosity, what are the issues and positions for the official 2015 scenario?
  9. I'm thinking that I may get back to it. Parties wil be (not necesarily in this order), with Leaders in Parenthesis: Labour (Ed Miliband, Alternates: David Miliband, Ed Balls, Andy Burnham, Diane Abbot, Jeremy Corbyn) Conservative (David Cameron, Alternates: Boris Johnson, George Osborne, Nicky Morgan, Theresa May, Michael Gove) Lib-Dem (Nick Clegg, Alternates: Tim Farron, Simon Hughes, Vince Cable) Scottish National (Nicola Sturgeon, Alternate: Alec Salmond) Green (Natalie Bennett, Alternate: Caroline Lucas) UKIP (Nigel Farage) National Health Action (plus CISTA) (Richard Taylor) Ulst
  10. So to celebrate my big return to this forum, I will make a UK 2015 election scenario for the 201 engine. For those of you that have already made any, feel free to offer suggestions. If you have any pictures from the official scenario- please send them my way. Just for notes, I'm going to replace Veritas with the English Democrats and add the Christian and Christian People's Party in with them. Respect will include the TUSC as well. I'll get rid of the BNP and replace them with National Health Action- which will also include CISTA. As for the issues in the scenario- here's what I have so
  11. Send it to me at kurtgarwood@gmail.com and I'll take a look tonight.
  12. The NSA scandal was talked about but had no effect on the way people voted; Digital Integrity the same as it was in 2009. I will include the AfD, as they almost made it into the Bundestag. Not sure about the Pirates given their collapse in the polls. I do need 4 more issues though.

  14. Have any of you guys heard from the scenario author? I haven't. I would be up for doing my own scenario, actually.
  15. I'll post it sometime when it's perfected/I'm reasonably satisfied with it.
  16. How goes the scenario? I can offer my help if you need it.
  17. Hey all, So I resurrected Ken Kerns' old Cyberia Forever scenarios, including a few that I worked with him on that have not been released to the public (despite being finished in 2007-2008) such as the 2005, 2009, and 2013 elections. Basically Ken conceived of the country as a "Caribbean Canada", with a white anglophone majority and a troublesome indigenous/non-white minority (instead of the francophone minority). It was based on an online micronation/political simulation he was a part of, but has long-since gone defunct. I'm finished with the 1997, 2001, and 2005 scenarios; and currently
  18. Yes I look forward to this one as well.

  20. Scenario Introdcution With a flat-lining economy, rising unemployment, cultural polarization (between immigrants and natives, and francophones and anglophones) and increased diplomatic tensions with the European Union regarding controversial policies, the governing NCC (National Conservative Coalition) has decided to call an early election to prove that their strategy has the backing of the Polarian people. With the opposition Progressive Democrats in turmoil and the rapid rise of the left wing split between numerous factions, the Prime Minister is confident that his party can regain both the
  21. I'm going to work on that tonight, when I have some free time (and I'll do a little now as well). The ridings, primary secondary conversions, and electorate trends are what needs to be fixed, along with the party financing. Out of curiosity, where did you get the results by region?
  22. I know I have Aso and Hatoyama's pictures of party leaders in that scenario, I think I have the other minor leaders in there as well- at least the New Komeito and the JCP leaders.
  23. I might be interested. Did you enjoy my new Kozakura scenario?
  24. So I've decided to work off this scenario combining this scenario with my own victoria and gaffney's tokundi. More to come later.
