    Political Hack
  1. I've been fiddling with attempting to create a USA/Canada United senario in which Canada joins the united states, thus adding at least 10 provinces, now states to the map. Ideally Id like to make a few new provinces, IE Southern Ontario, the GTA an Northorn Ontario out of Ontario, and merge PEI, NB, NS into Acadia and make each of the provenices into states as well. The major problem I have run into is first and foremost the map. When vastness of Canada is added it is EXTREMLY difficult to send your candidate to NH or RI. If anyone with more skills who thinks this could be a good idea woul
  2. Id like a copy too please MichaelRawson@hotmail.com As for the GOP Primary - they couldnt give Walkin much coverage without bring back John Goodman, and with the show dishing out huge pay increases for most of the cast (the show was supposed to scraped after season 6, so to get most of the actors to comit themselves to another season of a dying show was costly - plus with big name actors like Alan Alda I dont think they could have afforded Goodman - but I did read way back during the 6th season that they approached Goodman... it all comes down to money.
  3. Great point, while typing these ideas I was simply writing whatever came into my head without much thought. I never concidered the great and horrible impact this could have on the game.
  4. Please remember, frontrunners rarely win primaries. All this speculation is interesting, but it really dosnt matter who the frontrunner is... the winner generally emerges once the dust of super tuesday dies down.
  5. Please send all of them to michaelrawson@hotmail.com Thanks, Happy New Year, RAWSON4PRESIDENT I read on the second page of this thread that there is a New Hampshire Governor senario... could you please verify that it exists or that its being worked on or that I am mistaken? If there is such a senario Id really like a copy of it - it is my home state and all.

    Id like a copy please, Michaelrawson@hotmail.com Please let me know where it should be sent. RAWSON4PRESIDENT
  7. I imagine this is already known to the game designer, but New Hampshire swings to both parties... infact it generally chooses the winning candidates.
  8. Just a few thoughts: Id really like to see better coverage of primary elections...zoom in so the state covers the map area, with the candidate pictures on the bottom, similar to coverage of the general. I imagine this would be difficult to do, so perhaps just for key primaries like New Hampshire, California, New Jersey, Illinois etc. Be able to give more than one speech per topic... should be unlimited. Make the pre-election office of the candidate important. For example Governors have a better shot than a Senator to get elected, and the Senator in turn has a better shot than a congressma
  9. I agree it would be very difficult to do, but any time I see primaries being covered it is exactly like the general election. The campaign staff carefully watch the results, the media gives an incredable amount of coverage as the results come in. I grew up in New Hampshire, and every 4 years go back to help some candidate - nothing important, just door to door - and im telling you it is an important election, as are many primaries. It would be far more realistic if the game did cover certain primaries like the general - ie New Hampshire, California, South Carolina, New York, Texas, Florida,
  10. In a situation with a lot of candidates with significant ballots it should be possible to haggle over where state delagates are situated on the convention floor, the issue platform... everything that is truely debated prior to a convention. Also, after the second ballot the last place candidate should have to drop off, then another candidate after the third... etc, having everyone but two candidates drop off after the first ballot is rediculous
  11. One thing I would like to see, esspecially since the game is from the point of view of the campaign manager is debate negotiations. This allows you to stratagize about the skill of your candidate and there appointment. It be really nice to be able to choose the topics of the debates (ie one on foreign policy, another on education, or just one general debate, or no debates).
  12. Come on people - its a camera flashing
  13. Please send me a copy - and if possible instructions on how to install it. Thanks, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! RAWSON michaelrawson@hotmail.com
  14. Instead of making a seperate senario for a west wing election, why not just make some of the candidates or potential candidates to the 04, 08 senarios already of the game. Personaly Id like to see Bartlett, Leo, Santos, Josh and Hoynes for the democrats, Vinick, Walken, and most of all, my favorite character on the show, Speaker Jeff Haffley. To be truely honest id much rather have the candidates than a senario. Perhaps this is an avenue worth exploring? RAWSON
  15. No one has given an answer regarding problems with adding pictures.
