  1. So I was editing the Acadian scenario that was uploaded a while back, adding more ridings to Maine to fit its population, making sure the issues in the scenario file and fundraising/regional files lined up, etc, but I'm getting an "Invalid floating point operation" message when I try to start a game. I'm using PM4E 2008 version, and I've attached the scenario if anyone could take a look at it, I'm not sure what's werong with it and I put a decent amount of time and energy into my tinkering.

  2. Well, I mean held up well compared to the real life result of only having 4. In my couple of playthroughs as the NDP they usually seem to end up with around 25 seats. The one suggestion I might have would to have the "Harper and Ignatieff shread Layton's budget proposals" event sap a little less of the NDP momentum.

  3. With the scenario seemingly based in part on Montreal/Paris, for the national and regional flags I tried to draw inspiration from visual identity of various arrondissements, boroughs, and neighbourhoods from each place. For example, the regional flag of region 8 is a loose banner of arms for Mount Royal in Montreal.

  4. Sure.





    I'm on a graphic design kick, so I'll design some flags too. Also a minor suggestion, maybe trim down the time the Civic Party has been in power (a 54 year hold on power would be amongst the longest in the democratic world) to something more realistic while still showing long term electoral dominance, say in the 20-30 yearish range.

  5. For the Northern Ireland starting numbers, you could use the results of the Euro election as a baseline:

    SF: 26%

    DUP: 18%

    UCU: 17%

    SDLP: 16%

    TUV: 14%

    Alliance: 6%

    Green: 3%

    Maybe nudge the numbers around a bit to account for independents who have solid chances of winning in 2 seats, Lady Harmon in North Down and Rodney Connor in Fermanagh and South Tyrone, maybe cut them a chunk of the DUP's % since they aren't running in either seat.

  6. For Capital Ward, might as well include the incumbant councillor, Clive Doucet, who is a known NDP supporter as the NDP candidate. Alex Munter as the Liberal candidate in Kanata South isn't the most accurate, as he is more of an NDP guy (ran for them in the 1990 provincial election).

    Other than that, as an Ottawa resident (at least part-time, I'm a Carleton student), looks really interesting. I would also maybe include a corruption issue, as Larry O'Brien is in some hot water right now lol.

  7. I downloaded this recently, and found while it was good on its own, it could use some tweaks.

    -Maine needs more seats to bring it in line with it's population, I used the constit editor to make new seats and candidates for about 10 seats, however, I did have some weird difficulties for the new Maine seats, as I was having AS win seats with only 7% of the vote. If someone is better at constit editing, they should look into that.

    -Perhaps the creation of a Bloc Gaspe party? I tried but my scenario editing wasn't quite good enough.

    -The Verts should be particularly strong in Maine, as the real life Maine Independent Greens are, with the possible exception of the California Greens, the strongest state Green party.

    I also designed some logos for the parties:
