  1. As I wrote in another thread, I transferred the Canada-2004 scenario created by Saskguy into the German engine and used the PR with it. As far as where the secondary votes would go, I kind of guessed. But I've encountered some problems. 1) I'm not sure how the German system works, entirely, but are the seats supposed to increase during the election? Because it seems like, 3 weeks in, every province suddenly got four or five more seats. I thought, for the additional seats, a set list was created, and how can a list be created if the amount of additional seats isn't static? 2) For Independant candidates, they suddenly lost a ton of votes. Chuck Cadman went down to 1%, actually. Why is that? 3) At the end of the election, it seems like every party won some seats. Heck, the Communist Party won 7 PR seats with 0% of the popular vote! Is there a way to set a thereshold, like, of 5% of the popular vote required to win any seats?
  2. Okay, but how is it determined which candidate sits in those seats? Does each party create a list, or, after an election, does the parties just appoint candidates to sit in the seats they've won in a way they determine later?
  3. Can somebody please explain to me how the German system works? Like, you get your standard 308 seats, like for Canada, and how are the rest of the seats calculated? And how is it determined who sits in the extra seats? I played my Canadian scenario in it, and it seems like, as the game goes on, the number of seats increases...
  4. I just finished transferring Canada-2004 into the game. I had to guess about how the secondary votes would go, but I think it's really good. Although...for some reason, Chuck Cadman goes down to 1% of the vote in Surrey North. But otherwise, I think I did a good job.
  5. I dunno...I could have done with a fourth term of Jean Chretien.
  6. If you could perhaps send me that map... And those photos, which are also well done. brian.appel@gmail.com
  7. I put the "X" on all the incumbents in my 2004 scenario.
  8. I like the Svend quote, by the way.
  9. Hmmm...I dunno. I never really noticed.
  10. It's a neat game, I guess, but it seems like the kind of thing that would get boring after a while.
  11. Hmm...Actually it's a white background(a wall in my apartment). I don't currently have any polka-dot backdrops I can use for my photos.
  12. Is that the revised version?
  13. Cool. Try it in the revised version and see how well you do.
  14. Jeez! How'd you manage that, Dave?
