  1. Found myself becoming more interest in Canadian politics and was browsing on the campaigns site and noticed how many scenarios exist for the old engine and was wondering whether there is an appetite to see them re-made for the PM Infinity engine. It seems a shame for them not to be revived. Here is a list of those which don't seem to have been re-made. Canada 1957 (Patine) Quebec 1944 Canada 1974 (Jack Cox) Manitoba 2003 (Jack Cox) Canada 1988 (Nicholas Lawson) New Brunswick 2003 (Jack Cox) Nova Scotia 2003 (Brian Appel) Ontario 1999 (Jack C
  2. During the Primaries, each state has a 'News Profile', so for example New Hampshire and Iowa provide very powerful news stories for the winning candidate which seems to cause the candidates to focus on those states even if other states hold contests earlier. Is there anyway this mechanic could be used in general elections to encourage candidates to focus on vote/delegate heavy states where they may be further behind such as California/New York rather than the states they are most likely to flip?
  3. Could the strategy issue be solved by linking the 'news profile' attribute for states in the primaries to encourage certain states/regions to be targeted over others. As this can be adjusted by party primary already this could help determine party strategies?
  4. Some other European scenarios would be a really interesting addition given the large numbers of parties, electoral systems and electoral thresholds in those countries.
  5. I am currently working on 2014 Alabama State Senate and 2014 State House scenarios which took place during the trial of House Speaker Mike Hubbard and before Gov. Bentley resigned due to scandal. Although the GOP will have a big starting advantage, I thought these would be some interesting races to simulate as the number of events surrounding the Hubbard scandal give the Democrats a good opportunity to capitalize. For map purposes I have grouped the districts under their corresponding US House district and have included the following issues using the 2014 House additional parties sce
  6. That's interesting to know. Thanks
  7. Is it just me or are there not many federal/provincial election night recordings on Youtube that go back more than a couple of elections? It would be interesting to know if there are particular websites that keep them.
  8. I am sure some people have already come across this but I thought if they haven't it could be useful for campaign creation https://www.poltext.org/en/part-1-electronic-political-texts/electronic-manifestos-canadian-provinces
  9. I would imagine that mixed member/parallel electoral systems would be easiest to implement as the constituency elements are already in place. I would be happy to create some Scottish Parliament and Welsh and London Assembly scenarios which use the AMS (Additional Member System) for use with a new electoral system. Thanks
  10. Looks good, From where/ How did you make your candidate picture its looks CGI?

    Alberta - 1935

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread here but if you still have plans for the scenario, I found something which looks to give the date of the Writ Drop in 1935. Hope this helps
  12. I've received a similar message to this also, it was just before a Vice President's debate on a 1992 scenario if that helps.

    Alberta - 2015

    I thought as the original scenario already has its own regions, I have decided for now to release a version using those. I might do another version using the 2019 regions if this version doesn't play well. http://campaigns.270soft.com/2019/10/26/alberta-2015-2/
  15. Hi All, Had anyone ever managed to persuade other parties or candidates to give you PIPs without having to promise the earth? I would imagine it shouldn't be so tricky to persuade parties with no seats that you are on decent relations with in post-election negotiations to give some PIPs as they don't need them. Thanks

    Alberta - 2015

    I'm planning on remaking the Alberta - 2015 scenario from the Prime Minister Forever – Canada 2011 engine in to the PMI engine but I can't quite decide whether to use the '2019 PMI scenario regions' or the regions used in the original scenario. I'm tempted to go with the 2019 regions to keep a connection to the official 2019 Alberta scenario but it may be that the regions created on the 2011 engine are more appropriate for the 2015 election as I have very limited knowledge on Canadian provincial politics. Any other improvements (issues, parties, candidates etc.) for the remake can be added to

    Hi @Ido how did you work out what percentages you gave to each party in the 'demographics', as some of these blocs have different seats favouring multiple parties. It looks to be an interesting work around and i'd like to know how you calculated them. Thanks

    That does sound concise.

    UK 2019

    Maybe Antisemitism/Anti-Zionism and Israel/Palestine issues would cover more areas in the equation. It's certainly an interesting area for discussion.

    The Brexit Party is a must I would say, even if they don't win seats, they would easily affect the outcome of many seats if they do run and not make any agreements with the Conservatives. Change UK would be useful, if not just to provide a spoiler effect in certain seats or advertising. Apart from Brexit, there are lots of issues which may play a part in any upcoming election (some linked with Brexit also). Antisemitism (Jeremy Corbyn and Labour) Islamophobia (Boris Johnson and the Burka row) Building regulations (the fire at Grenfell Tower in London) Knife Crime (
