  1. I am interested! New verseon with a small bugfix and small changes to balance the endorsers 1.03 - The Netherlands 2017 2 2 2.zip
  2. Fixed a few bugs (to low value on fundraising for example), changed the party names to English and added detailed text to all possible party leaders (didn't have that for secondary candidates and small parties) 1.02 - The Netherlands 2017.zip Edit: apparently I took a bug out but put one in too; got this message when selecting the endorsers button. Got this earlier when I forgot to change the dates of the endorsements but that shouldn't be a problem now (I double checked).
  3. Would it in your opinion be better to use English versions of the party names or the original Dutch ones? I'd like to have a uniform look and am considering using the English names (e.g. "People's Party for Freedom and Democracy" instead of "Volkspartij voor Vrijheid en Democratie")
  4. I would like to work on those, very interesting elections! I do wonder though how to implement the impact of the murder of Pim Fortuyn in a 2002-scenario. Some say the shock made the party larger than before and it hit the establishment parties (the party was fourth in the polls before Fortuyn was killed, Fortuyn said before he was killed "If someone attacks and hurts me they [PvdA, VVD, D66, GroenLinks that called him names before] are responsible" and called it 'demonizing', a term that stuck in the political landscape for a while), some say he would have become the largest party (since Fort
  5. I would very much like that! Thanks for your feedback! About the chosen issues: I opted not to add a turkish relations issue, partly because the issue (as a diplomatic crisis; there were some issues with a deal the Netherlands made via the EU with Turkey on immigration but that was more an immigration issue and not connected to this issue) just started to get attention in the last week before the election (it wasn't an issue at all before that) and partly because almost every party had about the same opinion on the matter (left to right supported the actions of the government, apa
  6. I've added some options in the scenario for version 1.01: Stef Blok as a surrogate for VVD. Jeroen Dijsselbloem and Frans Timmermans as surrogates for PvdA. Mona Keizer as surrogate and optional candidate for CDA (second in the leadership contest that took place before these elections). Pia Dijkstra as a surrogate for D66. Part of the reason was to make it a bit more realistic; the larger parties didn't have that much of an advantage in the previous version. The previous mentioned organisations and persons have also been added as endorsers. 1.01 - The Netherlands 2017 2.zip
  7. I agree! Now you can only see the number of votes, not the number of seats. The government creation mechanic from the British elections is also absent in these kind of scenario's because of it. It seems so easy to implement, easier than FFP you would think.
  8. Thanks! A small explanation of some of the choices I made and additions I'd like to make: I have added 25 of 28 participating parties. The ones I didn't add are StemNL (a party that promised to let it's members vote for every proposal; not easily implemented here), along with two parties that only contested in very few electoral districts. I'm considering removing the "Niet-stemmers"-party (the non-voters party) that promised to leave it's seats empty if elected for the same reason. I have made it so that all new parties have to gain ballot access (and so didn't start with ballot acc
  9. 1.03 - The Netherlands 2017 2 2 2.zip I'm in the finishing stages of creating a scenario based on the Dutch general elections of 2017. I have added all 28 parties, with the parties that actually took seats on default and the smaller parties that got less than 0,7 percent of the vote manually selectable. My English isn't that great, so I would really like it if someone could test and proofread it. I put it trough some test runs to get most (all?) of the technical aspects and content right. If you have some issues with e.g. the skill points I awarded to the candidates or other things
  10. Is there any campaign/candidate editor (like the one in P4e 2008) on the way? I hope so!
