I reactivated my subscription to a couple 270soft games, and I'm really enjoying the improvements since I last played these games, but yeah, what happened to the spacebar function? why was it replaced with the "n" key? It might sound like a small thing, but I'm so used to navigating the game and moving forward through turns by pressing the spacebar.
Many moons ago there was a game called "Election Day" that was made by a professor named John Gastil. It was like that, where, you could save a candidate, and move up from School Board to President. Neat game, too bad it's been mothballed. It's super hard to find, but it might be up your alley, if you can get your hands on it.
