  1. Yeah, endorsements are way, way too OP in Australian scenarios, they normally do pretty much nothing over here due to the fact that pretty much everyone knows which paper will endorse who (not that hard to do when Murdoch controls a fair chunk of your media tbh)
  2. Are you able to make it so that you can add separate preference flows from seat to seat, not just nationally?
  3. Also to remember for 1901: SA elected all of its members on an at large ticket. Voters chose 7 candidates, and the top 7 vote-getters were elected. TAS used STV to elect its 5 members. Here's a good page talking about this, and the results: http://pappubahry.com/pseph/aus_stats/sa_tas_1901/
  4. From what I can tell, 20% exhaust in that case. It'd be nice to see some way of forcing preference flows, like how it is here in Australia.
  5. That really wasn't all that one sided compared to many other state elections. Some good examples of one sided state/territorial elections are: Qld 2012 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Queensland_state_election QLD 2001 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_Queensland_state_election NT 2016 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Northern_Territory_general_election NSW 2011 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_New_South_Wales_state_election
  6. Another thing: why are you not allowed to view the first preference results after the election is done?
  7. Now that we have preferential voting added, I'm probably going to restart this project.
  8. here are a couple of things that need fixing/could be improved -A Lab-L/NP 2PP figure nationally and per seat would be nice (I like a lot of detail in results) -You cannot have undecideds when talking about 2PP/2CP. That needs to be fixed so that only the decided vote is factored into the 2PP/2CP.
  9. You should have mine too. I'll have Klobuchar/Beto
  10. Bustos should, but Pelosi will, unfortunately.
  11. I have like 20 GB of memory in my PC, it shouldn't happen haha :P
  12. I'm confused, I've never had this error before.
  13. The spreadsheet is a bit glitchy for me, it keeps adding zeros to some numbers and ignoring some decimals. Say I want to type in 53.7%, it'll put in 5370.0% instead
  14. You are right. I don't expect them to poll well at all in any seats in inner Melbourne.
  15. They didn't have any candidates in Inner Melbourne in 2014, and I don't expect that to change this year.
  16. We won't know the full party list until early November, when nominations close, but I will be including all major parties and probably a few of the bigger minors, as well as the major independent candidates as separate.
  17. Being a Victorian myself, and the feeling that there is a lack of Australian scenarios (Thanks lack of Preferential voting...Please hurry up with that), I thought that I'd make up a scenario for the upcoming State election, being held on November 24th. So far, all I've got done is the map and the usability of the regions on the map. I am currently working on the population and voter data of the districts themselves, and the images for each of the parties, their leaders, and independent candidates. This will be a work in progress over the entirety of the year, as we are so far out, we know very little of who is running, except in my own district, which currently already has 3 candidates (incumbent Independent, the Liberal party, and the National Party).
  18. So I finally learned how to make maps that actually work for the 270 soft games, so I decided to make up maps for Australia. This'll be added on to as they're made. Victoria.bmp
  19. I'll certainly give it a crack. EDIT: I've made a much cleaner, and fairer Maryland map. There are 2 republican, and 6 democrats. I will try and make an even fairer map, as a completely fair map would give Republicans 3 seats, and I will post it when it is made. 1: 41.4-57 McCain, R+11.8 2: 81.7-17.2 Obama, D+31.3 3: 42.7-55.7 McCain, R+10.4 4: 58.3-40.1 Obama, D+10.9 5: 64.9-34.2 Obama, D+13.9 6: 56.3-42.2 Obama, D+8.3 7: 70.8-28.1 Obama, D+23.8 8: 88-11.3 Obama, D+39

    I think he means which party is the incumbent party.
  21. Never mind, they do, it just takes months before they start to... (the first dropped on March 9)
  22. No one is dropping out, everyone is staying in until the conventions, and it is really confusing me.
