  1. Very impressive. I wonder how. I just finished my campaign and it was....one for the memory books! Started off with Rand Paul in the 2016 election with normal difficulty and earliest possible date. No changing ideologies, because that ruins the fun of the experiment. Of course I started the game improving debating skills, issue knowledge and CP and SP, the boring stuff. Disclaimer: I won every debate What was more interesting was how close the Republican Primary was. First Bush led but only marginally, and he got wrecked before September came around. Next up was Trum
  2. How do I get other party members to endorse me? It is a broken convention and me and my opponent has about 45 % of the delegates each, but they keep going to my opponent in the convention. I have about 1200 but need 1217. Yet no one endorses me, even if I offer them a VP shot. This is the 2016 campaign so there are essentially 5-10 candidates who could be VP if they endorsed me
  3. I am wondering if candidates with fringe, mostly far-left / far-right views can: 1. Win the primary? 2. Win the general election? 3. How does the far-left/far-right views affect the campaign? In other words, does the game take into account the extremity of the views, or do they just take the average? For example, imagine a candidate who is far right on half the issues, and far left on the other. Now, on average, this candidate is a centrist. But in practice this would be under heavy attack for each of their issues. I am particularly interested in how thi
  4. Everyone would campaign exclusively in the largest cities and suburbs in America -- foregoing rural voters entirely. Over half the states would be entirely disenfranchised/overlooked because most states either have 1 big city (such as Denver, Colorado) or they are too small to even bother to visit. 25 States have a city of less than 500,000 people. Why bother visiting them when you can visit Los Angeles or New York City who have 10x or 20x that population?
  5. Tried to reverse my dominating win as Reagan earlier, now by playing as Carter in the same scenario. The primaries were a piece of cake. Kennedy ran a terrible campaign despite leading from the get-go! I won every state and promptly prepared for the general election. That's where things got tough! The game started as the republicans leading to me, and for good reason. I had built up my campain and my character, but despite several huge scandals I released against (5 in fact) Reagean, he still won relatively easily. Despite me also winning both debates and using my PIP to snatch up al
  6. It would be more fun if there were 3 big parties in the game. But now it can sometimes get to a blowout in the general election. Sometimes the primary is more fun than the general election in this game.
  7. Say what you about Reagan, will but there can hardly be any candidate in Presidential history that could transcend the political spectrum from Democrats to Republicans.
  8. Find 1 mistake! (hint: not 2) Did you get it? Its the 1980 election, Reagan vs incumbent Carter I wanted to see if I could out-do Reagans performance and win every state. Because DC is almost like a joke, it starts off something like 80 % democratic and its not even a proper state. Therefore I tried to win all actual states, but only Rhode Island deferred to Carter... who the hell are these people anyway ... Better just un-state them in this timeline!
  9. I really like the game a lot. It is original, and I have been playing it since the 2008 version. Just now it is really unstable to play for me even with a great PC in the top 75th percentile. Of course I have SSD and great hardware. Here's just a few crippling bugs that literally make the game unplayable, since they cause crashes. I will list the issues below List index out of bounds (1) List index out of bonds (2) Access violation of address .... Slow primaries, with a lot of candidates. It can take more than several minutes to load 1 turn in the primaries
  10. Had to play as the Republicans once. To my surprise Amy Koubacar went off to win in a nail-biter closer than the Clinton vs Obama primary. She chose Yang as VP! Kloubacar is not a weak candidate, indeed she is a good all-rounder and centrist as Biden. The only relevant area I could attack Kloubacar was in free trade, which I did. It was a toss-up before the election, but I won quite overwhelmingly. Had 4 scandals and saved my ad money for the last week to break Kloubacars momentum to -6 while mine was +24. As a result the win came in quite easy, I almost won New York and Oregon. I
  11. Biden. Won every single state in the primary, except Iowa, strangely enough..
