  1. Go ahead, as I also intend to read up on the American colonies.
  2. Do you have any books or articles you'd recommend on the diffusion of the various Christian denominations in the colonies/early United States?
  3. There will soon be a simulation of the world of 1945 run on the forum. Here's a link to the thread showing the rules and how to join: http://eregime.org/index.php?showtopic=17895
  4. Since it's been well over a year, I will bump this thread again to note that a world simulation set in 1994 is now running on eRegime, in which players join as countries, political parties, or militants of some kind (guerrillas, terrorist organizations.) Next year there's going to be a world simulation set in 1945, and I actually intend to "integrate" it into President Infinity and Prime Minister Infinity, in the sense of using the latter to simulate certain elections (e.g. the Truman and Republican players would be able to "compete" indirectly as I input their actions into a modif
  5. For what it's worth, an American professor who was in Berlin during 1989-1990 claimed the following: "One week before the elections in East Germany on March 18, 1990, polls indicated that the Christian Democrats would get less than ten percent of the votes. The Social Democrats and the Communists [i.e. the PDS] would win. Seeing the handwriting on the wall, the Christian Democrats changed tunes on the all-important currency question and promised an immediate one-to-one exchange rate if they won. The next poll indicated that the Christian Democrats would win, and, indeed, they did." (Austin Mur
  6. In old President Forever maps, there used to be wavy lines around the borders of states. I know a certain effect in Photoshop was used to make them, I'm just wondering if anyone here is aware of how. @admin_270
  7. I figure since it's been over a year, mentioning the latest eRegime game is okay. It takes place in 1919; you can play as whatever country, party, or individual existed at the time. We recently had to move from one forum software to another, so activity is only just starting to recover, but you can find it here: http://eregime.org/index.php?act=idx
  8. "Vulnerability" indeed isn't perfect and, thinking about it, shouldn't actually replace integrity. I just used it to point out that some candidates are simply more vulnerable to being attacked in ads and campaign speeches than others, and I think this should be represented. One advantage I think the term "vulnerability" has is being neutral. VCCzar's list has honor on it, for example. Imagine if this were 2004 and users had to argue over how much honor John Kerry has. It'd become subjective very quickly. My intention isn't "to knock down Dukakis' integrity score," it's
  9. I think something like vulnerability would be a better word. For example, Dukakis in the 1988 campaign didn't have problems with being seen as a liar or having a scandalous lifestyle, but he was clearly vulnerable to attack anyway (hence ads attacking his treatment of crime while Governor, and Bush pointing out that Dukakis was a "card-carrying member of the ACLU.") As there's a separate stat for corruption nowadays, I figure that gives even more reason to rename the integrity stat.
  10. As a note, there's a forum area (that just got started) made specifically for English-speaking Power & Revolution players: http://eregime.org/index.php?showforum=12
