Odd problem with ridings

RI Democrat

Recommended Posts

In trying to finish the V for Vendetta scenario, I've had an odd problem with a party's riding percentages. Specifically, the Coalition for Resistance's candidates start out with extremely low percentages in the ridings even if I edit the ridings file to give them higher percentages. For example, my ridings file says Gerry Adams should have 45% in Belfast West, yet he usually starts with 2-5%. I haven't added or subtracted any points from the CfR in the electorate trends file, and even if my percentages total to over 100% in some cases, that alone wouldn't account for a single party dropping up to 40 points at the beginning of the game.

Has anyone else ever encountered this, and do you know how to fix it?

Your experience is similar but far more extreme than anything I have encountered

Things that can adversely affect starting riding %;

Having the PR option set to 'ON'

I have found that this can throw out some bizarre starting positions. I never worked out how to correct this.

Party strength

If you have designed a scenario where a party/party leader is very strong and others are very weak, the game will often compensate by giving you a harder starting position.

Electoral Trends file

As you seem to realise.
