PhoenixGreen Posted March 30, 2014 Share Posted March 30, 2014 I'd *Love* to make a Tasmanian Election 2014 scenario. I followed this one very closely, it's still fresh on my mind and I believe I have a fairly good grasp of the editor. The problem is that I'm not sure if it's possible to create multi-member constituencies with proportional representation.In Tasmania we use the same Federal electorates ofBass Braddon DenisonFranklin Lyons Each with 5 seats distributed proportionally, adding up to a 25 seat parliament. Since the Tasmanian Greens are an established party down here this system often delivers hung parliaments and minority government. In 2010 the parliament was split 10 Labor, 10 Liberal, 5 Greens where 13 makes a majority. I notice that there is a "seats" field in the region editor, but the engine treats all the seats as a bloc and assigns them together, rather than splitting them up and assigning them proportionally. Can anyone think of a way to do this, or would there need to be engine tweaks to make it happen?The 2014 election was particularly colourful with the Greens occasionally outpolling Labor and campaigning to become the next opposition, the Palmer United Party (Led by their eccentric billionaire leader) carpet-bombing the state with expensive election material and the Liberals struggling to achieve a parliamentary majority despite having over 50% support. This is an election I'd absolutely love to play. Any help would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
