What are your hopes for the possible You Are President game?


Recommended Posts

If you couldn't tell from the title, what are your hopes for the possible game where you are the president?
I for one am very much hoping for a completely interactive game with little time in between elections being too simulated even if you don't win the presidency yourself.  Let’s say that I choose to play as a third party, I’ll go with the Green Party, and play through the entire election cycle, primaries and the general election, and I get to about 3-4%.I'd love the option to wait/play the 4 years and run again, with a larger base for the second attempt at the Presidency. (And for shits and giggles, if I get the 5% maybe I would get the federal funding?). If the game is integrated with President Infinity AND Congress Infinity (which I don’t know if it is planned, though it would be an interesting concept that I definitely would enjoy), I hope I could still take the Green Party through the elections in the mean time and run for different positions in Congress until the next general election.

If it does end up fully integrated with CI, I wonder if you would have a personal character you are keeping afloat, or could you be invested in the party as a whole. I’m weirdly fixed on this I’ll admit, but I’d love to take the smaller parties (Green, Constitution, Libertarian, etc) and play them throughout various election cycles growing larger slowly, getting seats in Congress and whatnot, and then eventually President. I think that the possibilities are endless with this game concept, and I'm curious to what other people hope the game will be!

I agree with all of this heres a copy and paste from what I had months ago

-Run as rep,sen,gov,become VP,pres

 

-Real candidates(1788-present)

-Start with being able to play from 1788-present 

-if your term limits are up or if its before the bill to limit reelection gets passed die, you are able to continue to play as your party from whenever you want to (if you want to play from 1788 to today with all events happening you can)

-Being able to have the option to continue as another one of your parties candidates after your term limits are up

-Senate/H.O.R opinion on a candidate has effect on if a bill/law gets passed

-Custom Character creation(pre game)

-Custom characters option to choose previous field (Senator,Rep,Athlete,Businessman,Governor.,etc.)and what they were effects there attributes and opinions

-Third party option(or 4th,5th,etc. depending on what partys existed in that time)

-Full control over the military 

-Full stats for all elections in a history book of sort for your game also wars and casualties on each side who won,cost,opinion,etc. also for your current game what states and everything approve on you and who'd vote for you,and states views just like PI

-Elections exactly like or better than President Infinity

-All historical events and your decisions depend on if they happen

-depending on what time it is depends on certain opinions of laws and parties

-All third parties/other parties that got atleast 10,000 votes in every election are an option!(includes socialist,communist,constitution,libertarian,peace and freedom,green,independent,reform,etc. thats just for the present also whatever ones existed in that elections time period)

-depending on the time period strength and opinion of third parties change

-third parties can win senate and H.O.R seats

-Being able to change every aspect of the budget an this has affect of opinion

-Religion,ethnicity,gender,age group,job area(low-class,mid-class,Upper-class)opinion (also stats for who votes for you what percentage of a group wants you) 

-promising certain things during your campaign and presidency and this affects your approval,voting chance,etc.

-Full blown scenario editor (also if there would already be premade state maps with countys already in so i could run for governor thatd be great!)

What do you mean by full control over the military? 

Also, I'd love the ability to be able to switch parties if the game can truly go on 20+ years. Although I feel that the longer the time frame the game allows, the harder it is to make real candidates able to be played against. Do you think that the game would have to have randomly generated candidates if it last for so long?

Just full control as commander in chief,hes confirmed this since then. And I have an interesting idea,just have all senators,rep,governors,congressman,and former politicians  in a pool thans randomly picked,and then random names who win theres elections and such,also they can be just random people like a populist writer,or businessman,etc.

How about making it an option before the game starts. It would be something like "Random Politicians" or "Historical Politicians". If a 3rd party lasts longer or does better than in history, it could randomly generate as a last resort.
