Is there significant gamer interest in European election games?

Most European democractic systems make for much more interesting games, with a wider variety of options, because they tend to be far less binary than the American system. So yes, I'd imagine there is.

no thank you

 

if anything focus on making a 2024 official version w candidates  

hard disagree. European elections are more interesting at this point and 2024 is so far away that this would be ridiculous.

False.  Trump has already told his people that he will run for president in 2024 if Biden is allowed into the White House.  Will any Republicans challenge him?  Who will the Democrats nominate if Biden does not make it to a second term?

The stage has already been set for an exciting what-if President Infinity '24 game if @admin_270 develops and markets the update.

Whatever happens after Jan. 20th, the first priority as I see it right now is the American Presidential election in 2024. This doesn't mean features won't be added to PMI or CI or PI that are useful for modding European (or other) elections, though.

:o

2024? That's kind of a long way from now.

Admin, respectfully I think your focus should be features and in 2023 focus on 2024.

Yes, to clarify, the focus is on features that largely will be useful for President Infinity, and in particular for U.S. Presidential elections. I'm not saying focus on the specifics of the 2024 election at this point.

Have you considered adding a Proportional representation Electoral college? I think you can use the same formula as you do for primaries as they'd work the same way.

Do you mean nationwide PR? It's easy to implement the basic mechanics of this. But then all the strategy changes, and that's the difficult part to implement.

What I meant was let's say the Republican comes in first place in Arizona for example.

He gets 56% of the vote.

So he'll get 56% of the electors available.

Dem gets 44% of the vote

They get 44% of the electors.

Is there anywhere IRL this has been proposed?
