You can access the Import feature by Select Campaign and Players Screen > Change Campaign > Import.
Excellent! Can you add a button to set individual candidates to every ballot or off of every ballot? It would help speed things up when creating candidates and placing them on ballots or taking them off of most ballots.
Thanks for this – noted for primaries.
Like How You Can Mess With The Poll Closing Times. I Have Tested Out And It Works Like I Want It To Be. I Hope You Guys Keep Making This Game Better And Better. Also Can You Add The % Of A Candidates Chance Of Winning The Party’s Nomination In The Primary’s. I’ll Help You Get A Better View Of Where You Are In The Polls And How You Stand In Terms Of Winning. Thank You And Keep Making This Game Awesome
Thanks for the feedback! Well, there’s the Crystal Ball rankings in the primaries – I can see why a % chance of winning might be interesting – we’ll see.
Is there any way of slowing the election night down? I would say it’s the most exiting part of the game and I’d love to follow how the votes come in, how many precincts are reporting and so on. Thanks for this amazing game.
You can pause it (pause button on top of election screen), but not to slow it down.
Now Here’s One Single ?. Is Multiplayer Something Your Considering?. If Not Can You Implement Some Kind Of Local Or Maybe A Online Multiplayer But The Online Multiplayer Is Only For The Election It Self. Primarys Would Not Work.
Multiplayer is not something at the top of the to-do list right now. It might happen at some point in the future.
I Sent A E-mail BTW
Would it be possible to implement some sort of ‘import candidate’ feature? I like playing with custom candidates, and I find it a bit tedious to have to keep recreating them for different campaigns.
It would be straightforward for certain respects, tricky for others. I’ll think about it.
I was wondering if there was a way y’all could hide available funds of opposing campaigns. Maybe make it public on a monthly or quarterly bases. I spend a lot of time adjusting my spending on what other campaigns have and while cash on hand is available in real life quarterly or through leaks I shouldn’t know exactly what they have every turn just a thought.
It would be more realistic, making it public on a monthly basis is a good idea – we’ll see.
And it could be another thing for spies to uncover.
For both CI and PI: any way we could see what states/races are within 5% of one another on a list of sorts on election night, in realtime? It would just be a list of right.
*a list. Sorry.
Also Could Add Things From The Older Games Like On Election Night You Can Click The Bubble To See When A State Is Called?
Is their any chance that ad types could be modded via the official editor (rather than going into xmls) for ease of adjusting running cost calculations etc.
State calls on election night would be great to see again,
I’ve added modifying ad types in the Editor to the to-do list – thanks for this.
I don’t know if you got the map (1637 Massachusetts) I emailed to you, but it seems like there might be an issue with the map creator. Two experts map makers, JViking and Conservative Elector, were also unable to get my map working. This is my first attempt at making the map myself, so it could be possible I’m doing something wrong; although, I think the other two would have seen any errors.
i have it, and it’s in the e-mail queue.
Small bug – I Have tried to edit the advertising running costs in the XMLs but they only update for general elections and not primaries. The costs remain at the original level for the primaries.
Being able to edit ads will be added to the Editor at some point – I’ve noted this, though.
Is there a possibility we can have an option to only view our party’s primary election results as a popup as a large number of regions can be quite a click fest with multiple primaries on a single day.
@Daons re party election results as a single pop-up,
This is a good idea, it’s noted.
