What’s new in this upgrade from the previous official release (v. 3.0.7)
- added U.K. 2019
- Platform Screen > hover over a given issue position > shows regional center and (if applicable) regional party center descriptions (ex. ‘Region > Center, Party Region > Center-Left’) and how far from own position to centers
- fixed bug in which stories computer players choose to spin
- fixed bug doing ground effects
- added ‘pop undecideds’ functionality (game engine treats ‘undecided’ as an unstable state, and ‘pops’ voters to a candidate with + momentum who is tied for 1st in their Favorability scores at a rate that tends to cause fewer undecideds)
- Constituency Screen > moved up and down buttons for leaders to right, made bigger
- decreased how powerful Ground Ops are (Org. Strength x Footsoldiers), now if up to 7 days out is full powered, else up to 20 days out is 0.5, else up to 40 days out is 0.3, else up to 60 days out is 0.2, else up to 80 days out is 0.1, else up to 100 days out is 0.05, else up to 200 days out is 0.01, else is 0

A minor point, but I think Johnson’s leadership should be lowered, to either a 3 or a 4. It only took his government a few months to collapse, and during his tenure he seemed rather ineffective.
Some minor things I’ve picked up:
1. The percentages for some seats are waaaaay off to the point where the game loses some interest because you can’t fight over the seats in the news.
I’ve created my own version, all other things staying the same, but with percentages using constituency polling and Best for Britain’s MRP polling which I will upload for those interested.
2. Lots of candidate names are wrong – for example, lists Tom Watson as Labour candidate even though he retired (and lots more like this).
3. Caroline Lucas is no longer the leader of the Green Party – the current leaders are Sian Berry and Jonathan Bartley. Also lots of the ‘alternative leaders’ should just be deleted – Nick Clegg is no longer involved in politics, for example.
4. The titles for some people are wrong – for example, Jo Swinson is called Rt. Hon, but is not a privy councillor.
5. Lots of the incumbents are wrong – many have the 2015 winner instead of 2017. Especially true for candidates being marked as incumbents when the incumbent has retired.
6. Especially true for the Brexit Party (but to a lesser extent the Greens), many candidates aren’t turned on when they are on the ballot. For the Brexit Party, this is especially true when you get to the last quintile of the alphabet so maybe it wasn’t saved?
7. Descriptions are very weird, don’t think some of them have been updated from 2017 election – especially Northern Ireland parties.
8. Missing some of the debates from the schedule – including this week’s head to head debate between Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson.
9. The Lib Dem logo is the logo last used in the 2005 election – the blue background has (thankfully) been retired for a long time now!
10. The highscore bonuses haven’t been updated from the 2017 version – you get points for beating Karen Bradley and Ben Spencer!
11. I’d get rid of most the independent candidates apart from the interesting ones (MPs running as independents/TIGFC, George Galloway, Claire Wright and Jason Zadrozny)
Thanks for this feedback! Not sure what happened with some of the local candidate names and ballot access. I will review these. All points noted.
There should be a new update soon.
Feedback noted. His Leadership might be lowered. Of course, he inherited a mess, and resigned from May’s Cabinet in protest at how she was handling Brexit.
Which debate are you referring to as missing?
