  4. @Ben,

    Thanks for this feedback – this was due to the population numbers not being set, and they have been set in the latest internal, so this should be fixed.

    I’m going to be removing the TV and radio ads completely, and replacing them with Billboards, since it seems UK parties are not allowed to run paid advertisements on TV or radio.

  5. Nigel Farage > Issue Familiarity > 3 -> 4.
    Nigel Farage > Stamina > 3 -> 4.
    Nigel Farage > Experience > 3 -> 2.

  6. About what you said about the TV and Radio ads,

    – we still do have party election broadcasts by all the political parties so maybe you could change the name of the TV ads to ‘Election broadcasts’

    – allow us to use them only once, but have them active for the entire time of the election run-up from their creation to the election.

    – possibly just allow us to set the budget and theme/themes for the broadcast which could determine how successful it will be

  7. hi Anthony is the Pre-order still getting released today? The Email i received said i would recive an email on the 7th.

    Many Thanks
    Charlie

  8. @Charlie,

    If you pre-ordered before Jan. 30th, then there will be another update today (probably late in the day PST, so late at night U.K. time).

    If you pre-ordered after Jan. 30th, then the next round is Feb. 15th. If for some reason you received an e-mail saying Feb. 7th, then that is in error, and my apologies if that is the case.
