  1. @Anthony

    I’m curious. and maybe this is impossible, but do you ever plan on integrating Congress Infinity into President Infinity? I guess to do that, the player would have to be the Republican or Democrat committees rather than a candidate. Or the candidate could help campaign for congress people running for office.

  3. I guess you should also include the ability to delete and add regions like in President Infinity.

    If I try to delete the State of Virginia for example, I get this message:

    “The ability to delete abstract regions will be added in an update. For now, you can only delete fundamental regions.”

    If you are able to, I hope that you can add the ability to delete both abstract and fundamental regions.

  4. I’d change Indiana from a 53-47 to a 55-45 as well…same with Iowa — lower that to maybe 50-41 or 52-43. That’s slightly more consistent with what polls are showing so far.

  5. @Arjav

    Iowa should probably not be the same as Indian, since some people see Iowa as possibly going Blue, but no one argues that Indiana will.

  6. Iowa won’t come close to blue — 55-45 at most and that’s if Judge gets lucky. Grassley is more popular than any other senator they’ve had.

  7. Arjav’s margin for Iowa sounds about right. Indiana looks like it’s leaning Bayh’s way since he entered the race. Before he entered, it would have been a Republican hold. It’s a toss-up at best now.

  9. @Arjav re Iowa %s,

    The 55-45 is based on my best-guess from recent polling. My guess is you’re right, and this is solid R.

  10. Hi Anthony,

    I tried to go in and edit the Congress Infinity campaigns to make some of these changes (Rubio in Florida, etc) but couldn’t figure out where to do it despite heavily modding President infinity.

    Do we not have access to mod Congress Infinity (names of candidates, polling, etc) at this time?

  11. @Anthony I am having problems with a map I imported, and sent an email with the file included. I just replied to our previous transaction. Will primaries at some point, be added to this? Seems like a lot of time and resources would have to go into it.

  12. @Dallas,

    I’ve received the e-mail. There might be some primaries functionality added at some point – nothing’s planned right now, though.

  13. Anthony,

    Thanks! I just didn’t scroll down far enough in the regions. I saw the list of states and no way to name the candidates – didn’t scroll to the end of the list to see the Senate races listed after all.

    Thanks for the help!

  14. @Ted,

    Ya, it’s a bit counter-intuitive. I might change that so there’s another drop-down list when dealing with the Senate or House that contains the basic political units for a given state.

  15. @EAY,

    Thanks for the feedback! Do you mean in this update will there be updated House names? Probably not – I’ll wait until primaries are pretty much done.
