    Excellent changes. When can we expect the release?

    Don’t know. Depends how much is added. Probably an unofficial release end of next week.

    Can we expect a easier way to import maps? without such strict restrictions?

    Question: How does someone edit the general election numbers for a state? Or model a state’s view on an issue in the General election in the editor? I’m a little confused. (This is a question more to the community).

    I can edit a state’s primary electorate’s views on the issues but the General election seems weird in the editor.

    (Also how about party lines?)

    – ‘Turn Summary’ -> ‘Notes’

    So clicking on the county for example,will place the text automatically? If so this would be amazing and make it SO much easier for Senatorial,and Gubernatorial

    Could we have a button to set a region’s issue leanings to match a party in the same way we can with candidates?

    Something like;

    Set ‘Alabama’ to ‘Democratic Party’ and the issues are automatically switched.

    Thanks

    @Libertarian,

    No, it’s not for placing the abbreviations, but for selecting fill regions coordinates.

    However, you can now see the coordinates when you move the cursor across the map, and so can simply decide where you want the abbreviation to be, note the coordinates, and then set them with the text boxes.

    @Daons,

    Are you thinking certain regions tend to match up with party platforms? So it would be nice to be able to set a ‘red state’, say, to a party’s platform?

    @Victorraiders,

    That’s an interesting idea – we’ll see.

  13. anthony_270admin August 17, 2016 at 5:36 pm #

    @RR43,

    I’m not sure I understand the question. Can you say more about this?

  14. anthony_270admin August 17, 2016 at 5:37 pm #

    @Libertarian re importing maps,

    What do you mean by ‘without such strict restrictions’?

  15. anthony_270admin August 17, 2016 at 6:31 pm #

    – fixed bug where player who wins contested convention had party’s name instead of candidate’s name when viewing General Election

    @anthony_270admin

    Yes especially for those creating governor races it can be quite time consuming to set each county/ region issue by issue. I know that the default states have this already but for new scenarios it would be useful to have an option to align a region in one go like we can with candidates especially where info is sparse.

    Thanks

    @Daons,

    Ok, request noted. We’ll see. What I was considering was creating region groups and then being able to set the platform for the group. Then you can simply add a region to the group and it takes the set platform.

    @anthony_270admin

    That sounds good, especially if it all remains mod-able 🙂
