President Infinity next release sneak-peek, Windows only

This will most likely be the final sneak-peek before the next official President Infinity release. It continues to tidy up issues and fix bugs related direct pop. vote, among other things.

The two-round option is available in the Editor, but is not enabled in the game. Also, if direct popular vote is selected for a campaign in the Editor, computer player strategy is not updated (computer players still think regions are winner-take-all).

You can download it here.

Note: Windows only at this point. Requires you already have the game installed.

Feedback welcome!

Features list since the previous sneak-peek:

  • 1968 > Endorsers > Sen. Ernest Gruening > surrogate Lisa Murkowski -> Ernest Gruening
  • can no longer view Strategy Screen while in primaries mode if your party has no primaries (fixes bug)
  • if another party’s primaries selected on Main Screen, can now view other party primaries in Strategy Screen
  • chance Vice-Leader makes gaffe if Barnstorming isn’t successful now effected by their Experience
  • fixed bug where name of person making gaffe while barnstorming, regardless of who actually made it, is leader’s
  • gaffes for Leaders and Vice-Leaders now also affected by their Issue Familiarity and Issue Familiarity upgrade
    (chance = (50-energy)*2 + (3-experience)*10 + (3-(issue familiarity+(issue familiarity upgrade/200))*10)
    ex. Energy is 25, Experience is 4, Issue Familarity is 3, Issue Familiarity Upgrade is 50
    chance = (50-25)*2 + (3-4)*10 + (3-(3+50/200))*10 = 50 + (-10) + (-2.5) = 50 – 12.5 = 37.5% chance will have gaffe if barnstorming not successful
  • Main Screen > primaries > fixed bug where would show days until primaries with party where no primaries (nomination type set to ‘none’)
  • Main Screen > direct pop. vote > primaries > fixed bug where delegates option for primaries gone from drop-down box
  • 2004 > Democratic primaries > Michigan > FPP -> PR, primary -> caucus

    What’s the ETA for two-round vote?

    Is there a way for you to combine President, Congress infinity together and have the polling feed off each other and create a coattails effect. I know you can out perform or over perform the Presidential results but it would be fun I think to run all the 2016 elections at once bouncing off each other. Maybe you dont control all three at once and an AI does but I would love to play the 2016 senate races with the Presidential election either boosting my chances or hurting and trying to maneuver

    @Arjav,

    After the U.K. election.

    @Moderate Guy,

    I like this idea, but I think it would require very significant changes to the game engine.

    This latest sneak peak is looking really good. Candidates are withdrawing and endorsing on both official and user scenarios and also the delegates are now displaying in the primaries.

    One small thing and only a cosmetic issue, I’ve noticed I haven’t seen the days to primaries displayed on the map for a while although the option is picked in the options.

    Thanks

    @Daons,

    Thanks for this – noted days to primaries feedback.

    if your candidate lose primaries your choice what candidate the delegates go

    @Victor,

    Good idea – noted.

    Very odd problem in primaries. When popular vote is displayed, the number is WAY smaller than it should be. I might have more supporters in Wyoming than I do in the entire country (general election works fine, this is only in the primaries). Also for no reason the game will sometimes think a state has 1-3 primary voters when there should be hundreds of thousands. It’s random which state it is and seems to change every turn. It will also give me estimated delegates when I’m not above the threshold anywhere. This almost seems to be the replacement bug for the issue I had in the previous version where there would be negative support in random primary states. I think this has a correlation with primary turnout options because it only happens in primaries that use primary turnout numbers.

    Is there a way to program in the primary process which states ai candidates focus on. Like its silly to see Chris Christie focusing so much on Iowa and Ted cruz on NH. I feel like there should be an option to have them specifically target states where the voters ally with them more and have a chance of realistically winning.

    Possibilty of droping out of the primaries and running as third party candidate would be great

  12. Daons May 23, 2017 at 6:02 pm #

    Could there be a possibility to copy primary dates/delegate info from one party to another. It will save time when having multiple parties to edit.

    Thanks
