    % Shifts will be excellent;, making scenarios much easier. But in some cases it’d be better done by region. I know this is a big ask but any chance of regional % shift in the future? So you could for example give Labour a 4% boost in Outer London using a universal shift for that region.

    @Bjorn,

    One step at a time. 🙂 Regional % shifts might happen in the future, yes.

    various currency symbols are not recognized by the game for some reason such as the sign for the NIS. I’m looking forward to the PI update a lot and the modernization of CI.

    @NYRep,

    Yes, that doesn’t work on my system either. For now, you might want to use just ‘NIS’. I’ll look into this.

    I’m sorry to keep asking for things, but is there a possibility you could make the incumbent party and candidates change automatically? Because when editing the %s in a constituency, it is easy to forget to change the incumbency.

    @Shane,

    Can you say more about what you mean?

  8. Shane July 13, 2017 at 11:59 am #

    @anthony_270admin,

    When in the Editor, changing the percentages in a constituency, sometimes the seat will ‘change hands’. But it becomes time-consuming when you need to manually tick and untick the incumbent boxes.

  9. anthony_270admin July 13, 2017 at 12:22 pm #

    @Shane,

    Ok, I think I understand what you’re saying here. The problem is that these things are logically independent – the starting %s could shift dramatically while the incumbent could still be the candidate with the lower %s.

    I was wondering in the next update if there would be a voter turnout feature

    EG

    72% of the electorate voted

    I think this would tie in well with the planned swing feature you are adding in the next update.

    @Rob,

    That would be pretty straightforward to add – we’ll see.

    @admin_270 thanks for the changes

  14. NYrepublican July 17, 2017 at 7:34 pm #

    @admin_270
    Also what does the new basics tab do?

  15. anthony_270admin July 18, 2017 at 1:06 pm #

    The Basics tab includes most of what was on the main Editor window. Adding the tabs is a first step in making the Editor user-interface more ‘flat’.

  16. NYrepublican July 18, 2017 at 3:56 pm #

    @anthony_270admin How long will it be till the update is released? I’m looking forward to all the new features.

  17. anthony_270admin July 18, 2017 at 4:14 pm #

    I’m currently adding the official 2010, which requires a bit of editing.

  18. Shane July 19, 2017 at 2:10 pm #

    Are you planning on adding anything else to your to-do list? 😉

  19. anthony_270admin July 19, 2017 at 2:21 pm #

    That’s the final feature for this update. I expect there to be future updates with new features. 🙂

  20. NYrepublican July 19, 2017 at 3:34 pm #

    @admin_270 how long till we can expect the UK 2010 update so then we can have France 2017

  21. anthony_270admin July 19, 2017 at 3:45 pm #

    Don’t know – it will be done when it’s ready. Best guess is a few days.

  22. Daons July 20, 2017 at 4:10 pm #

    Is there a bug with the turnout feature, the actual turnout doesn’t seem to match with what is set manually?

  23. anthony_270admin July 21, 2017 at 4:11 pm #

    @Daons,

    Can you tell me what kind of discrepancies you get?

  24. Daons July 21, 2017 at 5:44 pm #

    I have done a couple of tests for compulsory voting etc and turnout seems to drop to about half of what is specified, for example 100% ends up at about 60% and 1% ends up at about 0.5%. Not sure if it is to do with undecideds or something but on election night it still acts strangely.

    Thanks
