  1. % 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.

  2. 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.

  3. @NYRep,

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

  4. @anthony_270admin

    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.

  5. @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.

  6. @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.

  7. @anthony_270admin

    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.

  8. – Editor > fixed bug where would move mouse to another app, then move back, and non-active window would be brought to front
    – Editor > Relations button removed
    – Editor > added new tab, including ‘Basics’ and ‘Relations’
    – Editor > Basics > Start > updated date controls
    – Editor > Relations > added list of each party’s scores
    – Editor > Relations > can set whether parties in coalition

  9. 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’.

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

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

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

  13. 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

  14. – Editor > Regions > Issues > can see all issues, centers, profiles at a glance
    – added official U.K. – 2010

  15. – can export campaigns as folder or zip (compressed) file automatically
    – fixed graphical glitches with controls not updating

  16. Note exporting means exporting to a user-specified location on that user’s computer. For example, I can export my United States – 2020 campaign to my desktop as a zip file. Then, I can easily post it to campaigns.270soft.com, or what have you.
