    To edit % shifts, Editor > Regions > Shifts.

    I might be blind but where does it show the swing in seats?

  4. anthony_270admin July 7, 2017 at 5:03 pm #

    @Nathan,

    On election night, the overall swing is shown when looking at a regional summary on the panel on the right, and is updated as the election results come in.

    @NYRep,

    Welcome! That tab probably will have other variables that can currently only be edited directly in the XML, in the future.

    @anthony_270admin – Oh! Maybe you should rephrase that, to ‘seat change’. Swing is a term used here for percentage change between parties, like this: http://imgur.com/c0mWBaD. That would be a nice feature to have too btw!

    @Nathan,

    Thanks for this – description changed. % swing would be fun too, perhaps as an option for campaign designers.

    This may not be possible with the game engine, so I apologise in advance, but it’d be good to be able to import previous campaign results, which can then be edited with the % shift.

    The new swing stat is really nice, it really adds to the depth of the election night

    One small suggestion, in the UK, results are often discussed in terms of individual majorities. At the moment on the game you can view by highest percent but an interesting addition would be a option to sort by highest numerical majority over the second place candidate. i.e. Islington North LAB Majority of 15,321

    Keep up the great work it is really an excellent quality sim series

    Thanks

    @Daons,

    Thanks for this feedback! Suggestion re magnitude of majorities noted.

  11. anthony_270admin July 12, 2017 at 3:32 pm #

    @Shane,

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

    Also, for some reason if characters are in a non-roman alphabet like the hebrew,arabic etc. alphabets the game doesn’t recongnize it.

  13. anthony_270admin July 12, 2017 at 4:49 pm #

    @NYRep,

    I am aware of this – thanks. It has to do with how characters are represented in the relevant technologies.

    Would it be possible to have a “set all” button for the dates for the endorsers in the editor? Not a major problem but it is a bit of a faff to have to go through each endorser if you want to have a new scenario set in a different year.

  15. anthony_270admin July 19, 2017 at 12:00 pm #

    @Will,

    Yes, it’s on the to-do list.

  16. Ed C July 21, 2017 at 4:53 pm #

    Hey, just a suggestion in regards to endorsements. I think it would be wise to introduce a “never endorses” feature for certain parties for certain endorsers – ie. the Guardian just simply would never endorse a Conservative Government. This would help massively in regions such as Northern Ireland as well as adding that tiny bit of realism that can otherwise be irritating when you see The Rebel in Canada endorse the NDP and the Guardian endorse the Tories in the UK.

    Just an idea anyway, another opinion imo would be just to restrict/prohibit certain parties from gaining support from certain endorsers, ect.
