New offers screen first look

There’s a new offers screen in the upcoming versions of President Infinity and Prime Minister Infinity. Here’s what it looks like in President Infinity.

There are a few things that are different from the previous offers screen. First, there are more options, including here a Cabinet slot being offered, the ability to offer to become a surrogate, and to offer to change an issue position.

Offers can include combinations where it makes sense – for example, you can offer the VP slot and to change one of your issue positions at the same time.

Another big difference is that offers are resolved immediately, instead of having to wait until turn processing.

The other big difference is that offers can now be done after the election, if no one has a majority government, where it proceeds in turns where a player can make one offer per turn.

Here is Prime Minister Infinity – U.K.’s 2010 where that can be relevant.

You can also see that Clegg is being offered a deputy slot, and that you can offer or receive a ‘confidence and supply’ agreement in the case of a minority government, instead of a coalition, such as the recent Tory-DUP arrangement in the U.K.

Feedback welcome!

    My only question is, when can we have this mystical and a amazing upgrade?

    This is the final planned major feature to be added before the next PMI – U.K. update, and rounds out some things for the 2017 and 2010 campaigns. So, for PMI – U.K. shouldn’t be that long – couple weeks is my best guess. PI, I don’t know.

    Looks absolutely awsome

    Love this.

    Side question I have been meaning to ask:
    Where in the XML files is the part that triggers the High Score Bonus message for the “historic achievement” that was attached to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 scenario?

    @Aaron,

    Can you rephrase? Are you talking about the leader goal of 270 seats?

    Here’s an idea. Perhaps you could give a VP their own command points instead of sharing them with his running mate.
    Just an idea I had in mind~ 🙂

    This is a amazing. One question, will the CPU controlled candidates make cabinet offers to other CPU or human controlled candidates?

  8. anthony_270admin August 11, 2017 at 11:39 pm #

    @Jonathan,

    Yes. For game play purposes, if a player accepts a cabinet spot, your highscore is -5. If you accept a cabinet spot, your highscore if they win the nomination and you decide to continue playing as them is +5.

    @Anthony
    When I want to play the 2016 campaign beginning the primaries and selecting Evan McMullin, it always crashed with “0.01 is not a valid floating value point”. Could you fix it ?

    Looks brilliant, so long as parties are Realistic about their choices. Otherwise, awesome!

  11. Ed August 12, 2017 at 7:23 am #

    Now all we need is for candidates who lose the first few primaries to drop out 😛 then both games will be looking brilliant

  12. Ed August 12, 2017 at 7:24 am #

    Oh and have a system stopping endorsers from endorsing people that in real life they’d never endorse as I’ve mentioned before

    @anthony

    Excellent. Will CPU candidates also make similar offers to other CPU candidates. Will it show something like “Elizabeth Warren drops out and endorses Cory Booker upon promise of a cabinet position” or something like that? Or is this only offered to human controlled candidates?

    @anthony

    No, I’m talking about the note that pops up when (in the 2016 scenario) Clinton wins the nomination. Something along the lines of +10 high score for your historic achievement.

    @anthony
    I’m so looking forward to this. I hope it comes really soon.

  16. Conservative Elector 2 August 17, 2017 at 3:37 pm #

    Does this mean that we will get the possibility to name a full future cabinet as well? It would be awesome, but I can imagine it’s quiet complicated to make it happen.

  17. anthony_270admin August 17, 2017 at 3:52 pm #

    @Conservative Elector 2,

    No, you can just offer cabinet slots in general.

  18. NYrepublican August 18, 2017 at 12:56 pm #

    When can we expect a sneak-peek I’m looking forward to creating a pro-devolution coalition.

  19. anthony_270admin August 18, 2017 at 2:01 pm #

    My best guess is by next Friday – we’ll see.
