  1. This is because the United Kingdom elects Parliament on the first past the post electoral system (and as someone who campaigned for AV in 2011 and was rejected by 2-1 I cannot see any other electoral system being adopted anytime soon)

  2. Australian system is coming after Favorability, since it requires preference ranking.

    Exit poll feedback noted.

  3. Excellent work with the latest update, Loving the new editing features, especially the map abbreviations.

  4. Could you make FPTP better at handling multi-member constituencies? It’s hard to make a London local election campaign, because I can’t add three candidates from the same party, etc.

  5. Is there any way you could make the ai negotiate more in the event of a hung parliament its great being able to negotiate to form a government but it feels like i am the only one making the offers as i don’t receive an offer or see parties making offers/demands to other parties. This would make this great game event better!!!

  6. @Ben,

    Thanks for this feedback – being able to see the offers made between computer players is a good idea – we’ll see.
