President Infinity v. 2.9.3 sneak-peek for Windows has been released!
This sneak-peek adds the Favorability system, a complete replacement for the underlying electoral modeling in the game. It allows for more accurate greater-than 2 candidate voter dynamics, including rapid ascents and collapses. It does this by modeling scores for each candidates for each voter (the highest score is the candidate the voter will vote for, assuming it is above a threshold), where the electorate is modeled to the 1/10,000th, allowing for a high degree of segmentation.
Since this is such a big change, things are still being fine-tuned. One challenge is keeping voters ‘in their party lanes’ during games that start in the primaries, and this will continue to be worked on.
(Note: for goals for this release cycle, Autumn 2018, see here.)
