    He starts off with poor numbers, as it's his last go, but it's definitely possible to win as him.

    True, perhaps Labour should have slightly more than the ~£9 million they spent for game purposes. That being said, the Tories have spent just over £15m for three GEs in a row, so I feel the £12m they were given in the original PMF was too low. As I say, it doesn't change the results radically, and is more of a personal preference than anything!

    It's actually for the GOP nomination.

    I've posted the link before, but it's outdated now. I'll get the link up soon.

    Alright, if you don't mind I may leave spending as it is, given it doesn't really change a whole lot and you seem comfortable with your modifications to the scenario. :)

    Also any other suggestions for the scenario? Since I'm back with this I might get around to adding some events to it like Bigotgate, Cleggmania, and maybe something to balance out Cameron. I believe you can have events not fire if someone else is leader, so that would be perfect.

    Hmm if you want a Cameron event- When Osborne actually talked about austerity and what he would do in office, the Tories actually dipped in the polls. Also as shown by how Cleggmania fizzled out maybe an event about how Hung Parliament = Bad which papers kept going on about and also the Daily Mail and others did start randomly attacking Clegg like this

    Some more crazy things...
    Headless Chicken Primaries, Part I
    Screen Shot 2016-12-27 at 8.25.05 PM.png
    Some Highlights:

    I somehow got 1.8% of the vote without doing anything. O'Malley once had something like -60 power from a scandal. Castro, the third-place finisher in the PV and around fifth in delegates, won no states. Two different candidates won the first four primaries, neither of them survived past April. Biden's delegate lead is only a month old, but he has been ahead in the popular vote since the beginning. The Democratic convention lasted four ballots, with Biden picking Rahm Emmanuel as veep for some reason.

    Some Highlights:

    Carson was the last of Rubio's opponent's remaining in, despite the fact that he had had negative momentum since the previous November. Jindal actually did shit. The convention lasted seven ballots. Kasich became the Veep nominee.
    Headless Chicken Primaries, Part III
    Screen Shot 2016-12-27 at 8.25.35 PM.png
    Some Highlights:

    Johnson started out with a lead in 39 states. He's been behind since November. Petersen dropped out for no apparent reason.

    As a little fantasy scenario, I destroyed the party system, and built a new one on its wreckage.
    • The Nationals: Third-positionist, and radically so, except on LGBT issues, where they are merely conservative. I changed their party color to brown (obviously). Used the Republicans as the base party. (It's too bad you can't create an entirely new on, at least as far as I know.)
    • The Liberals: Socially liberal, economically center-right to right-wing. Their party color is a Welshwoman. Tongue.png Used the Democrats as the base party.
    • The Conservatives: Rightwing in everything, although not fanatically so. Their party color is gold. McMullinites are the base. I never intended to create them, I only added them in when I realized I couldn't mix and match leaders from the parties to make Kasich Clinton's veep, and that, without a Republican on the Liberal ticket, there might as well be a conservative party.
    • The Socialists: Basically OTL's Greens, just under the Red flag.
    I then set all of the leaders' positions to that of their parties. I had planned to party-switch Veeps, as mentioned earlier, but, when that wasn't possible, I chose the most appropriate-seeming ones for each (Booker for the Libs, and Tim Scott for the Nats).
    Clinton was leading until the last four days, when Trump, who had probably been sitting tight on it since the beginning of the campaign (at least I never saw a Clinton scandal previous to it), unleashed a scandal with -16 coverage slant, and -15 power. IRL, that's probably equivalent to a bona fide indictment or something. Here's the map.

    In case you can't see it, the Conservatives are the second-place finisher in Utah.
    I think it went pretty well, although the inability to veep-switch really hampered the new party system aspect; almost all endorsers stayed with their OTL parties, except for the unions. I'm also worries that the Conservatives (who, despite their low vote share, spent a lot of time successfully attacking Clinton) split the fiscally conservative vote too much. I'd also just like conformation on whether it is, unfortunately, impossible to transfer leaders from one party to another. If it can be done, can someone please explain how?

    Conservatives and Socialists seem a bit weak, at least nationally.

    There is no way to switch leaders from one Party to another, you have to manually recreate them within the New Party. It's annoying, but not all that difficult if you are running two instances of the application, which allows you to copy over the data without having to jot everything down.

    I am working on a Brexit Referendum scenario. I have complete about the 57% of the total seats, with especific pertentages each, very realistic.

    I have to complete a LOT of things, but the scenario is very interesting.
