Democracy is a great game. We all know that. Its alsoa leader in its field.However, Democracy two, right now, seems the same game, updated a bit. This needs to change.
Democracy 2 needs multiple countries, with multiple difficuly levels and multiple scenarios. Upon readin the diary, it seems that when I buy this game I will become leader of a virtual country. I will not have a choice of country. A choice of country is required, alongside a mini-explanation of what goes on at the start of my country. The possibility of a dificulty level and other information is there too.
A world map with countries will be helpful, possibly randomised country names and relative status internationally and nationally. However, large and small countries will have differant things to do- large countries will be harder to run efficiently, small countries will be more susceptable to change and have (usually) less resources.
On the subject of resources, each country could have a more detailed budget, listing resource prices (moving accordingly), and percentage of world resource found within your borders, and those needed for import.
Infrastucture should be allowed to be built. SO if you choose to build a ‘National Rail Service’, you lose money over time, but make most voters more hapy, create jobs, make motorists unhappy etc. Options could include dams, highways, ports, large factories etc.
Alongside this, diplomacy (help with natural disasters, help with monetary difficulties) could be implemented.
Countries should be able to recieve news from each other, including natural disasters (probability depending on location, V. Low), assassinations, war (?) etc. and act upon them (cancelling imports/exports, providing assistance) and these actions should have an effect on voters.
Country Info Example:
This could implement currency economics, large scale businesses ad their effect on economy and voters, war, imports/exports and their relative effects.
Just some ideas that need to be bounced around. Hopefullly it made some sense.
P.S why do you use BMT Micro Orders? They take forever.
