I want to do this because I feel its an element in the game which hasn’t been sufficiently tackled. The premises are these:
Press control/regulation effecting liberal and conservative happiness together but detracting from socialist.
Also something to reflect the fact that most press is owned by wealthy capitalistic elites who propagate their agenda, maybe a slider for that but I think it would be better to simply have a modifier based off inequality(more inequality = more capitalistic propaganda in the media). What do you guys think?
Press control needs a ‘free press’ indicator to show how free the press is, effecting various areas of society. I need to think on what effects to attach to this later.
Secondly, political funding.
Gives income for the government, comfort to capitalists and wealthy(who have paid off the government) and annoys socialists alot along with liberals.
It’s unrealistic in that it gives money to the government not a party, however it will be giving money to keep a capitalistic party in power due to the effects so it works de facto I think.
P.S. there is no certainty I can do this, but I had a glance over the modding methodology and it seems fairly straight forward. Also a guy in this forum made a nice modder GUI
