I am new to democracy 4, had now a long time an eye on it and I finally bought it.
I am someone, probably like you, who really likes to politics in on the meta-layer. For a long time, I was spectating the Democracy series. Now I finally joined in and some questions have arisen for me.
Sorry if they are already answerd somewhere else.
Do I understand it correctly that Positech Games is a one-man company by Cliff Harris?
Therefore, my respect and great work!
Well interface (Clean and organized, quick understandable presentation of effects)
I really like that voters are not just a group but present on the individual level.
What I already tried out to mod (mainly policies) is quite easy to do. And I have really little programming/scripting experience. So, thanks!
Since the game is a simulation of politics, to what extend is political knowledge/concepts are in/played a role in building the game?
(Eg. how are the voters calculation)
According to the Trello board the most of it are “simple” Adjustments.
Is there more content planned?
I could imagine many new features and aspects to be introduced to the game.
Now some more modding questions that I want to ask.
- Are new policy areas modable? Like creating a Ministry of X (Space or whatever)
I saw part of the parts are in the open csv and strings, But I assume there are also Gui dependencies, or am I wrong?
Following the previous, question is the game GUI modable or planned to be moddable?
Do I understand it correctly that all variables are between 0 and 1? Nice for statistical Analysis but for interval variables like GDP in a game.
Are is the Icon limited in display (eg. no pictures with some more color) (svg)
A possible better visualization of Law and I just like colors.
