When I change a policy slider, if I click Apply Changes, I consume the expected amount of political capital. If I just hit the escape key after modifying a slider, I get free policy changes. I now know why Dem3 feels so much easier than Dem2: I’ve been playing with semi-unlimited influence and I didn’t know it.
Can this bug be fixed soon please? I really hope this problem is unique to my gameplay, or else a lot of people’s play has been frustratingly easy. I bought the game with Steam, if that’s important. Maybe this glitch is only found on Steam accounts. I don’t know.
