Creationism/science probably doesn’t have a mojor effect in reality, since religious beliefs are often more influemced by self or parents than school. However, I like like because it adds something more to a policy with only 2 main effects.
Some good changes. Ideas for space Program:
Cost a bit less, Space is expensive but not quite so expensive + it loses its usefulness
Areospace boom Event more likely
Required for Rocket crash
Event where “sucessful space mission” gains lots of patiot + everyone support, patriot membership increased
Other things that could go into the update:
dilema where you interfere in a foriegn bank to protect your customers(based on the UK moving its Icelandic bank savers)
More of a Downside to lowering motorway funding
More of a downside to lowering labour laws(such as lower LowIncome as the employers cut wages)
A situation if you over fund the police/give police too much power, I made so that it increased liberal membership/made liberals unhappy
Downside to Telecommuting(productivity?)
Make spending £20M on stem cells not casue tech backwater
Stem cells raise lifespan(slighlty)
Expand immigration:Raise productivity, raise farmers happiness(cheap labour)
Few more foreign relations dilemas and events:CO2 trading, foriegn brain drain(caused by Tax shelter, happy wealthy),International Anti-terrorism organisation(caused by high terrorism, unpopular),
Maybe agrecultural subsides lowers foreign relations
Maybe foreign relations effects oil supply
I made finacial regulation an uncancleable policy, which is an increadably simple version of the real world, but basically makes Market meltdown more likely(I’m planning on many more), but raises GDP, wealthy & Capitalists happiness.
Proof for Global warming, Event which increases environmentalist membership
Maybe tight handgun laws should lower Vigilantee mobs
An expensive C02 offset policy, which sells your C02 abroard, costing lots but not many votes.
Tobbaco law doesn’t really make any somkers unhappy except the ones who are too young to vote! eg -0.3*(x^3) would be better
Same with alcohol law except more eg -0.4*(x^2)
Alcohol & tobacco tax should lower poor earning, since in a country with major benifits for poor there aren’t going to be any major increases in poverty.
Black market could be for tobbaco tax,alcohol tax, sales tax, maybe alcohol law with low strength ect, handgun laws, narcotics and border controlls. Could cause organised crime?
random events which build up global warmings effects, oil shortages and ect
Inner city riots are caused by the poor being unhappy
Probably more of an idea for a mod…
New Voter groups;racist and ethnic minority
There could be an interesting mission like '50s & '60s USA where lots of dilemas make you choose between a lot of votes and huge racial tension
Perhaps I have said too much…
