For those of you who want a real challenge, I have created a new mission called Newland - basically the idea is that the former Government fell, leaving the country in a state of anarchy. You come to power with no laws in force at all (apart from the very minimum). You must try to solve the many problems that the state of anarchy has created, but do so on a minimum budget as the economy has imploded.
I’ve had a few goes at this and I generally reach the debt ceiling every time, although I have managed to get to well over 50% support. The global economy going into recession was the cruel blow that destroyed my hopes last time.
I’d be interested to see whether anyone can actually manage to get re-elected. Download it from thomashughes.co.uk/democracy/Newland.zip
There are three files - the mission file (Newland.txt) needs to be put in C:\Program Files\Democracy2\data\missions, and the two flags (the bitmaps) need to go in C:\Program Files\Democracy2\data\bitmaps\flags. Change the root if appropriate.
