I believe that many who played Democracy 3 must also be going through the same situation.
The game remains very similar, and unfortunately this brings some problems. The game ends very quickly, perhaps because it is based on turns, which forces you to take quick and radical actions, and making the election arrive within 10 minutes of play (4 or 5 years should mean something).
I start the game by cutting expenses in such a way that I can get reelected (this is possible even at 200% difficulty), with spending cuts the public debt falls (it is possible to pay 2 trillion dollars in 8 years (ie, in a few turns) and after that, the game is won forever because you can do whatever you want.
My suggestion is to add as much and more realistic mods, they make the game better and PLEASE make the time go slowly and that the creation/change/deletion of a policy is gradually slow. THE GAME NEEDS TO BE SLOWER!!
I almost forgot the main thing. It’s very easy to reach the maximum GDP, with liberal and capitalist policies, the GDP goes up in a way that the graph doesn’t even follow (it’s a straight line at the top of the graph)
200% difficulty should mean something
Anyway, thanks, your game is awesome!
