A couple of quick suggestions for better User experience:
In the new Policy View use the search field to look for effects of policies. For example when you type “environment” show all policies that have a direct impact on the environment.
-> This avoids tediously combing through all of them when you are trying to address a specific issue.
Also in Policy View make policies sortable by introduction costs (instead of alphabetical).
-> Simply a bit more relevant than the first letter.
In the hire new minister window, add some filters for desired job and/or demographic group. I might look for a new capitalist or self-employed transport ministers.
-> Its currently annoying to always cross reference the two columns that we currently have.
In the main view under Icon Controls add a filter for policies that could be changed with the current political capital or alternative scale the size of the bubble with the costs needed to make a (small) change to the policy.
-> This helps to identify which of the 40 or so active policies could be nudged a little more easily. It is similar to what we already have with new policies.
Thank you for your consideration of these points.
