Hello,

I’ve been playing with the modding bits and pieces to see what can be done and to drum up some ideas for myself and (for the moment anyway) I’m wondering if someone could enlighten me about group size changes.

For example policy effect liberal_freq,0+(0.05*x) would obviously lead to an increase in Liberal when the policy is set at higher settings. If the policy was introduced at 100% would the Liberal voter group increase by 5% total - if it was 23% of the population would it rise to 28%?

If the group was at 0% would is still grow?

If the policy is then cancelled would the group size revert back to it’s original level?

The area I am more interested it is to do with influences, those above are really just to fix some of the basics.

Now, I believe Liberals cannot be Conservatives and vise-versa, at least this is the impression I get from VoterTypes.csv and comments elsewhere on the forum. Based on that if I have 50% Liberals and 50% Conversatives in my population and the same size modifier above is applied what happens?

55% Liberal & 45% Conversative?

Or some sort of calculated average?

And what about if Conversatives_freq was then increased? Would this “push back” the liberal numbers again - and by the same amount?

I do like to start off with lots of questions!

Sorry about that.
