  2. I'm actually inclined to agree as well.
  3. I tend to agree with Barclay. I definitely don't mind a system where people can pick a couple of advantages to help define their character (and maybe a flaw too!), and I definitely would like to have attributes (positive, neg, and mixed) that can be "earned" based on IC decisions on the part of players. I didn't find attribute points particularly useful, however, during the last couple of rounds of GPS, personally.
  4. Hey, we are currently in between rounds. Will be sure to let you know when the time comes for the next reset!
  5. I think we're on the same page here, just phrased a different way. In the list above, we would open up specific states at specific times to ensure the position is still prestigious.

  7. Is there any reason why we can't use some real demographic identifiers rather than political ideologies? Things like gender, socio-economic status, race, etc.? This is, in some ways, easier to ascertain because the information is already collected through census information.
  8. I would rather completely replace attributes, or else get rid of it. If we replace it with a traits system, I'm ok with that. But the attributes system seems to complicate things without really adding a significant amount to the actual game play, imo.
  9. I have a lot of ideas for elections which I will turn into a document and then post here soon. Basically, making the mechanics force players to make choices in their strategy: ground game vs air game; targeted or wide; base or marginal. These grand-level strategic choices will inform their decisions as they go throughout the election. Results will be based off of a combination of coherent strategy and, crucially, execution.
  10. I think we can cut down on the number of Senate seats significantly. If they're meant to be for players who are "a cut above" and significantly more prestigious, then it should really be a smaller portion of the overall player base who get there. Furthermore, it is imperative that every Senate race has a Republican and a Democrat challenging for it. To that end, I propose that we actually go to 9 Senate seats, 3 every 2 years. These seats would represent one state only (despite my fondness of regions, I know they aren't super popular), and we would select the states for balance and competitive

  13. To ensure that we're fully ready to offer a groundbreaking govsim experience next round, we will be delaying the opening of the next round until summer 2021. Check back here for further updates. Thank you for your understanding.
  14. There has to be some way to keep those archives. I can probably help financially or technically. I would just hate to lose them.
  15. Divided U.S.: @Bluto Each player will start out with absolutely zero resources that once belonged to the United States i.e. Military ships, planes, equipment, etc. military bases in states no longer in the United States have been closed and each nation has a debt of 5 billion U.S. dollars for each former U.S. state they now own. When you register a nation you will along with giving a name to your country will be required to submit a budget (as done by percentage) here is what the U.S. budget looked like, by percentage in a pie chart for individual state budgets please look that up yourse
  16. PGA Tour Minigame: @Jewell Prior to the start of the 1960 PGA Tour, there will be two events played: the 1959 Azalea Open, and the 1959 Masters. Your golfer may play at the Azalea Open, the Masters, both, or neither. Bear in mind that the Azalea Open may tire your golfer out before a big tournament like the Masters, and it has lower prestige, but it is a much safer bet to play in the Azalea Open than the Masters, especially due to the fairly high chances of missing the cut at the Masters, and the fairly high chances of placing very well at the Azalea Open. Please contact me prior to th
  17. College Football Playoffs Minigame: @TexAgRepublican Bruce suggested to me that I put together a sports minigame. So what I decided to do was use a website called whatifsports.com for us to simulate a hypothetical 16 team playoff in 2016 (the latest set of teams available on the website). This is what I sent to Bruce via PM: Have you ever seen this website? https://www.whatifsports.com/ncaafb/ I've played around with it in the past. It simulates hypothetical matchups for many different sports. For college football, you can set your lineup along with your offensive str

  21. VIP Program: Are you enjoying Capitol Hill? This game will always remain free to play, but there are undeniable expenses that come with running a game like this. In an effort to offset these expenses, bring in new players through advertising, and reward the game's admin team, we're now launching the VIP program! By donating any amount, you'll be rewarded with a month of great perks to get the most out of the game. It's important to note that these perks are specifically designed to improve the OOC aspects of the game and provide more IC opportunities, but they don't give your character a
