Partisan Nation version 1.07 update released
  • Fixes another duplicate politician name bug (Tim Johnson this time) that was causing some strange behavior and possible crashes in saved games. I wrote a script to double check the politician files and there should be no other duplicate names causing problems. The Tim Johnson in Illinois is now Timothy Johnson.
  • Fixes a bug in the saved game code that was saving the next year's election queue in a slightly wrong format. This caused the next year after you loaded a saved game to not have the correct primaries/general elections scheduled.

Partisan Nation version 1.05 update released
  • Fixes a regression from 1.04 that was causing crashes when an election attempted to run after loading a saved game. Accidently caused this when I was trying to figure out the whole two Mike Rogers thing in 1.04. They're still annoying me!

  • Game Balance -- Increased the amount of money you get each day from fundraising
  • Game Balance -- Lowered the time for a bill to work it's way through congress down to 30 days from 60 days

  • Game Balance -- Some more tweaks to politicians' stats
  • Feature -- Added bonuses for Party Leaders, based on office they're holding or running for
  • Improvement -- Switched the Party Leaders over to daily actions, instead of one action every x days, as that was annoying

  • UI -- Changed the rounding on politicians' stats' bars to better reflect the underlying stats.
  • UI -- Added a "P" next to the Democrats or Republicans on the Congress Tab to show which party has the presidency

  • Bug -- Fixed a bug that could cause a crash-to-dekstop or other problems due to their being two "Mike Rogers" in the US House. The one in Michigan is now "Michael Rogers." This one was really annoying to figure out and fix. :P
  • Bug -- Fixed a display bug that would show a state's Org/GR/Camp rating as 0 when it was > 5
  • Bug -- Fixed a display bug that was showing incorrect Campaign spending costs for Democrats after you increased or decreased a state's level
