With @vcczar's approval, I am starting a hands-off, totally all-CPU playthrough of AMPU, beginning with the 2022 midterms. I will not post every minute detail that happens here, but I will post the significant/interesting things, and will give anyone who wants it access to the spread sheet so you can explore the details yourself if that appeals to you. I will of course continue running our main game with all of you, as my top priority. This is just something for me to do while I wait for you guys to act. As for why I'm planning to end in 2072 -- I would be 89 years old, my daughter would be 59, and 50 years was a nice round number. I also assume the entire list of politicians by then will be all randomly generated, but we'll see! Maybe Pete Buttigieg is still hanging around, yelling at the damned kids to get off his White House lawn. ;c) I'll be setting up the spreadsheet over the next few days. My biggest need, I think, is to identify the "significant" current members of the House. As you guys may know, we don't show every single seat in the House, that would be insane. We just identify a certain number of "significant" reps per state -- these are the reps who can have leadership positions, sit on committees, propose bills. So who should I include as being incumbent significant reps heading into the 2022 elections? Current leadership is obvious, including whips, committee chairs, ranking members. And AOC, I guess. But who else? I'm open to your ideas -- any openings that you guys don't list someone for, I'll just go by seniority (longest serving rep from that state). Let me know! (Also, for those who missed the notification - please send me your draft picks for the 1780 draft.) 4 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
