  1. Great work! I was wondering how you make these campaigns? I usually copy the file of an existing campaign and work on it, but it gets too confusing for me and sometimes I end up overriding the original file. Any help?

  2. Hey thanks for the comment and compliment, Dylan.

    Personally I create a duplicate of the campaign year I want in the “Campaign Editor”, and then rename the new duplicate, and start editing that one to my liking.

  3. Thanks for the comment, man!

    Just wondering what you didn’t like about the portraits?

  4. Seems ugly, but others might like it.

    However, this scenario has more candidates for the Dems & Reagan isn’t that powerful, so it would be more fun than the official one.
