RE: What do you dislike in Ars Regendi?

Well, the game is fun, but it placed too much importances in economics and the happiness of citizens. I think it would be more exciting if there are also importances stressed in maintaining national integrity (state security), the patriotism and obedience of the citizens to their rulers as well as having an option to wage wars whether it is justifiable or not. The game is also a bit slow for my taste. The fact that I can only commit some actions before being forced to wait the whole day is pretty bore-inducing.

RE: What do you dislike in Ars Regendi?

Thanks for the encouragement and replies! I'll have an eye out on those comprehensive schools then, thanks.

About yastraband's suggestion, let’s give it a try:

"Propping up higher education offer.

For some years to this date, it has been argued by people from different social strata, unemployed, academics, businessmen and political figures as well, that the offer Nation XYZland has in terms of higher education courses/studies needs to be readjusted.

1. "...and we need to do it immediately! This country has too many unemployed young people who were lured into the socio-humanistic studies simply because there were vacancies. Have you seen the numbers lately? How many lawyers are out of a job, working as cashiers? Or how many of these graduates have also migrated?! Look at this number. Do we really need all these vacancies every year in "Specialization in Arcanii Literature"? Last year, there was 1 student attending these classes, and she was there because she ran away from mathematics, she said. And we all know who has to pay the teacher’s salaries as well as installations and materials! Tax payers money can no longer be wasted like this. I propose immediate works to restructure offer on Public Universities with focus on enhancing Science, Technology and Health. Some graduations will have a lot less vacancies and others have to be extinct, but we will let those who are currently studying choose if they want to change to better employment prospects or stay where they are and face future unemployment." And this concluded the speech of shadow minister for education at the National Assembly (aka Senate or House of Commons or Parliament).

Explain: In my opinion this is the rich country’s solution, it will be expensive. In the medium/long term people happiness will increase because they will have better prospects of good jobs after graduating. Maybe decrease civil rights a little in the short term, because some choices will be limited. Popularity will increase and power decrease, both because people (specially those abstentionist voters) will like to see opening to a proposal from opposition politicians, which is supported by prominent social figures. Regarding economy lets give it 4 years to be concluded (public sector is a bit inefficient) and 3-4 more years for people to graduate. Then, after these 7-8 years, we can see the first increase in gross domestic product and personal income. Please take under consideration that this could have a powerful effect on reducing unemployment in the medium/long term.


2. A well known successful businessman from XYZland Belmiroti Azevedos says: "Our corporation Soniacom is known in our country and abroad not only for our commitment to our clients but also for our investment in society. Unfortunately we have our hands tied at the moment because of legislation and cannot start a project for a new School of Technological Specialization. Like a few other companies in XYZland we have a diversified field of operation and, due to our strategy of development focusing on exports rather than internationalisation, we would profit from creating specific courses for:
a) New students who would have to commit in working with us for a contractual number of years (thus combating youth unemployment). Of course they could leave at any time, but would have to repay our investment in their education, as happens with Air-Force pilots trained by the state. In any case, they would be in the possession of a good and up-to-date tool that would catapult them into well-paid jobs, even abroad.
b) For knowledge recycling of our older workers, thus giving them the tools to stay employed for longer avoiding aged unemployment.
All we ask for is a change in legislation and a one-off public investment on infrastructure. We already have world-renowned professionals and academics willing to join our "future" school and educational project.

Explain: This would be an average solution for a rich country and good for a developing country or smaller nations with weaker economies, because most of the financial effort will fall on the private sector. It makes sense that the effects be the same as in the previous case but dimmer/lower (except for civil rights, nothing should happen here). As for the timings, being the private sector more efficient and people having a more precise/directed motivation (studying towards employment) I would make it 3+3 years for the first effects to show up.


3. Nobel prize winner for literature Joseph Saramagoy says: "People are entitled to choose whatever Higher-Education specialization they want. This is paramount for one's personal development, happiness and ultimately for the good of society. A person's development cannot be instrumentalised for the benefit of corporations! If people want to become philosophers, then they should be able to. Higher education is too expensive nowadays; if any change has to be made it is to increase subsidizing for people who want to study.

Explain: This is THAT option which will hinder a developed and rich country and it will be bad for a weaker/smaller economy. Needless to say that expenses in education will increase severely but there will also be a high level of inefficiency on the use of this money.
In the short term happiness will increase but when people realize they have made some bad choices for their education it will start do decrease significantly, compared to the increase. Civil rights can go up as well as popularity.


4. Jonnas Brighton, a young political activist of the Humanist Party (with no seats in Senate) who has worked in several private companies thanks to his wealthy father's influence, says with pride: "I've graduated in philosophy while I was employed! And made many friends at work and outside, too. I paid for my house and my studies, with only limited assistance from my family... aham... It was very good for me, now I am more intelligent. No need for subsidizing, though. People should choose what they want to study of course, but we can pay for it. I did! Now excuse me, my boss is calling me because someone wrote a dissertation about Karl Popper’s views on capitalism, on the Quarterly Profits Report...

Explain: This is the typical comic relief option that I like to see in some tasks. In practice everything remains the same. No restructuring, no subsidizing. I dedicate this one to a friend I made at a past job, who really graduated in philosophy and would pester everybody everyday with philosophy and literal translations of English songs lyrics: João Brighton Wink I bet you play this game too.

RE: What do you dislike in Ars Regendi?

For me, the tasks system can be an area of real frustration.

Yesterday, for example, I opted to enable the courts/ISPs to restrict internet access to those diagnosed with internet addiction and at the request of parents. I fundamentally believe in a free internet, but in extreme cases it can prove detrimental to the well-being of those with addiction issues (Premium accounts they cannot afford, sacrificing other aspects of their life) etc..

Today, I log in to find that apparantly I'm also censoring the internet. This was not the intention of the choice nor was this consequence expressed within the context of the selection made.

Mandatory membership of worker's unions somehow degrades workers right. Perhaps there is a reasonable explanation for this, but it was not made and left me feeling that perhaps somebody's personal politics has influenced the outcome of that choice. I realise this runs both way, and as someone who believes in worker's representation I am inclined to assume a net positive end result - however I fail to see how collective negoatation could realistically result in a drop in wages and conditions. If anything, it could be perceived to cripple the state with frequent industrial action. it is not like the decision could not have some drawbacks, but this drawback seems inappropriate.

RE: What do you dislike in Ars Regendi?

A-R Administrators:

I know that this would be difficult to simulate, but it would be nice if the states within worlds would be more influenced by other states within that world. For example, rather than having tasks prompted by the actions of fictitious states, it would be nice if tasks reflected the actions of actual states in that world.

Cheers,

-Jay

That is why I acknowledged, "I know that this would be difficult to simulate."

People who are not actively playing a state, and some who never have, can post in the forum.

That's why you have trolls
