Somehow there is a slight mismtach in coincil members. It says I have 61 members on my city council. However if I count them I have 57.
And I can not click the individual council members to get details on them (name, age, party, personal traits etc) or individual action (like bribing).
Great Expectations lead to Great Disappointments! If you watched the Kalypso videos of gameplay you'd know those council members are merely graphic representations, pretty pictures. They are not meant to be played with. Keeping track of individual politicians over 5 eras is meaningless busywork and I'm glad they didn't muck up the game with too many meaningless details. It's just a representation of the council chamber. You do all politicking through the political parties. Nice and easy and quick to play.
I never played Tropico series but I can see where you hoped UE would be more like Tropico with individuals to interact with. I finally got my game yesterday and enjoyed doing the tutorial, learned a lot about gameplay. I think I prefer dealing with political parties instead of individuals.
