1964 is a mod for the Campaign Trail. It is notable because it is the first known mod for an entirely new election year ever created (predating even NCT)[2] and formerly being included in the main loader.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Both Johnson and Goldwater, are playable however, it is impossible to win as Goldwater in difficulties Normal or higher. The scenario focuses on issues such as the Vietnam War, Social Security, Civil Rights, and John F. Kennedy's assassination.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

The entire concept of modding the game came about via this mod. While others were simply proof of concepts, such as adding different candidates (which became code one editing), 1964 was the first fully fledged mod.

The mod was one of many that was removed after the Tex-Decstar dispute.[3][4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
