an option where we can chose if our issues affect civil rights, economy, or political freedoms
it would help me to improve my civil rights rating
Certain issues affect certain aspects. If you could choose how it affected it, what would be the point? Not to mention that would require a bit of coding, and the mods are already booked.
It would be pointless then, to have issues at all. you would set your civil rights/economy/political freedom and that would be that. Be patient, you'll get some issues to deal with that.
Just like in a real country you can't choose what bills you get. You have to wait for the right one to come. :x
