Enjoyment, but simply.

I've played last several year's of OOTP (and a couple of leagues), but it always end's up for me being overwhelmed by all the choices, trying to find screen's for choices and etc. Now I know this game is for the hardcore, but really would like to enjoy the game, without(!) all the intricacies of minor leagues by the gazzalion; draft's without knowledge; and a billion other small details that the hardcore love. But even tho' I love looking at statistics, I'm more of a 'manager' type, not the GM type. So I'd rather enjoy on-field choices with a slight sprinkling of GM choices to do obvious trades and promotions. But none of the financial stuff give and take etc.


So, can there be something put in the manual on what things can be turned off for a 'simpler' way to enjoy OOTP? And maybe a 'tree of choices' that can be made available to print-out, or have sitting on your desktop to see the flow of things and an easier way to find them?


Well that is my lament. I'm sure I'm in the very small minority here. I do love what Markus and crew have done and want to support them for such a well done job (and with iOOTP), but just(!) not all of it


Thank you.

Here are a few things I can think of that might make the game easier.

Use reserve clause instead of free agency.
Turn off secondary rosters
Turn financials off altogether

If playing historical, use real transactions. No financials when playing this way.

Turn off minor leagues as well.

According to OOTP itself, OOTP MLB play (modern and historical) outnumbers OOTP fictional play three to one.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

If you turn off those options when starting a new game, can you turn them back on? I was thinking of starting a 1970's game and the ability to add those options would make the game a better fit historically.

Thanks!
