Yeah, I do think OOTP needs more, "everyone doubted us and said we couldn't do it"

I guess no-hitters are listed in multiple ways, because when you see a list of pitchers who threw a no-hitter, nobody gets credit for pitching part of one.

Right -- I was just bummed b/c league history didn't (and apparently doesn't) record combined no-hitters as a no-hitter at all. It would be cool if it did, and would be cool if "Pitched 2.2 innings of no-hitter against Minnesota Twins on June 4, 2014" showed up in individual player history under "Achievements"... one can always dream.


Gotta stay focused. Gotta stay positive.

Or simply combined shut-outs. It's pretty common practice to hear these mentioned. Someday, I'm sure.

15ish. 3D Graphics (This is important and looking forward to it but it's a low priority...to me)
While I have no comments on #'s 4, 5, and 6 (because I don't use those), this is a pretty good list. My number 4 would be adding some of postseason historical module to OOTP15. As it is, other than who beat who in how many games, there's not much to be found in OOTP re prior postseasons.

I'd also add as a sub-component of both #'s 2 and 3: Better AI when it comes to end-of-season and postseason. For example, I'm tired of seeing aces & other top pitchers start meaningless end-of-regular-season games and thus be unavailable for games 1 & 2 of the playoffs.

My #5 would be to implement semi-realistic playoff scheduling, as opposed to the completely unrealistic cookie-cutter schedules that OOTP comes up with.

Defintiely would like to see more post season history kept and using the ace in the last game of the season with a 20 game lead totally blows my mind. I was definitely including that in roster management. And ,yeah, scheduling would be right about there for me too.

Now for the segway...I think if there were more playoff newspaper articles at least we could archive those and at least have something to go back to.

Oh by the way...that wasn't my list of priorities. That is The Wolf's new list of priorities.

I think the Newspaper is #1 priority simply because it's the easiest fix.

It's trigger programming essentially

I have other priorities mainly managerial and player strategies (forcing a start a SP or MR does NOT work when you are Commish and the team is AI) actually working but that has been broken since implementation, so...I am not looking at positive results there.

They're not going to fix it. I now regret preordering.

Because league news are very time-consuming to do.

Anyway, I am still about to spend time in this area for OOTP 15, so probably some of the stuff posted here will be added. However, this does not apply to game recaps of any kind, as this is incredibly complex and something for a future version.

Game recaps would be a "nice to have" I think just some more news stories in general
