Maybe you're right and something is a little off. The more I look the more I think that may be the case.
The screenshots do look awesome Daniela! You did a very cool job!

I compared the players' faces and I could be wrong but to me the one here looks smaller than the one over in beta. If that's not it, I'll help you to figure out what's different.

That's a fair opinion, but going wide-screen the schedule page just looks empty when it's constrained to 2 columns. Letting it go left-to-right and splitting the leagues horizontally works for me.

Couldn't agree more. One of the biggest things that needed improving was the scores and schedule screen where you could fit more games on a higher resolution instead of just two columns using one half of the screen and having to scroll down to see the rest


Nice to see this improved.

First OOTP 15 Screenshots!

I like the way the facegens look. To me in that very small sample, there are three very distinct looking faces. I like how Vicente Sandoval has the mouse face going. Never really seen a Facegen look like him before.


I'm sure things will get tweaked as these are only first screens

Looks great!

Personally, I think the pitching rate stats (K/9, BB/9, HR/9) should round to the first decimal like Baseball Reference. It looks better and will save some space on the screen too.

Agreed. It has a bit of a "Windows 8" look to it, which isn't a bad thing. Not to me anyway.

so, it is Sunday, and the sun is actually shining here. That's probably why I am in such a good mood (despite working)... so, here are the first screenshots of OOTP 15 as a little surprise As you can see, the look has changed quite a bit, it's much cleaner and more professional looking IMO. Of course, this is still work in progress!

A few notes about screen resolution:
- The 1st, 5th and 6th screen is in 1360 * 768 (16:9), which is the most used screen resolution world wide at the moment.
- The 2nd, 3rd and 4th screen is in 1440 * 900 (16:10), which is the default resolution the game uses when opened on big desktop monitors.

Some interface tweaks:
- More stats are displayed, taking advantage of the wide screen mode.
- The scouting menu is replaced by a switch.
- The available actions are now put into one single menu, the lower bar from OOTP 14 which carried function buttons / menus is gone. It's all in a single place in all screens now.
- Facegen rendering has been improved (still work in progress).
- The upper background no longer adjust to team colors, but rather the menu buttons and parts of the tab frame.
- League-related screens (see screenshot 6 as an example) have their title appear as a menu when you move the mouse over them (and click, by default), this menu allows you to switch between leagues quickly. Same applies to team screens.
- The game tracks new stats for hitters (K%, BB%, WPA) and pitchers (IRS%, WPA).

OK, how do you like them? I think Daniela did an amazing job.

(1360 * 768)


(1440 * 900)


(1440 * 900)


(1440 * 900)


(1360 * 768)


(1360 * 768)
What determines the color on the profiles primary or secondary? Thanx for this i have wanted something like that since 12.

Is it possible to have team color skins? Black & White for White Sox, Sky blue and white for Blue Jays, Navy Blue for Yankees, etc?

On the scores/schedule screen all of the faces in that example look like they were done in colored pencil or something. none of them look nearly as good as in past versions... just my opinion though. something just looks really off.

Perhaps you are right, but I was talking more of the detailed pictures in the player profile screen. The player pics in the scores screen were never that detailed before anyway

Admittedly, there's some oddity associated with them, but keep in mind the initial post offers up the disclaimer that it's a "work in progress," so I look forward to an improvement. Isn't everything improved, eventually?

And on this topic... Will stats such as RC/27 be added to the "expanded stats" when filtering players?

idk. I ended up editing out that part of my post cause the more I looked the more I didn't think there was much of a difference between these faces and the ones in beta. That being said, you may be right.

Wow, the new style is a big step forward, I absolutely love the new look! Very clean, good looking and sharp.

My only suggestion is for the profile and Batting Stats/Pitching Stats pages. There's a lot of wasted space in the Personal Details and Status boxes. I'd recommend shrinking the horizontal size of the boxes so that we could get even more stats on that page. With that one change, I think it could take another leap forward.

Great work!
