New Sim Wish List

    It'd be nice to get together a list of things people would like to see in the new sim. Whilst I can't promise they'll be delivered, it's better I ask now whilst I'm building and can incorporate them than try and add them in at the end.

    So - fire away. Anything you can think of no matter how hare-brained or random.

    Wish List Item #1

    Eds to sim the Season 2 final whilst I'm building to breathe a bit of life in here before the start of Season 3.

    Individual player stats would be pretty sweet but probably too hard.
  4. Doog J McDougal

    A form of stats output that represents all positions on the pitch post-match. The only way to know if a forward was actually doing well under the old sim was if they got MoM points. Being able to attribute turnovers, lineout steals etc would be orsm.
  5. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Yes. This is the most tough assignment actually. I should be easily able to do team stats, but to assign a turnover, line-out steal, scrum against the head to an individual will be tough.
  6. Doog J McDougal

    Presumably (although I'm really very ignorant about how sim building works) everyone would contribute a certain amount of points towards the outcome of the event (lets say ruck) defined partly by the likelihood of the event, partly by the player's skills, and partly by a random element. Would it be possible to add each player's culmination of those three things, and then attribute it to the highest total?
  7. Eds E Ames

    I think the most important thing, Heef, is getting an accurate and realistic stats output so that people know how well they did.

    Couple of things from me though:
    - Yellow/Red Cards? Maybe have a list of [repeat] infringements which result in sin binnings and sending offs. Which leads me to my next one...
    - Fights. Everyone seems to love them. :p
    - Cutting lineouts down to 3 or 5 man lines? Perhaps I'm going too far, though...
    - Kickers having to focus on conversion or out-of-hand kicking? Maybe too late now though.
    - Slight, random deviations in rego stats. ie. Player A has exactly the same rego as Player B and exactly the same post rank (impossible I know...), yet have slightly different stats.
  8. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    @ Doog: Effectively, yes. However, it's all subsumed within one formula and whilst one individual contributed more points towards that outcome, if we went on that, it'd always be the same player winning the piece.

    1) Yellow/Red Cards... Hmmm, tricky... As this would necessitate the removal of an individual player from subsequent plays...
    2) Fights. Yeah, easy enough. I can do this with ease. Could be pretty decent as well
    3) Who would choose though?
    4) I have already had to tweak the regos to take account of this. So, this is already in there. People who chose tactical kicking have had that stat boosted, but only place kicking is now a separate stat - so this has effectively been achieved.
    5) Hmmmm... I don't see the point as the regos provide such a variation in skill sets anyway.
  10. Eds E Ames

    1) Understand if it isn't possible, but if it is, it would be awesome.
    2) (Y)
    3) The captain? The CoS (could pick at what different moments the team should switch to shorter lineouts)?
    4) (Y)
    5) Don't worry then.
  11. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Actually, think I might have a way to do #5 easily... I'm guessing you're referring to how Vago was randomly good despite his post rank, and Eddie was randomly crap despite his post rank? Maybe a random factor added or subtracted from the post rank?

    Red/Yellow Cards could be a v2 enhancement. It is needed, but I'd like to get something working first

    Scrums are now working, Lineouts on their way.
  12. Eds E Ames

    Yeah, that's what I mean. I'd much prefer it if post count wasn't directly proportional to ability. Slight anomalies'd be great.

    Fair enough.

  13. Escath LE Schaw

    It wouldn't always be the same player if you put a large random factor into it.

    Of course, it's probably going to be too much work so it's not a huge deal.

    Funny how Eds is making demands while completely ignoring Heef's first item on the wish list. WAC
  14. Eds E Ames

    Funny how you've assumed I've ignored it whilst I've actually been doing my all to get the old sim back onto my new laptop without paying the extra £30. I didn't say anything as I didn't get anyone's hopes up and then shatter them, because I am definately not shelling out again for it. I was even willing to completely re-do all the necessary players and all of the necessary teams for the final just to get it done. Oh, and they're not demands at all. They're suggestions which Heef has specifically asked for FFS. I've even specifically noted that some of them might be too much work so not worth it.

    WAC yourself. Cunt.

    Eds out of tampax? Period blood all over that post
  16. Escath LE Schaw

    Eds needs to take a chill pill.
  17. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    To be fair, Eskie, Eds' post was exactly what I was looking for. Ideas like that are ideal. Unlike Crabb, I am after a wish list of sorts.

    However, this is the most input I've had from Eds on the sim in months... :ninja:

    Pretty much what everyone has said. Stats stats and stats.

    GAGFC. Your list of simming disasters grows by the hour, or need I remind you of the farcical CW Forum World Cup which would be completed before the end of the real world cup?
