Default Real World 1997 version 2

Something I have been doing is editing WECNeverDie’s 1997 Real World Mod. I have messaged him asking if it’s ok to mod and release, but sadly without reply.

It was already a good mod, but what I’ve tried to do is refine it, make it a bit more accurate. I have borrowed data heavily from a couple of other Mods. I have tried to contact the Mod owners without success but will add credit where it is due.

What have I done
I have added every event I can find a record of dating back to 1984.
For each event I have added in the fight card and results, over a thousand fight records currently giving an accurate history for every fighter in the game.
Added more companies for the start (currently up to 38 in total) and over the course of the next few years. I plan to add more, again others opinions are welcome.
Added some more fighters - most of these were imported from older Mods so need checking for accuracy.
Added a complete tournament history.


What I need to do
Go through each fighter and check each fighters start date as some are set wrong. Although I believe this was to give some fighters a history before they started. By adding more companies at the start I hope we’ll see fighters starting low before going on to the bigger companies.
Also need to check each fighters personal details, momentum, rankings, popularity.

Decisions to make
I’m tempted to set every fighter who is set to debut after Jan 1997 to have a potential of zero. Therefore it is calculated when they are generated. This means that every game will be different, and add some unpredictability which I think is a good thing. I don’t want to end up with George St Pierre dominating every save I have, sometimes it would be nice to see him end up as a journeyman.

How am I going to calculate popularity and rankings.

Help required
I have no Picture Pack for this mod. I’d suggest using WEC’s picture pack as that will be a good setting point. What I think would be good is for someone or a group of people to create a definitive picture pack for Real World settings. Starting from 93 onwards. That way it could work with all real world Mods in the future. The TEW community has a couple of large picture packs along these lines. I am not the person to do this, but if someone were to create one I would happily use it.

Some fighters need creating, and I have no knowledge of how to set a balanced fighter up. Any help/suggestions are welcome. I have a list and am happy to provide some details to people as a base point.

I am not creating a skin either, no time or knowledge to do that. Other people are more than welcome to do it instead.

Other Notes
I have nearly finished adding the fight histories, just 40 plus Shooto events and 6 Brazilian Vale Tudo to go I think. But then comes the monotonous task of checking each character.

I will probably be asking for help and opinions on various things over the next few weeks. I will probably want some people to try it out as well at some point.

I am not taking away anything from WEC. He created a killer mod, and people are free to use it (I do). I’m just picky about fighter histories and got carried away, so decided to update a lot of it.

I will update this regularly, but work is slow as I have two kids, a full time job, Football Manager 2019 , and Red Dead two about to be released.

If WEC sees this and wants to collaborate then I am more than happy to do so.

Release Date - End of Jan (currently)

Cheers. That should explain it.

Update as it stands so far.

Things I am querying or to do
1. Should I remove Future Inductees to Hall of Fame?
2. Some of the Pre-Game Results were entered wrong so while there will be between 1200 and 1300 if not more, I probaby have to re-enter 100 or so (Vale Tudo Japan, Brazilian Vale Tudo, Icon Sport, IFC & Shooto)

Rankings have been entered, and I am working out a system for Name Value so it is consistent across the board and life like.

I’m also thinking that when this completed, maybe jumping a year or two ahead or a year too before too give players more choice.

I wouldn't sit and wait for release. The game crashed and now won't load, before that any saves related to it wouldn't load. Therefore I am unable to do anything with it currently. Hopefully Adam will be able to sort the problem out.

To be honest the original 1997 Mod is more than playable, I just wanted to expand it, then use it as a base for a couple of other Mods..

Good News. Where my copy of the game had broken, Adam has told me how to resolve it, so I plan on doing some more over the weekend. I hope to have the Fight Results completed soon and then I can start looking at the fighters specifically.

Update

I have added another 15 Fighters, 3 more shows, approximately 150 more fight results, although I did have to redo some as well. Also found a couple more Tournament wins to add in.

I have been thinking that because WEC had already done 1997, is it worth me looking at 1998 instead? I could probably do 98 and 99 as 98 would be a build on top of 1997 and then 99 would be a build on on top of 1998.

If I could work out how to do a poll, I would put it out there. Potentially i could also go back to 1996 instead?
