Default Real World Chronicles Continued [Modern Day Real World Mod]



Initial Release: November 2018

Quote:
INITIAL RELEASE GOALS

- Updated Match Type ratios for every company to reflect real-life match types
- Updated Popularity settings for every company based on attendance/viewership
- Rescaling of ratings for all workers so they fit expected distribution similar to CVerse16x to enhance playability
- Updated movesets for workers in select companies
- Updated company rosters
- Updated Title/Tournament changes
- Add/remove a few companies and workers (TBD)

WHAT THIS MOD IS

This is the official continuation of Fleisch's excellent "Real World Chronicles" current day mod. Fleisch will be releasing his final data update in August 2018, at which point I will be taking over the updating of his Real World Chronicles mod.

I would be remiss if I didn't give a gigantic thank you to Fleisch for the work he has put into this mod over the last 5 years. This game would not move near as many copies and give us all the hours of enjoyment it does without his work. I am happy that Dr_Avalanche and I were able to assist when we could in the later stages, but the basis of this mod is and always will be a testament to the effort Fleisch put in. I hope I speak on behalf of the community when I say THANK YOU!

Thank you for entrusting me with continuing your efforts and I hope to do you proud!

(Hopefully I don't screw it up too bad)
Quote:
WHAT THIS MOD IS NOT

This is not a monthly release mod - This mod will continue in the Fleisch tradition of releasing every three months so that I can take some "bigger" swings on global updates to the mod.
This mod will not have every worker/company in existence - This mod will stick to ~2500 workers and ~60 companies so it stays performant and limits the amount of data to update each release.

For those looking for a monthly-release + every company mod, TheWho87 has a great monthly released mod here.
Quote:
WHERE THIS MOD IS GOING

Two words: Data Driven

Going forward, this mod will be heavily modeled after DerekB's CVerse16x data in terms of worker stats and (to a lesser degree) popularity. This is done to ensure long-term playability of the mod and strike a fine line between overrating/underrating workers.

The idea here is to have a mod that "self-adjusts" based on what happens in real life as much as possible. There are ~2500 workers and ~60 promotions to update each release so I am looking to automate as much of the work as I can. I'm a web developer/data analyst by trade, so anything that I can automate or give me a sanity check on when ratings get out of whack should help keep the mod fresh for each update.

Worker stats will be modeled after how the game generates ratings and improvements for workers. You should see veterans with (in general) higher performance stats, rookies with lower respect ratings, etc... Again, the idea here is to give the game long-term playability.

I will post more specifically on this topic as we get closer to a first release.

You will likely see a little more Japanese/Joshi focus as well, as I'm a puro/joshi fan at heart (+ WWE).
Quote:
COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

Polite, constructive feedback is welcome and appreciated. We have a great community on here and I am by no means the be-all-end-all expert on all-things wrestling. I'm happy to explain anything I can and will heavily incorporate community feedback into each release.

Feedback that is rude or not specific will be ignored. Saying "why is worker x so low? Drrrrrrrrrrrr" is not helpful in any way. Please be as specific as possible when reporting things you see as amiss in the mod.

Default Road To Initial Release - Journal 1 - Respect

So, as we draw closer to release, I will be posting these journal entries to give you all some insight into the "how/why" of worker ratings in the mod. Think of these as a deep-dive/expansion of Derek_B's excellent mod making guide he posted in the 2013 forum.

Anyway, on to Journal Entry #1 - Respect!



Respect

Quote:
The respect rating plays a direct role in how much the worker will ask for in contract negotiations (in addition to their popularity and if a figurehead). It also determines if a worker is considered a Young Lion or not, which plays a huge role in Japanese companies.

A Young Lion loses their YL status at D- respect (~35 rating). After leaving YL status a worker won't upset fans if they start to get pinfall victories.

Respect goes up 0.4 for every show worked when a worker has less than 25 respect (and ALWAYS starts at 0 for new workers who haven't worked a match).

It then goes up 0.3 for every show from 25 respect on until it reaches 53. It's capped at 53 and can only be improved beyond that with "good performances at important shows" (which I haven't quite cracked how the game translates).

You need ~70 matches to reach 25 respect and ~170 to hit the "soft cap" of 53.

When translating to a mod, remember the game does not "count" house show matches as actual ones for game stats. So, if you are creating someone from WWE, make sure you aren't counting house shows as "matches worked".

The scale this mod will be using is below (slightly adjusted for the additional 4 weeks real world workers get compared to in-game).

This sounds tremendous! Best of luck to you. Thanks Fleisch for all the years of hard work and for choosing a great person to whom you've passed off the reins!

Good luck man!
Also, one thing that's bothered me about these: Could you include WCPW/Defiant Wrestling in the mod? (Perhaps as an Closed promotion for those who don't really care) I'd love to play them tbh considering I'm a huge What Culture fan. Can't wait to play your continuation in November!

The companies that will be added/removed (if any) will be based on attendance and viewership numbers that I am pulling from a few different sources. The idea is to go through the current list of companies and confirm they are active and well-attended/viewed then make a call from there as to which ones to add/remove (as I want to keep the mod ~60 companies for performance purposes).

There are 4-5 Japanese companies I have my eye on already for potential additions. I'll make sure to take a look at Defiant when it comes that time as well.

As far as adding them as a deleted company, I'll likely not do that as it will bloat the data a bit. I would however be happy to work out what promotion settings would be for them if you want to add them to your own game world (if they aren't added here).

Surely most of the last decade is the answer to that question?

Seriously I assume it's in and just missed on the list. Lets not beat up poor old southside before he's even released any data. Save that for his first release when we can all jump on him and say how he's screwed up!

Seriously Southside (and the people helping out) your efforts are very much appreciated.

Yeah, I just copy/pasted Fleisch's company list as a placeholder for now. I will be going through it in more detail at a future date.
