Got a chance to play today and I'm loving it! I simmed the first year (I always do) and played about 8 months of the second year. I don't think I have gotten far enough in to give you too much feedback other than so far, it's awesome.
I did look over some things in the editorial suite and I got some questions.
How come some guys are debuting with pretty big reputations?
Sho Kitabatake comes into the game world with 75 rep. Not sure if this is intentional or not.
Because the promotions start of with popularity and need some stars to help keep that popularity. The UFC wasn't limited to just Colorado when they started so I wanted to mimic that with GAMMA. PRIDE was HUGE in Japan when they started so I'm trying to mimic that a bit as well with ALPHA-1. ISL is kind of a Pancrase/Shooto hybrid and some big name fighters started out in those promtions as well so some were well known when they hit the bigger promotions.
Why so little crossover stars? You have it set to low across all eras except "beginning-1996" which is set to normal.
I basically followed what Adam had set up with the default data. I figured he knew how the game would handle that better than I.
You have most of the regions set with everything at 0, which makes perfect sense considering it's the beginning of mma, but does that change on it's own over time? (I don't know too much about how that works lol)
They are supposed to...
I love that you got narratives in there, but no story?
It's not a big deal, but if it is suppose to be the early stages of mma, something like a promotion changing the rules would be pretty big news on an mma specific site like Blurcat.
There are stories to go with some of the narratives. If several rule changes take effect on one day then there is only one story to cover all of them.
These are obviously things that anyone can "tweak" to their liking, I was just wondering why you made certain decisions.
The mod is awesome and watching the game world develop this way makes it that much more interesting.
Great mod and thanks a ton for sharing
