Sim Update III - It's done!

Okay, the owner issue is resolved. Everyone, welcome back Nate Wooley, original owner of the now-Mepkin Abbey Monks!

Game date is 10/20/2031. We are about two sims from the arbitration hearing and three or so from free agency.

The next sim will be on Saturday night, 4/1.

Sim Update II

Sorry, folks, but we are still delayed by an owner issue. I'm hoping it'll resolve itself in the morning, and if so, I'll run the sim then. Otherwise, I will run it on Saturday night.

While we're waiting, what does everyone think about upgrading to OOTP 19? I'm in favor, if only for the "Very Low" injury setting. It also seems like the rating system is upgraded, and hopefully more realistic.

That's the latest. More on Saturday, if not sooner.

Sim Update

Apologies for the lack of sim, folks, but we have a situation with an owner that caused the delay.

The first sim of the offseason will be tomorrow, Thursday night, with the following sims on Saturday and Monday nights.

Welcome To The Offseason!

Game Date:  Oct 13 2031

Welcome to the off-season!

A few notes...

First order of business is to check your inboxes.  Those of you who have players who have team options for next season will need to decide now whether or not to exercise those options.

Next order of business - Michael and I have been considering upgrading to OOTP 19.  Feel free to check out the new version at OOTP Developments and let us know what you think.

Also, as a note, I know that the revenue amounts need to be adjusted to the formula that we adopted a few seasons ago.  I have not yet had a chance to plug the numbers in -- hopefully I'll do that tomorrow and have it updated in the game.

Next sim:  Tuesday night.
