Restarting a Hobby

From 1999 until about 2003 I used to run a simleague website. Started out running a BPro 98 league and branched out to having a second BBPro 98 league (run by someone else), an OOTP historical fast sim league (run by me) and a NASCAR league (run by me) all on that site. Then added a basketball league (run by me).

Was about to start up a college BB league when things got crazy and eventually had to call it quits.

Have been thinking about it for a while and would like to start up a league again.

Will be messing around with OOTP 12 and getting used to the online tools but plan on starting up a fictional league.

League Setup (full details to follow):

Leagues: 2
Teams per League: 8

Split season
Innaugural Draft (still debating about how to run the draft)

84 game season (financials and HoF numbers adjusted accordingly)

Minors to include: AAA, AA, A


If anyone is interested please feel free to post your interest in this thread.

Sim schedule would be something like:
Monday - 5 days
Tuesday - 5 days
Wednesday - 5 days
Thursday - 5 days
Friday - 5 days

Post Season would be one day at a time and may be daily.


Should turn a season over in 2 about months.


The only thing that could interfere would be travel for work. That will be a bridge to cross when I get there, however.

Crap, having all sorts of issues trying to upload to my site.

Worked the other day but keeps timing out every day since. Won't start anything until I can be certain that I can upload successfully every time and get the timing down.

Any suggestions?

Got the posting going again but it seems to take forever and there is nothing that gives me a clue on the progress.

Is there a setting that I am missing with the game or is it a mystery when the posting ends?

I am starting to think that using FileZilla may be the better route for uploading.

Plans have changed, they have.

About to announce the league but it has shrunk to become a smaller league.


The major league will be a 12 team league with 2 6 team leagues.

Split season will be used.

96 games per season.

2 levels of minor leagues.

Interleague play.

1st playoff round is a 5 game series; championship is a 7 game series.

Normal awards are used plus one custom Player of the Year award which will be determined by a league-wide vote.

bump, was hoping to grow it a little more tonight but nothing yet. Would like to start getting the league moving sometime within the next week or so but want to at least get to 8 owners (2/3).

Hoping that by next weekend we can have a schedule together for the initial draft and start of the season.
