Re: Classic Teams - Capa

I downloaded you rosters, nice work. I have to say I only glanced over them and your off to a running start. Are you using pro reference site? Just curious.

Constructive critique, if you don't mind? Saw a few errant numbers on players, not many, and also was wondering how extensive your plan is on editing equipment. My guess is that you're trying to get the guys named and where they belong then polish equipment and ratings. Most 70s guys need long sleeves (not arm sleeves) and classic shoes imo for better effect. Same for helmet and facemasks. I do realize long sleeves do create a glitch with arm stripes for many jerseys, but I still play my classic steelers in their old block number unis because overall, still better than seeing a Jack Lambert wearing a small-numbered 58, for example. Some old helmet facemasks will NOT save unless that is the LAST item you edit on a player before saving.

What is your approach with ratings in terms of whole-team overview? I personally don't want players overpowered, and over powered teams that are unwarranted. Even HOFers had bad traits in some areas. This of course is subjective to the nth degree.

Hope you don't mind me spouting off, as I really do appreciate what you are trying to undertake. Would sure be nice to have an editor, eh? Keep up the good work!

Re: Classic Teams - Capa

Thanks for the feedback. No problem on any critiques.

I do use the pro football reference site for info. Do you remember what players had wrong numbers? I did have to fill in a few player slots with fictitious players in order to satisfy EA position requirements...especially for the older teams. But I rated those guys extremely low so hopefully they don't get on the field at all.

As far as sleeves go, I pretty much went with the Standard sleeve and it is one of those areas that I can tweak afterwards. To be honest, I have been doing this for so long and this must be the 10th or 12th time I have created these teams for various games and I get burned out pretty quickly now. I find myself resenting the fact that I (we) have to do this at all, when all they need to implement is a carry over feature year to year...so simple...just fields in a db really. But they won't. Not because they can't. But because they choose not to. So, in editing I find myself not as diligent as I used to be.

Ratings - yeah...this is a tough one. I try to rate the HOF and elite players pretty high in most areas. I do not do the 99 across the board thing if I can help it. I try to vary ratings in different areas because as you said, even Tony Dorsett was not good at everything. Sometimes I can't get the overall rating to budge for a player from 99 no matter what I seem to change without making that trait unrealistic for that player (especially true with FBs).

The truth is for the most part it is a guessing game for many of the ratings. I mean, who can quantify pass and run blocking footwork? Stuff like that...and even some of the basic ratings unless you have an intimate knowledge of the player themselves. Some are no brainers like Payton, Unitas, Namath, etc. But the lesser known players...well...we do our best.

I do not have a method or any science to it. I go mostly on what I remember or have seen of the players. I like to make the older teams because these are the ones I am most familiar with (1960's and 1970's). So I go from memory or film clips on many of those guys.

Truth be known? I am about 70% vested in this at this point. I used to be a maniac back in the 2K5 days...but am older now and lose patience a lot more easily! LOL.

But I do appreciate stuff you find that think can be tweaked to make the set better!

Re: Classic Teams - Capa

I know the Cowboys backwards and forwards so I will look at them again. I know Danny White you had at #10, and he's #11. Yeah, I'm burned out also, and want to get to a point where I can play some regular games with 4-5 classic teams instead of editing all the time. It's a time killer, but labor of fun.

Yeah...I created 2 Whites since EA will not let you give a player 2 positions. The punter White has #10 and the QB White has #11.

Re: Classic Teams - Capa

I haven't had an opportunity to down load yet....is it the 1994 niners or the 1984 niners. First post says '84, but the other one says 1994. I love both, just wondering which one.

I made the 94 49ers in this set. I will update the set later on to include the 89 49ers...
