NOTES
-You have to change all pocket trait QBs to balanced. Reason is they basically have them disabled from taking off to scramble in too many situations making them do the ridiculous run across LOS to sideline before throwing it away with no defender in front of them.
-Dropped interceptions are the cost of doing business in madden. As frustrating as they might be, the game just doesn't have enough animations to replace the annoyance of seeing guys drop 2-5 a game. It's a visual sacrifice that has to be made in order to get best statistical results possible.
-Penalty variety is unfortunately limited in this game. On offense you can only really manipulate holding, false start and illegal block in the back. On defense its offside, facemask, roughting passer and DPI. IRL there are about 22 different penalties you see called every week and half doesnt even exist in Madden. I like to treat facemask like its also unnecessary roughness. Just have to accept the repetitiveness in order to see desired results of 4-8 a game.
-Autosubs were created with progressive fatigue off (will revisit when I make a franchise mod).

Re: Madden 24 PC Gameplay Mod

This guy needs to be hired by EA Sports!

For us console guys, what would you recommend we do settings-wise to make the CPU-controlled QB’s escape pressure better and play more realistically?

Unfortunately there is not much you can do bc of how the default settings are written. but one thing for sure is make sure no one is pocket trait QB for sure

Re: Madden 24 PC Gameplay Mod

Man imagine if these were the patch notes for the next Madden update. I wish I was a PC gamer to take advantage of this stuff. If there's a franchise overhaul too I might have to switch over.

Re: Madden 24 PC Gameplay Mod

OMG! This is very impressive, almost makes me want to play on PC.

Out of curiosity...with everything that you guys do as far as mods go, it clearly shows what can and needs to be addressed, why can't EA/Tiburon make these changes for consoles?

Re: Madden 24 PC Gameplay Mod

Sabo- loved your gameplay mods on the older Maddens. I've been unable to get that Madden Spark and Mod manager to work at the same time in order to play the mods in 24 but I did have a question about what you can add.

I play a lot of coach mode primarily and wondering if you can (1) Make it so that QB Option plays don't always result in the QB keeping the ball every time and that they sometime pitch it/handoff to RBs? (2) Can you make it so that QB's will scramble sometime during passing plays in coach mode for the user coach? Too often they would just take sacks when obvious yards could be gained on a scramble. I'm specifically referring to User QBs in coach mode as the CPU Opponent QB's will do these two things from time to time...Not a request at all. Just a question..
