as REAL as IT gets (FINAL)

I am LOCKING these in!!!

I am of course more then willing to give advice on minor tweaks but I have to say I am thrilled with these right now! COMPETITIVE is how I describe these... some days your the windshield and other days your the bug!

I wanted player ratings to matter as well as quirks. BUT more then that I wanted the ability to lose... I know this sounds NUTS but no team wins 162 games...

These are in the vault under "as REAL as IT gets (FINAL)!!!" or JynxdaJester

SLIDERS

***I have tried Dynamic difficulty with these and DO NOT recommend unless you can lock no higher then All-Star+ in on both***

Human Contact- 3

Human Power- 5 (ANY higher and the HR/9 is chaos.)

Human Timing- 2

Human Foul Frequency- 3

Human Solid Hits- 2

Human Starter Stamina- 9 (This is set to give starters the ability to pitch a CG if they are pitching well enough)

Human Reliever Stamina- 5

Human Pitch Control- 8

Human Pitcher Consistency- 4

CPU Contact- 3

CPU Power- 5 (Same as human reason)

CPU Timing- 2

CPU Foul Frequency- 3

CPU Solid Hits- 2

CPU Starter Stamina- 9 (Same as human reason)

CPU Reliever Stamina- 5

CPU Pitcher Control- 8

CPU Pitcher Consistency- 4

CPU Strike Frequency- 2 (Needs to be here to allow the CPU to paint corners and also allows the user to work the count for a walk IF desired. This DOES NOT mean you will walk 10 times a game or never strikeout)

CPU Manager Hook- 4 (Any higher and there's no AI leash for poor performance)

CPU Pickoffs- 5

Fastball Pitch Speed 6 (There has to be a difference in velo that the game doesn't provide)

Offspeed Pitch Speed 5

Fielding Errors Infield- 5

Fielding Errors Outfield- 3

Throwing Errors Infield- 2

Throwing Errors Outfield- 4

Fielder Run Speed- 3 (Allows for the +speed players to get to balls and the slower players DO NOT)

Fielder Reaction- 6

Fielder Arm Strength Infield- 3 (Explained in base runner speed)

Fielder Arm Strength Outfield- 6 (Explained in base runner speed. Also gives the OF a "chance" to gun down a runner heading to the plate)

Baserunner Speed- 6 (They are fast enough to stretch gappers into extra bases but keep plays close when used with outfield arm strength. This also doesn't allow for turtles to beat out coppers and slow rollers)

Baserunner Steal Ability- 4

Baserunner Steal Frequency- 8 (Allows for +speed players to attempt to stretch hits into extra bases and attempted steals rise depending on situations)

Wind- 6 (Allows the ball to carry or hit that imaginary force field)

Injury Frequency- 10 (Spring training) 5 (Season)

Trade Frequency- 0 (For the season. This is because I got the game late and I use the "trade deadline" rosters of RidinRosters. NO NEED for trading IMO for this yr. I want close to accurate rosters at least until the off-season) 7 (For offseason but may change by the time I get there)

Re: as REAL as IT gets (FINAL)

Curious why you say these sliders dont work with Directional hitting?

As far as I know, doesnt matter what hitting style you use, sliders work the same regardless... I could very well be wrong tho.

The issue with directional is that its a simple button press as opposed to tracking the ball with the coverage indicator and having balls not come off the sweet spot. Directional is more of a roll of the dice. IF one times it right and holds the stick in the direction then there it goes as opposed to a right handed hitter having to let the ball get deeper on an inside pitch to hit oppo...

These were built around being rewarded for spotting pitches as a pitcher and driving balls out as a batter.

As Real as it gets and yet you have hitting view from the outfield?

See the other thread, I had it on Broadcast cams but the issue is timing as different stadiums have it at different levels behind the pitcher... that becomes problematic as it'll take at least 1 game of a 3 game series to adjust. This skews the stats as you'll struggle against gaging the pitch from the release point.

You can freely use Broadcast cams IF you want but this is the disclaimer as it will not give a fair assessment of the sliders. Everyone plays differently, but on Outfield cams everyone trying/testing is at a fair playing field regardless of stadium.
