Auto-Generated FA Prospects

This is a phenomenon that Iíve seen occur on a few rosters in the Show 18, especially OSFM 1.5 during the initial release.

These would be just randomly generated fake prospects put into the FA pool. and actually one of my favorite surprises.

Iím curious what triggers them to be generated as I have only seen 2 or 3 rosters, including OSFM 1.5, that have these random gen players.

Does anyone know what triggers the FA pool to generate random fake prospects?

Is it just the unsigned draft picks from other teams?

No, this happens at the start of a new franchise. Probably should have mentioned that

Weird. I know that 1.5 has a bunch of the signed international FA's like Puasson, Dominguez and Lora, but haven't seen this. Must be a few roster holes being filled in?

Re: Auto-Generated FA Prospects

I started my franchise in 18 and when I started up there was a 99 potential 20 year old SS in the free agents list. That's just incredible. There were some other decent fake prospects too. I also noticed that new FAs got generated when I headed into my first free agency. It wasn't just unsigned draft picks, as I kept meticulous track of them. Some of them were young enough to be considered prospects, but some were older. Like mid to late 20s. With no previous experience. Some of them are quite good. It's a weird thing. I have no idea why. If I had to take a guess, the game is probably designed to maintain at least X number of players at all times. And when a bunch of guys retire at the end of the season, if there aren't enough players from the draft to keep up the number, the game generates some players and puts them in the free agent pool?

Thatís what I was thinking but Iím still not sure how it plays into rosters. I know that means I would have to take OSFM 1.5 and update it completely which would take forever but it might be worth it, I dunno.


I just need to know what triggers those fake prospects to generate

So I loaded up my roster and checked something and found out something interesting.

In player Movement you have not one, but 4 Free Agent pools. The actual free agent pool followed by the Expansion Era Boomers, Long Ball Beasts, and the Mid Century Groundbreakers.

I remember the free-agent pool in game would have these players from those pools that arenít Legends in the actual franchise Free Agency pool.

In OSFM 1.5 the Long Ball Beasts pool is filled with Legends.

I need to figure out how to import legends into the free agent pool.
