Looks like we are going to have to manually change pants colors before each game. Both teams are wearing white pants again and the Astros are at home (unless this was done on purpose). Not that big of a deal, just have to remember to do it before each game.

I'm sorry, but the game is looking friggin' spectacular...

Small thing, but the Astros celebration at the end of the Critical Situation, when Correa and Altuve do their signature handshake, Altuve grows to the same height of Correa. Even though he's like 5' 5" I'm sure it's hard to have him stay the same height, just a minor thing.

So sick to see all the teammate/team handshakes in the game. Really adds a lot to the realism!

It is a big deal, it's a huge deal. At least to me.

Because i play RTTS, and you can't choose the CPU team uniforms in RTTS. I really hope i don't have to see a bunch of teams wearing white pants on the road.

I always noticed players being the same size at home plate after a home run, but man it really looks bad in that celebration at the end with Altuve and Correa.

I'm sure this is something that could be addressed in the first patch.

How will transfer seasons work with stats, since some entirely new stats are being tracked? Will there be 0's in that category? It's really unclear what will be lost this year with Year to year saves. Does anyone have a definitive word on this?

Never had to do this in any previous version of The Show. It always has the correct road and away colors in the start menu.

This was done by whomever did the videos and set the game up with white pants for both teams.

Nope this was a problem with the Twins blue alternates on the road in MLB 15 the Show. I know because i have it on video because my RTTS player hit his first career home run against them and they had white pants on on the road.

Also it was apparently a problem with a few other teams last year as well.

This pants thing is now a problem because several alternate tops that can be used as either home or road alternate tops are listed as home alternate tops and thus when the CPU selects them automatically, they are just keeping it with the white pants they are primarily set with. This was proven in last week's critical situations stream when the Rangers were wearing their blue alt tops in Seattle with their white pants. Going back to the stream that showed the uniform sets you can see that the Rangers blue top is paired with white pants which is the preset combo that the game picked in the critical situations stream. I feel confident that this is something that can be fixed but I also don't think these are just mistakes by whoever picked the uniforms in the videos in this thread.

I love these features and plan to use both a lot, but one thing I can't wrap my head around is why in Quick Manage there are no player ratings visible.

I'm really surprised a batter's relevant left/right contact, power and other relevant stats aren't listed and similar stats for pitchers.

How are you supposed to make management decisions if you can't see the ratings of what the player is capable of?

It seems like such a no brainer thing that should be there, I'm a bit mystified why it's not.

Worse case, it's a bug that will most likely be fixed in the day one patch. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

The white pants are what are dictated for those uniforms in the style guide. I just checked. You can change them to the others if you want.

The scaling discrepancy is a known issue with the shared presentation animations. They are meant to be used by multiple player combinations. So, using different scalings would result in misalignments between players and capturing different animation for every possible combination is not an option. Looking at other solutions eventually.

The problem here doesn't seem to be that the uniform is paired with white pants, the problem seems to be that CPU is even selecting that uniform for a road game.

Is it possible for the CPU to select the road pants when it's a road game though or is that also dictated by the style guide?

If not then hopefully down the line you guys just have it that uniforms with white pants can never be selected by the CPU for a road game. Thanks.

I see what you are saying. I will check on that...

And this is why you guys are the best. Direct feedback and, when appropriate, actually acting upon that feedback. I can't stress how easy it would be for a development team to say "thanks but no thanks" to fan feedback on these relatively little things. Thank you!
