UPGRADE QUESTION
« on: January 12, 2016, 12:15:23 PM »
Hello gents....

I have a proposal I'd like to run by all of you.

The sim we use for HIFL will eventually become obsolete.  The engine will no longer be updated and features will no longer be added due to the developer working with another company now.  They have released a new version of the same sim under a new banner, and I have been playing with it over the past month or so to see how different it is from the one we currently use.

The look and feel of the sim on my end is much cleaner and it has the same brain (basically) so the results should still run the same way.  The program/sim itself is so much the same (since the same guy made it) that I have copy and pasted the league files from the current sim over to the new one and it opened right up in the new window with all the new bells and whistles, while maintaining all the settings I have tweaked for HIFL.

I'm going to include a few images (screen shots) of the NFL league I am using as a demo (demo mode you can't play past year 2, so even though HIFL imported, I cant sim a game to use for my example).

The benefit of upgrading to this new sim is:

- Updates and Support
If the sim has a problem or new features are desired, I can suggest them on the games forum and there is a chance of it being resolved in a patch in the future.  The developer was great about this when running the sim we have now, and is very active on the boards for the newest version.

- Future updates and added features
Original plan before this new sim came out was to make a college sim for our current model and I'd be able to provide actual stats/season info for the college class vs. having to use my brain based on players skills/stats and predetermined storylines.  The game is supposed to evolve and get better in future updates that make it even more "advanced" beyond what we currently have, so despite them being the same now minus the new graphics, it will eventually be a stronger gap.


One featured added is the option to push the XP back like the NFL did this year, and in the next update the logic of some coaches going for 2 more often than kicking the long XP will arrive....

another feature is a more involved feedback of player improvement/decrease over the course of the season, while I haven't had the time to play with it, it "could" get your coaches to give you more feedback, as I'll have it at my finger tips, potentially.




Now:  The new game costs $35.00

If you guys want to all donate in, I'll do the upgrade/update, but currently with the baby coming in March and a lack of work since Thanksgiving due to stupid govt. budgets cancelling classes, I'm in no position to buy it myself, or I wouldn't bother you guys with this.


So, if you're interested, we can vote/see who can/will/wants to donate, if we can raise 35 bucks, I'll upgrade the game and we'll start Season 7 in the new sim.


Discuss!

That's awesome Justin.

I was going to post and say I'd be willing to donate some towards the game, so I can donate some money just because (or to Justin to help out with the price!)

Money sent.

Edit: I don't mind paying it, so if you guys want to chip in too, I say we make Talon buy something for the baby with the extra money.

We should sooooo do this and put the baby's name on the back of the jersey.

As someone who saw the rings this past week, yes they are real.
If true that would be absolutely pathetic...

Apparently the rings are less pathetic now ...
