I am really impressed with how the game has progressed since I first bought it almost two years ago now.
That said, I'm not a huge historical fan, so closer usage isn't that big of a deal to me. At the same time, I think some of the historical aspects need to be addressed and I would have no qualms about you working on those in the meantime.
As for my needs, I think there are a few small areas:
1) Expansion should be flushed out a bit more, as has been discussed. Some people wanted to try their hand at being an expansion team and were unable to take control of one prior to the expansion draft.
2) Although the almanac is fantastic, would it be possible to keep more info from the player's cards in it? Such as transaction and milestone history? I don't know how much more space that would take up, but I'm guess not a ton. Even if it does, there could be an option for how much it does.
3) Could we be given the option, in game, to change the names of the various awards and the championship series? Also, would it be possible to have control over the way playoffs are run, and possibly include a play-in game/series for teams tied at the end of the regular season? I had a fictional association, just yesterday, with ten teams in it (2 divisions), and both divisions had two teams tied for the top spot. Possibly adding an asterix or something to denote the tiebreaking team might be good too, just so it's easier to tell.
4) I love the ball flight animation, but I think some of the pop-ups are WAY too high. I know some can really get up there in real life, but when homeruns look like they are mere line drives, no matter how far OR high they go, and little pop-ups go off the screen AND take almost 15 seconds to come down, it can be sort of odd. Overall, the ball flight works REALLY well and adds a lot to the PSPNcast, but the time and height of some popups is just a little too much.
I think these things are rather small, cosmetic changes, but I think they would add a lot to the game. Please, move forward on the historical aspects, however, because a good number of the PureSim fans are really after that, and the more people playing the game, the better for me as well as you. Thanks Shuan!
