Shaun (this is PhilK here), I am still debating on buying 2007, which would be my third purchase of Puresim. I have the demo and I see two (make it three) things here that are consistent from Ye Olde Daze. So I'll thrown them back out to you.
1) Injury length/severity - there's a thread and we talked about this years ago. EDIT: Amarog just pointed out some new parameters you have installed for injury severity, so I am going to tweak them to see if the capacity is there to create the desired injury severities - let's hold on this.
2) Bell curve adjustment for statistical superstar seasons (hard to word)
We also talked about this via email and what I am discussing here is the potential for a guy to have a mega-stat season. For example, massive strikeout total, homerun total, or stolen base total. As it has been for some time, the bell curve is keeping everything within a certain range and the league averages and ranges are SUPERB. However, there is still not the ability or likelihood that a player will have a monster year and race away from the pack. No George Fosters, Kevin Whatsisface, Nolan Ryans, etc. Basically players need to be able to have a career year, and some guys with incredible ratings need to be able to light the record book on fire.
How you do that, I am not sure. I think to make the record books authentic (for fictional leagues, and I still say that is the best stuff), I think there needs to be this ability. Admittedly, it is hard and if you want me to consider some ways for this to occur, just let me know.
3) A minor thing for stats, but I'd like to see some hitters who produce more walks that strikeouts. I know that is rare now, but it wasn't so long ago. One thing I liked about Ripken was his eye and discipline at the plate. Just an example.
OK, you can PM me if you want to talk some. Hope the family is doing great. How many children are you up to now?!!!?
