Questions:

1. Your website mentions that OOTP09 will have sound. Can you be more specific? And is it customizable?

2. Your website also mentions that you will have 2008 MLB rosters. Are you still using the Lahman Database, hand drawn rosters, or a combination of the two? And what will be the cutoff date for the rosters?

3. As a player who manages each game, are there any specific improvements to that mode you would like to talk about?

I've never played a hardcore text based sim, but was an avid player of franchise modes in such games like The Show.

What are some things i might expect OOTP to do much better than the franchise modes of such games?

Can I control how much detail i want to control? like if i only want to manage the MLB rosters, or all minor rosters?

Do you have an in-game manger mode?

How do u handle potential and progression, especially for young prospects?

What's weighted in the trade system?


thank you

1. Have any changes been made to the financial system in the game, such as market size, merchanise, etc.?

2. You've mentioned that the scouting system has been recoded. Any specifics on the changes made to this aspect?

Could you imagine if the presentation of The Show was combined with the OOTP engine? MY GOD.

Is it possible that sometime you could have the real rookies come in the draft at the time that they did and have that teams moves be accurate? So that you could be playing the a team in 1949 and then if you get to 2008 you will be playing their 2008 team unless you signed someone that should be on it?

And also for sometime soon could you expand it beyond a text sim? Like have simulated gameplay that you can view even if it's just highlights?

Thanks.
ps. if these questions are kind of off, it's because I've never used a text sim before

You can do that.

Yea you can do that if you use the Lahman Database.

Visit ootpdevelopments.com for more details on how to get this to work for you.

How has international scouting/free agency been revamped?

Thanks!

Is the database easily changed? so that the rosters can be up to date instead of just based on opening day. very thankful now that i don't have to search out mlb rosters.
