Episode #127 of the NLSC Podcast is out now, and itís a special episode this week as Arcane and I welcome Leftos and JaoSming back to the show they started! After catching up with our old friends and joking around a little, we get down to business as Leftos gives us a detailed insight into MyGM, MyLEAGUE, and MyLEAGUE Online in NBA 2K16.

In short, a lot of work has gone into the franchise modes in NBA 2K16. In our interview, Leftos talks about improvements to logic and functionality, explains the ins and outs of the new features, describes the philosophy behind the development of the modes, and answers questions straight from the community. If the developer diary on MyGM, MyLEAGUE, and MyLEAGUE Online in NBA 2K16 got you excited to play this yearís franchise modes, youíll definitely want to tune in for more information.

BluFu has posted some of the details from the podcast below, but make sure you listen to it all, for much more.

The Good
  • Per 100 poss stats are in
  • For the normalize minutes option, you can normalize all stats if you don't play on 12 minute quarters
  • Player and team hot streaks are mentioned in the Ticker
  • In MyLeague Online, you can invite players into you league whenever you want
  • You can randomize owner personalities in MyGM.
  • Players and staff can give feedback on their decisions in MyGM (if they don't want to sign with you, they'll let you know why)
  • VC and in-game money (I'll call it 'IGM') are separate things. IGM is accumulated through completing owner goals and can be used on things like your arena and relocation. When you buy the team, a part of the profits accrued in game is put towards your IGM.
  • Owners can change goals (long term and short term) based on team situation (he will evaluate constantly during the season). As well, players can change ambitions.
  • You can now override player retirements in MyLeague! In MyGM, you can convince them to not retire (example: Convincing Duncan to stay another year because you feel the roster has got a shot at a ring. Or even promising a staff possition the next year)
  • Improved FA logic (won't have great players sitting in FA)
  • Player turned coaches go by a system called the HOF rating. Things like win totals and rings are taken into account (hopefully this includes role players like Avery Johnson and Steve Kerr)
  • Option to edit staff! this is huge! (offensive, defensive, training, and scouting attributes can be edited!)
  • Can also edit team style in edit staff option (can choose what types of players will be targeted)
  • When relocating, you don't need to keep the name of the city or team
  • Owners that disapprove or are unsure of your relocation can be questioned
  • Draft logic was looked at. Busts and steals have been included without crazy bad logic (assuming this means guys that are ranked low in the mock drafts won't be selected top 5 and vice versa)
  • Draft prospects automation has been reworked. Beds (among others) helped out in ensuring that prospects were rated appropriately according to the new scale
  • League talent balancing while simming many years was touched on (better ratio of talent among prospects)
  • Accessory logic has been added to draft prospects!! (Higher probability for dual knee sleeves, and matching home/away colors etc. They've also used accessory data from the NBA to reflect on the draft classes. Unfortunately, headbands weren't confirmed or denied)
  • Audio team has been working very hard
The Unfortunate
  • No option to 'force' a player to become a coach
  • You cannot save logo/jersey designs to be imported for later
  • No draft protections but it's being looked at for the future
  • No preseason or D-League (takes up a lot of space and resources)
  • No team/player export (very complex stuff)
  • Career ending injuries will not be accompanied by a letter to the fans

Dont be lazy just listen in man lol.

You get to see how these guys think instead of claiming "they don't care" or if they're trying to just rob you and give you the "same game" or not.

That is AWESOME! Hello, Kentucky Colonels!
Good lawd, 94 minutes?! Podcasts... podcasts are not my bag. Thanks for doing the dirty work.

Onliners can invite anyone into your league whenever you want. If you want to do it in the middle of the season or in the playoffs you can.

It's almost 3 hours long so Leftos is going in

You'd just have to listen in parts if you want but he's giving out a ton of info man

So much that you wont care for it all because its so in depth but its good stuff still.
 
# 14 23 @ 09/04/15 12:26 AM
Rebrand without Relocating without owner approval in MyLeague

Don't have to keep the name of the city or team if you relocate... name it whatever you want... can be as crazy as you want, its your choice

He said "Its YOUR sandbox"
 
# 15 23 @ 09/04/15 12:36 AM

Said its on the blue sky list for next year first and foremost

To clarify so that there's no misunderstandings, whenever I mention the blue sky list I'm not promising anything regarding 2K17. It would be far from me to do so. I'm just saying it's (and everything on the blue sky list is) something that's on our radar, but that doesn't mean it's going in next year or that we have evaluated how much effort and how many resources it would take.

I really hope you guys enjoy the podcast.

And please don't staple your fingers together.

Got it, caught that the 2nd time I rewound. We know davez said the blue sky list is not necessarily a "to do now" list

Still listening

Is there a limit to how many teams we can rebrand at once?

Just finished the whole thing. Lots there. I felt like I knew most of it but there were some new things and of course more depth.

Coach and staff profiles will be editable, except for ambition aspirations. That's for everyone on staff. Nice.

Unfortunately they never asked about trades in offseason during free agency, though. It's been a community wish every year, and with all they've done with off season, it would be a bit of a letdown if it didn't make it in.

In other words, it's because we Sim-Nation guys are too small in number. Sorry, folks.
I'm hoping there's some way they find a non playable way to at least assign and keep developmental prospects in D league the way they did years ago, and maybe even Europe.

Sounds like not this year though.
