MLB The Show 21 Stadium Creator Will Be Comprehensive and Fully Customizable

San Diego Studio has posted the final teaser video of the winter as we grind closer to next week’s “feature premier” schedule. The developers revealed what folks will be able to tinker with in the MLB The Show 21 stadium creator. As it stands, it looks like you will be able to tweak just about anything you can set your mind to. SDS also detailed what modes the feature can be used in this year.

One of the biggest looming questions after the announcement of create-a-stadium was how customizable new stadiums were going to be. Were there going to be wall presets? Were backdrops going to be presets? Was the mode going to strictly utilize pre-created assets? Well, it seems just about anything your heart desires may be possible.

MLB The Show 21 will feature over 1,000 unique pieces that can be used in different ways at different spots in your new ballpark. The Gateway Arch from St. Louis, the South Side Point Bridge from Pittsburgh, among other historic landmarks are included, in that cache. But it’s not just solely pre-constructed assets either. In some screenshots, unique pieces can be seen used in different parts of the ballpark, including two floating spaceship-type structures hovering in center field.

The Field of Dreams set was also constructed as an example. Trees can be edited and moved around the premises. Statues and their foundational material can be changed too. Dirt patterns on the infield can be changed as well. It’s probably a little too early to claim anything is possible (seating arrangements potentially need to be showcased more, for example), but it does seem there’s going to be enough customizability that your own personality and flair can come out in your creations.

Ballpark dimensions have been another point of contention among the online community, and this video did a good job of laying out what’s possible on that front as well. Ballpark dimensions will be free-form, so players will be able to tinker with their walls quite a bit it seems. Wall color is also fully customizable. We’ll have to wait and see how far in you can bring the fences and how high you can build them up, but in this video the sample provided had the corners pulled in to 345 feet. The wall height looked to peak at about 40 feet. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s any regulation on dimensions whatsoever.

That leads directly into the conversation of where these custom stadiums can be used, and yes, they can be used inside franchise mode and Diamond Dynasty. It remains to be seen if these can be used inside ranked seasons or Battle Royale, but if that’s possible, you’d think competitive balance will be addressed. Roster construction would be an enormous advantage to the home team considering they could build out a lineup stacked with players who take advantage of a short porch.

This video also suggests you can “share your stadium and play or edit your favorites in the online community.” Presumably this means we are getting a stadium vault as well. The ability to download community-built stadiums would be an excellent addition to the game. Being able to pull a classic stadium and throw it into your franchise without the dread of having to build it yourself would be terrific for franchise mode especially..

One question not answered in this video is whether or not domes or retractable roof stadiums will be available to edit. We’ll have to wait and see there.

The MLB The Show 21 stadium creator looks like a really well thought out feature that should be beloved by the community. Even in this teaser, I think it’s fair to say the developers showcased more than most of us were expecting from this new feature in year one. San Diego Studio looks to have made a very comprehensive create-a-stadium, and it doesn’t feel like any major shortcuts were taken. We’ll get more information about this mode in a future feature premier.

  1. Very excited to try this out next month!
    The fact you can share your stadiums is a great feature for some of us that lack......building skills.
    My hope is they add a way to share created jerseys down the road.

    Definitely looks more promising. I understood the complaints by others that all images in the first video leaned to what minor league ballpark looks like, but it looks like the customization potential here gets beyond that fear.
    This looks significantly better than I expected. This would breathe more life into the minors in my franchise for sure and definitely moves me closer to buying the new game.
    OMG!!!!
    It legit looks like they've "created a monster"!
    I'm super happy that this doesn't appear to be a 'dip the toe into the water' type feature.... they've fully developed this stadium creator. Judging by the immense customization, I think that they've been developing this for longer than the past development cycle!
    I actually like the fact the we can use created stadium in both DD and franchise.... although, I'm wondering if DD mean offline only (unless there are basic online DD stadium building limitations in place with wall height/field dimension, etc).
    SOOOOOOO happy that I've got a PS5 sitting under my 85" Sony x900h 4K TV right now... April 16th CANNOT come soon enough!
    With the amount of clamoring for this feature this board has done over the last few years I assumed this place would be flipping out. I don’t see how you could ask for much more out of what that video showed. And being able to share them and use them online in DD blows away even my expectations for them. They seem to have delivered in spades on this. As a DD player this is going to add so much fun (and frustration haha) to games this year.

    Excited for some of the super talented people here to build some of the classic stadiums that we have spent years asking SDS to build for us... i might even take a shot at building Old Comiskey Park :)
    I'm going to spend a lot of time with this feature.
    I doubt you'll be able to do this, but it would be nice to be able to change a teams stadium during a franchise without having to relocate them.
    I'm sure it'll be at the beginning of your franchise or tied to relocation however.

    The sharing feature will be interesting. It would be cool to create a franchise with players from another era with user made stadiums that resemble the stadiums from that era. That's always held me back from using some of the rosters created here from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, etc.
    Over the years all the talk of stadium creator never really interested me. This video turned this into a must have feature for me. Looks very in depth and not just a generic creator. Hoping I or someone can create Old Tiger Stadium for me. I was lucky enough to grab a PS5 for my son( :wink::wink:) at Christmas so I am pretty pumped. Stadium Creator is the feature I never knew I needed and now don't think I can live without.
    Really great stuff SDS.
    Since they said you can share stadiums, I hope that means people on ps4/xbox one can download created stadiums from the vault.

    It’ll probably be like how franchise is now, where you can select which ballpark you’d like to play each game in. So while you won’t necessarily be able to assign a created stadium as a team’s default home stadium, you can simply just select your created stadium every time you play a home game. Or even for away games if you create multiple parks.

    This is all I've ever wanted from this game! The first video left me a little underwhelmed, but this one blew that out of the water. This is almost like Planet Coaster levels of customization and it will only get better and better over time. Can't wait to make an Angel Stadium II, some real spring training stadiums and whatever else i want. I was gonna wait on getting a PS5 until they were available in stores but this just changed all of that.

    I think there will be a group of people who will not play one game of the show 21 but spend all their time creating historic stadiums. that would be incredible. i have faith in the show community that by Summer 2021 , every stadium that existed in MLB history will be created and ready to be shared in the vault.
    OS better start making a 'MLB THE SHOW Stadiums' sub forum.

    I'm hoping people will create minor league stadiums too. I'd love to be able to play in the park that I grew up going to all the time.
    OMG, color me impressed! SDS cranked it out of the park on this one and did it right. This is something that can make the game infinitely replayable. Now just got to find me a Series S somewhere! (unless Xbox One users can download created stadiums?)
    So Im guessing this is why no Y2Y saves since stadiums can be used in Franchise........ Not that they made huge updates in Franchise.
    Really hope I'm wrong tho.

    I doubt it since creator is next gen only.
    Looks very promising. I sure hope that moving the fences back actually affect home run totals. So,e other baseball games have home runs coded to be irrelevant of distance. What I mean is, if the game is coded where you lined up all variables (perfect contact, high player ratings, perfect timing, etc) the game would code to say “home run” regardless of distance so if u had a 460 ft center field like some classic stadiums had, it would be a home run regardless of distance.
    I imagine the show doesn’t suffer that problem but with the adjustable fences, I sure hope that doesn’t become a thing.
    Very excited for this !
    This is a lot more in depth than I thought it would be. I wonder if there will be a limit to how many you can make, for example, can you make a stadium for every minor league team? Also it would be nice if once you create a stadium you could assign teams that would automatically use it, so you could play in them in RttS.
    So happy this is finally in the game. And it doesn’t look as limited as I thought it could be. Very cool. It’s going to be fun to see what some people make.
    Not something I see myself ever using unless there is expansion, but looks to be well done and fully fleshed. I'm happy for the people that have wanted this for so long!

    The creator might be but if people can play with them in DD (and I'd have to assume, though unconfirmed, online) and we have crossplay across gens, it IS possible that the final stadium data may be translatable into the current gen architecture to actually play games. It may be the creator itself that is problematic and why it couldn't be implemented into current gen.
    If that were the case, it IS possible, that a stadium vault would be applicable to current gen as well.
    I'll put it this way, it would not at all surprise me if you are correct. However, I do think there is some wiggle room for a little optimism.
    Personally, it's no biggie to me one way or the other...but I wouldn't assume anything at this juncture.
    Gotta admit, this stadium creator feature looks very well implemented and cool. Looking forward to messing with it.

    I doubt it would get out too of whack. I haven't played many games in Polo Grounds, but have never hit a home run to center or the gaps even on perfect flyballs, so I would imagine created stadiums would be the same if they have weird dimensions
    Sent from my SM-G930VL using Operation Sports mobile app
    I'm thrilled they don't have restricted dimensions, wall sizes, etc. but that I can literally build the actual park of my dreams.
    Couple of things I noticed:
    Grass designs are customizable...noticed in the video different designs.
    IF dirt could be "selected" so it looks like it can be customized.
    I noticed the dirt path to the pitcher in one screenshot.
    The runner path next to the 1B/3B lines were different.
    I saw bullpens in the foul lines (in the field of dreams stadium). Wonder how much we can build with bullpens both in foul territory and in the OF?
    Yes!! Finally glad to see they have finally added Create a Stadium. A feature us diehard MLB The Show players have been asking for years to get into the game!!! Looks like from the video, they have been been working on Create a Stadium quite a while. At least a couple years to get this much personal touch into it!! Can’t wait to have fun making a wide range of stadiums!! Now i need to get lucky and get a
    Ps5 in my hands before April 16th!!!

    I sure hope that moving the fences back actually affect home run totals.

    This is a GREAT question; for that matter, I hope it impacts all hit variety.
    You can even plant freaking trees. Knocked it out of the park for the first year of the feature. It will only improve and add more assets I’m sure.
    Anyone asking for this feature should be to the moon. Also I can only imagine the resources this took to put together so not sure how much franchise will change but hopefully some surprises there too.
    Possible negative: The only way to use a new stadium is to start a new franchise and "relocate" a team...like the way it is in '20 with the created teams. Can't use them in playoff or exhibition mode, which is just silly.

    Sorry, I have to clarify - I don't know if this is true, I am just hoping that it's not the case. I was really excited about the create a team feature, but it blows that you have to be in Franchise mode to use your creations. My thinking is that the created teams are "relocated teams" in the developers eyes, so you only relocate teams in franchise mode...kind of like why you would need a new stadium. So, I'm really hoping that this isn't the case, but I'm going to brace for it.

    Looks cool , but seems like a wasted effort considering 98% of the player base with PS4's won't be able to use it.

    But 100% of the player base with a PS5 or XSX|S will be able to use it.
    For all the people that say: “now if I can only get my hands on a ps5” you should subscribe to a few ps5 stock notification twitter accounts and turn notifications on. I scored 2 in a week.

    Should they have shelved it for another 2 or 3 years until most have made the jump? It's something that wasn't possible on PS4. Eventually there will be a lot of things the PS4 versions won't have as it's old hardware. I wouldn't exactly call what looks to be multiple years of work wasted effort for those that have next gen and for those that will get it and enjoy it the coming months.

    The sharing feature will be interesting. It would be cool to create a franchise with players from another era with user made stadiums that resemble the stadiums from that era. That's always held me back from using some of the rosters created here from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, etc.
    I'm building the Cookie Cutters. I'm a die-hard Phillies fan. 40 years old. Grew up with them stadiums. Can't wait to build them. The Vet, Three Rivers, Riverfront!! I'm definitely going to have fantasy playoff scenerios going down. 08 Phillies vs the 80 Phillies. Haha. With ballparks to go with it.

    I don't think the Show is coded this way, because I've had a handful of perfects including one yesterday which was not a home run.
    Curious if you can make a dome or a retractable roof stadium with this Stadium Creator.... :google:
    This is looking super sweet. I sense the possibilities though I'm also sensing some limitations (still can't tell how the seating templates work out, though I'm sure you piece things together). Also, as I've said in the past, the backdrops are severely unconventional in the majority of these for an MLB ballpark and this game seems to be no exception.
    One of my greatest curiosities is whether this improves year-to-year. Batting stance creator, which is an awesome idea, had a lot of issues the first time through, and it seems they never really improved on it. In fact, I didn't touch it in MLB The Show 20, and I don't even know if it's in the game anymore. I hope that can improve alongside this over time, because SDS is doing things that no other baseball video game company has ever dared to do (these two things plus year-to-year saves).
    Now, given that this was a PS5/XSX video, I'm still underwhelmed on the visuals... not because they're not "good," but because the idea of an overhaul just isn't there. For many, this is okay; I was just hoping the transition would mean a new opportunity to reinvent this title in that regard. I can't even tell if we're getting more fan variation or not.
    I doubt we'll be able to add to existing stadiums or else I think we would have seen it here, and I wonder if there is any budgeting for franchise mode that is needed with creating stadiums as well. Regardless, they are on the right track with this so far, especially when it comes to sharing stadiums.
    Color me excited! I'm just not going to be with you all on 4/20 though since I don't have a PS5, but I'm looking forward to the possibilities and highly anticipating my crack at this that I can get down the line.
    One thing has me worried from that video...
    They mentioned that we can use our created stadium’s in DD and franchise mode. They didn’t mention exhibition mode.
    I really hope they didn’t do something stupid and limit this to only DD/Franchise.
    Custom teams/logos aren't available in exhibition are they? If not it will probably be the same way for stadiums. Looks like another one of those things we won't find out until it's released.

    If they follow that same path it will be a really bad look. This is a great new feature. Hate to see them waste it with limitations.
    There’s literally ZERO reason we shouldn’t be able to use custom stadiums in exhibition mode. We can use custom rosters and custom players already.
    Walmart is going to have PS5s back in stock in like 7 minutes. Just a heads up to anyone looking. Xbox Series S is available on walmart.com right now it seems.

    RTTS is another mode this better be available in. With the ability to finally choose your stadium of course. Anything less is them dropping the ball big time.

    Yes according to Coach they are sharable.

    I wonder how many stadiums we could create. If you take the video literally, they never talk about the stadium creator in a plurality. It's only use A stadium, Create A stadium, share you Stadium. I am by no means saying this is the case. The feature looks really cool. BUT I am not completely sold yet.
    Still not picking up a next gen console anytime soon anyway so my opinion is moot. But I like getting all of the hate mail.

    Wasn't at the top of my list, but this seems very promising. I will gladly take new Spring Training/Minor League parks, though.

    Depending on how its implemented (meaning free creativity or tied to expansion/relocation) I may dabble and create spring training parks just to have a few more different stadiums to choose from.
    As of now, I assign minor league parks to teams as their Spring Training stadium.

    Yup...it is a joke of a lauch. There will be plenty by this summer and Christmas.
    The scalpers will get stuck with heavy inventory at some point and dump at retail.
    I think the whole thing smells. Never seen this type of launch and I realize supply chains are strained......but I see no issues with people getting I-Phones, TV’s, a host of stuff.
    This is a scam. And a big one. Shame on Sony and Microsoft for the piss poor execution and the retailers who are not controlling the bots at all.
    Just a joke. And I will not pay over retail for a console with nothing in terms of games....at 69.99 a pop. yeah....we can wait a long while....and we will. No rush.
    It just stinks for the regular joe consumer. And the funny thing is I can easily drop $800-1200 for a PS5....money is not the issue.
    My principals though will not allow it as well as my common sense. If people want to support the scalper markets.....all the power to you. It’s your money.
    I am just a little smarter and wiser about it. Been buying consoles since like forever lol. Can you believe that An Atari 2600 back in the 1980 went for 300-400 bucks? WOW!!!!! I am being serious too. It was crazy. My dad said wait...just be patient.
    We ended up getting an Atari in 1981 for $199 with all the controllers and 10 games (Asteroids, INDY 500, Combat, Superman, Adventure, Football, Homerun, Pac-Man, Warlords, Missile Command). Man.....I still remember my dad coming home with it. I was jumping for freaking joy.

    It just stinks for the regular joe consumer. And the funny thing is I can easily drop $800-1200 for a PS5....money is not the issue.
    My principals though will not allow it as well as my common sense. If people want to support the scalper markets.....all the power to you. It’s your money.
    I am just a little smarter and wiser about it. Been buying consoles since like forever lol. Can you believe that An Atari 2600 back in the 1980 went for 300-400 bucks? WOW!!!!! I am being serious too. It was crazy. My dad said wait...just be patient.
    We ended up getting an Atari in 1981 for $199 with all the controllers and 10 games (Asteroids, INDY 500, Combat, Superman, Adventure, Football, Homerun, Pac-Man, Warlords, Missile Command). Man.....I still remember my dad coming home with it. I was jumping for freaking joy.

    I work in retail, and electronics. I was told I'd get fired if I sold them in store. They literally came in on my birthday, and couldn't touch them. They sat in the back for a week until they made them available for online orders. I gave up early, and took that PS5 money, and put it towards a PC. I can wait, but these launches were an absolute disaster...

    Walmart is going to have PS5s back in stock in like 7 minutes. Just a heads up to anyone looking. Xbox Series S is available on walmart.com right now it seems.

    Yeah I went on at 4:20 right when they said they would be available and were gone in 3 seconds. Until the build there internal security to mitigate boys I’ll never see one. Thanks for the heads up to you and country boy though
    I'm sure you guys already have tried this... But have you tried FB marketplace and Craigslist? That's actually how I scored mine, found a good dude on Craiglist, worked out a deal and I got mine for $600.
    Just popping in to say I got my PS5 through Walmart today about 15 minutes ago, and I had been trying every single restock since release day.
    Never give up, folks.
    Now I can't wait to experience this game on next-gen.
    Wow this looks awesome and a lot better then I was expecting for year 1. Now if only they’d confirm in the franchise stream that Y2Y saves is coming back next year we’d really have something going here. :y220:

    Yup...it is a joke of a lauch. There will be plenty by this summer and Christmas.
    The scalpers will get stuck with heavy inventory at some point and dump at retail.

    To continue my trend of being the one to cast doom and gloom and be negative about everything The Show. (Paraphrasing from my DM's)
    I wonder how many stadiums we could create. If you take the video literally, they never talk about the stadium creator in a plurality. It's only use A stadium, Create A stadium, share you Stadium. I am by no means saying this is the case. The feature looks really cool. BUT I am not completely sold yet.
    Still not picking up a next gen console anytime soon anyway so my opinion is moot. But I like getting all of the hate mail.

    Would make absolutely no sense. Wouldn’t be shareable if that’s the case.
    Also nothing said in that video would even hint a single stadium.

    LOL everything in that video hinted at only a single stadium. Sure it would be shareable if it was only one. In fact it would make it easier. How much disk space do you think that a stadium takes up? I have no idea. I am just asking not being confrontational. They said for years that they could not add extra uniforms because they take too much space.
    I will bet they find a way to monetize this. They will sell extra packs of features or architecture that can be added to create a stadium.
    I am also concerned if you look at the print during the video. It says online required to play as shown. If that is the case I am definitely out.
    This Looks very very promising! Just some initial thoughts and hopes.
    1. Will we be able to swap out the generic minor league/spring training stadiums in franchise mode for the ones that are created in the future vault?
    2. Can we edit current MLB stadiums and make it so they have the right advertisements, at least for the ones on the outfield wall and behind the plate (this would be huge!!!)
    I am already looking forward to the future forum that will show where each past MLB stadium is located in the vault

    They could just as easily lock the assets behind stubs. They never said that all the assets are available from the get go.
    This is really amazing for everyone that has been clamoring for it over the years. And they really went all in on it too. A couple questions that I have though that I cant wait to be answered.
    1) Will you be able to add in custom stadiums to your franchise, or will they have to replace current stadiums? Id love to be able to create FoD, London, or Mexico stadiums and have teams plays a regular season game there.
    2) If they replace current stadiums, can you create them whenever you want? And can you revert back to the current stadiums if you want?
    If the feature is how rebranding currently works, I might dabble in it to replace the Trop and O.Co but thats about it.

    I am also concerned if you look at the print during the video. It says online required to play as shown. If that is the case I am definitely out.
    yeah, if this means you need a PS Plus subscription, I'll pass.

    Considering theyre advertising it for the online mode Diamond Dynasty and to “share” your stadium, of course it says that.

    RTTS is another mode this better be available in. With the ability to finally choose your stadium of course. Anything less is them dropping the ball big time.

    I mean they stated it worked for franchise. So it’s definitely offline...
    As far as exhibition or RTTS, definitely sounds like a real possibility it’s not going to be available there.
    Surely though, you can pick the stadium just as any other minor league or classic stadium.

    I'm definitely excited to get into the create a stadium. Still curious about exactly how much of the stadium will be customizable - it looks great from today's video as far as modifying stadium walls and outfield artifacts. How about seating and stuff behind home plate, for example. I can see losing plenty of time to fiddling around with this.
    I can’t imagine you would need PS plus for this and it wouldn’t have been in the fine print of the video. Also people have mentioned the franchise stream,l and I k ow they mentioned streams. Is there any stream schedule or anything? When is the franchise stream again?
    Yeah...THAT Guy
    I'm hoping people will create minor league stadiums too. I'd love to be able to play in the park that I grew up going to all the time.
    I'd love to play a Birmingham Barons season at Rickwood Field. it would seem to be an easyish park to recreate, though I'd personally just be glad to get the fencing right and seating accommodations as approximate as possible

    This looks great but...
    I hope we can just change stadiums without having to create a new team in franchise. With the same 5 ridiculous jersey numbers to choose from. Kinda makes this useless for franchise for ME anyway. And I don’t play DD.
    Again, looks awesome but I hope create a team gets an upgrade or it’s gonna be a cool *** feature that I’ll never get to use
    I was fully expecting to see 5 or so generic stadiums that you could change the wall colors, scoreboard type and dugouts. And that was it.
    But holy moly my jaw is dropped to the ground. This is I think what everyone hoped this feature would be.
    It looks like it has aspects from all of the stadiums in game that you can mix and match with.
    Also looks like there are classic/minor/current/future themes.
    People have mentioned the big questions already
    1. How many can you create
    2. Can you play in exhibition/RTTS
    3. Will these be used in online H2H DD games
    4. Can you assign multiple different stadiums to various teams within franchise.
    5. Can you edit pre existing stadiums
    I’m not sure what these answers are but t have what seems like a fully deep feature in year 1 deserves a round of applause in my mind.

    So making up numbers now? Lol

    Figure of speech, ever heard of it? That said here are the numbers...
    162 million last gen consoles have been sold so far. (PS & Xbox)
    8.5 new current gen consoles have been sold so far, and we all know that a lot of them are being scalped, not actually activated and being played on.
    The show basically sells 1 million copies a year which should increase this year due to Microsoft availability.
    Let's just pretend that 1% of last gen and 1% of current gen console owners buy the show this year...
    last gen = 1.62 million copies would be sold.
    new gen = 85,000 copies would be sold.
    If those numbers were true and 1% of the owners bought the show this year, then only 5.25% of all sales would be on new gen.
    Caulfield
    that 98% figure could be legit.
    less than 23.3% of all quoted figures are fabricated.
    :y1:

    They say that 76 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot. That being said I am 93 percent certain that 98 percent figure is accurate.

    What figure of speech involves the term. 98% ? Lol
    Instead of pretending, let’s just go with older sales figures.
    First year ps3 and ps4 were jointly sold.
    2014 MLB 14: The Show 430,000 (PS3), 730,000 (PS4), 120,000 (PSV)
    And besides, I’m not even understanding the point regardless. It’s a feature they said in the past wasn’t possible current gen. Next gen comes out and they implement it for the consoles that can handle it.
    Something tells me more than 85k copies will be sold for the PlayStation 5. They’ve already sold over 4.5 million world wide consoles. It’s not all scalpers lol.

    Hey right now my target date for a PS5 is Christmas. My wife knows I want one....and she is awesome.
    As far as 21. If I get confirmation of roster imports still being functional for 21 on the PS4.....I am in. That will ease the sting of losing Y2Y knowing I can jam all the incredible rosters from 20 on 21.
    And that means an included upgrade to the PS5 version of the game come Christmas time as I would get the Jackie Robinson Collectors Edition (physical PS4 copy which has the digital PS5 copy).
    So let’s keep our fingers crossed for the roster import feature still being alive. That is make or break for me personally. I do not care about starting a current day franchise. Not enough for me to get 21.

    This is all I've ever wanted from this game! The first video left me a little underwhelmed, but this one blew that out of the water. This is almost like Planet Coaster levels of customization and it will only get better and better over time. Can't wait to make an Angel Stadium II, some real spring training stadiums and whatever else i want. I was gonna wait on getting a PS5 until they were available in stores but this just changed all of that.

    I think I'll go in the opposite direction and make Angels Stadium when it opened! If they've got a St. Louis arch in the game, I can only imagine they have the Big A available as well! If so, gonna see if I can make it the scoreboard again :D
    On that note, this blows away anything I had dreamed up on them having. It also looks extremely customizable for the outfield seats, they look very adjustable (look at the one shot of the stairs like ones when they're placing the solar panels). It looks height and placement adjustable. I thought we might end up limited to where they'd be but.....and I'm probably being overdramatic, but this looks like it's worth the 15 year wait :lol:
    Pair this creator with expansion or even the ability to make custom league alignments and even have less teams (if I wanted to recreate the NPB over in Japan for instance that has only 12 teams), that would bring this game a lot closer to OOTP in depth, but with the ability to take place in the games.
    I haven't been this excited for a game in this series since 17. I cannot wait!

    This is a lot more in depth than I thought it would be. I wonder if there will be a limit to how many you can make, for example, can you make a stadium for every minor league team? Also it would be nice if once you create a stadium you could assign teams that would automatically use it, so you could play in them in RttS.
    I'm also wondering how many created stadiums can be made/used.

    I'm also wondering how many created stadiums can be made/used.

    I'd be willing to bet we'll be able to save as many as we want within reason (they may have a limit on how many saves of that type there are though at a time. Like how you can only have like 50 created players saved or whatever the number is).
    They may have increased numbers of saves available for each thing as we'll due to the nature of the SSD's the PS5's have for all we know. And I think that for the people bringing up them not adding more jerseys due to memory isn't quite the same. Jerseys bloat the install file. The stadium (I would imagine) would be its own save file and not part of the install. So I think it's not quite the same. Though I'm sure they'll clear it up in the streams.
    Not good at this stuff myself, but it looks great.
    I can't wait to see what the community comes up with.
    Hope you can use different colors to really recreate the stadiums from the past, and especially hope we can place addboards as well, fake adds for sure due to copyright, but at least give us the option to make and place them in the right colors and location.
    I strictly play offline with classic rosters, so hoping that all those classic rosters can be transferred. The classic stadiums will really help with the immersion.
    That being said : i still don't have a ps5.
    Does seating capacity in the stadium you build affect your bottom line? Can you create a team and customize the stadium to your team? I wonder what bugs will present itself. I am certain that when you create a game, certain object in the programming stage are used in conjunction with one another. Will the take this into account with allowing us to build a stadium with such a large amount of options. How will ball trajectory play into the objects? If I hit a homerun, will the ball bounce off of that created placed object or will it clip throw it? These are questions I would like answers to.
    Looks okay, still can't really tell what types of stadiums that can be built though, especially the outfield stands which tend to be what gives stadiums their distinct feel.
    Can you recreate Tiger Stadium?

    How about Ebbetts?

    How much control will there be over the outfield stands?
    Can't really tell from this preview.

    I hope in Franchise, it's tied to income somehow. Like, if I'm the Pirates, if I happen to win a lot, it increases my budget, allowing me to add seats to a stadium, which in turn increases my budget some more.

    Let's just pretend that 1% of last gen and 1% of current gen console owners buy the show this year...
    last gen = 1.62 million copies would be sold.
    new gen = 85,000 copies would be sold.
    If those numbers were true and 1% of the owners bought the show this year, then only 5.25% of all sales would be on new gen.

    As the other person that already showed you The Show historical data said, you have a complete misunderstanding of how game sales go when new systems launch. Miles Morales is selling over 50% on PS5. You shouldn't use numbers when you have such little knowledge of context.
    I gotta say, initially, stadium creator wasn't a priority for me, or even something I figured I'd mess with. But after reading people's ideas and, thinking of some of my own, I've become more intrigued.
    I’m so excited for all the ballparks the community is going to create. Maybe you can chose to ditch a few minor league stadiums that come with the game to fill with user created ones to save space.
    By the way I think this might also be a way for SDS not having to pay the license for classic stadiums anymore because now the community maybe just maaaaybe creates stadiums that look like their counterpart and there’s no more need for the official licensed versions to be in the game
    Once I get a PS5 and get around to getting the Show again I will be recreating a classic stadium I created way back in the day and can't wait to see how it plays.
    In high School I had a game on my quality Tandy 1000 HX called Earl Weaver Baseball. Created a stadium in there where the foul lines were as deep as the game allowed with highest walls allowed which I think were 40 feet. Then Center Field was as close as allowed and 4 foot walls which were the smallest you could go.
    Guys would hit stuff in the gap and get Inside the Park Home Runs. Super Weak hitters would hit straight away Home Runs. For my high school self it was pretty fun. Now it might be a pain in the butt but I still want to give it a look.
    Beyond that not a feature I would use much but it's great they added this since so many people have been asking for it! Depending on how many you can make and transfer it will be great for historical seasons as well.
    This is epic might be a bit early for advertisements in Ebbets.
    None the less happy with what is offered.
    Can't wait to see what our creative contributors have to offer.
    Created Stadiums can be shared!
    Hope stadium audio names can happen.
    Text to Speech Synthesizer for teams players managers and Stadiums would be timely.
    Just keeps getting better and better. ️

    Octoshop is the extension on Chrome that I used. There's a video in the extension about how to set stock alerts. You can get the alert immediately and when you click on the notification it will take you straight to the product on the web page. It comes immediately though as long as you sign up for the immediate stock alerts when setting the options. But it will compare multiple stores. Like for the PS5 they have Target, BB, Amazon, Playstation Direct, Gamestop, and even other sites. They also have an app.
    I got mine from Playstation Direct which really is luck of the draw because you are placed into a queue ahead of when they allow you to actually put the console in your cart. I wish every site would have done that. Gives everyone a chance, eliminates the bots (I'd assume), and you don't have to panic when going through the checkout procedures that they are going to disappear because you have a time limit to get all that done. Just happened to get lucky enough to only have a 3 minute wait when they released and I checked out in probably 4 minutes. And of note, I bought it on a Thursday and they had it shipped out on Friday. It was supposed to arrive on that Sunday but with the crap weather it was delayed. Still got to me on Monday (President's day). Pretty awesome how smooth the process was and well done by FedEx ha.
    Just something I noticed:
    It definitely looks like the stands are a placeable item, or they seem to be anyways. Worst case, they are height adjustable which leads me to believe they are also placeable. The height adjustment is great though, especially if we decide to have a "green monster" we can place seats on the level with the top of the wall. Instead of having people sit behind a fence and not be able to see anything. I wonder if the 2 or 3 tier outfield seats will also be height adjustable? They seem to be from some of the clips, but I wonder how much? Imagine 3 tier stands on top of a 40 ft wall. Would be interesting for sure.
    I'm also curious if we'll be able to add logos in places or set certain spots that can have a logo for one of our sponsors when in franchise. I hope we can place things like that, at least for offline stuff. I can understand they wouldn't want that for online with potentially offensive or inappropriate things, but offline should be free game.
    Even if we share a stadium, I think a way around it would be us being able to place sponsorship spots and then we can put custom logos once we're in franchise mode itself, and then can't share the stadium at the point? Or just lock it from being shared in general once a custom logo is placed anywhere in the stadium. Makes you wonder how all of that will work if that's possible.
    All in all, I am just way too excited to be able to play around with this and make my HS field, 1966 Angels Stadium with the Big A in center, to some crazy stadium with weird dimensions. This is probably the most excited I've been for The Show in a very long time.
    Pair this with proper expansion and possibly even re-alignment or even change how many teams there are (like if I want to make the 12 team NPB for instance), it would basically take my excitement to the moon. I won't expect that, but I can dream right?
    Edit: just realized I could potentially make Koshien Stadium in Japan if all dirt infields are an option :D

    With grass or turf since Toronto trying to get a way from Turf

    I think you'd have to go with Astro turf if it were an option, it really "ties the room together" when capturing the essence of Exhibition Stadium.

    Really looking forward to laying down some rocket bunts in a stadium I designed myself.
    so true. Please Lord let us be able to play a little small ball this year and lay down some sacrifice bunts without being thrown out at 2nd!

    Does seating capacity in the stadium you build affect your bottom line? Can you create a team and customize the stadium to your team? I wonder what bugs will present itself. I am certain that when you create a game, certain object in the programming stage are used in conjunction with one another. Will the take this into account with allowing us to build a stadium with such a large amount of options. How will ball trajectory play into the objects? If I hit a homerun, will the ball bounce off of that created placed object or will it clip throw it? These are questions I would like answers to.

    If balls clip through objects over the fence I'd be shocked.

    the Show's made an offer I just can't refuse.problem is the ps5 availability. I'll probably get a ps5 somewhere between Christmas and spring training 2022. so I'll get the Show 21 at reduced fare for the ps5 and practice stadium building while I wait for Show 22 to release
    Please excuse me if this has been answered. But can you create a stadium to replace a current team's stadium in franchise mode or even just for play now games?
    Thanks.

    Nothing has been set in stone aside from being able to use the stadiums we create in franchise and Diamond Dynasty. I can only imagine, at the bare minimum, we'll be able to create (or download from the vault) a stadium, and then change what stadium one of the teams play in in franchise. We'll have to wait for the streams for them to tell us if it'll be one or all stadiums we can replace, or if we'll be able to use them in exhibition mode or RTTS as well.

    Looks very promising. I sure hope that moving the fences back actually affect home run totals. So,e other baseball games have home runs coded to be irrelevant of distance. What I mean is, if the game is coded where you lined up all variables (perfect contact, high player ratings, perfect timing, etc) the game would code to say “home run” regardless of distance so if u had a 460 ft center field like some classic stadiums had, it would be a home run regardless of distance.
    I imagine the show doesn’t suffer that problem but with the adjustable fences, I sure hope that doesn’t become a thing.
    Very excited for this !

    Good thinking. Polo grounds seems to have behaved itself in previous games (not sure about 20 with P/Ps like you said) but I would expect it to be similar in 20. Therefore I’d imagine similar behaviour in custom stadia.

    Looking forward to recreating the King Dome.

    we live in a crazy topsy-turvy world, deconstructing one monstrosity in the southeast only to reconstruct it in the northwest.

    Has it been confirmed you can create domes too?
    Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    No, hasn't been confirmed. I'd like to know that also, along with retractables. It could be accomplished with a roof set piece.
    I decided to make my own analysis video about the little we've seen so far. I kind of come from the other side... what we may be limited to in this mode's first year (such as the possibility of no domes). This is only based on what we've seen, so there is any chance in the world that we will be shown much, much more flexibility and customization down the line.
    And away I ramble!

    that was excellent, a true deep dive. I think you touched on everything but one thing that I noticed. I see they have Easy stadium construction and Pro stadium construction. I didn't see if there were more. I saw this in the last 4-5 minutes.
    whenever I finally upgrade next-gen, I'll definitely start w/Easy and get good at that before I advance, especially with how deep the construction goes. I do hope it isn't too steep a learning curve when it comes to all the fencing options because that will be the meat & potatos for me, where I'll spend most of my time.
    one last thing, I hope makes it into the editor relates to the infield portion. like at the Tigers Comerica, the ''keyhole'' dirt strip connecting the mound to the batters box. that was at the D'Backs Chase Field up until a couple years back. also at the Jays Rogers Centre about 5 or 6 years ago they had dirt ''sliding pits'' at the bases before they went to an all-dirt infield for 2016 . anywho, I hope those 2 things make it in, plus custom signage on outfield walls.
    FWIW the average mlb stadium seating capacity is a shade or two under 43,000
    MLB caliber stadiums ought be over 30,000 & minor league parks ought be under 20,000 & probably a minimum 4000-5000

    I noticed this while I was recording, but talked right over my mind seeing it because I was on a roll with whatever I was saying. I do wonder what that's all about.

    This seems to be in. One of the parks had this, and I mention it at the end of my video.
    I'm really curious about bullpen placement. So far it seems they can only be placed in foul territory, which is quite opposite of what pretty much any park today does. I understand why they kind of maybe have if this way for now, but it certainly is interesting to note.
    EDIT: Also, at 22:15 it was killing me where that batter's eye was from. I knew I knew it from somewhere, but I naturally said Detroit because they have some of that ivy or whatever but we already saw theirs in a different park. I believe this one is at Guaranteed Rate Field (Chicago).
    I don’t know if it was answered before but is Stadium Creator only for Season or Franchise modes and not for Play Now? I’m a casual player who only plays 2-3 games a week on Play Now, the All-Star Game and the playoffs in October mirroring the real bracket. I’m debating if I should upgrade to a XSX or PS5 just for this so I can create some Florida Spring Training stadiums.

    We don't know yet, insofar as they haven't specifically mentioned Play Now as having it or not. Personally I would be very surprised if it wasn't, as I can't really imagine the stadium select process before every game being any different across the modes (RTTS being the lone exception as you can't choose your stadium there in '20).
    If stadium creation is done from its own main menu option, then it's probably good for Play Now. If it's done from inside Franchise/DD....then it might not be.

    I’m just like you man. I don’t have time to play franchise with work and normal life these days so I’m a casual player who only plays Play Now/Exhibition mode.
    I fear they may waste this mode and not make it available in play now like they should. Usually when something makes a lot of sense I’ve noticed they stray away from it lol. Case in point - Online franchise. Moronic to remove that from the game and then they bring it back without the ability to use custom rosters (which was the reason it was so amazing originally).
    I really hope I’m wrong though. Adding this to play now mode would be an absolute game changer for me.

    I definitely don't expect retractable roofs but where the video said something like ''multiple stadium kits to choose from'' (can't recall exact phrasing) I'm assuming that will mean like a cookie-cutter stadium kit, a dome kit, maybe a fantasy stadium kit, a cityscape retro type dealio and whatever else. but that's pure speculation on my part right now. still, I can't imagine a dome being left out.
    which leads me to my next wondering: I wouldn't be surprised if to make room for build-a-stadium, the ps5 version doesn't have the classic stadiums ps4 has. when the ps4 released for Show 14, classic stadiums didn't appear on the ps4 until 16, even though ps3 14 & 15 had those classic stadiums. I'm fairly certain I'm remembering the ps3 14 & 15 right and I'm 100% positive that's how ps4 14 & 15 went

    Maybe, maybe not. In my deep dive video, I only saw blue seats as well. I'm guessing those can be altered, though.
    In a way, that almost could bode as good news, because maybe all we saw was "tip of the iceberg" kinds of stuff.

    Great deep dive really thorough.
    I’m curious about the bullpens mainly. I have a hard time believing they will be locked to the foul territories but no field shown has otherwise. That’d a big bummer if that were the case.
    I think you’re right about being able to rise/lower the stands so that your first row isn’t 10 feet about the wall (if you want).
    Based on the depth they’ve shown I think we will be seeing a wide range of outfield configurations and props and stands which I’m really excited about.
    I also would imagine they are keeping some stuff secret (seat colors, advertisements/logos) until the livestreams/release day
    Haven't read through the whole thread, but do we know whether or not we can have ads/signage on the outfield walls? While I would much rather go back to when stadiums had team logos and such on the walls, they look pretty bare without anything on them. Just curious if that has been talked about.

    I'm kinda thinking that if domes or retractable roofs were in Stadium Creator this year, we would have seen at least a half second clip of it.... I can't imagine it'd be too difficult to throw in at least 4 or 5 different dome and/or retractable roof set pieces to use though.
    Maybe this is a 'year two' type update?

    Yes, yes I do. I am proven right more than I am proven wrong. The video game industry is garbage right now and in no way consumer friendly. To think otherwise is naive. Hopefully I am proven wrong. But I doubt it.

    If you want to get all serious about it, you’re talking about an industry that sells dopamine highs to little kids and manchildren for cash. How “consumer friendly” do you expect them to be? It’s not 1983 where these companies are geeks in their basements making geek games for other geeks. This industry is psychological alcoholism and has been for decades already.

    I noticed easy and pro as well. I'm wondering if easy is either preset dimensions to choose from, or alter whole sections (left, center and right) instead of more precise adjustments (like what they showed that one section that was like a cutout in center).
    I do hope that artificial turf and sliding pits will be an option so that I can create Veteran's Stadium and those other astroturf ballparks from the 70s.

    I’m just guessing here ( for what it’s worth) but i have a feeling they’re reusing the components already found in all ( or most ) of the existing stadiums. So maybe artificial turfs from the TB & Tor may be reused !! ( fingers crossed). Same with old style “in playable foul territory” bullpens: Oakland Coliseum and Tropicana Field

    But it would probably be an aesthetic only. It's doubtful that it would bounce differently or you would get more injuries or anything like that.
    Still waiting on different ground physics from the dirt and grass in these games.
