Improvement to league and schedule generator
 
Currently, if i want to create a new fictional league I have to choose from a set of preset league sizes and schedule limits. Will FHM3 allow more flexibility in terms of how many teams and how many games I can have.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to set the two factors independent of each other. (i.e. start a fictional NHL in 1931 with 12 teams playing a 44 game schedule and then expand and contract the league as time moves forward)

It looks like they have made no changes for fictional league functionality (from FHM2).


They've also said that a schedule editor/importer would not be added to FHM3. I don't know if they've said whether or not they will correct all the bad pre-defined custom league schedules from FHM2.

The pre-defined schedules are all original schedules that get used in one of the (historical) playable leagues.

In the specific example that I tried to use in FHM2 (8-team league with 0 conferences and 0 divisions), the pre-defined schedule had each team playing 78 games. This makes no sense at all (at best, each team plays 11 games vs the other 7 teams, with 1 game left over to play one of the 7?)!


And when I created the league and generated its schedule, there was no logic in how many games were played between the teams and what the home/away game splits were.


Can you tell me what historical league provided the schedule FHM2 used for the league I tried to create?


Sebastian, I would love to buy FHM3 (like I bought FHM2) if you could add (in an update, maybe?) a schedule editor/importer (or if FHM3 could handle manual edits to a schedule's XML file). But, right now, the game would be useless to me (in how I want to play it).


By the way, OOTP has had schedule editing/importing functions in the last several versions (at least as far back as 6.0/6.5). I would have to think that the design (if not the coding) of such functions in OOTP would be transferable to FHM.
