Prospect Lists

I would like to be able to see larger list sizes going from Top 100 to Top 200 prospects list and a top 40 list for each team.

Someone mentioned that a lot of these requests are rather particular to customization etc...and after reading through these, I can see what they meant. And it is always cool to get some of those worked-in if possible.

I have already mentioned that I want to see continued work on the AI and 3D, but I also think the text in the trade screens, and player negotiations needs to be updated / upgraded and expanded; it is more optics than anything, but I see the lack of variation etc...causing some questions at times in the forums.

Removing Houston's 1st and 2nd rounders in the next two drafts.

Lightbulb tournament qualification & MiLB affiliate changing

I may be super late to this but I think a great idea would be to introduce qualification for tournaments like WBC and the Olympics. In every game I start, spend a good couple hours setting up the WBCQ and then end up switching entries manually.

Also, maybe introduce a way to switch affiliates between franchises. Like setting Syracuse to the Yankees and Scranton to the Mets or something.

Also, add a way to create a minor league system for expansion teams that is not automatically putting 2 affiliates in the same league (i.e. NY-Penn getting 4 new teams for 2 expansion franchises). I'd like to be able to add a team like Edmonton to the PCL without having to move an automatically created team from the IL.


Edit - Also, maybe add a way for organizational players to play in winter leagues without having to leave their original team. This would allow for Latin winter leagues and a better version of the Australian Baseball League.

In the players history section I would like to see noted that players first major league hit (single, double, etc...) and the pitcher he hit it off of. Same with his first homerun.
Can also have firsts for pitchers. First major league win, for example. Don't need to go overboard on this, just the major advents would be nice.

Trash can schemes and option to juice your players. Also random drug tests.

An option to include historical minor players in random debut mode. The trade off would probably have to be dumping everybody into the free agent pool at the start of the year and having all the teams battle for free agents (unless you're running a draft in your league), but if you're already doing random debut you'll probably be able to overlook that. I certainly would.

I think this would be a big win for historical debut, especially if you wanted to run lower quality leagues alongside MLB.

Important game or milestone moment.

When using real time sim or simming ahead one or more days the game should automatically pause and inform us of something important about to happen. Only if we have this on of course.
Things we might want to see, like a possible no hitter, cycle, pitcher has x amount of strikeouts, hitter has chance for 500th hr, 3000th hit or maybe other criteria we can set it to stop for.

Previous versions used to have something like this for no hitters and possibly other things.

Audio PBP.

That is, Audio PBP similar to Tony La Russa Baseball 3: 1996 Edition

I never thought I would say this for short-term wants, but yesterday I stumbled across this video in a baseball recommendation.

Here is the link.


Really does hold-up well. Mel Allen was the announcer. When I saw that video, my first thought was OOTP.

A couple respected announcers retired in the last few years like Joe Angel and Fred Manfra, who used to co-call the games together for Baltimore, and it would be great to get a team like that to do the PBP.

I know this is an aspirational wish, which seems odd after I mentioned that I want OOTP to focus on the big three....the AI, 3D, and game engine, but hey, perhaps in a future version.

In the modern view the "scoring updates" box was taken off of the top of the "out of town scores" widget. Please either put it back or maybe better yet make it it's own widget.

I never used it until v18 and it quickly became one of my favorite things in OOTP. Being able to see all types of things in real time adds so much immersion to one's league. My only old screenshot from v18 only shows simple scoring but all kinds of info comes up in this box in real time. There are too many things to list that this box can show...here's just a few...

of course all scoring in real time
Player X just hit his 3rd homer of the day
No hitter in progress at the start of the 6th inning
Player B just struck out his 15th batter
and it goes on and on.

Left out of v19 and XX.
Hopefully this makes a return for v21.

Cool Suggestion for OOTP 21

In the transactions "=", I would like to see a drop down added with contract and options used information.
