Making a Player

Is there a way to create a new player and if so, how do you get to that screen?

You can do this from the Free Agents, Draft Pool, and Show All Players pages. To create fictional players, click on the Create Fictional Player button at the bottom of the page. You will see a dialog box with a number of options:



Make sure you are in Commissioner Mode and when the game creates your player(s), write down the name and search for them and just go in and edit them.

this is a great feature, one of the ones that got me to buy the game in the first place. Only drawback is i've never figured out how to create a player for a specific team. They either go into free agency or the draft pool. (0r did i miss something along the way????) (I add Negro League players to the specific historical year i am playing so it's not critical for them to go to a particular team - just wondered if that were possible ....) Great feature and great game.

Once you create a player, while still in Commish mode, go to his editor tab. A little ways down the left side (just below 1st section) you can assign the player to a league and team.


At the bottom of the same side, you can assign him a contract.

Is what an option? Create a player?

It's been in OOTP for many versions. Put yourself in Commish Mode, go to the FA page. From "Available Actions" menu (top right), select "Create Fictional Player"

Been an option for many versions. Not sure if it was in 6.5 but has been since at least 11.

Make sure you are in Commissioner Mode, otherwise you won't see that option.

Can do this a few ways. Whichever league is going to have the fewest players, historical or fictional. Start either a historical league and create a mix of fictional players for the draft or as FA. Or create a text file using notepad of historical players you want to import as FA or into the draft. I use the Spritze database which gives me Negro Leaguers, PCL, Fed league and NPB. In my ABF league i have imported many historical players so far. Ruth has 1121 HR in that league using neutralized stats. Ujse either Bigrod's importer program or go to baseball reference and copy the player ID. and paste it into a notepad file with teh year you want to import them from.

See Bluenosers' post below mine it is on the Free Agents page upper right hand corner. I think you have to be in commish mode.
