Sim to specific date location

Playing as a commish, just watching the results opens my eyes to things that can be better.

I never press the continue button in the top right, cuz i really have no clue how far it's gonna go. That alone is kind of a fail for the game.

To advance, i rely on the sim to specific date option in auto play. The problem with that is it's alot of clicks and isn't located in an area that is easy for the user. Let me explain.

In the league schedule, the only way to see, well, the league schedule, i can navigate what im seeing by clicking next day, previous day, which is great. If i want to sim to the day im currently on, i have to move up to the top menu, click over to play, click on sim to specific date, which is always set to the current day, then change the date, and click ok.

That actually gets annoying after a while. Why not include a sim to today date on the league schedule(which will sim to the date im currently viewing), that with one click, on the actual screen, i can sim to when i want!

So, after viewing the schedule, seeing i want to sim 5 days ahead, and i navigate to the sim to specific date button, click it and the screen resets to the home screen. Why is the game changing what im looking at. If i wanted to be on the home screen, id be on the home screen. I'm on the league schedule screen. I want to see results. Don't automatically change my screen. That's gotten awfully annoying.

In general, i'd say the UI isn't great or too user friendly. I'll post some more things as i think about them, but this is one example that could be improved.

These are also OOTP problems. I have posted in their forums to improve the interaction with the calendar and add custom number of days to sim so that I can click one time to sim whatever number of days I set.

Yeah, you should be able to go to a date on the schedule screen, right click and select sim to this date.
