Going to try consolidating certain threads

This thread will have a list of teams and leagues in certain saved games/dynasties of mine, at least, as I try to plan out my ideal sporting universe as best as I can here.

I will list teams by league and/or sport, and note whether I think I have enough sets/looks for them as the thread develops, as best as I can. Certain teams and/or leagues I may have enough items for, in my opinion, and others may not. If I don't have enough at certain times, I will note that, and state how many looks I may need for teams and/or leagues at such times.

This list will be quite long, ultimately, and links to other threads and/or posts of mine or related to me may be included at times, just so you know. It may also list teams and/or leagues in sports not currently covered by Out of the Park Developments, or likely to be covered by them in the near future.

Where noted, this thread may also serve as a request thread for certain teams and/or leagues, at times, which the rest of you can fill or not as you each so choose, in your timing, et cetera, of course. But it won't necessarily be just a request thread here, either, I expect. I will try to produce certain items myself, but I'm not exactly the best at doing such things, at least artistically, I think.

I will start off with my ideal National League setup, and then proceed from there as the need or desire or mood strikes me. I will definitely need more sets/looks for certain teams than I will for others, of course, even with the classic teams, I'm sure. I have looked for a number of teams in various leagues, and/or for a number of leagues, mind you, but some of the looks I've seen here so far in the forums are not exactly what I may be looking for here, in truth, for certain teams and/or leagues.

National League:

Boston Braves (Could use post-1952 items for them, I'm sure, at least)
Brooklyn Dodgers (Post-1957 items would be nice, at least)
Chicago Cubs (May have enough items at present, but not quite sure yet)
Cincinnati Reds (See Cubs note)
New York Giants (See Dodgers note)
Philadelphia Phillies (See Cubs note)
Pittsburgh Pirates (See Cubs note)
St. Louis Cardinals (As a Cards fan, probably not enough at present)

American League:

Boston Red Sox (See Cubs note)
Chicago White Sox (See Cubs note)
Cleveland Indians (See Cubs note)
Detroit Tigers (See Cubs note)
New York Yankees (See Cubs note)
Philadelphia Athletics (Post-1954 items would be nice, at least)
St. Louis Browns (Post-1953 items besides No Pepper's would be nice)
Washington Senators (Any post-1961 or post-1971 items would be nice)

Federal League (My ideal, inc. league looks esp. pre-1913 & post-1915):

Chicago Whales (Post-1915 items would be nice, or pre-1913-1914 ones)
Florida Marlins (Post-2011 items would be nice, or pre-1993 ones)
Milwaukee Brewers (Post-1997 items with them in AL, or pre-1970 ones)
Montreal Expos (Post-2004 items would be nice, or pre-1969 ones)
New Jersey Generals (Enough for now, but that will change, I think)
New York Metropolitans [Mets] (See Cubs note)
Tampa Bay Devil Rays [Post-2007 items would be nice, or pre-1998 ones)
Toronto Blue Jays (Pre-1977 items would be nice, esp. circa 1900-1920?)

Continental League (My ideal, inc. league looks pre-1961 and post-1970):

Arizona Diamondbacks (Pre-1998 items, especially circa 1900-1920?)
California Angels (Pre-1965 items, especially circa 1900-1920?)
Colorado Rockies (See Cubs note, especially pre-1993 and circa 1900-?)
Houston Astros/Colt .45's (See Cubs note, esp. pre-1961 & c. 1900-?)
San Diego Padres (There may be enough out there now, but not sure yet)
Seattle Mariners (Pre-1969 items would be nice, especially circa 1900-?)
Texas Rangers (Pre-1972 items would be nice, especially circa 1900-?)

A potential American Federal Baseball Union league logo with possibly multiple options for years ranging from 1900 to the present would be nice as well, I think. Colors/looks likely optional at this point, it seems to me.

More teams and leagues, and/or links to follow, in time, I'm sure. CD out.

If anyone has made or knows of already-made sets for certain teams and/or leagues I may mention or have already mentioned may be, which I and/or others may possibly not be aware of, or may have forgotten about, at present, please feel free to let us all know, okay? Thanks in advance if you do, then, folks. CD out.

Eugene is doing what he can to help me with my Slaabovian Republic League and my Cirriddiquan Kingdom Union, for sure. But these are still hoped for, at people's leisure and desire, in any case.

Even if they're not attended to anytime soon by anyone else, they are still hoped for here, in truth. If needed, I can wait a bit longer, of course. But I'd still really appreciate some periodical help or at least periodical notice on things related to any of all of the above teams, if I don't actually see updates or whatnot done for them first, please, folks.

Thank you all for your time and attention here, then, everyone. I wish you all well, Lord willing, of course, most definitely. CD out.

CD, please listen to me and take my advice... this is entirely too much to ask people to do... you are totally wasting your time with this type of lengthy, detailed requests.

You will be blessed if you can get a few logos done on this forum these days... there is no way you can get 40-50 teams done.

People are not going to do your work for you... you must find logos, jerseys and caps that have already been created... see the OOTP Mods Forum and see what is available there.

Do like I did... learn to use justafan's cap software, jersey software and logo software.

I still struggle with the software... but eventually I can only do average work, but it's better than nothing... it take me 2-3 hours to a set of logos, jerseys and caps for one team.

The best place to look for a helping hand is at the end of your own arm.

I don't mean to be tough on you, but this is the way the world is.

God bless... I'm still your friend... and will continue to try and help you.

I'm going to mainly use this thread, I think, as a place to note which teams/leagues I likely have enough sets for, teams/leagues which may not likely have enough sets, and other teams/leagues I'd ideally have in my ideal sports universe, possibly in multiple game worlds. Even if I can't necessarily simulate the needed seasons and/or history of those teams/leagues using various games, or incorporate any number of other things into my ideal sports universe, that is, for various reasons.

Another thread I will soon likely create, if I haven't already created it, will be used for the related setting or settings those teams/leagues existed, exist, or will exist in, even if they are not all in the same exact game world/dimension/whatever. And/or the related histories and whatever else may be appropriate enough to include in said thread, while we're at it here, at any possible time or times.

Please do not consider this thread mainly as a request-based thread any longer. Although I may still request items/sets through it periodically, that will no longer be the case here, I'm quite sure. When I have enough sets for any of the teams/leagues listed above or anywhere below, at a particular time, I will note it as the need arises and as I can remember to do so well enough.

Instead, please consider this a thread meant mainly for the organization or listing of all the teams/leagues I'd likely want/need to have in my ideal sports universe, from now on, folks. Where there may be multiple versions existing of the same team or league names from various saved games/dynasties for any OOTP and/or FHM game, for instance, I will try to differentiate those versions from each other as the need and desire and all arises here, as best as I can, for sure.

This thread will be updated periodically as the need and/or desire and all arises, Lord willing, I'm sure. Thank you for your time, attention, patience, understanding, and everything else as well, then, everyone. CD out.

You are flooding the forum again. You have at least 6 open posts for requests in the top 10 or so at the moment.

Mods have already consolidated a lot of your posts and now you're bumping old ones.

It is a matter of time before you are banned and I, for one, can't wait.

i cant hold back any longer...CD i get you have to deal with life on a tougher road than most and for that i wish you the best. That being said, you are making the boards almost unbearable. I log in and see a flooding of post from you and i immediately log off. your requests are so specific, numerous, and far fetched that they will never get fulfilled. And if by some manner they do get fulfilled, I fear it will just make you want even more which scares me more than the IT movies! People are going to start asking the forum police to ban you and that would be a sad thing...im curious as to if you even play the game or just create an infinite number of world that are never to your liking enough to even play. You need to reel it in buddy...big time!

I do play, in truth, folks. And I have shown that in the past, through screenshots and all.

Very well, in the interest of trying to keep things peaceable and civil here, I promise I will hold off on making new requests for certain team-related sets, at least, for at least two to three months, if not longer. As for my existing requests, I will leave those up to the rest of you to choose to attend to or not, if and when you like and can, for at least that long. Fair enough?

I am truly sorry for upsetting you all. I never mean to, but it seems I still do anyway, unfortunately. And I don't want to use my AS as a possible excuse, so I won't. I'll just have to try to do better here with whatever I've got for life, and I do ask God for help with my problems, whatever they may be, as often as I can, for sure.

In the meantime, I will try to stay out of trouble here on the forums as best as I can, and also try to do more game-playing and work on any of my other writing projects and all that I have to work on in my life, for sure. Again, folks, I'm sorry for upsetting you all, and yes, your thoughts and comments are not without merit and without accuracy, generally speaking. I do not deny I can be and have been rather frustrating, to say the least, for many people, at times, both in my offline life and my online life. I will continue working on both lives as often and as best as I can with my Lord's help, for sure.

The time for my promise in regards to new requests begins now, and I fully intend to stick to it. Besides, I have a feeling I'm going to be very busy with various things very soon, both in my real life and in my online life, folks. I wish you all the best, in complete honesty, too, as the Lord wills for each and every one of you and for your respective friends and families.

And with that, I will close this post. There is nothing more I either want or need to say right now, I think, in regards to my currently-outstanding or to any future possible new requests, at least. CD out.

CD, thank you for trying to understand what we are saying on the Graphics Forum... thank you for your cooperation.

You have posted your requests... please stop bumping them.

Many of your requests were posted six months ago... if you got no response in six months, you are not going to get any response.

If no one responds, just let the request thread die... if no one is interested, there is no sense in bumping them.

It just clutters up this Forum and irritates the Community.

In the old days, this type of activity would have been swiftly banned by the mods. Seems like they're more patient these days.

CD, you should take a break from the boards and go enjoy the game. I don't see how you have time to play, considering the number of requests you post here.

As I said before, perhaps you should learn to make uniforms and logos yourself. That way you can make the stuff you want, when you want.

Just my 2 cents.

I am posting in my latest dynasty thread quite a bit the past few days. See my posting history since the above post from me just before EC's last post, if you wish. I also am thinking of making more uniforms, at least, soon, if I don't find anything else I think I can use well enough in certain dynasties/saved games in the near future.

I can't wait for my team that's currently in Providence to return to St. Louis, but looks like I will have to for at least one more year. Still have a few weeks or so left of the 1881 season for the Providence Grays, and we stink, in essence, at present.

I hope before we get back to St. Louis, and/or leave Providence, my team in MLB gets above .500 easily enough, and consistently enough. But chances don't look good as to that happening anytime soon, unless we're fortunate enough to get enough good players on the roster in the meantime.

I have six leagues currently going in my Cosmic Baseball 001 dynasty/saved game. and the 1881 season is in the process of winding up now, more or less. Those leagues are Major League Baseball, the Slaabovian Baseball Confederation, the North American Baseball Association, the Supreme Columbian League, the Elite Diamond Alliance, and the Slaabovian Intercollegiate Athletic Union.

The SBC is the main, if not only, predecessor league to the Slaabovian Republic League. The NABA started in 1876, and just finished its 1881 regular season. The Supreme Columbian League will finish its regular season soon. The EDA is almost done with its playoffs. The SIAU began this year, and there are not many teams created for it yet, but I will be using generic items I already have, if I don't make them, or do forum-digging for already-existing items/sets.

I am planning to create the first of a few college leagues for the United States that will begin play next season, so that I have more players being created from the US instead of just the fictional nation of Slaabovia, for instance. Although I haven't yet decided how many I will create at the start of 1882, for sure.

I currently have items for several known historical schools, but not many at present. I will be mining assorted threads and all for team sets, and I am likely to include items that you have made already in my attempts to find suitable enough teams to use starting next season for teams in an association I'm going to call the North American Collegiate Sports Association, AKA the NACSA.

Per my promise above, I will NOT be requesting team sets, at least, for some considerable length of time, to be sure. So you don't have to fear about that, ashantewarrier. Instead, I expect to be doing more playing and/or more writing, among other things in my life, besides reading my Bible daily and all, for sure.

Feel quite free to monitor what I do on the forums around here as you see fit, at least until you are satisfied enough that I'm keeping my word here, if you like. Thank you for your input and advice, and don't be surprised if you see more graphics coming to the forums from me, somehow. Although I may need to ask for advice on how to do certain things better, at least, I think, just so you and everyone else knows this well enough here, somehow.

Well, it's probably time for me to get back to work, I suppose, on any number of other things, whatever those things may be, folks. I expect more updates to my dynasty threads as time and all permits and warrants, at least, Lord willing. That's if I'm not otherwise occupied somehow with anything else in my life, whether online or offline, of course, that is. Please take care and God bless, not only to you all, but also to those around you all, as the Lord wills and all, I hope. CD out.

Ashantewarrier, you asked how I have time to play? I often have a lot of free time on my hands, when I'm not otherwise occupied. I spend a lot of it either web-surfing or writing or game-playing, if not reading or watching television or listening to music or anything else.

Granted, I'm not yet the best writer, and I'll probably never write a best-seller for a story or anything, but I can still write at least a little bit, in any case. Even though I can be rather verbose and rather detailed at times, as you and others have no doubt already seen here.

But I don't write to be famous, and I don't care if I'm ever what the world might call financially rich. I write because I feel I must, and because I want to try and use my talents as best as I can for the benefit of many, and most especially for the glory of God, as best as I can, in my imperfect mortal life, and all. It's like breathing to me, perhaps, even if I have problems with doing so at times, I still feel I must write whenever possible and all. Even though I often do get stuck on things, I do try to work my way through it, in whatever way or ways I can, for sure, as best and as often as I can, with the Lord's help and leading and all.

I have this tendency to dream big, as you've probably gathered by now, so that's probably why I have made so many requests in the past here. I don't know how much of that is because of my Asperger's Syndrome, for instance, but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it is because of it. I don't get out into the real world as much as I might like, for various reasons, so I probably have problems with certain things in my life, such as relating to other people at times, for instance.

It's not an easy life, especially when you can't drive, and do certain other things, for various reasons, including not being what many would consider well-off in many ways, but God still helps me and those around me all the time, I'm sure. And I am fairly content to let Him take care of us, as He sees fit, and I don't have to always have the newest things, et cetera, like many others may feel they must.

I have learned in my life that certain things are largely, if not entirely, transitory in nature, and every day that one can spend with loved ones is something to be treasured, and not taken lightly. I miss my brother, but when I consider how things were for him in this life with his profound autism and broken body and all, I am so thankful to know that he is now with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords forever, and that brings me great comfort many times, whenever I think of him.

I am also very grateful, to put it very mildly indeed, that my mother is still with us now, when she very well could have left this world near my birthday in 2018. God spared her, and she was very close to leaving, I must say. Thankfully, and with all praise and thanks to Him, I still am able to spend time with her in my life, and so are others around me, for sure. I can certainly never thank Him enough for preserving her life to this point, in any case, folks. Although it is quite likely that she will eventually depart this world before I do, I think, I will still treasure every day that I have with her, and with Dad, as well, among others, of course.

Well, that's enough for now, I think, in regards to this post. CD out.

Anything, and I DO MEAN anything, in me that is extraordinary, in goodness and all, is ONLY because of God's help and leading and all, including His grace and his wisdom, among other things, and not because of my own efforts or the efforts of any other mortal being, for sure, in my view. Without Him, and His help, at least, I would not be the man I am today in my middle forties, and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind about that being the case.

I am an imperfect human being simply because of the fact that I still have the ability to sin, whether I want to or not, at times, folks. But I have still accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour, and did that a long time ago, in fact. While I have sought Him and His ways ever since I was very young, probably before I was even ten years old, I still make mistakes quite often, unfortunately, whatever those may be at any time, and I have, no doubt, in the past.

I don't know exactly what the future will hold for me and those around me, much less America and the world, at least as of yet, of course. But it is clear to me, at least to a degree, that things are going to be a lot more dangerous and all, and probably much sooner than many may think, folks.

Now I don't want to really get into a philosophical debate with any of you at this point about certain things, but I am rather thankful that God has seen fit to grant America and perhaps other nations in the world at least a bit more time to repent of certain things that they and their respective peoples need sorely to repent for, whatever those certain things may be. Eventually, though, I know that He will ultimately lower the boom on many people and nations, and when He does, it won't be pretty, for sure. And I am very concerned that America, for instance, will be one of the nations He will most lower the boom on later on. I hope I'm wrong, to be honest, but I really don't think I am.

In the meantime, I will still continue to seek His face, and do His will in my life as best as I can, for as long as I can, while I still live on this planet of His that He created thousands of years ago, out of sheer nothingness. While I may not always do so as well as I should at times, et cetera, I still will seek His face to the best of my ability, as humbly as possible, whenever possible and all, and no doubt find Him, if I diligently seek Him and all. For I know that He resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble, among other things that He does in His infinite Universe.

And that's all I want to say here, I think, at least for this particular post, more or less. I wish all of you and all of yours, no matter who you are, or who they are, all the best possible, in each of your or their lives, as the Lord wills and all, of course, folks. Seek Him and His ways, and He will provide for you, even if the walking with Him makes your lives very difficult many times, I'm quite sure. Until later, then, everyone, I would like to say "Shalom," which can mean peace in Hebrew, among other things, as the Lord wills and all, to all of you and to all of yours, for your information. CD out.

please....enough is enough. your last few posts have NOTHING to do with this forum! not all of us are as religious as you...try https://www.christianforums.com/ when you feel the need to get religious please. lets leave these forums for BASEBALL related posts. If you want to post about your dynasty do so in that specific forum. We dont need to know you updated a different forum in every other forum. If we want to follow your dynasty we know where to find it. I know I am remarking on behalf of many who do not want to seem like a dick and post anything negative...but sometimes it just needs to be said.

I have tried to stick to more baseball-related things since my earlier promise, jparker. And I have been trying to keep things appropriate and all here, as well, and be respectful of others, even if they are not as interested in theological matters, et cetera, in their lives as I may be in my life. It isn't easy, mind you, but I still try.

However, I can't deny certain things about myself, and I'm trying to share more of myself with you all here, so that you can all hopefully better understand the kind of person I am, and also better understand what it's like for me to live my life as I do, et cetera. Now I realize that how I am currently doing so may make some people at least a little bit, if not a lot, uncomfortable, to be completely honest with you all, and I'm really trying to be as fair as I can here with everyone, believe it or not.

But sometimes I just have to express some thoughts and all before I get too frustrated with certain things and/or people in my life, I'm sure. Even if it may only be so that I might ask for advice on how I might reasonably deal with certain things or people in my life, for instance.

I'm sorry if my posts upset you, jparker, or anyone else, but I'm definitely trying to be as fair and as respectful to everyone else here just as much as I can be. Even though I'm sure it's quite likely that I'll never actually meet most, if not all, of you face-to-face in this life. I don't normally get to talk to a lot of people in real life in person, so my social skills are not always the best, in terms of relating to most people in my life. I hope you all can understand that well enough, and that it's not because I don't want to do better in social situations, because I do, in truth.

Listen, if you feel my posts are generally too much for you to take, then simply ignore me, if you like, whenever you like. But if you do, you may possibly miss something important later on in the future that I may say, no matter what it may be about. Or not, as the case may be. I'm trying to do better on the forums since my promise, and I will continue to do so, for sure. I am not perfect, not by a long shot, I admit, but at least I try to do better, whenever I know I've been in error well enough, I think, normally, whether in my online life or my offline life.

And with that, I will close this post, folks. Take this post as you each will, and all. I wish you and yours all the best, Lord willing, then, in any case, of course. CD out.

CD, what people are trying to simply say is you need to keep your posts short and concise and on-topic. This is an OOTP forum. If you’d like to share information about your personal life and your faith it needs to be done elsewhere. Maybe on a social media site or something else. Please keep any future posts short and keep them about OOTP. Also there is no need to respond to this post. Thank you.

QC, I have not requested anything for some time, since making my earlier promise not to do just that around here. I have instead been generally sticking to my own dynasty threads, or to other threads of mine, and not bumping others which have no need to be bumped and all now. And I have also generally been staying out of other people's threads, at least for the most part, since my earlier promise not to request anything from anyone, in terms of commenting on them.

If that is so, then don't you think it would be quite unfair to punish someone in such a manner who is really trying to stay out of trouble, and who is honestly trying to stick primarily to their own started threads, without also dominating other people's threads? Hypothetically, how would you feel if someone jumped on you without good reason, when you're just trying to get along and stay out of any trouble with everyone else, no matter who they may be? Listen, I get that you're likely quite upset that I made a lot of requests over a fairly good length of time, at least, and that many of them were certainly quite detailed in their descriptions and all.

But I have now promised not to make any requests for quite some time, as well. I found a lot of useful items within the last 24 or so hours, more or less. And I have now, on my own initiative, downloaded a fairly good-sized number of items that have been made for various teams, and am now using a good number of them. Most of them were quite well made by txranger, at least, I think. If I can't find something on the forums, or elsewhere, I will try to make it myself, if at all possible, for at least the time being, until at least mid-November, if not mid-December, per my earlier promise.

Now, I would rather get back to covering my latest dynasty as soon as I can, probably even picking up coverage of it again tomorrow, as best as possible, than to needlessly discuss things that have already been addressed here. I have been advised to hold off on any requests, for at least the time being, if not from now on, so any more discussion of such things is pointless and unnecessary, at least for the time being, I think.

We all have much better things to do than to potentially argue about most likely-settled issues, do we not, right now? I don't want to get into another quagmire of sorts here with people, I just want to be at peace with as many people around here as possible, no matter who they are around here.

And with that, while also saying that I bear absolutely no ill will or malice or hard feelings to anyone else here on these forums, no matter who they are, for ANY reason or reasons whatsoever, I will now quickly close this here post of mine. Take care, I hope, everyone. And may all of you and all of yours stay as safe as possible in the future, Lord willing, of course. CD out.
