OOTP 5 Info

As many of you know OOTP5 is currently in beta testing. The test team is quite busy giving the game a good workout. With this in mind there will probably be very few details emerging concerning v5 during this time. So don't take the lack of an answer concerning any specific questions you may have as anything more than the fact that we are busy testing.

OOTP5 info and details

- Improved interface, with hyperlinked player and team names
- Support for mouse scroll wheels for roster and statistics browsing
- Game will ship with three different interface 'skins'
- Most reports (including boxscores, etc.) will be displayed in eparate HTML windows (multiple windows possible)
- Interface sounds and music, in-game stadium ambient sounds
- Brand new A.I. engine, impacting financial model, player evaluation, trading and roster A.I.
- Manager mode replaces challenge mode; this mode allows you to be hired/fired and compile a career as a manager/GM. You may even date women, marry and build a family. If you are lucky you get a son that has baseball skills and will enter the draft pool when he's 18-22 years old. And be careful with your wife. A divorce is expensive!
- Enhanced minor league system with basic team W-L records, better reports and presentation. An option for required full minor league rosters will be there as well.
- More robust spring training period, possibly with simulated games
- Tracking of career minor league stats
- Tracking of career postseason stats
- Enhanced importing of historical seasons, featuring better ratings calculation (including park effects) and accurate OF positions, resulting in even more accurate historical stats!
- New player development algorithms
- Adding a "financial co-efficient", allowing users to adjust salary demands and financial numbers overall to historical leagues
- New team strategy settings, for example individual stealing tendencies, putting pitchers on pitch-counts limits etc.
- Numerous smaller enhancements, such as a player tracker, a sim multiple seasons option, easier league creation, a new overall player/prospect rating (1-5 stars), importing/exporting teams into a different league, player ratings in/exporter, schedule in/exporter, more reports, better news section with special reports like power rankings or minor league system ratings, rotation mode settings (strict or start #1 if rested) and lots more useful stuff.
