OOTP X Catch-All

This is my first OOTP since 11, so for me the UI is a revelation. Much, much improved. I started a standard MLB game and have mucked around a bit, but most of my time so far has been spent on an historical 1988 replay. Need to get the Mets the ring they deserved that year.

I'll probably wait a few more weeks to see if there are any major bugs before starting on a fictional universe with all the fixings.

Yeah, with the lack of baseball on the Xbox, I will probably dive back into this.

Oh yeah? Time to point this out, again.

I've 'Quick Start' with 2014 rosters for about 20 games. Simmed and play-by-play. Imported my 2014 fictional game. Downloaded 2014 all in one mod. Everything seems to be working well. I'm not hardcore for anything beyond this. Seem's pretty clean and some getting use to where things are now from previous versions. But once familiarized, definitely cleaner, 'easier' UI. Some reports from hardcore folks about bugs when you get really down and dirty with things. But that is the usual deal in new release and Markus and team are usually on them quickly (already a patch within a few days of release). But 'basic' game seems rock solid to me and my needs.

I just realized if someone new read my above text it's way too cryptic.

'Quick Start' is the way to play MLB with current rosters

All-in-One mod is one you can get from in the game in the 'mod central' (among others). This particular one put's correct MLB emblems etc. on player's and team pages.

If you want more information on the game you can go to the OOTP website for the forum on OOTP 15 (newest release):

Or click the link Garion gives below to read the last few pages on some new aspects of the new version (pizzaaddict mentioned some nice ones), or to just enjoy reading GWJ'er's with their adventure's in league play. Fun!

I was reading that thread earlier today and felt tempted to ask to join, but the week of a new OOTP release is always a bad time for me to do that. My commitment level to the league I'm already in comes in fits and starts, so probably not wise to add another one until I really decide I'm all in OOTP15. (I assume you're all upgrading to it at some point?)

We upgrade sometime after the real All Star break. So, whenever a season ends after the game goes on sale for the first time.

And that was really a rule I came up with based on some... erm... slightly unrealistic ideas of what the response would be to the league. As far as I'm concerned, if you're not "just signed up to the site" new, you can hop on in to our league whenever you'd like, if you're okay with it.

You're misunderstanding, Pred. We were talking about upgrading to OOTP15.

What Pred is talking about is the rule for joining he used to have, which is no longer true. Basically, if you want to join, PM him and you're pretty much in whenever (outside of taking over a team during the playoffs and that sort of nonsense ;)).

I picked up 2014 through the humble bundle. Is anyone active with that or will I have to stick with Single player?

The GWJ league has moved on to OOTP 15, but you can probably find some multi-player leagues by heading over to the OOTP forums.
