Hey, look kids!
I'm BAAAACK with another installment of DWMBS!
Okay, Part 2..
Hold on a second.
Okay. Here we go!
What OOTP 2007 needs in my opinion, besides a complete redesign of the awful interface that is, is a bit more realism.
I've always hated the fact that OOTP 6.5 didn't have rainouts, but I think 2006 took a step back, eliminating weather all together. It was, well, just wrong. I understand that they need to pull out some stuff to get the game released, but well, look where that ended up, in my opinion. (The pits is where, by the way...)
Let's face it, weather is a part of baseball, and somewhere out there, there has to be an analysis of the effects of the weather on games. Back before the invention of ballpark lights, lots of games were even called on account of darkness. For a baseball sim that wants to be realistic, this needs to be reflected in some way.
OOTP needs, at the very least, to have weather, weather that effects the way game are played, and rainouts. Really, really need to have rainouts.
Implementing a system that can allow you to reschedule games shouldn't be that hard. I mean, after 7 and a half versions, I think it's a bit overdue.
