This sounds like a really cool project. How do you plan on simulating the seasons and keeping track of everything?

 

It's basically a spreadsheet game - I am not much of a programmer, so I've constructed a rule set with simplified player ability values (alongside a more complex algorithm for development/aging/injury) and then a very simplified season resolution methodology.  I've played Championship Manager of course - it has me do a lot of stuff that I'm not all that interested in.  What I like are the building of leagues and movement of the teams up and down in them, and random player generation, so I have always intended to simulate the seasons pretty quickly.  However, the sheer number of players I need to generate is going to probably prevent me from getting to any actual simming for a long time.  I could do that task more quickly, but I kind of enjoy the process.  Just using Excel and Access for now to keep track of records.

 

Completing the creation of teams is a more realistic task in the short run, up to 15% done now and about to work on the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex which will have about 43 teams.  The more I keep reading this forum, the more I want to try to post some team designs.  We'll see.

Just imagine if the NFL didn't monopolize [American/Gridiron] football...

 

*scratch that*

 

Just imagine...instead of the NFL...you get not one, but TWO gridiron leagues to fill your pigskin appetite.

 

Fall League (Working title)

The Fall League (or whatever I end up calling it) caters to old-school fans, mostly an older crowd, that prefer the classic, physical, smashmouth kind of football.

NOTE: The cities listed are not yet finalized.

Spring/Summer League (Working title)

If you want a more fun, free-wheeling, footloose kind of football, the Spring/Summer League is right for you!

NOTE: The cities listed are not yet finalized.

Current thinktank problem I have right is.... how do you make a NFL concept out of a team that lasted two years (KC Scouts)

I'm thinking of taking on an enormous project, but lack the knowledge to complete it as it deserves. NYC has 5 boroughs with 329 neighborhoods. I'm considering a soccer crest for each neighborhood. If there's a better way to group neighborhoods to cut down on the total number or if you feel like you'd have some valuable input please let me know and I'll add you to a google sheets doc.
