The following changes have been installed for the football simulation:

- Added a time strategy setting to the Kicking Strategy page for last-second field goals with timeouts remaining defaulting to 8 seconds

- Added strategy page for penalty handling

- Fixed the issue that caused most third-down offense penalties to be accepted

- Fixed penalty handling by defense when offense has lost yardage on the play

- View College players by Class now defaults to senior QB's rather than all freshmen.

- Fixed stats not being recorded for penalties enforced from the succeeding spot

- If you view the Scoreboard page for a week in the future, it will now show you the matchups for that week along with a comparison of the offense of each team.

- Added Dome support

- Adjusted DE's to be created a bit better and improve a bit better

- Adjusted Best Role calculations for out-of-position Best Roles to eliminate some false positives

- Fixed roster page to not allow an owner to reduce the active roster below 40 players or claim more than 73 players before the draft.

- Empty roster slots under 53 players are charged 385 per empty slot against the salary cap (to be effective week of January 20th)

- Roster page warnings and starter indicators now take into account waiver claims

- A number is now displayed on the draft pick trade page indicating the draft order

- A bug has been fixed hat was preventing strategy adjustment sliders from working

If you have any questions or problems, please let me know.

I think you haven't picked up the updated menu file yet, you may need to reload your page or empty your cache to get it.

And I can probably adapt some of that code to open up a whole bunch of defensive stats in the near future.

I love the off and def averages in the future weeks screen. But there is a slight problem. The passing averages are based on gross passing yards and not the net. Not to be picky as the change is amazing but yards lost on sacks isn't being factored, not to mention the NFL works off of net. Regardless, it super sweet, just wished it worked off net passing yards. Really cool!





Lifetime record 345-146-1 (.702) as of 09/14/2014
30 Seasons and parts of 2 other seasons
26 Playoff Appearances (31-22 playoff record)
20 Division Titles
8 Conference Titles
4 Sim Bowl Titles

I've run into a number of people using multiple accounts, it is a common problem. I am sure I haven't found them all, so if you are aware of one, please let me know.

Being greedy:
Any chance for the total yards (O/D, P/R,T), stats to be included in the standings page? or at least in the stats page?

Thanks for those changes!

Doesn't look like this setting change was mentioned:

Never punt within -- yards of the goal line, unless there are more than -- yards to go.

Also, love the future scoreboards, have one suggestion though... I think it'd be way better if the bars would represent:

green = above league average
yellow = around league average
red = below league average

As it is now its just kind of confusing and obsolete. Its easier to just look at the numbers to see which is higher/lower, the bars seem kind of useless and cluttery. If it went by league average it'd make a lot more sense imo.

oh, that was the answer... I was wondering how those bars could be useful and yep, that's it.
League average.

The changes are actually on the Scoreboard page. there is a row of tabs for each week now, and picking a week in the future shows you the matchups for that week.

The Bar Colors are based on how you match up against your opponent.

For example, lets look at the picture above, and the Matchup between Carolina and Florida (Bottom Left)

Carolina's Bar is Red, because at 225 Passing Yards, its less than Florida's 250 Passing Yards. However, Carolina has better numbers in every other catogory, so the rest of its Bars are Green, where Florida;s is Red for being worse than Carolina's.

Yellow is like a tie/push.

Ah, I see. So when I look at my matchup with you tomorrow, the fact that I see three red bars for my team and only one green bar should make me sweat, correct?!
