First round of email turns all sent out.

I noticed some errors in the international tables which I will sort before week one begins, if you notice anything else let me know, thanks...

Brilliant, thanks Paul.

I have noticed last few weeks but it hasn't really been worth mentioning, that the TRAINING GROUND TACTICAL REPORT for the international sides seems incomplete.  The full Brazil side only have a select few players on there and there are no players from the U21 squad on theirs at all?  Normally wouldn't be bothered but when training a new tactic it would be handy to see.  

Thanks

Ive sent new TT reports for both BRA and BRU let me know if they still have issues.

Perfect, thanks for taking the time.

First check through seems fine, apart from in the Tour and CCs games I seem to be playing a mixture of FAP and FRE. Should be FAP, but at the end of games, sometimes it says I've been playing FRE - so a little confusing...
(I don't change tactic mid-match).

I'll check buildings and fin matters later. Andy.

Tour games are considered to be full games played with your first team so would use your FAP setting but you have FRE as your friendly tactic and Challenge Cup games are friendlies.

Jeez, you've explained that to me before (probably last season!), but I recorded it wrongly in my notes! Idiot...

"FR Friendlies which uses the friendly team
CC Uses friendly team
FY Youth friendlies uses the youth team
FT Free Tours that use the first team
TO Tours which also use the first team"


Not sure if SB friendlies still exist (or ever did!)?
And not sure what the difference is between TO and FT?

Are these (corrected) notes now correct P?

Quick question on buildings...

Is 101% effectively double the efficiency of 100% and if so is the cost of equipping to that double the cost of 100%. So for example, Training Centre would be an additional £25m to get to 101%?

Buildings that produce profits, like internet cafes, are a straight percentage increase in profits BUT other buildings like training centres are not straight percentage increases, so doubling the amount of equipment in a training centre will not double the speed that players are trained up at, but it will increase tangentally.

So for profit making buildings 101% = 200% profit and 102% = 300% profit etc.

building at 100% effectiveness requires 100% of equipment
building at 101% effectiveness requires 200% of equipment

sorry this is confusing so many people but the effectiveness field is limited to 3 digits and with up to 20 buildings to amalgamate would have caused numerical overflow once we past 9 buildings.

I assume TO is when you arrange a tour yourself during the season whereas FT is a generous freebie at the end of the season?

FY and TO are no longer in use. FR CC and FT are correct. SB never existed.

We use to have FR@30p TO@free and FY@30p. The FR is now free because we no longer have a printer that needs supporting and I kept the FR because that fits nicely with friendly and free friendly. FY games can still be played free of charge now by drafting youths into your friendly team. TO became FT because a lot of managers didnt realise Tours have always been free, so I felt FT would emphasis that a bit.

Paul, had a closer look at my game tactics this week, and they are confusing:

The FT games should be using the lge team and lge tactics - they were using FRE, which is my FR tactic.

The CCs are weirder...they should be using FR team and FR tactics:
Strongbow - FAP in semi and final (should be FRE)
Bells Wh - FRE in both matches, fine
Rose - FAP in both (should be FRE)
Cotes Du - FRE in semi (fine), FAP in final (should be FRE)

Confused...Andy.

Ok I checked this section of logic and I did find some issues in the reporting code which has made it report the friendly tactic in the wrong place for some home teams. Havent touched that section of code for years so Ive reprogrammed it and it should be reporting the correct tactic now for all teams who have played CC games.

I also simplified it so Tour games and Challenge Cup games now use first team and first team tactics for both home and away teams. Friendly home teams still use friendly tactics as normal.

Thanks for the feedback.

2am! That’s either a hell of a commitment to the game or more a case of not being able to sleep following City’s performance last night?

Wonderful, thanks Paul.

These are my notes then:

"FR Friendlies which uses the friendly team and FR tactic
CC Uses league team and LGE tactic
FT Free Tours that use the league team and LGE tactic
 
*You could train up YTHS and SCHBYS by putting them into FRs."

 
Hopefully, this is correct now? Andy.

Minimal changes for my sides, so in theory I should be ready for the new season but I never feel confident.....

Nantes gone through the biggest change but early signs are decent....cue a defeat first game!
