These are some things I would like to see in TE, maybe not for TE2006 but for TE2007... :D

- A realistic Doubles simulation: in my game, Federer-Gaudio is the best couple, they play even more doubles tournaments than singles! It would be great if we could see Bryans, Bjorkman, Mirnyi, Knowles, Nestor dominating doubles while Federer, Nadal, Safin, Nalbandian do the same in singles.


- Wild cards: In Mexican Open, I would like to see -as in real life- wild cards for Mexican players (I'm Mexican and a WC is the only way one of us can play our Open...). The same for -by example- Del Potro and Massa in Buenos Aires. If there is a tournament from a country that doesn't have enough players in the database -like Doha-, well, the WC could be for the 2 or 3 best non-top 100 players in last month.


- More Challengers (and Futures): Yes, it's easy to reach top 100 in easy levels, but in the highers it's really hard (at least for me :D), so having more Challengers and Futures helps a lot. Also, with 125 tournaments a lot of players just play one or two per year. I think the game is not only about reaching #1, I like to see how other players do.

I edited my Tour.ini and now I have 170 tournaments (All Challengers from last season and between 15-20 Futures, I think). It's fun -and more realistic- to play just Challengers and Futures for some months and then go for IS, TMS and GS. Almost all players compete in at least 5-8 tournaments per year.

No, players like Federer play 20-30, as in real life.

What I mean is: there is a lot of players (under top 150) who spend the year playing Qualys (and failing to reach tournament) because -I think- there is not enough Challengers and Futures for them, so they finish the season with a very few tournaments played.

I exaggerated a little when I said "a lot just play one or two". Just 5-10 play so few. But, if we check ATP rankings, even players who are on #400 or #500 play at least 10-15 tournaments per year. I would like to see the same on TE.

Hello,

"A realistic Doubles simulation"
yup, it'd be nice. :)
Maybe for TE2007...


"Wild cards"
It's already there since the v1.0b !! ;)


"More Challengers (and Futures)"
I won't change this, coz it's almost easy for users like you to add them if you want.
But for other users, I prefer to not have more than 3 tournaments per week, I think it's more user friendly...

I mean Wild Cards for CPU players. This would help to have a little bit more realistic draws.

If this is already in 1.0b, please tell me how to activate it because I've never seen a WC for another player than me... :lol:

Yup, it is there for CPU players.
Maybe it's coz of your changes in the player base, but normally, in almost every tournament, you should see from 1 to 5 players with the WC flag.

If you changed your TourCategory.ini before the v1.0b and you're still using the same one after updating to v1.0b, then you should add this line to each category :
NbWildcard = 4
Not all categories have 4 WCs, look the originial TourCategory.ini to know the number of WCs.

It's weird, I'm pretty sure I didn't edit TourCategory.ini but it wasn't updated... anyway, I've added the line you said and it works, thanks!
