Thanks for the hints. Didn't think about letting them have holidays!
On the contrary, when my junior is on school holiday, this is where she gets extra training, just because I *am* a monster!
Excellent idea to be able to choose the starting court surface.
Regarding the micro-management aspects, all are very valid points ... but it gets in the way of testing
But I'll make sure to do that once I start my *real* game
I was wondering about the tournament locations.
If you choose a European base for your academy, it's just about possible to pick tournaments not too far in the first couple of seasons but you probably still need to cover from Finland/Estonia to Turkey/Lebannon/North Africa, but you can't then be picky about the surface you play on
I doubt if NorthAmerica or AsiaPac would be any easier.
I've not really looked at modding tournaments (I only tried to see if we could add the Petits As tournament but that seems way too difficult and probably not possible with the current engine) would it be feasible (i.e. no hard-coded limits) to expand the number of Futures & Type B & C?
