Hi manutoo,

Big fan of TE2013 with about 800h on Steam
I play mostly online and I feel like players that serve 2 first serves (instead of a normal first serve and a safer second serve) are not punished enough with more double faults. A player can serve two first serves and do about 3 double faults per set which, in my opinion, is a bit too low. Maybe add something like a pressure variable in TE4 in which the success % of a second serve with the power of a first serve is lower?
Thanks and keep the good work! :)

How about bringing back the good old SCENARIO mode? Having the player thrown in to a mid-match situation where he's in a tough position and needs to pull through, like serving for the match and having 15-40 or something.

Hello,
Sorry if someone already said it...
But how about money ? Always found a bit strange, when new on tour, to travel so easily all around the world for a future tournament. I'd love to pay my plane ticket, hotel etc...to be at my top...or not...to recover well etc...
tons of possibility...I know it opens a whole lot stuff which could be difficult to set though.

Hi Manutoo

Is there a possibility that there are 2 courts per tournament? for example the central court and court Nº15, because if I am ranking 90 vs. Ranking 80, we will not play on the central court

DrVinz,
it's already all done => https://www.managames.com/tennismanager ... ;)

AlbertRoj,
yes, it's planned, but only for the Grand Slams. (Modders could add more courts)

Damn :)
And how about a trophy room, where we could see match points by clicking on trophies ? Unless it's in TEM too of course.
Anyway love TE for +10 years now (I seize the occasion), so good luck to finish this one.

hi is it possible to add steam achievements such as in finishing as world no 1 or winning all masters in your career? i think it would be nice to have more this time around (only if it's feasible)

DrVinz,
trophy room may come in a distant future.

incarly,
n°1 achievement is already in TE2013/TEM2. It's true it'd be nice to have more achievements, but it's not on the top priority list. :)

Hello Manutoo

Will there be more than 2-3 animations more than 2013 during the match? Sometimes will it be possible to strike by reverse reaching out with the opposite hand? I wish we could slide our feet on earth courts. :D I think the more animation in this game, the more legendary it will be. Good work :annoyed:

Re: [TE4] Female Face Customization : Feedback Needed

Will be able to see the games from the side view in TE4 rather than the current and constant back or front of the players? It would be great if this is possible.

1.I wish sometimes the bends could be bent, breaking the knees. I know that extra animation is required for this, especially on the low-bounce floor of the ball (Wimbledon). A difficult job. But I wish we could do that at te4. :(

2. 1-2 new service welcome animations :P
Google translate sorry...

It will be great if you can see all the cups won in any player's profile.

Re: Comments about TE4 Alpha Version

Postby Rob92 » 30 Aug 2020, 19:07

After a short time playing the alpha, here's a few observations/suggestions - I know gameplay/physics are still work in progress so I won't talk about the winner count/overall balance yet. Also I haven't read all this thread so apologies if any of this has been discussed already.

Talents system is a really good idea! It will allow for more variety and more accurate creation of players - if this is not complete yet, here's a few suggestions for new talents to add, or abilities to include in attributes;

  • Flat accel - Make the accel shot have 20% less spin, so players can have high topspin when defending but still able to hit flat attacking shots. Similar to the topic I posted about in the mini-blog thread :).
  • Slice mastery FH/BH - This could be split this between the wings, some players have a great slice on one wing (usually backhand) and not so notably on the other. The same could be true of dropshot/lob/counter skills differing between wings. Maybe slice spin/precision/consistency could have seperate stats, then you could give a player like Karlovic a good BH slice and less reliable topspin BH.
  • Squash shot - With reaching animations coming, maybe this kind of forehand slice could be enabled/improved for players with this ability.
  • Sliding - If this is implemented in the gameplay, there could be a talent/attribute for if and how well a player can perform it on each surface.
  • Running FH/BH - reduce the penalty for hitting while moving or with less charge time.
  • Shot direction change - improved ability to change the ball direction to DTL (if any penalty would be introduced for this in the gameplay), for example Djokovic is renowned for his backhand down the line. Some players have better technique at countering the angle of deflection to hit down the line.

Some more general gameplay ideas;
  • Block return - Maybe with the context-sensitive button on returns, you could perform a block return which uses more of a volley technique than the full swing all other keys use.
  • Forward momentum - A modifier that allows you to move forward through a groundstroke/serve towards the net, currently you have to hit the shot and then move again from a standing start which limits how quickly and effectively you can get to the net. Top Spin 3 and 4 used to have a button to do this (R1 on controller I think).
  • Volleys - The context-sensitive button could maybe be combined with other shots to deliberately perform half-volleys/drive volleys. I think these low/half volleys were one of the weaker parts of TE3 (the game would sometimes wrongly trigger groundstroke anim or volley) and currently in this alpha it seems to be similar at the moment.

Just throwing ideas out there - these are early comments after only 1-2hrs, overall I like the changes compared to TE3 and look forward to future updates and online mode.
