Create a stadium deep dive?

How dual entitlement works? What should I do, if I bought Digital Deluxe Edition on PS4 and now I have PS5, where in my library shows PS4 version of 21? Which version is gonna predownload on PS5?

No. It's so bad that it's simply beyond repair.

Ramone sayz: "MLB, Classic, and Minor League parks are not editable." (I know DP is a Spring training site, but pretty sure it falls in this category)

HOWEVER, we've seen pieces of other parks (Oracle's Coke bottle) eligible to use in Stadium Creator. If they include enough of Date Palm's pieces, you could re-create it in the aggregate and then fool around.

The better story of today is the Met's walk-off, HPB... that was called a strike.

UPDATE... I see you already posted on this... I can't beat you to anything 😞

I have always said that Offline DD has given it's players very few reasons to collect stadiums. You just don't get to choose them. Conquest, moments, showdowns, even March to October does not give you any chance to choose a stadium.

Well in their stream they just showed a list of modes that do not support created stadiums

  • Conquest
  • Showdown
  • Moments
  • DD Casual
  • March To October
  • Online HR Derby
  • Online Play with Friends

So if you spend the bulk of your DD time offline it may not be worth it to spend hours and hours crafting the perfect stadium.

My team for 19 and 20 were the NJ Dinos. I think I may have to keep that theme with all the dinosaurs I can now place around my new park. Stadium creator looks like fun.

I was hoping we would see attributes on those choice pack cards so I could start narrowing down my choices. I always hit well with each Griffey card, so I feel like I have to get him for my first choice. The second will probably be a toss up between Aaron, Martinez, Rivera, and Robinson. Do we know if the choice pack cards are sellable? I assume they are based on 19 and 20.

It's disappointing, but I kind of get most of them. You're always the away team in conquest, moments are typically based on a real scenario in a real stadium, and showdowns are basically an extension of moments. I also feel like March to October should stick to MLB stadiums. The head scratcher for me is online play with friends. If you can played with a custom stadium in ranked, I don't see why that would be an issue.

Well, it just kind of supports my, and many others, hopes of having some type of offline events or offline short season where we could choose a stadium.

The "Next Gen" improvements are basically non existent. What a let down. Especially graphically.

They deleted the video on the YouTube video after people already left comments 😂. They know it was a bad showing.

I agree with you, TheGreedyG103. Stadium Creator is one feature, and I understand it required the new systems in order to run, but that is not the definition of "next-gen". Agreed, this stream was a letdown, and it didn't answer the technical questions I wanted answered. It was a Stadium Creator stream, not a "next-gen" stream.

Coincidentally, here are the questions I want answered and was expecting some answers in the stream about that were not answered.

Okay, so I know 4k@120 is not going to happen this year. However, what about 1440@120 or 1080p@120? Did 1440 get dropped because the PS5 does not support it natively? (The Xbox Series X|S support 1440@120 natively, so I sure hope 1440 (balanced) was not dropped in '21.)

1440@120 or 1080@120 is a cakewalk for the next-gen Xbox systems, with tons of horsepower leftover to still run SC. In addition, Microsoft has a 120fps patch for Xbox Series S|X that can make games be able to support 120 w/ minimal effort by the development team. Does the Xbox Series S|X version support this, and if not, why not? These are technical questions that I'd expect/want answered in a "next-gen" stream.

Instead, all we got was a 30-minute advertisement/commercial for Stadium Creator.

Could not have articulated it any better. Let's go even further beyond that. How were there no updated textures? Why does the dirt sitting on home plate still look so artificial? Why are there not any cloth physics? Why is their a lack of Ray Tracing? This game will be killed by reviewers.

I watched the stream but I didn't see if you could do this but can you make a dome in the stadium creator?

No the Q&A with Coach and Ramone says you cannot.
