In RTTS, get rid of the agent nonsense. There's no point in any of the incredibly random and occasional interactions.
No position switches unless you approach team brass about it.
No more drafting in 15th or lower rounds.
Fix the useless manager and coaching AI. Some of the decisions made are beyond ludicrous.

Overall game, fix animations. I absolutely hate seeing a batting stance animation start over and the player click back into starting position.
Update the equipment. Franklin doesn't make batting gear anymore.

There are so many more small things........

SDS

I would absolutely love to see a create a stadium but could you imagine the problems youd have online with that? MLB parks lag like crazy I can only imagine how messed up the created ones would. Also, as someone said, the short fences and stupid outfield walls would be far too much

SDS

Get rid of the wind factor and level out all the stadiums, so people don't choose the same one because the ball flies more.

Increase bullpen stamina , and get rid of pitcher confidence, if i give up 2 back to back hr I'm not suddenly gonna lose my control.

Prevent the use of a starting pitcher for 3 games after use in rotation or bullpen. Its 1 Kluber 2 Newhouser 3 Kopech/Ohtani/Graterol all day, and to Compensate for people quitting you can switch out your rotation and the 3 game rule will still count.

Fix the pitching control, BB/9 should determine the size of the green bar and control should determine how precise you have to be when using the right thumb stick to hit your spot. No more random [censored].

No more perfect perfects outside of the strike zone. If you make contact with a ball outside the strike zone there should be a penalty. Your power gets reduce by 30% and your contact 20% unless they have some type of Vladimir Guerrero quirk where its 15% 10%.

Increase the strike zone if the white ball marker touches any part of the outer strike zone rectangle its a 50/50 call.

Fix the fielding and animation so my guy doesn't sit back and wait for a slow roller to get to him while Buxton is running down the line, he should charge the ball and finish with a barehanded throw.

Confidence should totally affect a Pitcher’s control and there is a way to make it work, but I think I’m seeing your point here - don’t have the game tell me I’m nervous by fudging my pitch locations. If I give up two b2b bombs you’d better believe I’m going to be careful with the next guy, but I’m going to compensate for that by changing my strategy myself. I don’t need the game to do it for me. Or maybe have the confidence change the meter or pulse speed (or the analog equivalent). Actually I like that idea better.

I have a slight variation in your BB/9 idea; leave BB/9 in simmed ABs only (along with K/9, HR/9 and H/9). Pitcher control with a pitch should be the determining factor for the size of the green bar (it should also be graduated), and other factors like energy and perhaps confidence should determine the meter or pulse length and speed and delay etc.

By graduated I mean bright green perfect area in the middle fading to black to the edges of the meter, with other ‘levels of closeness’ to perfect determined by the pitcher’s control value for that pitch.

You get 10% away from perfect on a pitcher with 92 control? That’s going to be close to his spot. You get 80% away? That’s probably not going to be close.

You get 10% away from perfect on a pitcher with 50 control? That’s got an ok chance. 80% away from perfect? No way that’s close to the spot.

Also early and late on the pulse/ meter/ whatever would mean an early or late release point.

There are league minimums that would have to be enforced

I would like to see a free-flowing homerun robbery boosts. I can never tell when my outfielder will make the catch so I thought of this idea.

SDS

Forget DD and put all man power in improving Franchise.

Look at this guy. He looks like he just stepped off the mound into a big ol' bucket of sassy.

SDS

I would like to see a stick rocket-shot and strobe effect on plays when you successfully check the runner.

SDS

I'm not trying to bump this thread, but I have an idea. I would like to have a convex figured pitching ripples. I am trying to say I want a new and improved aggressive pitching attack solution. Thankyou and now it's showtime.

SDS
  1. I wish there were All-time teams like in NBA
  2. I want to create teams and use them in Play now.
  3. I want to be able to change the length and innings of Franchise mode.
  4. I want to go to college and play a season instead of the bowman showcase
SDS
  1. Build a Stadium
  2. No early Future Stars
  3. No check swings

Also, I'd like them to put some sort of softball setting with the top NCAA Softball teams.

SDS

Franchise mode, create or edit a stadium & being able to sell my tv & digital rights, I want to be able to make more money.

GM/Agent interaction

Being able to edit those horrible strike out animations, if we can opt out of extreme bat flips why can't we do the same with pitching?

Pre & post game shows, something like NFL 2K5.

SDS

Better Weather Options.

  1. Live Stadium Weather
    You play based on the current conditions (wind speed, direction, rain/sunny, etc) at the stadium

  2. Live Home Weather
    You play based on the current weather conditions outside your home. Windy outside? Windy in the game too.

  3. Historic Stadium Weather
    You play based on the actual game conditions at the stadium on the day of the game (of course not if you are playing ahead of the schedule in Franchise mode)

It'll need some sort of tie-in with a weather company I assume.

And make Heidi skippable in Franchise Mode! I'm ok with still listening to her, but let me get on with the game!

SDS

I want to add 5 final ideas.
#1 Walkoff slow roller pinpoints.
#2 Zone drop pitching.
#3 Hot white batting cones.
#4 Bold miracle innings.
#5 King of walls. The best of wall catch battles.

With all these networks doing mlb Sim games it would be nice to see them in the game talking baseball

SDS

Legendary Teams like the 2004 Red Sox, 98 Yankees, 1976 Reds “Big Red Machine” etc.. It would bring New Life to baseball on the PS4 and in Real life. While also bringing Nostalgia to Old fans and letting the New fans know how Elite the older teams were. It would be very cool. I think the NBA does a phenomenal job showing love to their legends all around. How about we start putting our legends on the alternate covers of the video game? like Manny Ramirez, Derek Jeter etc. The same way the NBA 2K franchise did with Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.

I saw that, but forgot that it was earlier in the year. You did call it, overall included! He was a 97, right?
