If you add both Split - Pro and Split - Army Split to the same Custom PB, they're on two different pages, both named "Split", when you search for your play by Formation.

I would like to either see create a play or the ability to save hot routes that I use every play so I don't have to select my MLB put him on qb spy then switch back to my de who I user every pre snap

Adding formations to an existing playbook is still an adventure. I added a bunch of additional Ace formations to the Boston College playbook tonight, and they were added in no discernible order. As well, the formations that were already part of the playbook were rearranged into a nonsensical order.

Yeah, I don't have this problem with my offensive playbook as the only 2 formation I have (outside of special teams) is Pistol and Wishbone (Tight as my "goalline set") but my defensive playbooks are an absolute mess. I don't know where in the hell certain formations are.

Id love to see some Wing T, even though no teams run it.. It would be nice, playing as UD, now that they have old School stuff like wishbone and power i...

If possible, the ability to arrange formations and formations within formations to the users liking.

If possible, the ability to arrange formations and formations within formations to the users liking.Yes, please. Just add a "Reorder Formations" button, like the current "Reorder Plays". I've had to scrap two different Custom Playbooks simply because my formations order was completely screwed up.

they need dynamic rivalrys, where if ur competetive with a team for consecutive years, they become a rival. Also i liked the old dorm they had in road to glory, they should bring that back.

regarding formation subs within a playbook, we currently have a reset feature that sets any special placements back to the default settings. it'd be nice if they made it to where you could reset everything to original or just reset a certain formation (while keeping everything else).

i cant stress the need enough that we need to have, at the very least, some kind of formation, play, or package editor for our playbooks. if you're a hardcore fan of this series, you've seen the same looks ever since the current gen took over. some kind of play/formation/package editor would bring a new element to the table as we could alter placement of players, presnap movement of players (like the new cover 3 bluff plays on defense), and modifying routes on certain plays (permanently changing the type of zone a defender is playing, or permanently changing a route that a wr runs).

love this. i dont care for the strongside/weakside stuff (even though it should be in the game), but the other stuff is a necessity.

expanding on the 120+ ways to win slogan from a couple of years ago, we need expanded and multiple types of depth charts. there's no reason for an air raid type of offense to use the same setup of depth chart that a triple option team uses.

custom depth charts, where we determine how many slots are available for each position would work too. another option would be to just double the amount of slots available for every position. not every slot has to be filled though. there are currently 5 open spots for kick and punt returning on the depth chart.....there wouldnt be reason to have a list 10 deep of who your kick returners are. :eyeroll: however the case is mostly for air raid/run&shoot offenses that require a large amount of wr's. additionally, i think users shouldnt have to follow the position requirement rules. i know those are in place mainly for the cpu, but this is one area where i dont think the user should have to follow the same set of guidelines.

more slots available on the depth charts would also help eliminate some personnel bugs that occasionally happen (mostly when extreme fatigue issues happen). ex: if i'm down to my 13th option at cornerback, i dont want a 65 speed quarterback subbed in, when i have a 94 speed wr available. overall, though, i think that more control could be given to the user, and the current setup in place is a limiting factor, which hurts the game.

It appears to me that Custom Playbooks don't quite handle linked plays properly. I have one playbook where the plays are set like this:
http://playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000013.jpghttp://www.playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000016.jpghttp://playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000014.jpg
In another playbook, the same formation, the plays are organized like this:
http://playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000014.jpghttp://www.playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000016.jpghttp://playbooks.ncaaplaybook.com/images/plays/ncaa13/SHOTGUN%20-%20WING%20OFFSET/SG%2000004.jpg

On the first playbook, when the Read Option is successful I then get a "Setup Play!" dialog for PA Read. Makes sense. On the second playbook, I get the "Setup Play!" dialog for HB Slip Screen. Makes no sense.

It's like the "Setup Play!" works with the play directly to the right, not an actual linked play.

I'd love to see way more trick plays in the game. Reverses, double reverses, reverse passes, hook and ladder, fumblerooski, etc.

Otherwise, yes.

Jeff, have you done any other research on this bug? Will the linked play always work if they are next to each other? How about if I have multiple PA passes that could be linked to the same run: will both passes show as "Setup"?

JeffHCross
01-21-2013, 05:20 PM
Duncan, I have a fair amount of linked plays in my book. In all cases where I have a base play in the middle and linked play on the right, it works fine. I want to say that I have seen plays link even when they're not next to each other, like Escobar described in the other thread, but I'm not so sure if I've seen that more than once.

I'm not aware of any situation where multiple PA can link to a single base, even with default playbooks. So I've not yet looked into that.

Go Bucks!

Isn't really about CPB, but there's not a better place to put Formation Subs things ...

I'd really like the "Reset Formation" to return to formation subs. As it stands now, you can only reset the entire playbook. There's also no way to undo changes, so if I change one player for one game, I either have to live with that sub for the rest of the season, change it to another player (and have him be permanently in that position, and won't swap due to packages or anything), or reset all of my changes, including ones I've probably forgotten by now.
