Welcome to my first entry in the developer diary of Football Pocket Manager. In future I will be posting here about the current development of the game, as well look back on past development stages. Every user will have the opportunity to contribute their own ideas, comments and critics into the development process. Either can be done over Facebook, Twitter or our intern forum.
What are we currently working on?
Currently I am working on balancing the game values, expansion of the simulation, extended Editors functions and the translation of the Game content.
Expansion of the simulation – As of now the game recognizes only normal goal chances with no penalty or corner kicks. Also there will be tricks implemented from talented players and more variety into the text modus. Besides the goal scoring, the Assists will be saved too. This will be implemented into the calculation of the equity. Along with the commenting there will be an additional possibility to cheer the game, but more will be spoken of in my next entry.
Balancing of the game scores – Many of you complained about the outrageous pay claims when negotiating. With the improved calculations of the equity and new features of the players, there will be much more accurate calculations of pay claims. This will also be improved by calculating the Stadium guests, finance (sponsors, fan articles) as well as optimizing the training of the player (strength and exhaustion levels)
Editing possibilities – To make the editing more user friendly and easier to share with friends we will provide a cloud attachment in the near future. There is an existing sharing possibility but it’s rather complicated and not user friendly. (See update 1.067)
New editors’ functions – Anyone who wants to include their own comments into the game can do so with our next update. This option will be released together with the new simulation.
Translations – Since it’s an international game, the English version is going to be revised and more languages like Italian, Spanish and French language will be added on with the next update.
New Game functions – In every big update there are going to be new game features. What they are going to be is still open.
