Road to 1.0: Feature List

As the OOTP Fantasy Leagues 1.0 release date nears, I thought a couple articles akin to OOTP’s “Road to Release” would be a fun intro to the Mod.  So in that spirit, here is Road to 1.0 number one, The Feature List.

Global Features

  • Unlimited fantasy leagues based on an OOTP league (MLB, Fictional, historical, hobbit, etc)

In addition, OOTP Fantasy Leagues features a core set of basic fantasy league management features for three unique sets of users:

  1. OOTP Game Owners/Admins – The person who owns the copy of OOTP and will set up and upload the league data and HTML and run the administrative tools on the site
  2. League Commissioners – The creators of the individual fantasy leagues. These are owners who will manage the league such as inviting and managing owners, choosing the draft date and managing the draft and running the league.
