    Should clarify that I was thinking about that in relation to an expansion of all time greats.

    If this real world leagues go ahead, they might make the calendar work well enough that we can do something with career international fixtures.
    Just out of interest Sureshot what historical test series or events would you like to see show up in the all time greats area?

        Yes, should be another update soon. Dropbox is very close.

        I think historical world cups would be great, but I know there's potential problems there with the rules of those eras. Making the AI realistic might be a challenge too.

        World Series? There's an awful lot that could be done with ATG, which is a big problem in itself, if you don't pick the right things we could spend a lot of time on something that might not get much use.

            Only just coming to this - prompted by the recent update - really great to read about the progress being made. I think there has been some significant advances in the game in this iteration - the database is well balanced and the production of regenerated players is much better than previously (in previous versions the England team might be unrecognisable after two seasons). In terms of features I'd prefer concentration on aspects like bowler characteristics which will add strategic depth rather than the more cosmetic issues like DRS. For the international game, is it possible to implement a feature in which home conditions suit the home side? I know this is the case already (more spinnning pitches in Asia) but stats suggest that the home side in international cricket is much more likely to win than when playing away. I think the player should be able to have input into international pitches at home, too - it's clear that these are produced to favour the home side where possible.

              I have a question about development, if i take a not so good young player, say with a 25 2nd xi batting average and play him in all the games that season and he performs well eg averages over 60 in fc for the year does his ability increase dramatically ? Or does he stay at the same level?

                Hi there, I posted in the Cricket Captain 2018 thread but I would like to make an enquiry about the main feature I would love. Is it possible to have an in-game editor where I can adjust the stats of a player? I don't know how the engine works but I presume better players have higher parameters which makes them more likely to perform and it would be fun to be able to harness that. As mentioned in the aforementioned thread, I would easily pay for an optional in-game add-on if it's a fair price.
