ok, some of them are in the features list,some are not.
the main reason for this thread is to be as transparent
as possible so that no member would feel cheated and we wont want
to be labeled as "Liars" ! this list will be updated as the game
progresses.

Things That are present in TAOC that are NOT present in EA / Codies cricket series :-

1.) First Up, Plain And Simple - Realistic gameplay !!

2.) Realistic physics. The cricket ball will move realistically.

3.) Stat-Tracking.

4.) View replays of your favourite moments!

5.) Awesome batting includes many different strokes on the front and back foot.

6.) It is the first game to pioneer a stamina system for batsman which recreates the fatigue which is part of a long innings.

7.) dew factor For ODIs in the subcontinent. That is, it would favour the side batting second under lights.

8.) players like tendulkar / symonds can bowl medium pace, offspin etc.
so if we select part-time bowlers, there would be an option to choose whether we want to bowl leg / off / medium etc.....

9.) McGrath would bowl 80% of his deliveries in the similar area becuase he is very consistant with his bowling. where as brett lee would bowl 65% on the proper line.

10.) There Would be tentative pushes by the AI which will result in more edges
and a bowler like mcgrath can take advantage of his seaming ability.

11.) We would be able to select any headgear (cap,helmet etc) in between overs from
the menu.

12.) Player likenesses. Witness the Tall & skinny Mcgrath bowling to the Short & chubby Tendulkar.

13.) totally free cam can be used to select any default camera angle view and also in replays, no restrictions to angle or zoom.

14.) You can choose the people that will umpire your match from the official ICC panel.(will be available via patch)

15.) Dynamic weather conditions and lighting effects. It may begin to rain and it will get darker throughout a day!
And not like EA where the rain continues throughout the day :rolleyes:

16.) Duckworth Lewis system

Things That WONT be there :-

1.) Classic Matches (too much time & research required)

2.) Domestic Teams / cups / leagues (may be as an addon)

3.) Presentation After the match (unecessary)

4.) Licenses (Fixable via patch)

5.) Authentic Batting and bowling Styles.(very hard to do as anims are done by hand)

6.) Snickometer,Hawkeye,Ultra Motion.(money constrains)

7.) Next Gen Graphics.(limited technology / sources)

8.) Manual LBw Appeal Button (not necessary)

9.) Career Mode (too time consuming)

10.) Ball Smashing the pavillion windows :rolleyes:

11.) Authentic Faces.(gameplay more imp than graphics)

Things That Would Be Editable :-

AI
Bats
Kits (Jersey,Pads,gloves,helmet etc)
Adboards
Pitchmats
Grass
Turfs
Faces
Hair
Overlays
menu graphics
Rosters(stats,attributes)
Teams
Competitions/tours
Sounds

Things That Would NOT Be Editable :-

Source code(obviously) :rolleyes:
Animations
Player models
Stadiums

Yeah looks good to me........

Will the player's rating grow as he progresses........
Also will the game take note that a record is broken or say Dhoni is making his 20-20 debut

I was talking to JK earlier. No it doesn't mean the game is being commercially released. We just don't want to take the risk of having our rear ends sued. :o

Could you give an example of the unlicensed name for some of the players just for the sake of it?

I know you say that a manual appeal button isn't necessary but I would really like this feature to be in a cricket game, lets face it in real life if you don't appeal it wont be given.

It is one of those features which will take time to implement and may not have complete positive responce considering it will be a chore to appeal for everything...

What is your view on a slip catching system in which a button appears above the fielder's head and you must press it to catch it, in time, or else drop it. The harder the catch, the more obscure the button (X on ps2 controller being least obscure and e.g. R3 being most obscure).

I dont think it would be that hard to implement a manual appeal button, you just have the same system as an automatic except a button must be pressed.

I dont like the idea of different buttons for catching, would be extremely confusing, much rather have a variable timing window (short for hard catches, longer for easier ones)

i think manual appeal should be in the game it's definately more realistic and it shouldnt be hard to implement it should be easier to implement than automatic appeal.
coz if the user presses the button only then the appeal is made,the game doesnt decide when to appeal.
