OOTP 13 Updated
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Out of the Park Developments has released the fourth patch for Out of the Park Baseball 13. The major update includes several new features, such as the ability to broadcast the real-time simulation screen to an online league's website, so league members can watch the games being simulated live.

"We're committed to releasing regular updates to OOTP 13 and iOOTP 2012 throughout the baseball season, with new features always being added alongside the usual bug fixes and performance improvements," said Markus Heinsohn, founder and CEO of Out of the Park Developments. "Baseball is such a rich, complex sport that we're always finding new ways to add realism to the armchair GM experience."

Here's what's new in OOTP 13, version 13.4.17:

  • Added a feature that enables online leagues to broadcast the real-time simulation screen to the league website as a real-time report, so league members can watch the league being simulated live
  • Added a "Check teams for roster violations" function to the commissioner home screen
  • Added the ability to edit "Projected Budget"; if set, all future budgets of a team can remain constant
  • Added a "GM only” mode (in manager options) that prevents the human GM from winning the manager of the year award or appearing in the manager-related history reports
  • Added the ability to add leagues to and remove them from existing associations
  • Added a "Reset all Injuries & DL status" function to the league setup screen
  • Added a "Reset Player Fatigue" function to the league setup screen
  • Added a "Reset Player Morale" function to the league setup screen
  • Added a "Reset Compensation Type of all Free Agents" function to the league setup screen
  • Added an option in the league setup screen to disable automatic Hall of Fame inductions
  • Added two new player split stat categories, "As Starter" and "As Reliever / Substitution"; these only work for the current season, though
  • Added coach pictures to the team personnel screen
  • Added player pictures to the in-game player profile screen
  • The payroll between the start of the offseason and the date of free agent filings is now a projection rather than the salaries from the just finished season, resulting in more accurate projected budgets and funds available
  • Shortlisted players are now highlighted by having their name displayed in upper case in player lists
  • Players discovered through international scouting will now accept minor league contracts if they are very young and years away from reaching the majors
  • Improved various aspects of the in-game and roster AI
  • Fixed several bugs
