OOTP 18 Update #6, Version 18.6.61 Available - Adds Improved 3D Animations!

Hey folks!

It's summer time, and instead of hanging around on beaches, we still worked hard on the game and have just released an update which adds some neat new stuff, including diving / jumping player animations in 3D mode! The new version number of this update is 18.6.61.

Here is the changelist:
- Improved 3D animations, including adding diving, jumping, and sliding plays in the field
- Updated Opening Day roster sets, including improvements of 2017 draft class and minor league player ratings (need to create a new game for changes to apply)
- Added widget to manage bullpen in-game. Added option to auto-sit relievers before they start tiring while warming up
- Updated in-game PBP elements, including better lining up detailed PBP with 3D action
- Added 1944 Negro league data
- Improved historical minor league database
- Added option to disable infield shifts in the league strategy settings
- Added more playoff scheduling series options
- Added checkbox in-game to filter available players, to better view bench options
- Team schedule screen now supports double-headers
- Fixed bug where team color changes were not saved
- Many other bug and cosmetic fixes

We will release another update later this summer, before we shift our sole attention to OOOTP 19 and that secret exciting new thing we have been working on for a while now. That will be awesome.

Enjoy the game!
Markus & the entire OOTP Team

OOTP 18 Hotfix (Wild Pitch Crash) Version 18.5.57 Available!

Hey folks!

We have identified an issue in the previous update (18.5.56) which sometimes caused a crash when playing games out in 3D and a wild pitch occurred. We have fixed the issue and have just released a hotfix patch, version 18.5.57.

Cheers,
Markus

About This Game

Out of the Park Baseball 18 - the follow-up to Metacritic's PC Game of the Year 2016 and officially licensed through MLB.com and the MLBPA - is a baseball fan's dream come true!

"OOTP is an astonishing accomplishment!" - Boston Red Sox Principal Owner John W. Henry

Step into the shoes of a GM and/or field manager to own the future or rewrite the past of your favorite real-world baseball franchise. Build the team the way you want to. Start a new career with your favorite 2017 MLB team or span through almost 150 years of baseball history and run any team from the past! You can even set up your own fictional baseball universe or compete in online leagues against other OOTP players. The possibilities in OOTP 18 are endless.

The brand new 2017 MLB roster set will include all projected Opening Day MLB rosters as well as the complete minor league system down to the rookie leagues and even future draft classes. Can the Chicago Cubs repeat as World Series winners, despite the loss of Aroldis Chapman and Dexter Fowler? Or did the Cleveland Indians' successful offseason set them up for at taking the World Series trophy home this year? Will the Boston Red Sox's rotation, anchored by Chris Sale and David Price, dominate in the AL East, or are the rebuilding Yankees already a contender? Which team will win the tight National League West Division, the powerhouse LA Dodgers, led by the best pitcher in baseball, Clayton Kershaw?

On top of this, 8 international leagues (Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Italy, The Netherlands, Mexico and Cuba) and several international and US independent leagues return to OOTP 18 with accurate and projected 2017 rosters.

Dive into the more hands-on management and set your team's lineups, pitching staffs, and in-game strategy. You can oversee your league at a high level, or play out each game, managing play by play or even pitch by pitch. OOTP players progress realistically over time. Build a team through the draft, or sign big free agents to put you over the top!

New Features in OOTP 18 include:

  • Experience a new game mode in OOTP 18: Challenge! This mode is available for newly created leagues (standard / historical / fictional) and adds a unique twist, along with new rewards, while playing OOTP. Your achievements are tracked in an (optional) online profile. Are you the best OOTP manager on the planet?
  • Improved 3D Mode & Game Highlight Reels. With even more ballpark detail than before and enhanced player animations, the 3D game mode in OOTP has taken another leap forward.
  • New Tournamanets & Fall Leagues. Set up your own national or international tournaments, choose from different tournament modes, and manage your favorite nation to international glory.
