Literally just thought of this a few mins ago. Rather than just generate amateurs looking to turn pro each game day, an entire am scene could be run in the background. amateurs could be generated aged 16 - 20 or so and compete in domestic competitions with the best then selected to fight for their national squads for world / Olympics / other international tournaments.

Players could then keep track of ams they are interested in and offer pro deals. Some may knock you back as they want to stay am or are preparing for a tournament etc

I would have to work in the WSB as well somehow...

Great idea, would it be possible for some of the amateurs generated to already come with fights on their record, carried over from the juniors? Wouldn't have to have actual names, fight reports or shows, just wins and losses to give an idea of how much experience they have and how good they are.

yes, the plan is to simulate the entire amateur career, but probably without the fight reports. so you will see their record etc

however, this does mean i wont be able to randomly manually create an "olympic gold medalist" as this would be done by simulation, with Olympics, world championships and continental championships run by the game. any "clone" type fighters would have to be generated right at the start of their adult amateur career so their amateur achievements will probably not match the person they are based on when they finally turn pro

completed the amateur boxer generation and the amateur fight scheduling today. very exciting.
i'm going to work on the am fight simulation now, which will be a simplified version of the pro one, with no fight report and scored soley by number of punches landed

edit - with it being the 10 points system now, the scoring will be the same as with the pro's

This sounds great. Maybe you should be able to offer the amateur fighters deals as they progress and them have a character trait like wanting to turn pro quick or stay amateur to win at Olympics and such. The same way as a nation could have two or three top class middlewights but only one gets picked for tournaments so the other two are more likely to turn pro. Also the nation the fighter is from should play a part in them turning pro.

yep, thats the plan. there will be points where an am declares he wants to turn pro, or you can approach any am yourself. of course the am's you can actually find will also depend on the abilities of your scout, with just the well known fighters being immediately visible to all. if the fighter is preparing for a tournament or just does not want to turn pro yet, you will just get knocked back

How will you integrate this with Gyms? Assuming they stay part of V2. Could you set up your own Amateur gym and choose when your fighters turn pro or let them progress through the amateurs or something like that?

Good question. Hadnt thought about that. Maybe the gyms will produce fighters who bypass the am scene.
