EDITING PITCHES: new consideration... was created by electrospectre

through prolonged play using the swos pack, It's noticeable how each team inhabits a certain pitch as their home ground... take the english premiership as an example:

pitch 1: birmingham city, chelsea, man city, portsmouth, stoke city, wolverhampton.
pitch 2: arsenal, fulham, hull city, man utd, west ham utd.
pitch 3: burnley, everton, liverpool, tottenham.
pitch 4: aston villa.
pitch 5: blackburn, bolton, sunderland, wigan.
(pitch 6: training pitch)

i'm wonderin' whether these preset pitches might feature in certain strands and could be changed through hex editing...

presumably, this would enable us to select which pitch each team plays on. and with a little endeavour we can alter the pitches to host different standards of football for different continents. let's roughly imagine, for example (without indgulging in too much detail):

pitch 1: superstadia: international venues/top flight stadia belonging to elite european clubs. eg barca, arsenal.
pitch 2: modest standard: grounds that belong to other top flight clubs.
pitch 3: lower league standard: older, smaller, humble-looking grounds.
pitch 4: continental modest standard: perhaps with stands further away from ptich/different hoardings etc
pitch 5: continental lower league standard.

dunno, but anyway, you get the picture! it would really add something to the matchplay.

btw, 'twould also herald one other question... is it possible to add extra pitches to the current six?  8)

interesting, never noticed it.

thought this was worth bringing back to the surface- i really would like to tailor specific pitches to certain clubs, surely it's possible...

...theoretically we could create a hundred different pitches, figure out the relevant info in the hex ( which i don't know enough about  :-\ ) and then assign the pitches to different teams, right?

we know each team has one single pitch hot-wired to it (any between 1-6), it's just a matter of figuring out how to edit which pitch it owns...

eg swap a team from pitch 4 to a newly created pitch 7.

Wow, that's news to me. Shouldn't there be a bit in the team definition that defines what pitch set has to be used when team x plays at home?

Yes and no.
Every team.xxx file in the data folder includes the team definitions. I've looked into that file but can't remember seeing a number that I couldn't match with the available info in the game.

I was actually wondering whether you found a clue about the perceived different home stadiums. I never noticed a difference between the various pitches per seperate team, but clearly you have and now you're making me wonder whether there's something out there in SWOS that I never noticed before. :)
