I have now finally finished a new blog post that will hopefully shed some light over the upcoming release this fall. 

 

The blog post is divided into two parts:

 

Part 1 - The features

Part 2 - The business

 

And here's a sneak peak of the new design (work in progress). (Also available in the blog post)

ORIGINAL post by Tobias April 28, 2018

 

Hi all of you!

Right now we are a bit quiet here on the forums and in general.

That’s because we working with a lot of things in the backgrounds. Not generally things you notice in game but performance and future plans are in the making.

We recently received some new hardware so the game will run smoother/faster and more stable.

We are reading as much reports and suggestions as possible. Because we want your opinion in developing.

Keep enjoying the game and be fair and nice to eachother!

//Tobias




#34725 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by GamePlanHockey on May 18, 2018 - 07:35 AM

Sorry for the lack of info lately. Time really flies. Here's the latest update on how everything is going with the upcoming release later this fall. More info regarding this release can also be found here: http://forums.gmgame...rrent-road-map/

 

  • We have bought a second web server that will run the database and the simulators for the upcoming release. I'm planning on re-opening the UAT on this server to test things out. But we're currently waiting on some missing parts that was not included from the supplier.
  • I'm also doing quite many changes of the codebase at the moment. This includes a major upgrade of the database and a move of the simulators from .NET Framwork to dotnet core. This is to be able to run the simulators on a Linux environment. This part is now almost done.
  • We have also started creating a new design of the game. I've received a first draft from the designer and it's looking real good. Really excited to implement a fresh look to the game.
  • We're now putting together the first questions for the focus group. We're planning on creating a protected sub forum here in the forum. All members will receive an email with an invitation within a week or so. Sorry to have kept you waiting.
  • Besides all of the above I've also created a bug fix patch that was just released (v1.3.4). This will hopefully take care of the most urgent bugs until the major release later this fall.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask  :) 




#18461 Current road map

Posted by GamePlanHockey on January 16, 2016 - 12:43 PM

**Updated: 24th February 2018
 
To let you all know what's going on and what's planned for the future I'm going to share the current road map for the game in this topic. The road map is subject to change but here's what planned at the moment. Note that the road map only addresses new features, bug fixes will be made continuously.
 
Up next
 
Major database upgrade
I’m currently working on a major database version upgrade that will improve performance but it's also necessary since the current database version will become obsolete. Once this upgrade is finished I will invest in a second web server to reduce load on the current. This investment is possible thanks to all of you that are supporting the game through an All Star account! So many thanks and keep up the good work!
 
 
Coming soon
 
We have such big plans for this game and therefore we’re planning quite a big release by fall 2018. 
 
This big release will contain not only new features but also a redesign of the whole game. It may also contain a changes regarding subscriptions and user account types where we want to expand the Game Plan Hockey Manager community and make the game available for a larger audience. 
 
While developing this big release we want to use a focus group as advisory board. All current Patreons and Staff members will be invited to be part of this focus group.
 
More info regarding all of this is coming soon but here’s a few features that currently are planned for this release.
 
Bigger game worlds
We want to double the amount of teams making it a total of 32 teams in each league divided in two conferences (and maybe four divisions). And we’re also playing with the idea of adding a 6th league level. This new league level may be of North American style. Somehow. Maybe. But this is still on the sketch board.  This will The point is to make each game world more competitive and to grow a greater community within each game world.
 
Enhanced playoff
We’re not happy with the current playoff experience. Much can be done here. I'm looking to add best of seven games and when divided into two conferences there should be a much more exciting playoff experience.
 
League awards, All star game, Hall of fame
We would really like to add a more detailed history to the game such as all time leading scorers by league and team, hall of fame, league awards and all star game. Maybe even national team tournaments. This to further improve the realism of the game.
 
In the backlog
 
Extended player relations and interaction
There are plans on extending the player happiness to include on how well players like each other, line chemistry, role expectations and such to influence the general happiness of the player. We also want to add the possibility to interact and "talk" to the team and players.
 
Staff
We’ve been planning to add this feature for a long long time. But other things always gets in the way. The hiring of staff will open up a new dimension to the game where coaches can give valuable details from each game, scouts to reveal opponents tactics or find players that suits the team's needs. We’re also looking to add more staff members like doctors to improve healing of injuries, agents to negotiate contracts, mental coaches to train player traits.
 
Live games
We really would love to introduce live games, or at least viewable games. Personally I'm a big fan of text based game engines (like in the early manager games) where you get comments of what's happening continuously throughout the game. I don't think you'll ever see this game with 3D rendered hockey players.
 
And a whole lot of more…
The feature list in the backlog is long. And we really appreciate all the suggestions made by all of you. So if you have a suggestion please don’t hesitate to make a post in the suggestions forum!
 
 
 
Questions or comments? Feel free to add to this topic.



#38044 Game Plan Hockey Manager 2.0 - Release date announced!

Posted by GamePlanHockey on January 13, 2019 - 05:18 PM

So we're now finally ready to announce a release date. 

 
Game Plan Hockey Manager 2.0 - March 1st 2019 
 
This might be further ahead than most of you expected and there's a couple of reasons for this. 
 
First, we simply don't want to make any promises that we can't hold. We have postponed the announcement of a release date for way too long now. I will get into the reasons for this further down if you're interested. 
 
Second, we want to get this right. In all ways possible. We still have things on our todo list but we will also use the extra time to correct some of the flaws that have been subject for several discussions here on the forum. I'm thinking of the goalie endurance issue as one example. 
 
So here's what's going to happen. 
 
About a week before the release date all current managers will be able to sign up and set up their current teams and choose game world. This way you will get the privilege to sign up and reserve your team name and league level before new managers find their way into the game. I know I mentioned an automatic setup way back, but you will have to create a new team and choose a game world. But since you're getting a head start before everyone else you should be able to find your old team name and mascot when you create your team. If there's any conflict we will try to help everyone out in the very best way we can. 
 
All manager history will be kept and still displayed on your manager page but manager reputation will be reset in order to get an equal start for all managers from day 1. But your current manager reputation and league level will still decide what league levels you will able to choose from when you sign up. The manager reputation are also being reworked but I will reveal more regarding this later on. 
 
From the start there will be three game worlds available. One of each speed; Slow, Normal and Fast. Each game world can host 168 managers. And remember that you will be able to manage two teams per account, no need to sign up or pay twice. 
 
And regardless of what we've said earlier you won't have to enter your credit card information when you sign up if you don't like. You can start your 30 day trial without any credit card. But you will in this case be restricted from making any player transactions. This is to prevent players setting up shadow accounts for cheating purposes. But this will give you the opportunity to get back into the game and try things out before making up your mind. Once you've decided you can easily set up a subscription and the restrictions will be lifted. You will continue your trial and have the possibility to cancel your subscription before being charged. And remember that all who sign up within the first month will get the special price of only $1.99 per month. This includes all features and two teams. More regarding subscription plans will be released soon. 
 
That was the important stuff. But if you're interested to read some more about why things are delayed you are welcome to continue reading. I will try to not make too many excuses but I will instead try to explain what I feel have gone wrong since we first announced this big release close to a year ago. 
 
In the beginning of last year we announced that we were going to make a big new release of the game sometime during the fall 2018. At that time I felt really confident that things would be ready by then. I mean, I had more than 6 months - what could go wrong? I remember at some point even thinking things would be ready by the summer. =) 
 
I work as a developer and I'm doing estimates on a daily basis. So how come it's so difficult making estimates for this game? I've been giving this a lot of thought and I actually think I've come up with some kind of answer. As a developer you estimate how many hours, days or weeks something takes to develop. This is hard enough and many times you get things wrong. But I don't think this have been the case in this game. I've got most estimates right for this game when it came to the amount of work required. But I have not been able to estimate how many hours I can put into this game every week. Not by far. In my ordinary work I know I work approx 40 hours each week. If I estimate a task to 80 hours I know I'll be finished sometime in two-three weeks time. But when developing this game it's been impossible to estimate how many hours I can spend from week to week. Some weeks I've been able to put in 10-15 hours. Others only 2-4 hours. Remember that we're only two guys with full time jobs and families doing this on our spare time alone. We have thought about hiring more people in order to get things ready in time but that would have meant that we would have to charge even a higher price right from the beginning. Doing things on our own we have been able to keep the price down and if things turn out for the good later on, we can put more hours in and in the long run even hire some more people. Hopefully this wasn't too much of an excuse but instead it shed some light over what has been going on.
 
One thing is for sure - the release is coming and we're working as hard as we possibly can. We love this game and we want to make it great together with all of you! 
 
Thanks for sticking around and being patient! 
 
/Anders

#27267 v1.2.1

Posted by GamePlanHockey on May 15, 2017 - 12:49 PM

Bug fixes and improvements

 

  • Simulator performance updates
  • Database performance updates (reduced load size)
  • Pre compiled game analysis to improve load speed
  • Check for secure save actions to avoid conflicting or corrupted data. More info below.
  • Adjusted player development for prospects (decreased)
  • Adjusted player demand of one way contract clause (decreased)
  • Small adjustment of player prospect rankings
  • Adjustment of player trade value
  • Adjustment of computer trading AI
  • Calibration of the game engine
  • Fixed bug where setting draft order could crash
  • Fixed bug where trade was not correct on player achievement
  • Fixed bug where a pending entry level contract could be offered to a player even though he would be 21 years old
  • Fixed bug where contract offer from previous team wasn’t canceled when trading player rights
  • Fixed bug where multiple friendly games could be scheduled on same day
  • Fixed bug where trade value were not equal when trading between league levels.
  • Fixed bug where team page could crash on the last day of season
 
Secure save actions
 
Many of the previous simulator crashes has been due to conflicting and corrupted data. This occurs when the simulator and the user tries to access and save information at the same time. This is rare but happens from time to time, specially on the fast worlds since the simulator runs at a tighter schedule.
 
To prevent this the save action is now locked when the simulator is accessing critical data. Not all simulations will lock the save action so hopefully this won’t be an inconvenience for the user. During critical simulations the countdown clock will be replaced by a flashing “Simulating”. During this time almost all save buttons will in inactivated. All pages are still readable. The buttons will automatically be activated once the simulation finishes. Note that some non critical save actions, such as change player number, will be enabled even during these simulations.



#37655 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by GamePlanHockey on December 04, 2018 - 04:37 PM

Here's the latest info regarding the release date. I'm still behind schedule but I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But still too early to promise any specific release date. I'll need at least a couple of more weeks before being ready. Will get back with a specific date as soon as possible.




#37540 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by GamePlanHockey on November 21, 2018 - 09:05 AM

Time for another update. I have during the last week reworked the contracts of players. The main reason for this was because I felt there wasn't enough salary difference between a star player and a depth player. So in the upcoming release star players will have significantly higher salaries, just like in the NHL today. But also, depth players will ask for much less than what is currently the case.

 

But just as what always been the case the salary will not only be influenced by overall but also player reputation, psychological profile and the competitive situation currently on the team (and more).

 

Here's a screenshot that shows the a more diverse salary situation on a team: https://cl.ly/6d06dcda7e0e




#27381 GHL s10 power rankings.

Posted by Erzac on May 22, 2017 - 07:03 AM

To combat some Monday boredom, I went ahead and calculated some average overall stats from GHL teams. Overall doesn't of course paint the full picture of a player's capabilities, and thus is only a vague approximation of what a team can do, but it's the only easily available number for comparison.

 

Team overalls here are comprised of the average of a team's best 18 skaters (12 centers/forwards, 6 defenders) and the starting goalie. OFF/DEF come from the same players, but are simply rounded up/down to the closest full number for clarity. SG is simply the assumed starting goalie (best overall). Calculations made on day 5 of S10.

 

Here are the numbers - teams are in order starting from best OVR.

 

1.  West Chicago Protons (GM: Richard Feynman - bouncer)

OFF: 89 DEF: 91 SG: 95 OVR: 89,5

 

2.  Deadwood Vandals (GM: Kim Vandaele - koekefix)

OFF: 87 DEF: 89 SG: 96 OVR: 88,4

 

3.  Harrisonville Sabercats (GM: Hurja Herra)

OFF: 88 DEF: 89 SG: 88 OVR: 87,6

 

4.  Rome Trojans (GM: Yann Rock)

OFF: 87 DEF: 88 SG: 91 OVR: 87,5

 

5.  Cedar Rapids Minutemen (GM: Richard Armour)

OFF: 86 DEF: 88 SG: 93 OVR: 87,1

 

6.  Eldred Elite (GM: Steven Bennett)

OFF: 86 DEF: 89 SG: 93 OVR: 87,0

 

7.  Canmore Grizzlies (GM: Matt Muffett - themattinthehat)

OFF: 86 DEF: 87 SG: 91 OVR: 86,9

 

8.  Moapa Valley Gothic Knights (GM: David Chaw - FTW)

OFF: 87 DEF: 87 SG: 90 OVR: 86,9

 

9.  Richford Rebels (GM: Jusu Manager)

OFF: 86 DEF: 89 SG: 89 OVR: 86,9

 

10. St.Thomas Stray Cats (GM: Erzac Ray - Erzac)

OFF: 87 DEF: 87 SG: 90 OVR: 86,8

 

11. Portland Oilers (GM: Xavier Zhou - xZhou)

OFF: 86 DEF: 88 SG: 91 OVR: 86,6

 

12. York Wolf Pack (GM: Jiri Heikkala)

OFF: 85 DEF: 87 SG: 93 OVR: 86,2

 

13. Violet Volcano (GM: Soupy Salez)

OFF: 85 DEF: 88 SG: 92 OVR: 86,1

 

14. Thetford Mines Pegasus (GM: Anthony Grauwels - Pingu)

OFF: 85 DEF: 86 SG: 89 OVR: 85,5

 

15. Oshawa Dynasty Heroes (GM: Kris Zenatik - Euph)

OFF: 85 DEF: 85 SG: 86 OVR: 84,7

 

16. Collegeville Rhinos (BOT)

OFF: 85 DEF: 82 SG: 90 OVR: 84,4




#37345 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by GamePlanHockey on November 05, 2018 - 04:15 PM

Yes, you're right. We're getting tired of excuses. And the release was announced too early. But I really thought it would be ready by October. I was wrong. 

 

So what's happening? Currently I put several hours into the new release every day and things are progressing. The new league structures and playoffs are developed and are being tested out. The design is almost finished for desktops and larger screens. Here's a screenshot: https://cl.ly/13e1bb5fe116

 

I will from now on provide a screenshot or an update at least once a week up to time of the release. I also recorded a sneak peak on how to customise team jerseys. I posted this in the jersey discussion found here: http://forums.gmgame...eys/#entry37343

 

The release is still planned for December but probably not the first week. And as Glawing pointed out the current server will be active until the release is made with the one exception that it will be physically moved last weekend of November. 

 

So no more excuses from now on =)




#36797 Release: Fall 2018 (Just to keep you posted!)

Posted by Wick Schozen on August 29, 2018 - 07:05 PM

Been pretty busy so haven't been very active but trying to keep up. Just wanted to throw out some support. 

I'm extremely excited for the reset. I just think it makes sense since there has been so many improvements to the game engine and player development. Establishing a new baseline just seems logical.

 

Completely on board with supporting Anders. No one really knows how much time Anders has put into this game but Anders and those helping him develop it. I'm a huge fan of his vision for this an I am happy to see him finally get compensated accordingly. 

I've been a big advocate for those that are committed to this game, the real die hards, are the ones that are going to help move it forward. If that means long time guys leave, well that's the way it has to be. We've been fortunate enough to have been able to play this for free for years now and Anders has even taken measures to try and bring down the price. I think the price should be whatever he feels he needs to develop his vision and if that isn't incentive enough then leave. Everyone that sees this through will be able to reap the rewards of it.

 

I don't think there has been a single instance where Anders hasn't shown us that he's committed to making this the best user experience possible and that was without compensation. Very excited to see what he can accomplish when this project isn't a financial burden on him and his team. 

 

-Wick

#35288 Inaugural Tarnished Silver Biscuit Plate PreS 15

Posted by littleb on June 06, 2018 - 10:41 PM

Have you ever thought that Preseason has been a bit dull?  No pride or glory...... and certainly no fresh biscuits to eat!  Our world is clearly lacking in its namesake, so a group of us are having a pre-season friendly tournament to entertain us and thought we might as well drag you guys along for the ride as well. 

The teams involved this season are:

 

1. Pittsboro Plastic Attack - Long time BHL team freshly promoted from the 2nd spot, clearly threw the final games to get to 2nd and cover his mad ninja skills... . very sneaky!  We will have to keep an eye on him as it is rumored they use plastic swords to impale unsuspecting opponents during the game!  Watch those injuries!

 

2. Tullahoma Tomcats - Promoted in 1st at season's end and are letting everyone know it!  Coach Wendel thinks he is pretty awesome but he may have to keep that ego in check as he is up against some raw talent in this series.  His lads are clearly still in party mode and will need to ensure they get off the sauce if they want any chance of winning this prestigious piece of cra..... erm I mean this incredible trophy!  

 

3. Minnedosa Musketeers - SHL team for three seasons now and constantly riding Leopards coat tails.  It has driven them to depression where all manager Little signs are fat bastards that run over people and play for the garbage goals.  Some pundits give them a shot though, based solely on the fact there is biscuits involved and boy those boys love biscuits!  If they win good luck even making the locker room with them!

 

4. Deferiet Leopards - SHL team for three season and well established hard rockers!  When not on the ice you can catch them down at open mic night screeeeeeching on guitars and pretending they have vocal talent.  Probably the class of the tournament unless the hookers and blow get them.... ah the life of a celebrity!  

 

The rules for us are simple.... each team will play each other once in the pre season (I will do my best to keep an updated table in here.  Winner has the most points and if there happens to be teams level the tie breakers are results between teams level, goal difference and finally goals for.  If it is still tied after that I am going to set a poll up and we will all have a vote to see who wins!  We can't leave a tie at the top after all.... like any of us will play nice or share their biscuits!?!?!?!?

 

The draw is as follow first team is home:

 

Day 4 – 1 vs 2 (2-3 OT) and 3 vs 4 (5-3)

Day 5 – 1 vs 3 (2-4) and 2 vs 4 (2-0)

Day 6 – 4 vs 1 (3-4 SO) and 2 vs 3 (3-6)

 

In the event the home team doesn't send their game off..... please proceed to door number 3 where Olga the Norwegian Dom will whip you for your incompetence.  

 

That is all for now, if this goes off well I may look at ways to expand it for future seasons.  

 

 

Standings to date: pts - record - GF - GA

 

1. Minnedosa Musketeers - 9 - 3-0-0-0 - 15 - 8

2. Tullahoma Tomcats - 5 - 1-1-0-1 - 8 - 8

3. Pittsboro Plastic Attack - 3 - 0-1-1-1 - 8 - 10

4. Deferiet Leopards - 1 - 0-0-1-2 - 6 - 11

#34140 Adam Svennsson

Posted by Wendel Clark on April 09, 2018 - 10:36 AM

Dangles, season 9

Day 29: Adam Svennsson releases 93 overall defender from one team planning to cheat him into another team

Day 31: Cascade Locks Hounds Dogs (sonstone) sign this defender to prevent this cheat from happening, stuffs him into affiliates and does not use the player to his own club's benefit in any way.

Day 51: As soon as trade lock is lifted, the player is "traded" (for 39 year old, 56 overall = given for free) back to his original team as was the plan all along.

 

Thanks Lee, super fair thing to do and I thought this was worth mentioning in public.
