USFL '86: Shadow Market 1.0.0

5 Screenshots

About This File

A continuation of my hypothetical USFL series. Narrative up soon. 




-7 minute quarters
-Stats after every quarter
-Wedge Returns
-Directional Punting
-Graphic Tweaks, including funky end zones 
-Stat Tweaks

-Sim Data Tweaks

-Offensive Formation Tweaks 
-3 team, 3 Division Structure
-12 teams make playoffs (as opposed to original 8 teams)
-18 game, locked, custom schedule
-All Pro: '86 All-NFL Vs. '86 All-USFL (I had to make modifications: Dennis Gentry, Bobby Joe Edmonds, and Tim McGee all made ALL-NFL as Special Teams Players; some other modifications based on ALL-AFC or ALL-NFC) 


Player allocation was based on a mix of the 1986 territorial and Open Drafts, narrative flourishes, and '85 NFL final cuts. In terms of NFL player cuts: I placed players based on their USFL draft status or regional proximity of their college or through research.
