Saving fights for forums

UMS 2 has a feature that allow you to save a fight in formatted text. This way you can post the fights in forums taking all the power forums allow you to decore text. As you can see this was done with the mma e-feds in mind but I’m sure you can find other useful uses to this tool.

The button is this one.

Once we have a fight we can click that button and we will see a window that we can customize to add any tags we want.

This feature will be expanded in future versions.

How to make a card

3. Right click over a fighter. A popup menu will appear. There are three options that are useful for making a card.

  • Add to fight: This option will add the fighter to the card. If there is no fights in the card, a new fight will be created and the fighter will be put there. If there is a already a fight with only one fighter, the fighter will be added to that fight.
  • Add to fight and find an opponent: The fighter will be selected and added to the fight with a randomly chosen opponent.
  • Add to fight and find an opponent (SW): The fighter will be selected and added to the fight with a randomly chosen opponent of his same weightclass.

What is “Training status”?

A feature added in the last version of UMS is the training status. Training status may be enabled in the Configuration tab, checking the “Enable fighterstraining status” checkbox.

Training status is calculated when the fighter enters the cage. It modifies all the other status attributes (such as Defense Bonus, Accuracy bonus…). When the training status is low the fighter’s performance will drop. The training status is calculated mostly with the Heart attribute. It represents that fighters with higher focus and fight spirit will train harder and will come to the fight with better options.
