How to add new names to the random fighter creator

You asked for this release for a way that allowed add new names and countries to the random fighter creator process. Here is a little tutorial of how to do it:

1. Open the Utils folder in the UMS install folder. Open the Names folder inside it.

2. You will see a few files inside. Open the file named Names_Codes.txt. You can create a backup of this file in case something goes wrong. Open it. You will see something like this:

Names_Codes.txt file format

The format of each line is the following:

[FILE_NAME];[COUNTRY1];[COUNTRY2];…

E.G:

English;United Kigdon;USA;Canada

3- For adding new countries to the current ones but with the same language (let’s say we want to add Ireland to the fighters creator) we just have to add it after the last one of the list we want to add:

English;United Kigdon;USA;Canada;Ireland

The sim will create names using the english name files and the fighter country will be United Kingdom, USA, Canada or Ireland.

4- For adding whole new file names you have to create a new line. Let’s say we want to add italian names. We have to add a new line to the file:

Italian;Italy

We must add two new files to the Names folder:

Italian_Names.txt and Italian_Surnames.txt

Inside of those folder, one in each line, you can add new names and surnames.

5- Be sure you don’t leave blank lines in the Names_Codes.txt file. Close all the files. The Fighter Editor will use your names in the random fighter generator process.

UMS 2.0.7: More on Organizations

UMS 2.0.7 is almost ready. I’m very happy with all the changes and fixes that I have made. I have added new features to the Organizations Explorer. You can see more information of the organizations bringing more life to UMS 2.

Organizations Explorer Main View

Organizations Explorer Main View

In the pic above you can see the top panel where you can choose the organization by clicking in its logo. In the Organization Info tab you have a summary of the Organization including fans favourite fighters and the places where the organization has the best and the worst reputation.

Champions and records info

Champions and records info

In this pic you can see at a glance who is the champion of any weightclass and who are the top contenders in the organization. You can also have records information, like the fastest KO or the fighter who did more damage to his opponent.

All these changes make the organizations simulation deeper.

UMS 2.0.7: Organizations’ World Reputation

I am working in a new feature of next UMS 2 version. In the previous installment of the sim there is only one value for the organizations’ reputation: Org Hype. This is not very realistic because in someplaces big organizations like UFC can be behind local organizations, like DREAM in Japan.

The next version of the sim will contemplate this fact and you will be able to see organizations reputation in different places. The world has been divided in these places in order to bring more realism to the sim:

Organizations reputation around the world

Organizations reputation around the world

  • North America.
  • South America.
  • Europe.
  • Asia.
  • Japan (Yes, Japan is in Asia, but I think making this distinction in reasonable since Japan is a very strong MMA country)
  • Australia.

This way when you make an event in some place your reputation may go higher in that place but you can also lose interest in the fans of other places of the world. The challenge is make your organization world wide admired.

This feature will be expanded in future versions.
