The Sim-Nation Experience Sim-Nation is a place for honest-to-goodness college football fans. Each member is equally responsible for creating the very best college football experience for all. Stick jocks need not apply. Cheesers ... don't even think about it. In Sim-Nation, respect for each other, and the game itself, is much, much more important than wins and losses. With that goal in mind, we make changes on a regular basis to make each and every game a reflection of the real thing. That means: A realistic CPU opponent, stats in line with reality, recruiting that does not unbalance the game, and anything else we can think of that will bring balance. Plain and simple - Sim-Nation does it right.

We advance no less than once every three days, but typically advance before that deadline. Sliders and Difficulty Settings We take great care in trying to recreate an authentic college football game each week. Our sliders are difficult, and they will get more difficult as we move on. This is not the place for sissies who can't take a loss. The CPU is a dangerous opponent here in "Sim-Nation" and we expect guys to understand that. Each off-season, we adjust sliders to compensate for the trends we see occurring within the game. Each season, wins are harder to come by. Position Changes Position changes must be posted for the league members to review. If any league member takes issue with a position change, the commish may deny the change. This is unlikely to happen, but it helps to put it out there just in case. Activity & Forum Presence We're busy, but we take the time to interact with the other coaches. We read and post in our forums every day, and we keep the league up to date on our games and recruiting classes. Small post-game summaries are required at least half the time, and a recruiting summary is to be posted in the summary section of our forums. Failure to do this for more than one week at a time will result in a sim being given for the current week. Basically, go two weeks without posting post-game stuff, and week three will be a simmed game.
