Accumulated Cash Tracker
Stadium Renovation, Upgrade, and Rebuilding
At the end of every season, each teams final balance will be recorded into a spreadsheet (to be posted / maintained in the Dugout forums).
Final balance’s will be tallied and will accumulate from year to year.
There will be no ceiling on how much cash you can earn / accumulate, however there will be a floor value of -$125M (meaning while you can still lose money, you wont go more negative in cumulative balance than $125M).
Teams will be able to use these cumulative funds to renovate, upgrade, and possibly even rebuild their stadiums.
Renovations and upgrades may only be made during the offseason (Sims #1 - #4 in the offseason).
New stadiums may be purchased at any time, but take a full offseason and season to complete.
Renovation and Upgrade Information:
There are a few options available when renovating / upgrading your stadium. You may purchase seats to expand capacity or you may purchase upgrades to increase your fan interest.
You may add up to 5,000 extra seats to an existing stadium during its lifetime.
Seats may be purchased in lots of 500 at the cost of $3.5M per 500.
Capacity of any stadium may not exceed 57,500.
+1 Fan Interest - $15M - Concession Upgrade.
+2 Fan Interest - $28M - Fan Interaction Center.
+4 Fan Interest - $54M - In Seat Monitors with MLB Gameplan.
+6 Fan Interest - $79M - New Massive HD Video Board.
All “renovations” are one time purchases, but more upgrades will be made available in the future
As a base, stadiums cost starts at $500M and include 35,000 seats.
New seats may be purchased at the cost of $5M per 500 seats.
Stadium seating may not exceed 57,500.
Each teams city may contribute to the cost of the stadium based on their market size. The following is a list of those contributions:
Market Size: Minimal - $200M
Market Size: Tiny - $180M
Market Size: Small - $160M
Market Size: Below Avg - $140M
Market Size: Avg - $120M
Market Size: Above Avg - $100M
Market Size: Rather Big - $80M
Market Size: Big - $60M
Market Size: Very Big - $40M
Market Size: Huge - $20M
Market Size: Astronomical - $0
Each city will also contribute $4M per year towards the purchase of a new stadium with a cap of $100M.
Upon purchasing your stadium you will declare what type of park you want, your park factors will then be randomized with the following chances:
LH / RH Avg chances of .950 - 1.150.
LH / RH HR chances of .950 - 1.300.
LH / RH Avg chances of .850 - 1.050.
LH / RH HR chances of .700 - 1.050
LH / RH Avg chances of .900 - 1.100.
LH / RH HR chances of .900 - 1.100.
Doubles and Triples will always be random:
Doubles chances of .800 - 1.300.
Triples chances of .600 - 1.650.
Once you build a stadium you must wait another 15 seasons before you can build another one.
Once a stadium is built you may modify the random park factors.
Park factors may only be modified during the offseason (Sims #1 - #4).
Park factor changes are capped at .050 change per factor.
Each change of .010 will cost $20M.
Building a new stadium will also result in the following changes once it is complete:
+1 to Market Size for 2 years.
+1 to Fan Loyalty.
+10 to Fan Interest.
Stadium Type and Surface Type are up to GM purchasing the stadium and are no additional cost regardless of choice.
You will also be required to give park dimensions and wall heights when applying for a new stadium.
While you control the dimensions / wall heights of the stadium, they must be approved before the park can be built (please keep them realistic).
You will also be required to submit a new name for the stadium. These are also subject to approval (please keep them as realistic as possible).
Renovation / Upgrade Requests
For renovation / upgrade requests, please create a new thread with your team name and the type of change your wanting to make (IE: renovation, seating upgrade, rebuild). Please make a new thread for each upgrade you're doing, this will help us track / process the changes easier.
