1. In Tactics page: keep the green/red effort counter forever, not only for new players
2. In Tactics page: Keep the stars (importance of each skill) forever, not just for new players.
3. Have (at least) one flat Time Trial in Tour de France. Longer or shorter, but it should always have at least one flat TT.
4. World Challenges: 10 to 15 races, only those which are constant in every year (like San Remo, Amstel, Fleche, Roubaix, Lombardia, maybe some stages from Tours)

Just my opinions, of course ;)

1- At moment only in 3rd or 4th, make all you make mistakes likes me a lot
2-It is for all players
3- Random, Could be 3 or none as other tours
4-Umm, difficult system, I need your tactics to try in 3rd season the new system, maybe 1st round with stages small tours, 2nd roudn stages big tours, and 3r round A classics. Until we have 3 seasons I can't program this new system, I did a primary version .

Osca, are you planning on having 9 cyclists on a team still or will you be reducing that number (maybe to 5 or 7)?

Osca, are you planning on having 9 cyclists on a team still or will you be reducing that number (maybe to 5 or 7)?

At moment the same, only absolute NT.

To try during BETA
-This night most of achievements ( process at 00.05)
Until stage 50 , test training, scout, races, classements, points , tour updates.
-Stage 50-51 calendar for next season.
-Before end of season : training camp in next season and elections.
END OF SEASON: too many processes
-Next season: Cff cup and NT races
-In 2 seasons: New World Challenge ( I need your tactics in 1st, 2nd, 3rd division and choose races because with variable calendar is complex for me).

Have you thought about an U25 NT? I think two will be manageable for most countries.
Title: Re: [English] - Suggestions
Post by: oscacom on October 29, 2018, 08:15:27 PM
At moment only absolute.

If I add one more in future U21 or U23, now with less time to improve cyclists will be in NT before.
Not happy due difficult to find NT for all countries.

U25 not sense now.

great idea! GC riders win less stages/one-day races, but their GC wins should be reflected somehow

I don't like these icons due they are all victories and it is not the same in 1st, 2nd 3rd or 4th division .
I prefer always see history in every cyclist, in thee page at end of season only you can see top position in 1a.

Hello Everyone  ;)
Thanks for new, better game and they are my suggestions :
1. Change main colors of start window because they are in CFF too
2. Extend the way for Flat/Climb Time Trialist to have a icons (I saw cyclist with silver at age 22 in CFF)
3. If you can - lock some stages in big Tours f.e. 10stage in Paris in TdF or some climbing stages because big tour without typical stage for climbers is not for "tours" cyclist. Or do a random without lock f.e. in stage 8 of TdF will be to Risoul to Tourmalet or to Pla a'Det(climb stages) to avoid tours for cobblers/sprinters (they have classics with a lot points to rankings).
4. Itzuria small tour is a tour of Basque Country? If yes you can change the name of race to better.
5. Form - that schould be changed because less races, the same max 20 riders in team.
6. In Team Rankings panel you can do how many points teams are loosing to the leader or/and column with the cyclist with the most points in the team.
7. And some new... if you want you can do a half of star (example - **' (2,5 star)) in  results cyclist panel it will be more interesting to see more changes in evolution of riders.

And one question... whence some players know and write in Comments the cyclist talent points?

There is my statistics about this season stages (if it will be useful) :
9 Puncher stages
4 Puncher-Sprinter
13 Flat Sprinter
9 Cobbler-Puncher
5 Flat/Sprint Cobbler 
8 Flat/Flat-Puncher Time Trials
2 Mountain TT
13 Mountain stages
18 Mountain-Puncher
10!(too many i think) Mountain-Sprinter

Thanks again for new game
Greetings  :D

I have been thinking about the calendar and the amount of Tours in a season. For me the ratio of tours/one day races is good in CFF2.

If i look at the stage we have 3 grand tours and 9 small tours now (actually 2 small tours more than in CFF2) for a total of 75/91 tour stages per season. Between the Tour of Romandie and the end of the Vuelta are 2 one day races now.

It doesnt feel balanced. I think there could be two options for this:
1 Replace some small tours for one day races
2 reduce the amount of stages per tour (My preference) to 4 days for a small tour and 9 for a grand tour. Because almost 1/3 races is a grand tour in the new calendar. That also feels like too much.

Option 2 would lead to 60/91 races for tours and 31 one day races. much more similar to CFF2 which feel very well balanced with 65/118 races tours.

It is also possible to add a few races because we end the season halfway during the week.

Ps. I support the idea of Team Elrosportu to have some fixed stages per Tour to keep the character. Right now most tours dont feel unique or, again, balanced. For example the Volta a catalunya. You only need climbing, flat, sprint and TT now. Or the Tour with 4 flat sprints, 2 climbing sprint and 1 cobble sprint and 2 cobble hill stages. Only one hillclimb and no TT. Doesnt feel like a TdF to me.


Ps2. I would also keep Lombardia as the last race of the season. As it is in real life.

Patience, 1 day races in tours are races too and people must choose if they play for tour or for race, sometimes is useful play for 1 day races in tours.
Other 1 day races don't have this problem everybody have same goal.

Calendar is random and never it will be balanced for everyone but this 1st year some specialities are not included, as I said 20-25% of stages will be new or redesigned next year.

when someone gets elected as NT/U21/U23 manager, send in-game message to inform.
In CFF2, I was not a candidate, but I am U21 manager, and did not notice it until now... Lost 2 races

Now, with the new calendar, seasons finish on Thursdays.

I believe it would be an interesting fact, to make the days between that Thursday and the following Sunday (the three days in which we are right now) useful regarding transfer market, as it was a little preseason to make some transfers in order to improve or change your team.

Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, the colour of the last two sections are a very dark red (probably not helped by the many vertical black lines and the narrowness of the coloured band), and could be mistaken for a possible brown (mountain section) rather than cobbles (red), particularly if somebody doesn't have the benefit of supporter status.  Noticing this, I then noticed that the colours of mountain & cobbles sections on different races were not standard, and very from light/dark, and varied shading.
As such, I'd recommend a standardisation of colours, light brown for mountain, light/mid red for cobbles, etc, so it's visually clear what each section in every race is.

I would love to know where Osca gets all of these race pics from.  Do you make them up yourself or do you have every official race program from the beginning of time?

95% I have to search profiles, I put in my excel altitude and after I make a profile. After I pass to photoshop to put colours ,sections, mountains...
5% I make my own routes to give Cff the stages the game needs ( some time trials or cobbles races)

There had been a question months ago whether the training bonus for u24 was too great, and seeing my 23 year old climbers close to 100 in climb, downhill, stamina, and 80+ (by end of season) in hills, I suspect the question has merit.

As such, if a tweak is warranted, I would like to make the suggestion of 3+ old speed for 19-21 year olds, then 2+ old speed for 22-23 year olds.

Why ? :D
I mean, why do you think would a multi-skilled rider be a bad thing ? Feel free to train them in flat, or in TT, or sprint form now on
Remember that starting with 24 yo there will be a slight decrease, by almost 1 skill point per season. So you would still need to train them in the high skills.
Yes, having 3 skills in 95+ is more than CFF2, but why is that bad...?
It will be a more tactical game; the skills are going to be more level, so managers' race tactics will be more important. On the other hand - the multi skills. Personally, I think it will be more fun like this :) (IMHO, of course)

Training speed is good for me, you must know actually due some bugs you have more than 10-20 extra training sessions full speed than future game.

In achievements, there's a bunch of u23 race achievements.  I think they should be disabled when the main game starts until the 1st gen cyclists are 26-27, because it defeats the value of the achievement if it's awarded when every cyclist is u23.

Probably no - CFF3 is supposed to be "light"-er on the server requirements, and Osca has explained that drafts were consuming too many resources. So as much as we enjoyed drafts, it is most likely gone for good... On top of that, all rider pulls are 19 years old, so drafts become a little redundant...

How about a personal information page ingame?

It would be nice to write where your from, a little about your team (or the manager) or whatever you feel.

This option is already there for riders, but not for the team/manager. :).

Could we have a CFF Cup 2, for teams ranked 129-256 in CFF Rankings...?  8)
I mean for teams who did not make it into the "normal" CFF Cup.
Maybe call it "CFF Trophy"  ;D
