We're making a giant mod for TEW 2016 (....maybe TEW 2019?), crossing over tons of both real-world wrestlers and fictional characters. It's been a few years in the making, but after I decided to focus super hard on this, the end line is in sight! (...in early 2019, but believe it or not that's an improvement >_>). We can always use more help for fandoms we don't follow, or pics and bios, or...just talk to us we're lonely.

We are on the HOME STRETCH now, gentlemen and theoretical ladies! All feds should be at least input by the end of the month (hey some of you need to get yours ready) and then I will hopefully be able to slog through Free Agent Mountain by year's end. Then you guys do detail work while I playtest, and then we'll be close to done!

Muppets: 3 days
TNA: 2 days (9/day)

Disney: 3 days
LU: 3 days
CHIKARA: 3 days

Dec: FA
2019 Q1: Helper Turns/Playtesting
Q2: Cosmetics (hi lopen)/Playtesting
Q3: Finetuning
Q4: FWA DRAFT???

Or if you prefer the old system of progress:
Planning/statting: essentially done
Data entry: 90%
Detail work: 75%
Cosmetics: 3%

Once I get a real understanding of stats and balances I don't think it will be yo bad to get CHIKARA done. And I can give you all the info stuff and pics as well.

Trying to decide how to do starting wages still.

And I still can't input as I don't have the game.

don't worry about wages! They're automatic although IIRC that can be overriden if you really want

I'll slap some extra categories for stuff on there....probably tomorrow early afternoon

just to give you a head start on the kindsa things I WILL want help with:

-Everything on the main worker page in the editor except pic and bio if you're leaving those for Lopen (Tom will have taken a stab at some of it already, but you may want to tweak)
-Legacy, Alter Ego, Lifestyle, Physical, and Business where appropriate
-Moveset (may wish to use the move/moveset editors in some cases)
-Personality
-Performance
-In other parts of the editor....
-Tag Teams (please make a promotion-specific one if you want it used in a fed by default, and please make a non-specific one regardless)
-Angles, Gimmicks, Starting Injuries, and Match Types, if you wish to add any that are relevant
-Events, if desired. Either there will be a specific day of the month on the Company page, or you can just put everything on Mon 1 of the month you want and Tom will figure it out.
-Titles
-On the Company page, Hiring Rules if desired and take a peek at Product if desired.
-Relationships
-Chemistry

Things that fall under "Re-detailed" (Tom will probably solicit your input and then enter it himself):
-Stables
-Initial champions (and previous if we want to go that deep)
-Anything unusual about any contracts (gimmicks and pushes other than the default, special perks, non-random momentum/recent fortunes/gimmick ratings, expected roles, etc.)
-Announcers INCL EXPERIENCE
-Owners/bookers
-Starting storylines
-TV shows, if Cult or above
-PPV carriers, if Cult (?) or above
-Manager assignments
-Figureheads
-Momentum

like I said though I'll make spots on the sheet for most of that and be around to help ^^;

Statting is in the spreadsheet for the main CHIKARA roster but not the Free Agents. Working on the other stuff and have it mostly done at this point.

When do I need to have the Free Agents done?

-Moveset (may wish to use the move/moveset editors in some cases)
I can certainly throw in finishers or signatures if needed. Might need to do up a seperate spreadsheet or something though as there can be to many to put in a single cell.

-Angles, Gimmicks, Starting Injuries, and Match Types, if you wish to add any that are relevant
What are we talking about for Match types? Also should I note starting alignment?

-Events, if desired. Either there will be a specific day of the month on the Company page, or you can just put everything on Mon 1 of the month you want and Tom will figure it out.
I just noted the months so I guess Tom can figure it out? I assume they will just have monthly shows since they have no TV.

-Titles
Grand Championship (singles), Campeonatos de Parejas (tag), Young Lions Cup (assuming you can do an age based title? for 25 and under)

-On the Company page, Hiring Rules if desired and take a peek at Product if desired.
Didn't see a product section.

-Chemistry
I can at least set some of the main ones that I know are good together if you give me a place to do that.

Just like one or two finishers is fine! (or zero- it's purely cosmetic) Can fit three at most. Not sure where to put em tho >_> Heck you could just list them here if that's easier.

If there's any type of match stip CHIKARA uses that wouldn't have already been put in (like, I dunno, Elimination Chamber or Ultimate X or that kinda thing that you don't really see outside of its fed)

Oh derp I'll work on Product and Chemistry spots

Actually Product would def be easier to just do here if that's cool

Do they run a particular lot (or not a particular lot) of any of these? Does it matter whether it's a big event or small?
1v1
2v2
3v3
1v1v1
1v1v1v1

What % of the show is matches? (as opposed to angles) Does THAT change between big and small events?

Are they particularly known for
banning spinal impact stuff like piledrivers?
banning high risk stuff? (probably not in a lucha fed right >_>)
scripting or improvising all their matches?

Please rate the importance of these styles as None, Very Low, Low, Medium, Heavy, or Key Feature:
Traditional: (good guys v. bad guys in wrestling matches)
Mainstream: ("wrestling as entertainment")
Comedy:
Cult: (countercultural feel)
Risque:
Modern: (flashy indy-type stuff)
Realism: (stiff and practical and slow)
Hyper Realism: (MMA influence)
Hardcore:
Lucha:
Pure: ("wrestling as sport")
Daredevil: (crazy bumpzzz)

Would you consider their matches particularly intense? Dangerous?

They have women, right? Do they wrestle guys or have their own division?

The women generally wear clothes, right?

There are tecnicos and rudos, right?

Do they make a big deal about weight divisions?

EDIT: I usually try to keep Chem to one or so per fed, so that can go here too. There can be particular good/bad chemistry for Opponents, Manager/Clients, Teams, and Announcers.

Match Types
Tag team Eliminator. Four tag teams, 2 in at at time, elimination rules.
Cibernetico - 9 man tag. 2 teams of 9 where you tag in a set order and eliminate one person at a time. Final people left face off until only one remains, even if they were on the same team.

Moves are done.

Do they run a particular lot (or not a particular lot) of any of these? Does it matter whether it's a big event or small?
1v1, 2v2, 3v3 are the most common. They run 4 v 4 a lot. Very rarely run triple threat or fatal four way singles matches. No real change in types of matches for big or small shows.

What % of the show is matches? (as opposed to angles) Does THAT change between big and small events?
Small= 90% matches. Big=80% matches. Its mostly matches.

Are they particularly known for
Banning cursing and blading (family friendly!)
I'm really unsure on scripted or improvised but I would guess more scripted (but by no means fully)

Please rate the importance of these styles as None, Very Low, Low, Medium, Heavy, or Key Feature:
Traditional: (good guys v. bad guys in wrestling matches) - Heavy
Mainstream: ("wrestling as entertainment") - Medium? I mean they do definitely focus on the entertainment but wins and losses really matter.
Comedy: Key
Cult: (countercultural feel) - Medium
Risque: None
Modern: (flashy indy-type stuff) - Medium or heavy. Maybe
Realism: (stiff and practical and slow) - Very Low
Hyper Realism: (MMA influence) - None
Hardcore: Very Low
Lucha: Heavy
Pure: ("wrestling as sport") - Medium? I mean they do definitely focus on the entertainment but wins and losses really matter.
Daredevil: (crazy bumpzzz) - Medium

Maybe Lopen can weigh in on a few of those.

Would you consider their matches particularly intense? Dangerous?
Not usually. More dangerous than WWE for sure cause of high flying stuff but its often very lighthearted outside of the big matches.

They have women, right? Do they wrestle guys or have their own division?
Equal Rights Equal Fights. First ever woman to hold the top title in a non-female company.

The women generally wear clothes, right?
Definitely lol. Family Friendly PG entertainment.

There are tecnicos and rudos, right?
yes and they are called that.

Do they make a big deal about weight divisions?
None. Everyone fights everyone.

I think I'll be back on the TEW grind tomorrow, finish CHIKARA with the rest of Nov, do FA as usual for December, and if LU/Disney get statted I'll figure that out when we get there and if not I'll throw in a couple FAs.

Does this include the CHIKARA people I need to do? Cause if I don't get them done they are all real people that could likely be done by just taking their stats from a different mod.

I will likely not be getting to them this week though next week is a real possibility.

added a Pharaoh gimmick! Now that I think of it I'm kinda surprised we haven't seen more of those in IRL wrestling

also hey woo I can finally rename one of the SUPER SECRET PERSONA DUDEZ

....although now I realize I have no idea wtf is going on with the other because I was assuming this whole time it was gonna be Akechi and he doesn't have Asmodeus...but I assume there's gonna be a final good route dungeon/boss that comes kinda outta left field
