Phil Parent Posted May 9, 2006 Share Posted May 9, 2006 Hello! With E3, Time has come for me to bring a little light to my ongoing data project for WreSpi 2. [B]Introduction[/B] First I want to say, this will not be done under the RaveX banner. It won't be done under any banner. The name of the data set, "The Kings Of Kings" is not a new banner, it's just a distinctive name for the data set. RaveX was me and Jeff. Jeff has no time anymore, and frankly, what he's doing is more important than this, it's REAL LIFE. Myself alone, I'm not capable of being RaveX anymore. Thus the name is sealed. I've gotta say, I didn't think I would do this, after stopping work on RaveX Updates, I thought I was through with data work. I figured I'd stay on Team Ryland one last game as a tester/idea guy to fulfill my commitment and then leave the sim world completely. Then, two things happened. First, I got a great idea for a sim feature on a sleepless night as I was going through splitting with my wife and entering celibacy. That idea is NOT League Mode as you'll see it as WreSpi 2, although that was the derivative Adam created from it as a way to test the waters to see if the base idea for the whole deal would fly. I hope it will. Then it came upon me that I had an actual data format in mind for that sim feature, and started work on that data, first on paper, then in Works Database, and now it's starting to be made into WS2 format. [B]Concept & Details[/B] The idea for the data is an all-time all-styles all-star roster of wrestlers and promotions. - "All-Time" means just that. Any promotion/wrestler dead or alive, young or old. Bridging the eras to bring together the greats and oppose men who never had a chance to fight each other. Bridging the times to bring together the great promotions/eras of the past on one level plain field. It also means having those greats in their prime or in their younger years, not in their diminished state of later in their career. - "All-Styles" means that wrestlers/promotions from every major wrestling country will be in, and wrestling from every style, from the vintage Pro-Am style of the late 19th, early 20th century to Sports-Entertainment, Hardcore wrestling, Shoot-Style wrestling will be represented. - "All-Star" means that the data set is not an exhaustive directory of all the wrestlers that wrestled ever. Case in point, each promotion will be limited to 20 wrestlers. I'll select the wrestlers that were the best in each promotion at that time. At this time, unnofficially, the data is set to include 400 wrestlers, plus worker entries for authority figures, announcers, etc... [B]Confirmed Info[/B] The following are confirmed as promotions in The Kings Of Kings. When I say confirmed, it is because they are in the database. Anything not in the database will not be listed. In parentheses, is the authority figure in charge of the promotion, also confirmed as non-wrestling workers. I'm not telling the creative direction of each fed just yet, although you can use the promoter confirmed to helm the promotion as an hint of what era/roster the fed will champion. Some creative liberties were taken, as a worker can only control one company at a time and this setup would have required a certain well known billionaire to control three at once. [b]- American Wrestling Association (Verne Gagne)[/b] - Crockett Promotions (Jim Crockett) - Extreme Championship Wrestling (Paul Heyman) - National Wrestling Alliance (Sam Muchnick) - WCW/NWO (Eric Bischoff) - World Wide Wrestling Federation (Vince McMahon Sr) - World Wrestling Entertainment (Stephanie McMahon) - WWF Attitude (Vince McMahon) - WWF Rock & Wrestling (Jack Tunney) The following are confirmed wrestlers in The Kings Of Kings. Then again, they are confirmed because there are in-game and functional. Nothing is listed if it isn't in-game. - Bill Goldberg (WCW/NWO) - Bruno Sammartino (WWWF) - Hulk Hogan (WWF R&W) - Kurt Angle (WWE) - Lou Thesz (NWA) - Ric Flair (Crockett) - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin (Attitude) - Taz (ECW) - The Shooto Lion (Freelance) [b]- Verne Gagne (AWA)[/b] Confirmations Are As Of May 25th. [B]Release Date[/B] What is done will be released on WreSpi 2 Launch Day. And that is that. Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
