    The End Of Commissioner Mode?

    Commissioner Mode has been around forever. I had the brilliant idea to track "Mogul Scores" and to only show them in white if you had achieved that score without "cheating". But Baseball Mogul is a "sandbox" game. You play to see what happens more than you play to get a high score or unlock achievements.

    So ... does anyone still care about Commissioner Mode? Or is it be more trouble than it's worth. For example I just exchanged a few emails with a someone who thought the Trades Screen was "broken" they couldn't offer any trades. I finally figured out they were in Commissioner Mode, which causes the "Offer Trade" button to be replaced by a "Force Trade" button.

    I realize this isn't a problem for most people reading this forum people who have played Baseball Mogul a lot. But it still seems like it would be better interface design for both of those buttons to be available (Offer Trade & Force Trade). Or would that just be too "tempting" to force a trade after a few rejections?

    So you're saying that all the features of commissioner mode will still be available without actually going into commissioner mode? If so, that would have no impact on game play, at least to me.

    I'd be fine with it as the computer rarely approves real world trades so to make them I have o go to Commissioner mode. It would save me the trouble if I could make real world trades without doing this.

    I care about it because it's how I'm able to edit players. Unless I can do that without it?
    Bill Mueller was the best third baseman in the year 2003. He was not the best third baseman when I wrote my first signature, because that was in 2001...

    If it were me I would leave commissioner mode alone while in the help highliting the difference in the force trade button being available in commissioner mode and explain that moreso if it's not already explained there. I don't mind having to switch to it if needed. That doesn't bug me.

    Absolutely not. There is no other way to edit a player, alter stadiums, etc. I do this constantly.
