#6 Redesigning Run Plays and Power21


Recommended Posts

Hello Coaches!


Welcome to another Dev Diary for NewSim on SimFBA! Today's topic is one that has been a long time coming. Thankfully, I have finally finished my undergraduate degree and now have more time to code and implement NewSim! That means we should all be seeing more progress from now on.


So with all that out of the way, let's talk about what was done that is worth doing a Dev Diary over. Well, thanks to a lot help from @TuscanSota, I was able to redesign the way we model plays to include directions. Previously, the sim was agnostic to direction. This means it will now matter where you put your players on the field (which DE plays LE or RE? which OT at LT or RT? etc). This also means we can properly implement a certain type of play that shall not be named....


This means we also have a new way of modelling run plays. So what we will do from now on is develop a certain play one at a time, based out of different offensive personnel. This time, I present to you: Power21 (Power out of 21 personnel).

vs. 4-3 to the right:




vs. 3-4 to the left:




vs. 3-4 to the right:




Those were all simmed with NewSim!


The next step will be to do some data analysis on tackling algorithms, etc. Then we will work on adding a few more run plays. If you have a suggestion for what plays we should do next, please include them below with what personnel they should be out of!


Until next time,
