Title: Stallion Awards
Post by: JasonCameron on March 31, 2005, 09:05:34 am
 Seeing as we're going

through this whole cool thing with finding lineage through the chef-de-race thing, maybe we

should have awards for sires too?

I'm not sure what there is over in the US, but maybe

catagories like...
Champion 2YO Sire
Champion 3YO Sire
Champion Sire
Leading First Season

Sire

I dunno, just a random idea I had that might be kinda helpful for people when it

comes to breeding time. Plus, as an advantage for stallion owners, it would hike the value of

your stud up heaps if he won an award at the end of the year. :)

Yay? Nay? Thoughts?

 I think it would be cool but

I have a feeling one or two studs would dominate all the categories. Still sounds cool

though.

 Yeah... But that's alright,

cos it happens in RL too. I mean Danehill dominated 2YO sire and champion sire [maybe 3yo

sire] over here for ages, well, right up until he died pretty much. of course first season

changes every year though, so that's quite cool. :)

 enh, I think that's getting

towards too many awards.  It's up to Shanthi obviously, but I dunno.

 I know we have heaps of

racehorse awards, but we don't really have anything to recognise some of the outstanding

sires in the game other than the chef-de-race thing. I'm sure that you wouldn't complain if

one of your studs won Champion 2YO Sire... :P But yeah, we have a heap of awards so I guess

if we implement something then yay and if not then ohwell. :D

 I might not complain, but I

wouldn't really care either ;)  He can be at the top of the top 10 list and it'd be the

same thing.  I just don't want to have to read through all the extra crap in stud ads.  

Hence why I never advertise my studs ;)

 Yeah, sorry Jason (and

everyone else who got excited by Jason's idea despite its lack of pre-approval).  No go.  As

Andrea said, we already have a TON of awards, and we really don't need any more.  If your

stud sires amazing 2yos, just say that, and people can either believe you, or look up his

2yos to see for themselves.

 Maybe if Shanthi or I get

horribly bored at some point we'll put a button up showing foal race records for each

stud... so you could see total 2yo race records for all foals, total 3yo, etc.  So like the

breakdown for horses' races.  But I'm not sure how taxing that'd be on the DB and it's

unlikely to be a priority as there isn't really any code to "steal" to do that.  Just,

don't expect it soon if at all.

 That'd be kinda cool! :)

But yeah, we have enough way too awesome stuff coming up so I really don't feel all that

worried about this kinda stuff... :D
