Post Listed Races?
Do simple listed/blacktype/ungraded stakes races no longer exist? I see a lot of feature handicaps and feature allowances but I can't find a single ungraded stakes. Makes the whole game feel off IMO.

The default schedules reverted back to SO5, which lacked depth in the schedule.

I'll be releasing SO7 schedules for almost all the countries in about a week once I test all of them. That includes far more depth than the base game. Tho with the horse entry logic all messed up and far worse than it was in SO6, not sure how well any schedules will work.

Hey MJ, how have you been? I figured you'd be releasing a schedule soon! Although, I expected it would only be the US. This is a pleasant surprise.

I'll be playing a UK game until then. Whats going on with the entry system? I haven't really played much yet.

I've been well. Been a busy past few months now that I've moved back to NJ, but been well. Glad to be back modding another Starters Orders tho - not sure what I'd do with my free time without it lol.
And good to see you back on the forums! How have you been?

I actually randomly decided on day last summer to do full showcases for all the countries - took a good few months but finally got them down. Now just need to get them all up and running in SO7. And finish my US 2019 Schedule, which is just about done. I swear I've spent more time modding this series than playing, but I'm always searching for the perfect schedule.

Not sure how it is for other countries yet, but in the US game, horses of all ages are running 20+ times a year, with 3yos putting up 8-12 races before May. It's worse than what SO6 had. We still have horses running back on one day rest and even some running twice on the same day. AI entry logic seems completely out of wack!

Well we definitely need a new schedule. There aren't enough races in the current one for one or two horses, let alone a stable (in the US). Plus weird things like the Travers being 3yo+, what a strange decision.

Oh and sorry I didn't respond sooner since I have been online. Idk its just not showing up that people are replying to my posts, I thought I remembered it popping up somewhere when you were logged in that you had a new reply. Maybe I'm misremembering though, I've been on reddit a lot and that site makes sure you know if someone replies to you.

We should have our own subreddit! Mark should make it so that he's the mod.

How does it feel being back in Jersey? Do you ever visit Belmont in NY? I was talking to people in a horse racing subreddit and found out that outside Belmont Stakes day the track isn't that crowded on other big days. That if you get there early you can easily get a grandstand seat overlooking the finish line. Its tempting now, I have to say to show up for Stars and Stripes Day (Belmont Oaks and Belmont Derby among other races), along with showing up for the Jockey Club Gold Cup, Flower Bowl, Champagne, and Frizette. Why do those lot have to be so close together though without being the same days? I mean driving from Suffolk County out there 2 days in a row is a no-go. 2 weekends in a row may be a no-go, I'd have to pick between JCGC and Champagne. If I was planning to gamble I'd take JCGC day for a certainty, 2yos are not my strong suit they change too much too quickly for me to ever feel confidant about anything
