Your first read – what to look for when dissecting a STAD table prior to assigning a stadium
The two columns you should look under right off the bat are STYP and SRES. STYP is the indicator which dictates whether the stadium in question will follow the SRES values or a bunch of other values that you don’t need to know for this tutorial. If the STYP is 0, that indicates to Madden that the game will follow the SRES value. If STYP is 1, that means it will not follow the SRES value, but instead it will follow the SP(x) values.
SRES controls the stadium 3D model of each stadium. They range from 0-49, with 0-45 being NFL/NFL Europe stadiums and 46-49 being practice fields. This value alone dictates the stadium’s features with exceptions mentioned in later sections.
Now if a stadium follows SP(x) values, which as I mentioned means that the STYP = 1, that means that stadium is a custom stadium. The SP(x) values dictate stuff like the 1st level of the south end zone, 2nd level, etc. And all the other fun stuff you decide when you build a custom stadium. This info is included in the field notes that are posted on the FF wiki. Sign up and download it if you haven’t already. I will not be repeating that info here.
The coverage has been exposed – how to look for one on one matchups a.k.a. exceptions to the SRES
After you’ve assigned your team a stadium of your choice, there are two other in game features you may be interested in editing.
The field is something that doesn’t affect your game at all but to some, it enhances their experience. For this you will need to scan the SFTY value. The values found there are defined as follows
Code: Select all
SFTY Field type
1 Artificial turf
6 Grassy turf
You will also want to check whether your stadium is climate controlled or not. This is done by scanning the STRY value. 0 = no and 1 = yes.
Last chance to audible – miscellaneous items
Of course, there are also things you can play around with. Stuff like team names and stadium names are self explanatory. You can also edit stuff like SCAP which controls stadium capacity but the subsections like SCCS (stadium capacity club seats), SCLL (lower level seats), SCLB (luxury boxes), etc are things in owner mode that control how much product you have to sell at each section. You have to edit those yourself.
SRAT is one you should monitor as it controls stadium rating which also influences whether fans are staying away because your stadium is a dump. If it’s above 80 or so, then that means your stadium is in good condition while your team sucks. If it’s below that, it means your stadium and your team sucks. See what I did there
