Sandbox Simulations is open for business! Sign up now!
 
Not available in stores! Buy now! Special price of only $1 for a limited time only. We're up and running!

Go to www.sandboxsimulations.com to sign up. (You can learn more about the game as well.)

For the time being, we set the price to $1, and we can't limit it to just the game testers, so if you're interested, you'll also get the $1 price. Just sign up.

This is a fresh reset, so everyone will have new teams and we'll do a new draft.

Also, please give us any feedback about what you like or don't like, and how we can improve navigation. We've updated all of the systems, so there's a chance that errors are lurking somewhere, but we think we're good to go now. Let us know if something bad happens to you.

As we're spotchecking, the first e-mail you'll get may have some formatting issues. We've found that and are working to fix it. But it still works.

When you sign up, would you let us know if you get a confirmation e-mail? We're seeing an unexpected issue here.

We're watching from the inside. We got the $1 payment from you and see you registered on vbulletin, but we're not yet showing you in the league. Did you get to the point of picking a team name (and hitting submit afterwards)?

Sorry - we're making you guys earn your discounted membership.

Did you get to the part where you pay your dollar and pick a team? We're wondering if you completed Part 1 of team initiation (registering on the site), but not Part 2 (payment and team naming). We're trying to figure out if we need better signage.

Awesome. Did you get through the payment process and naming process okay? I see you showing up on paypal, though I haven't gotten the formal notification yet. I suspect you're in good shape and the system is just updating.

Did you click the vbulletin registration in your e-mail? It should take you to the vbulletin site and give you instructions on what to do next. (Hint: Go to the "play" button.)

brorth 02-24-2019 06:48 PM

It was a little wonky, but I got through it. I'm still waiting for the "Play" button to replace the "register" button, though. I suspect you're right about the update.

This does sound like a trafficking ring. Make sure to reply "Bob" in your reply.

If you close out and then go back to sandboxsimulations.com, it should take you to the classic sandbox user panel rather than the forum. Does that work?

And the user panel will be deactivated while we're waiting on the teams to fill up.

I'm curious because I see your payment in paypal, but I haven't yet gotten an email notification and I don't see you registered as a team yet. We'll give it a bit more time just to see if it's still percolating through the system.

wheeler08 02-24-2019 07:00 PM

I think I’m in. I never seen the play button either. The link in email kept taking me to vbulliten page. So I closed it then clicked on link in OP. Then clicked something on that page and it took me to team name.

The "play" button is on the upper left side of the forum page.

wheeler08 02-24-2019 07:02 PM

I think it says 6 or 8 of 24 teams taken. What happens after 24 people? Another league starts?

Yes, and our leauge starts. You'll get some players assigned and the draft (where you can draft players better than Brock Oswieler) will start 24 hours after that.

Hmm, yeah, we need to make that more intuitive. We're a little worried that the two-step process isn't easy to follow, but we kind of need to do it that way.

After you register, you end up on a sandbox-themed page like this. You then go to the upper left to the "Play" button, as shown.

wheeler08 02-24-2019 07:12 PM

Honest question, is this something just for Chiefsplanet people, or is this something you will market and look to make a lot of money from?

The latter. It's our path to affluence.

You'll see on the site that the normal price will be $18. We're offering a kindness rate to Chiefsplanet because people helped us a lot with the game testing when it was in development.

Unfortunately, no. Per the Game Manual...

Changing Team Name and City

What it is: Impossible.

When you can do it: Never.

Where it is: Maybe in some alternate univsere

We know, it's fun to re-name your team every week, but this isn't fantasy football. This is Sandbox football, where the teams are real (kind of) and the sport is serious. Your team and league is in it for the long haul, and if you change your name all the time it really screws with our databases, y'know what I mean?

When a new team is created, you can choose from a list of cities and teams, and that's it. That's the city, that's the team. Unless you're Art Modell, you can't recreate a team's identity.

Yeah, I'm showing you in paypal, but still no notification that's supposed to automatically come to me (which is not part of our system, just part of paypal). Did you get to the part about getting your team name?

If not, get out of the site and go to www.sandboxsimulations.com. Then see if you have a tab that says "play" here. If you do, click it and tell us what happens.

Yeah, there's definitely a fear of missing out effect there. It was predestined that I would be the Ermines, but if Ermines wasn't such a great name, it would be hard to scroll those lists and make a decision.

I actually took about ten minutes to decide between Ermines, Fighting Ermines, and Flying Ermines.

Rain Man 02-24-2019 07:52 PM

As a little Sandbox trivia, when the league is full, you'll be assigned to a conference and division based on your latitude and longitude. That way your team will have good regional rivalries and will save travel time on road trips.

For you pioneers, it'll be a one-time $1 fee, which we're charging just to be sure that the payment system works. For commercial players, it'll be $18 per year.

wheeler08 02-25-2019 09:40 AM

How do we tell if the system thinks a player is good or not? Is there a rating system like Madden? Or is everyone a clean slate and you just have to know every player in NFL if they are good or not and the only info is their stats?
Like for instance, we could argue if Eric Fisher is shit or not, but he made the pro bowl. What does sandbox think of Fisher?
