I've been filling my time this last week by starting a Marvel Scenario from scratch. It's a start but it is seemingly playable... I think... Y'all know by now that I don't test these things.
 

Current Specs
Promotions: 1 (MCU)
Workers: 106 (57 signed to MCU)
Staff: 22 (24 random Owners and a few others will be generated)
Belts: 0
Events: 0
Television: 0
Alter Egos: All "real identities" have been added (Based on Earth-616)
Relationships: Several done. Mostly only if I'd expect a reaction from on of them leaving the company. (i.e Thor won't be upset of Hela got fired)

Contracts: The Original Avengers have unsackable contracts where as other heroes with their own Movies in the MCU have written (along with their foes)
                         The rest are only on open contracts.
Wages: I've set the wages at (.75xOVR)1000. e.g. If the worker has 84OVR they'll be paid $61,000 etc
Stats: are based on Marvel's Power Grids. The stats may seem a bit off here and there but these are all in comparison to each others.
Images: 0

Link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/8csve3eqxlps8fr/ewr_marvelu_010.zip/file

Notes: I slowly started with gimmicks but decided to curb it for the time being until I decide how I want to pursue it. Comic Book Hero/Villain makes most sense to me but then I'm lazy.

If there is anyone/anything you would like added (Especially staff wise) please let me know. This is a work in  progress. This initial file will be the base so updates will be less frequent but hopefully not to infrequent. I want to focus on getting what I have done already up to scratch but will keep notes on future additions

Cheers.

Hey man, 

Just browsing the threads and this caught my attention. I downloaded the file but it didn't work. All of the files for the DATA we're separated so I don't think the game recognized it? 

In any case, based off your description here regarding staff, why not get the writers/illustrators of either the movies and/or comics for personnel. Also, bring in Bruce Campbell's Ring Announcer and add Bonesaw McGraw as a wrestler maybe? (If they're in there already, disregard)

Are you strictly going for the MCU/actors presence or is it kind of open ended?

I checked the download file and everything is as it should be. Did you just drag and drop the DATA folder into your EWR folder?

I'm not basing it directly off of the movies. I have MCU in there just so the initial start up game is a group of people that everyone would be somewhat knowledgeable of the roster.
If anything, the staff would be the more behind the scenes types i.e STan Lee, Jack Kirby etc as writers but I also have the likes of Happy Hogan and Pepper Potts as staff members.

The hardest part with adding workers in the future is who to determine to put in and who has no use of being in there. I have a bulk of the main players already just unsure as where to go from here.

Thanks for the input though. Everything is appreciated.

Well, I couldn't play it because I have TEW 🤣Whoops. I didn't pay attention to the tag. I was wondering why there were multiple files haha. Ah, man, that's a bummer. 

But, since this is pretty cool and your trying to pull it together, I don't mind continuing on with suggestions and the like! 

I haven't played EWR in a long while so I forget what the setup/layout for all characters and their roles in the game.

With Stan Lee & Jack Kirby having passed, are you keeping them alive in this universe or trying to keep it "current"? If there are Year End Awards, maybe you can make awards after them?

To fill out the writers, here are some names you can run with (I tried to stray away from DC writers, but some of these guys bounce between both so I gave them consideration just to pad it out)

-Jim Starlin (The Infinity Gauntlet)

-Jonathan Hickman (The Fantastic Four)

-John Bryne (Days of Future Past, Dark Phoenix)

-Mark Waid (Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, S.H.I.E.L.D.)

-Ed Brubaker (Uncanny: X-Men, Daredevil, Secret Avengers)

-Fabian Nicieza (Thunderbolts, Daredevil)

- Christopher Lost & Craig Kyle (X-23)

-Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Universe/Ultimate Spider-Man)

-Louise Simonsen (X-Factor, New Mutants)

- Brian K. Vaughn (Runaways)

-Peter David (The Incredible Hulk)

-Chris Claremont (X-Men)

- Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk)

- Jason Aaron (Thor/Avengers)

- Donny Cates (Venom)

-Ta-Nehisi Coates (Captain America/Black Panther)

-Mariko Tamaki (X-23)

-Ryan Spencer & Nick Ottley (Amazing Spider-Man)

-Phil Brooks 😏 (Drax the Destroyer)

The titles in the parentheses are the comics they have written or were define by. Also, there is a power ranking but I forgot to do that as I was writing, I'd be happy to help flesh them out if you choose to go this direction. All of these writers are Marvel writers, for the most part.

Also, I'd give Pepper Potts and Happy Hogan a manager or personality role? Could I suggest maybe diving into SHIELD agents as backstage personnel? I assume Nick Fury is an active character/authority figure?

I hope this finds you well and I'd be happy to continue to help along the way if you'd like.

hey love this concept❤️, had a look at it and looks cool but staff options defo need fleshing out, could maybe use some of megacity1ideas for this and/or look into some of the other characters used within the MCU IE armin zola, Baron Zemo, peggy Carter Betty/Thaddeus Ross. I came up with a basic banner and logo not brill but do seem to fit the bill added them for your perusing if I can help in any way let me know as really like the look of this and would love to help

Staff is definitely going to be the biggest grind, I think. When I make up these scenarios, I tend to do a GFX pack to go with it usually made to my own tastes. Feel free to grab them and try them out.

Appreciate both your and @MegaCity1 advice. It will definitely come in handy to get assistance etc in the future.

I've pretty much gone back to my default background anyway. There was too much going on in the other one. If you can get the others uploaded, I'll throw them on for me to have a look at.

All good. I’ll check it out when I get home. I’m pretty picky with how my games look but I’m not everyone so if it fits the masses, it’s all good. It’s. It like people can’t chop and change to their tastes anyway 👌

Downloaded, installed, trialed. I'll be completely honest. I'm not a fan. I can see what you were looking at doing so I'll go through what I saw as I saw it.

Title Screen: the EWR logo doesn't work with the central image. The styles are very different. If anything, I'd possibly remake the EWR logo in a MARVEL style and work the main info in upon that in some way.
Background: Basic. I like basic. Not sure if the whole black theme works overly well within the "scenario" but I do like basic. The logos in the top left and top right of the image don't work for me because while in game, they're obstructed by the buttons/company logo. I'm not sure if it's everyone's tastes but I like my things looking clean. I won;t be going forward with my current one because, like I stated earlier, there's too much going on.
Loading Screen: Stretches out as the image is not set to the correct dimensions. The characters in the image are correct except I'm not basing it on the MCU potrayals. for example. The worker pic for Captain America won't be Chris Evans playing Captain America, instead it will be using the avatars from here --> https://www.marvel.com/characters
Internet Banners: I also have a tendency to make these fit in with the background, except this time round I think I'll be making them look more like the buttons on the main page, which is why the MARVEL banner has that border. I have made up the Daily Bugle so far.
c99588443eb1eaa59316d8221e250650.jpg
But was kind of stuck on what else to do after that. May do a recreation of the WHIH logo though.

Hopefully, this doesn't come across like I don't appreciate the help, because I do. I just have a particular way of doing this with the GFX I use in game (In saying that, I don't actually play the game).
If you want to get an idea of the things I do, I started doing mor pack things in the last few pages of this thread

Yeah. The main reason for going with comic avatars is simply because of it having a larger database. I’m not going to find character portrayals for all workers otherwise. 

Play around with a few things in the graphics side. Find what you like and build up from there.

Face pack wise I have this ATM its not brilliant but I'm only using paint and paint 3D also used drawn and live action think the drawn ones are far superior but working away slowly at getting the others also there are some in there that aren't on the database thought it would help with the beefing up

changed the title screen and simplified the background and attempted to buttonize the banners but struggling due to limited programs

take a look and see what u think and hit me up look forward to any advice u can give me

That's the site used to get to where I am with the data. I really need to add more to it. Might try do a staff run through the week if motivation works for me.

How's progress looking? I'd love a copy to work on it myself. Anything you need in particular at the moment? I've been interested in a scenario like this for years.

I’m so shit at this 😂😂

I’ve done nothing. Sorry. I keep getting distracted by nothings really. 
nit sure where I’m at, been a while since I’ve looked at it. I need to get into it because, though it’s not difficult, it’s just repetitive. I’ll let you know if I’m need help in areas . Thanks

      This is my last scenario. I couldn't decide between 2005 and 2007, so 2006 made a good compromise.
      The scenario contains:
      - 13 promotions - WWE, TNA, ROH, AAA, CMLL, CZW, PWG, CHIKARA, SHIMMER, HWA, IWA-MS, FIP and JAPW.
      - 1105 workers. Stats are probably better, than what they were in my 2001 scenario. Nevertheless, don't expect total miracles. The WWE developmental workers have their stats slightly nerfed, so the game can do its magic on them.
      - 344 staff. All real people (yes, even the doctors), except for the owners of PWG, CHIKARA, SHIMMER, IWA-MS and CZW (because their real-life counterparts needed to be workers).
      - Pictures for all wrestlers and staff, which are, in 98% of the case, cut by me.
      - Logos for all promotions, real, fake and then some. Some made by me, most made by other people.
      - Start screen, made by me.
      - Banners for all promotions and websites, some made by me, some made by TheWho87.
      The fake TV channels are as follows:
      CindySat - Syndication.
      KCAL-TV & WLNY-TV - Local channels for the west and east coast.
      Pollas En Vinagre - 100% risk.
      MOCKBA-24/7 - Syndication with lower requirements.
      I made Excel spreadsheets for WWE, TNA and ROH in which you can keep your detailed title history, event records and other good stuff. I added a folder with some additional belt banners, in case you want to create/revive some titles.
      This scenario is based in part on Breaking Barriers #6 by Mr. X (the current update at the time) and my 2001 scenario.
      ---
      IMPORTANT!!! ->
      - Before starting a save, set your computer's clock to December 2005.
      - If you want to play on a difficulty higher than easy, start your game on easy, then raise it manually to whatever you wish.

      2001...
      Perhaps the most significant year for wrestling, that we experienced in our lifetimes.
      ...
      The really fun thing about this scenario, is the amount of opportunities it gives you.
      The game starts on WrestleMania day, April 1st, 2001 (so you can book WrestleMania, however you want). So set your date for March 2001.
      Not a fan of WWF? If you want to rebuild WCW, you have no problem. Fusient president Brian Bedol owns WCW in-game, and he and Bischoff even put some money in it.
      Want to do The Invasion properly? Just delete WCW and sign whoever you want.
      You can't be bothered with that global promotion shit? Pick your favorite indy and try to survive.
      Or better than that, why don't you create your own promotion, in the times when creating a wrestling promotion was the coolest fad?
      ...
      THE SCENARIO CONTAINS:
      - 8 promotions - WWF, WCW, XPW, CZW, NWA Wildside, UPW, IWA Mid South and JAPW.
      - 675 workers. Stats are mostly accurate for the better known workers. The indy workers, who became big stars in the future, are (mostly) blessed with their "peak form" (I think it helps the flow of the game). The stats for the "indy scum" are hit and miss. There might be a couple of weird ones, or occasional zeroes, here or there, left from previous versions of the scenario. Sorry about that. I tried my best to fix them. Worker ages are absolutely correct, apart for one mistake. I accidentally made someone 5-6 years older, but then forgot who it was.
      - 279 staff. The medical staff is fake, except for the really well known ones (Andrews, Maroon, etc.). You are the fucking man, if you recognize the fake doctors, btw.
      - Pictures for all wrestlers and staff, which are, in 95% of the case, cut by me. Some workers have more than one picture, to accommodate possible gimmick changes you might concoct (for example Kane with no mask, Christian with short hair, etc.).
      - Two logo packs, for the real promotions and the fantasy ones, which could be created by the game. I didn't create either of them, apart for a few logos, here and there. Also included, are logos for WWE (because, someday, you might just get the itch to get the f out) and ECW, TNA, ROH, PWG and many others, if you feel naughty enough to create them.
      - A new, beautiful start screen, made by me.
      - All banners (except the XPW one) are made (again by me), from the feds' real actual websites, as they were at the time (via the Wayback Machine).
      - I don't like people being workers and owners at the same time, so I went to a stock photo site and picked fictitious wives for Zandig and Ian Rotten, so their hard businesses, could be ran with a soft woman's touch.
      - The fake TV channels are as follows:
      CindyView - First-run syndication.
      KCAL-TV & WLNY-TV - The local channels for the west and east coast, respectivelly.
      Pollas En Vinagre - Illegal Mexican channel, ran by the cartels. 100% risk. They can show your Buck Naked matches and snuff films, no problemo.
      MOCKBA-24/7 (MOSKVA-24/7) - A strange Russian satellite channel, that somehow broadcasts to the entire world. Basically syndication, but with much lower requirements.
      ...
      I made Excel spreadsheets for WWF, WCW, NWA and XPW in which you can keep your detailed title history, events records and other good stuff.
      ...
      TIP - If you want to play on a difficulty other than easy:
      START YOUR GAME ON EASY, AND THEN MANUALLY RAISE YOUR DIFFICULTY TO WHATEVER YOU WANT, TO PRESERVE THE PROPER OWNER ALIGNMENTS.
      ...
      This scenario is based in part on The Rated-R Superstar's V4 2001 scenario...
      ...Who based it on Anthony's scenario...
      ...Who based it on RaveX's scenario...
      ...Who based it on the original EWR data.

      After playing EWR for nearly 15 years, I finally decided to bite the bullet and make a proper scenario for public consumption.
      And here it is - 1987!
      A fascinating year.
      WWF's popularity is about to explode. The territorries are still kicking about, and still trying to mount a serious challenge against Vince. The Four Horsemen kick all kinds of ass. Dave Meltzer still writes the Observer on a shitty typewriter. EVERYONE IS ON THE GAS...
      Mind you, I wasn't even born in 1987, so it took a LONG, LONG time to make this. I spent many hours researching the period and did my best to make the scenario as accurate as possible. Also, I did the whole thing FROM SCRATCH.
      It contains:
      - 10 promotions (WWF, Mid-Atlantic (JCP), AWA, Mid-South (UWF), WCCW, Memphis (CWA), Florida (CWF), Central States, Portland (PNW) and Stampede).
      - 503 workers.
      - 175 staff. (Mix between real and fake people, with most of the agents, trainers and writers to be generated by the game itself. Absolutely no fake owners whatsoever.)
      - Era-appropriate pictures for ALL workers and 99% of real staff.
      - A new UNKNOWN picture for the regens, and a female variant for it (Unknown_F.jpg).
      - New pictures for Pinky and The Brain.
      - Logos and banners for all promotions in the game.
      - New banners for all in-game websites (which, as the internet didn't exist back then, are now replaced by magazines and newsletters).
      Notes:
      - BACKUP EVERYTHING IN YOUR EWR FOLDER, BEFORE EXTRACTING!!! YOU DON'T WANT TO OVERWRITE YOUR PRECIOUS DATA AND PICS, DO YOU?!
      - Set your PC's date to December, 1986.
      - There are some workers in this scenario (about 10 or so), like Steve Austin and Kevin Nash, for example, that hadn't made their debut until 1988 or even 1989. I decided to include them, because honestly, could you even imagine wrestling, if they didn't exist? Also, I wanted a minimum of 500 real workers, so the game wouldn't have to generate regens at the start.
      - I tried making all worker stats as accurate, as I could. However, there are some workers, which I never even had watched. So, their stats are based on educated guesses and general reputation.
      - Sponsors give much less money. That is, because I want to you to avoid the potential 150 million ceiling, which you inevitably hit after a few financially successful years. I would also strongly advise you to drastically lower your ticket prices, if you're playing on lower difficulties. You should also regularly give money to charity.
      - All owners have the proper wrong alignments, so the owner alignment bug actually fixes them, instead of fucking them up even further, when a new game is started.
      - The thing that always brings my piss to a boil is generic television stations having generic names. For realism's sake I gave them names more similar to what a real TV channel would have. Here they are (and what they mean):
      KGTN - ("K" Generic Television Network) - A local U.S. TV channel based west of the Mississippi River,
      WGTN - ("W" Generic Television Network) - A local U.S. TV channel based east of the Mississippi River,
      XGTN - ("X" Generic Television Network) - A local Mexican TV channel,
      CGTN - ("C" Generic Television Netrork) - A local Canadian TV channel,
      CND - ("Cindy") - Syndication, obviously.
      Everything in the graphics pack is made by me, with the exception of the background. I don't know who made it, but I've been using it for about 8 years or so, and it's the best.
      In the end, I beg you, PLEASE TRY IT, it would mean the world to me!
