No effect on game. Only used when creating lineups for "missed" turns. (fixlineup) No player in the Roster with a Fatigue *higher* than the Fatigue Cap will be used to build a new Lineup. If there are insufficient players to make a new lineup "warm bodies" will be purchased to fill lineup.
123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321 - IC order per position. (123 default)
*If adopted* will affect game and fixlineup (see above). At each substitution opportunity the game manager will use the ORD list and the IC order instructions to decide where to put ICs in for injured players. The manager will check positions in ORD list order for injured players. When the manager finds a position with an injured player, it will substitute ICs in the order specified by the IC order instructions. In the example given above, if the RKR FF and C get taken off-field then IC2 becomes RKR, IC1 becomes C and IC3 becomes FF. If that is not clear, then send email to SPARF teamcode yobbo until it becomes clear.
Every time someone is taken off the field or put back on the field, each position on the field is checked for health in a specified order. The first position that needs to be taken off the field gets ICed for first. This continues in this manner until the ICs are used up. What happens then is the simulator's problem.
You can control the order in which the positions are checked by using the ORD line. If you don't use the ORD line, the simulator will check in its default order, which I suspect is LFP, FF, RFP, LHF, CHF, RHF, LW, C RW, LHB, CHB, RHB, LBP, FB, RBP, ROV, RKM, RKR. Mel will have to confirm that about the simulator. If you use the ORD line then the positions that you specify will be dragged to the front of the line in the order given. For example "ORD RKM RKR ROV C" will change the above order to RKM, RKR, ROV, C, LFP, FF, RFP, LHF, CHF, RHF, LW, RW, LHB, CHB, RHB, LBP, FB, RBP. If you are not clear on this, then specify your entire starting team (*not* the ICs) on the ORD line and it will be unambiguous.
You can control the order in which a certain position attempts to take ICs by using the numeric (123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321) lines. The line is suggestive of the order in which the ICs will be checked for the specified positions. If you don't specify a position on a numeric line then the simulator will check IC1 first, then IC2, then IC3 (as if you put the position on a line starting with 123). One gotcha is that if you accidentally put a position down on two different numeric lines it will take the line specified last in the file as correct, overwriting the earlier specification. The moral is, don't specify a position on two numeric lines and you won't get confused.
... end ORD RKM ROV RKR 132 RKR 312 FB
Suppose the RKR becomes injured and the RKM and FB are already injured. The simulator would start at the top of the ORD list and check the RKM... The RKM is injured and needs a sub. The RKM has not been specified on a numeric line, so it will check IC1 then IC2 then IC3. IC1 is available and is subbed into the RKMs slot. The ROV is checked and is not injured. no subbing occurs. The RKR is checked and needs a sub. The RKR is specified on a 132 line which means that the simulator will check IC1, then IC3 then IC2 in its search for subs. The simulator checks IC1, but that IC has already been subbed into the RKM slot. The simulator checks IC3, which is available and subs it into the RKR field position. The simulator then checks LFP on down to FB, all positions before the FB are healthy and do not need subs. The FB is injured. The FB appears on the numeric line 312. The simulator will check IC3 then IC2 then IC1. It checks IC3, but that IC is presently in the RKR slot. The simulator then checks IC1, but that IC is in the RKM slot, finally the simulator checks IC2... IC2 is available and is put in as FB.
