just wondering if its possible to associate this type of script in future FMs.

basically everyear the kit changes colour, appearence and style. You will have a choice to choose the set you would like for the team or put it to a fans vote.

It does get boring seeing the same kit 20 years on into the future...

what do you think?

I'd much rather SI put effort into improving the flawed match engine, confidence and the transfer market instead of a gimmicky idea like this.

Sounds pretty good but wouldn't happen every year and first kit wouldn't change base colour. Also i think it should just happend without your input.

well its an idea i like the idea of this facegen technology being implemented else where in the game.

Would be done by a separate team like facegen if it happened.

Not a bad idea, but not essential. Like with the facegen, it's nice - but not essential. I can understand that it does sometimes give your "sim" footballer some "character" I suppose.

I think that the "scene" will always happily produce graphical enhancements and that the SI team should concentrate on the "meat" of the game itself.

What about stadium-gen, a picture that represents your stadium and surrounding areas that develops through time, reputation, expansions and training or academy improvements. Obviously well known stadiums would look completely different and I know a lot of people wouldn't like that, but it would be good to see your stadium, training facilities and academy develop through time. Imagine the difference after taking a non-league team through to Europe, seeing a statue of yourself appear out the front, when the time comes for such glory.
I'm not suggesting a FIFA style stadium building device either just a picture that changes like face-gen.

For the time being you can use FMM to change the colour of your kit. I change my away colour every season

Why ask for more "shiny" graphics and gimmicks?

For me they are not what the Football Manager series is about. I would hope that SI don't bow to the requests for more graphical features and concentrate on what they have proven to be leaders at with the "simulation" side of their games, with great depth and detail.

I have to admit, I remember playing games like FIFA Manager (the one that had Bobby Robson on the box!), and did enjoy tinkering with building stadiums for a short while before the novelty wore off. When all's said and done though, they were a distraction from the fact that the game itself was rubbish, was far too easy to win and had no depth.

Ultimate Soccer Manager had the sort of features you mention HonkyDick - but where is that series now. It was quite a good series while it lasted, but could'nt keep up with the CM/FM series. It's actually available for download on some abandonware sites these days, so if you want a fix of organising this side of football, try a Google for it http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Id like to see it. I always think it's strange when I see Sheffield Wednesday with a shirt that still says 'PlusNet' on it when the year is 2027. I'd like to see the colour and style change, just style for home kits, and maybe fake sponsers put in there.

Like others have said, not really anything but a cosmetic change but it would be nice in game.

Id like to see it too.its a good idea IMO.if they can do it with facegen,they surely could do this one too.

While I wouldn't be opposed to such a feature, I do feel that SI should focus on fixing the main problems at the moment before turning to superfluous additions to the game.

Home kit should never change colour. I like the idea though. Be better if you could design it.

I have said about stadiumgen before which would be cool.

I like the idea, have thought it needed something similar myself, not so sure about getting to choose yourself but would be great to have the kit actually change as it would in real life.

Tbh i thought Facegen was pretty superfluous so it wouldnt exactly be anything new if FM went down that path again

It would be a nice touch, but I wouldn't want it in at the expense of something more worthwhile.

No it didn't, you obviously didn't read the whole post, the last line is only there for people like you and you still assumed. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif Is this just to further illustrate how bad you are at comprehending a simple post?

I have a copy of USM from years ago anyway. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Rather than a KitGen thing I'd rather just see a plain kit for each team. Like what's generated for teams whose kits aren't in the game, based on club colours.

We don't know what a kit will look like in future but at least we know the basic colour scheme.

a nice idea which if the other more major flaws could be sorted properly then I'd love to see this in the game but as I said there are more important priorities for now.

Hey HonkyDick!! Is there anyway u can send me that game, i can't find it and that series was awesome!! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I think it is a good idea. Facegen was one of the best ideas in FM, cos in the past I used to hate the game when it came to regens because they didn't have any personality, but now thanks to facegen, they have a personality and look just another member of the squad.

No way, I keep all the old classics even if I will never play them again. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
Do a search, most of the old games can be found as downloads these days.
