This thread will go into great detail about a number of spoilerific things, including player naming and hidden stats. If that kind of thing is a problem for you I suggest you turn back now.
Having just upgraded my computer quite considerably, I plan to run a test game with all the top leagues in Europe loaded to a) test my computer's performance over a long term and b) observe the effect of DLR on the game world when there's no human influence.
I'll be running the following set-up, with a large database, England 2011 start date and everything else on it's default settings.
I'm not sure how some of those extra levels slipped through, as I only intended England, Spain, Italy and Germany to have a second tier, but I doubt it will affect the experiment too much.
In terms of edits, I've fixed the Germany issue, added Nik33's data packs (just the ones that don't alter attributes or anything) and added my own lnc file to fix the names of the "big 3" in Portugal.
After an initial write-up detailing the situation in the game world, write-ups will be made at September 1st, February 1st and June 1st. I intend to go incredibly in-depth writing this up with a detailed breakdown of the situation in each Nation for every update along with a whole host of other details on the world as well. I don't know exactly what will be in every update, as I may find different things worth highlighting each and every time, but if there's anything you think you'd like to be updated on feel free to say as much.
I can't promise regular updates - probably more likely to come in fits and starts - but I will definitely do my best, and it will probably take some time to actually get going as I want to cover a lot of ground before I even holiday a day in the game.
