To coincide with the introduction of Steam Workshop functionality into FM14 (http://steamcommunity.com/workshop), we’ve done a load of work on the Editor this year to make it both easier to use and more advanced.
So much has changed that rather than doing a video blog about it, the best way to tell you all about this is to simply list the new changes, so here they are:
More advanced editing options:
Advanced competition rules are now editable (which means that it’s now possible to edit existing league structures within the FM database)
You can now create competitions with Golden/Silver Goal rules
It’s possible to create an end of season Super Cup
Competition rules can be set to be applicable to certain stages only
Seeding rules can now be applied to competitions
There is now an option to keep teams from same division apart in a competition draw
Teams eliminated from one competition can now be entered into another
It’s possible to set both time and date for replays
Add competitions with an Opening and Closing format
Competition rules – relegation based on average points (Opening / Closing format)
There’s an option to name individual cup rounds
Prize money can be set for winning, losing and drawing
It’s possible to edit a club’s Top League Goalscorer record
The seating colour in each stadium can now be changed
Different coaching roles have been added
Different retirement options have been added
Wages can now be displayed as annual, monthly or weekly
Yellow and red card rules can now be set per competition (not only by nation)
A new club status ‘Always Amateur’ has been added
A ‘Third Designated Player’ option has been added to the MLS
New helpful, timesaving options:
A ‘Remove All Bans’ button has been added
A ‘Remove All Loans’ button has been added
A ‘Remove All Injuries’ button has been added
There’s now an option to ‘mass-edit’ a regional division
New search / column options:
Search for player’s contract wage
Search for player’s on loan
Search for people by nation of birth
Search for players and staff by region of birth
Search for stadium by capacity changes
Search for competition by competition level
New customisable ‘position’ and ‘best position’ columns
Oh – and tool tips that will help explain some of the options in the editor that you might not understand.
So that’s the FM editor detailed.
For FMC, you can make your own challenges using the challenge editor and, of course, share these with everyone in the Football Manager community via Steam Workshop.
And finally editor wise, we suggested earlier in the year that there will be an in-game editor available from the FM14 in-game store – I can now confirm that this is definitely happening, and we’ll do a separate post in the coming weeks to let you know exactly what you can edit using this, and the price. If you already follow me on Twitter you will have seen some of the fun you can have cheating using the in-game editor!
