How I can create a new nation in FM 2012?

I'm trying to create a new nation (fictional) in this new FM 2012 with subsequent competitions.

But to be honest I find the way to go, especially to enable any of the extinct nations to use based on my new project.

If someone is kind enough to explain step by step or else guide me to some specific post where you can find detailed information would be helpful.

I think what you're looking for is this:

- Go to the "Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/football manager 2012 editor/format/database" directory.

- Right click the nation file and select edit.

- Scroll down to the record that begins with <!-- Continent -->

- Remove the line under that heading which reads <boolean id="is_read_only" value="true"/>

That section of the file should now read like this:

<!-- Continent -->
           <record>
               <flags id="field" value="Ncti"/>
               <string id="name" value="Continent"/>
               <flags id="type" value="database_record_unique_id"/>
               <flags id="database_table_type" value="continent"/>
               <boolean id="is_client_field" value="true"/>
               <boolean id="is_optional" value="true"/>
           </record>

- Restart the editor.

Now, when you select a nation, you should be able to edit its continent. This will enable you to activate extinct countries by setting a continent for them. You can then edit them as normal to create your fictional country.

Is it possible to create a new country, for example the Paulu national team, without having to wipe over another nation? Paulu play in Oceania, is it possible to add them to the Oceanic national championship & Pacific games without removing another nation?

1. From the base working location go into the "/database ui" folder.

2. Open a file called: db record lists (XML file)

3. Scroll or use a search function to find the table type you want to change.

4. In this example we will use the 'nation table'.

5. Once you have found the line <!-- nation table --> you are at the right spot.

6. Scroll down a bit more and look for these two lines:

Code:

<boolean id="allow_add" value="false"/>
               <boolean id="allow_remove" value="false"/>

Note: These two lines basically indicate that adding new and removing old nations is NOT allowed. I would suggest not touching the allow_remove line, but I thought you should know about it and what it does.

7. Now change the 'false' statement in the allow_add line to 'true'.

8. Save the file, close it and restart your editor.

9. You are now able to add brand new nations to the game.

Thanks for that.

I'm pretty stupid when it comes to these things. Where do I find "1. From the base working location go into the "/database ui" folder"?

There is no database ui folder on my system nor a db record list?

Unknown hacker, you might be able to answer this as well.

If I manage to put another country in the game and I wish to add them to a competition (Pacific Games and Oceanic games for example if I pick a Pacific team), can I edit the preset continental rules on a competition such as the Oceanic National Cup so it can be played every two years instead of every four years?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2012 editor\data\format if your are on a Windows PC.

I've done this but when I click to add a new nation nothing happens.

When I go to File>Details>Database Changes>Nations under Failed it gives me 1.

I was able to create two new countries perfectly. Cheers for that.

I ran into problems when re-creating the Oceanic Nations Cup. I set it up with anyway and made it an annual tournament. However, after I did it, it was the only international tournament in the game. There was no World Cup, European Championships, etc.

Is there anyway of going into the code and making a tournament like the Oceanic Nations Cup playable every year or two years rather than four years?

(That should probably be a different thread)

I added two new nations and it worked. I also simmed it for 4 years and it was fine.

I didn't do what I wanted though, which was to edit the Oceanic Cup

I did add Micronesia and Paulu though.

Editing the OFC Nations Cup brings about various problems, as it's also a qualifier for the World Cup and this won't be maintained in-game. As a result, you'd need to restructure the entire World Cup qualification in order to do it.

Not worth the bother, really.

Does anybody know where this file is on a Mac rather then a PC?

Hi. Trying to add a new nation in Europe, trying to overwrite CIS, but can't add it to Europe. Have done everything on here, but when on here:

1. From the base working location go into the "/database ui" folder.

2. Open a file called: db record lists (XML file)

3. Scroll or use a search function to find the table type you want to change.

4. In this example we will use the 'nation table'.

5. Once you have found the line <!-- nation table --> you are at the right spot.

6. Scroll down a bit more and look for these two lines:

Code:

<boolean id="allow_add" value="false"/>
               <boolean id="allow_remove" value="false"/>

Note: These two lines basically indicate that adding new and removing old nations is NOT allowed. I would suggest not touching the allow_remove line, but I thought you should know about it and what it does.

7. Now change the 'false' statement in the allow_add line to 'true'.

8. Save the file, close it and restart your editor.

9. You are now able to add brand new nations to the game.

I can't seem to either change the 'false' statement to 'true' or delete it, or anything. Any ideas guys?

you need to extract comp editor.fmf with FM Resource archiver to have xml files.

Sorry, maybe I am missing something, but where do I extract it from? 

Open resource archiver, click extract archive, open Sports Interactive folder. Then Editor 2014?

I don't have FM2014 anymore, but I think it could be Football manager 2014 instead of Editor 2014. If I remember correctly, there is no comp editor.fmf for FM 2014. I was reacting to MWFC_3's message.

I don't know where is this file on a Mac. Perhaps, you could take a screenshot of your FM folders ?

Thanks

As you can see, that is both the editor folder and the FM14 folder.

OK, there could be several possibilities.

1. It could be in "data" (football manager 2014/data)

2. or it could be somewhere else in your hard disk (C ?) : you have perhaps a steam/steamapps/etc. in your C disk.

Sorry, I'm really struggling with this right now. What exactly am I looking for? You did say you thought that the wasn't a comp editor.fmf for FM14. When I open the data folder, there is just another folder, titled editor data and the just has the .xml for the changes I have already made through the editor.

Other than that there appear to be no files to extract?

I have found this : Mac : [username] > library > application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2014 > data

I feel like we're getting so close! 

This is what my data folder looks like. What am I looking for now?

OK. I'm not sure it's here. I don't know what is "versus comps".

 

It could be : Mac : [username] > library > application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2014 editor

or Mac : [username] > library > application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2014  (but not "data")

 

Could you show screenshots of these 2 possibilities ?
