[FM19] NASL legends 1978 (updated)


Recommended Posts

placeholder-square-nasl-50th.jpg.3a259ba38495562f8faf2bb03b777b9c.jpg

Travel back to 1978 with Pelé, Cruyff, George Best, Beckenbauer, Eusébio, Gerd Muller, Bobby Moore, Hugo Sánchez, and more.

Classic NASL rules include 6 points for a win, tied games going to OT & penalties (sadly not from 35 yards), and "best 2 out of 3" playoffs.

Is there any plan to also release a NASL database without the legend players?

Never mind that... :P what about just release the legend players without the league?

I recently got a new computer and I loaded this file with the logos and kits but when I get to the team selection the kits appear but only the Toronto logo appears. The weird thing is everything worked on the the old computer (which I can't use anymore). I don't know exactly what is going on.

That is an odd one. Have you gone into the settings and ticked the box for "reload skin on confirm" or whatever it is? Apologies for the slow updates, I'm finally back on the west coast and can get back to work on some additions. In the meantime, any feedback? High scoring games should be the norm from what I could tell during testing (and watching 70s NASL highlights on youtube)

Yeah, even when the confirm button is available nothing happens

This has been updated, each of the 9 teams has a full 24+ man roster with staff, awards, and a few dozen more faces in the pack.

Another quirk of the old NASL seasons is the need for 2 North Americans on the field (increasing after 2 years) and 1 more on the 3-man bench.

Here are some research acknowledgements:

Lots of details and stats from the invaluable NASL Jerseys; this Rowdies Appreciation Blog; the Kenn.com blog; NASLhistory; Fun While it Lasted; NASL; Stats Crew; the American Soccer History Archives; and Tim Hanley's recollections at the RSSSF.

Inspiration from Ian Plenderleith's book Rock 'n' Roll Soccer; Gavin Newsham's Once in a Lifetime (and the movie); Adrian Webster; David Tossell; Andrew Horne; and Colin Jose.

Here are some highlights on Youtube which has a lot of old games in full:

This was cleaned up earlier in the year, you only get 3 out of 3 subs, which is true-to-life but hilariously difficult to plan for and execute. I'm playing with Detroit and riding home advantage to a roughly .500 record, the draws go to short overtime and penalties which is different

Might get bored enough over the holidays to add another team or some kind of "rest of world" thing so you could sign 1978-age Maradona, Kevin Keegan etc, as if NASL kept going strong and adding stars.
