FM 21 Pregame Editor Changes


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I loaded up the new editor to start making the rosters my own, and there are a lot of changes it seems this year. So I was thinking that as people figure out what some of these new features are, that they could post it in this forum. 

 

To me this editor does not preliminarily appear to be a clone of the FM 20 pregame editor. Also if this is a dumb idea feel free to delete this post. This forum I think is the right place for something like this.

 

Edit: The new features (at least at the time when I checked) did not have their description under them when I hovered over them or tried to click them.

I was just downloaded the pregame editor and starting messing around with it. First new thing I noticed is on the player data -> general screen, with listings for peak current ability and peak potential ability (separate from current ability and potential ability). I am wondering if these have any bearing on a new game or if it is just a reference for how certain players were rated on previous versions.

Peak PA/CA &  Role ratings were the first thing i noticed. - not sure what they relate to ingame, if anything.

They've moved the training in nation/club section as well (for anyone who used xml/excel to code build etc)

Thank you mate for helping with missing records!

Any fix for kits when importing from Editor 20??

nope, had to raise that as a bug.  You'll have to manually correct them for now.  Couldnt see a fix sorry.

you can select the dropdown for  a new tactic but the button will not change text no matter what you select.

Has anyone solved what peak CA and PA actually do?  In many cases I see these matched to given stats.  For random PA, there is a fixed value below max, and then in some cases peak PA is below regular PA.

Nothing, its the highest PA they have had in previous versions it seems.

Ha, that is interesting.  I wasted a lot of time adjusting those in a test file last night.

no the only issue, i can still see at the min, is the swapping of kit colours.  

Red="xx" blue"yy" is being read as red="yy" blue="xx" when imported to 21.   Even though correct in the xml itself

Honestly, I doubt they will respond.. Editor 20 had some bugs that weren't fixed whole year, but hey, let's hope I'm wrong :D

Club tactical attributes? Not sure if this was already before but do they change anything in regards to how an AI manager sets his formation or change his formation? BTW this is also bugged it doesn't change to what you select it from the dropdown!

There's this new tab for non-players. Don't know what exactly tries to do.

I've tinkered with it and have found the following

 

basically it reads all the attributes into one area (and then adjusts it based on the CA) - the advantage is that it's in one centralised location (you can freely edit value), rather than scrolling through each section individually

attribute - the name of the attribute

value - what you want the value to be

weighting - how much it contributes to CA (or the key attributes if you've set up a role)

controlled attribute - what the game will scale it to based on the current CA (you've listed it as)

difference - value minus controlled

 

it's BRILLIANT for creating staff CA accurately (and works even better with "role scores" as a below option)
not sure if it's the same with players, but plonk a staff role in and it'll change the weighting - with the role you've selected, only "youngsters" and "determination" are actually relevant (and "Mind Games" is essentially a free attribute, there's no difference between 1 and 20 for that role)
you can make the other attributes whatever you want (potentially looks like a HOYD or youth manager based on those stats)

 

edit: a similar menu exists for players too - it's awesome for creating players (and subsequently assigning a CA) - no longer just need to plonk CA200 and hope for the best, you can actually see what a lower CA (than recommended) will do to the ingame attribute values

This didnt seem to have any effect on any of the options i chose . My stadium seemed to remain the same so maybe it isn't stadium related so not sure what they do?

Maybe the conference room or the changing rooms?

Also codes for color new value is different now. I editor 21 red is first color for codes - in editor 20 blue is first color codes.

This is color code from editor 21 - as you can see  <integer id="value" value="-6"/> is -6. This means 250/255/255 RGB

What's Nationality Info?

 

In general it looks like a higher level of detail is possible. 

Nationality info is basically how they are eligible for that nation (declared for nation, born there, eligible through [grand]parents, citizen, resident but not citizen, citizen but treated as foreign [places like China will have this])

Basically creating a difference into the type of person, rather than just a random national (kinda like how people are IRL)
