[FM20] Media Overhaul v0.4

Recommended Posts


Adds 4,240+ real media, 1,000 real journalists, 80 bookmakers, along with their styles and personalities

 This is the largest and most realistic media pack for FM ever!

I started by combining and converting all the media files I could find, from FM17 through FM20. 
From this start, I did many, many changes:

150 More Journalists & Their Personalities
Added journalists and personalities for about 80% of all 1,000
Personalities based on employer
                     (Example: Someone from a less reputable outlet may be dishonest or ill-tempered, but someone from a very good outlet may be honest or factual)
20% Personalities based on real life written articles
                     (Example: A journalist may work for a gossip outlet, but their articles may be more tactical or more thorough and honest than the rest of their coworkers.
Or, one journalist may be very detailed and long-winded, while another may simply ask one question, and write a short article of a few sentences.)
Employees added based on outlet size
                     (Example: Bigger media outlets may have several journalists, while smaller may have only one)
20% Have Favored Clubs 
                     (These are based on their favorite clubs or clubs they regularly report on/are inside sources for)

500 More Media & Their Styles:
    Added top-club dedicated websites with their real life journalists & individual personalities
    Added local media outlets & their real life journalists & individual personalities for:

      USA, Czech Republic, Belgium, Austria, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, France, and a few minor here and there(Turkey, Guatemala, Peru, etc)
    Different mediums of media outlets have differing coverage and frequency
                     (Example: A Magazine may be monthly, A newspaper daily or bi-weekly, their online counterparts daily)

Realistic Scope Settings:
Media will cover areas they cover in real life.
                     (Examples: Other media packs may have had an EPL-only media covering all of Europe. They now only cover EPL.)
             (Or a Norwegian media may cover Norway, along with EPL, and La Liga. They cover those competitions in FM also.)

80 Local bookmakers for:
             USA, Ukraine, Turkey, England, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Norway, Greece, 
        Germany, France, Denmark, Czech, Croatia, China, Colombia, Brazil, Bosnia, & Argentina
