Add maximum foreigner rule


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Does someone know how I can add a max foreigner rule in the pre game editor? Or is their a database somewhere? I only found a database where you can use unlimited foreign players. I would like to have the opposite.

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can look at the files named foreign player rules in this thread

They are for FM20 but can easily uploaded in the editor. Check out the fixture rules for each competition which can be found under the nation.

I believe the method hasn't changed for years so search this subforum for this (or search for u21 player rule, it's the same menu, you just change the rule because it's a list with rules available).

You have to go to advanced editor and change the registration rules (andlor the match squad rules if you want weird 90s styled rotation restrictions). You can adjust the year this takes place.

I typically play this way my main saves to make them more challenging so I have edited all of Europe to slowly integrate a 5 foreigners rule (starts after season 2, changes vary between competitions). 

 

This still doesn't affect UEFA rules but most clubs will generally not have more foreigners than they're allowed to use in the league. 

An issue you will encounter is second nationalities, so you have to remove the possibility for some main nations to have this as an option, otherwise you don't do much as a lot of the based players will just take up a passport soon after. (Think Italy, England, Spain and Germany). 

 

Clubs also struggle to sell players they don't need, so unless you're willing to make big changes in the db by placing players elsewhere, don't do this change drastically, from current system to a 0 or 3 foreigners. 

Problem is, you need to this one by one for all nations. You might find issues with verifying default rules as well in some countries, but after some persistence it should work. 

 

Do not mess with the EU otherwise Italy becomes almost unplayable with the non-EU transfer quotas. Instead, check the EU rules and foreign rules on the Nations tab and adjust accordingly. For the British nations, ensure that you have all of them treating each other as non-foreign..

 

Have this for FM20, not yet for FM21 and I don't plan on doing it either as I was late to buy it and just want to play a bit till 22 is out.
