Your Home Page is, by default, the same as your Manager Overview screen. The difference here is that any screen in Football Manager™ 2018 can be set as your Home Page by selecting the ‘Bookmarks’ sub-tab, which is located in the ‘World’ menu, and selecting the ‘Set this page as home page’ option.
The Steam Workshop is your one-stop shop for additional Football Manager™ content. You will be able to find customisable content in the form of competitions, logos, kits, and player pictures created by third party managers and easily integrate them into your game experience.
The Football Manager™ Editor is a powerful application that allows the manager to modify the Football Manager™ 2018 game database. As a part of the Editor, you can edit and create competitions. For help using the editor, please visit the Community Forums at http://community.sigames.com/.
The Football Manager™ In-Game Editor is purchasable through Steam and allows you to make real-time edits to your saved games. Once activated, you will notice an ‘Edit’ option on various screens and in assorted Actions Menus.
The ‘Edit’ option on the Title Bar will typically allow you to edit ‘hidden’ attributes and values, such as a player’s Current and Potential Abilities. The ‘Edit’ functionality found within the ‘Actions’ menu, however (click on ‘Start Editing’), will allow you to edit a person’s profile ‘live’, as you see it. For example, a player’s attributes and biographical details will turn into editable fields whilst editing is enabled, with the values open to alteration. Once you’re happy with the amendments, click on ‘Stop Editing’ from the same ‘Actions’ menu section.
