  1. It's worked this morning, I'm guessing you have to be logged in to download it, I don't think I was last night. Thanks!
  2. Does anybody have a link to the latest version of this database, the one I was using won't generate the fixtures for season 3 and the one at the start of this thread can't be downloaded.
  3. I started making the same database for FM17! A nice touch is to set the teams favoured formations to 2-3-5 or 1-4-5. It's also nice that you can get the kits pretty much spot on, Derby was the hardest to get right.
  4. New update com patible with FM 17.3 update. http://www.mediafire.com/file/0uc87tanneaj22c/%4040yardheaders_South_Africa_Regional_Leagues_17.3_804DBAED-D93D-4864-B5CE-737C476A06CB.fmf
  5. Here's an update to the above file with corrected ABC Motsepe League logs, improved finances, more real stadiums, corrected team names and colours and artificial and gravel pitches added! http://www.mediafire.com/file/im45hroho5bvp9x/%4040yardheader's_NEW_South_African_Regional_Leagues_62C4BD33-4A4D-4513-B02B-0359938EF91F.fmf
  6. ABC Motsepe and 27 SAB Regional Leagues added. NedBank Cup expanded to include SAB League teams plus nine regional cups added. The research on this one was a nightmare as very little information is available online, hopefully I'll add more SAB Leagues and a realistic play-off format from Level 4 on the next update. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=850567025
  7. The research for this took ages as it's unbelievably difficult to find information on the SAB Regional Leagues. In the end I've had to settle for 27 regional leagues out of 63 and scrap the SAB League play offs because I couldn't get them to work but what you do get is 432 new teams, 9 new regional cup competitions and an extended Nedbank Cup to include SAB League clubs. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=850567025.
  8. I still can't get it to work! I've published what I've got so far to the Steam Workshop and everything works except the play off sorting. All I need to achieve is for teams from the SAB Regional Leagues Gauteng Region to compete against each other for promotion to the ABC Motsepe League Gauteng Region and so on. If anybody more experienced with the editor could have a look and tell me what's wrong I would be eternally grateful! It's on Steam as 40yardheader's South Africa Regional Leagues. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=850438260
  9. Thanks, I'll have a look at that later. Do I need to set geographical limits for each individual league?
  10. I've finished a South Africa Level 4 database I've been working on but when I tested it level 4 teams are being drawn against teams from other provinces in the play offs. 27 league winners contest 9 play off places but it's not three per Province, it's uneven. I've set the division teams are promoted to for each level 4 league but this doesn't seem to affect who they play in the play offs. I've also set the individual regions as parent divisions, is this wrong as well?
  11. I've downloaded that patch from Steam and played it. I've got four of the five remaining Gauteng Regional Leagues done. I just need Johannesburg team lists then I'll publish with Gauteng Province working to Level 4 then add other Provinces later. You're dead right, the best way to get the information is by searching on Facebook.
  12. Ive found teams for four out of the six SAB Gauteng province leagues and started creating missing teams. I just need Johannesburg and Medsweding to get that region working. I may add others as I go along but I think I'd need to create around 900 teams! Even FMs South Africa researcher couldn't give me league tables for the SAB League.
  13. Thanks! Hopefully this works as I think I'll have around 200 teams to create if I want to achieve what I've set out to do.
  14. I'm trying to make South Africa regional leagues. If I search for all teams in South Africa it doesn't always find teams which I can find if I search them just by name. Is there a way of making sure all teams are displayed when searching by nation?
  15. I've worked out the problem and have started working on a more realistic regional structure at Level 4. Gauteng 3rd divisions don't exist, the teams I was trying to put into Level 5 are Level 4 teams and the level 4 leagues don't have any teams in them which is why they wouldn't work. Researching what teams are in each of the 52 regional leagues is very bloody difficult!
