  1. Hi everyone. I'm currently trying to create a comprehensive worldwide alternative database. It's quite a big project, and I am having some troubles as to how to make it work in the editor. Thus this thread, I would like to gather opinions and advices on how to make it work. The idea is to create a different environment for the game, to have a whole new playable experience. I entend to make a new worldwide "system" for football. I intend to use clubs from nearly every nations present in the game in a new structure. It's kinda like the world leagues database that have been existing for years but with a different takes. One other thing is that I want to tweak the nations ratings (espacially for regens) so that it is way way more closer between nations. I would like to keep the same kind of "ranking", but with a smaller gap between all nations. That would mean boosting (and sometimes - boosting a lot) many smaller countries so they can produce actual decent regens. I also have a few ideas on how to rework international football in a way that would synergise well with this database and create something interesting but that would be for later. Right now I would like to create a working league system, and I'm not sure about the direction I should take. My ideas would probably require multiple db files as I will have to set rules for multiple nations and I am not sure how to handle them. Now I'll try to explain the league system that I have in mind. Those leagues would include clubs from various countries, geographically distributed. They would be "franchised leagues" (think MLS) without relegations, or even lower leagues. Nearly every nation (except a few Oceanian and Carribean smallest countries) would be represented at least once, and at most with three clubs. The world would be divided in 4 regions (America, Europe, Africa, "Oceasia"), with each region having 3 (2 for America) leagues plus one "regional cup". I would also like to have a worldwide "SuperLeague" with clubs from the biggest countries with every region being somewhat equally represented, and a "worlwide open cup" including every clubs, from the SuperLeague and each regional leagues. I would also like to make it so clubs from a specific region could only use players from said region. That could be done using a "no foreigner" restriction and using the accords to make it work, I think. The SuperLeague would have no foreigner restriction, of course. To summarize, a player could only play : A - For a team within is origin region ; B - For a team playing in the SuperLeague. A Senegalese player could play in one of the three African Leagues, or in the SuperLeague. This, added with the tweaked ratings, would - I think - help with the formation and help create a interesting environment for international football. Additionnally, I would like to ensure that the regional leagues are equal in all economic matters, with the SuperLeague being the worldwide big and very rich league where the best players play. I'll try to summarize this as follow : Worldwide : SuperLeague : 24 Clubs Worldwide Open Cup : 288 Clubs Europe : Europe North : 24 Clubs Europe West : 24 Clubs Europe East : 24 Clubs European Regional Cup : 72 Clubs Africa : Africa West : 24 Clubs Africa East : 24 Clubs Africa South : 24 Clubs African Regional Cup : 72 Clubs Oceasia : Oceasia West : 24 Clubs Oceasia East : 24 Clubs Oceasia South : 24 Clubs Oceasian Regional Cup : 72 Clubs America : America North : 24 Clubs America South : 24 Clubs American Regional Cup : 48 Clubs I've already given a look at clubs I would select, and the "franchise allocation" I would give to each countries (1 or 2 spots in the regional leagues, plus a 3rd for the 24 countries featured in the SuperLeague). The selection was mostly made in regards to the city in which is club is located (capital/biggest city), their stadium and how cool I thought their identities were (name / logo) if there was multiple candidates. That's not a definitive list tho, merely me looking into it to see what would be possible. I did not want to select necessarily the biggest clubs, just the clubs that would fit the idea I had. Also, the clubs would be tweaked in their characteristics to even the field, as would the nations. All those clubs would probably take a lot of modifications. The idea is not to take the actual IRL clubs and to put them together, I just want to use already existing clubs. I considered creating all the clubs from scratch but thats just not reastically possible considering I would need 288 of them. One other thing I want to consider is the players. That would need ajustements too, espacially since all the clubs selected are not equal in terms of rosters. For exemple in the SuperLeague, I considered Real Madrid for Spain, Paris Saint-Germain for France (big stadiums, capital city) and .. Union Berlin for Germany. I thought it would be coherent to have a club in Berlin for the German spot, and Herta BSC .. well, Union Berlin felt more "Berlin" to me, I don't know. Also, something that could be done is taking Union Berlin but switching their stadiums to the Olympiastadion, since the idea is to create a "new world" using the assets already in the game. Going back to the rosters, well Real Madrid and Union Berlin do not really have equal rosters. And thats not even considering clubs from others parts of the world (FC Tokyo ?), so that would need reajusting. One idea that I want to play around is using the "fake players" and "add players to club" options at the creation of a new save, which would be a mandatory setting needed for the update to be playable. Maybe moving players in the editor to have coherent rosters for the game to generate regens with it ? Creating "blank" players ? I'm not really sure what would work the best, or if it even is possible, that would require testing. But I think having only game-generated players in the save would add to this "new world experience". Anyway, that's a lot of rambling. I did not put to much work into it yet, I just tried write down all the ideas that I have to have something coherent, to ask the opinion of editors in the community. I know my way around the editor but I am by no means an experts, and that's why I would like to read the opinion of those who are about the feasability of this and the way to do it. Thanks for reading all of this. I hope some of you will be interested in this project and that you could maybe give a little bit of help !
  2. Hi everyone. Sorry if this question has been asked before but i didn't manage to find a thread about it. Is there a way to prevent U19's players to play reserve matches ? Because every reserve's game there is 2 or 3 U19's player either on the pitch or on the bench. Problem is, i now have reserve players missing on games because the U19's are playing over them, despite having their own U19 game every week. It's getting a bit annoying. I'm managing Lille in Ligue 1, if that helps !
  3. Okay so to begin with i'm a big fan of the game, playing this for nearly ten years now and not planning to stop But : Can you fix all those moments when your players attemps a pass and it bounces off his teammate who was wandering around on the pitch giving the ball away to the opponent Sincerely, a big fan of the game (sorry for the salt tho)

  5. It could be useful to choose which matches are displayed in the "current matches" in match widget. Or at least the possibility to remove the results from the matchs we are not interested in. I lik to have this widget on when others results can have an influence on my league table places at then end of the season, but it's a bit annoying to have EVERY matches displayed.
  6. Okay so, gonna try to add more informations Have 2 files for nation leagues, Canada and USA, and one for the NACL. The one for the NACL was the problem. So i deleted it and recreated it again in the editor. The exact same problem occurs. When i start a game with only the files for Canda and USA, eveything works, but adding the NACL one creates the issue.
  7. Thanks for your answers, gonna try a few things
  8. Hi ! So, following my previous topic, eveything works perfectly fine. Almost. You can create the save, and play as long as you want on it. But if you want to reload the save, the game will crash. If you quit FM and start it again later, you want to load your save, it crashes. Everytime. I have no idea about where the problem is coming from, help would be appreciated Thanks in advance !
  9. Hello ! I'm having a bit of a trouble with a custom continental club competition for un update i am currently working on. Just so you now, there is 3 files for this update with the exact same database, because i had to create rules for two countries and a continental cup. Apport for the probleme you'll see just below, everything is working perfectly fine. When i use the two files for the nations only, everything works. So, when i create a game using the three files, this message shows up : It is saying that the competition 100000063 cannot be found in the database. Well, i'm pretty sure it is. Doas anyone have an idea about where the problem could come from ? Help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance./
  10. I use both way of saving, i save manually when i exit the game, using save and exit. My computer crash a few times (2/3) with the game open during the year but it had no impact. I never stop the computer with the game open. I shut my system using the shut down option. One last information that could be usefull, yesterday i played for a bit and everything went fine. I closed FM as i usually do, and then restarted my comptuer, and a Windows update went on. When i restarted steam, it has dowloaded an "update" for Football Manager. It was a 3GB update, but i'm still in 17.3.1. I don't know what it was for. As far as i know, it didn't change anything apart from erasing my regen hairpack and corrupting this specific save. I have 2 others save that works perfectly fine.
  11. I found a backup save that loads but its something like 6 years in the past so i won't play on it
  12. Hello I just had a windows update, and since then i can't load my current save anymore. I've tried a few things i read here (trying to restore a previous version - didnt find one, trying to go on beta mode on steam - didnt work). I've been told that SI has a tool to restore save and that we can send them, is is true ? It's a nearly 20 year save, all of them in Lifeban with tranmere, and i haven't reached Premier League yet, i'd be really sad if it is definitly lost. Thanks in advance
