    Amazing work @UnitedJoshdom. Looks to me like FM ought to bring you on as a researcher, you've done amazing work here! 

    I've actually just recently been taken on as a researcher. Assistant researcher for a few countries in Africa.

    I've been doing some balancing and some finishing touches for teams in DR Congo. I've also started doing a couple teams from Zambia. Seems like the next natural step: Borders DR Congo, have transfers between them, about the same in quality and coefficient. I've been busy with stuff outside FM so I haven't had the time to do much but I have managed to put together a squad for one of the smaller teams.

    @UnitedJoshdom. I will take care of incorporating the player and league changes you have provided to the files I already have. If it means I have to manually go through to make sure everything is added that is fine, I had figured I would have to do that a little bit anyway. This is a perennial problem when combining different editor files. They never work quite the way you expect. My plan is to take your file and to completely add it into the two that already exist. I just have not had the time to get started on it yet. 

    I edited a few things from your leagues changes file that I downloaded from here. I have a file which undoes the team creations and  changes some general rules for the Linafoot.

    What I would recommend doing is: Create a backup of your editor data and then add my changes to the backup. If the files are merged safely then continue with editing on the backup. I also have more changes to my personal file i can set a link for you to download.

  3. A few issues with the Congo side of the DB:

    The Congolese Cup doesn't play in the first season. I'm not sure if it plays at all.

    There are 2 teams called RC Kinshasa: One of them plays in Linafoot and the other plays in the lower leagues.
    The one in the lower leagues has a higher reputation.

    Only 1st place gets Champions League football. Only 2nd gets Confederation Cup.
    IRL 1st and second get Champions League whereas 3rd and 4th get Confed.

    There should only be 2 relegation places, not 3.

    That's just stuff I can't fix myself. Stuff like stadiums and reputations I can fix myself.


    Just been checking through your editor files:
    Because you've deleted the old league and created a new league, it means that when I start a save,
    as I've made changes to the default league in my editor data, it means that the league is duplicated,
    but only your new one plays. This messes up some things with the second tier and means there are
    two tiers in Congo with equal reputation.

    I'm gonna go into my FM editor and change it back myself, to stop that from happening.

    Ah of course, that makes sense. Merging files is a possibility, but is usually not advised.

    I wish I knew more about merging. I'm assuming it would use the most recently added data if it receives 2 edits of the same player. I guess all I can do for now with those players is give over my data and have sporadic (or who else has access to the main file) edit it himself.

    I've also talked to the chief editor at SI for Africa and gotten on board with him. I'll ask him about whether you guys could work with the official researchers for those countries to get the database legitimised and see what happens from there.

    Edit: ...provided you aren't already. And they probably already know about you.

  5. I don't know how helpful this is, but if you have accurate enough information on the teams, you could send it to SI themselves.

    The head researcher for Africa is a guy called Blue Lou, and there's also Lukafanzer who contributes too.

    Also, I found the entire squad for FC Renaissance, updated to March 2020. It's on their French language team page on wikipedia. My editor data  is accurate up to September 2019 (c. the start of the game) and a couple players have left (Yannick Tusilu and Zoumana Sidibe) and the manager too. I only found accurate DOBs for 8 of the players. Also, Jeremie Basilua plays for them but he's not set to them in the DB. My last resort to find the last DOBs (trust me, it was VERY difficult to find what I found) would be to message one of the half a dozen FB pages the club has.

    Updates will continue to come.

    Edit: I only posted the update publicly to show that I could. I'll send it across privately when I got more to show.

  6. I'd like to help. I can look into squad updates for some of the teams in DR Congo that don't have any players.

    Heritier Nke moved from FC Renaissance to Simba:

    Christian Ngimbi plays for Motema Pembe:

    Moloko Ducapel is also known as Jesus Moloko (taken from Vita Club FB page)

    I've been looking for players from Renaissance FC. So far I have found one:

    Been looking into a player called Rashidi Many Asumani who used to play for Renaissance. Found his FB profile and a FB group linked to his name. It is the only piece of information on him updated to 2019. He plays for Motema Pembe too AFAIK, as he is wearing their shirt.
    His football talents page hasn't been updated since 2012 but it does contain his DOB:

    If it's best I can edit these players (and others) in the database and link the changes on here so you can use them.

    I also have extra data on players from Nigeria and Sudan. More to come.

    Edit: I have a personal DB where I've edited players from Vietnam and Kuwait. If anyone is doing one of these for asia, I'll be happy to help.
