  1. This is going to be a very self-indulgent request, but here goes anyway. The 'use fake players' option, as you may know, simply overwrites each real player with a new regen name, different DOB, and occasionally a new nationality. I never really saw the point of it but I do find it useful to obscure who each player is. What I'd like to see is another option which generates an entirely fresh, home-grown squad for every club in every league you've enabled (plus some extras, depending on what database size you use) - much like the result of clearing all the players out of Arsenal, for ex
  2. Hi, sorry to make a whole thread on this but I didn't know where else to put it. was just wondering if you could put match attendance and the referee back on the match screen? You know, when you click on a match and it takes you to the match report. It's a small thing but is it possible..... I remember it was in the old games. Cheers
  3. The game will fully flesh out a player even with no given stats so really all you need to do is lump in a bunch of blank players into a team and let the game do the rest on startup. That's actually what I want to do with this - playing with an emptied database and putting a bunch of blank players into every team to start fresh with a fully 'generated' database. Seeing as the 'use fake players' option isn't sufficient for this and simply letting the game generate players on its own will only give you players in teams whose leagues you've loaded, and even then those players are very poor. Blank
  4. Cool, will keep an eye on that.... Wish there was some way to do it via an .edt file or something
  5. Funnily enough, same here... Looks like we all had the same brainwave... (The columns I'm dealing with are First name, last name, nationality, 2nd nationality, and club)
  6. I have yeah, but playing with an emptied database will only create players for teams whose leagues have been enabled in the game.
  7. Hiya, I've been trying out an experiment whereby I delete every person from the database and start a game with only generated players. Only problem with this is it'll only generate players for teams whose leagues I've loaded. I can simply enable every default league to get a fairly decent experience, but I'd rather not add more leagues than necessary as it really hampers the performance. I wondered if there was a way to have every country have a generated pool of players at their disposal regardless of whether their league is playable or not (including countries whose leagues aren't included i
  8. This is related to the last thread I made in here which was locked since it was reviewed. I thought another way to expand the pool of available regen names would be to incorporate people from past games who have since been removed from the database (due to retiring, etc) - using their IDs or some such, taking the most recent game they were in. I'm not sure how many people this would encompass in total, but I feel any expansion of the regen name pool would be beneficial to the immersion.
  9. It's also a lot more convenient than having to add a bunch of filler players to the database to achieve the same effect.
  10. Maybe something in the pre-game editor that takes into account the reputations of clubs and the player's stats at those clubs (as well as national team caps, age, stuff like that?) and recommends a CA level that is appropriate for those statistics. This would be useful to gauge what sort of values I should be giving a player I don't know much about.
  11. This is probably something that will only interest nerds like me, but I would like an easier way to add more names to the possible pool of newgen names than by adding a bunch of new people to the database. So maybe a text file or something somewhere in a folder where you can add additional names for newgens to receive. Kind of like the old EXNAMES file that came with CM 2. This was a minor thing for me before, but in FM 19 I played a save in Australia where many of the newgens coming in often had the same surnames, which kind of ruined the immersion aspect. Being able to add a big text fi
  12. Hey, fairly recent FM fan here. Played a tiny bit of 2010 and 2015 but only really started to get into it from 2017. Unlike everyone else I tended not to start a career and manage teams (though I have been enjoying a save in Japan this year), what I prefer to do is set up a huge save on my desktop and leave it running (at the expense of my electricity bill and probably causing huge problems for the ozone layer, lol) basically all the time, stopping to save it once I get up and before I go to bed. I start the game without a manager, and just let the game roll on indefinitely. This sav
  13. I see a lot of people do it by going on holiday... I find it goes a bit quicker if you don't set up a manager at the start of the game, that way you avoid having to see all the results on the screen & the game doesn't have to generate all the news items in your inbox, etc. I have actually been doing one with claassen's mega leagues pack (with all countries' leagues enabled). Unfortunately due to how slow my computer is it takes about 2 hours to simulate a whole month. I had been leaving my PC on unattended overnight, etc. and got to around 2029 or so. Eventually it seems my computer got s
