  1. Newgen faces have been awful the last two years and are as bad this year, The faces a few years ago were hardly photorealistic but honestly they were adequate for the job they were/are meant to be doing and every year before that they'd also been adequate. The natural progression was giving us better each year but honestly I'd be ok now with the same faces from when I first played a modern FM in about 2009. Classic case of if ain't broke, break it.
  2. Firstly, surely most people on this forum are fairly highly likely to buy the next FM anyway? If not this one, then probably one of the next two. Secondly, the point in the quote is more about selling more in the country in question rather than people everywhere claiming that certain leagues would make them more likely to buy.
  3. The editor seems to be having trouble with multi-stage competitions this year. I can't get any to work either. The only workaround I know of is to get everything to do with your playoffs set in the basic editor and then change as little as possible of the playoff stage when you convert to advanced. Even then it doesn't always work. You could try reporting it on the bugs forum but don't expect them to come up with a fix any time soon: SI doesn't care as much about the editor as they do about the main game (for totally understandable reasons) so it will probably be fixed but not until next year's game.
  4. That's what would be needed for SI to do it perfectly. The operative words there being SI and perfectly. I wouldn't need it to be perfect, personally. All it would really need is a bit of improvement work to the editor, which is necessary anyway because the editor is currently buggy as hell, and the work on pronouns mentioned above. Now that's not nothing; it's still a lot of work. But compared to the above litany it's not a massive amount and if the pronouns can be made to work properly and the editor can set up leagues that are only for certain types of players (e.g. females) then the people currently making women's football databases in the editor would be able to do it about ten times better. Would it be up to the standard that SI would want it to be if they were releasing it? No. Would it have all the problems regarding attributes and the ME and animations that you mentioned above? Yes, but those who download those women on FM databases now have those problems already and it doesn't stop them, does it?
  5. Obviously, but there's a ceiling to how much time/effort they can spend on any one feature. Would the proposed feature hit that ceiling? I don't know. But that doesn't mean that saying the time/effort required is a factor "isn't a great argument."
  6. no. This is about interaction with players on your team who are unhappy at you accepting a bid for a player who wanted to speak to the bidding club.
  7. Licensing would probably keep this feature out of the game as a default but an option to set up alternative systems in the editor and give them a percentage chance of being adopted over a given period would make some sense to me. It could include things other than format changes too, such as adding or removing b-teams, changes to transfer rules, league expansion (thinking about the MLS, for example), Old Firm teams joining the English leagues etc.
  8. I'm assuming that the coding and database changes to allow this would be too time-consuming when balanced against the number of people likely to use the feature because otherwise it seems like something that would have been done a few years ago. I can't see any other reason that SI would be against it in principle. It's probably already on that master list of feature ideas that they have, but it'll be like number 120,000 on the list; once everything else is perfect, then they'll look into it.
  9. My thanks may have been premature... I'm not seeing how the effect of choosing a host stadium is achieved. The stadium for the finals of each competition is set to "neutral." It can't be that simple? I'm hoping to get news items in-game regards bidding/selection of hosts. If it is as simple as setting "neutral" (or it's something I can't achieve because it's hard coded or you just don't know) then fair enough but you could have said that and saved me the job of trawling through the files you linked.
  10. yes. This site's search function rarely presents me with useful results. I wouldn't have posted if I hadn't searched.
  11. (I hope these count as simple questions) I'm about to start rebuilding the football world - including continental and international competitions - how do I make competitions such as the World Cup and the Champions League choose their host nations/stadiums in the same way as irl? Also, how do I make it so that host nations who qualify automatically for international competitions don't have to play in the qualifying competitions? (or, if it's possible, how could I have them play in qualifying anyway but make sure that the game knows not to qualify them twice and who to qualify instead?) I'm fairly experienced with advanced editing but I've not done much with continental rules and I've never worked with international competitions at all before. I'd appreciate any guidance and if someone knows of a file I could download where such settings have been used I'd be grateful for a link - I've always learned editor stuff best by looking through files that others have created; it gives me a starting point for my own trial and error.
