  1. Had made all available subs, but used the quick option bar to switch to another saved tactic and for the remainder of the match (last 15mins or so) the quick options bar was greyed out and couldn't be clicked.
  2. The main reason at the time of creating the tactic was that I still had quite limited players, so wanted to keep it as simple as possible, alongside really liking the movement I was seeing from the role with the added PIs and I think the CF(S) has dribble more as a set PI, which I'd rather let the individual player decide on. Good to hear it worked well for you. It plays some lovely stuff, which is why I can't bring myself to move away from using it!
  3. Thanks for all the kind comments chaps! This is very much just a fantasy database but I do really hate our current league setup. It's boring to play on FM too so that's why I wanted to make this new one. I had a great save in Germany on FM17 and thought the 18 team leagues and just playing each other twice would work really well. The teams are in leagues based on their standings from the 2016/17 season
  4. Anyone planning to play on this now the season is over for something a bit different?
  5. Hi @scott_c13, sorry I've only just come on and seen your note! Have you worked out how to get it in-game? Once you've downloaded it you need to add the file to your editor data in the FM18 documents folder. When you load up the game it'll appear under Scotland if you've got it ticked to load up.
  6. Tenerife C's record is ridiculous! Incredible season all round.

    This is right up my street, love a rebrand. Will certainly be following along! Any kits or a badge at all?
  8. Prize money does go down all the levels quite sensibly I think @grade, the Scottish Cup also offers an alternative way for the clubs lower down the pyramid to earn a bit of money too.
  9. Just caught up with all of this @MarcxD, lovely progress! I spent the entirety of FM17 managing RBLeipzig, I then added a manager to RBSalzburg a few seasons in, and then towards the end of the save rebranded West Ham as RBLDN and added a manager there too. Was brilliant managing the three clubs, aiming to move players amongst them all. I also managed Tenerife on FM15! Really enjoyed catching up on your save so far.
  10. Sounds great! I really didn't fancy doing any regionalisation for mine, but the Scottish Cup remains and is all in from the 2nd round. Makes for a really fun knockout cup.
  11. Cool, sounds fun. I wanted to stay away from regionalisation, and just make it an absolute free for all in the leagues. Also wanted to use as many real, active clubs as possible to at least keep it a little bit realistic, but I do love a more fantasy structure too!
  12. There's 2 clubs that's how many teams are active in the db!
  13. Yup, it's purely teams from the database. Third Lanark, and additionally Renton, are in there as extinct teams, so they've just been resurrected. Here's how Division 15 looks teams-wise.
  14. Hello :waves: My name is FMSamo and I blog about FM. I'm also from Scotland, and ahead of FM18 launching I decided that I wanted to edit the structure of the Scottish leagues on the game to prevent me from getting ridiculously bored playing against the same teams four times a season. Just to reiterate, unlike @Morrissey's excellent effort at getting the whole official Scottish pyramid working in-game, mine is purely made up. I'm hugely passionate about Scottish football and promoting it in a good light, but I bloody hate our league structure! My edited database consists of 288 clubs within the Scottish league system, across 16 tiers. The SPL returns as the top tier, while the remaining divisions are numbered from One to Fifteen. Here's how the top three divisions look: All of the divisions are done to the best of my ability in matching up where the finished in their current leagues during the 2016/17 season. The SPL has been given a tiny reputation boost in comparison to the Scottish Premiership out of the box, and it decreases the lower down the leagues you get. As does prize money. There's now £4.8m on offer for 1st place in the SPL. Still a drop in the ocean compared to the BuLi or Premier League, but a decent enough boost for Scottish football. Don't go filling your squad with foreigners in the top two tiers though, you'll be expected to have at least six homegrown Scottish players in your matchday squad. If you do decide to play lower down the pyramid, perhaps at newly resurrected Third Lanark in the bottom tier, then make sure you do click add players to playable teams to give you a slightly easier task to start off with. Three teams get relegated in each league aside from the 16th tier, while in each league other than the SPL, 2 teams automatically go up alongside a third team via the playoffs featuring the teams from 3rd to 6th. There's no regionalisation, it's a pure all-in league system. The Scottish Cup, aside from the 1st round containing teams from lower down the pyramid, from the 2nd round is all in. It is in fact the only major cup competition too, with the League Cup and Challenge Cup being removed. There's an addition of a Supercup at the beginning of the season between the SPL and Scottish Cup winners. If there's any questions, queries or feedback at all, please do let me know! I've been playing my save on my blog with Stirling on an earlier version of the database and nothing majorly gamebreaking has happened or is jumping out at me. Hope you enjoy it! DOWNLOAD LINK
