  1. Liam Lindsay's new Stoke contract hasn't been updated. It's just ported over his Barnsley deal which expires at the end of season 1 in-game. He signed a four-year deal at Stoke in the summer.
  2. Do we know if this is being looked at all? The league rules page doesn't mention anything around TV money received by the clubs. There's also an issue with sponsorship income where only half of LaLiga clubs are set to receive any money from sponsors.
  3. We're all aware of how this looks by now. I'd like to suggest some tweaks and additions be made to it to help us when deciding who to pick to play against in friendlies. I'd like to see some extra information added to this screen, maybe the country the clubs are from and the league they play in. A lot of the time my decisions on friendlies are based where the clubs are based, picking a mix of clubs from different countries that are relatively closeby. What does that monetary value relate to? Is it the money that club pays you to play them if you're playing away? Is it profit after the estimated travel costs of getting there? It'd be awesome for this to be clearer. Some kind of estimation of travel costs would be great. With some of the suggested foreign clubs on the quick lists, they're usually from further afield rather than clubs closer to home. It gives us an indication of reputation, but I'd love to see the star ratings for reputation More input from your assistant, scouting team or the board on why you should play certain clubs or go to certain countries "You've just signed Player X from a commercially lucrative country, why not play Club Y from that country for some potential future financial gain from shirt sales, exposure to new fans, increased social media followers etc" "We signed Player X from Club Y, why don't we play his old side in a friendly to strengthen the tie between the clubs and increase our reputation in that country? "Club Y is out of form, we should play against them to increase our morale" "We've scouted Player X previously and he's on our list of targets, why don't we play against Club Y for a closer look at him in a game environment?" There's probably plenty of other things that some would like to see here too.
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. Anyone planning to play on this now the season is over for something a bit different?
  7. 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.
  8. This is right up my street, love a rebrand. Will certainly be following along! Any kits or a badge at all?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. There's 2 clubs that's how many teams are active in the db!
  14. 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.
