  1. 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.
  2. I'm sure this is likely related to all the B team issues that've been discussed so far on the thread but here goes. I'm just going into my 3rd season with Vitória SC and decided I wanted to add another human manager to take charge of my B team, which is still playing in the LigaPro 2nd tier, so I could manage their gametime properly and training etc. However, going into the pre-season friendlies, a selection of the players I've moved into the B team squad specifically for the upcoming season are showing as unavailable to play, even in friendly matches, with no other explanation why. The players are all under 23, as per the league rules with having the B team squad and it seems to have been absolutely fine up until this point with players I've moved down to the B team squad from my main teams. I'd like to stay in charge of my B team too, but it looks as though I'm not going to be able to and I've got quite a few players to unfortunately move on from the club.
  3. Just found this is actually supposed to happen as you were...
  4. Hello, I'm playing in Portugal for the first time, so forgive me if this is known or a quirk of the league. I've just finished my first season with Vitória and had the top two tiers loaded (the third tier is being added any time now). Three clubs were set to be relegated from the Primeira. They ended up being Chaves, Santa Clara and Feirense. I spotted only two clubs were set to be promoted from LigaPro, they ended up being Pacos Ferreira and Estoril. I got a news item through on new season day saying after last season's promotions and relegations, Primeira Liga has one fewer team, taking it to 18 in total. Gil Vicente have appeared from nowhere (I believe they play in the Campeonato?) to be promoted to the Primeira for 2019/20. Looking at the Campeonato, they weren't one of the three teams to be promoted to LigaPro and it appears they weren't even assigned to be in the Campeonato.
  5. @Russell Hammant do you need more info still?
  6. @Russell Hammant "Vitória" save file uploaded
  7. Sorry if this has been raised already. If I'm scheduled to play a match on a Monday, I seem to be unable to edit the match prep training module which is set to match preview to anything else. Seems to be fine on any other day, I can change it to any other training option. Let me know if you need any examples.
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. Anyone planning to play on this now the season is over for something a bit different?
  11. 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.
  12. This is right up my street, love a rebrand. Will certainly be following along! Any kits or a badge at all?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
