  1. How would you feel about an 'HD' version of FM, using Unreal Engine or something similar? To be clear, the normal game would remain as normal for us using older PC's, this would be an additional 'premium' option aimed at the types who pay $70 for the newest FIFA and play it on high spec gaming PCs. Now that FM is on the Epic Store they wouldn't have to pay a licensing fee to use Unreal Engine 5, which looks amazing, arguably better than FIFA's Frostbite engine. The counter point is to concentrate all efforts on continuing to develop SI's own graphics engine which is great. But I think it'
  2. I agree, you can do this for loans and for national team callups so it's already a feature in game, it should be added to the reserve and youth squads.
  3. When you attend another teams match in FM as a spectator you can get a good idea of players abilities by watching them, but this isn't reflected in the game with increased knowledge of the players abilities. I think depending on your Managers Stats you should get a narrowed down ability range such as you'd see from preliminary Scouting Reports on players, eg Pace 11-15, or if your judgement stats are really low maybe 9-16 or something. I don't know if this is something a real life manager may do though.
  4. The only thing I can do is try to pause the game when the dugout shows up, or quickly hover over it when it shows up which stops it disappearing. As soon as you click something it will disappear though
  5. I have a much neglected YT channel, and I've been thinking for a while I'd like to create a custom database in FM21 with a full league of fictional teams. I want to run it in 'real time' and have highlights of games on a weekly basis, as well as maybe doing some commentary, discussing the latest transfers etc. There are no real managers, it will all be simulated by FM and I will only make editor changes if necessary to keep it running. First of all would you be interested in this project to any degree? If so, what would you like to see, I was thinking of making a fictional South American
  6. I believe African leagues should take priority over adding lower leagues. I'd love to see them all of course, but of all the Continents Africa has the least leagues, and it is arguably bigger in World football than CONCACAF.
  7. I assume this mod will remove the teams from their original leagues https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2461984710
  8. Wow! That is amazing! I didn't expect to see the exact thing I mentioned!
  9. If you've ever done a career save building up a small club to domestic or European champions etc, please show me your teams new stadiums if you can take screenshots. I'd be really interested to see like a Blyth Spartans 70k seater stadium.
  10. This topic will be controversial, so it requires some discussion, maybe a poll, to gauge what people think. But how would you feel about including some of the less pleasant aspects of football? This example isn't relevant because you don't see players in enough detail, but when you watch real games you'll see at least a couple of instances of players spitting on the ground. Understandably this isn't the kind of thing they use in FIFA preset cutscenes however. Other things like purposeful diving are obviously excluded. How would you feel about an option to allow this kind of stuff (maybe limite
  11. Ghana, my favorite AFCON nation. I just did one in FM17, now I'm going to do one in FM21. But I'll look for a few custom African leagues first
  12. Sorry I know you didn't put this as a discussion, but this has come up before and the answer was in regards to copyright issues. Can I ask to clarify what that means? Using that example, Paul Scholes is already in the game, he can be bought and sold, he has a likeness, and as an NPC he can even become a manager in the game. Why is it different to use him as a manager? Sorry I just don't know much about copyright.
  13. I kind of disagree with this. I think the chances are the best potential player of all time was born before football was codified, maybe they never even played the game, but their genetics and mentality were such that if they had played, they would be the best of all time. The most realistic way would be what OP suggested, but getting the balance right is very difficult.
  14. I concur with all of the above, and I'd like to add that at youth level international experience could have an even greater impact on their career than club football. So it would be really interesting as an international manager how your training and tactics, although limited, could shape a new generation of players. I agree. I've been doing an African Cup of nations save, but it feels more like the premier league. I'm not sure how easy it would be to capture the feeling of that competition, or the Copa America etc, but it would be great if they could have things like banners, flares,
  15. I'm not sure about the copyright issues involved, but I'd love if SI were able to create a mod/ addon for Cities: Skylines where you can export your teams stadium into Cities: Skylines. This would be especially great if for example you've done a long term career with a small town club and they've built a 70k seater stadium. There is an official addon for C:S called 'matchday' so I think it's very possible Colossal Order (creators of C:S) would collaborate on a mod or allow SI to sell an addon through Steam or the Epic store etc.
