  1. Pr0's and the Sortitoutsi updates all work with this file When you amend the Premier League you also have to amend to the Championship as the playoff's link into the division, it sounds like there's been an error in the playoffs which have caused season 1 not being successfully compleated.
  2. Cheers man, just stick the 2 files in the editor data folder and you're good to go! Yeah this should be compatable with a January transfer update
  3. I had a lot of problems with the new League cup format, try checking your date range for the competition in the League Cup competition tab, feel free to use my file as a reference point
  4. Highland/Lowland League With four Highland League clubs joining League One North, the league has been cut to 16 teams with Banks O'Dee and Culter making up the numbers. Due to the cut in size there are now less mid week fixtures and the Highland league will have a winter shutdown in January to give pitches some recovery time. The Lowland League has previous East and South of Scotland champions Lothian Thistle Hutichinson Vale and Wigtown & Bladnoch join to replace Edinburgh City & East Kilbride while Newtown Steart join as the 16th team. V1.0 Features Fixes - Increased attendances for League Cup - Increased attendance for Petrofac Cup Final - Fixed issue which seen some lower league sides reach the League Cup Group Stage after losing the qualifying round - Fixed issue with Premiership sides being given prize money before the season had finished Additions - Addition of the Lowland/Highland Leagues - Addition of the Lowland & Highland League Cups - Full revamp of the Championship and League One - New fixture lists for all Leagues - Addition of winter break in the Scottish Premiership - Added 130 real staff members to lower league clubs Download
  5. Changes in the new update Scottish Championship I've had to rework the Championship as it wasn't really working in the last version, there where too few games and too many 'small teams' which impacted on attendances and finances. I was going to reverse back to a 10 team league but with the potential off 3 teams going up and 3 down, I felt that 10 was too a small a number and have reverted to 12, unfortunately this means an SPL style split to manage the number of games Within the System 1st and 2nd are automatically promoted while the teams 3rd-5th enter the promotions playoffs. At the other end of the table 12th and 11th place are relegated while the team in 10th place enters a relegation playoff. Within in test games the finances off clubs at this level are now a lot stronger. Scottish League One North & South League One retains the same structure with the North/South divide occurring at the Firth of Forth instead of the River Tay.
  6. Don't get me wrong I see your point and half agree with it! I still believe that there would be no real advantage in filling a reserve squad full journeymen but some teams will do just that! But I'd like to belive that talented young players would get the nod over fringe players but that end off the day it'll come down to the club/managers philosophy. Unfortunely the U20 leagues in Scotland have'nt been a success and the feeling here is reintroducing reserve football would decrease the transition to first team football.
  7. There would be no incentive for teams to do this as the reserve teams do not play within the main league system such as 'B' teams. I'm hoping to get the next update out for Friday evening, changes include; Fixes - Increased attendances for League Cup - Increased attendance for Petrofac Cup Final - Fixed issue which seen some lower league sides reach the League Cup Group Stage after losing the qualifying round - Fixed issue with Premiership sides being given prize money before the season had finished Additions - Addition of the Lowland/Highland Leagues - Addition of the Lowland & Highland League Cups - Full revamp of the Championship and League One - New fixture lists for all Leagues - Addition of winter break in the Scottish Premiership - Added 130 real staff members to lower league clubs
  8. This is how Scottish football currently works, clubs have a senior side and enter a side into a U20 league, the general consensus within Scottish football is that the jump from U20's to first team football is to big without reserve team football to bridge the gap. Figures within Scottish football have suggested scrapping the U20 league and reverting back to reserve football, the theory behind this is the top young players will learn more playing against more experienced players and it would stop clubs 'wasting resources' developing players who will never make it to that clubs first team just so they can field a full U20's team I may upload a split free version if I have time. I have now fixed the issue of league classification places being issued before places are mathematically confirmed. The prize money issue has been more challenging, I had set prize money to be awarded within each individual group, this way each club would receive the correct amount based on their final position, why some clubs are being given double prize money 1 game into the split is beyond me. If I set the prize money into stage 0 within the editor then all clubs receive a single payment at the end off the season. However the league splits into 4 and the editor can only split the league into 3 meaning some clubs position in the league may be different to there group, e.g. Dundee could be in the top of the relegation playoff group (9th) but have more points than 8th place, without a split in the stage 0 table, Dundee would then be given the prize money for coming 7th. it's a better way than clubs begin payed early and twice but hopefully I can get working as intended
  9. That was an accident in all honesty, in the next version it'll only be reserve teams, Realistically most clubs can't fund both a reserve and U19/20 side, there's been a lot off calls about switching back to reserve football hence the move to reserve football from U20's I've been trying to fix the premature league classifications but so far I'm no further forward with that, same with the prize money but this could be linked! All prize money rises as the game progresses, think this is down to dynamic league reputations. They playoff would now just effect which club enters Europe at an earlier round, if you got a 4th Champions League place then it would be a playoff for that, unfortunately we can only make the league work with one set of rules so can't adjust anything in the case of extra European places etc
  10. Can you check your finances tab and see if you have defo been given the prize money twice. With the league classifications for some reason they display as if the league was only for 30 games but this doesn't affect the final outcome, e.g if 2nd place where to pip you to top they would win the league and the game would recognise that, I'll need to invetugate if it effects the prize mone though! I've been concentraing on the next instalment, tier 4 which will be the Highland/Lowland league and aiming for a release before next weekend
  11. Yeah this is purely down to the ME iv'e not edited any players or premier league clubs
  12. How is everyone getting on with the database so far? I'm working on adding Lowland/Highland leagues and cups right now
  13. Beta Version 1.0 is not out, let me know what everyone likes/dislikes, along with any bugs, errors etc... http://depositfiles.com/files/oesiz9ibl
  14. League Cup Increase in Prize money in accordance with new TV deal 13 Televised games, each team recieves £40k for every televised game they appear in League 1 clubs play in a qualifying round Championship and SPL clubs seeded till the group stage Groups regionalised as best as possible New bonus point system included European participants seeded to the knockout Rounds Some Sample Groups I'll release a beta version of the database which goes as low as League 1 tonight
  15. I'll be adding Highland/Lowland League, East & South of Scotland leagues to the pyramid. I'm not sure how I'll add the Junior teams as off yet as in real life they are mostly very resistant to join the league pyramid
  16. I'll be adding the Highland/Lowland leagues before release but will need to add clubs to these divisions to make up the numbers
  17. Scottish League One North & South League One has been regionalised into North and South sections, teams will play each other 4 times giving the league 36 games. The top placed team will be automatically promoted while the two runners up will play in a 2 legged playoff with the winner facing 14th in the Championship in the Promotion Playoff Final. Each sub division has been given Independent awards while clubs originally from the Highland/Lowland league have been given corrected attendances, ticket prices and club membership schemes based on figures taken from official sources.
  18. Scottish Championship The Championship will consist off a simpler 16 team league with no further matches other than relegation and promotion playoffs. Prize money has been distributed more fairly thought-out the pyramid and this coupled with Championship clubs being guaranteed 4 League Cup matches will make up in the shortfall off revenue from losing 3 home league gates. Within the System 1st and 2nd are automatically promoted while the teams 3rd-5th enter the promotions playoffs. At the other end of the table 16th and 15th place are relegated while the team in 14th places enters a relegation playoff.
  19. Scottish Premiership My initial idea was to turn the SPL into a 16 team league where clubs play each other twice, giving us 30 games with no splits. However the more I thought about this the more I realised how unfeasible such a set up would be. There’s a lot of noise within Scottish football about the desire for a 16 team league so I’m sticking to that number, but to be a financial viable system it’ll need extra fixtures to make up for the shortfall in revenue from 8 games lost for the Premiership. I looked to the splits in Denmark and Belgium as motivation. After 30 games the league will split into 4 groups, giving every team in the league an extra 6 balanced games (3 home & 3 away), and an improvement in the current split when teams can play away than home games or vice versa. Team 1 – CL Qualification/Qualifiers Team 2 – EL Qualification/CL Qualifiers Team 3 – EL Qualifiers Team 4 – European Play-Off’s ———————————— Team 5 – European Play-Off’s Team 6 Team 7 Team 8 ———————————— Team 9 Team 10 Team 11 Team 12 – Relegation Play off Semi Final ———————————— Team 13 Team 14 – Relegation Play off Semi Final Team 15 – Automatic Relegation Team 16 – Automatic Relegation After 36 games the teams in 4th and 5th place will meet in a 2 legged playoff with the winner taking the last Europa League spot (depending on the Scottish Cup winner). The teams in 12th & 14th will also meet in a 2 legged playoff match with the loser entering the relegation playoff final. Within this structure we get a bigger league, less games against the same clubs (2 games against 12 clubs & 4 against 3 clubs) and the guarantee of no 'meaningless' games as every club will have something to play for during the splits.
  20. Alternative Scottish Pyramid As always I’ll be aiming to start a long term save in Scotland with FM16, however like most people I find the current structure rather boring. Thankfully in real life it’s looking like league reconstruction will be a reality within a year or two. My aim is to create a new more exciting but somewhat realistic new structure which looks to tackle some off the issues which I believe are effecting Scottish football, these issues are; Staleness within the leagues. Too small a top league. Too many ‘league’ clubs. Regionalisation of smaller league. The Leagues Right now the SPL is too small, the league has a 'top' and a 'bottom' with no real middle, a prime example off this is Dundee United, a few players lost and they have imploded from a team challenging for European places to a team 7 points adrift from at the foot off the table. The current size of league makes giving youth players an opportunity and long term squad building very risky for many clubs as a few bad results can drag teams into a relegation dogfight, a successful league needs 'top', 'middle' and 'bottom' clubs. This new system consists off a 16-16-10 setup with the Premiership and Championship being the two main leagues, taking care of both the "too small a top league" and "too many league clubs" problem. Below the Championship, League one is Split into regional sub Divisions (North & South) this will act as a feeder league for the Championship with regionalisation helping to keep the costs of clubs traveling down, avoiding the situation of Highland League clubs worrying about the increased costs of travelling in a national division (Brora Rangers last season). Promotion across the pyramid will be more open too with every division having at least one automatic promotion place. The Cup The Scottish cup remains unchanged however the League Cup will contain the new format while the Challenge cup will now be regionalised and take place on weekends to try and attract higher attendances, while the tournament will be ‘speed up’ with a December final. Youth The youth league has been scraped and replaced with reserve football, while I’m toying with the idea of B teams but unsure if I’ll include them.
