  1. BTW another question for Seb: The national personality attribute template was removed from FM. Was this actually removed from the mechanics, or just hidden? And why was it removed? I don't think people who asked about it before ever got a proper answer
  2. After letting it run for 5 years, I realized why I decided long ago to only do 1 year for each test. Running for more than one year allows for attributes such as youth recruitment to improve or degrade, making a comparison to previous years impossible. In my test median PA seemed to decrease across the board, it's a pity I only had French leagues loaded. If I had a 'very important' nation to compare to, then I could check to see if this is a result of the game importance. According to Seb, game importance doesn't factor into newgen PA anyway, eh? What does seem pretty conclusive is tha
  3. Ok fair points, I'll do a save or two with multiple seasons and post back here when I'm done
  4. 1. I've done it in multiple database loads. About 8-10. I did three for France, one for England, and several more for Germany. 2. Yes, I've thought about this. In the case of youth facilities, yes, it might be a delayed effect. Perhaps sometime I will do a load 5 years into the future to test it. However, I doubt it will change the result, because junior coaching is also supposedly meant to simulate the invisible youth players, yet it's effect when changed is immediate - a ~40% reduction in PA when changed from '20' to '1'. Youth recruitment also reduces PA by ~25% when reduced from '20'
  5. No ill will intended Seb lad, just having a bit of fun I am serious about game importance having no effect though. I will post this in the bug forum as you instruct me to A few things about what you've said You say it's actually just youth rating, youth facilities and junior coaching that equally contribute to PA. But in my testing of each of these settings individually, youth facilities has no effect at all on PA, and junior coaching contributes more (~40%) than youth rating (~25%), while youth recruitment also has a ~25% effect, and there is another lever for PA I have been un
  6. Stand back while I rip the hinges off these assertions Three results of a standard unedited game (the median PA player is highlighted, and PA is the last figure on the right): Three results with the following edits: France game importance set to 'completely useless' and nation reputation of '1' Bordeaux, PSG, Monaco, Lyon, Marseille youth facilities all set to '1' Lyon unedited = 128-130, 124, 135-141 Lyon edited = 123, 131-134, 126-154 The average median PA of Lyon unedited = 131.6 The average median PA of Lyon edited = 133.6
