  1. I haven't actually tried it, but your post made me look around in the editor to figure out how Pays Basque works and it's actually fascinating. The actual nation entry for Pays Basque basically looks like any other disabled country - in particular, it has no continent. And all the cities inside it (San Sebastian, etc) have their nation set to Spain. But they have their Local Region set to Navarra or Pais Vasco, and both of those Local Regions have THEIR Nation set to Pays Basque. I mean, it MIGHT not be possible, there may be some hardcoding going on. (in particular, I'm not sure how French Basques work, because cities like Bayonne, while still creating Basque regens, have their local region set to Nouvelle-Aquitaine, which is set as part of France). But it might be worth trying to set up a similar city-region-nation setup for what you're trying to do in Sweden.
  2. MLS teams all have an "Academy" team, which doesn't work quite the same way as a U18 team - it's more like a permanent feeder club you can sign players from for free, but it has its own manager etc. You get a news message on their intake day (it's January 1st, I think?) and it tells you about that year's crop of promotions and you can decide which ones to sign much like a regular intake day, but you don't really have much control over the U18 team itself - you only control training and mentoring etc for those players you sign for the first team.

    U.S. lower level leagues

    Are you using the Real Name/Licence fixes? I'm pretty sure that they change the names of the NASL/USL/PDL competitions even though they're inactive in the base game. In my own edit, I change the names of existing competitons to use them for my customs too, and what happens is: the first time I create a save the names for my custom competitions will be the "real names" of the ones I changed, but after I load a save it'll use my names - maybe check if that's what happens for you?

    not seen this error before

    Looks like it's a problem with whatever changes you made to the squad selection/registration rules in Italy - I've seen that happen when a competition schedules matches before teams can register squads (that is, before the registration deadline date OR any warning period that you set for that deadline date in the fixture rules). But without a screenshot of the relevant fixture rules there's no way to tell what's causing it. I've seen that as a warning in the error log in previous years, but this year's editor apparently thinks it's a more important class of error now.
  5. I've been using this edit myself for every save I've done since 2016, and the only bug that's turned up was all the squad registration stuff last year - but the UEFA Revival mod had the same issue so this seems to be an SI thing. I also haven't figured out how to deal with the 2022 WC since SI finally gave up and implemented it in winter, but for the editor and holiday testing I've done I've only seen one or two group games that overlap with it and I assume the game won't award any more winter tournaments so I may just suck it up and live with it. As for other editor data - other domestic leagues like Claasen's work fine with it (indeed I use them myself). It SHOULD take the right qualifying teams if the other league designates them in the right way (that is, if it just uses a single table OR if it uses the Continental Cup Qualifiers screen in Advanced Rules for any weird qualifying gimmicks it might have). Stuff like combined league files (Benelux, Balkans, World/Euro Super Leagues) will probably cause unexpected behaviour. And you don't need any more leagues loaded than you would otherwise use.
  6. Turns out that the "only 3 new players" feature ALSO causes problems with the deregistering bug (usually the game lets you register new players at matchday even after the deadline for some reason, but with the new players limit turned on it doesn't?) so I've hotfixed to remove that feature entirely. Unfortunately you'll need to start a new save but that should be the last change I make for the foreseeable future (unless there are new bugs).
  7. Sometimes downloads from the Steam Workshop don't get moved into the proper folder (that is, the shortlists folder in your FM19 user directory) or take a while to get moved. You may need to check in the Workshop download folder (that is, <Steam Library folder>\steamapps\workshop\content\872790\<the Workshop ID for the shortlist you downloaded>).
  8. Only VAR and GLT, plus the changes I added in the public beta (since I had to use the FM18 editor to make them, they ended up in both the 18 and 19 versions) Here are the changes I made to the 18 version in the public beta: -disabled the "only 3 new players registered in January" feature for World League because it causes issues for teams dropping into the WL from the CL. -re-enabled squad registration after confirming that a) the bug causing players to deregister after loading a save is on SI's end, and b) that users can still register players for CL/WL matches after the registration deadline if the bug occurs for them, by selecting them in pre-match window. -various bugs relating to scheduling group stage games have been fixed. Hopefully for real this time. -moved the final qualifying round forward a week to reduce conflicts with September international window. -FIFA Super Cup has been added, similar to the UEFA version: a one-off neutral site match between the CL and WL winners, scheduled for the last Tuesday in August (between the last qualifying round and the September international break) -rearranged CL qualifying spots roughly in order of league reputation (this is reflected in the OP of this thread)
  9. New subforum, same old thread! I'd like to start by thanking Graaa, the mad genius behind this custom USA database from FM15. This edit includes a lot of his work on the Extended Club World Cup that was part of that file alongside the changes I made, and I only posted it because he chose not to continue that mod or update it, but left its details as fair use for others, and I thought the idea was too awesome to let it vanish - as someone who plays a lot in the Americas I really liked the option of being able to take my team onto a bigger stage than the CONCACAF Champions League could provide. But enough biography. This database edit replaces all club continental competitions and the Club World Cup with three worldwide club tournaments: the FIFA Champions League, World League, and Youth League. All domestic leagues are left untouched and will run alongside the intercontinental tournaments: fancy midweek trips to Argentina to play Boca between your league matches? I BET YOU DO. The FIFA Champions League and World League are senior-level tournaments that mostly work how you expect: Champions League has better competition and better payouts (though the difference between the two isn't as derisory as in real life), finish high enough in your domestic league or win your major domestic cup and you get a ticket (if your league of choice doesn't use a single table or has some other continental qualification shenanigans, it SHOULD work properly depending on how SI or your database modder of choice coded that specific league, but I can't be certain. There are qualifiers (the Champions League winner, World League winner, and champions of 30 specified leagues do not have to go through them, and instead get automatic group stage places), and a group stage, and a knockout stage, and Big Fancy Neutral Site Finals. There is now also goal line technology and VAR (in CL/WL group stage games and onward). The FIFA Youth League uses a similar format and replaces the Viareggio Tournament or whatever it is called for people that aren't using the Susie Real Name fixes, that pits elite U18 teams against each other - I couldn't get the editor to choose exactly the teams that qualified for the CL, the way the UEFA Youth League does, but the idea is the same. There is also a a FIFA Super Cup between the Champions League and World League winners, scheduled after qualifiers finish (since neither of those teams participate in them) but before the September international break and the start of the group stages.. Downloads: The FM19 version of this mod is available on the Steam Workshop, and also as an attachment to this post. Known Issues Squad registrations may disappear upon loading a save game - this is apparently due to an SI bug, but on a CL/WL matchday you will still be able to select and register ineligible players even though it says you can't, so this is annoying but not fatal? If you need more details, they're below. Let me know if there are any bugs or if you have any suggestions, and otherwise have fun! Qualifiers: The number of spots is fixed, unfortunately (even the advanced editor won't let me do otherwise), and laid out as follows in the FM18 version: 1 automatic CL group stage place, 3 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Spain, Germany, England, Italy, France, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Argentina, 1 automatic CL group stage place, 2 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Ukraine, Mexico, Belgium, Turkey, Czechia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Greece, USA, Austria, Croatia, Chile, Denmark, Colombia, Paraguay, Poland, Sweden, Israel, South Korea, Japan, China. 2 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Uruguay, Scotland 1 place in 4th QR, 1 place in 3rd QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 2nd QR: Romania, Belarus, Ecuador, Cyprus, Norway, Ivory Coast, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Peru, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Costa Rica, South Africa, Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Slovakia, Qatar, UAE, Moldova, Hungary, 1 place in 3rd QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 2nd QR: Honduras, Algeria, Iceland, Morocco, Australia, Canada, Bosnia, Nigeria, Ghana Every other FIFA member country ((in other words: all other countries in the DB except for defunct, disputed, or the following: Bonaire, Martinique, Reunion, St. Pierre and Miquelon, Zanzibar, Micronesia, Kiribati, French Guiana, Sint Maarten, Mayotte, Northern Mariana Islands, Guadeloupe, Saint Martin, Wallis and Futuna Islands, Tuvalu).) starts in the 1st QR, with one or two spots: Countries that are playable in the base game that start here include: 2 spots (league and cup champion): Finland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, India 1 spot (league champion only): Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore Format Details: The Champions League has four qualifying rounds, with two-legged fixtures starting in July. All CL qualifiers are seeded into these rounds depending on how high they finished and which league they qualified from or won the domestic cup in, as above. The 96 winners in the 4th qualifying round (August) go to the CL group stage along with the 32 automatic qualifiers, the losers go to the WL group stage. Each group stage features groups of 4 (so six games each). CL plays on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, WL on Thursdays, from September through December. CL: 32 groups of 4, the top 2 in each group qualify for the knockout rounds starting in February. WL: The 24 group winners and the 8 best second-place finishers qualify for the knockout rounds starting in February, along with the 32 third-place finishers from the CL. Everything goes as you'd expect from there. Prize Money (all amounts in Euros) CL Qualifying Phase: 1st round: 75k 2nd round: 150k 3rd round: 250k 4th round: 400k CL Group Stage (WL pays about half this amount) 20M for all Group Stage participants, 1.5M per victory, 750k per draw CL Knockout Rounds (WL pays about half this amount, Super Cup final pays approximately half of World League final): 7M for all knockout round participants, + 4M for reaching second knockout round + 6M for reaching QF + 10M for reaching SF + 20M for winning final or 15M for losing final
  10. I've thought of it (actually I think there was one in the initial file I based this off of) but I removed it because I thought the schedule was crowded enough already. That said, now that both those teams don't have to go through qualifying anymore (since they have byes to the group stage) there might be space for it. I'll look into adding it, probably to the last weekend of August before the group stage draw/registration deadline/September international break.

    [U.S.A.] (Official) League Specific Issues

    When using start dates during the MLS season (for example, in September), there are some strange goings-on regarding the MLS disabled/season-ending injury lists. 1) players occasionally start the game having been placed on the Season-Ending-Injury list for injuries that are in no sense season-ending Example: 2) players occasionally start the game on the disabled list from injuries that occurred long enough ago that they should have been removed, or were for a short enough time that it makes no sense for the AI manager to give up the ability to select them for six matches, or both. Example: I suspect that this is just strange behaviour related to how the simulation handles leagues that are in season on the start date (looking at ongoing saves, the AI seems to add players to these lists sensibly) but it does seem worth looking at? Perhaps the disabled list should not be used during the start-of-game simulation?
  12. I hope not, but let me know if they are. edit: they still do, actually, but I've updated the test file to fix that by shifting the schedule date for the qualifying round playoffs forward a week, so it SHOULD complete before the start of that international break. I've also changed the rankings of countries for qualifying spots - switching Argentina into the top group and Ukraine into the second, and switching South Korea, Japan, and China into the second group (so they now get an automatic group stage spot) instead of Romania, Belarus, and Ecuador. Of course, you'll need to re-download the test file from the top post and start a new save.

    No Steam Workshop Items Yet?

    The only way to upload to the workshop as far as I know is using the SI pregame editor or the ingame uploaders. The pregame editor isn't out for 19 and won't be out until release day. The ingame uploaders are disabled for the beta. So there's nothing on the workshop. (side note: I don't remember workshop items ever coming out before release day, and certainly not for 17 or 18)
  14. I actually have a version working with 19 (well, mostly working - the Youth League doesn't work for some reason and since 19's editor isn't out I can't determine why or fix it until release). To use it, download the file attached to the OP and place it in your FM19 editor data folder (the beta won't load FMF editor files from 18 but will load XML ones), then start a new save. (NOTE: it may take a long time to load the first career mode screen from the main menu once you've placed the XML file in the directory. This is normal, just wait.) I would encourage you not to submit bug reports to SI while using it (especially if it's anything related to scheduling or to continental competitions in general), but otherwise, have fun! Let me know if there are any other bugs using it with 19. Main changes from the last-released 18 version (I will eventually update the 18 version with them as well, and any other changes I make using the 18 editor, but don't expect any more changes to 18 once 19 releases). This test file will also work with 18 if you place it in 18's editor data folder): -various bugs relating to scheduling group stage games have been fixed. Hopefully for real this time. -the winners of the Champions League and World League now automatically qualify for the following year's Champions League group stage. -the countries that get more than 2 spots in Champions League qualifying have been rearranged as follows (roughly based on league reputation, though honestly I'm probably going to tweak it a bit before release, a few countries seem out of place to me) 1 automatic group stage place, 3 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Spain, Germany, England, Italy, France, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Argentina, 1 automatic group stage place, 2 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Ukraine, Mexico, Belgium, Turkey, Czechia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Greece, USA, Austria, Croatia, Chile, Denmark, Colombia, Paraguay, Poland, Sweden, Israel, South Korea, Japan, China. 2 places in 4th QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 3rd QR, 1 place in 2nd QR: Uruguay, Scotland 1 place in 4th QR, 1 place in 3rd QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 2nd QR: Romania, Belarus, Ecuador, Cyprus, Norway, Ivory Coast, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Peru, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Costa Rica, South Africa, Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Slovakia, Qatar, UAE, Moldova, Hungary, 1 place in 3rd QR, 1 place and the cup winner in 2nd QR: Honduras, Algeria, Iceland, Morocco, Australia, Canada, Bosnia, Nigeria, Ghana Every other FIFA member country starts in the 1st QR, with one or two spots: Countries that are playable in the base game that start here include: 2 spots (league and cup champion): Finland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, India 1 spot (league champion only): Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore

    Merging Editor Data From FM18 To FM19

    It works in 19 too, as long as it's only XML files you put in the 19 editor data folder. Thanks for the tip!
