  1. I just yesterday installed Ubuntu dual boot with Windows 10, as a test mostly. But while my PC is not affected by the requirements of Windows 11 i really don't like this scummy practice. I have very basic knowledge of Linux, but installing Ubuntu and steam, was rather easy. Right now i have FM21 loaded running in steam with Proton 6.3-5. I was expecting this to be more hassle and would probably take some performance hit when playing, but i actually feel like the process times when pressing continue have gone slightly down. This is just a feeling though :) but it has made me quite happy with the "move". My only "problem" is i cant find the folder for all the tactics / Editor data / Graphics and such on the Ubuntu, i can find the folder on my Windows disk, and found the "location" in preference that created a folder in /home/documents in Linux, but if i subscribe to anything on steam i have no idea where it stores it :) i will need to study Linux bit more for that. Somehow all the graphics i had working on Windows are working fine on Linux too. I really hope they bring back Linux support, but if they don't i am almost certain Proton will be able to run it.
  2. I use the prioritize scouting assignment quite a lot. Mostly because I want to scout alot of players and then find one really interesting player or switch focus area. But it is very cumbersome to go into scouting center, assignments and then find the player in the list and press prioritize. I would suggest we have the option in the drop down menu of each player after we press get scout report. Then there would appear a new item instead of get scout report to prioritize scout report.
  3. Hello again, I have a few ideas, but i want to ask how best to present them, should i make a single thread for each or one big thread with all of them presented ? World Cup in FM is very under utilized i think. I as a manager i am always subscribed to the WC when it comes around but i almost miss it, the only reason i notice it is because my players get called up. This item should be very publicized / Important in the the "world of FM" when it finally rolls around it should be the front menu item every time you press continue. Right now i have to dig down into the interface to even find the games that are being played or see results. I know maybe not everyone think this should be front material of their Management carrier when they are a club manager, but maybe a month before the tournament you could have a button like for when the transfer window closes that you could option in or out to participate in the tournament. You could be offered a job analyzing the games for a TV station or you could decide to watch it from the couch at home At least the results of the games and top 5 players form the games should be plastered over the screen when you press continue. The WC is an example, i feel all international tournaments should have more importance. For me WC and Euros are the biggest, but others like Copa America and Africa cup of nations, would probably interest others more. Also the results of the tournament dont seem to have a big influence in the game. Players reputation for performing well at a WC should skyrocket while a under performing one should take a hit. Most large clubs now dont want to discuss transfers of players involved in WC until after the tournaments, this could easily be implemented too.
  4. Right now i feel only a small amount of this is featured in FM, We have media items about a number of players transferred to and from your club, and in transfers there is confidence metering on how good each deal was, but i think added depth would give more realistic media items. Statistics showing the squad value when you took over a club and how it has changed over the period of your management. This could be tied to both transfers confidence and finance for your performance review or the teams yearly review on if it has increased or fallen. If doing impressively or poorly, there could be media items to criticize you or praise you for your performance in this department. Media items talking about your spending through the years, that could give you labels as a shrewd wheeler dealer or a manger who buys success. Media items talk about a player who "got away" (a player sold, for low amount, to a lower reputation club, now performing great or recently sold again for high price to a high reputation club.) When taking over a new club, Media could discuss how your transfer policies have been at previous clubs, drag up statistics that this may be a first job where you have considerable transfer budget as your previous clubs have not have not had that and discuss how you will handle the pressure of dealing with that or not. The reverse could also apply, going from a rich club to a poor one.
