  1. In my experience, ground sharing does not affect your revenue stream but you do have to pay some kind of rent to the host club.
  2. The situation seems completely intentional to me. Clubs only have three statuses in the database : Amateur, Semi-Professional, Professional. In reality, there are fare more nuances but to my understanding the difference between the 3 statuses is as follow : - Amateur : The players do not receive anything for playing (usually they have to pay some kind of membership fee even). - Semi-Professional : Players are able to eventually receive some money from the club but are not full time employees. - Professional : Players are full time employees. To get into how wide the range of "semi-professional" clubs is in reality, there are clubs that give some kind of bonuses depending on participation (a good example would be reimbursing transportation costs) but do not give a salary. I believe this is actually more common than club able to give a part-time salary. Another common arrangement for semi-professional clubs is to have some sponsor (or town council) employs the player on the side. In this case, the club would not give out a salary but working hours are arranged to facilitate training and the club can give out some bonuses depending on appearances or performance. Another common situation is to arrange some kind of coaching duties to your best players and they receive a salary based on their coaching duties and not the playing duties. On the other end of the spectrum, some clubs are able to afford full part-time contracts. I reckon that my knowledge IRL is not extensive with respect to football, but I do have experience with teams in other sports where the kind of working I present above is common. In my opinion, this is not a bug. And you should be happy that you are not going to get ruined by an overambitious chairman that wants to immediately handouts crazy contracts. The downside is that the players can be poached by other teams of course, which can be frustrating.
  3. You should expect that the number of players will reach this level anyway at some point in time. All teams will fill their squads so there will be very little release and retirement from the youth intakes during the first few years. Running a database this huge with such a large number of leagues will always be slow. Even if you avoid the slow start, you will not be able to avoid a huge slow down down the road. Be (mentally) prepared for this.
  4. From my experience, in terms of sorting the columns, there is no difference between all the 5 stars prospects. So it does not really make sense to distinguish in term of orders between players that have the same number of stars. Another very interesting read by the way. Seems like it could take quite a bit of time to get out of the second tier.
  5. Is that the Beinir Curse? Do everything right (study hard) and always fail the final exam!
  6. I was taking a cursory look and realised that the decision for the number of teams promoted from the inactive leagues has to be set at the top league level. Very counter-intuitive (despite being logical from a programmer's point of view, given that the status of the top league will never be changed).
  7. I would say, you look like Antoine Kombouaré at PSG. First in the league, in the run in the UEFA cup but the new director of football wanted Ancelotti so he just got fired (after 2 seasons and half and one takeover).
  8. Did you by any chance select the option to forbid taking over clubs having a manager when you created your game? If Coventry is the only team without a manager at the moment, this would make sense. (That's just a though so).
  9. Just for information, I played a new game with the dates for the Regional Premier Divisions fixed but this did not fix the random occurrence of league fixtures not generating. I have no idea what is causing this.
  10. Yes, it is in the Level 19 file. About half of them are in the same division.
  11. @Dan BHTFC: I noticed that some teams have their average attendance set at 10000 despite being lower league amateurs. I believe this is an oversight while editing as their training facilities and youth facilities are also set at 10 (which are the default value). Teams concerned: - Holbeach Bank - Chew Magna - Kingsley Park - Kingsley Wizards - Lynton - Park Rangers - Ashwater - Eastside - Purnells Sports - Thorpe Wood Rangers - Farcet United - Peterborough NECI - Long Crendon - Yateley United
  12. Congratulations on an amazing save again! Do you plan on trying to bring the World Cup to Zagreb?
