  1. Lewis, did you see that someone tweeted this thread to Iain MacIntosh the journalist and famous FMer and asked if you were really him?
  2. I have created my own nation with a variety of different leagues and cups. The vast majority works correctly. I would like all of my cup competitions to have 3rd place playoff matches but they don't always work. I have a national cup (winner qualifies for continental competition). For this tournament the 3rd place playoff is played each time. I have additional cups but the playoff is not played. In the editor both cups have the 3rd/4th playoff option enabled and the settings for this are identical however it only gets played in the national cup. Any ideas appreciated.
  3. Lewis, what's the latest from Avrilia? On my FM14 game we have reached 2073 and Leopold Petrol have won the first division for the third time in four seasons holding off perennial challengers Southern Cross. Celeste Spiders who won seven of the previous eight titles have dropped away since their manager quit. Many of the players from their successful sides have moved on.
  4. It's the summer of 2066 in Tontuga. The national team failed to qualify for the World Cup but have appointed a very experienced English manager (me!) as coach of the national team. At 85 years old, maybe the new manager is too old but he is the most successful manager that has managed in Tontuga. He is the manager of the reigning champions, Celeste Spiders, who have won four of the last five first division titles. The Spiders have climbed back up the pyramid over the last ten years after dropping down to the Third Division. As one of the Grand 4 clubs from the Dutch Eastern province of Tontug
  5. Great to get a news update from Avrilia - they are always worth waiting for! My game world has reached 2057 - we move at a slightly quicker pace than Avrilia. In the national first division, Clinton Tigers won the title for the second time, having broken their duck back in 2054. Tigers come from Clinton, a suburb city on the southern banks of the Elizabeth river, across the river from the nations capital Kensington. They won the title on goal difference from the nation's most successful side, Southern Cross (19 titles since 1960). Previous winners Celestehaven (4) and Esk Sporting Club (7) c
  6. Hi, I've created a new league and cup structure for a made up country using basic/advanced rules. Does anybody know how to successfully create a third placed play off for a cup competition? I've had a look through the advanced rules but can't really tell which one you might use for this purpose. Does any one have any ideas? Thanks
  7. What are the latest goings on in Avrilia? Re-reading I see I didn't answer a question. My nation is definitely integrated in the wider football world with the Tontugan national team having won the African Nations Cup. We are now in 2041 and four Tontugan sides have won the African Champions League. Eskmouth Oil did it first under AI control. Then my human managed teams Leopold City, Elizabeth and Southern Cross have all won it too. Southern Cross are consistently Africa's top ranked club and the first division is now the top ranked African league. I've just resigned at Southern Cross and am
  8. In addition all clubs have a healthy starting bank balance and available transfer budget. The transfer preferences are just the default settings. I did try adding a transfer window but that had no effect on AI transfers. Thanks for your help so far!
  9. I don't actually have any transfer window set. I have since created new competitions in other countries to test the problem. I created an Algerian league structure with no transfer window. Their clubs sign players freely. For my custom league plus Nigeria: no sides controlled by AI sign any players. When playing as a team in my custom league and in Nigeria I can sign players though.
  10. I've created a custom league using a heavily edited Sao Tome. During testing I have noticed that the teams in this nation never sign players from other clubs. Is there any obvious reason why this could have happened? In the editor I have set a couple of rivals to not sign players from each other but that surely can't be preventing the whole nation from signing players. Some loan deals are happening but no free transfers or paid deals.
  11. Have you been testing the leagues so far? I've just transferred my custom league from FM14 to FM15 and have noticed in testing that the AI clubs don't sign any players!
  12. My database was made in fm14. Just re-read my message from before. I meant to say that Fm15 hasn't had a look in yet! Interestingly my Fm14 FB does work in the fm15 editor so I'm having a play around with it as I had a few ideas for improving the level of detail in my game.
  13. Keep it coming. These updates are fun to read. Thanks again for posting the original thread last year - not sure if I've ever been so hooked on a save as I am now with my own fictional little world! I've been zipping through and now find myself in December 2036. My original human manager has taken the job at Southern Cross, one of the biggest clubs in the country who were going through a title drought. He previously had success turning around Leopold City and Queenstown. My second human manager won three national titles on the bounce with Elizabeth and has dropped a couple of divisions to
  14. Thanks for the tip! I was a bit annoyed when I installed on a new laptop and had lost my place in the Hall of Fame!
