    Minimum Wage (help)

    For a minimum salary, wouldn't you set the Criteria to "More Than" ? In your screenshot, you have the criteria as "Less Than". Thanks
  2. With the Pre game Editor, there is an option (under Nation Rules - Transfer section), to change the number of rounds in the various MLS Drafts including the Super Draft. No matter what number is entered for the # of rounds, after verifying the file and loading it into FM, it will always be 4 rounds in the Super Draft in FM. The # of rounds seems to be hard code.
  3. MLS: Trying to change the number of rounds in the SuperDraft and remove the Salary Cap for both team and players and also the number of DPs a team can have. There are options in the Editor this year to do all of the above, but can't get any of them to work. It seems the # SuperDraft rounds are hard coded in the game at 4 rounds. I changed to 8 rounds in the Editor and verified but still only 4 once I start a new game. Also there is still a limit (under 1 million) to the amount of money you can offer a player (non DPs) after removing the Cap on player salaries and setting the max contract size to $500,000,000. I also tried changing the # of DPs a team can have to 50, but still the max is 3-4 in the game. Anyone have any luck modifying these MLS rules with FM19 ? Thank you

    Still can't attend matches after 19.1 update :(

    I noticed this too. We were able to attend matches from the Schedule screen in FM18 and all previous versions. Can also attend matches from the Schedule screen in FMT19, which is why I think this is still a bug in FM19.

    MLS Expansion

    Only Cincinnati, Nashville and Miami are not added to MLS in FM19 or FMT19.
  6. Played around with removing the salary cap. Had success, but after simming 5 years or so teams have a lot of players on their roster that are grayed out. Can't figure out what I need to do to prevent the grayed out players from showing up on teams.
  7. I think I would put all of the MLS affiliated teams that can't be promoted in a separate league/division, maybe revise USLD3 so the league would be right above NCAA and right below the leagues/levels where teams can be promoted all the way into MLS. Only thing is this would be getting away from the way it is (in reality).
  8. I did not know that, and would have never realized this. Thank you so much !!!
  9. Thank you for the quick response, appreciated. At work now and won't be able to open up the editor until tonight. I have experimented with the USA->Fixture Rules in the past, but didn't recall seeing anything for the MLS salary cap for each team. There is a rule for Max Player contracts, but I don't believe this applies to the overall MLS salary cap for each team. I really hope I'm wrong. (did see the foreign player limits for squads).
  10. Uncle_Sam, utstanding !! Thank you for sharing your amazing work !! Very nice job !! In your Real Life USA Pyramid thread, you mention it was possible to remove the salary cap and MLS squad rules while keeping the Drafts. Could you please tell me, how to remove the MLS salary cap in the Advanced Rules ? I can't seem to find it. I'm guessing it's somewhere in the USA Rules section. I would really like to play this file without the salary cap. Thank you
  11. Sacramento is building a new 20,000 seat stadium, expandable to 22,000. Should be ready for the 2020 season. They had a ground-breaking ceremony last July. Link: SACRAMENTO REPUBLIC FC LAUNCHES MLS STADIUM CONSTRUCTION Their issue is one of their major partners pulled out last December right before MLS's expansion decision. News is they are currently in negotiations at the moment with potential new investor(s).
  12. CrowBar, If you can PM me your file or a link to your file, I will be happy to take a look at it. I think it can the playoffs working - should be possible. I may not be able to look at it until the weekend though.
  13. It is definitely possible to have different MLS league structures with FM18 and keep the SuperDraft and all MLS rules. The 2 Conferences aren't hardcoded, and hasn't been in recent versions. I've played around with various MLS league structures again with FM18. Was able to create an NFL, MLB and 4 divisions with 6 teams league structures (with all MLS rules, SuperDrafts, other drafts, teams trading, salary cap, etc). Haven't been playing FM18 for several months and the files aren't really in a state for publishing. Don't really have the time.
  14. Seems MLS is having a slight problem expanding to 26 at the moment. They are now 2 months late with the Sacramento/FC Cincinnati/Detroit decision. They say they will stop at 28 teams. Personally, I would really like to see 32 teams, with 4 divisions of 8 teams. Playoffs: 1st and 2nd place teams each division, plus 2 wildcards each conferences in playoffs (6 from each conference, 12 total), 1st place teams would get a bye.

    MLS Suggestions for FM18

    - Please remove some of the hardcoding and allow the option for Promotion/Relegation in MLS with the pre-game editor. Currently with FM17 adding in Promotion/Relegation messes up the Superdraft. - Add to option to change the salary cap in MLS.
