  1. Island teams

    For some reason, I always enjoy playing with teams that represent a geographic area that matches an island - none of the ambiguity about nearby villages and counties having to pick a team to support, it's just assumed they have the support of the entire island. I used to like making custom US databases when teams from Bermuda, Antigua, and Puerto Rico existed in their lower divisions. Can anyone think of examples or point to custom DBs that would unlock similar teams from places like Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man etc? I wouldn't technically include teams like Bastia, as they represent part of the island and have rivals like Ajaccio within the island. RCD Mallorca would likely count, though, as they tend to represent the entire island, same with CD Formentera, etc. Is Canvey Island even an island? Isn't there at least one river island that has a team in the English leagues?
  2. create a club with sign local players only rule

    Try mucking around with Bermuda Hogges. They used to be hard-coded for Bermudan players, maybe you can change their nationality
  3. I remember doing something like that with regions to try and make everyone born in Barcelona have a "Catalan" second nationality that was mostly unusable (although they might have played friendlies with players who hadn't committed to Spain yet). I've also wondered if it would be possible to localize such players to a specific club. In North American lower divisions, for example, there are a number of "ethnic" clubs such as Woodbridge Azzurri, London Portuguese, even clubs representing local communities from places like Eritrea. In those cases the coaches and often the players coming through are more likely to have dual nationality from a specific country.
  4. Overseas Territories in French Cup

    I tried it in FM2013 for Martinique and Guadeloupe and it still just picked a random high rep team. Didn't necessarily correspond with the domestic cup winner in those countries.
  5. Puerto Rican league gets a spot if its enabled. Or are you referring to the NPSL team? As far as I know it's dead
  6. I made a CFU file with PRFC getting in, here if you want it. As close as possible to the real-life schedule but w/ an extra qualifying round for all CFU countries (PRFC come in later with the big teams from T&T/Jamaica)
  7. this (along with the reserves I suppose) is the only "leap from reality" in the file but I like it. What would happen if they started blank? Would they sign enough guys by roster date or would it be too hard? I'm guessing there's no way to force an expansion draft?
  8. [FM2016] Second nationality updates

    Haven't tried it - have you noticed anything? It shouldn't, as far as I know...
  9. This updates some nationality declarations to better reflect reality - as in, Anton Ferdinand *could* declare for St. Lucia if he wanted to (subject to the necessary clearance - he at least has the family connection). Players like that may not end up actually declaring for the smaller nation, but in past versions I've done similar and seen Jamaica call up players like Ebanks-Blake and win the Gold Cup. Download
  10. If I can make a suggestion, triallists should be allowed to play in the preseason cups (and is there a way to code them as friendly tournaments that don't go towards a manger ranking?) . Probably an easy fix for the user but wanted to let you know
  11. Japanese League

    There was a Japanese guy who did an amazing one on previous versions, like hundreds of hours editing, not sure anyone's done a good one for 16 yet though
  12. I've resorted to just including a custom Caribbean Champs League and assuming the CFU just ignores it and sends their own representatives to the CCL, based on whatever standards they've adopted in the past ("only pro clubs can qualify", "Haitian team disqualified" etc)
  13. British Cup request

    Christ, level 26? Is that like a sunday morning over-55 league?
  14. FM2015 - caretaker manager

    It's interesting, in FM13 I think I put Sherwood as Spurs' caretaker that way and he was appointed as head-coach shortly after. Nice touch. Some smaller-rep caretaker coaches will get a few games to prove themselves I think
