  1. Playing as other roles

    Told me to "make your own game, if people don't like it". Basically, his response was that if people didn't like how he was doing FM (and the features that he chose) should find another game to play, or make their own.
  2. Ah okay, didn't know that. Thanks, will look for it when I next get the option. Thanks!
  3. I assume you are talking about them asking for a number when squad numbering has to be decided, the OP goes deeper than them just "liking" a number. The current system has absolutely no effect on the players whatsoever.
  4. Ironman mode

    I can understand the need for this, as I'd need to use it often :P. However, in the past I have dealt with crashes and corrupt saves which are often saved by the 3 save rolling system.
  5. One game

    I've been wanting FM to become a two year cycle for a while now. Then release database updates as DLC. Sadly, this won't happen for several reasons. People will cry because another game is selling DLC. SI won't receive as much through sales if they are only selling databases as DLC, you can't offer a database DLC for more than 5-10 dollars (estimated guess of course). Then there is also the issue of the editor, people would just use the free databases until the new game. So yeah, as much as I'd like to see the development be a little less rushed to release yearly, I can't see it changing anytime soon.
  6. Along with this suggestion, I'd suggest that once a shirt number is assigned it is locked to that player until they leave the club permanently (I believe players who leave on loan retain their shirt numbers). There could be several ways of changing a player's number, two possible suggestions to that are: 1) Player asks to change his number, 2) A new signing was promised a number, ask the player (who is currently wearing it) if they would be willing to change. Would like to see the above suggestion included either way!
  7. Extend Trial

    Never thought about this before until I saw the title. Brilliant suggestion!
  8. [Suggestion] Youth Intake Date

    Glad I am not the only one who thinks this is how it should be done. The players skills shouldn't automatically be known, and like scouting or taking a player on a trail it should take time before you know the player's full report card.
  9. Training Pitch

    This would be an awesome feature, so would love to see it in the future! I might actually take set-pieces seriously then.
  10. Currently in my Gibraltar save I want to loan players out to other Gib teams to ensure that the players remain within Gibraltar to ensure that they can represent the country in the future. So this feature would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Agree, especially if you want to retrain a player (I know there is an option to ask the club to play him in a certain position, but that's not always enough). On player instructions, I'd like to be able to talk to players more about why I'd like them to join a certain club. Sometimes it's not always about just getting playing time.
  12. I'd love this to be available for clubs. For example I am playing as Cannons in Gibraltar, been at the club for 20 seasons and have 108mil in the bank. I've got a point where I can do nothing with that money, at least not yet. Facilities are being upgraded, Senior is about to be Exceptional, Youth is being upgraded but not costing lots. Hell, I'm even upgrading the Victoria Stadium, which is used by most the teams in the league. Now what I'd like to be able to do, or more accurately in FM terms, I'd like my owner (who is Danial Levy, he took over early on in the save) to use some of that money to help improve infrastructure or anything really that is related to football within the region. I've noticed that other clubs in the Gib league have got money (like 60+ mil) and they aren't even upgrading their facilities. Something needs to be done with the amount of money that can be found at the clubs.
  13. I've been thinking about this for a few years, although I think in the end it'll be a beast to implement correctly. Basically, CA/PA would only be at the start. From then on out, it's how players perform. At the end of the season, the players are basically regenerated based on the season they had. It would need to look at their teammates, and how the team did as a whole. As I said, a beast to implement.
  14. Once a player reaches accomplished they need to play regularly in their new position to become a Natural. Although, as mentioned above it can take forever. I used to play with wing-backs, I had a player being accomplished at LWB play in the position for 4 or so seasons and he never became natural.
  15. Player interaction has been a thorn in my side throughout my Gib save. We are doing well enough (20 seasons in, reached knockout stages of the CL twice and been in the group stages 4 times), and my players are getting to the point where clubs from bigger leagues are taking notice of them. I've had a number of players with high release clauses (often between 7mil and 15mil). So when clubs are interested in them, they start telling me how they want to join those clubs. I state that they have a release clause in their contracts, to which they reply that they don't want to let this opportunity pass them by. Yet the responses you get to that are absolutely crap, and pretty much ensure that you agree to sell the player no matter the offer being made, or you have an unhappy player. You should be able to state to the player that they agreed to the terms of their contract and so should abide by it. If their release clause is met, then they are free to go. SI really need to relook at all their player interaction options and improve upon them.
