Hello, I wanted to start this thread to create discussion around (potentially) resurrecting nations that no longer exist. I'm not necessarily going to be the one making those database and may not even be posting a lot. I at least want to create a thread where people can talk and share their findings regarding those topics. As you may know, it is possible to resurrect or defunct nations thanks to some files created by the community. It's also possible to change the structure if the UEFA Nations League to accommodate for that. I will link to the relevant threads below. I will also link to the FM16 Iron Curtain database, that featured a similar setup: maybe @MBarbaric can chime in... That said and as I've said elsewhere, you may need a lot more work than that to make such database viable... if it's possible at all! Among things that could use more consideration would be not only tweak the Nations League, but every other UEFA competition including the U19s to account for the correct number of teams; changing the Champions' League and Europa League qualification places; making sure the World Cup qualifying tournament works properly... in other words, a huge ordeal that may go against hard-coded features in the database. As for myself, I tried resurrecting Yugoslavia. This involved not only removing all seven ex-Yugoslavian countries from Europe and moving Yugoslavia into the continent; but also changing the nationality of every club and local region; changing the first and second nationality of every people; copying tax rules, transfer preferences, transfer and wage values from the biggest sports country from the area, which unsurprisingly is Croatia; among other things I may have forgotten. And for the most part, it would work... if the database wasn't consistently crashing on December 15th no matter what. I had thought that the UEFA U19s Championship was the issue, but deleting it didn't fix it. I thought not having 55 countries/national teams in Europe was the problem, but adding back six out of the seven ex-Yugoslavian countries to make up for it doesn't change anything. Thought it was that I didn't add leagues to the nation; that's not it. That said, and as seen in a thread I'm going to link to, you can indeed just "replace" a nation by another one and it works seamlessly (and works even without nations rules nor leagues mind you). I've replaced France by Yugoslavia with no issue whatsoever. I'm going to link to my editor files below; may anyone find some use to them. As I said before, it may very well be a completely pointless endeavour, and I have to warn you about that. Nevertheless, for those who may attempt such a challenge, now you have my experience in the matter. I still hope the thread is going to get somewhere though...

Bridging The Divide- an East German rejuvenation story Ever since German reunification in 1990, East German football is has been taking a dive. In the 2015/16 season there was no East German clubs in the Bundesliga following RB Leipzig's controversial promotion in 2016 there is now currently one. I the World Cup winning German side of 2015 was born in East Germany, Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos being that one. In the past, before reunification, East German teams struggled to keep up with their West German counterparts. West Germany winning 2 World Cups while the East relatively struggled. A bright light in the countries footballing history was FC Magdeburg, the team won the now disbanded, European Cup Winners Cup, bringing continental glory to the country. Since the 1990/91 season (first season with East German teams back in the competition) the Bundesliga has been contested 25 times won every time by a West German club, similar story with the DFB Pokal, well exact same story to be precise. The aim in this career is to even out the competition. Have East German teams win as many Bundesligas, DFB Pokals and Champions Leagues as the West. As well as evening out the spread of clubs and members of the national team between the 2 sides of Germany. The current spread looks like this. And you may be wondering how this task will be completed. 20 year old manager Bannan Brucke, will start off with no coaching badges and Sunday League reputation at a club from East Germany in the 3. Bundesliga. He will move around the East German clubs trying to improve their reputation, place on the pyramid, team and facilities. By doing this and using different techniques, I believe that there is hope for football in East Germany
