I've put together version of my Neloxia file before, and after learning how to import into FM19, I've started testing a version of it. I don't have any logos or anything for it (though if someone wanted to work to do that, I'd be up for putting stuff together) Neloxia is in Europe, replaced Gibraltar and is meant to become a world power nation in short order. You read more about Neloxia from the past in these posts or last year's file, the FM16 version I released just before FM17 was released and so it did really well on the Steam Workshop since people wanted something to play. Neloxian football is weird, here are some of the quirks. Neloxia file: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1760235375 LigaPremier features 5 point wins (I've been doing this for years and I prefer it.) Top 8 teams in the LigaPremier compete for a $100m Championship Playoffs at the end of the season. Top 3 teams in LigaPremier are relegated to the LigaExcel. The next 4 worst teams compete in a relegation playoff. Top 3 teams in the LigaExcel get promoted. Top 4 teams in the LE play in a promotion playoff. Lots of TV money at the top, so good incentives to make it. There are a few lower division teams with sugar daddy owners who are yearning to take their clubs to the top, so check them out!

Overview: This file redefines the English league structure into regional divisions through all the levels, including the top flight. The structure is as follows: Teams can move laterally to make up numbers in the divisions but can never move between the two separate halves of the structure. There are a total of 644 teams in the pyramid, with 262 in the North, and 382 in the South. Premier Leagues: In each of these leagues, each of the 12 teams plays all the others twice each (home and away) for 22 games. After this the leagues split. The top 4 teams in each league create an 8 team championship playoff league, which they keep their existing points going in to. In this mini-league they then play each team home and away to determine a final placing of these top 8 teams. The bottom 8 teams in each league also create their own mini-leagues, playing each other home and away again in order to decide the three teams which are relegated from each half. Again, points from the first stage carry over in to the second half of the season. Much like the real life Scottish premiership, teams from the relegation group cannot overtake teams in the championship playoff in the final standings, even though they might end up on more points from playing the weaker opposition. Below are screenshots from a simulated season showing this all in action. Continental qualification is untouched and goes to the top 7 teams in the championship playoff Championships: Unlike the two premier leagues, the championships operate independently of one another, as do the two structures on all the remaining levels of the pyramid. The Northern and Southern Championships both contain 20 teams, with 3 teams getting promoted (two automatically and one from a 4 team playoff) to the relevant premier league and 4 teams getting relegated (all automatic) to the relevant conference. Conferences: The final fully linear level of each half of the pyramid are the Northern and Southern Conferences. Each of these contains 24 teams. In each half 4 teams gain promotion (3 automatically, one from a 4 team playoff) to the relevant championship. In the Northern Conference, 3 teams are relegated down to the Northern Regional Premier Leagues (North-West Premier League, North-East Premier League, Midlands League 1) and in the Southern Conference, 4 teams are relegated down to the Southern Regional Premier Leagues (Southern League and Central Premier League). Lower Divisions: The remaining divisions, going down to an eight tier are shown above and get increasingly more regional as you go down the levels, down to the Sussex & Wessex County Championship and the Heart of England Championship on the 8th tier of the pyramid. As in the real life structure, it is possible for any team anywhere in the pyramid to get increasingly promoted up to the top flight. A selection of divisions are shown below. Cups: There are a variety of cups throughout the league structures, some national and some regional. National Cups: FA Cup: Contains teams from tiers 1-5 Northern/Southern League Cup: Contains the teams tiers 1-3 in the relevant half FA Community Shield: Between the winner of the Premier League and the FA Cup FA Regional Shield: Contains teams from tiers 4-6 Regional Cups: East Anglian Cup: Contested by teams in the Anglian Premier Division, North Anglian League and South Anglian League. Final played at Carrow Road. Sussex & Wessex Challenge Trophy: Contested by teams in the Sussex and Wessex County Premiership and Championship. Semi-finals and Final played at the Amex Stadium. Southern League Cup: Contested by teams in the Southern League, Southern League West, Southern League East Divisions 1 & 2, Heart of England League and the Heart of England Championship. Final played at Wembley. Central League Cup: Contested by teams in the Central Premier League, Central League East, Central League London and the Greater London County League (best 6 teams only). Final played at Wembley. Midlands Shield: Contested by teams in the Midlands Leagues 1 & 2, the West Midlands League and the East Midlands Premiership and Championship. Final played at Villa Park. North-Western Cup: Contested by teams in the North-Western Premiership and Championship. Final played at Old Trafford. North-Eastern Cup: Contested by teams in the North-Eastern Premiership and Championship, and the Premiership of Yorkshire. Final played at the Stadium of Light. Greater London Cup: Contested by teams in the Central League London and the Greater London County League. Final played at the Emirates Stadium. Youth Setup: All teams have an U23 and an U18 team, although only the teams in the top few tiers have their youth teams play in youth leagues. This is to be added later, however it still allows youth development of players now. Known Issues: The winner of the FA Cup does not yet get qualification to the UEFA Cup Makes Scotland an unplayable nation Download: v1.0 - Regional English Leagues v1.fmf This is my first major database edit so any feedback is greatly appreciated.
Hey guys, I am planning on creating a new nation on football manager editor. In this nation I would like to create local regional leagues, however I do not know how to do this and I have not found any video or information on how to create regional divisions. I wanted to ask if one of you would walk me through how to achieve a workable regional league set up.
This is a purely fictional mod, there are no real current American or Canadian teams present in the database. Also full disclosure, I'm British, so forgive any cultural mistakes. The italic text below is fictional background story to give some context to the database. It's a bit far-fetched, but given it's describing something that never happened I figured it kind of had to be. Read it or don't, that's up to you. Makes it more interesting though The year is 1869. The era of the steam train is well under way, cutting journey times into tiny fractions of what they were only decades earlier, and a new import has made its way across the Atlantic: football. British immigrants with fond memories of watching and playing organised, semi-professional football under the authority of the newly-formed English Football Association start their own, new teams in the cities and townships of America. Unlike our own universe, the sport takes off immediately, with American audiences quickly forming loyal and intense attachments to teams representing their local areas and businesses. Football quickly becomes the most popular sport in America, and by the turn of the century there are over 200 clubs playing the professional game across 14 large and varying regions. The number of professional and semi-professional clubs continues to grow well into the 20th century, despite two years pause between 1916 and 1918, and in 1932 a record attendance of 174,883 is set for the final of the US Cup between Manhatten Borough and Cleveland United at Hammond Road, Chicago IL, with a whopping $400,000 up for grabs. Cleveland come out on top in a narrow 2-1 win, with captain Harry Biggs scoring a dramatic 88th minute winner in front of the 70,000 ecstatic United fans. The invasion of Pearl Harbour in 1941 and the subsequent entry of the United States into World War Two grounds the professional game until 1946. After the war, football continues to grow, and a number of official regions begin to merge due to shorter travel times. On June 5th, 1958, the AFA holds a vote in Milwaukee, WI, on the matter of forming America's first national league, with advancements in air travel over the course of the previous two decades allowing teams to make much longer trips. Two of the ten board members vote against the motion, citing jet lag concerns and low numbers of travelling fans, but the majority vote to go ahead, and the National Division 1 is formed. The move proves to be a great success, with millions upon millions of expectant fans tuning into their wireless each Saturday afternoon to listen to their teams playing far-off cities in the hopes of a win. The average attendance to a Division 1 game in 1960 is 84,233. The radio advertising industry swells, and within 5 years a second national division is formed. The explosion of television expands the market yet further, and by 1980 there are four major national divisions, with a tree of increasingly regional professional and semi-professional leagues below them. Further alterations to the football pyramid in 1989, 1996 and most recently in 2009, have now left us with 7 national divisions, with a competitive and complex pyramid of regional divisions beneath these, and a wealth of major and minor cups and shields. The US National Team are the favourites for the 2018 World Cup, and the 2016-17 domestic season saw yet another record average attendance of 112,988. Sound interesting? This is the plan: This is not a simple database edit, it is to be a fully-packaged mod containing a comprehensive custom database and a set of fictional kits and logos to be put into your graphics folder. It is my aim to give each fictional team a real identity, with real depth. It is to be a long-term project which I can hopefully port over to future iterations of FM. No fields will be left blank, so here are some of the things you can expect to have been covered: All the usual data - rep, morale, status, ownership, rivals, attendance, season tickets, finances etc Home/Away/Third Kit Logo Last 5 years league history Records Bespoke stadium with location/local-culture-based name and unique capacity/expansion capacity I plan to add roughly 1,200 teams over 50-60 leagues with full promotion and relegation. The top 7 will be national (might lower this to 6), with a regional pyramid below. Clubs will be almost all professional from levels 1-8, and largely semi-professional with the ocassional amataeur team below. Each division will have at least 2 automatic promotions spots, with four more teams qualifying for an English-style playoff. Relegation will be decided by a combination of automatic relegation and relegation playoffs. Given the larger population of the US compared to England, there will be a less significant gap in attendance, finance, ability etc between tiers. Tier 2 for example will still have huge teams from major cities with 80k+ attendances. Tier 4 roughly 30k attendances, Tier 7 perhaps 10k. I plan to create a team for every city in this list (and major cities will have multiple): https://www.biggestuscities.com/ If your hometown/city is not on this list and you'd like it to have a team in the database, feel free to comment below and I'll add it in. Beware though, if it's a very small town you'll be stuck with a poor amateur club in the lowest reaches Edit: I can add you as a player too. If there is sufficient interest in this I'll aim to have a playable 'BETA' of just the top division by December 10th, with the rest being rolled out in stages/updates.
