Are there any editors, either pre-game or in-game; official, free or paid, for Football Manager Touch 16 or 17 on a Windows PC? I want to get into FMT as I don't have time for FM. The pre-game editor is one of my favourite features but (correct me if I'm wrong) this isn't available for Touch. As FMT17 is only just out, I know there isn't likely to be anything yet so what about FMT16?
My intention with this topic is to show an obvious flaw regarding youngsters and their attributes. The ones who have 0 in the pre-game editor in particular. Part A-Youngsters and their "Decisions" attribute. I manage Olympiacos in Greece (FM17) and while comparing my U20s Team with other teams from my league, I noticed this: "Worst in Greek U20s Group 1"... "Why is the Decisions attribute so low" I asked myself. Ah, yes! It's because I edited all my players who had 0 in their attributes in the pre-game editor and gave them more reasonable stats. This is how they look now (which gave me the "Worst" result) and how they looked before any editing: And this is the mental comparison before any editing: But wait a minute. Does this mean that now I have to compete with a bunch of smart Einstein's? Let's have a look at the other teams and the "Decisions" attribute from their players (without any editing): In every FM version the same thing happens. The game gives unreasonable values for youth players with 0, and it especially gives a very high Decisions attribute for some reason. Part B-The not so reasonable distribution of attributes in youngsters. Let's compare some youngsters from my team who had 0 in all their attributes and my editing afterwards: (Image to the left=Before any editing, Image to the right=After editing) (Besides the editing in all their attributes, I increased the CA of some youngsters by 5 points (for example, CA60 became CA65) Now, a question for anyone who read this topic: If you had to choose between the "before" and "after" youngsters, who would you buy? Conclusion Why do you(people at SI) make me edit all those players every year? Why? Can't you add some attributes on your own? Yes, I know that there is no way you can know the current ability of those young players. Fine! Just create templates, I don't care. I don't care if you create "samey" saves. Besides, the vast majority of real life players at those ages (15y-18y) are the same. Only a 5% is what stands out and become great footballers. There is also this very good topic, which shows some very bad results regarding the "Important Matches" attribute for youngsters who have 0 in it. Please, do something.
Anyone have this issue? Game works fine, downloaded the editor from steam but after it loads the database, the editor button isn;t highlighted (greyed out) and then cannot perform any edits. Additions / deletions are ok - but can't edit. Any ideas? I'm no newbie have played FM for years and used the pre-game editor for years too without issue. I have uninstalled and re-installed 3 times and the same issue arises - I have checked my virus software (Bitdefender) - no apps being blocked, I used Windows 10 and purchased/downloaded the game via steam. Game plays fine ( played 20 matches) . Thanks in advance for any help. Cheers GL.
