  1. 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.
  2. Please give some attention to the function of managing in America, and how the youth system works there. With the financial restrictions that are present when managing in the MLS, the only way to really sustain long-term success and growth is through a good youth program. But in FM17 there isn't a whole lot that you can do with that. There are no U18 or U20 leagues and no real way to develop youth players other than playing them in the first team or loaning them out to a 2nd or 3rd tier American team that FM won't even simulate games for. There is also the issue of the U.S. Development Academy, which is seemingly the only way to find American players under 17, but you cannot sign players from the academy, it is just locked.
  3. Matt's on a Journey, Man!

    After following @Makoto Nakamura awesome posts from his African and currently American journeyman saves I though about doing the same. (Disclaimer, I've never done anything like this so any pointers / tips / criticism please fire away) and I intend to start as low as possible using the awesome USA database created by @Uncle_Sam with the following leagues loaded:- My manager looks like:- I've found if you're the nationality of the country you're managing in you get job offers more, whether its coded like that I don't know but just something I found. I'm American and part English (I'm English) and favourite team is Newcastle (just like real life) and I'll be applying for teams in the NCAA to get me started. I want to try and win as much as possible in America before going to Mexico and Argentina before either going back to the states or England. Rules for myself are I won't resign from a team unless I've won at least 1 trophy (pre season tournaments do not count), I will only apply for jobs if they are teams that have a badge because I don't like playing with those default badges, I do have logos installed but there's a few trams that don't have 1 and I will not take a job at any of Sunderland, Aston Villa, Leeds, LA Galaxy or Scotland. I plan on doing monthly (in game) updates although as a family man and father of 3 I don't get to play FM as much as I would like so it may be that I provide 3 monthly updates but we'll see. Hopefully you guys can join me as I live the American dream, sort of!
  4. USA Expansion File Have you ever played an MLS save and wished that you could see highlights of players that you loan to your USL affiliate? Have you ever wanted to observe your Academy prospects? Have you ever drafted a player from a PDL club like the Mississippi Brilla and wish that it was from an actual NCAA collegiate program like in real life? Have you ever wanted to take control of your local amateur side, like the Knoxville Force, and try to beat your archrivals and win the league? That’s what this file is for. As much as possible with the limitations of the editor, we have tried to recreate a real life FM experience for the unique structure of the sport in the United States. All-in-all, there are over 600 playable teams in 8 levels of competition. Major League Soccer - This file adds Los Angeles FC and David Beckham’s Miami franchise (Inter Miami) to the 2017 expansion. Also added are MLS Rivalry competitions for NYRB-NYFC, LA Galaxy v. LAFC, and Orlando City v. Inter Miami. MLS teams will also prepare for the season in one of seven preseason exhibition tournaments (ATX Pro Challenge, Carolina Challenge Cup, Desert Diamond Cup, IMG Suncoast Pro Classic, Las Vegas Pro Soccer Challenge Cup, Simple Invitational, Walt Disney Pro Soccer Classic). North American Soccer League - Adds the announced future expansion teams in Orange County, CA (California Athletic FC) and San Diego (San Diego Waves). The league format is at it is in real life, with a Spring and Fall season. The two winners advance to the Championship semifinals, joining the top two qualifiers from the overall table (three if the same team wins both spring and fall). United Soccer League - Includes expansion side Nashville SC and Austin Aztex off hiatus. The league is split into two conferences (as in real life), with each conference having an eight-team playoff whose winners compete in the USL Cup. All 24 MLS clubs have affiliates in USL, so this is a chance to keep a better eye on developing players. NCAA Division I - 206 NCAA teams have been added. The format is as close as possible to real life. There is a spring season where teams can get a look at their players heading into the fall. The regular season consists of 9-10 non-conference matches to go with their conference schedule. As in real life, 21 of the 24 conferences will have a tournament that is set up to reflect the real life format. Each conference will send its champion, along with 24 at-large qualifiers, to the NCAA Division I Championship tournament to compete the national title. The MLS SuperDraft will draw players from the NCAA, as in real life, so MLS clubs can scout for future talent. Premier Development League - The PDL is set up as in real life, with 10 divisions that feed a 22-team championship tournament. The teams play a 14-match schedule during the summer. National Premier Soccer League - Also set up as in real life with 4 Regions divided into “conferences”. The four region winners advance to compete for the NPSL Championship. The teams play a 12-match summer schedule. United States Soccer Development Academy - The USSDA is divided into 7 Divisions. In all, 32 teams qualify for the USSDA Championship tournament. This is as close to how it functions in real life as possible, with the only difference being the schedule. It is impossible to run the league on a Fall-Spring calendar, so it runs a 30-match schedule on a Spring-Fall calendar. All MLS clubs have academies in the league, so if you manage in MLS you can see potential prospects from you academy. USASA Amateur Leagues - Six of the more prominent amateur leagues in the US have been included. The American Soccer League, American Premier Soccer League, Southern Premier Soccer League, Premier League of America, and the United Premier Soccer League are all represented as close to their real life format as possible, competing to earn a spot in the US Open Cup. Additional Add-Ons I have also included downloads for Club and Competition Logos, as well as Club kits. This will give every team logos and kits, and logos for every competition as well. (Included in my file are MLS kits that were originally created by kifla6 and downloaded from here: https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/32059/usa-mls-ss2017-new-070517-not-sskcc-yet. Those kits ARE included in the download below, with permission from the author) Download (for version 1.3) - http://www.mediafire.com/file/atrsao41ao54jdh/USA_Expansion_Graphics.rar Update - Latest version 1.2 CHANGE LIST -Bug causing teams in the NCAA and the USSDA to send their players on holiday before the Championship Tournament has been fixed. The USSDA Championship stages will not only be visible in the USSDA Divisions, but the history will be viewable in the USSDA Championship Competition. -The USSDA Championship is now set up even closer to real life. The Group Stage will take place entirely at the large Grand Park facility in Westfield, Indiana. The Quarterfinal will be played at the club sites, with the Semifinal, Third Place Playoff, and Final played at the StubHub Center practice fields. -The recently-announced USL Expansion team Fresno FC has been added. Fresno FC and the 2 NASL expansion teams will now enter the US Open Cup in 2018. -There have been some changes to update some club and competitions graphics. The graphics are now in one file. Update - Latest version 1.3 CHANGE LIST -Fixed an issue where the NCAA teams weren't able to register players for their competitions. Now there is no registration required and they have a maximum team size of 30 -Adjusted the MLS league and playoff schedule to reflect real life -Adjusted the US Open Cup so that the regional draw is more accurate (not perfect, but MUCH better and closer to real life). I was also annoyed that the draw was occurring the day that the round was played when it should have been the day after, so I fixed that. -Added the new Las Vegas team to USL. They haven't announced their name/logo but there is a movement to revive the old Quicksilvers so that's what I went with, inspired by a concept designed by Raysox at SportsLogos.net -Added several rivalries to try and spice up the lower leagues a bit Disclaimers I cannot guarantee that this file will function properly with any other third party DB editor file. I use it with some and it works fine, but I have not tested it with every other file available. If you use a file that includes created competitions and/or clubs, then it will affect the graphics download and they will not work properly. Furthermore, if you use a file that fixes the names of competitions, then you will probably need to manually adjust it so that it doesn’t alter the names of the competitions in this file. I have a file that I fixed, but I cannot post it here because even without looking I’m sure it’s against the rules. I will post the file at other sites where I upload this database. Warning It should also be noted that if you select an NCAA team, the game will crash if you click on the competitions tab. This is likely because the NCAA D1 Soccer competition has 206 teams in it. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the game itself and cannot be helped without damaging the overall experience of the game. USA Expansion 1.3_90EDD1D6-0000-4DFB-9314-9B31364516F7.fmf
  5. Daniel Smith The American Journeyman A lot of English speaking nations loaded up, along with big European leagues. The main difference is that I've downloaded an add-on that makes the lower American leagues playable, with some changes. Division 1 - MLS Division 2 - USL (USL and NASL combined) Division 3 - PDL Division 4 - Academy League Division 5 - NPSL Daniel Smith World Class Next Time: We find an actual job?
  6. Have anybody tried to make a custom league that has the same structure like NFL. By that I'm meaning a league where: anuall entry draft standard contracts for rookies no cash transfers no transfer in/out from the country complete collage system (only source of regents) trades (players and draft picks only) player rights Kind of like the MLS without own youth players and the rest of the world. Plus a few extra tweaks. I don't know if this makes any sense? Is it possible to make a league like this?
  7. does anybody know of a decent database for USA leagues other than the MLS? im looking to start a journeyman save and want to load every european league, plus some USA leagues
  8. I'm currently rebuilding a fantasy USA. moved inline with english league dates. Do any of you have any good advice on the best way to determine if my leagues and new cups will, 1) if the teams play too many game or get a fixture pile up? 2) if/where clashes with international fixtures may occur? How good is the editor/engine at separating out to be fair, across the board. Or it is a case of holiday/play a year with various levels? At moment a team in the top league making a domestic treble with no CL fixtures will play 54 games from 1/8/17 - 1/6/17. Is it better to make sure all my cup date for the main/league coincide with the european dates as a base? I'm not sure what occurs on those dates in the USA already.. (if you get my meaning).
  9. Welcome to version 1.0 of The United Stated Project. With this first release, I aim to get everything accurate for the 2016 and 2017 seasons of all 3 professional "soccer" leagues in the USA.
