Riz, I'd be interested to know what extra data can be configured for future regens. Would this work with a standard config file with the "FUTURE_REGEN" command if created by a user? If so, would you be able to let us know the commands for the extra data? Thanks. :)

will these players only appear once in the game, and are they set to not retire until they are older? I have seen one of you guys now unemployed for 3 seasons but still in the game, i would have thought a normal regen would have retired by then?

YES!!!! I would love to add myself and some mates but not assign them teams, just have them coming through at random teams anywhere.

I always get PMLF (Paulo Freitas) and Brocky in my games. ;) Never had miles though, as I'd like to buy him. :D

Note: Any players you add in through the FUTURE_REGEN system will also show up on a faceinthegame search

I had Glen Tooke in my team, but he's rubbish and got released on a free pretty pretty sharpish.

If I remember correctly, and I'm sure Riz can correct me but we had to give them our Name, Date of Birth (Day and Month only) and favourite club. Would be good if they managed to change this to allow position as well ;)

The data for the "FUTURE_REGEN" command can be found in that link posted above, but there is another command for "DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" with some extra fields for more detail.

EDIT: Here's the usage:
"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "First Name" "Common Name" "Last Name" "Birth date(dd/mm/yyyy)" "Nation (first nationality)" "Favourite Team" "Ethnicity" "Skin Tone" "Hair Colour" "Height (in cm)" "Weight (in kg)" "Preferred Foot" "Preferred Position" "Favourite Number" "Birth City"

Everything else should be self-explanatory, but here are the values that can be used for Ethnicity, Skin Tone, Hair Colour, Preferred Foot and Position:

Ethnicity:
Unknown/random = -1
Northern europe = 0
Mediterrean/hispanic = 1
North african/middle eastern = 2,
African/caribbean = 3,
Asian = 4,
South east asian = 5,
Pacific islander = 6,
Native american = 7,
Native australian = 8,
Mixed race white/black = 9
East asian = 10

Skin tone:
a value of 1-20, with 1 being the lightest and 20 being the darkest

Hair colour:
Unknown/random = 0,
Blond = 1,
Light brown = 2,
Dark brown = 3,
Red = 4,
Black = 5,
Grey = 6,
Bald = 7

Preferred foot:
Right only = 0,
Left only = 1,
Right preferred = 2,
Left preferred = 3,
Both = 4

Positions:
GOALKEEPER, DEFENDER_LEFT_SIDE, DEFENDER_RIGHT_SIDE, DEFENDER_CENTRAL, MIDFIELDER_LEFT_SIDE, MIDFIELDER_RIGHT_SIDE, MIDFIELDER_CENTRAL, ATTACKING_MIDFIELDER_LEFT_SIDE, ATTACKING_MIDFIELDER_RIGHT_SIDE, ATTACKING_MIDFIELDER_CENTRAL, ATTACKER_CENTRAL

I know ATW. I'm in too - look out for a regen with St. Albans City as his favourite club! ;) I'm always rubbish too!

I was just wondering what the extra added fields were.

There is indeed a list of them - it's the credits of the game :p

In terms of finding out who they are on the forum? Probably not gonna get a full list, unfortunately, because I can imagine it would take more time for someone to do than it would be worth (would love it if someone proves me wrong though)

@[b]Riz[/b] - I love you! That detailed regen option is amazing - I've been putting myself in as a future regen ever since the capability was introduced and the ability to actually give myself the correct ethnicity and hair colour is something that I've severely regretted not being able to do :thup:

The "DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" support in the EDT files was added for FM11. I believe the original feature request was made because Gudge's future regen always showed up as having hair and it just wasn't right that way :)

Riz, thanks a lot for the future regen info. I'm having one problem though, no matter which year I set as their date of birth, they show up at the start the of the game as 15 or 16 year olds. I followed your instructions, so I don't know what's wrong?

That's because they usually come up as regens (i.e. new youth players). They'll use the DoB that you have set but not the year.

Thanks, great info!

I have two questions though...
1. Is it possible to use unique ids in "nation", "favourite team", "country", "birth city" etc.?
2. Empty values for, let's say, position means random?

Yep. In most cases the birth year cannot be used as it does not match the age of the newgen, so only the day and month are used then.

Philip Sly
Nick Morgan
Ian Leather
Carl Francis
Marc Robinson
Rhys Guard
Adam Squire
Gareth Swattridge
David Cartledge

That's all of them from the Welsh Clubs. Like I said I haven't seen any of them mentioned before. So maybe they do, maybe they don't. But that's what comes up.

Those will most likely be teams with very few players so some are added at game start to make up the numbers.

I don't think you put the parts like 'skin tone' or 'favourite club' in as well. Just put the setting in.

Also, check the proper club name on the database. :thup:

It knows what fields to expect with that particular command.

Check here for clarification - [url]http://www.footballmanagerwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=EDT[/url]

There is an example of a normal regen command there. Apply the same principles to the above and you'll be good to go for it.
