Recommended Posts

THE DATABASE IS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

THE DATABASE

http://rapidshare.com/files/454985625/Legends_Database_2011_-_Wonderkids_Edition.dbc

THE FACEPACK

http://rapidshare.com/files/454985624/AA.rar

Put the database in the following path:

C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\editor data

Extract the facepack in the following path

C:\Users\Tiziano\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\graphics\faces*

If there is no such folder, create it

DO NOT CHANGE THE FACEPACK FOLDER NAME (AA). IT has to bein the first one in your "faces" folder in order to load the correct pictures !

Later, I will upload the database and the facepack on megaupload and other websites. Have fun guys!

P.S. I had to set the future retirement (in 2020/2025, don't worry) from the national team to all the players cause the game makes them retire automatically on August 2011, don't know why :)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello guys.

I’m the guy who made the Legends Databases for football manager 2008, 2009 and 2010. Do you remember me ? :D

Unfortunately there won’t be a regular Legends Database this year. It would take me too much time and I’ve been really busy in the last 6 months (and will be for the next ones).

Anyway, I’m making a new, “lighter”, legends database called “Legends Database 2011: Wonderkids edition”. As the name suggests I will create 100 wonderkids in the game, who were famous players from the 90ees (and a few from the 80ees), and put them in the teams where they played when they were just hot prospects.

The Players

- All the players will be 17-19 years old, some of them will be stronger than others, but all of them have to reach their full potential.

- I will ONLY create players from the 90ees or 80ees.

- Their ca/pa and attributes will be as much realistic as possible. Just consider that their ca is somewhere among 120/150, so some players at the beginning of the game will be better than others, some players will be physically better, some other will have high mentality attributes, etc.

- All the created players will have HQ cut-out pictures.

- I’m trying to creating players from all around the world (when possible). I don’t want to focus on one particular country or team.

- Except for the players, the default database will not be edited.

- There won't be modern players, with some rare exceptions.

This is the list of the players. I’ll spoiler it, for those who don’t want to read it. In addition, there will 10 extra players, who will remain secret. Any suggestion/question is welcomed.

Deus

P.S. I’m working on the 11.3.0 default database, but the db should with all the patches.

P.P.S. May I ask you a favor ? Please, don't start complaining the players ("where is X ? " and "x"?, etc.). Be constructive :D

Hey Deus,

Good to see you back, really enjoyed your previous databases. Wish i had your patience to make one myself. Look forward to this one.

Cheers.

Gutted you're not doing a full database mate. I've gone back to FM10 cos I love the legends one so much. Dare I say it, probably more than than original SI database. Hope you'll be back for FM12

Ah, damn you Deus, you'll probably make me start a new game with this release - the only person who would be able to do so! :D

Love your previous work so great to see a you're working on a 'lite' version, which if you combine with the existing 11.3 database it should blend very nicely.

Questions:

I assume anyone already in the game (most as staff now) will be replaced to be a player again? I won't mention names in case anybody doesn't want to see the spoiler, but you'll know who I am referring to. While on this subject, will their previous achievements and history be erased (i.e. they will be created as brand new people)?

Will the players be tied to professional contracts or youth? Presumably if some players are 17yo then it's possible that it will be a youth contract?

Will most of the players be classed as home-grown from the beginning?

Lastly, would you allow for users to add additional players themselves assuming you keep the initial credit? I would personally love to add a younger Beckham, Neville brothers, Thierry Henry, Nistelrooy to boost longevity of a game with all my personal favourites. I wouldn't be uploading this - it would be for my own use only - but I wanted to make sure you didn't mind.

Actually, when replacing existing staff (like a manager who is a former player) i'll completely erase their achieviements, their favoured staff, etc. In their playing history there will only be one or two seasons. All the players will have a pro contract, but some of them, according to the teams where they'll start playing, will be a lot cheaper than others. And yes, most of the players will be classed as home-grown from the beginning of the game :)

Last but not least: of course you can, mate..no need to ask ;)

Will be waiting another 2 wks before I start a new game

Good to see you back..... Looking forward to it

Will this be compatible with other edited lists? I.e. if I have this and my own one will they play nicely or conflict? On a similar theme will these be created as NEW players or built using existing people in the game (i.e. some teams youth kid?)

Looks awesome though

Tried to PM you but you've exceeded your limit! :p

Was just wondering whether you needed any assistance at all? I have a spreadsheet that I've made with DOB, Place of birth, possible strengths and weaknesses etc for the majority of the players you've listed. You might already have this info, but if not let me know if I can help :)

I assume the 10 extra players will have at least 1 scotsman in them, cause I cant see Gordon Strachan, Gary McAllister or Ally McCoist there

Yeah, of course. There will be one of them, don't worry :) The same for Stoijkovic.

Deus, do you have a rough timescale of when it will be ready? Since I had to resort to dusting off my fm2010 to play the old legends database

it's a shame SI dont have a tool to convert an FM10 database to FM11. A lot of work went into that and it's a waste of time to have to do that every year. If it was possible to convert databases to the next version of FM then a legends database could grow more detail every year.

Deus,

I noted John Barnes makes your list... is it safe to assume he'll have Jamaican AND English nationality with no preference? I ask because I'd love to see what might have become of Jamaica with him in their side.

With a Legends db the main problems are UID's changing version to version, and new attributes/and details being added. One way around this however is if SI games kept the same UID for a player when they become coaches/managers in the next version and changed the free UID's every year ie if a newly created comp has a UID of 1394631411 the following year they could make the free UID start from 1395631411

Any changes and failures would be then easier to pick up/change

Wow, you created this fast, Deus! If all you have left are facepacks and assigning them to the UID then we really aren't far away from a release at all! :)

Good job :)

Excellent! Great news.

I have a fileserve account if you need any mirrored DL links. PM if this helps you at all.

P.S. I'm still running on 11.2.1, I will be updating my game to 11.3 but I can test whether the Legend wonderkids DB works on a previous version first.

Fantastic stuff, Deus.

Noticed the languages part isn't filled in for some players (not checked them all) - not a massive thing but thought I would mention it just in case.

Done it on purpose. Think at them like brand new players...Did an 18een Ginola know English ? Obviously not :D Probably i forgot the erase some players languages :(

Just noticed that Ally McCoist has been changed back to a player but is still 40+ years old.

Not sure if you're going to eventually patch the DB with additional changes / players, else we should all be aware that they need to change his DOB if they want him to be 18/19 :)

Thanks latimerinho, didn't notice that :) BTW it's easy to change his DOB with FMRTE

Thank you for this. I have been waiting ever since the game came out for this. I was so hooked on your last version.

I hope you have time to release a full version of it for 2012. But great job I really applaud you.

:D

Hi Deus84! I’m a huge fan of your work! Unfortunately, you couldn’t get any extra time to work on a full legends database for the FM2011 (which, personally, I was waiting to decide whether I would buy the FM2011. This way i guess i’ll continue playing my career game with your legends database for the FM2010). In any case, congratulations for in such a short time having made this wonderful “Legends Database 2011 - Wonderkids Edition” for the FM2011! Hope you have time to work on a legends database full project for the FM2012! Cheers! :thup:

You'll need to change the fake.inc file because Si don't have the rights to Kahn's name (alternatively, search for Jens Mustermann, as this was what the fake.inc file changes Kahn's name to, to avoid licensing issues).
