What's that? A new Wishlist Thread? What you would like to see in future FM versions.


Recommended Posts

Right now, what I think seriously needs improvement is manager relationships with:

- Staff: so I'm the manager, I've an injury crisis in the squad and I can't approach my Physio staff about this :confused: This goes both for Physio as for Coaches and AssMan.

- Agents: better interaction with agents about their players, would a player be interested signing for my club, what would he want;

- Federation and League: new interaction regarding both Federation and League, such as elections, referees;

- Interaction with other Managers: good / bad relations; UEFA Forum Manager;

Tutoring plays a key role in player development and can help "mould" young players personality and ppm's etc. At the moment certain "suitable" other players are the only potential tutors that you can use. I often offer coaching roles to players when they retire from playing, and lots of other coaches are ex-players, but at the moment all they can do is "coach". Why not introduce a "Mentoring" option whereby ex players now on the coaching staff can, like tutors, help with a young players personality and ppm's development? Mentoring is normally more of on ongoing relationship and somewhat more informal that tutoring, which tends to be for a fixed period and more formal/structured. For FM purposes, mentoring could be incorporated to give the same potential benefits of tutoring but it would take longer to achieve. Introducing such a mentoring capability for coaching staff in the game would give you more options to help mould young player development and, hopefully, is something that could be considered for future versions of the game.

Hey all... not sure how to even begin to search to see if this has been asked, but is it time to allow players to "take over" a club in the personality of the existing manager? Until now, you have to use your own name, a non-attached name from the football world, or register yourself as, e.g. "Jose Mourinho" as manager of Chelsea, and have the ridiculous situation where there's the "real" Jose is then appointed manager of one of your rival clubs. If I want to take over Chelsea as Mourinho, or to take over a club as a non-player already in the database, is that choice going to be available? It would add to the realism I think, while still allowing players full control. Call it "possession" :D

Also, are SI going to incorporate player use of social media more often, on the press side of things?

Not necessarily a wishlist as such but I'd like to see the ME improved whereby you could actually have a go at trying to get your team to sit deep, soak up pressure and get the counter working when up against bigger teams.

This is a stunningly good idea. The restrictions on Tutoring should also be loosened. In real life if I have an 'elder statesman' striker who is a perfect pro there is nothing stopping me from asking him to speak/work with my petulant 19 year old right winger.

I actually want the restriction & even the whole tutori dynamic tightened up. Just feels far too games & I really do doubt that a older senior team player will undertake 1 to 1 tutoring of another player, let alone some 15 year old in the youth squad.

Well, few things got to my notes while playing.

* More tactic slots

This is really needed to allow us facing many different formations, like in Seriea A where almost every team have different formation. And by coaching your players few more comes helpful when facing those various formations. At least five slots wood be really nice.

* More places in formation lines

So we can play with 6 players in the midfield or defense. That comes useful when you want to save result or got a red card. But more important, that give us more creative options in tactics making. For example, I want to play 4-4-2 but with 4 central midfielders, not 2 central and 2 wide. that gives space for wing backs to act on the flanks without canceling each other with wide midfielders. Just give us more rile life options for creating tactics. There is no such a restrictions in real life like we have now in FM tactic board.

* More precise player instructions

PI with a few more options but I primarily mean on combining PI and OI so we can instruct, for example, wing backs to close down just wide opposite players and not attacking midfielders or attackers, or central midfielder to close down just one opposite central midfielder and wide midfielder when in possession. This is also restriction in FM which doesn't exist in real life and is very useful.

* Improve AI

One thing is repeated every year, all of us can easily dominate Europe for eternity after few years (and that depending which team we play with). I want to see other clubs making wiser decisions, making squads strongers and more competitive. I want to see other managers more adoptive to opponents tactics when needed, it's not so interesting when we win Premiership with mediocre Swansea, Newcastle or Everton in first season, in third Champions League and then forever delivering every possible title every year. Things like that doesn't happened in real life.

I agree, I think it should be more fluid, and not restricted to a grid of set positions. By all means keep the grid, but allow positional fine tuning.

It already is fluid and has been that way for many years.

The positions you put players aren't fixed, think of them more like areas of the field to work in.

I'd like to be able to see a coach's assignments somewhere on his profile. Not the star rating of his staff roles, but his assignments in training. IE, I've got an old coach retiring for me, and I'd like to look at his profile to see which training assignments he's got, so that I know what to replace when he retires.

And when a coach is about to retire, I'd like to be able to hire his replacement some time before the retiree leaves, without being denied this due to that we're exceeding the maximum number of staff. At least, in these cases, we should be allowed to exceed the max number temporarily.

I agree the current tutoring is too simplistic. IRL senior players have definitely mentored/'had a word' with younger players (at least going by player autobigraphies/manager autobios/The Secret Footballer! I think Rio Ferdinand - CB - tried to talk Paul Pogba - CM - out of leaving United for example) but nothing as 'attributes targeted' as the FM Tutoring system.

On the other hand there are precious few other ways in game of improving a youth prospect's professionalism/determination/mental stats.

Ideally I'd like fewer restrictions but with less of a specific benefit, and then allow the manager and youth coaches greater interaction with players individually. Be able to call a talented but lowly rated professionalism youngster into your office and tell him he needs to grow up. I'd love to be able to cultivate a youth system that develops a general personality set. After years of drilling professionalism and hard work into the youth squad, you start to get a number of regens produced with high professionalism and work rate in every batch, even if their overall CA/PA is rubbish.

I suggested an idea of having senior players study for their national level coaching badges before they retired from playing & during that process to be part if the youth coaching team, they would then have a part-time link to the youth squad with any influence they might have being tied to that period of time.

I never got round to fleshing out the basic thinking of the idea, might be time to resurrect the idea & consider the finer details of how it would work before posting the full idea in here.

I'd like it to be more dynamic, like events where a youngster might 'latch on' to an older player and vice versa.

We could get coach reports saying "It appears that player X and player Y have established a good rapport" and "It appears youngster X is idolising player A, perhaps this would be a good time to get player A to solve youngster X's behaviour problems".

I wouldn't want it going too far into micro-management though, but something to point out how relationships between players are evolving would be a fantastic thing. I wouldn't mind seeing a page when you select a player that lists all the other players in the squad and points out their relationships - 'friends', 'idols', 'enemies', 'very influential figure for this person' etc. I know some of it is already there, but more to the fore might be interesting. It would, in theory, be more akin to man-management in reality, where we need to spot good or influential relationships to try and foster harmony.

"Misc. records", atleast notifications about them, like Alexis Sanchez - the first player to score a hattrick in Serie A, La Liga and Premier League.

Of course, this could be kinda hard to narrow down, but I'd like the idea of it thrown into the mix.

Say, first one to score a hattrick in X out of the currently top-10 ranked leagues (worldwide/Europe), first to score a goal in all the top-5 ranked leagues, top scorer in top 3 leagues etc. Reckon the coding's gonna be a b**ch, but (without specific knowledge) I'd like to think it might be plausible.

I've asked before for tutoring to turn into a primarily passive system, whereby younger players' mental attributes, including hidden attributes, gradually shift towards a value. That value would be determined by an average of the whole squad, with weighting for age, position, Leadership, reputation/squad status and other factors like captaincy or favored personnel status.

Here's an example, and it's going to be awkward to read, so I apologize. Let's take Arsenal's squad in June 2014, and Dan Crowley, who's a highly-rated young player. Crowley has Professionalism x. Over time, his Professionalism will change towards y/. y is the average Professionalism of the entire Arsenal team except Crowley, weighted by Leadership. Senior players are weighted more than youth or reserve team players. Because Crowley is a central midfielder/attacking midfielder, central midfielders and central attacking midfielders are weighted more heavily than defensive midfielders, wide midfielders or wide attacking midfielders. All midfielders are weighted more heavily than strikers, defenders or goalies. Mikel Arteta is weighted more heavily than other players because he's club captain; Per Mertesacker is vice captain and also receives a higher weighting, though lesser than Arteta (and because he's a defender and Arteta is a central midfielder, the difference between them will be greater still). Mesut Ozil also gets a higher weighting because of his extremely high reputation. Jack Wilshere does too because he's one of the club's favored personnel. Dan Crowley and Santi Cazorla don't get on so Santi gets a lesser weighting.

The active component of tutoring would be replaced with the option to choose an older player to teach one of his PPMs to a younger player, with perhaps a higher success rate or something. So a coach might not be able to teach Player X to hit free kicks with power, but Andrea Pirlo can, or something like that.

I guess I'd also accept tutoring continuing the way it is with a higher success rate. Right now it's more likely to cause friction than it is to really help your young players.

Chairman stats. One of the things I used to like about the old Champ Manager game is that you could see what type of Chairman was managing you. For example Jesus Gil have 1 for patience. (:lol:) I thought it was great because rather than just looking at the club, you are also looking at the people running the club as well. For me there needs to be more times when the board starts interfering and giving you unrealistic goals. In a way its masochistic - but I think there is some sort of challenge in trying to appease a Massimo Cellino type chairman. Look at Brentford as the current classic example. For me that doesn't happen enough on FM. (or maybe I'm just that good.)

The ability to gain nationality. Kinda like how players can naturalize in their new country. Managers should do the same too. So if you are Englishman managing in Brazil, you should be allowed to gain Brazilian nationality.

Would like to see an option to move teams at the end of a season when approached.

That way can finish the current season and start afresh with your new team. Hate being approached mid season when I really want to finish the current one.

Happens quite often in real life.

Like mentioned long time ago, I would like as an user to have the option to add own names to the database for newgens.

In many countries there is tooooo less variation if you play more then 3 years in it...

I don't understand why this is not possbile now... All other things could be eddited in the editor...

In the past there was the possibility to add newgens in an EDT-file. It would be a tiny thing to reuse this one for adding just first and second names to the game without having impact to the database.

More situation-based tactical options, i.e. corners/free kicks - with 10 mins to go, you're up 2-1, obviously you don't throw everybody up there, and likewise, if you're down 2-1 and entering stoppage time, even your goalie should attack the ball on your offensive corner.

Also the penalty taker thing from another thread, your DR's got 2 goals so far, you're up 3-0 with 15 mins to go, sure, let him have a go for a hat-trick. But if he's got his brace, but the game's tied 2-2 midway thru the 2nd half, of course you'd want your normal penalty taker up there.

All in all, more options to have set instructions beforehand come certain situations.

The training information is too limited. I want to see the player's gains through all the years. The current graphs are too ******. Make a table view with numbers and show fraction changes (+0.2, etc). All this is only visual changes, we supposedly already have that info, but it is in a very inconvenient form.

Agreed, I'd like a per year by year graph/attribute numbers. At the very least for players at your club, doesn't need to be for every player in the game.

I really like the post match analysis screen but never use it to improve my tactics. It Would be cool if you could ask your assistant on how he thinks you can improve on a certain area in the post match analysis screen. For example say your Central midfielder hasn't had any shots on target ask your assistant on how he thinks you could improve it.

You get me completely wrong...

I want to add many new names which can be used by the FM to name new persons. So like the most of all manager games so it.

Not wanted I to rename a random player.

Add new players/staff with the names you want into the database. Make them 1CA/1PA if you want so that they won't affect the game. As far as I know, possible names are drawn from the names of the people already in the database for that country/language.

Another one to go to the bugs section, since I didn't find the correct forum it goes as a wish for FM16: so, Javier Pastore was at the national squad for Copa America and I couldn't pick him for the pre-season stage. When he returned, he start complained about not being picked and threatned a riot :lol:

After big tournaments (ie World Cup, CL) and continued success from others, many managers adopt the playing style of the successful clubs in these competitions.

I would love to see the AI using my own saved tactic for their clubs. For example, if I won 3 consecutive CL with a strikerless formation, why wouldn't clubs try to emulate what I do?

Maybe this could work for managers with low tactical consistency?

This is just a workaround and not a satisfying feature...

I want the possibility in the add names like every other data. Or, the better way, an ongoing list which could be extended.

Thanks for your hint, yes, the FM uses names of persons in the database. But there are also collections/tables in this database which are holding names for newgens. And these are what I want to edit/extend/delete/whatever...

Honestly not that big deal but much impact on realism ans fun playing outside the big five....

Could be included as an "external" db file, such as newspaper names, comp names, etc.

1. Most of the time I have to click on the players on the pitch one by one with Ctrl to highlight them. Pls put a button somewhere to toggle all names of players on /off.

2. Make a more elevated view of 3d, that does show the entire pitch. Just coz you're using 3d should not mean you can't keep an eye on your defence when your team is attacking the other end.

As for 2) you just have to use zoom in or zoom out, if you press L you have zoom out and you'll see the all pitch

I'm aware of the zoom out/in capabilities. But even at the most zoomed out state, you won't still see your defence when attacking. Pressing L does absolutely nothing.

Well, I maximize zoom out all that I can and I can see the all pitch (maybe not my GK) just pressing L

Here's my full zoom out

SL_Benfica_FC_Porto_Campo_Completo.png

That is because the ball is in the middle of the park at that time. If the view could just stay that way at all times, great. But when the play moves to either end, the camera pans, and then you'd be seeing an unimportant something like stadium seats as opposed to your defence.

Just create another view that would remain like that, and not pan.

Hi guys,

I have a suggestion for in-game editor:

As you know we have 2 options for moving players one for moving our club and one for moving another club.

But one big missing thing is "moving with fee" option.I think there should be a option like "move to my club with fee".With this option the so called "cheat" become more realistic.

I am a Turkish FM/CM fan since CM4 and i am afraid the say that transfers in Turkish leagues never reflect realism in your games.

Even with the latest patches Fenerbahçe transfers awkward players.You can't transfer RVP,Nani for Fener or Sneijder for GS in Football Manager but in real life these clubs are capable of signing those players.

So in a situations like these i use in game editor but moving them free makes it "cheat".

Please consider this as i think it's not hard feature to add.

Hello, I'm an enthusiastic FM players from China mainland, please forgive my poor English first, and I have some suggestions for the future FM versions:

1. How about better 3D effects?

Now players often get through each other easily in 3D mode and defenders' positioning badly.

Could we make players really TOUCH each other instead of getting through and positioning more cleverly?

Could we also have better graphic quality? like stadiums and jerseys?

2. How about dynamic youth rating for each country? Some fans played FM for tens of seasons, but they still got very few young talented players.

3. In FM2013, seats also got reactions related to the performance of the match, sometimes clapping for goal, sometimes shaking heads, but in FM2015, this's gone.

It would take me ages to read the whole thread to check if this idea has been said but I would love the option to allow your assistant manager take charge of substitutes as sometimes I find it long and difficult. It would work in the same way as other staff responsibilities work. Thanks
