Welcome to the Challenges, Sign Ups and Experiments forum

This is a fairly new forum that was created early in 2007 as the interest in three main types of threads grew:

  • Challenges – where people play FM with a particular aim and to a specific set of rules

  • Sign Ups – where people 'sign up' to become part of an interactive FM story or experiment

  • Experiments – where people test out how the game handles certain situations and report on their findings

There's not really any specific rules for this forum but if you are new to the forum I do suggest you have a look through these guides before starting anything new:

  • Ideas Thread – a place to go before starting thread to get helpful advice or to see how much interest there may be in your idea

If you are looking for something specific, or just want to see an index of what is contained in this forum, here's a few lists of specific types of threads:

Finally, here's a few useful threads that you may want to use while using this forum:

  • Sign-Up HQ - all the information you could possibly need for the sign-ups.

  • Mod Requests – a place for any forum related requests that need the attention of the moderator, alternatively you could use the PM function

  • CSE Social Group – a social group for members of this forum to discuss anything they like

Right, apologies for bumping this thread but I have a question. I want to try and complete all challenges(Razer's, dafuge's, LLR's, Gundo's, AB's, rancer's and whoever does the youth challenge thread) all in one save. I just wanted to know whether it would be possibly due to the rules each challenge has. Having had a quick look it seems that Rzaer's, AB's, LLR's all interlock well. I'm not sure about the youth challenge one, Gundo's, rancer's and dafuge's. If it's not too much trouble would any of you be able to definitely say whether it's possible, thanks.

In my trials to make the game as challenging as possible, I've stumbled across a way of playing the game that I don't think anyone has ever tried before. You can call it the "Put Your Feet Up" challenge. I do it as a lower league Journeyman career bumbling around the lower reaches of various nations but in theory it could be attempted with Real Madrid.

Day One, before you click anything at all go to the staff screen and make sure you have a Director of Football, Head of Youth Development and Assistant Manager. If you don't, appoint them from the top of the list in the staff search screen without rating their qualities. Then set Staff Responsibilities to ensure those guys cover ALL of them, from hiring and firing, contracts, to talks, training and tactics. They will do ALL the work. You can go on holiday or hang around to click continue and passively observe the matches.

It's wonderfully masochistic because of course they don't bring in the players you would, don't set the tactics you would or pick the players you would. But, will they be more or less successful than you would? For those who don't enjoy winning everything too easily, it's an intriguing departure.

 

I'm just waiting for a couple more lower league files to be available - I'll have England to level 10, Scotland, Wales, Norn Ireland and Gibraltar, and I'll be reporting on my new campaign in the anarchic Careers Update forum.

@phnompenhandy I've done this before when testing database expansions to make sure they're stable long term, i leave it running over night and whilst at work.  Always really interesting to have a look around at what's happened in the game world

 Ah no, it isn't a simple 'holiday save' - it's full-on active neglect!  ;-)

Anyway, right now I'm waiting for a Level 10 English file to fire up my long-term campaign, which will be a Head Coach Youth Academy Journeyman career. Might occasionally "put my feet up". Unlikely to ever get out of level 10 around the world!
