Advanced holiday options!

Recommended Posts

I have ticked the "Have fewer stops in play by increasing the duration of each processing break"-box in the interface-preferences.

However, I still think the game moves waaay to slowly between matches. Sometimes the processing stops without even bringing me any news! My space-button is almost worn out from escaping from all these non-essential news.

I really, really miss a function where you could select/deselect which news or info is worth a stop in the processing. If i choose to go on holiday between matches I miss out on man management-related conversations and such which again impacts the moral and general happiness of the squad. 

So, this can easily be solved by including a kind of filter where you tick of which news is worth stopping for. Maybe the most easy way to implement it would be to add more options to the "go on holiday"-function. Or an "advanced"-option. By doing this, players can choose to play the game faster - but not miss out on the most essential news they consider to be important for their type of management.

Suggestions, not limited to, but at least:

Return from holiday when:
__: A player want to have a conversation
__: Press conference
__: Select treatment to injured player
__: International friendly instructions

 

I hope a new patch can include this kind of function.

It's a good idea but it's not realistic because in real life if a manager goes on holiday he is not going to come back just to speak to a player or just to have a press conference etc

How realistic is it for a manager to be able to take holiday for years and years? 
Or never attend any press conferences himself?
Still a function.

I agree, it would be nice to have some added options to take into account important events in the game that pop up from time to time that you would like to specifically address e.g. staff hires, transfers, losing streaks, etc..

My solution to Holiday mode is to call it something else or scrap it. 

I never holiday from the end of one season and the beginning of the next, which takes me at least 7+ hours as I'm managing, but at the end of the transfer window, business is done, training is sorted and every player is working on something, then between games I holiday to the day before the game, do the press, study my opposition and play the game.

So I spend roughly 2500+ hours per year on this game every year and I need to speed it up at times as I like to have roughly 40 different saves. If I play day by day in game waiting for something to happen I will be lucky to get to 5 saves without smashing my laptop off the wall from the tedious repetition. A lot of this game is in our own heads and if we don't have something to quicken the game up and day dream or do other things then truly all is lost. 

Please for the love of football, sort it out SI

the holiday mode really needs more options such as being able to select which young players, or new transfers you want to bed in, and have them being brought on as subs or used in cup matches. it definitely needs to alert you on important questions too, because there's times i've been sacked for not dealing with things, when sometimes all i want to handle are the transfers and then let the game run for an hour whilst i'm busy with real life. at present, the 'use current tactics' and 'use current team' options are just too basic. i would really like to see this section evolved. we all have busy lives now and this is an area a lot of us use, please make it better.... especially with the use of selecting/blooding in, the kids or new signings.
