3D training facilities/academy facilities/ stadium improvements

Recommended Posts

After watching a video on real madrids and romas facilities on sky sports, it came to my attention that the one aspect of football manager that perhaps lacks detail is the facilities aspect of the game, ranging from very poor to excellent or state of the art. The ability to shape the clubs future in regard to stadium design, training facilities and academy facilities in more detail would allow the player to become more engaged with the club they are managing, and with any requests accepted to renovate existing facilities, you personally can select specific improvements to facilities in order to improve player progress (reach potential ability?). Much like wenger is credited in 'building the emirates', I believe there would be an added incentive to stay loyal to a club if you personally could witness visually the progress being made. I personally feel this would not be an expensive addition to the game, and with the 3D capabilities this game already possesses, there would be huge levels of excitement seeing your club build modern, training facilities which would have an impact on performance in games. For example, you could select individual items such as new training grounds and gym facilities which improve player morale and would incentivise players originally out of your realistic transfer targets to join. Obviously, this should have an impact on transfer budget and should only be available for the wealthiest bracket of clubs, but the idea of a budget being allocated for improving facilities with visual representation for me represents an exciting long term project within the football manager series.

I agree that FM needs to head in a more visually appealing direction. The game engine/graphics have steadily improved, but the rest of the game is glorified database hunting and barely-interactive email scrolling. It'd be cool to have some visual of training sessions where you can choose drills, press conferences where you and the media are shown in a room somewhere (the dialogue experience is a whole other thread...), a visual when talking to the owner, and more. Hell, I wouldn't mind if they at least just put up an image and a basic video/background thing like Civ has for its leaders.

Also in terms of building a legacy or training facilities you can have options such as combining the training facilities to have all teams on one site from U18s to First team or split them if you prefer. Also safe standing in stadium expansions etc.
