[FM18] Return of the legends by David

Recommended Posts

Wallpaper.png

Here we go again! This year with another expanded version that will include even more legendary clubs and players. With this update you will have an opportunity to play and manage 3500 legends spread all over the world in their respective teams.

All of the major and many minor leagues are filled with clubs which possess their all-time greats and are under the guidance of some the managers , coaches and chairmans who ever graced the game.

Winning anything in this update is a success, as many clubs and national teams have some of the best talent that ever appeared in history of football. Italian, English, German, Spanish and French clubs are strongest competitors. And not just the major ones. There are teams from Holland, Belgium, Scotland, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, former Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary or from Portugal who have good chances of winning the Champions League as much as the teams who are coming from the stronger leagues. This is like a Football Manager hard mode!

The players who are coming from the oldest eras of football are older than the ones who are appeared later and therefore are closer to their peak and reaching their full potential.

And don’t worry the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo & Neymar still exist, but are a younger versions of themselves and are relocated to their parent clubs. Because of that your task as a manager is even more challenging as it’s up to you to develop them into world-class players they are today and if you succeed to make them a part of your squad.

This is a thrilling update which can bring any Football Manager fan into an ecstatic state of nostalgia with no doubt that they will enjoy the game even more and find it refreshing and challenging like never before. Also were done and facepack for almost all players, which will further give the game interesting.

Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2018 / editor data
Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

3. To install the facepack, move the folder "Legends facepack" to your graphics folder:
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2018 > graphics > facepacks
Create the "graphics" and "facepacks" folders if they don't exist.

IMPORTANT: When creating a new save-game, you have to be patient because the process of loading game database takes about 2 hours. The problem is due to the conversion of the database from the previous series and a lot of data, which is not possible to fix it.

Thank you for your work on this.  

I am having some trouble with the facepack not aligning correctly though.  The facepack is in the graphics/facepacks folder in My Documents.  I have the 18.3.0 database loaded with no other databases active.  I've cleared the cache and reloaded the skin, but the players have the wrong pics.  Is there something I'm missing?

He was deleted this year due to retiring. So I forget about that and didn't re-add him. I will next year.

It looks like you doing all correct, but probably there is some issue. I can't realise what is it.

Frem Boldklub are in danish Superliga and 2 division on same time. It must be a fault ? 

If you included some danish league updates with this databases it probably made some issues. I put Frem only in Superliga.

So whenever I try starting a game with this database, FM18 freezes up. I have version 16.3.0 and I don't have any other databases selected. Any idea on how I can solve this problem?

I actually figured out what happened. When I first started a save, it didn't freeze up, so when it did freeze up I thought it wasn't working. But one time I left it running after it froze up and It worked, and then I realized I just had to wait.

Is there any chance that you will add more Danish legends and legends from Danish clubs? BTW. The clearly best legendary database to date. Thanks :)

Thanks. I will try to add more next year. I must found some relevant sources for players attributes and abilities.

do I have to load all of the leagues for this to work? nice DB btw!

Thanks. It's not necessary, but for better experience you should load top 5 leagues + portuguese, dutch, brazilian and argentinian league, and other leagues set as view-only
