Recommended Posts

USAwkd.thumb.png.0812fd088b3cd24c66ae2eef7e5d92af.png
All NHL / NBA / NFL / MLB Franchises added to the USA

Banner - USA & CANADA.png

Couple of people asked for this but i lost all the info so had to make it from scratch again.

A totally new league system in the USA, part fantasy, part reality.  All Major sports franchises are now a Soccer club in a 7 tier system of 512 teams, as well as cuastom cups to mirror the Superbowl etc for each set of franchises teams. 

251064455_FootballManager202016_02_202020_48_15.png.8c6d14653bb56af502845c9775203982.png 426786682_FootballManager202016_02_202020_48_24.png.4094b0125f6f94868df05c21d8d888fb.png 
 

Teams have been created as close to location and club info as possible (along with real and custom rivals/derbies accross the nation).   Link to other nations have also been customised to allow for the boards and AI to get affliated links and grow as clubs. 

 


SETTING UP A GAME

1) Make sure you tick - 'add players to playable teams'  (for now rosters to be added time permitting)
2) Make sure you un-tick - 'Do not add Key Staff'
3) Using the advanced rules to add all Canadian, Mexican and US players is advised

NATION INFO

Season dates - Are inline with the European League. (10th Aug - 15th May)

Season End Date - 30th June

Season rules - as per England - No draft, No Designated player etc.
Canadian and Mexican Players are no longer classed as Foreign in USA
Both have been slightly boosted in youth rating/nation terms.

Affiliation links and transfer options increased with UK & South America

TEAM INFO

All created teams should have the correct 

Name - City - Stadium - Nicknames - Team Colours - Kits - Logos - Owners - Managers - General Managers (DOF) - Derbies - Rivals

All teams are Main Squad & u23's.

DIVISION LAYOUT / REP / MONEY

Leagues.thumb.PNG.2b7e3587dca0a9623dcd01c902279d8e.PNG

B and II teams have been removed.

Stanley Cup - NHL Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
World Series - MLB Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
NBA Finals - NBA Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
US Open CUP - MLS Teams only Groups into a Knockout style cup

Still to be made

Just finishing off the remaining cups and then the first beta should be up for testing sometime tommorow.  I will need to know if there are any fixture clashes with the National Team etc during play testing. 

The growth of the league is pretty steady as far as i can tell, but please let me know if the Money & players go a bit OTT to fast for some.  Thee image below is the players that will move in 2022 to the falcons who were in the MLS after 2 promotions and Atlanta United  who were reigning champions.   (Much thanks to @MWE for helping gage the rate of growth)

  42638352_FootballManager202025_01_202017_50_20.thumb.png.6827df2d98cfabdeff18a9700bcbdec4.png 156231908_FootballManager202025_01_202018_54_41.thumb.png.3cc52f8cd08ebdcba9ada3e9f62c97f2.png

Once the cups are done, its should be all good to go.

TO BE MADE FOLLOWING INITIAL RELEASE (ONGOING AS AND WHEN)

Remaining Managers to be made

Team Derbies / Rivals / Icons and Legends to be added, as well as affiliations with some smaller local sides etc.

Some (correct named) coaching and medical staff for all created teams to be made

Current player rosters from the NFL / NHL / NBA / MLB teams.  (Some stats will be random, some static.  OBJ will always have "tries tricks/flair" etc) and due to very small NBA / NHL rosters some legends will be added as newgens to help fill their squad.

Creating free agents / managers / players / referees to help fill out the nation.

With NFL teams, how do you place players on positions, or is it at random? Just curious

Toying with a couple of ideas so positions lineup.  The pitch will be split into 2, the defence linemen & positions making the defence, the forwards the offence, and then the PPMs/position by style of the player.

Position NFL
   
Ad Forward Wide Reciever
Deep Lying Playmaker Tight End
Box to Box Running Back
Ball Winning Mid Centre
Centre Mid Guard
   
Regista Pocket QB
Roaming Playmaker Scramble QB
Anchor Safety
   
Wing Back Tackle
   
Centre Back Line Backer
Full Back Corner Back
   
Keeper Kicker
Sweeper Keepr Punt Return

 

if that make sense.

NHL / MLB /  NBA have less positionals to play with but will try the same thing.  Point guard will be the playmaker, 2 point shooter will be a midfield with trys long shots etc.

Nice, luckily once i start tagging the info together, you have some better players to start with, and Tampa will be linked to Man U through the owners so you can prob bag a loan or two from the youth team

You will still generate fixtures and money.  you jsut dont own a stadium.   The board can or should build one at somepoint if you have the cash.   

 

Lucky for you i'm just holidaying a test save.   The board built Temecula FC Stadium in 2022.

k. There are 128 extinct teams in the US/Canada with no leagues... Thinking off adding them into a semi-pro divison just above the academy level? too much? bit of variety?

Bit of variety will it slowdown game speed down too much though because it will be fun to manage the fort Lauderdale strikers even if its just with the us loaded with a large database

Depends on your laptop.  i've benched it for now so it works with the canada DLC.   might re-visit the idea at a later date.

Still to add players, and pad out some staff but that will be an ongoing thing.  I'll also, be adding more Club legends and Icons, as well as linking liked/disliked players and teams as i go.   

Purely to expand the world a little bit.

I'm have very limited knowledge in the US outside of NFL, so if you want a Club Legend or Rivalry adding just for your save, let me know and i'll add it in.

I'll also, be adding some club links and affiliates for the owners, (ie Tampa Bay Buccs & Man United, Liverpool & Red Sox, Fulham & Jacksonville).

Hey man.

Just a little error. Your config file in 000 - USA\NFL\logos has a spelling error in San Francisco (the file has San Fransisco). Just a heads up!

My team has 9 players... this should be fun! Again, incredible effort on creating all of this man.

Canada (there is an extended version available on here) & Mexico as players as counted as HG.

Eng & Scot & Brazil have an increased chance for affliated teams... and sometimes Argentina. 

 

so prob those lot for now.   If you have any suggestions or ideas guys, throw them up.  The squad rules need tweaking etc, and if you end up with 150mil at season 2, or something i'd like to reign that in.. lol

The Prize Money (Win/Draw) for Premier League games should be bumped up by a factor of 1.21.  The declining Prize Money ratio for Level 1 compared to Levels 1-4 are out of sync, since the Premier League (Tier 1) only play 38 games and Tiers 2-4 play 46 games.

As it is now, teams at Level 2 (US Championship) will earn more prize money overall than teams in the Premier League because of the extra 8 games they play during the season.

I'd recommend for the Premier League:

182k for each Win (instead of 150k)    (46/38 * 150)

151k for each Draw (instead of 125k)  (46/38 * 125)

I can try. Generally, there is only 1 per team so it shouldn't be too difficult.
