Is there a way to unlock sides that aren't visible or do they need to be created from scratch in the editor? Teams like Asian league clubs J-League, Japan national team and small islands national teams etc

To be able to manage a national senior or youth team, there needs to be at least 150 eligible players loaded in your save game, otherwise it's just not possible as you may not have enough players to choose from. If you are looking to manage a particular national team in a save game, you should load all players from that country before starting. This won't be necessary for the bigger nations, but the more obscure ones will need to be loaded in this way. It also depends on how many players there are from this particular country within the FM database. There are 1,229 Maltese players (so you should be able to manage the senior, U21 and U19 national teams), San Marino has 366 (so you won't be able to manage the U19s, but the seniors and U21 should be doable), while Andorra has 65 (so they're all out of the question).

To be able to manage clubs in divisions not enabled in the original game, you need to wait for modders like claassen to release files enabling these countries. In FM17, his files unlocked pretty much all the countries in the world, and I'm sure he'll do loads of leagues again this year Just be patient, it's boring and time-consuming to do a good job, but it's well worth the wait

Thanks for explaining in detail J-League and Japan would be good if someone does that in the future. What section of the forum should I keep an eye on?

Somebody's already released the files to enable the Japan league and also to populate with real players here earlier today...

Not sure how likely it is to get an answer to this since it's been half a year since anyone was in here but I'll give it a shot anyway... Could this change while mid-save? If i.e Andorra or a random Oceania country (as this is where I like to manage) do get 150+ players through regens, will they then "unlock", if you will, so you can manage them?

I got a push notification since you quoted me

The point of the regen system is for the numbers to remain somewhat constant between the start of the save game and later on during your career. So it'd be quite surprising if nations not selectable at the start become chooseable in the middle of a save game...

Fair enough, thanks a lot for the answer. The problem can be circumvented by ticking the add players to playable teams button when starting a career so it is doable without having to go in and manually add enough players yourself with the editor. So there's that at least.

Does anyone know how you can manage San Marino national side and what leagues I'd need to load.

When you load a new game, make sure you choose custom database and load all players from San Marino. I believe that should give you a large enough player database to manage the San Marino national team. I don't believe there are sufficient U21 San Marinese players in the FM database to allow users to manage them.

Logic tells me that, since San Marino is geographically within the Italian borders, the best league to load would be Italy.

If what you're asking for is after having started a save game, then you might not be able to get them as manageable as you can only add leagues but not divisions, nations or regions like you can when starting a new game.

Thanks for that. I'm not sure where I find the custom database tho without buying the editor.

San Marino is included in this pack so should help with the players needed but just loading all players of the nationality will work https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/51119/minuys-league-megapack

To make a simple custom database (non editor) when starting a new game see below.

Click the player count box on the top right when starting a new game.

From there you can pick and choose exactly how you want your game to look when starting. Obviously though the more players you load the slower the loading times will be.

@VP., I did nothing of the sort. I only provided a brief guide and you elaborated very well upon it

You maybe could have said that first!

I don't think you can but can try asking here https://fmmobile.net/2019/12/24/fm20-mobile-new-national-savefiles/#comments
