SS Kits
A full set of SS style default kits for Football Manager 2020 & 2021 (and Football Manager Touch 2020 & 2021) - fronts, backs & goalkeeper backs (the latter 2 are for the tactics screen and sundry other screens).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. Place the "Fidney's FM20 SS Style Default Kits v1" file into your user data directory, the default locations are as follows:-
WINDOWS
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 202x
MAC CATALINA
Users\USERNAME\Library\Application Support\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 202x\graphics

2. Right click and select "Extract Here"
If/when you see the message saying would you like to replace an existing file select "Yes to All" - this will ONLY over-write files with the same name in the destination. All other files will remain untouched.
NOTE - I believe that unzipping files does not work the same way on a Mac.
For Linux and Mac operating systems please ensure that you place the extracted files in the exact same locations as the file path in the archive, but please ensure that you do not delete any other files when doing so.


***CARE - do not change any of the extracted file paths or the SI "effect/texture" will appear over the kits instead of the SS style texture. Even a change as simple as a capital letter instead of a lower case letter will cause SI "effect/texture" to be superimposed over the kit.

If you are happy with your default kits having a Sports Interactive style effect (texture) as shown in the left hand side of my screenshot then skip instruction 3, and go straight to no. 4.

3. If you prefer your default kits to have the SS kit style effect (texture) as shown in the right hand side of my screenshot simply navigate to the following folder:
WINDOWS
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 202x\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default
MAC CATALINA
Users\USERNAME\Library\Application Support\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 202x\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default
Then rename the file called effect.png to effectALT.png and the file called effectALT1.png to effect.png
NOTE: This folder also contains versions of these effects without the neck shadow - if you want to use either of those just rename them to effect.png instead

4. If the SS style default kits don't show in your game then go into Preferences, turn off skin caching and reload your skin.

P.S. I do not have a Mac so instructions for Mac have been cobbled together from what I have found online and "borrowed" from other posts. If anything is incorrect, or inappropriately worded then I would be grateful if you would let me know so that I can correct. Thanks.

THESE SS STYLE DEFAULT KITS WORK IN BOTH FM2020 AND FM2021

EDIT - You can now see the SS Style kits in the editor if you like:

Great work as always @Fidney

In view of the fact that the Mac user data folder is no longer in the Documents folder this year, it may be worth amending the installation instructions to reflect this

I have followed the correct path but I for some reason don't have anything named this to change the files like you mention.

Users\YOUR NAME\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\graphics\pictures\kits\2d\outfield\front\default

All I have under 2d is my ss kits for clubs/nations. There is nothing labelled 2d\outfield\front\defult. Can someone please help or perhaps send me the files I am missing please?

Many thanks in advance

That path refers to the files in this download, you won't need anything else.

Hi,

I know this isn't exactly on topic of this kit pack, but I was hoping some of you guys could help.

I've made a custom kit for my team and I was trying to find out how to change the shirt image in the tactics menu but I can't seem to find anything apart from this. If anyone has any idea how it is done could they point me in the right direction? thanks!

Not colours is this correct?

Every kit has its own style now that I've downloaded it. What exactly do you mean?

I mean the default kits which haven't be made by the kit makers

all of them are are "white" not in their clubs colours....

I was under the impression that the default kits would change to the SS style default as we await the new kit packs for missing leagues...
Sorry If I am wrong

This is what I get when I download these files:

You must not have installed it correctly as they work perfectly fine in my game on 2 separate PC's

I done as the above suggested but some of the badges on the shirts are out of place, they are on the sleeves on some of the shirts. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Not seen that problem to be honest - the badges should be positioned as they show in the image at the top of this page. They are the actual badges (logos) from the game and not part of this pack.

Can you post a screen-cap so I can see the problem you are seeing?

Cheers

Does it add kits which are not implemented in the original game or is this just a style update?

Never seen that, let me have a mess around and see if I can work out what is going on.

Since last year the game uses the actual badges from the game itself and puts them on the shirt, which is really cool if it has the actual badges or if you use a badge pack as you see the real badge on default kits.

Are you using the default badges or do you use a badge pack? If so which one? Could you upload a "Normal" and a "Small" badge for one of the teams (and let me know which one) so I'm testing like for like.

OK, I've tested and I simply cannot replicate the issue.

I have tried the default logos, Schweigi's Standard Logos, and the Metallic logos, and they are all in the correct place:

I really don't know what the problem is. Are you using a custom skin or the default one?

Hi
Does anyone know how to fix this?

I fixed it. The path was wrong
The correct one is ".../Football Manager 2021/graphics/pictures/kits/2d.."

I use the default skin. Does it matter that I have the graphics folder on a different drive than the game?

Not really, but you may need to change your user data folder accordingly.

You can change the user folder through preferences in-game (but you have to type "location" in the search bar or you won't see it):

https://www.mediafire.com/convkey/2916/7dz7moppcmo89ft4g.jpg

As you can see, my user folder is on a removable hard drive. My save game and all the graphics I have downloaded (kits, badges, faces) are all on this drive.

Whatever I do, I cannot replicate the issue you are seeing, hence why I am wondering if you are using the default skin or a custom one.

I have already set up the save folder from the game. I do not know what is wrong, whatever I have tried I can not fix this. It seems like it's a game issue because I tried to reload the skin without the downloaded graphics and it still can't be fixed.

Yes, it does seem like it is a game issue - there are a few posts in the SI bugs forum about it, and in this one they acknowledge that it is a known problem.
