Hi, thanks for thread. I currently live at Pinxton (tier 8 I think, I've got Pinxton FC ID 10065338 but Although I have lots of nice photos, and the stadium, such as it is. The club is showing as Lower Level, but I get the COMING SOON pic, when I've actually got two town pics and one stadium.

Long  story short, how can I create a fictional city (its a village) and add my photos to the club. It's the one thing keeping me from searching for (not found yet) a way of creating a city ID, and s stadium ID. Is this because I'm lower league? Would I have to wait/cheat/pray they make it to the National League North before they'd be assigned a `proper ID' so I can drop the filves in later?

 

Thank you modders of this game, you are thr true heroes and even SI know that. Thanks in advance for any advice, or a link to English Leagues 1-10

 

I'm stuck, totally, and I've been doing this since the ARSE command was a thing. I've tried to set them with a stupidly high reputation and given them silly transfer budgets, purely in the hope they'll come up and I might have a club ID AND a stadium ID, to see if thats the reason.

 

Please some with far superior knowledge advise whether a new a new city, stadium and I could use my own at that stretch. 

Sorry for the convulted way of asking two oquestions but it's getting late zzz. Sorry to be a pain, I can change anything that's already there, but the City has no ID I doubt. And anyone who can point me in the diretion of an English league pyramid I'd be eternally grateful

 

Cheers

Well the city picture has to be named club id and are not as such linked to the city, but the club. So you dont have to change city id, just find any picture and name it club id (90065338). But it is not enough to just put the picture in the folder, you have to add a line to the config file as well for the game to pick up the graphics.

 

The club does not have a stadium in FM22 and therefore no stadium id exists.

 

If you have a good picture of Pinxton (real) I can add it to the pack if you like.

 

Giving the club huge transfer budget or/and high reputation will not help get them promoted. The lower leagues teams will never be promoted as the lower league is not part of the promotion/relegation ladder.

 

Hope that helps you  😀

Thank you. I've narrowed it down to to me not knowing how to add a line to the .xml file. I think I know where it is, it's in the folder of whatever I'm adding to the game. Makes total sense to go into the City, Pictures, Stadium Inside etc folderds and adding text.(ithe exact folder namesI need for the pics I've added. 

 

It might be coming back to me now, I've not editted since 2017). Thank you for the crash reminder course! 🙂 You're basically telling it to look for these images.

 

With IDs on, Pinxton and the club both have different IDs, so I'd do it in the Cities on as well as the stadium one. Does that sound right? Sort of remember having to do the same to add a different Pride Park background for something dark I could read the text on. That only needed C and P as both already existed.

 

You're a diamond, thank you.

Hi

It looks like I've totally forgotten I've already asked this question and just asked the same thing elsewhere on this site. With no stadium ID, is it basically impossible? I can edit the .xml so the `city' background works perfect. Attached are the two photos I want to use (both taken by me so no worries about sharing them etc.

I actually have a Holiday save of FM2020 which has a Premier League containing Alfreton, Matlock, Mickleover Sports, Belper Town, Buxton, so it CAN be done, with time, by editting reputation, cash facilities etc. It reached about 2030 before they'd ALL made it to the ingame pyramid structure. It just takes a while for them to appear. But anyway, I digress. Stadium ID's is where I'm stuck.

Is it possible to just insert just the stadiums and not the city background pics? Is it just a case of deleting the corresponding folders?

Yes it is impossible, unless you use the editor and add a stadium to the club.

Well…. What you are describing is all teams that are part of a league/leagues that is part of the promotion/relegation ladder by default. Pinxton is placed in a “league” called “lower league” in the default database, so unless you are using a custom database they will never be promoted.

Try just deleting the folders you don't want, and see if that works for you. Otherwise there is a guide in the forum on this topic.

Which I've got absolutely no knowledge of how to do. But at least I know where it can be done. Thanks for your help

When you browse through stadiums, for some reason it shows you a mix of backgrounds and insides. I don't know what it's intented to look like, but I think it would be better if they were all of the same format? So either all backgrounds or all insides.

Hello, is it possible to update Bayern Munich city view (seen in transfer and scouting screens). It´s quite a bad pic and would be great to see in good resolution (1920x1080)

The skin don't support backgrounds. Simple solution is to use another skin.

If you download and install the full torrent FM22 and the two lastest updates correct, then both the stadium and city picture will show 👍

just copy the config from the last update to the place where your current config is and “overwrite” the old one with the new one 👍

This is how backgrounds looks like using the default skin, nothing wrong. If you want the backgrounds to show in a different way you need to use another skin :

@Qvordrup I have a question, maybe silly but for safety and before downloading I would like to have confirmation. I would like to renew the images of the stadiums and cities, but I wanted to download the image pack from scratch, only I was hoping I could find some separate packs (city only) (stadiums only) (background only). 

is it possible to have this type of choice for the images of sortitoutsi or the only way is to download the entire 8gb pack? where inside can I find the images of stadiums, cities and backgrouns? thanks 😉

You can only download the entire pack. No option available to only download stadiums or city, but they are sorted in folders inside the pack 👍

Ok thank you, maybe if you deem it necessary add this question to "Frequently Asked Questions" in this page https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/style/17/google-earth-stadium-backgrounds .

I was wondering, the old image projects (city only) and (stadiums only) are finished, is this the one and only active sortitoutsi thread? because in the info to Flut skin 22 under download (city pics & stadium) there are other links, but I assume that now those projects are stopped and that this has now become the reference project.
