So this part is relevant to you @Footygamer:

 

Wouldn't it be pretty easy to make multiple dimensions acceptable for a certain category? We could just take it on like the facepack, so for stadium inside pictures it would be preferable to make them in 1200x720, but when the source image is small/low quality, you're allowed to submit them in 800x480. Because otherwise we're going to be left with either a lot of unnecessarily blurry backgrounds, or simply the smaller nations staying empty forever, as there aren't any images available of decent quality.

 

And it's not only the small small nations really, even for teams in the top division of Belgium or Poland or whatever, it's pretty hard to find good stadium pictures sometimes

There should be no issue allowing multiple size formats.

 

It's possible that we could restrict based on dimensions rather than size (other than a minimum size) and then the server downsizes them to one optimal for FM. This would allow people to upload high quality 2400x1440 or higher ones. This would be beneficial if we want to upgrade the size again in the future due to changes within FM or computing in general. However something like this would be pretty low down the todo list. Just thought i'd mention it.

@Qvordrup Ok, so I start saving the new updates with the following dimensions (Cities 1200x600 - Stadium 1200x720). I have a problem .. I have a package of images for Kosovo (cities & stadium) that I collected from various sources while looking for the images to make the 3d kits, so even with all the good will I don't know where to go to look for the images again of the stadiums, however, with patience, I can again search for images of the cities. Can I therefore send you the images of Kosovo (especially the stadiums) and ask you to make an exception for these images to be included in the megapack? Even the cities .. but in that case, if you think it appropriate, a new search would certainly be possible to do.

@Footygamer That sounds great 👍

 

Then i believe it would be very appropriate to change all the following upload restrictions to have two possible resolution (but same dimensions) in one go:

 

Persons: 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Stadiums backgrounds (outside): 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Stadiums inside: 1200x720 or 800x480

 

Competitions: 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Nations: 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Nation Team Fans: 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Continents: 1920x1080 or 1600x900

 

Team City: 1600x900 or 1200x675

As you can see the resolutions are right now a work in progress. So lets wait and see how this ends and then hopefully you will be able to upload any kosovo stadiums and city pictures your self 👍😀

Yeah would be great if you could implement that sometime 👍

Update 2022.07 is now live and available to download 😀

Thanks for this wonderful work 👍

 

But when I was extracting the latest file version 2022.07 update I noticed a few couldn't open or displaying header errors/ data errors. 

 

Is there something am not doing right or should I download the megapack again?

 

Thanks once again
