I started this project for myself because I never understood the values from the national youth rating in fm. So I decided to do some research and set new values which are important in my opinion.

I was really pleased with the result during long-term saves in FM19 and FM20.

The feedback for the file in FM20 was quite good and I enjoyed the work on it to try to make FM even more realistic (IMO)
Maybe some of you have as much fun as I do with the file!


What can you expect from the file:
Newly set National Youth Ratings
Some Game Importance adjustments
State of development adjusted according to DAC-List
The combination of the new settings will lead to:

Less newgens with worldclass talent
More worldwide diversification of talent
Easier to improve smaller nations where football is popular in longterm-saves
Fight about the biggest talents, so the AI tries to keep their talents at the club, because there are less of them


My ratings is based among other things:


HDI (Human Development Index)
Population of a Country
How popular football is in the country
Worldwide success national team
Continental success national team
Success U-natioal team
Which Confederation they are in (ex. UEFA, CONCACAF)
Value National Team
Record attendance National Team
Average league attendance from top league (as far as I could find them)

Please keep in mind that the whole rating system is very complex, so it's not really worth to discuss why Nation A has a much lower rating as Nation B. It took me about 300 hours of adjusting, testing, research and comparing. My goal was, replicate the current situation as good as possible, with some little speculation into the future, which I took from analyzing my personal excel-db-file.



Test results:

I made several longterm-saves, thanks to @maaartio and @jg1995 for running tests.

With default settings you will have in year 2035 compared to the start db: 300% more players with a CA160-169, 300% more players with a CA 170-179, 220% more players with a CA180-189, and 400% more players with a CA190-200.



With this file the numbers are much closer to the start db: 38% more CA160-169, 38% more CA170-179, 40% more CA180-189, 190-200 is equal, so there where only two "Messi's" in 15 years.

The ratings are very complex. it was a huge task to keep the balance also for low CA players aswell, so it doesn't matter on which level you play, the ratings are much more accurate IMO.

The numbers are still higher than default, you can bring this down further more with using the Injuries-File from @majesticeternity, this will slow down player development a bit.

thanks! brazil is an exception. They have IRL a never ending pool of talents. Worldwide they play from lower known leagues like malta, over kasachstan to india. So their quantity is extreme. But like I wrote in the description, it's not finished yet. I am currently running several tests with different values. It looks as there will be a update change soon!

I'm about to start a save with it now you, should add the ratings to the description particularly the Major nations but I think its a very fair judgement. Thanks for explaining though. Keep up the good work

Thanks Lezlie333

I thought about that, but very often, there will be questions about the values, because it's not only "the higher-the better". To avoid this, I won't publish the values. People can check them in the editor. If they have questions about some values, feel free to ask me anytime🙂

Update v.1.1

Massive overhaul to give you a much more realistic scenario in the future. I runned several longterm saves until 2035 on my own and with other testers. All results were very promising.
I also included the Game Importance-changes and other smaller changes in this file, instead of creating them separatly, because they need to be used at the same time for the best result.

Cheers

I'm not sure what you mean. If you download the file, you don't need to open it. I've just downloaded it, and I was given the choice to save it when I clicked the download button.

Yeah I'm not given that choice, just doesn't download and it tells me this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action, been having this error for over a month when trying to download certain files.


- Think I've fixed it now mate need to go into my E drive and actually find the downloads in my downloads folder, thanks for the help.

Hello,

first at all thanks for this amazing file!

My question is if it just works in the editor folder on its own? Or do i have to tick it when starting a new game? Because i can´t find it ingame.

Thanks for any help.

You'll need to place it directly (i.e. not in a sub-folder) in the editor data folder. When you start a career, it should be selected as one of the editor data files loaded, yes.
