It's a fantastic job. I'll use it.
The game uses yellow tools in winter.
Do you have any thoughts on working on the EPL winter official ball? (Yellow )

I'm still looking into how to automatically select the winter ball, otherwise it means releasing two sets of balls and having to manually swap sets during the Winter months.

You're very keen on balls that are used for one match in a season Jeff. Worry no more, the Community Shield ball is in the updated set today.

The balls are working fine in such competitions. Double check your installation and ensure The balls folder is in your "Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/graphics/pictures folder and that you DELETE the old "balls" folder when installing any updates.

You must replace "Tercera" in the place "la liga 2" like that :

<record from="tercera" to="graphics/pictures/balls/69/default"/>
<record from="tercera" to="graphics/pictures/balls/70/default"/>
<record from="tercera" to="graphics/pictures/balls/71/default"/>
<record from="tercera" to="graphics/pictures/balls/72/default"/>

and add another line to put the spain segunda ball like that :

<record from="la liga 2" to="graphics/pictures/balls/68/default"/>

because that line isn't in the XML and if you choose a Segunda team from Spain doesn't show the ball of Spain segunda division...

Cheers...

English EFL Cup, EFL Trophy and National League balls are outdated. You should restore and add the default ones already in the game.

The simple answer is, if you don't like it, delete it. It all depends if a decent qualiy image of a ball is available and it wasn't the case with the balls you quoted. The thing that pisses off creators are those that demand perfection, especially when they're not charging for their work. I don't have a problem answering queries, it's not about what people say but how they say it. For the record, the "default" ball is the one that appeared from day one of FM21 and shows in every game.

I don't understand this grudge.
My previous post was not a criticism of your work. I just pointed out that the aforementioned balls in your pack are outdated and have been replaced by new models or new manufacturers in real life. Just for a matter of realism, which I guess is an appreciated feature in a simulation game. However, I'm really struggle to see where I asked for "perfection" in my previous post.
I thought that inputs or feedbacks would be well accepted, but maybe I was wrong. I apologize for that.

P.S. For the record, the default balls I requested are not used in every match. They are already in the game because they appear in the relevant licensed competition to which they belong. However, the balls in your pack replace the correct ones already in the game. That's it. It was just a note for you before, not a demand for perfection.

Hi, this is excellent, is there any way of adding the SPFL ball. I've added a link below as its probably the best way of showcasing all sides of the ball for you?

SPFL Ball (apologies if this isn't allowed)

Thanks in advance

Will update in next pack.

Not a grudge, it was about the matter of fact intonation perceived. Like I'd been called to the head teacher's office for a telling off and what I need to do to rectify my failings. Not asking for perfection ? So who was this comment you made on another post aimed at ? "English Northern Premier League ball (IDs: 5103716 - 90081108 - 90081109). Please bear in mind that the "Chryso" logo should appear only on the front of the ball, but not on the back". NONE of balls in the pack are wholly accurate, due to how FM handles the animation, so it's a compromise, regardless of the ball graphics. The whole concept was about giving some variation to the leagues/competitions played, despite the limitations. Regardless, I take all comments and requests on board, if they have a polite and respectful tone.

I think you perceived a completely different and false tone in my posts, whose intention was not to accuse you of any possible poor effort put in this ballpack, but just to improve it with some suggestions. Even in the request I made before, I provided you an high quality picture of the ball and I limited myself to point out a particular graphic aspect of it in order to help you in making the ball and having a better look in game.
I've never been disrespectful or unpolite previously, so I'm still scratching my head to understand where I was such rude and why I deserve such animosity.
Feel free to ignore any request or any unwanted feedback I already provided.

I've actually given it a go and came up with a not bad effort, which can be used in USL Chmp, 1 and 2 division.

I added these lines on the config file and it seems to all work ok 'in-game.'

<!-- USA - USL -->
<record from="usl" to="graphics/pictures/balls/43/default"/>
<record from="usl" to="graphics/pictures/balls/20033731/default"/>

Is there a possibility to use them all, like randomly, in one competition? I am playing the league, that is NOT mentioned in the config file. So, how can I use all these pretty balls in my league?

No, you can't use them all in one competition as every config reference is unique to that league or competiotion. What league are you playing ?

The Israeli one. What will be if I write in config two balls to the same competition? Won't it randomize between those 2 balls?

I'll have a look. In answer to your question, no it won't randomise, the config file will pick the first one it finds, in alphabetical or numerical order.
