Complete real life transfer data applied to top 35 nations, and more realistic transfer preferences for all 228 nations.

Intro:

The real life transfer market is extremely complex, and every nation has their own tendencies. These tendencies vary greatly.

For example, Northern Ireland may get their players mostly from within their own nation, or from Ireland, and never from South America.

Whereas Scotland may get more players from England than their own nation, and randomly in small numbers from all over the European continent.

This "transfer flow" for each nation is poorly represented in FM.

In the default database, there are 3 sections regarding transfers, yet England has nation preferences set for only 2 out of 228 nations, and the continent and region sections are completely empty.

This file changes that.

We have compiled huge amounts of research/data/charts/etc and combined our work, to create the largest and most realistic set of transfer preferences ever created for FM.

Features:

Increased number of transfers within the same nation, for all 228 nations

Reduced overall number of transfers


Reduced China's strength in buying too many good players


Removed every nation's ability to scout everywhere at any time


Applied data for incoming transfers and loans for past 2 decades(if possible) to top 35 nations


Top 35 Nations have individual transfer preferences applied for 65-70 nations


Top 35 Nations have individual transfer preferences applied for all 21 regions


Top 35 Nations have individual transfer preferences applied for all continents


Added age restrictions for a few nations (USA, China, Japan, Turkey, Ireland, Serbia, Switzerland)


Minor increase in Scotland/Ireland to encourage English transfers to those countries


Affiliations increased within the same nation


Affiliation tendencies applied to top 20 nations


Guides for a Realistic Setup:

Any nations not loaded as playable are hardly used for transfers. This means your save setup could be unrealistic.

For example, you want to manage in Portugal, and load England, Spain, Italy, and France also. This means Brazil is left out, the nation that Portugal most often gets players.

So, here is a list of basic guides by nation, to help you set up a decent save.

The most important nations are listed first, then gradually less important, followed by optional ones.

League Reputations

This is a new file, that attempts to complement the above file, and improve the game further.

It lowers the gap slightly between the top nations and the weak nations.

It uses information from various mods(such as Transfer Preferences, Youth Ratings) combined with statistics(such as attendances, viewers, population, etc)

Currently, the changes are minor, and effect only 1st divisions. Even a 1 or 2 difference can have big effect on many things, especially later on in saves.

So we are testing this and gradually changing.

Please report any feedback, so we can make this better!

Place in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\editor data folder. Start a new save. When selecting the database(before Advanced Setup), be sure to select the checkbox to enable the files.

Yeeeees get in!! Now just the increased injuries file then I’m ready to try this FM21 out.
Cannot wait!
Anyone else waiting on the injuries? It made my save on FM20 more difficult which is something I luck for. Still managed 2.5 seasons unbeaten in the league. But it added so much more realism

2,5 seasons unbeaten? I find the game way too easy (even with Smarter AI mod) but that level of ridiculousness is just boring. I bet you won UCL every year as well?

Thanks for making this, just a question: For the recommended loaded countries, would the "loaded but not manageable/playable" option be okay? I try to do that for any countries I don't fully load because of processing time.

I was so geared up to my run in the league I sacrificed myself in the champions league as I always had bad luck and never got anywhere past the 1/4’s.
So I never won it sadly.

Playable is always best for a better game world, as it gives you the most players and the leagues will be active in transfer market and player development and so on.
But view only is the 2nd best, yes. View only are going to be much less active in transfer market, also with less players.

Keep in mind you can set leagues to no detail to help also.

This is why I did the guides, to help you decide which to load or not. So look at the guide for the country you’ll manage in, and choose what you want to make playable. The unlisted nations will be much important for transfers, so you can make them view only and still have a good market.

Hi how do you set no detail please on the leagues? I only have playable/non playable?
Also what happens if you don't load the league but load "all players from the regions"

When you are into your save, click the FM-Symbol in the right corner, there you find "Detail Level". There you can select from none to full detail for all competitions.

Thanks I noticed you have half a star on your game speed?
What PC do you have and how is the speed of the game with all those leagues loaded?
Also how do you get to that "detail level"screen I've never seen that before

I wouldn't go after stars in general. Just simulate a few days with a lot of leagues, if it's too slow for you, then remove some leagues, if not, you are fine. On this thread you can compare your system to others, it might help you with that question. I already explained you where to find it?
