Evening All,

Hope you can help, does anyone know if it is possible to change a players ethnicity on FM21?

The reason i ask is i am using Zealands regen face pack which auto assigns a ethnicity to a certain player based on various criteria, only this time is is incorrect. My new regen star striker is coming through with a black created face and in game he is white, no big deal but something bugging me a little.

I know i could possibly work around this by finding a suitable face and amending this in the config file to something suitable, but keen to understand if there is a more permanent solution to this through the editor as finding it hard to locate a newgen/ regen player through the editor so can only assume i am doing something wrong, not loading a database perhaps? If anyone has any advice that would be fantastic

Many thanks for your help.

Matt

I am not having a chance to start a save but this does annoy me and I have in the past used FMRTE to change the game generated skin/hair colour to be more realistic, but this is just superficial

asr that doesnt resolve the generated image I hope there is a resolution to this out there and if you or any user is aware of it please share your finding here
cheers

I just make a note of the player id and then use another face that is either close to what I am looking for, usually from a league I am not going to use. Probably best to not pick a well known face and also roughly the same age as the newgen.

Hello,

I have a similar issue bothering me: new players created by the game, from Argentina, specially, Chile and Paraguay are not representing at all the demographics of that region. Argentina for example generates an insane number of black players, which is unreal. Without a proper answer from SI on the forums, here is what I managed to minimize this bug:

- I downloaded the "NewGAN Facepack v2.2" and followed the installation instructions.

- using the search tool and the "view" from the downloaded package I look for regens in the game with Argentinian nationality.

- Control A + Control P to export the RTF file, that with this script will be named "Untitled".

- Now, If I just apply the NewGan app on the Untitled rtf file the faces will be applied following the guidelines of the skin color present in the rtf file. An example:
| 2000442222| ARG | | Nahuel Viera | 1 | 5 | 1 |

The last column represents the skin tone I believe. I am not sure of all the values and tones related from 1 to 10 but so far I found the following:

10 I use for players from China, Korea and Japan. Not perfect but better than nothing.
4 for the middle eastern players. Sometimes 3
5 for south east Asia
9, 6, 7, 8 for Black African players
2,1,0 Caucasian players - 0 very light skin tone, I use for North Europe usually.

- So, opening the rtf file and spotting Argentinian players with any number representing a black skin tone using Notepad++ will save time.
- I then change the values of the last column for the specific players and EXPORT the file with a different name, for instance UntitledARG.
- I can do the same for any nation I want to generate faces with NewGan as close as possible from reality.

- When you apply the script a CONFIG file will be generated in the new faces folder. You can then open UntitledARG copy the mapping code of the players and paste it in the CONFIG file used by the game!

I am sorry if it sounds very confusing but It is really simple!!!!

Doing that, I avoid replacing faces from the same players every time a new youth intake takes place and I can prevent absurdities like 7 Argentinian born black regens in an Argentinian roster.

PS: THE ABOVE WILL NOT CHANGE THE SKIN TONE IN THE MATCH ENGINE!!!!

I hope it helps and if you have any questions I can try to explain what I did better 🙂
