Big Companies took over the MLS and its their goal to make the League a household name. Can you help them achieve their goal? 

 

 

Hi, over the years ive seen some takes on a new MLS League structure from the FM Community. Most of them either stopped working after a while or just had a lot of bugs and stuff. Thats why im trying to give it a go.  If you want to help me youre welcome. The plan is to make the MLS become a true competitor to the European Leagues - in a somewhat natural way.

Note: start the save in 2021 by also loading the indonesian league (it gives you the option to start mid 2021)

I do not work with the computer whatsoever so I would say that I would be no help in helping you with the actual programming, BUT I can provide you with providing feedback on how it actually works because I am an American FM player. Just started my Lower-league MLS save and was bummed that I wasn't able to have any promotion, but I'll be giving this a try

thanks for trying. there are still some nasty bugs (for example: canadian league doesnt work). I should have a fully working file up by tomorrow night.  It took me some days to understand how creating a league works. At this point im thinking about starting a complete new file there a lot of things i missed in the beginning.

Yeah that makes sense. Quote reply to me whenever you're done, I'll be the first one (hopefully) to test it out and provide you some feedback. I've been looking for a good MLS pyramid system for a while now, so I'll be able to play this well.

Update 2021-05-19:

 

I did a complete Overhaul on the League. There are:

 

  • 4 Divions now (more coming)
  • Prize Money and Match Fixtures
  • Club Vision set
  • Transfer Window
  • Breaks mid Season
  • Relegation and Promotion (Playoffs coming)
  • (Cups coming) 3 new Cups added
  • (Graphics files in work)

 

I had to cut out the Domestic Cups. but theyre coming back soon. Its the first full functioning Version. 

 

I would also recommend to tick the “Add Players to playable Teams” option. So lower teams will get some players at the start. 

If you want to start your Season in 2021 just include the Indonasian League - theyll give you the option to start your save mid 2021.

Update 2021-05-20:

 

The goal here was to give a realistic amount of games per Season for the players. For Example; A Top Level Premier League Player plays around 40-50 Games per Season. I tried to simulate that number with the Cups. Also considering the CONCAF Champions League. 

 

  • some schedule/fixtures tweaks
  • new Cup added “AT&T Top Flight Cup” (Only for 1st & 2nd Division)
  • Facility and Youth tweaking for Clubs in 1st and 2nd Division
  • new Prize Money added 
  • Set the Squad Registration Rule

 

 

 

Note: If you want the best experience out of this consider starting your game in 2021 (not 2020). By using Indonasian League (alongsisde the MLS and your Leagues of choice) you can start your Save mid-2021.

2021-05-23; 22:30 ECT

 

 

  • Matches no longer interfere with international matches
  • Clubs invest  more in youtch academy
  • Awards added to the MLS
  • Schedule tweaks (4-6 matches per month)

 

Note: I really feel good about this version. The Transfers feel natural (start summer 2021) and the League does represents itself on the highest level (CONCAF CL).  American players around the world are willing to join the MLS now due to its increasing Reputation - as some high level south americans. It takes some Seaons to get really big players into the League. For Example: The LA Galaxy made a 120 M $ Move to snatch up Ansu Fati from Barcelona. Just one of the big transfer over time.

 

Only thing missing now is big Managers making the move to MLS. Im on it…

Hey pal,

 

I enjoy playing as New Mexico Utd (my U.S.A team) and this patch allows me to do that, plus the real bonus of potential promotions up the league ladder.

 

I have a question though, in relation to ‘home grown status’ your patch states ‘the matchday squad must have at least 10 players trained by the club.’ New Mexico Utd only formed in 2018. This year they have actually started an academy programme but prior to this they didn't. I haven't got to the league games proper yet as i am pending your role-out at the end of the week. Will this fact stop me from putting a team out? If this is the case, how does New Mexico Utd get away with it in real life? Many thanks for the work on this mod by the way. 

 

Regards,

 

Stuart

Hey Stuart,

 

the latest file (v2.0) should have the “home grown status rule” - throughout all US American Leagues removed. It caused some problems so i deleted it. Check if you got the latest one from May 24th. If theres anything still wrong feel free to reply 🙂 

 

To your second question: This League does not have the same rules as the MLS (and below) in real life. I tried to implement european standards into US Soccer.

 

This is how Mexico United's League rules should look like in the latest version. 

 

no “home grown” matchday rule

 

Thanks!

Great stuff. Perhaps I downloaded an earlier version?

 

Is it best to download the version at the top of the page? - or wait until the end of the week? Will there be major changes with the new tweek?

 

Thanks

 

P.S. As an aside, I was thinking about adding the New Mexico Utd academy players. They started this year and there are about 23 of them aged between 17-21.

I suppose I could do that in the pre-game editor and they should work with your mod too?

Hi @Junior_Kensh1                       

Really good project👍 regarding your Home Grown Rules and the situation with a club recently formed who it would be slightly unfair on if you werent aware you cant set the rule to be club specific too so you could exclude Mexico Utd for a set period the end year option allows this - so say 2024 enough time to build a youth academy .. I am only pointing this out just in case you wanted to try something like this …I have top leagues in Europe with stringent Home grown rules kicking in from 2022 so clubs have enough time to be able to comply and build squads/youth set up accordingly😉

You can already play with the file on the top - im not planning on doing major changes. just some “quality of life” changes (like match plan/fixtures). So gonna be changes regardless. Your file should work with mine - just dont forget to put them in the right team!

Hi !

 

About the “Home grown rule” - this should be already removed in the latest file. I guess i'm missing something cause someone else is having trouble with that too. In my Safe the rule is gone and it should be the same file i uploaded here. Gonna take a look into that thanks! 

 

I wish i could do more with Advanced Rules but for some reason the Editor cant simulate my Leagues so i have to work with the basic rules. 

 

thanks

 

Edit:

 

every league should have these rules

I’ve added all of the New Mexico Utd Academy into the game and it seems to work well along with your mod, so looking forward to starting the game proper tomorrow.

Nice work 🙂

 

Yeah i wouldnt waste much time and energy on the current mls mod, tbh there are a bit more changes coming than i expected.  There are still some schedule issues i really want to fix. For example some teams have to play up to 8 games on Dezember which is ridicilous imo.

 

heres what i got so far:

Just a bit of feedback - all seems to be working well so far. I’m playing as New Mexico Utd and just reached the January time (2021). Sitting top of the league and in one of the cup competitions still. Look forward to getting them promoted up a league or two.

Hi,

 

for unknown reasons Inter Miami, Nashville, Charlotte FC, Austin FC and NY Cosmos can only be played 1 (ingame) year after you started the game. You can always just start your file “unemployed” and simulate 1 year then join the club. 

 

When i got time i will take a 2nd look into that, but for now its not high on my priority list sry. 

 

Edit: If you start in 2021 its only inter miami and nashville. The others (Charlotte FC, Austin FC and NY Cosmos) are playable from the start. I guess its cause they are new formed club so the game needs to give them some key figures first - but im just guessing.

Hi there,

 

Just finished my first season and got New Mexico Utd promoted up to the FedEX League (Championship). 
 

No glaring issues with it and seems to play and operate well. The  two slight  issues I have are that the regens seems to be too highly rated and also there is too much player movement. Is there a way to tinker with these two attributes for my own personal game?

 

Thanks again, quite enjoyed playing a team that I can’t normally manage.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. Yeah the first 2 Season are going to have alot of transfers in the league cause all the big clubs have quite some money and all the small clubs need to fill up their squad. 

  • You can always change this trasnfer settings in the FM Editor (Nations > USA > Transfer > Transfer) 
  • regen ratings can be edited in Nations > USA > Youth intake / or use the in game editor

 

thanks!
