Is there any way to create a state date in the distant future, such as in 2025 or 2030?

 

I'm messing around with the World Cup 2026 format but simming that far takes nearly an hour each time, which makes testing much more difficult.

you can adapt that file

 open it in the  FM21 editor  then save and verify   then you can use in FM21 and have a 10 year start up range

 

ideal for simming to a date several years in future to test a file etc but not to start a save IMO as you wont have had any transfers happening and a player's stats will look like he has played one long season so not realistic but a great tool to check a comp like you want to

Thanks mate, appreciate redirecting me to this thread, I wasnt aware of it nor the file.

I will run some tests later this week, but I still question if by using this file to start, for example, on XX july 2021 (meaning 21-22 season is set to begin) + using an DB update for squads and promotions (already in hand, tested and validated before using customo start files) I'd still be able to start 21-22 with the fresh transfers, squads and teams in correct divisions as of now in real life. Or by using this file here the game will still sim the 2020-21 as well, making it different from what has been expected by using the updates?

Sorry if it doesnt make sense somehow, Im more that willing to discuss it if you can. Thanks once again!

yes you should be good

 

however clubs especially the elites will still be able to buy more players so you may need to either disable first transfer window when setting up game

or have a transfer ban in place

Great point, makes sense. I will try that and confirm here if everything went through so others can understand, if needed.

 

Once again, thank you!

@kingrobbo  I was able to ajust the files, validated them on editor and they became available for FM21, as instructed.

 

Although, even with this setup unfortunately Im still struggling to get the game to understand and begin 21-22 season with the correct teams. In other words, still unable to start a save, for instance, with Norwich (or Watford/Brentford in Premier League IRL as 21-22). Same with other leagues and countries as well. 

 

As below, tried a save starting on 21/06/21 and 05/07/21 (custom file dates available). For the first date (21/06), the season hasnt been reseted yet, the game just ran a random season (20-21) and its a gamble to see if the newly promoted teams can survive through 20-21, not realistic.

 

As for the 05/07/21 test, the season does start fresh as expected for 21-22, but again, seems like the game simmed the year before it and the gamble continues, teams like Norwich survived 20-21, but others got promoted unrealistically (Blackburn, Sheffield).

 

I feel like Im missing a piece of this puzzle setup to make it possible, for instance, to begin a save in june/july 21-22 season with the current teams in their correct divisions, as in real life.

This is just a Start date mod

 

You need a mod/s for real results in various leagues to run alongside to get the right teams for 21-22 season

 

even with the real results you may not get the right play off winners eg Brentford so when I want to do a save like this[ I do not anymore] I use a start at a date at end of the championship season and use FMRTE to manipulate the play offs  to get eg Brentford to win play off

Got it, I read more about real results and understood how this works.

 

Unfortunately wont be something to play with, but the start date mod helped me a lot, thanks.
