I would like to create a new Legends Database editor to the site. This will allow people to collaborate on adding legends to the game such as Pele, Maradona, Roberto Baggio, George Best etc 

 

This will involve creating new people so will be developed alongside the adding missing people feature.

 

I would like to be able to add any of the following:

  • Individual Legends e.g. Maradona and Pele
  • Legendary Squads e.g. Arsenal 03/04 Invincibles, Man Utd 98/99 Treble Winners

 

Todo List

In order for this to happen the following changes need to be made.

 

  • Create a new site section similar to the Data Update but for the Legends Database, with its own separate downloads and submission process.

 

Questions that need answering

The following potential issues will need investigating and this feature will not be released unless they can be resolved:

 

  • We will need to create ID's for each person which are unique. These IDs will have to not clash with people added via the Data Update so that they can be used together.
  • There will likely be some arguments about what version of each player should be made e.g. Ronaldo at Man Utd or Real Madrid? I think we should allow the creation of an unlimited number of variations of each legend, so that people can choose which version they want.
  • When creating legendary squads I don't know what we should do with the existing squads e.g. with Arsenal's invincibles should we delete Arsenal's existing squad, release them or something else?
  • It might be worthwhile expanding this to allow the creation of any fantasy person/team rather than just legends that way people can use it to create their friends, classmates, colleagues or favourite marvel characters. We could use the same underlying code, while having the site hide “personal” creations away from the main legends database.

 

Feature Status Confirmed, but not started 

This feature will definitely be added but work has not started.

I assume that's what people want though? If in the real world we somehow bought all the best footballers ever to this day using a time machine then… the football world would be flooded with world class players.

 

I don't think you can add legends to the game without it being flooded with highly rated players.

Hello Friend!
First of all, sorry for grammar mistakes or misspelled words, but English is not our mother language and we don't have extensive use of it.

 

As I had already informed in the other topic (that was cancelled), I have been doing, for some years, a "Data update", with the greatest legendary players of all time.
Until then, to be used and played among my friends. We are a group of 10 people and we play FM, daily for 1hr, on LAN.
We had this idea, and using the game editor to making an OF, which is already well advanced. It currently has around 300 MB and contains over 3000 legendary players from clubs and national teams.
If it's in someone's interest, we can share this file with anyone who wants.
We also already have a large collection of face cut-outs from these legendary players. But as we aren't masters of design, some still need to make the cut-out. We can also share what already have, with anyone who wants to.
For information, in a next topic, I will answer your questions above, about how we are doing.

Questions that need answering

The following potential issues will need investigating and this feature will not be released unless they can be resolved:

 

  • We will need to create ID's for each person which are unique. These IDs will have to not clash with people added via the Data Update so that they can be used together.

1-Using old FM data bases (2006,07,08, etc), many legendary players were still active or were coaches/staff. Therefore, we use their original ID. For those that didn't really exist, we had to create a new ID.

 

  • There will likely be some arguments about what version of each player should be made e.g. Ronaldo at Man Utd or Real Madrid? I think we should allow the creation of an unlimited number of variations of each legend, so that people can choose which version they want.

2- Only ONE version of each legend was created and we placed it in the club that he most played for, or he most identified. For example, Zidane was a legend at Bordeaux, Juventus and Real Madrid, but in Real Madrid he is most idol, not least because he was also an idol as a coach. Thus, Zidane is initially at Real Madrid, in our OF.

 

  • When creating legendary squads I don't know what we should do with the existing squads e.g. with Arsenal's invincibles should we delete Arsenal's existing squad, release them or something else?

3- This was our most difficult and controversial point. First, ALL legendary players created were aged between 23 and 26 years old, depending on the century they played. For example, Sindelar (AUT), played in the years 1934 and we put it at 26 years old. Garrincha (BRA), played in 1962, we put it at 25 years old. Scirea (ITA), played in 1982, aged 24. And Zidane (FRA) in 2002, 23 years old.
For all other existing players in the club's current base, who are over 22 years old, we put them at age 22 or under. Also puting them in to the club he came from, in case he is not a legend of a specific club.

 

  • It might be worthwhile expanding this to allow the creation of any fantasy person/team rather than just legends that way people can use it to create their friends, classmates, colleagues or favourite marvel characters. We could use the same underlying code, while having the site hide “personal” creations away from the main legends database.

4-We do not create non-existent players in real life.

 

I hope it helped you.

Hey thanks for sharing how you've been working on this @AngeloCipo

Sure, my friend!

But it was not possible... as expected, error adding file too large...

 

As I couldn't, I'm adding some images from the editor with the OF:

I'm also adding here some legends cut-out faces that we've made for you to enjoy...

 

Note 2 points on these attached faces:

1- As we're not design masters, I know it's not perfect.

2- As with each new version of FM, the dimensions of the images change (example: the faces were already 150x150, 180x180, 200x200 and the current 250x250), due to this, we adopt the practice of keeping the images in their original dimensions, and we create a program that resizes all the images, to a specific size (depending on the FM version we are playing) and we share those resized images among ourselves.
