UPDATE 06/05/2023: Fixed issue with Lowland Development Knockout Cup West. Set Colts in the Lowland League to be permanent.

 

UPDATE 13/03/2023: Fixed issue with finals being played at home grounds.

 

UPDATE 12/03/2023; Added McLeman, Elginshire & Jim McPherson Cups to North Region Juniors. Fixed problem where Grill League Cup & South of Scotland League Cup didn't show winning team in history. Tested and working.

Brilliant as always James. Are the Development Leagues for youth teams also in there?

 

Thanks

Are the real SPFL fixtures still in use? I know that, on previous Scottish pyramid databases, it hasn't been possible to keep the real fixtures.

I'm working on that at the moment. Takes a bit of time with adding all the teams and comps though. Should be available in the next couple of weeks hopefully.

James, with Harmony Row becoming Giffnock Soccer Centre (Giffnock SC) next season, is it just a case of loading your fmf in the editor, and updating the club details, colours etc. and saving if I want to have them appear as GSC in game straight away?

 

https://www.barrheadnews.com/sport/23390830.giffnock-sc-football-club-play-west-scotland-league/ 

 

The Under 20s will change from Harmony Row to Giffnock SC too next season.

 

Shame to see Harmony Row go at that level, always had a great reputation in Glasgow. That said, GSC are the biggest youth football club in the country, and their new place is some setup. 

 

Thanks

Aye thats a shame to hear. Yeah just change the details, validate and should be good to go. I'll maybe update the database if i can to reflect that.

Got that sorted James, thanks. 

 

For the B teams, is there an easy way to make the fact they play in the Lowland League extend beyond the one season so it remains in place for the duration of a save?

 

Cheers

Yeah, if you go into the pre game editor, advanced rules, lowland league, stages and teams you'll find the b teams there. Remove the setting for end year date and re validate. That should do it. I'm going to do that anyway as I just saw they've been kept for at least next season

Hey folks, am I being dumb? Probably. I can't seem to use the file with 23.04, and when I try to run it on an older database I can't get lower than tier 5 😢

Hi James, 

 

Another name change in case you release an update with promotion/relegation at season end and before FM24. Rossvale from Division 1 are now going to be known as Caledonian Locomotives FC from season 23/24 onwards. The other Rossvale in Division 4 are not changing as far as I can tell as they are a breakaway from the original Division 1 side. 

 

Can find evidence on the Inverness Caley Thistle statement, as ICT had objected to the originally proposed name change which has been shelved and replaced with Caledonian Locomotives FC.

Thanks

Hi James, 

 

With the news that FM23 saves can be played on FM24, do you have any plans to release a league file that reflects the 23/24 leagues? I know it is a massive amount of work. Just wanted to check before I start a save to see me through to FM25.

 

As well as the name change above (Rossvale WoS Division 2 now Caledonian Locomotives FC), Giffnock Soccer Centre are now in instead of Harmony Row and in the East, Syngenta have folded with Linton Spurs joining the EoS league setup. 

 

Dalbeattie Star has moved back to the SoS league and Caledonian Braves reserves resigned/folded from that league. 

 

Montrose Roselea has moved from the North Region league to the Midland League.

 

Rangers B are not entering the Lowland League but I think Celtic B and Hearts B look invested for the long term. 

 

The rest is just promotions and relegations other than the WoS restructuring.

 

Totally understand if you don't have the time as it is a massive job. If you do, and need help with researching promotions/relegations and double checking who is in which league, I would happily help. 

 

Thanks for all the work on this either way. 

 

Cheers

 

Joe

Hi James, 

 

I meant to add, if I were to take your file as a base, would it mess the leagues up if I applied promotions and relegations and added Knightswood to the WoS Division 4?

 

Thanks

This database is fantastic! I took Linlithgow Rose from the sixth division to win the Champions League and SPL. Thank you for making it, it's been a delight on FM23. The only issue I found was the inability to improve the Youth Recruitment at all so it stayed at the level of tier six team despite being the biggest club in the Country. Not sure if it's fixable but I enjoyed the save all the same.

 

Thanks

How is it coming along mate? Heard the editor is a nightmare this year. Thanks for what you are doing, looking forward to another WoS long term save.
