Update - 24.2

Enhanced colour updates to all balls.

Additional balls added

 

Update - 24.1

Winter balls updated for applicable leagues.

Cup competitions with a league then knockout phase may not work due to the coding. I have added the ones that I could think of e.g. Champions League, Europa League, World Cup etc.

If there are any issues, anything missing, requests etc. let me know.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Over 80+ 3D Match Balls for FM24.

The ball will change depending on what competition you are playing in.

 

How to Install

Extract the ‘balls’ zip file. 

Then move the ‘balls’ folder to Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2024\graphics\pictures - (create any folders if you don't have them)

It is important that the ‘config’ file is in the ‘balls’ folder.

 

If anyone has any requests or feedback on the balls, let me know.

 

I have not tested every ball just so you are aware.

 

Credit to Bartdude as I used his previous ‘3D Balls Match Pack’ as inspiration to create these.

There's a couple of balls that I'm not keen on. The EPL is too blocky, it doesn't make for a good rolling ball. The FA Cup ball does not present well at all. I've redone both, Summer and Winter. Take your pick.

 

thanks bart

Whats the right line for the winterball?

Firstly I try to find an image with even shading, then adjust colouring that's suitable for a decent showing within the limitations of FM. As we've seen with some recent random postings, some think any ball graphic makes for a good showing. It's partly the reason why I “retired”, due to the time required for a half decent presentation in the game. However, I'm ok with requests within my limits of English leagues, domestic cup competitions, European cup competitions and International competitions, providing a decent ball image is available. I use paint.net for making and editing, shading, colouration etc, it works well and it's free but like any good open source or free software, like flutskin, it's only fair to donate.

It's a language thing I'm guessing buddy. You said similar regarding the audio commentary. It's “Can you”, which makes it a question and a request. “You can” is a statement. Yes, most balls can be made but make it a question and end it with “please”, so it doesn't sound like a demand.

Yeah, surely just a language thing. Don't know about Polish, but I've studied some Japanese for fun and the only thing changing a sentence into a question is the mere addition of “-ka” at the end. 🙂

The ball format in FM22 and prior was “.dds”. If you're using FM23 or FM24, the ball format is “.png”.

Thanks so much! How do we add a ball to another league that's not included in your folder? I'm keen to add one for South Africa. Do I need to add something to the config file? Appreciate any help!

Sorry guys, not been active on these. I'll update some of the requests later on.

 

@redmisty do you have a copy of the ball and the names of the leagues or ID numbers?

I dont think that is the right ball. they seem to be using a green and yellow version of the new puma orbita.

Ah ok- so, I just want to assign a different 3d ball that isn't the vanilla FM one. Is that possible, via the config file? I can't get it to work.

Never mind - I fixed it! It requires in config the exact title of league (in this case, “DSTV Premiership”).
