All American Franchises Database - Custom USA
All NHL / NBA / NFL / MLB Franchises added to the US.
Credit for the NFL/MLB teams goes to dim13 on the SI website.

ok, here we go, lets see if i miss anything (first ever db).

Setting up a GAME
1) Make sure you tick - 'add players to playable teams'
2) Make sure you un-tick - 'Do not add Key Staff'
3) Using the advanced rules to add all Canadian and US players is advised

Nation Info
Season dates - Are inline with the English League. (10th Aug - 15th May)
Season End Date - 1st June
Youth Intake is usually just after.
Season rules - as per England - No draft, No Designated player etc.
Canadian Players are no longer classed as Foreign.
USA has been slightly boosted in youth rating/nation terms to match England.

Team Info
All Main created teams should have the correct -

Name
City
Stadium
Nickname
Rivals

All reps for created teams were improvised for the most part but dynasty franchises, Celtics, Patriots, Yankees, Oilers etc tend to be at the higher end of the scale (I have little knowledge of these sports so used various site Power Rankings for the most part).

All PDL teams have the same rep / cash starting point.

Division Layout - Main Leagues - 5 Levels
Premier - 20 teams - 4 relegated
Major League - 44 teams - 2 Groups of 22 - 2 promoted / 4 relegated (per group)
US Football League - 80 teams - 4 sub divisions of 20 - 2 promoted / 4 relegated (per group)
Minor League - 48 teams - 2 sub divisions of 24 - 2 promoted / 4 relegated (per group)
AAA League - 64 teams - 4 sub divisions of 16 - 1 promoted (per group)

Each team has a Main Squad / Reserves & U21 Squad.
Each team has a feeder team in the PDL League

PDL Divisions - Feeder Teams - 5 Tiers
Premier - 20 teams - 4 relegated
Championship - 2 Divisions - 2 promoted / 4 relegated (per group)
Tier 1 - 64 teams - 4 Groups of 16 - 2 promoted / 2 relegated (per group)
Tier 2 - 64 teams - 4 Groups of 16 - 2 promoted / 2 relegated (per group)
Tier 3 - 64 teams - 4 Groups of 16 - 2 promoted (per group)

Cups
Super Bowl - NFL Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
Stanley Cup - NHL Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
World Series - MLB Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup
Nike Air Cup - MLB Teams only - Groups into Knockout style cup

Casadia Cup - All 256 Main division teams in a League Cup.
Atlantic Cup - All 512 Main Divisions and PDL teams in an FA Cup. Main teams are fed into the draw at later stages.
American Liberty Cup - All 256 PDL teams in League Cup

Division Rules - Main Divisions
Will take suggestions on these once a few long term players confirm if they need adjustment or not.
See attached screenshot for breakdown

Money - TV/Prize/Parachute etc
Will take suggestions on these once a few long term players confirm if they need adjustment or not.
At the min, the domestic treble will net you £50,000,000
See attached screenshot for breakdown

**UPDATE - 31/3/16 - All awards for monthly/yearly, filtered to all divisions and cups

Please don't post anywhere else. thanks wkd.

Please feel free to flag mistakes, suggestions etc as i'll be updated and working on this

I think I may have figured it out. I went through and tested with a number of other teams. The only ones I had issues with were the Sounders and Galaxy. As it turns out, those are also the ones with local TV deals. I took those out, and the problem went away. I haven't simulated too far into the future yet to make sure, but I'm hopeful that resolves it. But I haven't tested/checked if any lower level teams have local deals either.


Cheers if i make this for 18, i;ll sort it out.

Do you know if there's any way to remove MLS taking 33% of the transfer fees? I'm also having issues with the image packs working. It's unsettling to see the Houston Texans with the Mariners logo lol, and in addition some teams aren't getting any logos at all. I moved them into the graphics folder, removed other logos I'd downloaded, etc. and nothing seemed to work.

Also, I've played from 2016 to early 2020, and there's been some occasional issues with fixture congestion early on but then (sometimes) later in the season (usually starting in late February or March) there'll be a 2-3 empty weeks (sometimes including the international break) followed by some more congestion (two league matches in a week instead of one being on a previous Saturday). There's also an odd thing where there's a cup game Wednesday, no league game on Saturday, another cup game on say Wednesday before a league game the following Saturday. None of these are that major of issues, but I'm wondering if you know how to fix this.

Another question too lol: for the World Series and other cups is it always original MLB teams or is it somehow tied to where a team is in the pyramid?

I'm really loving this. Thanks for making it!

1) Do you know if there's any way to remove MLS taking 33% of the transfer fees? - Yes you need to remove the 33% income tax rule from the USA. (only found this out last week, making the fm18 version)

2) I'm also having issues with the image packs working. - Do you have any other editor files loaded? Files should always be the first 3 in the list you select at game start to correlate to the packs.

3) The World Series / Superbowl etc are always the same qualifier teams. The MLS teams get the the other cup (Lamar hunt i think it was)


Thank you for the feedback, its much appreciated. I assumed no bugger was using it

Where do you go to remove that 33%? I can't seem to find it in the USA section in the advanced rules (or even more likely am looking for the wrong thing). If I understand correctly, it's in the taxation section (idr the exact phrasing) where it lists the tax brackets for the players?

Yes, I do. I think they're called the Susie name fixes. It's the database that corrects the names of competitions (e.g. UCL instead of whatever the default is), make the German national team work, etc. Would I need to restart the game then to get the image packs to properly work?

Gotcha. Apparently I'm not too observant lol. So, to play stupid, starting MLS teams will always get MLS Cup competition *and* not everyone will get the US Open one? I have noticed that sometimes in the first round of both cups I'll get other first division teams or even someone's academy. Is there a way to regionalize it and/or prevent either major or really unfair matchups from happening in the first round?

Haha, I'm glad I could help! This is a great database and a whole lot of fun. Thanks again!

I have a somewhat unrelated question as well. Have you tried to make (or have suggestions how to make) an "Americas Champions League" (ACL or a similar name) analogous to UEFA CL? My general idea was that the ACL would pull the top teams from all the major leagues in both South and North America. However, CONCACAF Champions League and Copa Libertadores would still exist as analogous to Europa League where teams that crash out in the ACL, the winner of minor leagues (e.g. top Panamanian team) that lose in qualifiers for ACL, or ones that finish in lower positions in major leagues (e.g. 5th and 6th in MLS) would then be put into their respective federation's continental competitions. Do you have any thoughts on this?

If the susie files are still under the default it should be a problem, the same is also true for the graphcis folder though, the image and kits files for this should always be first in alphanumerical order. (put the in graphics/000 usually works, clear cache etc)

The Superbowl / Lamar Hunt etc are the league cups for the MLS/NHL etc

Do you have any thoughts on this? I dont. creating new Continental cups in the editor is a nightmare and can be pretty buggy. The editors hideaway on SI would be your best bet to check
Awesome thank you so much!
Alright, so I'm having some issues again. I've removed the 33% income tax rule from Nation-USA-Tax Rules, but I'm still getting the 33% sell on fee for MLS. I also tested out some other USA edited databases, and some of them have that income tax still in the list, but MLS doesn't take 33%.

Oh damn, not sure then, ask the other makers what they did?
I think I may have figured it out. I duplicated MLS so that it got a new unique ID and marked "old" MLS as extinct. Then I went through CCL and everywhere else that mentioned "old" MLS and switched it to the new duplicated one. I tested it, and the 33% charge was gone and as far as I could tell everything worked fine, but I didn't sim any seasons, just tested selling players inside and outside of the league. But I'm having an issue getting it to run with the Canadian database. I have the load order go USA-Canada-CONCACAF which means Canada tells me there aren't enough/too many teams for the various leagues. If Canada is loaded first, then MLS has 0 teams. So, somewhere in the process I must've messed something up. Still working on that one.
