Example of a full Very Poor pitch, with new textures.

TESTING:

I tried to test these as much as I could, but it is impossible to test fully. There are so many textures, that each require all combinations of pitch material, pitch condition, pitch patterns, weather patterns, and game use.

How to Use:

Extract zip. Put textures folder in Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020. In FM, go to Preferences, and Clear Cache. Then Reload the Skin.

If you need to remove the textures for whatever reason, just delete the textures folder, then in FM, go to Preferences, and Clear Cache. Then Reload the Skin. They will be back to default textures.

V1.1:

Made grass lighter, closer to real life
Added snow texture (which is no longer just white over grass, but now snow) - needs testing

Many thanks to majesticeternity for allowing me to share here.

will this work in the 2D match engine as well as the 3D one?
Just to confirm, you put the (pitch) folder inside of the game folder as so:

You have to create a folder called textures then put the pitch folder in it....that is the way we always did it before .....the same with 3d match balls.
This is the method I followed and it def works

For the 3D balls, I moved last years mesh folder to the usual location Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2020. Not working for me.
Maybe the ball patterns have changed or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advanced
