Discussion
If I remember rightly, Personal Assistants / Press Officers / Club Spokespersons have been in the game previously.

However, with the updated skin in FM17, the face picture of each staff member now appears above a news piece in your inbox.

Therefore, my question is, can we add a face picture to these generic staff members, considering they don't have accessible profiles? Do they have unique ID's?

For instance, 'Amelie Roberts' is my PA in my Man Utd save, but she has a default black silhouette where a staff picture would normally go. Assuming this staff member is a generic character and not a real person, could a picture be assigned to that staff member later on like with normal face pack add-ons?

I find female regens having a blank silhouette in the game, as annoying as not being able to upload your own manager photo this year. Would be a welcomed graphical addition if we could images to this area which has been neglected by SI.

Thanks for any help.

agree. the black Silhouette looks so out of place. Assume you tried to find your PA in the editor and could not
Would love if anyone could shine a light on this.

Sounds like something @mons and the face pack making crew would know!

At a guess, you probably can. However, it'd be on a game by game basis. You'd have to open the save game in the editor and find their UIDs and assign a pre-made picture like you do for facepacks. Don't take that for gospel, though!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

1.find the id number of your female staff member and add that number to the faces config/xml file
2.find a pic you wish to use for this staff member and add into the faces pack

As an alternative to this you could always just add an actual pic as the default face instead of the dark silhouette (as I have done)

Oh and by the way.....you can now have your own Manager pic in game.

Like @DazS8 says, it should be relatively straight-forward if you find their UID. However, I don't use save-game editors and I would suspect that finding their UID is not possible as save-game editors would focus more on players and staff members.

I don't have an in-game editor (don't use them) to check if you can find them. Does anybody have the capability to check?

@Vawkes & @jWaSiMhE & @DazS8, not sure if either of you started this thread on the official forums, but in it michaeltmurray (who is a mod and the forum's long-term skinning guru) indicated that it is extremely unlikely for something like this to be possible...

It is a shame if is true we can't.

See also here. This would arguably be better (at least for the bigger clubs).

Here are the default pics (most skins have them included already)

Put either into your skins graphics/pictures folder

Is there an update on this to fix the latest update?
Glad to see that other people are eager to have this added to the game.

By the looks of the latest FM feature video released on YouTube, female staff still have black silhouette faces, which is pretty ridiculous. Hopefully they may have made it easier for us to attain the UIDs, but I imagine that will be unlikely too.

Have many people managed to replace the female default silhouette image with their own picture? I imagine this picture would then represent every generated female in the game though?

Has anyone been able to see if this is possible in FM18 yet?

Either to find the UID of a generated female staff member or to replace the dark silhouette image of a female generated staff member (i.e. press officer)?
