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 site Dynasty 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.

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

I've been working on the level 9 trophies for English Lower League databases.

Some are a bit of poor quality due to pics around but i've tried to fix as best i can.. Any interest once they are done?

kremmen any advice on cleaning them up in photoshop?

I didnt see what ever the message was, if you want something amending im happy to try?
Thanks mate these are great, could the team logo be slightly bigger though?


Sure, glad they are ok.

Hey there just another request (similar style as the RBL/Dortmund and Freiburg kits you done for me)

Team - Middlesbrough
Sponsor - Ramsdens
Home - Red and White
Away - Yellow and Black

Thanks.


I add a go at these at part of my learning (hope no one minds).

Can we get an Italian Serie B pack please?


Check the WIP thread, thats one of the ones on the list being done at the min..

https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/17191/ss-1516-wip-thread
Daft question do you guys use a standardized size for the badge or sponsor, when creating kits?

Ive just been aligning them with the sleeves/collar, centering, but i'm getting my badges out of whack accross images.

any recommendation on the pixel size of the badge or how best to make sure its always in't same location?
Yep, trial and error, thats how it works

At least youre trying to do something original which is a big plus.


I'm getting used to it now i think,

Using scout player button makes you able to scout player's outside of you scout area. So it's pretty much game breaking bug.


pretend they are scouting in the scout room via dvds/tapes footage only
Also you need to take account of the per pixel resolution of the base logo as this does affect the bevel look - they have to be between 96-108 for a uniform look and then the action downsizes them to 72 which is the same as standard - hope that makes sense.

Once youve done that you just need to factor in the diferent sizes of logo and start ripping your hair out....


Nope, not a clue. I'm kinda just playing with the various settings one by one to see where it gets me. ie Just raising the lettering/banners, and lighting/bevelling various parts. Trial and error by fire at the min. The two i just posted were worked through bevel and chrome mostly in eye candy.

The chicago pic is a perfect example of me jsut fucking about with settings on piece by piece rather than a full select, invert, add metallic, lighten and save. that some of the earlier ones were.

I appereciate you taking a look, cheers.
In Eyecandy mate - just use a totally flat normal base so theoretically it can work with any program/addon in the future (well that was the original plan).


didnt even notice it had a bevel option lol.

Great skin, inspired me to make a sky sports news page in the style of the above into my own skin.... obvs need work to match the original quality but im happy with it

Cheers, i just been using that for the metallic overlay, as i'm not to familiar with it, didnt seem to do much else at first glance (might just be 7) i'l play a bit further
In my own settings i have a bevelled edge that gives it that mock 3D look - not sure if thats possible in V7 though.


Yeah, just started playing around with that, and emboss and under/overlay on the letters to kinda raise them up and give it a bit of 3-D to it.. you can see in the 2nd set of pictures i posted where i've bevelled/boosed the edge to get a lift.

Just trial and error i think for now, if I get a decent set of settings i'll let you know.

Do you add the bevel in Alien or PS?
No idea as i've never watched them tbh - when I taught myself PS there was very little help available, and tbh if I can learn in my late 40's then I'm sure anyone can pick it up.

I use the Magic Wand tool a lot so this one should be a good place to start.


Hey Kremmen, do you have any tip on picking the right setting for the mettalic brush overlay, i'm using imact 7 not 5 an the option dont seem to drop down in the attachment actions you uploaded. The cutting trimming etc and most basic edit i can get.

It jsut picking the right overlay settings to get a decent finish on the badges i'm struggling with, do you have a psd. halfdone i can look at or some advice please:?

heres my efforts before and after.. as it stands, i know the image looks a bit flat, but i can add shadow to the back later, its adivce on the effect im after, ig you can.

Daft question - in the ne d/l there is a [email protected] pack

it this just an alt bunch of smalls?

and for Kremmen, what is the name of the photoshop plugin for creating mettalic images?
what was the name of the plug in file for photoshop to make you own, i remember seeing it and link but i forgot to bookmark it
There is an error in the config file for Maine Road (5103837), the graphics are there but no config line.

not checked if one is in twice, i just fixed my own. but thought i'd let you know

they look great.
