Something that might also be of interest is that the @2x size system better known in connection with logopacks works for person images as well. Typically the @2x images are twice as large as the normal images.

  • If you have image 12345.png and [email protected] in the same folder, the [email protected] will be displayed in place of the 12345.png if the in-game zoom is 125% or higher.

  • Or

  • If you have image 12345.png in a folder and image 12345.png in its subfolder called @2x, the subfolder image will be displayed in place of the first 12345.png if the in-game zoom is 125% or higher.

    I have only very occasionally contributed some cuts to the pack, but here are a couple of thoughts.

  • SI's standard for FM18 is 250x250. There has been some back and forth in the size however. In FM16 (and before I would guess) it was 180x180, in FM17 it was 360x360, and now it is the 250x250 for FM18. What the standard will be in FM19 is not known, but it probably won't be smaller than 250x250.

  • Using the default FM18 skin, it really does not matter what size the person images are – the skin will resize them to fit the space wether it means making the image smaller or larger (I have not paid enough attention to confirm this as true for every single screen, but it would appear to be so). Still, it is not known if SI will always provide skins that behave this way, so a uniformity of size in the pack is required to a certain extent. Otherwise people's heads migh appear to be of wildly different sizes, or pics might even begin to overlap other elements on the screens (or just be cut of and not displayed in their entirety).

  • As can be seen from Vinceultras42's screenshots, some fan-made skins do not resize the images on all screens – a quality which might emerge in SI's skins as well.

  • Is there value in having all the images of the same uniform size as files sitting on a hard drive? Maybe? In any case it, it would require some work to resize larger images to 180x180, but there would be no quality loss compared to the other 180x180 pics (if uniformity of size was desired at some later point).


  • With the above on mind I would suggest the following flexible system. You decide if it has any merits.

    1. Have 2 standard sizes: 180x180 and 250x250.
    2. Leave the existing images be – no resizing.
    3. Everyone should strive to make all the new cuts in the larger size, but if good source images simply are not available, 180x180 will do as well.

    Mostly because we already have over 199,000 cuts in 180x180 format and the default skin doesn't even display them as large as that.

    Resizing them all automatically is doable, but would take an awful lot of work. The resulting cuts would be a bit unfocused and blurry, too.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the default skin always resize the person image to what ever the size of the space reserved for it is? It means that the pics can be displayed in sizes much larger than the 180px if a high level of in-game zoom is in use. I typically use either 175% or 200% zoom. At 200% the player pics on the Attributes screen are displayed at size 280px, and I can confirm that the stretching indeed does make them a tad unfocused.

    Here you can see the player pic size at 200% zoom:

    You are running a finetuned operation with the Cut Out pack, but it is my opinion that considering a larger image size would be beneficial. No need to resize the existing images, but perhaps new cuts could be made in a larger size? It appears that the images included in the game are 250x250px just as Vinceultras42 says, but I would go even bigger than that - maybe 300x300px. Naturally such a jump in size would make finding suitable source images for the cuts somewhat more challenging.

    The Sportfreunde Siegen logo should already be in the pack. The Berekum Chelsea and Qäbälä badges are not - I will add them, though they may have to be recreated from scratch to maintain quality.

    Couldn't find the answer to this question but does anyone know how to change the national flag to the national emblem?
    The image i've attached shows the England National flag under Nation Profile but is there a way to change that to the National emblem (three lions)?

    It should work if you duplicate the folder that contains the FA logos, and then edit the config in that folder so that the word "logo" near the end of the approriate lines reads "flag" instead.

    By Example
    <record from="10" to="graphics/pictures/nation/10/logo"/>

    <record from="10" to="graphics/pictures/nation/10/flag"/>

    I will highlight errors and fixes, if any.

    Its great if you can point out any errors. The pack should function correctly, but its basically for certain that there are some wrong or outdated logos.

    Alternative download link please. MEGA is until 1.43GB downloaded. free acount download limited
    ex) mediafire.com upload please

    As far as I understand Mega has a 5GB limit after which one must wait before downloading can be resumed. Perhaps you can download the pack later?

    Downloaded them and fair to say I'll be using these again this year. Awesome to see a couple of my redrawn logo's made the grade for the pack as well. Super thrilled to be part of it.

    I thought you might check if logos of your making are in the pack after you said you were downloading it. You clearly have talent, so if there are more logos coming and they find their way into the pack, I will add your name on the acknowledgements list.

    Used these extensively in FM17. Will defo be downloading and taking a look at these this year again.

    I hope you will find them apt for the purpose this time as well.

    Much of the work to make the new pack has gone to replacing obsolete logos, so what is going for 18v1 is that it should be reasonably well up to date.

    Just wondering if it may be possible for @ducc and/or @aka_wizard to continue this thread from WhiteH, should they wish to?

    Unfortunately I simply do not have time to do it.

    I have noticed the same thing about some clubs' reserve teams. No idea how to make it work - maybe it is a bug. I posted a thread concerning the issue on the bugs forum of the official FM Community, but there has been no reply from SI.

    Can you download metallic logos then copy+paste tcm over them so logos that are not donr by tcm are done in metallic?

    No need to copy anything over something. Just put both the TCM pack and the Metallic pack in the graphics folder. The game "reads" the logos in the order the packs appear in the graphics folder, so make sure the TCM folder has a name that comes before the Metallic pack folder in alphabets/numbers (rename if needed). This way the game will display a TCM logo when there is one, and a Metallic logo when there isn't (as long as a Metallic logo for the ID exists).

    Yes there will be a new pack. It should be ready by late November early December.

    Thank you first for the compliment.

    Indeed, the number of proposed logos shall not be greater than the FM17.3.0 database, and remain lower than FM18 to its release, there will always be a delay of season.

    For France : 1403 Active Clubs and 450 extinct clubs. But contributor Vince_Taiwan who worked on searching for missing logos found 308 but 77 could not be found.

    Is it then too pedantic to say that France has not actually been fully completed? The Metallic logos sometimes use city coats of arms in place of club logos if the logos have been impossible to find.

    In FM18, there will be even more clubs, the new French research team working hard for 2/3 years.

    Just my opinion, but it would be better if the researchers (in all countries) concentrated on keeping the clubs that are already in the DB fully researched and up to date what it comes to correct club names, colours, stadiums and cities rather than finding many new teams to add.

    It is also necessary to say that I am alone in working on the pack (application of the template and organization) but with work and family life (which has evolved since the beginning, like everyone else), there is less time to devote to the pack, but being a passion, I wanted to continue hence the call to the contributors (for the search for logos) and the developers (to retouch the logos, clean them).

    And with 16 contributors from around the world plus some filling out the request form regularly, I managed to work on this pack with seriousness and it's nice to see that the work and the logopack pleases to many people (200,000 this season). And it is for this reason that I still count better and better organize myself to try perhaps one day to reach the number of logos proposed by the Metallic! ^^

    Building a logopack is indeed very time consuming! Quite ambitious to try to reach the number of logos in the Metallic pack, considering the constant updates to it.

    The summers in Italian football tend to be pretty eventful. Of the clubs davnap94 and Chris93 posted above, at least Latina, Como, Mantova, Fondi, Messina, Molfetta and Derthona have had some form of discontinuity in their existance. The clubs' IDs may be subject to change.

    Looks like the pack is making a step forward what it comes to scope!

    Must say though, that as far as I understand FM 17.3.0 has more than 1398 active French clubs (+ several hundred extinct ones). The number of clubs in FM 18 is at this point unknown at least for the general public.
