Yeah no sh*t, this is the same fixture amount as the default competition, which will start in 2025 in real life. Check my intercontinental cup file for the implementation of that December 2024 tournament, it's also true-to-life but more along the lines of...

No, it's a lot of work (my local school is D2 so I definitely wouldn't stop at D1), and that kind of amateur set-up doesn't really translate to FM to be honest (lots of unrealistic player movement). Meanwhile USL2 does the same thing (i.e., produce player...

Cheers, thanks for the help. I'm reluctant to implement anything that reduces the big 4 transfer activity so much as that's one of the fun parts about playing in Saudi. To be honest I spent way too much time on the Gulf files last year only for this trans...

Yeah but somebody else did a good one for FM23 as well if you're still on that: here

Wow not bad. There might be some glitches with bringing it into FM24 but sounds like it's working so far. Have you been playing in the Gulf much? I was so downhearted to see how bad the transfer AI is this year (top teams dropping all their Saudi players...

The new version on Steam? It wouldn't let me update the old one so I had to post a new link

Ahh OK the USL2 conference teams of the week weren't working so I dropped them but it sounds like I should have cleared the “nation” too. My bad… thanks for letting me know! Much appreciated

USA road trips go perfectly with this DB! 😉 Might try and take in a USL game next spring while I'm on the road

Ali Sheikh, editor files go in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2024/editor data or the equivalent folder

I think the problem is mostly located to leagues like Saudi Arabia where the AI is seeking such high-profile players. The game developers haven't also made them sufficiently account for Saudi players in their squads, so the computer-controlled managers en...

New version with a bare bones version of USL2 is up while I work on more details

Yeah, same as in FM23. I tried so many solutions last year and couldn't come up with anything. Unfortunately the big leagues in the Gulf are unplayable after one or two transfer windows due to the default transfer AI. My best guess is those teams are...

Brilliant! If you encounter any quirks with contracts, registration, scheduling, etc, PLEASE let me know. This will be a work in progress for a while as we try to make it release-quality. And watch this space for USL2!

Doesn't really interest me, especially since they dropped pro/rel, and to research all the formats and rules in order to do them proper justice you'd probably have to read Spanish. Try fmsite, that seems to be a Spanish-speaking hub for FM. I usually...

Just adding stuff that I see missing like rivalries and awards. It's totally playable now, you can start a new game. Although in the next few weeks you might see a D4 added along with more details like stadiums

USL2 is coming. Thanks for the kind words! I had a great USL2 save in FM18 as well

Good question, I'm not sure if it will work. I'd guess yes, but it needs testing. I just bought FM24 so I'm gonna release a new one for FM24 over the next few weeks anyway

Just do those edits in a separate file and load them at the same time. I don't imagine you can load nation rules in here as well, it's an international rules file

Nice! I think it should be fine. Does the first season have 18 teams in the Pro League? It switched from 16 teams in 2022/23 to 18 teams in 2023/24 but it should just skip the rules I have in there for 22/23 and start in 23/24 with 18 teams. That would be...

Will probably add a version for FM24 soon. I expect they'll deal with the overspending in the first patch or so, probably not worth trying to fix that ourselves until they deal with it

Do they have the box checked for “always amateur”?

That's correct, but I understand that UE Olot, who only sign Catalan players (I have a file that does this), will sign players from the Catalan lands (i.e. Valencia, Balearics, etc). So this supports that in the football world, at least, they can be recog...

Happens with created clubs all the time IIRC, game doesn't think they've been playing together a while. Might help if you set the “contract started” date under “contract” to something a few years ago

Or what does that say? I can't read Turkish (?). Something about 36 and 40 teams?

Are you on 23.3 or whatever caused the Iceland bug? That's nothing to do with me. I think the fix was this: To fix that just open the file in the pre game editor, save it under a new name, then take the club Kordrengir, make them un-extinct, and put...

OK it seems to be working. If a CONCACAF team wins, the best loser in the CCL qualifying round gets into the Libertadores too. They're just ineligible for the CCL standings (will think about if I want to change stuff to shift them back in there and make i...

If a North American team wins, it seems to free up a spot, I'm guessing the South American qualification is somehow bumping teams down. So if Flamengo wins, and also qualifies via Brazil, an extra Brazilian team gets invited. When a CONCACAF team wins, th...

The draw does look weird like that until the qualifying rounds are done, because of all the teams that haven't qualified yet, but I can see from your screenshot that it's July and it still hasn't drawn, so yes that was a result of the bug I fixed a few da...

Yeah sorry I sorted that in the last update a few days ago, if a CONCACAF teams win it now they don't get the automatic spot anymore and have to qualify through North America like usual (guessing they “double qualified” in that scenario and the competitio...

Updated with the 2024 CCL (now the CONCACAF Champions Cup) format, except the last 16 is no longer played and just draws results from the Libertadores group stage
