    Tutorial to get fitness % back instead of heart icon

    This worked for me for Tato skin, but presumably it should work with any skin. First few steps are for Tato skin specifically. 1. Install and run Resource Archiver. 2. Extract the Tato FMF file to Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\skins through Resource Archiver. 3. Make Tato...

    Median newgen PAs of African clubs (test results)

    Because no African league apart from South Africa exists in the game, I decided to activate the leagues in the editor to get a clear picture of their newgen quality. No attributes were changed. The most accurate measure of newgen quality is the median CA/PA of the intake. Given that very few...

    U23 team not in a league

    From memory, you need to wait until one of the other u23 teams drops out, which from even vaguer memory is when their main team gets relegated sufficiently. But consider this.. The u23 competition reduces your players training time due to more matches. They will also be more likely to...

    A Guide to Training

    Yes, that's probably very well true. I'm using FM19 and experienced the same. Your post made me think about this and brought me to a conclusion that I mention in Part 2, which is that the way to go about it would be to leave youth players in your youth teams for as long as possible to develop...

    A Guide to Training

    Part 2. 'Attacking'/'Possession'/'Defending' (specialized) sessions In my schedule I have 'attacking wings', 'defending engaged', 'chance conversion', 'chance creation', and 'aerial defense'. You will want to choose your own sessions based on what tactical style and attributes your tactic...

    A Guide to Training

    Thanks Yes, feel free to make articles using my information, though I would like a simple attribution to my username and blog. The reason I haven't made this into a blog post yet is because it's more speculative than fact-based, unlike my findings on newgen PA. When I get more evidence, and...

    The best leagues to load in Football Manager for Newgens [Data Based]

    This is something that interests me, that as you say, is difficult to isolate. My theory on training will identify key attributes that are beneficial across all players, and the degree (roughly) to which they are beneficial (for instance, 'professionalism' is more important than 'penalties')...

    Why have youth teams?

    The above advice is good I think I can add a bit If you have good training and have it so your youth/reserve teams always win against their opponents, then it will be much better than any loan due to good training + good happiness Youth teams will actually train better than your first team...

    Just sent you a message, but in case someone else wants to know, I plan on making posts on these two things soon: Training Set of steps to creating a near-perfect custom DB (hours long process, but gives better result than default game) I can put out some more stuff on PA (i.e. more specific...
