How far up the pyramid do you intend to let the II teams rise, man?
I don't think i can restrict them if I link it'll be top of the tree if they can but I'd expect decades for an AI team to make it. They are classed as feeder teams so nit sure I can restrict the m as I would a B team.

But both databases will be there, i'll have a look about restricting the II teams to tier 3 at the highest only.

As the PDL division are a 'shadow' of the main for player development, not sure if i should restrict the teams to

under 30 players only or,
squad size limit 25, but only 10+ can be over 24.

something like that..

Im gonna set it up, run a holiday for 10 years but take a snapshot of one squad per season and see how they work it.

Squad Rules
25 Limit Size
Less than 10 over 24 yrs old
More than 10 must be HG (Nation 0-21 yrs)

Match Squad
More than 5 must be HG (Nation 0-21 yrs)
Less than 5 players can be Foreign (Non-US or Non Canadian)

First XI
At least 3 starters must be U23


EDIT : Ran a test to 2019 last night, all squads in the PDL Prem had an average age of 24 or under, and had 3-5 loans in a squad. So this will be the final rules for the PDL setup.

Decided to use the 'out of contract' managers to fill in the PDL teams. They get the job if they are unemployed and born in that town/state. Time saver.. :)

It's an awesome DB, man, and it'll be even better when you upload the final version. I'll be using this as my USA DB for at least the next few FM releases!
Yh, i'll defo keep dragging it through the versions now its done! :)

USA should be done - tommorow - just the bottom 2 divisions to add managers for.
Canada is pretty much done - just pulling the logos/kits through. prob sat.

Haven't had a chance to check as yet, bud. Work is a *****. As soon as I can though, I'll be sure to let you know!
S'ok i think the guy was getting a clash from something else he had loaded.

I've used the extended Eng, Scot, Pr0s & Nik33s updates, the metallic logos and kits fix and the real name with no issue to 2025. As well as a few custom preseason tournament files (Emirates Cup etc) without issue or fail.
