This was a project for personal use that I started on FM22 a few months ago. However, given the dedication and effort that I have put into it, I have decided that it is worth it for the FM community in English and Spanish to try it, since it is for me and my country COLOMBIA, a dream to be able to have a THIRD PROFESSIONAL league in intermediate and large cities.
First, I want to clarify that the FIRST and SECOND divisions were subtly modified in terms of television rights, participation, among other things, but their format remains the same as the real one. In the SECOND division a team was added, TURBO FC, as last year's champion. (This last is true, in the amateur league)
Second, the cup was modified by adding all the teams from the THIRD division, so more rounds of direct elimination were also added. Additionally, the television and participation rights, among other things, were modified.
Third, and most importantly, remember that the third division is completely fictitious and made at my discretion. The teams were arbitrarily selected by me and modified accordingly. I chose to locate them in those cities where there are currently no teams.
Thus, the third division is composed as follows:
- 60 teams divided into 3 groups, by geographical order, of which 4 qualify by group for the next round. (Along with images of uniforms, shields, stadiums and cities)
- In the second round, 4 groups of 3 teams are formed, also in geographical order, in which 1 classifies per group.
- In the third round, semifinals and finals are played to determine the champion. The two teams that qualify for the final are promoted to the second division.
- There are historical teams such as Real Sincelejo, Sucre, Centauros, Lanceros (Falcao's debut club), Uniautonoma, Estudiantil, Sarmiento Lora, Compensar, Girardot, Popayán, Fiorentina, Churta among others, along with universities such as Los Andes, Javeriana, Univalle, Sergio Arboleda, who have served as a seedbed for our football.
- Each 3rd division team starts with 500,000 euros of balance to carry out their investments, and the vast majority of teams without players to create a fictitious dispute between them for the free players.
Fourth, the following additional changes were made:
- Adjusted the value of the currency to reflect real salaries of the players, and the value in the market.
- Adjusted TV rights and cash prizes to enhance revenue
- Increased the potential of some players.
- Historical records have been kept when real competition existed.
- 22 fictional derbies, along with fictional rivalries, mainly between teams from nearby cities and regions.
- Fixed nicknames and names for all teams.
- Created a fictitious U-20 league for each division.
- Uniforms and colors for each team
- Other minor personnel changes.
- Other small modifications.
Fifth, home, away, and third (for some) uniforms were added for all teams in all three divisions.
Sixth, images of cities or places of interest were added for all the teams of the three divisions.
Seventh, stadium images were added for all the teams in the three divisions.
Eighth, normal and small size shields were created and modified for all the teams in the three divisions.
The files for shields, uniforms, cities and stadiums can be found in the graphics folder within the download file.
Finally, I suggest if you are Colombian, change the currency to Colombian pesos in the game for greater realism and immersion.
I have done this work with a lot of effort and dedication, so if you want you can...
