How will this feature affect our games? Can we play this update without the CA/PA changes?
Yes, the CA/PA file is a new file beside the others. If you don't want this file, simply don't choose it when you start a new game.

How to install this data update to FM 2018

  1. Extract the downloaded .zip file.

  2. Move the extracted .fmf updates you want to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2018 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Make a new "Career" game. Choose the "18.3.0 Update" database option and select my files.

In case you have more editor data files:
When setting up a new game, do not have any other data update files ticked on your Editor Data Files screen except this one.
Choose only my files if you are not sure about the changes in every file. Many files together from different creators can cause crashes to the game, duplicates and other problems. Avoid using files from different creators.

    When starting a new game with all the files on, countries in Spain and italy have the wrong number of teams in their leagues.
  • rapt91's avatar
    This is awesome and such a great idea! might add Craigh Shakespear etc from Sam Allardyces backroom staff have left Everton i'm pretty sure.
    Is there any way that you can make the date playable from mid 2018? (pre-season of current season) cause that would be awesome!
  • Lyoninyo's avatar
    Hi, where is the new update, it should be today ( been waiting for it for a week)
  • Naysmith's avatar
    Is the new update going to have the B teams in Serie C?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Chains, no the new update will come either on the 18th or 20th.

    @joebcfc, please be more specific, I didn't understand a thing.
  • Chains's avatar
    Just wondering, will there be an update today?
  • joebcfc's avatar
    Is there a league update I can do which wont cause conflict with the transfer update?
  • lucas mccaulinho's avatar
    @Pr0 awesome, thanks for explaining! Looks perfect now
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @lucas mccaulinho, Once you have download the pack above, delete my transfers file and download the green link (FMTU) to get the newest transfers and move the file into the editor data folder.
  • lucas mccaulinho's avatar
    Have you updated transfers since deadline day in the PL?
    Just tried to start a new career and:
    Sergio Rico (loan), Alfie Mawson, Calum Chambers (loan), Tim Fosu-Mensah (loan), Joe Bryan, Andre Frank Zamba Anguissa & Luciano Vietto (loan) are not in the Fulham squad.
    Had a quick look at some other teams like Everton for example and some other deadline day transfers not appearing like Bernard, A Gomes & Y Mina
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @alexpuk2002, are you sure you have moved the files in the correct folder?
  • alexpuk2002's avatar
    I seem to be still getting Sam Allardyce as the manager of Everton when I start a new game with this. I have also downloaded the latest version of FMTU as I am a member over there.
  • Drilla150's avatar
    Nope not my first year playing football manager.
    Your incorrect.

    I just stuck with the transfer update after all
    left everything unchecked.
  • brad's avatar
    @lucas mccaulinho, bearing in mind this pack gets updated every 2 weeks, i'd go ahead and download it now unless you're willing to wait till the 15th for ALL the transfers
  • GMCG178's avatar
    Only 3 changes I've noticed are Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna both are first team coaches at Manchester United. Roberto Mancini is the Italy manager.

    Great work again and just found out about the FMTU which is amazing.
  • lucas mccaulinho's avatar
    @pr0 cool bruh, thats more like it!
    Painfully waiting till the 9th (Deadline Day) then ill download. Looks great tho
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @lucas mccaulinho, predicted finishes/backing of the board can't be altered through editor. Their transfer budget is altered in my general changes and it's 15.6M Euros.

    @MightyReds, in my general changes yes.

    @Enionas, if I do that, european winners will have 1 less trophy. Would that be more realistic? I think people like to see that the last winner is Real Madrid and that trophy counts.

    @Drilla150, no words needed in your situation, seems like it's your 1st year playing FM games.

    @Drilla150, star ratings are only opinions of a scout/coach. It is formed by the player knowledge level, JCA and JPA of that specific scout/coach, and is implemented to reflect the expectations & current situation of that football club. It does not necessarily mean David De Gea has been made a worse player. I don't know if his attributes have been changed or not, but that is what you should be judging. Not the stars, which mean absolutely nothing (to me anyway).
  • Drilla150's avatar
    BIG change needed why is David De Gea only 3.5 star rating and 4 star potential? must be a mistake 4.5 star with the regular update and 5 star potential. FIX IT!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • MightyReds's avatar
    Steven Gerrard isnt in Rangers ?
  • Enionas's avatar
    Can you guys please remove trophies won in 2017/2018 season?
    Example: Real Madrid has won Champions League this season and you guys put Champions trophy count to 13. It makes no sense because the game starts in 2017 and anyone can win it so, for example, let's say Manchester United wins it Real Madrid will still have 13 trophies and in the history, it will be recorded that Real Madrid and Manchester United won the trophy in 2018.
  • lucas mccaulinho's avatar
    I have a question...have the clubs predicted finishes/backing of the board/transfer budgets been altered at all?
    I ask because i want to start a new career with Fulham and since we gained promotion we look to be investing heavily and the board are showing great ambition.
    The current transfer budget when you start with Fulham is £5m with another update i tried and the general consensus is we'll be lucky to stay in the Premier League
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @RealMadridsta, see here : Wonderkids

    @rubenw & @jmoreira, promotions/relegations have been updated in previous releases, I even have a file for that, how could you miss it? :D
  • Stam's avatar
    Next repack for pr0's data pack is August 1st.

    @jmoreira: There's a file for relegations and promotions in this data pack. What is your username on FMTU? :)

    @RealMadridsta: You could load the relevant file with wonderkids in the pre-game editor and have a look.
