    @Alohafatboiii I thought we were supposed to Move the folder called 'Champions League'. LMAO. The instructions are way too unclear tbh.

    Instructions are unclear.
    If I want to use the Champions' League ball, do I move the folder called "mesh" inside the "Champions League" folder to Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2020?

    OR do I move the "ball" folder inside the "mesh" folder to Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2020?

    @majesticeternity. Yep, I made an entire ballpack for FM18, then they messed with the colours in FM19 and it took me too long to work out so only made the one ball (EPL) for my personal use. Then, as I said when I saw the ball template for FM20 I thought WTF and only managed to make the blue panels black on the default ball to heighten the visual effect in play.

    Bravo SI for ruining the fun!! Why on earth would they lock the colours? We pay for a game. Therefore we should have access to everything. Not happy! Between SI and a certain very reputable Premier league team (I shall mention no names) taking fun out of it. This could be the last time I purchase FM. I’ve not missed a game going back to when it was CM and on floppy disk. But it’s grating me all the control they are taking away

    @Bartdude: Thanks! Yea, they definitely changed it. I don't know why. Maybe that's why I could figure it out, as I had no experience before and didn't have to "adjust" to a new way..

    Thanks you guys!

    I would love the EPL ball too!

    Unfortunately, SI has "locked" the ball colors, so we can only do black, white, or variants of blue.

    So the EPL ball would be black, white, and blue. Not pink, and not much different from the other balls I already made...

    Good stuff ! Having made balls for FM18 and 19, the template for FM20 has always baffled me !

  • richbell82's avatar
    Superb work, just one question... When do you think the English Premier League ball will be available?
    Many thanks in advance
