Football Manager 2021 Data Updates - FM21 Awards Overhaul v1.2

Awards Overhaul Features

  • Added 60 New Awards (30 Global, 10 Continental, 14 English, 5 Spanish, 2 Portuguese, 3 Italian, 1 Argentina)
  • Added 100 Awards based on nabil_dx95's FM18 Global Awards (80 International Competition, 20 Continental)
  • Realistic color schemes for some
  • 4 New Worldwide Managerial awards (Best National Coach, Best Club Coach, Best Global Coach, Best Coach Career)
  • Made awards actually increase reputation and fixed empty reputations - almost half had empty home/world reputations (even Serie A Player of the Year, [*]La Liga Manager of the Year). Austrian Ambassador was 10/100/150, but Croatian POTY was 0 0 0)
  • Created a hierarchy, so that the most valuable are Global awards, then World Cup, then International, then Continental, then Continental Competitions, then popular leagues, etc.
  • Made continental/national awards more important to their area than the world (Example: European Best Goalkeeper matters more to Europe than South America or elsewhere. Spain Playmaker OTY matters more to Spain than elsewhere)
  • Made National Senior & Youth achievements valuable, compared to a league
  • Made youth achievements valuable
  • Made managerial achievements more valuable
  • Made GK awards valuable
  • Made yearly achievements much more valuable than monthly
  • Removed English and German reputation bias
  • Reduced overpowered English Premier POFM, TOTW, increased TOTY
  • Made English Championship awards valuable
  • Reduced overpowered English Premier Manager TOTM, increased TOTY
  • Reduced overpowered World Reputation of small nations (Example: Lithuanian POTY World Rep from 85 > 10)
  • Added Winner Home reputation for Managers to every nation

  • Several minor fixes, thanks to @spiros91!
  • Added Eredivisie TOTY, as @jessejesster requested
  • Fixed some reputations

*IMPORTANT NOTE*: The Global Manager Awards required a nation, so you must load England! Awards are loaded by nation. So if you want Italian Awards, you must load Italy.

    Will this work on fm22 ?

    Russian prizes are not correctly received by players who have nothing to do with Russia. Armenians, Belarusians , Kazakhs are not Russians!

    If the reputation of the league increases, will the awarded reputation of the awards subsequently increase too? Thank you.

    Hi! I'm just wondering and imagining that if I am using any other reputation edits (Daveincid's files) that I will not be able to use this one?

    It looks great, but I don't want to tank my new save, which I'll be streaming. Thanks very much.
