The 3D face that we are able to create completely ruins the immersion for me.
For the longest time I was always wondering, could we use a real photo instead which I found out during FM 21.
How to change your manager profile picture in FM 2023A quick Football Manager 2023 tutorial
Personally, I've compiled a small photo pack of stock headshots of different people that I thought fit the part of “Manager” and I have been using this privately for about a year or so and I figured I would like to share it with all of you.
Depending on what country I start a new save, I like to create a fictional manager using the photos in the pack and coming up with a fictional name depending on the managers nationality. I like to use google to get inspiration for a name of my manager. For example, I'd search “Danish Name Generator” if I wanted my manager to be from Denmark. I'd pick from a list of realistic names that I personally feel fits the profile of my manager. IMO, I just feel it gives it that little bit of realism.
Feel free to try it out! If you like it? Awesome! if not, then no worries.
