FM 2018 Fantasy Scenarios - Helvetti's World League & Revamped Youth Ratings [0.2a - 08/09]
Warning! This FM18 database is still in development and being thoroughly tested. However, the leagues and cups are fully working!

I've ran a simulation with all the leagues on through 2023. No bugs have been found. International breaks seems to be working fine!


Recommended Setup

  • I would recommend ticking "Add players to playable teams" and "Do not use real fixtures".

  • I advise loading a small database, if you want to load every league! It’s 1,4k clubs, so with small database that comes to a little under 80k players.

  • If you want to do Journeyman, I recommend checking off the Feeder Leagues, or even League 15 if you aren’t going to manage there!

In this overhaul, the baseline of wonderkids is more spread out between nations, as well as having a lower ceiling than in vanilla. This means that if one of the clubs of small nations is either lucky, or develop their facilities, the nation can grow much better in the long run, instead of just being the punching bag of the world!

    0.2a minor bugfix update up!
  • Magnus's avatar
    Most lower teams will have much less busy transfer activities. I would recommend loading up the three, maybe four, first tiers (up to Challenger/League 1)
  • nijode999's avatar
    I mostly like to play with only 2 leagues loaded ( Because I want to get surprised which team will get promoted / its faster ) Will that also work good. Just loading top 2 leagues. Or will that effect transfers and stuff badly?
