Football Manager 2017 Data Updates - Huge Database Addon for FM17
I've been releasing this add-on on home site for a few years now, thought to share it here finally.

Now you can play with Huge DB enabled at start of the game.

By default, when creating a new save-game you can choose between small, medium and large database size. This addon will give you the choice of a huge database which adds roughly 4,000 more players to the extensive database.

This is mainly an option for people who don't want to fiddle with the advanced database settings for their game.

  3. Open Football Manager 2017 and go to Preferences > Interface.

    So...we are talking about real players based on reputation, isn't it? Thank you for your great work and greetings from Spain!!!

    Thank you for the explanation Bard. Great addition to the game!

    @az it's not necessarily 4k players, it's proportionate to how many leagues you load. eg. I loaded just Serbia, and there are 4k more players in and around leagues you loaded. If you tick for example Eng, Bra, Fra, Ger, Spa and Ita there would be around 10k more players.

    Players loaded are based on reputation mostly

    Hi Bard, just curious to know that is the 4,000 more players been add is real life players from random league?

    Just extract to FM user folder, usually it's Documents / Football Manager 2017 and that't it.

    And be sure to clear skin cache and reload skin in preferences
