FM 2016 Fantasy Scenarios - Iron Curtain FM16
Fear the mighty Soviet Union team, see what would happen if Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic, Branislav Ivanovic, Stevan Jovetic, Edin Dzeko and Miralem Pjanic would play in the same team the European Brazil - Yugoslavia. Try to win the Workers' Union Cup playing behind Berlin Wall in East Germany or simply take over any western nation and show the commies where is their place.

Iron Curtain database fully recreates the footballing world for anyone nostalgic about 3 foreign players rule which is re implemented throughout Europe. Western clubs won't replenish their squads with cheap Yugoslavs, Czechoslovaks, Pollocks, Hungarians... as they are all making their leagues national priority and they won't let anyone out of country until they are close to their 30's in search for football glory and communist superiority over decadent west.

Recreate legendary rivalries with eastern European countries in all international tournaments from u19, through World Cup and Olympic games.

    Does the update works with fm15?

    I know this is 6 months late to the party, but I just wanted to say that I had a similar issue with the database not showing me the top teams in the Soviet league.

    After a bit of playing around, I discovered it was a clash with the winter update! Just in case anyone was having any issues!

    either you have loaded files from some other database or you didn't put and load all 6 core files

    I have the same problem as Moore.... I can't see East Germany as nation and although the flags changed I still have Croatia,Ukraine.....
  • mbarbaric's avatar
    just downloaded it and unzipped with no problem. please use 7z link provided above in the thread
  • Teabs's avatar
    When I try to unrar this file it fails because of errors.
  • mbarbaric's avatar
    sorry to hear that i just loaded the new game and it works fine. please check if you have all the core files - International competitions, European cups, USSR, CZE, EGER and YUG
  • Moore's avatar
    Oh, and also, I can't seem to see East Germany as a nation when setting up a game... don't know why...
  • Moore's avatar
    I don't. It was the first db I downloaded and the only one I have, really. Btw, I'm using 16.2 version. Any way really to solve this? :/
  • mbarbaric's avatar
    that is strange. are you sure you don't have some other editor files included in your game? this should absolutely not happen in the db provided above.

    I'm having a problem: I load a new game but Soviet Union and Yugoslavia's leagues don't appear to have the big teams.
    In Yugoslavia's situation, the 1st league has: BASK, Hajduk Veljko, Kolubara (and so on);
    URSS has: Arsenal Tula, Baltika, Dinamo Leninegrad (and so on). How do I get this to work, really?

    Thank you, I really look forward to play this.

    you need to load all the files but you can use only yugoslavia to play with. there will still be all other nations in the game obviously. yugoslavia on it's own just wouldn't work as it is all tied in.

    Is it possible to only add Yugoslavia? Without the rest?
