FM 2013 Data Updates - Legends database: A mix of the old and new
Ever wondered what the world of football would be like if the likes of Pele and Maradona were still playing? Well this database gives you a chance to find out as it contains over 100 legends of the past and fairly new legends such as Didier Drogba.

Legends such as the following are all present in this database:

Diego Maradona
Eric Cantona
Luis Figo
Fat Ronaldo

To create this database, I downloaded an old database I found and completely revamped it, making thousand of changes due to how inaccurate I felt it was. This is a BETA version of the database. I would like to see how everyone finds it and hopefully people can suggest players to add and ways to improve. This will be updated from time to time.

Released: 21 August 2013 - 1.0

A few league changes have taken place, such as Leeds United being placed in the premier league.

How this works?

The legends have been placed in one of their previous teams. Also their ages are picked according to when they were at the club and playing at a very high level (performances). Some of you may agree with the teams I've chosen for the players but you must bare in mind, the teams have to be as equal as possible if not, a certain team would be a lot more dominant than others. The squads are not just filled with legends but today's players too. That way I felt the database would be a lot more fun.

How to install it

Step 1

Extract the downloaded zip file.

Step 2

Open the "Files" folder.
Then move the .dbc file you need in your Football Manager 2013 editor data folder:

Win Vista/7: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2013\editor data\
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2013\editor data\
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2013/editor data/

Create the folder editor data if it doesn't exist.
Step 3

Start a new game.

In case you have more editor data files: When setting up a new game, do not have any other data update files ticked on your Editor Data Files screen except this one or else the whole database will be messed up.

If you have any other questions or want to contact me regarding the database , you can always send me a PM.

Enjoy :)

    Just a few questions. Is there a list of the legends you have created? Is this database compatible for FM14? How do I import the legends into the FM14 database? I hope someone can answer these questions to begin with. Thank you in advance.
