Choose your preferred version

There are 2 versions included in this pack.

Version 1 - Increased Injury Frequency (realistic):
SI has stated:
Having anywhere from 1-9 injuries at a time would be considered normal, with an average of 4-6.
This is roughly 70-80% of reality.
This file has increased the number of injuries to be closer to reality. Testing by simulating seasons has resulted in 0-8 injuries at a time, an average of 1-4.
There will be more injuries overall, but the most common are a week or less of time out, and can be dealt with by protective equipment or injections, if you choose.

Version 2 - Reduced Injury Frequency:
This file is closer to the default injury frequency and makes it easier to manage injuries.

    another thing is that i'm getting the option to send them to a specialist for injuries of 5 days and 3 days ect i'm sure that ain't right i'm not sure if it's this file or it is just football manager it's self but i'm pretty sure i didn't see this before i tried this file

    I like this file … but there are some displaying glitches. for some injuries, when using specialist, sometimes their time out is showed as one day. but still he's out the regular time. so no Problem here

    @bumbisoft: Sorry you feel that way. It's not very kind to say in all caps to prevent others downloading, it is everyone's choice. Injuries are more realistic, at higher levels to real life, and many new common injuries. But FM also is a game, and will have it's flaws at really recreating the realism correctly all the time. This file will mean that keeping enough physios, high condition and fitness, keeping non-injury prone players, etc are necessary.

    The only tip I have for this pack is: don't download it. It is an absolute waste. Injuries are highly unrealistic and erratic. I see 3 players injured per game(even during preseason where each player played 45 mins). It ruined my save, thankfully only one season in. DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT.
