Football Manager 2018 Data Updates - More Realistic Transfers for FM18

I did some intensive work to improve transfer preferences of all playable nations and many other inactive ones.

More specifically I've done the following changes:
  • 50+ for clubs
  • 1500+ for competitions
  • 7400+ for nations

Applying this update should make transfers more realistic.

How to install the Transfer Preferences Update on FM18

1) Download the .fmf file.

2) Drag the file into your "Editor Data" folder. located at \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\editor data. If this folder doesn't exist, create it.

3) Open Football Manager 2018 and start a new career, In the top right of the screen, under "Database", make sure "CarlosVFerdinand_TranfPrefUpdate" is selected.

    I believe FMTU is the future of transfer updates. Anyone (with a free member account) can submit missing changes using a user friendly transfer wizard that's much easier to use than the pre-game editor. Then a team of admins approves the submitted changes. There are hundreds of changes added daily, while the downloadable update is repacked every morning. Check it out at

    Please describe all facts about this file in detail. We need a manageable overview of this file. Which countries, which leagues etc. What exactly does your file do?

    List everything on the file description.
