How to use Nik33's Data Packs on FM23

Extract the contents of the downloaded .zip archive to get the individual .fmf files.

Move the ones you want to your "editor data" folder, which is located by default at:
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2023 > editor data
If the folder doesn't exist, you need to create it yourself.

Start a new career save and make sure to select the files you need from the list (when selecting the database, before Advanced Setup).

    I don't understand why there's "dialects" and not have different gaelic varieties in this pack, like the Manx Gaelic for Isle of man and scottish gaelic for Scotland alongside the default english (plus Irish Gaelic). Also there's loads of different launguages for india but you only added one in. (Alongside the default three that's already there) (And there's Cornish which could've been added to cornish towns)

    Hi Nik33,

    I think those extra languages for Germany do not make sense. "Central German" and others are only dialects, that are mostly understandable by each other and all "High German" speaking people.

    I think you should remove "German dialects" completely as it does not make any sense and is not realistic to send each player to learn "High German" and a second language depending on the location of the club (for ex. "Central German"). They all will be learn "High German" IRL when going to some course.
