FM 2020 Fantasy Scenarios - USA Level 9 for FM20 v2.0
This database has been updated.

After many days of figuring out the Football Manager pre-game editor, I have finally completed version 1 of my USA 9 tier pro/rel database for FM20. Along the way, I was helped out by these legends. Thank you so much.

This database took me about 3 months to plan and develop and has just under 7,400 changes. All teams are in the FM Database with the exception of one. I changed one as an homage to the inspiration to my story behind this database. Info on that coming soon.

If you want to edit the database yourself, please feel free to do that. Just know there are issues with the validation system and it will give you an error saying "There are only 23 of 24 teams for stage 0 in the USA Championship". This is normal and if you keep attempting to validate, it will eventually pass.

List of Changes

v1.0
- Created 9 tiers
- Created new cups

v2.0
- Revamped to fix issue with no Youth Intake
- Renamed United States Lower Leagues and National Lower Leagues to remove word Amateur
- Added Promotion Playoffs to United States Lower Leagues and National Lower Leagues

    Nic24 - The top 4 from the US Prem League will get into the CONCACAF Champions League already but I am working on a more robust version of that with more than the 16 teams it has now.

    But they will not be going to CL or EL as those are European only competitions.

    Is going the champion league /Europa league be an option in the future ??

    wmercado - Yeah I have pretty much confirmed this by moving the leagues and teams to Canada and had proper intakes. But there is a DB that someone created in USA that I looked at and it's doing intakes so trying to figure out the differences as well.

    shindig - That's interesting as I haven't seen that yet. I tried to mimic everything in English system including finances so I'd need to see further about those rules. The "Number#1" is a weird thing that I'm not sure on. I saw it once but then it reverted back so I thought it was the game and not the DB. But I could be wrong. If you can, can you send me your save file so I can test around?

    looking good so far - I started as a team in league two and immediately got a transfer embargo with no explanation, and the league has nothing listed for financial rules, except for when you don't comply. League One seems to say you can't make more than "Number#1% of projected income" so might be an issue if I get promoted, but I like the look of it and enjoying so far.

    FM Digi - I've been trying for hours now to figure this out in the editor. I saw your post on Editors hideaway and it seems like it is hard coded into the USA and the only solution would be to mark it extinct and recreate the whole country. I've also noticed that at the lower levels there are very few players being generated and available for scouting. Perhaps these are related. Would love to help you out in figuring out how to make this work because I think the DB has so much promise

    nicbar84 - Yes. It mimics the English way. No more drafts. Youth Intake is not working as something is hardcoded in the DB I think.

    Will this also change the transfer system in America, or is still the same?
