The reason I started this blog is because I want to spur a discussion around the tools you enjoy using, which features you're utilizing the most, and what you'd like to see next.
This will arm us with invaluable insight that we intend to use for developing new tools in the future.
Football Manager 2016 Editor ToolsI think it makes sense to go back just one year ago and see which apps you could have in your toolkit.
FM Real Time Editor (FMRTE)While we stopped supporting this tool since it turned premium back in 2011, we can't ignore the fact that it has been consistently the most popular choice before IGE was introduced.
Price: Free (Scout), 5 euro (Editor)
Official In-Game Editor (IGE)Sports Interactive saw a stream of lost profit in FMRTE and developed the official real time editor right inside the game as a paid download. It doesn't have as many features, but it has more than enough for most people.
Price: 4.5 euro
FM Editor Live (FMEL)One of our exclusive tools that had very bright potential when it was first released (back in FM13) with almost 900K views & close to 300K downloads. Sadly that potential was never fulfilled, as the lead developer has lacked the time and motivation to carry on ever since. The last 2 years it has arrived very late in the season (before summer). We're actively looking for new developers to continue this project.
MacAssistant RT (MART)MacAssistant started in 2012 as a scout only utility and added editing functionality for FM14. This tool is for Mac users only and always delivers the fastest updates. Being limited to Mac is holding it back from reaching a much wider audience.
Price: Free (Scout), 5.2 euro (Editor)
FM Wizard Editor (FMWE)This one made its debut last year. Based on the Scout Framework led by MacAssistant and FMEL. Minimal features but key ones, such as editing finances and player data. Hoping to see it return for FM17 with even more features.
Now I have 3 questions for you.
- Which real time editor have you tried before?
- Which one is your favorite and why?
- Which editing features you can't live without?
