Football Manager 2021 Data Updates - Wonderkids 2021 by JG - V1.1 - (Final Version, now discontinued)

Hello and welcome!

As promised, here is an FM21 version of my popular Wonderkids 2020 database from last year!

Hey, alright, so it's official - I will be discontinuing this database. As mentioned, SirTAVARES Data Tweaks has more or less the same wonderkids that I do, and arguably of a higher quality, at least in some areas. Plus, he has like, 500+ new players, I simply don't have the time to compete with that, plus all the other corrections his file makes. I will be contributing to the wonderkid aspect of his file with my time and energy, and I will leave this one up, but don't expect further updates.
It's been a fun time nonetheless, thank you to all who have supported this file, it's been fun!

About the database

This database will be a file simply adding young players into the game. Most will be U16 players, but the occasional player up to 23 may find their way in, if I feel they were unfairly left out of the base game. In the download, a facepack, and an excel sheet are also included, but more on that a little later

As you might imagine, it can be quite hard to find data on young players, especially in England. Therefore, while all players are recreated to the best of my abilities, there will almost certainly be errors here and there. However, if you're more knowledgeable than I, do feel free to leave a comment, and I'll correct it in the next update!

How to install

  • Put the "FM21 - New Wonderkids V1.1" file in: "Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\editor data"
  • Put the "Faces" folder in: "Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\graphics\faces"

In order to see every single added player, you need to be sure to load the league they play in when you create your save game. For example, to load Marcel Mendes-Dudzinski, who plays in the Polish league, you need to be sure to load this league, either as playable, or manually through the custom database settings.

If/When the faces don't match the players

For the faces provided, I have named them so that ideally, they should load in like they have to. However, if you're like me, and play with a ton of database mods, they're almost definitly not going to match, as the other databases also add players, so the Unique ID's no longer match. So in order to fix this, you need to rename the files so they match the new Unique ID's. Luckily, a tool called Bulk Rename Utility exsist to make this easy. To determine what to name the files, find Luka Romero in your game. His ID will be something like 2000086547. So to rename them, just follow it down, as such:

2000086547 (old id) Luka Romero => 2000089678 (new id)
2000086548 (old id) Momodou Jaiteh => 2000089679 (+1)
2000086549 (old id) Amourrichio Van Axel Dongen => 2000089680 (+2)

The order of the ID's will never change, so the order they're in now, is also the order they will be in afterwards. After renaming everything, use the fmXML tool to create a new config file. Then reload your skin in-game, and enjoy your new faces!

If the above instructions weren't enough, here is a video showing how to do it. If you still can't figure it out... I'm sorry mate, but I don't think I can help you anymore then.

This video is for FM20, but the process is EXACTLY the same, only the UID values change, and the starting player is no longer Shane Kluivert, it is Luka Romero



Requesting new Wonderkids!

Requests by you guys will be the lifeblood of this database update, so please do! However, I want to maintain a certain quality, so if I can't find an at least halfway-decent image of the players face, he will not be added. Therefore, when requesting, I want at least a name, club and position, and ideally a picture as well! Well, ideally as much info as you can possibly find really, but I'll take what I can get!

    @SirTAVARES, why being so rude? 'This says a lot', what does it say then? With files of others I mean if someone created wonderkids that he/she wants to include in the pack, I'm willing to help out if the 'owners' of the content all agree. I'm just trying to be helpful and I refer to Sortitoutsi because I'm more active on that platform with creating downloads (Standard Kits and 3D kits mostly), so I won't see the messages here that often.

    "PM me on Sortitoutsi if you want to work on this, I might be willing to do some tweaks to the existing players or add players from FMF files of others, "

    This says a lot :D
  • wfm18's avatar
    Sad to see no one is working on this file anymore. I see there are still some good tweaks to be made. For example Rijkhoff is still a youth player at Ajax and will leave 01/07/2021 for Dortmund, instead of playing at Dortmund right now already. Players also miss for example that Rijkhoff is educated at Ajax, which in the end will lead to money flowing to Ajax in future transfers (albeit very small amounts, it is still realistic)

    I understand there is a different file that does the same or better, but it's paid and I think that is not how the community should work (all my files on Sortitoutsi are free and I don't want contribution).

    PM me on Sortitoutsi if you want to work on this, I might be willing to do some tweaks to the existing players or add players from FMF files of others, Only of course if @GfxJG is fine with that.

    @VokeFM: ...Do you not read? It very clearly says discontinued, even in the title.

    New update is out!

    For the record, further development is put on hold for the time being. I've discovered that SirTavares' Data Tweaks file covers much of the same wonderkids to a similar quality, and frankly, even I personally would rather use that one. I might end up contributing to his file instead if he so wants me to, and if he doesn't, I MIGHT continue this one. But on hold, for now.

    Mateusz Musiałowski - one of the greatest talents of Liverpool academy, is compared to Jamal Musiala in potential

    Oliwier Wojciechowski - One of the greatest talents in his position in Poland, already at the age of 14, he was interested in him, among others, Ajax Amsterdam

    @GfxJG Yes, I have checked before and these players I have not found, maybe I wrote wrong the name.
    Thank you
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @pfg10: I suggest you double check which players are already in the file before making requests, Bardghji for example has been in it since it's release in December :-)
  • pfg10's avatar
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @dastrokes: So he has, missed that! Will add!
  • dastrokes's avatar
    @GfxJG, looking forward to the update, thanks for your hard work.
    Also a small update: Julian Rijkhoff has joined Dortmund IRL.
  • GfxJG's avatar
    Also, to everyone who asks: I'm running the 10-year SIM of the next update now, so if nothing looks totally whack, it should be out tomorrow or thursday :-)
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @dastrokes: Ah, I see. Well that's just plain unfair lol. But regardless, I'll make sure to fix that in the next update, no issue :-)
  • dastrokes's avatar
    I had a quick look actually he's already in default db, name with Słonina instead of Slonina
    1
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @MarcinVeb: I just double checked, Slonina is not double added. If he occurs twice, it's because you have another database add-on that also adds him :-) That is not something I can change though, then you'll have to choose one or the other, or manually alter the files yourself :-)
  • MarcinVeb's avatar
    Hi, I found a tiny bug... Gabriel Slonina Chicago Fire is double added ;) You make a capital case with this addition. When will the next lineup update appear, because I don't know whether to wait or start again ;)

  • GfxJG's avatar
    @dastrokes: He's already in the next update, had already spotted him ;-)

    Would be a good addition, just made his debut.
  • Mikynkat171's avatar
    @GfxJG my mistake sorry I must thinking of another database I’ve downloaded again sorry
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @Mikynkat171: ...Shane Kluivert doesn't exist in this pack, what on earth are you talking about? I'm not sure what you're doing wrong, but you're doing something very, very wrong. Download the .zip file from the link above, not anywhere else. All faces are included. You must be downloading the wrong file somehow.
  • Mikynkat171's avatar
    @GfxJG how many faces is there included in the pack please as I have re downloaded and still missing faces ie Shane kluivert and some more any ideas please
  • GfxJG's avatar
    @Mikynkat171: I just checked the file available for download, all images are there. Try re-downloading it :-)
