Have you ever wondered how your game will look if you could focus your scouting on Africa or Asia instead of South America? Or even better if you can do it all at the same time? Are you in need to find new top striker like Lewandowski, Aubameyang, Adebayor, Drogba, or Forlan? Or maybe you are in the hunt for new Shinji Kagawa or Heung-min Son?
With thousands of changes made this is finally possible with Quality Regens & Club Affiliations Database for Football Manager 2020.
And don't jump into conclusions, you don't need to load hundreds of leagues, and more importantly, this small file won't slow your PC. Everything that I've done here was carefully made to bring more fun, and joy to all of you who were disappointed with how things worked out in FM20.
Things that I've changed:
- Club affiliations changes, some of them are built like a spiders web
- Soft tweaks to club finances
- Improved youth search, and facilities
- Additional languages set for multiple nations
update ver 2.0
Added affiliations, and revamped youth levels in countries:: Tanzania, Malawi, Madagascar, Bangladesh, Malawi, Cambodia, Kuwait, North Korea, Ethiopia, Namibia, Gambia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Cameroon, Mozambique,
Now you can take a look at regens - screens were taken in the 3rd season of the game - 2022 year. All players were developed in their home countries, not in big European clubs.
Now you can take a look at how some affiliations are set, you can also take it as a small guide on what options are important to set good affiliation. You can use it in the future during the game when you will ask the board to find you a feeder club.
How to install Quality Regens & Club Affiliations Database for FM20?
Put the "Quality Regens & Club Affiliations DB for FM20.fmf" file in: "Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\editor data"
Then when you're starting a new game make sure that this file is "ticked". It works perfectly with Football Manager 20.4 update.
Additional tips & tricks:1. When you're creating a manager give him one nationality from Africa for example Burkina Faso, the other one might be your preferable one. Of course, you can also make him Korean, Iranian, Ecuadorian, or whatever you prefer.
2. Add a few languages to your manager's resume, make him multilingual even if it might look unrealistic to know Japanese, and Suahili or Zulu.
3. When you will be deciding which league to play tick all neighboring countries.
4. Make sure to tick South Africa, Iran, and one of two: South Korea, India.
Then add at least one country from South America, preferably: Uruguay or Chile.
5. As for big countries like Brazil or Argentina, that's your decision to make if you need to pick one of them, but even if you don't tick them at all you will still see regens from those countries in the game.
6. European countries that you should be interested to tick: Poland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Croatia.
Set all leagues that you've decided to pick as "playable" not as "view only".

To open middle-east, most of people who are making databases are either allowing you to play in UAE or Kuwait, some in Bahrain, this was just my decision to allow players to pick at least one league in middle-east, probably many bored people will be up for challenge.
Also as National team they've played in 2018 WC, and they're medalists in Asian Cup in 2019. It's just useful tick Iran, South Korea, South Africa, add 7-9 leagues from Europe, 1-2 from South America. If you want also you can add some players from other nations. Set all leagues as playable and have fun. I've did saves when I'm starting unemployed and then I send manager to holiday for 2 years. It's fun way to start a hunt for job because choices are limited but also in the meantime so many talented regens are created in whole world.
Sorry I've wrote short of South Africa in my native language without thinking that it might be different in English
If you are playing the game without this file regens are born only in specific countries in Africa, and some of them even only in one or at the best two clubs per biggest countries. I think many gamers already know very well clubs like ASEC (Ivory Coast), Enugu (Nigeria), or ES (Tunisia).
But in real life those are not the only best clubs in Africa, Type this in google: 2019–20 CAF Champions League - go to wikipedia page, and then after some text you will see big map of Africa with about 50 club names. And it's not like they don't have rivals in their own leagues so... in my opinion I've made much more realistic databes which allows regens to show in much many other teams. And this is happening even without unlocking/adding all leagues in Africa or Asia.
As for improving quality of regens I would only say the gap between best teams and weakest teams is now smaller.
