I started a project for myself. In real life Belgium has 9 levels of competition. In the 4 lowest levels there are a lot of leagues and teams. Project = update the data file to have more or less the similar competitions in Belgium. In fact something like in “falsobohemio” but a lot closer to reality, because in his fmf-file from Belgium there are some serious deviations from the real stuff (with all my respect “falsobohemio”, because I looked how you did to make my file).

Result
I created 8 levels instead of 9 because there are a lot of teams that are not in the database (did not want to spend the time to create them all).
From level 1 to 5 : correct number of teams in correct number of leagues and the correct teams. Level 6 : correct number of teams and correct teams but 8 instead of 10 leagues.
Level 7 & 8 : rest of the teams that are in the database + some extra. All teams are real teams that play in level 7,8 or 9 in Belgium and most of the level-7-teams play in level 7. Number of teams per league is not the same as in real life.

For promotion and relegation
Level 1 & 2 : like real life; from level 3 and lower : left out play-offs to have a clearer view on it and would have been a lot of (difficult) work. Anyway, in Belgium they make it too complicated, so now it’s very clear also for people that are not from Belgium.
In level 8 (18 leagues at same level) : minimum 18 teams per league. Possibility to add clubs (maximum 20 per league) and no relegations  then you have to validate again (see further)

All levels are playable and I am happy with the result; fmf-file is validated !
If anyone is interested let me know...., or how can I make it public ?

TWO QUESTIONS
1. EACH TIME I CHANGE/ADD SOMETHING IN THAT FILE I HAVE TO VALIDATE AGAIN !
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT TO DO TO AVOID THAT WHEN YOU MAKE MINOR CHANGES LIKE COLOURS,ETC.

2. IS THERE A WAY TO GIVE IT TO THE CREATORS OF FM SO THEY WOULD UPGRADE AND INTRODUCE IT IN THE GAME FROM NEXT YEAR ON ? IF YES, HOW ?
can you send me the .fmf file i want to try it with fm 24
