DEV NEWS – More Modding Features

May 19, 2017 | 0 comments

Modifications support is one of the very important parts of Football Tactics. However, there were two problems which decreased the fun of using the modifications:

  1. You weren’t able to set up the important footballers’ details (change attributes, select skills etc) because it might break the game’s balance
  2. You always started in the Amateur league even you chose Barcelona. All your footballers’ data were dismissed to keep the game balanced.

In the next update, all these problems will be solved.

 

Deeper modifications support

Earlier you could change only four footballers’ settings: name, age, shirt number, face.

Now, we will add much more:

  • footballer’s specialization (class)
  • attributes
  • level
  • skills
  • level of the specialization

Also, now you will be able to add more footballers to the teams. So now the teams can have up to 32 footballers.

As always, we pay a lot of attention to the usability of editing the teams. And we understand that when a footballer changes the club, it might be tedious to reflect these changes in the modification. So we added a great feature: copy/pasting the footballer’s settings. It will allow you easily move the footballers between clubs in few clicks.

 

New game mode: Start in the higher leagues

If you want to get the most from the downloaded mods, you should start a new campaign in the “Higher leagues” mode.

It disables the achievements. But! It loads all information from the modifications: age, attributes, skills etc.

So you will be able either create and play with realistic leagues and clubs or experiment with something unique. For example, create all teams equally weak or strong and see how they are developing.

 

Beta-testing

We are going to start a closed beta-test of the new update in around 2-3 weeks. We have enough players who will be given the access to. But if you are an author of a modification, and you would like to upgrade it before the update is released, write me in Discord. I’ll contact you when the beta-test is started.
