A Game of Thrones meets Football Manager – Part 3 – Major Improvement

A Game of Thrones meets Football Manager – Part 3 – Major Improvement

This is Chris Evans’ story about trying to make a custom database for Football Manager 2013 with a very strong hint of A Game of Thrones. This is the third part of his blog charting his progress.

Would I have started this project if I knew quite how much effort it would take to get it to the stage it is at right now? I most certainly would, it is going to be so rewarding to play a long-term game in the Game of Thrones-themed world that I have created within Football Manager 2013. It isn’t all the way there, I haven’t played in-game with this version of the custom file enough yet to make sure everything is working as intended, and I haven’t touched any team logos yet which is going to be something which I might struggle to sort out.

A Game of Thrones Meets Football Manager – Making Progress

This is the second part of my journey into making a Game of Thrones based custom database for Football Manager 2013 (part one is here). It might be a bit of a monster job trying to re-create just a small portion of George R. R. Martin’s world within the game, but it is a challenge I am determined to meet, despite being a bit of a novice when it comes to using the Football Manager editor. In this part of my journey, I make some big progress with the league structure in Westeros, the land that used to known as Wales.

Football Manager 2013 – The Verdict

Football Manager 2013 is, as the cliché goes, a tale of two halves. The first half is the traditional full-fat version of the game filled with team talks, copious amounts of media interaction and extensive scouting capabilities. The second half is a lightweight ‘Classic’ mode where the teams come out wearing a totally different strip and don’t have to worry about their manager pissing them off with poorly judged team talks and receive support from various challenges. In short, this years edition of Sports Interactive’s long running management sim offers and experience suitable to a much wider audience than ever before.

A Whole Heap of Football Manager 2013 Videos



The past two weeks have seen numerous video blogs from Sports Interactive’s Studio Director, Miles Jacobson where he explores some of the new features that will be present in Football Manager 2013. There is a wealth of information contained in these video blogs with changes to almost every aspect of the game detailed. The entire catalogue can be viewed here, they might take some time to go through if you haven’t watched any just yet. I recommend watching the videos about training and the changes to various competitions, though the chance to take part in the media activity surrounding transfer deadline day as detailed in today’s video (below the jump) sounds quite excellant.
