Your Feature – Round 6

Apr 05 2011

Now it's your turn to decide what feature belongs in FIFA MANAGER. The sixth round of "Your Feature" is live and you can vote yet another feature into the game. More than 4,400 users have already been participating in this community driven campaign and we also want your vote!

After the fifth round came to an end last weekend, with feature E) "Last 24 hours of the transfer period" being the winner, we will waste no time and immediately start the next round with more of your great feature suggestions. This week's five feature suggestions have again been selected from the Thread of Wishes, a forum thread with the sole purpose to collect your ideas for new features.

Round 6

Here are the next candidates; five feature ideas – all taken from the Thread of Wishes. The thread is still open and we are anxious to read more about your new ideas and feature suggestions:

A) Training goals
We integrate the option “adopt for all players”, “adopt for all goal keepers”, “adopt for all defenders”, “adopt for all midfielders”, “adopt for all forwards”. This will extremely accelerate the setting of the training goals.

B) Generated player heads in the line-up screen
We’ll put an end to the uniform player heads in the lineup screens by using the 3d heads instead. However, this is not so easy to implement as it may sound. Especially since the conversion of 3d faces in the middle of the game is time-consuming and drastically slows down the build-up of the screens.

C) European Cup statistics
We integrate all-time for appearances and goals in international competitions as well as a respective set of statistics.

D) Trial Day
The chance for every hobby footballer! Everyone who is convinced he is a talented player can sign up for this. You select various exercises in order to sort the wheat from the chaff and determine which player might actually have a real chance as a professional footballer. Chase them up and down the stadium stairs or let them push medicine balls. Your assistant coach is looking forward to this day for the whole year.

E) Reactivate Live-Training
A very old feature from Total Club Manager 04. Each week, you have the option to conduct a single training unit on your own and to determine all the exercises that will be part of this session. But be careful and don’t get them overpowered or your players may revolt.

We are eager to find out which feature will win this time in “Your Feature” – Round 6.

What exactly is "Your Feature"?

This year marks the start of a very special and unique experiment in the history of FIFA MANAGER. For the first time YOU can suggest features that we will implement in the game. The FIFA MANAGER community has the chance to directly influence parts of the game. These are the three steps:

Step 1: Collecting your whishes
We opened a Thread of Whishes in our forum where you can post your suggestions for future features. Ideally are small and mid-size features/improvements – the more detailed the description the better!

Step 2: Voting
In each round we will select up to five of the features you posted in the Thread of Wishes and put them up for vote. The feature that receives the most votes will be programmed and implemented in the game. The losers of each poll (if they only get few votes) will drop out, places two and three will get up to two more chances in upcoming polls, of course depending on the quality of new ideas in the Thread of Wishes. If you are the author of a successful feature that will be implemented in FIFA MANAGER you will receive a huge FIFA MANAGER 12 fan pack shortly after the game’s release.

Step 3: Programming
Directly after the poll closes the work on the winning feature will start. We will keep you up-to-date in a respective Thread of Fulfilment, where we will also post screenshots of the new features. You have the chance to comment on these screens and accompany the whole feature-creation-process from day one.
