This is an Early Alpha Legacy Mod version of the Career Realism Mod. Many improvements are on their way.

Current Features

Match simulation, League table and Goal Scorers 

  • Top teams will win the league with realistic points & goals scored
  • Top scorers and assisters are more realistic


  • Transfer Budgets
    • Substantially lowered the amount of transfer budget smaller teams have to be far more realistic
      • This in turn, helps the AI Transfer Market become more realistic


  • Loans
    • Adjusted loans so there are no more unrealistic random loans
  • Nationalities
    • English players very rarely leave England
    • Player movement between countries is based upon real-world data of player nationalities in each league
  • Free Agents
    • Free Agents wont just play for any team, there will be no more picking up gems from the Free Agent market with a poor team

    • The AI will actively replace all lost players
    • The AI will always want to improve their team
    • The AI is much less likely to stack in a position (WORK IN PROGRESS)

Player Search - GTN

  • Searching for players now reveals attributes much faster
  • GTN and Scouting find players much more suited to your team. No longer will a league 2 team find Sergio Aguero in their scout list!

  • Player Values have been adjusted to be more like

Player Growth (WORK IN PROGRESS)

How do I find out it is working?

1) When you load the game, the "Press Start" screen has a new (placeholder) background.
2) Start a new Career mode. If Newport County (In English League 2) has around 100k transfer budget, the mod is loaded.

Can I use this on an existing career?


- Improved match simulation logic to stop teams like PSG, Barcelona and Bayern Munich winning the league without defeat. This is likely the most balanced I can get this for the year.
- Improved AI transfer searching so you can now loan players out to lower leagues and as a lower league team, you can sell or loan out your players.
- Rebalanced the Youth System so a lower league team does not get an entire youth team of players with over 80 potential. - Added a "Press Start" placeholder graphic
- Lots of micro changes that you'd hardly notice
