People have been asking how they can help adding new countries to the game, and some have already helped. I’ve decided to create this topic to explain in detail all we need before adding a new country so those who want to help have a guideline. Keep in mind that from now on all leagues will have 20 teams, no matter how many teams they have in real life. You can provide as many leagues as you want for a given country, as long as they all have 20 teams. This is the current continent priority: South America, Europe, North America, others. This is what we need:

1) Country name
2) League(s) name. E.g.: Série A and Série B / Premiership and Divison 1 / Super Lig and Ligi A
3) National cup name. E.g.: Copa do Brasil / DFB Pokal / FA Cup
4) Teams names, 20 per division
5) Teams logos. If you could send logos with transparency, in png format with dimensions 25×25 (or anything x 25 like 18×25, 20×25, 23×25) we would really appreciate. If you don’t know how to transform the logos you find to this format you can send in whatever format you have and we’ll adjust it.
6) A list of common first names for this new country (it can be a simple text file with one name per line)
7) A list of common surnames for this new country (same format as above)

Send it to admins at rubysoccer dot com. The more information the better. If you can’t provide all 7 items in the list make sure you send at least items 1 to 5. There is no guarantee your country will be added in the following season, but we guarantee it will be added at some point.

These are the countries we already have either in the game or almost ready to go: Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile, Colombia, England, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Italy, France, Netherlands, Russia, Turkey, Greece, Sweden, Switzerland and Mexico.

Before you start working make sure to check and post in this topic which country you will be researching, so that 2 people don’t end up sending info for the same country.

Thank you!

OK, one question.

The list of names and surnames, how long at least it should be? Don’t know, a minimum of 100 names and surnames? 200? 50? 500?

I’m thinking in providing some other European league, kind of Denmark, Croatia, Poland or Sweden. I though about Scottish, but it seems it has been provided.

So, how long that list? Anyone that provided another league could tell me something?

Thanks

I think 200 is a good number, but the more the better. I need to verify which countries were supplied. We do have all name lists from ManagerSim, but apparently they’re not very accurate so any help is appreciated.

Regarding the order / priority, I suppose the order you mentioned is good: Denmark, Croatia, Poland and Sweden. Thanks a lot!

Just realized we’ve already got Sweden a while ago. Of course you can give your own suggestions, but that’s up to you.

Cheers.

Sweden would be a good idea yes, since there are a lot of Swedes active on online browser games (or at least in my experience).

OK, very near to send Denmark, 2 divisions, but I don’t Know how to convert logos background to transparency. I have ready the rest.

Working on Croatia.

One question. Does anyone sent you Belgium? I had forgotten when I said the list of countries, but Belgium is an interesting European league, too.

Thanks!

Oh, ok. How many team logos do you have? I have 40, do you need any new?

Danish names and surnames are in your power, too? I can provide it tomorrow

I think I have 40 too. We have names and surnames for all European countries, but they might not be accurate so any lists are welcome.

Cheers

is this topic still relevant? I’d like to help make Europe a bit more complete…I did so back in the day with SoccerSim so I have a vague idea what I’m doing :)

Yes, it is! I hope it continues to be relevant until we have all countries in the game ;-)
Will, I’ve sent you an in-game message to discuss this.

Thanks!

Just so everyone knows, I’ve started working on Europe, as a whole. I’ll keep posting updates in this thread as to which countries are done/being worked on. I doubt there’s anyone out there working on any countries as this is a pretty old thread, but my goal is to get Europe completed at least. If you’d like to help, let me know in game!

Meanwhile, he’s a map of the countries that have been done so far: http://imgur.com/JZB4r

UPDATE: http://imgur.com/18LiN

Almost all of Europe is completed.

Logos are needed for all the red countries in the image above. But League Names, Competitons, Leagues and Teams are all up-to-date and complete for most European nations.

Really nice work, Will. Hopefully after the economy changes we’ll be able to add some of the countries you’ve already sent me. We’ll see how AI teams adapt to the changes.

go for it at http://en.eufo.de/, they have great data.
logos:
http://uefaclubs.com/html/1.html
http://www.vflnet.com/

My favorite was hqfl.dk but it’s been down for ages, I think English clubs kept threatening them with court action so they closed the shop.
It was really great.

another twist to it could be a world with old football clubs and crests/logos and shirts etc..just a thought.
like a world with 1990 or so teams.. if it’s possible..

Will, well done.

The first link seems pretty good, BK. They even used the same source as us for the map and flags :-D
