Paulv2k4 FIFA 19 Career Mod

This mod is now complete and will no longer be updated, unless EA updates the game.

This is a FIFA 19 Career Mode mod designed to improve the experience of managing your team at any level.
You will have to think a lot more about your finances, team morale, youth players and most importantly your board objectives.
A lot of the design decisions have been based off your favourite football management games and real life.

  • You lose a large amount of points for not achieving an objective
  • Reduced the occurance of money driven objectives for lower league teams (teams of lower club worth)

  • Increased Shirt Prices to be more realistic

  • Reserve/Young players are now happier from being selected once or twice
  • Only first 11 players get irritated by not being selected
  • Wage expectation has been risen to have players act more like their real conterparts (greedy & overpaid, causes starting morale to be low, dont worry)

Player Growth / Development

  • Teams will only release reserve players but that is very unlikely

Youth

  • Youth players are much more likely to have traits
  • Youth players height range is much more balanced
  • Youth squad can be up to 25 players
