    I am trying to install some stadiums with a new id (so as not to replace a stadium that is already ingame). I change the file names to the new id, but the game crashes when I try to play on that stadium. Is there a way to change a stadium's id and make it playable?

    Is there a way to flip the sides the teams attack by default? The home team always attacks to the right in the first half, and the left in the second half. Is there a way to change that?

    Hi! You need to edit the second line of every glare.lnx file with a text editor. You have to change the id so that it matches id of the file name

    example: file name: glares_4_1_0.lnx ---> <particleEffect name="glares_4_1_0">

    Thanks! I thought it might have something to do with the glares files. I opened them, but could not locate the line. I guess I wasn't looking carefully.

    OK, it works! The stadium appears ingame, but for some reason it only has day matches, even if I set the time to night.

    No one has found the way to have night games with new id stadium added with CM16. You can play at night, but the lightening of the pitch do not work properly, it is all dark with almost no shadow like if they were no lights. You have to live with it (play only day games in those stadiums) or you can use the stadium server.

    When I set the game to be played at night it just gave me day lighting. I tried Stadium Server, but it doesn't work for me.
    Is there any way to somehow edit the stadium to give it an id, so it would work like custom stadiums that have their own ids? This is not really a game-breaker, but it still sucks.
    Or do those stadiums simply have no night graphics? The one I have installed is "Friends Arena".

    How to edit cameras on stadiums? Some cameras are far away like Watford or Etihad. Too far from pitch. I changed Zoom and height in DB and CM, but nothing happend.

    This is something I didn't try myself yet, but I planned to test, so let say it is a suggestion. 1) Extract a bcgameplay_ID.dat of a stadium with a close camera (ie: Vitality stadium) with CG File Explorer; 2) Rename the file to match the id of your stadium of interest; 3) Regenerate with the tool of your choice.

    Let me know if you try it.

    Hey folks,

    Posted this on another thread and I’ve had a good look through the forum but can’t find an answer.

    I’m trying to create a crowd for a stadium I made, but despite aligning the crowd correctly in blender and assigning it to a group, the seats and crowd always end up facing the wrong way. For example, I set the crowd to face the x axis in blender, but when I go to test in game it looks like it’s facing -y.

    Can anyone help?

    Did you display the normals? Are they pointing in the right direction in blender? Displaying the normals is a big help to set the accurate axis.

    Yeah I’ve checked it’s facing the right was using normals.

    Very frustrating.

    Here's a question. Is there any way to restore a stadium? The Al-Jayed (Kokoto) stadium in my game got "lost", probably during my attempts at installing stadiums (the files were replaced with incorrect ones). Is there any way to restore it?

    ^ Search for all files with the ID 149 inside your stadium, fx and crowdplacement folders (inside sceneassets) and delete them. Regenerate with the tool of your choice (ie: CM16) and your stadium will be back.
