Can Someone Tell Me Why Modding Has Died With FIFA 17?

Did EA change the file format or protection or something? We got nothing for this game 5 months after release.

The engine of the game has changed from Ignite to Frostbite and it's structure is completely different, so we can't use the same tools and modding process than other years. In fact we are only able to export some particular stuff and only in some cases import it to a different FIFA version, but it's completely impossible to edit that stuff and then import it back to the game this year. It is also possible to edit the database in order to insert new teams and players.

It is not possible to edit the database. It is possible to edit squads files, but the scope of things we can do is rather limited and this kind of modding has proven very buggy.
Inserting new teams is not possible. As I understand, it is only possible to "uncover" the teams "hidden" in the game archives but not included in the database, as in a few Chinese teams and placeholders for the Brazilian teams EA couldn't get rights for.

You're asking this after 6 months? xD

Anyway, yeah, modding FiFA is over, forever. Frostbite killed modding. Rest in Pieces FiFA

If not I will do my own investigation and will show no mercy for the unfortunate soul. I already have a list of suspects.

Something I had the most fun of has gone. After 14 years of modding footy game there is nothing to do with it. I'm not sure it will be back again, even though Frostbite will be changed to anything different in 3,4 years.

No.


After 3 years, next version of Frostbite will get released. And it will continue forever.

Sami, don't be apocalyptic man.

FIFA and PES community have always been able to come up with the knowledge and therefore tools to crack every new engine and file format.

I think, what's lacking right now is free time from the master minds.
You probably weren't even around but back in the day, FIFA 2001-2003 file formats were very different. Then EA changed them for FIFA 2004-2007 and guess what? The community did it again. And again in 2012 with the 'Next Gen' release for PC.

The difference is that back then, Ariel, Rinaldo, Scouser, and many other that aren't even around anymore had a lot more free time (and were a lot younger too LOL) to spend trying to crack it open.

But eventually, they will do it. Or someone else we don't even know about yet will. The Messiah, lol. Belive.

Maybe for FiFA 18.

But so far, modding is dead. Not that I want it to, and part of me still has hope for modding returning. But then again, looks like no one's on to crack the code. Is EA silently stopping the modders?

Before we know it, the community will be up and running full speed again.
All it takes is one big breakthrough and then it will all begin.

Malloc was making huge progress, he already had a way to inject new content into the demo, unfortunately the final release was a bit different but he was working on it and then went radio silent in October
