Spring Update of Football Stars
We have two good news!
First, we decided to make another big expansion for FTG. We have even already started working on it. There’s a lot of groundwork to change the inner game’s structure in order to support planned mechanics. So it won’t be made soon.
We will tell you more details in about 2 months.
Second: today we want to please you with a small update for Football Stars that polishes some rough edges in the game.
List of improvements
- Fixed rare game crashes after the cutscene with the celebration of the win in a competition. Crashes happened due to the fact that you could click with the cursor while game data was loaded on a slow PC.
- If the goalkeeper of the AI team received a second yellow card, the AI replaced the goalkeeper, and 11 footballers remained on the pitch (there should have been 10). Fixed.
- Sometimes the AI would leave the goal empty if the goalkeeper earned a red card. Fixed.
- Now the AI will try to keep no more than one goalkeeper in substitutions. The rest of the goalkeepers will be sent to the second squad if there is room for them.
- Groups were formed incorrectly in continental tournaments. Teams will now be split into four baskets according to country rankings. Each group will have one random team from each basket.
- In continental qualifiers, pairs are now matched according to country rankings. The teams are divided into two baskets. A pair consists of teams from each basket. Previously, baskets were formed by the power of the teams.
- In the early stages of domestic cups, pairs of teams were sometimes formed incorrectly (the draw could put two teams from the lower league playing against each other). Fixed.
- Added the names of the footballers in the kick-off cut scene.
- Teams did not use abbreviations from the modifications in Hot Seat. Fixed.
- The ‘Attributes’ menu item in the gear menu in the match was removed. It was an unfinished feature that did nothing in the released version.
- On the experience earning screen after the match, the light was incorrectly illuminating the hair, making it darker than it should have been. Fixed.
- Some buttons were not displayed when the PS4 controller was connected. Fixed.
- Inaccuracies in French localization have been fixed.

By the way, in the next expansion, we plan to add new countries, including a new continent – Africa. You can help us a lot with this by adding data on those countries that you would like to see in the game. You will find more details by the link.
