    Wow! I'm incredibly happy reading this post @Foxy! This save and especially the GaM really caught my imagination and I'm delighted you got it across the line! I'll admit I didn't think you'd pull it off but the FMM God's were on your side in your final season! 
    It's mad that a mere 90 goals can somewhat overshadow your striker scoring well over 1200 goals! Yet that's what I love about Vibe as you never know what will connect with you, I've enjoyed every aspect of this career and smashing the 1kc is no easy feat! 
    I've doubted and believed at plenty of points along this journey and this is the first career in a long time that really captured that old magic for me, and the best part? You get to pass the torch to your son so he can now embark on his own journey! Who knew Foxy would be bringing the circle of life to Vibes career threads! 
    The only thing left to say is congratulations!

    I’ve tried both and it’s hard to tell the difference to be honest. They’re going to cross the ball a fair bit so its safe to say that they’re preferred foot should be on the outside, but then they’re going to cut in and play in through balls and the like which you could then argue that their preferred foot should be on the inside!

    scratch99 reacted to Foxy in Foxy Presents: Foxy's Fledgling - A Son 1Kc - Season 4   
    Thanks for all the comments lads and it turns out that 70 was a better total than I thought. Basically at some point during the Teutonic Treble I have lost track of the seasons and I thought I had played one extra season then I actually have. It came to light when Arp and Leon retired and it said they had completed an incredible 18 seasons at the club.
    This alters the maths a bit as it means I have 12 seasons left to play and that I need 65 goals a season to get to the 1k😆

    That is the most likely outcome for sure! 😄
    I should have counted offside goals, because I reckon he's going to get 1K of them too. 😂

    Hehe, 1.5K is the target now!
    I went back and looked at Colidio who finished on 1493 and after 8 seasons he only had 405 goals compared to Pinamonti's 578. Of course he was a couple of years younger, but even if I look at him after 10 seasons (when he was the same age as Pinamonti), he only had 571 (slightly less). 
    I think Pinamonti has got this! 😄

    The same for me it was a massive struggle keeping hold of Goretzka, Amiri and Arp in my save because they kept refusing to resign until the last minute and in fact I had to buy Amiri back at one point to carry on his challenge.

    Nice going! And great it's a 1KC too. 🙂  80s is not to be sniffed at. If he keep scoring like that for a couple more years, then he'll have no worries making it home! Keep going mate and good luck!

    Just need to make sure I remember to bring him on at HT in every game as I don't usually make HT subs.
    Finishing with just 1 time left will probably be how it will go just to be as frustrating as it can be!

    scratch99 got a reaction from Foxy in Research - How Deep Do Regens Go?   
    I never used to pay any attentions to regens, but in recent careers I've become more and more fascinated by how they work.
    A turning point was when I recently noticed that I was getting regens in my youth academy players. John Terry, Ashley Cole, Joe Cole, Andy Carroll and Gareth Barry all were reborn into my Newcastle youth team. And they were only the ones I noticed...
    I started wondering: What if all my youth players are regens of someone? And further: Is it possible that all new players in the game are actually regens, even those players in the lower leagues?
    Anyway, I set out with a very brief, not too scientific, test to see whether lesser retired players came back as regens. I fired up FMM 2018 in the Nox emulator on my PC (no way am I risking overwriting my 1KC with this test) and scouted out 3 players who were in their mid 30s and didn't have a club, so were likely to retire quickly. Then I holidayed through a year.
    2 of the 3 players retired within the first month. The other got picked up by a club and didn't retire at all. Of the 2 that retired, both came back as regens. Neither were true lower lower league players (I couldn't find any suitable candidates quickly), but they weren't weren't exactly top drawer either. Without further ado, I give you:
    Darius Henderson, who played for Watford and Sheffield United. He spent one season in the Premier League, the rest of his career was in the Championship and League 1. 


    Although he was mostly a lower league player in real life, he's come back via Man City's youth team. I can't check it, but I believe that the true PA will be the same in both players, so I expect he wouldn't make it at Man City if I kept going. 
    Next, we have Carl Baker, who never made it to the Premier League. He played in the Championship, League One and League Two for teams such as Coventry and MK Dons.


    He came back through the Southampton youth team, but was cut at the start of the season. 
    Both players were re-spawned some time in the first season, although I didn't start looking for them until the new season. Well I did check after the first month (when I noticed that they'd retired), but they hadn't appeared yet, so I went through to the end of the year. I have noticed some almost instant re-spawns in my 1KC though. And of course Ashley Cole seemed to retire a couple of seasons before he re-appeared in my youth team.
    I also find it interesting that although many attributes vary somewhat, the Leadership and Aggression ones always seem to be the same. Stamina and Strength are the same as well in the screenshots, but I think that's just coincidence, as those values will change more based on age and development etc.
    So there you go. I think that most, if not all, new players in the game are actually regens of someone else. It probably would be a good idea to test with some lower league players, but I think it will be the same.
    I could see how that would make sense to the game developers, as it would help keep the balance of the game. If new player generation were truly random, then things could get weird very quickly. By basing most new players in a country on the retired players from that country, it keeps roughly the same level of talent, the same number of players in each position, etc. I say roughly, because it's not always exactly the same. I've seen Kaka's regen's regen turn Argentinian, Ibrahimovic come back as an AML, ST instead of an ST, etc.
     Maybe some of you out there are going "uh, duh...", but I'd never considered how this worked and I found it interesting, so I figured I'd share in case it interests any of you.
