Football Manager 2011 skin I use

Posted: 29 Nov 2010 03:56 AM PST

My Football Manager 2011 skin

Short post today, my dear readers. Just want to share the skin I use in Football Manager 2011. It's created from the dark skin of Michael Murray with my slight but significant changes:

- Changed colours:

Orange, green, yellow and grey colours were selected by me to underline difference between attribute values of players and staff.

- Changed attributes thresholds:

You will have 18, 15, 11 threshold instead of 15, 10, 5. It means that all attribute values higher than 17 will be drawn with orange colour. It helps to understand player's quality more quickly – this idea came out of my personal user experience.

Download Football Manager 2011 skin


FM 2011 skin installation steps

1. Unpack the RAR file using 7-Zip or WinRar.
2. Copy its unpacked content to folder "skins" subfolder of your Football Manager "user data" folder (if "skins" folder doesn't exist - create it!).
3. For being able to see kits from installed pack you must have the following settings in FM 2011 Preferences:
- Use Skin Cache = Off
- Always Reload Skin on Confirm = On


P.S. Next post will be about first results of Deportivo I manage in La Liga.
