FM Graphics: Czech Fantasy kit pack


Good graphics add-ons are essential of Football Manager for many years. It’s very important to me to have kits, faces or logos in the game correctly and during previous years I was also a member of some teams who create add-ons to the game.

During the FM17 I edited these graphics add-ons just mainly for myself or some friends as I created kits or I updated faces of some players in my long-term save.

When I ended my save with Reading FC after 24 virtual years I decided to fill the space between FM17 & FM18 with a save with AC Sparta Prague. Some time ago I bought some templates and I created my own kits for Reading or various clubs in the game I wanted to update or I wanted to try how these templates and editing in Photoshop work.

It ended with the whole kit pack for Czech 1st Division called HET liga right now. As I play with Sparta before FM18 and maybe I will play in Czech in FM18 as well I decided to create some kits for the highest Czech football division just for my save.

When I had four or five clubs I decided I will share this pack with all of you. And there it is.

The pack contains home and away kits for 16 clubs from Czech 1st division, only Sparta Prague have also the third kit but that’s only because I activated the third kit in the Pre-game Editor.

The kits were made for clubs which entered in the 2017/2018 season so if you start a new save in FM17 with the updated database you will have all clubs covered with these fantasy kits.

Kits aren’t designed same as in real life, I only kept the real colours of clubs…

Example from FM17

How to install?

  1. Download the folder and extract it with WinRar or 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX.
  2. Copy the extracted folder to \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\kits\(Create folders “graphics” and “kits” if they don’t exist already).If you will want to use it in FM18 just copy & paste all your graphical add-ons to the \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\graphics\kits
  3. Run your version of Football Manager and…

If you added the kits to the folder before you started FM the kits should be in the game already.

If you added the kits when your FM was turned on already go to Preferences > Interface

Make sure that you tick the check box on the page called ‘Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences’ and un-tick then box saying ‘Use caching to decrease page loading times’.

Hit Confirm.

There will be a box that pops up saying ‘loading image data for the new skin’. Once this is done your graphics should be working within the game.

One last note: If you already have some kit packs and you are not able to see this kits in the game despite you made everything alright, just rename the folder to „1aCzechFantasyKitpack“. The „graphics“ folder has alphabetical sorting and that’s the reason why the previous kits are in the game.
