Thanks for the help, setting the minimal youth age solved the problem.
However, i'm still wrstling with the second problem.
I changed the nations economic and federation power to 20, i set the clubs some quite decent stadiums and full attendance, i set the ticket prices to 40 pounds and season tickets to 450 pounds, quite healthy starting balances as well, but clubs still have big debts 4-5 seasons in the game and eventually downgrade their facilities and sell all their good players (unless the club has a foreground Sugar Daddy).
How can i solve this problem?
only thing i can think of that might help is adding/ changing prize money/ tv money.
I'm a long-time editor but I rarely post much on here.
Recently in my base editor file I've attempted to put Kazakhstan and Israel back into to Asia by swapping them with Northern Marianas and Guam. I swapped over everything (I think), the players, teams, cities, competitions, national team info but now when I try to start a new game in FM it gets to about 1/3rd through the "loading game database" loading screen then stops loading or crashes entirely. It's definitely something to do with the editor file and I'm thinking it's got to do with swapping the nations over as it was working fine before that.
Alright, well I simply don't know how to update the database after I make my changes. Is it possible at a game that's currently running (I assume that's an obvious yes, but I'm new to the whole thing so I miss obvious stuff often).
