Introduction to SP Expansion

for smokepatch21 (PES 2021 only)

In the patch, the fake leagues are replaced with real leagues, many users like to have editable teams to create their preferred league, the expansions will give the users the ability to do that.

It will expand the patch capabilities to have a lot of customizations for the users and to have the ability to import the customized data into a newer version of the patch when it gets updated, users can share and coordinate their edits to create their own country league.

The default patch comes with predetermined leagues to replace the fake leagues in the game, as the patch does not keep any fake teams in these fake leagues, all teams and leagues are licensed and do not have much room for editing to create another league that is not present in the patch.

When the expansion files are applied, the patch will unlock several editable teams in a certain location, these teams are fully editable and contain 20 players with a default name (PLAYER ID#),


In-Game Editor:
everything can be done in the game editor, no external tools or editors needed, the use of expansion can only be used in the game editor so it will always be compatible and without any problems or errors.


What can be edited:
- team colors
- team kits (can also be added using kitserver addon)
- team settings
- game plan and tactics
- stadium model, name, and settings
- rivalries and banners
- all the players assigned to the team


What is made for the new league?
- the league sleeve badge already configured to show according to the competitions, the badge will show on the edited kits or kitserver kits.
- the league hidden settings are all correctly done, such as the team's preference of nationality when signing players and other settings are all done
- the names, short names, and high-quality emblems are done for the league and its teams.
- the league will participate in relative competitions, African teams will participate in Asian competitions.


Sharing and collaborating:
we will allow users to share their export files with others on the expansion pages, users who use the same league expansion can collaborate to create their country league and we will help as much as possible, a moderator will check the expansions every day.


Example:
to create a league that is not present in the default patch, like Shopee Liga (Indonesian league), you will need to install the Indonesian expansion to the patch, this will add 18 editable teams (minus any team present in the patch), these teams will be available in fake Asian league (by default occupied with Japan league), then you can edit the competition logo, name, settings, and everything you want, then create and edit the teams and the players of the Indonesian league.

that will result in a fully usable Shopee Liga (with the league cup and super-cup if possible), can be used in all modes including football life mode (ML-BL), the edits can be exported and imported in the event of patch updates.
