This has been an issue for as long as I've been playing (so, at least since v14). Somewhere in the game's programming, it is able to pick up city and country, but not state of birth. The number of players who import incorrectly on this account is in the thousands.

Point being: the problem is not the database.

the problem stems from the world.dat file. there are thousands of unincluded cities that birthed mlb players and even more if minor league players are included

That's true as far as it goes, but there's another level to the problem. The Bloomington thing mentioned above is an example, but another big one is the two large cities named Pasadena -- one in Texas, one in California. More baseball players were born in Pasadena, California, but anytime you import one, no matter which state they have listed in the database, they will ALWAYS, UNFAILINGLY import as being from Pasadena, Texas. I have reported this at least twice myself to no avail. There might as well not even BE a state field on the database for all that it gets pinged.

Not to mention cities that have parentheticals (e.g., the two Mountain Views in California). Those get ignored entirely.

all these issues were created when ootp went to the xml based world file, they did not exist in the old csv version. that one worked perfectly. states mattered and every city was included
