Andreas - Regions Question

One of the things I was hoping for was the ability to select a region and then have only players born in that region play for teams in that region.

I set up a test this morning, selecting Canadian for Nationality and Maritimes for Canadian Region. I notice though that players are from all over Canada?

Is this not possible what I'm trying to accomplish?

I also notice in the regions drop down you can select by province. If I select Nova Scotia as my region will I still get players from all over Canada?

Just to expand - my ultimate goal is to create a league in Nova Scotia and one in New Brunswick, then associate them so the league champions can meet. I'd like it so the NS league has only NS born players and NB league with only NB born players.

Damned. I just tested it, and you are right. It is a bug and will be fixed until Monday. Sorry

BTW guys - Cape Breton is part of Nova Scotia, not New Brunswick.

Possible to fix this?

Yes it is and you can do it yourself if your comfortable editing the world.xml and don't want to wait. It looks complicated, but it's actually quite simple. Make a backup of it first though just in case murphy's law takes effect.
Open it in notepad, turn word wrap on and locate
Code:
<CITY id="89972" name="Cape Breton" pop="102250" lid="0" lat="46.15" long="-60.17" abbr="CPB" />
and ctrl+x it (cut it)
Then locate Nova Scotia
Code:
<STATE id="683" name="Nova Scotia" pop="942506" lid="0" abbr="NS" time_zone="-4" observes_dst="1">
				<CITIES>
				<CITY id="2692" name="Amherst" pop="9336" lid="0" lat="45.83" long="-64.21" abbr="AMH" />
Paste cape breton in here somewhere or if you want to keep it in alphabetical order paste after the b's
				<CITY id="3247" name="Antigonish" pop="5003" lid="0" lat="45.62" long="-61.97" abbr="ANT" />
				<CITY id="8920" name="Berwick" pop="2271" lid="0" lat="45.03" long="-64.73" abbr="BER" />
				<CITY id="11678" name="Bridgetown" pop="1063" lid="0" lat="44.85" long="-65.15" abbr="BRI" />
Save and Cape Breton is now in Nova Scotia. Exit and restart the game and you should be all set.

I can confirm that this used to work as I had set up the Maritime league and had players only from the Maritimes.. So, I'm confident Markus will be able to fix it up quickly for us

Wait? What? You can fix the cities file and have it update an existing game???? When did that get fixed? That's been a sore spot forever!

To my knowledge, you can change the file all you want, but it will only affect a newly created league.

Ya, I'm comfortable editing the world.xml, just figured I'd point it out for correction so it defaults properly, thanks.

Your most likely right Solonor.
Spent my honeymoon up there back in May of 75 Blue, snowed like crazy. My uncle from Mass always took the Bluenose over. That where you got your screen name from??

I'll be glad to share the league once I get it ready.

Just fixed this in the master world db editor.

I still have quite a few other corrections to make to the wdb, as well, so a new xml file will probably be released with the non-pre-order release copy or the first patch, at the latest.
