As of version 2.02 there have been a number of changes to some of the in-game purchases in Soccer Manager 2016.
We have now clearly identified “speed ups”, with all in-game purchase options having been unified with a new button which look like this:
When this button is seen, it means that this is a way to speed up normal game play using SM Credits.
The following speed ups are available in Soccer Manager 2016:
Quick Finish Facility Build
When upgrading your club’s facilities such as Medical Centre or Youth Academy. After having the upgrade request agreed the normal completion time is 6 months per upgrade.
The Finish Now speed up will allow instant completion for 200 SM Credits.
Accessible through your Scouting Network. You can send your club scouts out to scour the world for players, players to have an immediate impact on your club or discover the next generation of superstars.
If you don’t have time to wait for the scout to return with their report because you are in the last week of the transfer window for example, you can use the Finish Now for 200 SM Credits to return the scout immediately with a full report.
Reveal Player Potential
For the cost of 100 SM Credits per player, you can take the risk out of releasing youth promotions or target your transfers to raising stars by using Reveal Potential Rating. This will display the Players Predicted Rating at the end of the season and the Predicted Max Rating for their career but this maximum rating may change slightly based on game time and training routines.
If your star player has suffered a season ending injury or even a slight knock to miss the local derby, then you can send them off to a specialist to be instantly healed and ready to play for 500 SM Credits.
The ultimate cheat – immediately sign your favourite player for your club, anytime inside or outside the transfer windows by using Sign Player. The cost of which is a calculation based on the player’s current rating, age and potential. The existing wage of the player will be added to your club’s weekly wage bill.
There are some limitations on who can be purchased with this cheat though. You cannot buy a player:
- Aged 21 and under;
- Currently on loan;
- If you have reached your squad cap of 100 players;
- If you have already confirmed a transfer deal outside of the transfer window;
- If a deal has been agreed between other clubs;
- If they are respawned.
Boost Morale/Boost Condition
If you are having a bad run of games or your players are feeling tired / not at their best, then you can give the team a pre-match boost by using either Boost Morale or Boost Condition to have them playing at their best for 200 SM Credits. Both options will raise either the morale or condition of your entire squad.
