Leaving aside whether the terms are suitable for the current world, some of the "development states" (Developed, Developing, Third World) of nations didn't look quite right to me - Botswana, for example, bearing little resemblance to the cheerful afternoon novels of Alexander McCall Smith - so I've gone through the nations in the database and compared them to their HDI (Human Development Index) score, resulting in these suggested changes:

"Pedantic makes perfect". That's what I say anyway :D I only stopped working on the Starter Kit when it got to the stage where it was pretty much unbreakable by even the least techy of users :lol: anyway, Steve Harle is a huge pedant himself, so he'll welcome you with open arms!

Review of National rivalries with suggestions

Real rivalries


Anguilla add St Kitts & Nevis
Antigua and Barbuda add St Kitts & Nevis
St Kitts & Nevis add Anguilla and Antigua & Barbuda
Australia - worth swapping out England for Japan now Oz is 'in Asia'? The rivalry with England is more of a crappy sports (cricket, rugby) thing
Central African Republic add Cameroon and the two Congos
Greece have FYR Macedonia as rival, which I think is the inactive one, swap for North Macedonia
Netherlands - should Portugal be considered for one of the slots (maybe rather than Italy) after the kung-foo-tball game at World Cup 2006? Vice versa for Portugal?
Romania - swap Slovenia out for Russia
Peru have a slot free, apparently US based Peruvians and US based Mexicans have created a bit of a rivalry with Central Americans, add Mexico
Mexico - replace Honduras with Argentina
Costa Rica - I think they have more of a rivalry with Guatemala than Panama
United States - swap out Cuba for Russia


Convenient rivalries
Liechtenstein - trade the big nations for Luxembourg, Andorra, San Marino?
Luxembourg - do likewise?
Malta have no rivals - Italy, Andorra, San Marino?
San Marino only have Italy, add Malta and Andorra so they have some other crappy teams to get excited about facing
Venezuela add Ecuador and Bolivia - not anything big historically just makes the 'who's the sh!ttiest team in South America' fight a bit more tasty
Laos - add Vietnam
Mongolia - add Russia
Bangladesh - add Pakistan, Sri Lanka


Rivalries to spice things up a bit in the Caribbean
Aruba add Jamaica (oooh I wanna take ya), Curacao
Bahamas add Bermuda, Caymans, Barbados (who's gonna save you the most tax? we are, we are!)
Barbados add Bahams, Bermuda, Caymans (where's the best place for your private yacht? right here, right here)
Bermuda add Bahamas, Caymans, Barbados (who provides the most opaque company structure? we do, we do)
Caymans add Bermuda, Bahamas, Barbados
Cuba add Bahamas and Bermuda - imperialist dogs
Dominica - the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Puerto Rico
Grenada - St Vincent, Trinidad, Barbados
St Lucia - St Vincent, Barbados, Dominica
St Vincent - St Lucia, Grenada Barbados
Surinam - add Netherlands
Turks and Caicos - even I don't care enough

For Nick's patcher, what are people using for the currency inflation to make it more realistic? Any recommendations?

That question should probably reside in Nick's Patch thread :ok:

Have a play around with it - maybe between 2 and 3

I have x2,5. That is somewhat realistic to me.

Can you explain why the Netherlands and Surinam should be rivals? I live in the Netherlands and I have Surinam parents. There is nothing like a rivalry between the two nations or whatsoever.

It was based on the Netherlands stealing all their best players. If you look at my headings you can see where I think the rivalries are real and where it is simply to give nations some rivalries - I think going back to odb, the Caribbean nations have no rivals

If this is to give the nations some rivalries, just because, then it's alright. But the Netherlands never really stole the best Surinam players. Wijnaldum, Van Dijk, Davids, Kluivert, Seedorf and so on, all chose to play for the Dutch team. And for the majority of the players, it wasn't even allowed to play for the Surinam team if you had a Dutch or a double passport. That is changed now, so players with Surinam roots born in the Netherlands, are eligible to play for the Surinam team.

Do they have any real rivalries that you know of?

Would it be possible to add a feature to the game where you can go on manager holiday and return on a certain date or once a job has been offered to you?

I know you can do it on the later games but it would be great on 01/02. Can you tell I get sacked often.... I say this after I've been sacked from Roma on the update... Good luck Jose Mourinho

About Australia rivals, I'd also suggest to swap Uruguay with South Korea. About USA - Cuba with Costa Rica.

I'd keep Uruguay, initially I was going to recommend that be removed as it related to their old qualification path, but if you read up on the history there is some very bad blood.

I chose Korea mainly because they had rivalry even before Socceroos moved to AFC and they belong to the same federation.
