Mustermann 23 Skin - v2.11 out now!

Lazy Dec 12, 2022 Last modified: 19 Mar 27,974 views 4,708 downloads

The most innovative skin ever created for Football Manager. A complete overhaul of the UI. Skin has been created by GIMN.

This is a light skin that takes a radical new approach to the original skin of Football Manager. Overview pages have all been overhauled completely, prioritising key information and reducing clutter. On the player profile there is more room for analytics and statistics to take a more 'Moneyball' approach when scouting for players.

The Mustermann skin adss a whole new level to skin creators and is built around the idea of graphical attributes being replaced by images to indicate if a player is excellent, good, average or poor in an area. Using the definitions provided in-game, you can change the thresholds for each definition via 'Skin Colours' in preferences. There is still a regular numerical attribute version for those not quite ready to make that leap.

The attributes have been split into the training groups that influence them so you can view a player's profile in the context of training.

The Touchline Tablet has also seen a complete revamp, and now it actually resembles a tablet. This will be the only way you are able to access information in-game. The Touchline Tablet has also been revamped - redesigned to actually resemble a tablet - and will be the only way you are able to access information in-game. In real life, although tablets are allowed, you rarely see them used by manager's during play as it takes their focus away from the game. Now you'll have to make that assessment, with the tablet obscuring the pitch and no longer having any transparency.
