in pes 18, teams cannot have more than 32 players as a maximum in the teams, many teams have near 40 players, these players are mostly youth players and are available as free agents.
in pes18, the game cannot handle the current number of players in the database, the player’s number is limited to around 20000 players only, the original SP21 database has 25000.
most players deleted have low rates from free agents.
in pes18, the game cannot handle the current number of teams in the database, the slots are limited to around 598 teams only (registrable in the edit file), the original SP21 database has 742.
most of the players from the removed teams can be found as free agents.
the leagues in pes18 are less than the newer games, some leagues are not available in SP18, famous teams from these leagues are moved to other teams, teams from brazil’s second division are removed.
in pes21 this league is located in the main database of the game, in all previous versions this league needs to be in a separate database level, this resulted in these teams missing some players especially players who play in a national team, meaning the players in these clubs that also play in a national team are not assigned to the club, this is to avoid duplications and bugs.
SP18 Addons compatibility:
this addon is compatible and can be used with v3 (around 97% of the ID are similar)
a newer face pack converted from a new game might be done, but that will take time due to the huge size of this addon.
this addon is pre-installed in v3, no need to apply this addon as it will be installed automatically with sp18 v3
the other addons should work fine, some will get new versions, be sure to read the details of the addon to have any needed information about the addon and its compatibility.
