With the new Update out you can only expand by 1 team so each year you expand by 1 team until what 36 teams?

No, the 1-team expansion is the only the first time, then you expand by two teams per expansion up to 36 teams.

Am I missing something or is it still only possible to expand after the entry draft, meaning this feature is still unplayably unrealistic?

Unfortunately it's the only way it works right now. Expansion can only be done only July 1st because that's when the new league year sets, and moving the Entry Draft isn't something that is going to get done right now. Long term, I think it's something we'd like to look at (as I believe it has been mentioned before) but it won't be changing now.

Expansion Draft screws up AHL and ECHL

Dear All,

I am really enjoying FHM4, though I have encountered a problem, when I run an expansion draft the following seasons AHL and ECHL league stop playing and continue to fail to come back up afterwards. Any ideas on how to resolve it?

John

That definitely shouldn't be happening - could you upload your save so we can have a look at it? The instructions for doing so are at http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/boar...55&postcount=2

Thanks - yeah, there's definitely something going wrong there, most likely the schedule breaking after one of the expansions. We made some changes to the post-expansion scheduler in the new update, so it may have been fixed already, but we'll make sure it's working for the minor leagues as well.

Is it Possible to expand by 1 team instead of 2 after the first year. I only want 32 teams rather then 33

No, sorry, once the first one-team expansion is done, it goes 2 at a time.

also as far as moving teams around goes i know the teams have to be renamed and such and move staffs around but does that have to do withECHL and such as well renaming them and what not... Just because i want to bring in Quebec but that would give Atlantic 9 teams so i would have to move Detroit back to Central so i was thinking of putting Quebec in Central then once July Hits rename Detroit to Quebec and then Quebec to Detroit after the expansion draft etc... Just not sure if i had to rename the AHL and ECHL staff team name and moving staff and what not..
