Hi folks!

i’m dropping by to present you my NEW, very own project, which is all about reviewing (& improving in a sense) the original SWOS db.

as u all may know the original db was full of imprecisions (wrong kits, nationalities, some outdated squads, etc.)

Now, in a strike of nostalgia, i intend to make our beloved game suitable to travel back in time, to 1996/97, in a fresh way.

The details:

INFO SOURCES:
- wikipedia (for kits, when needed)
- worldfootball.net (for historical squads)
- rsssf.com (for team naming & precise league composition)

WHAT WILL BE IN:
- fully curated DB, done by me, with attention to ALL teams
- a few “bonus” leagues/clubs for more depth & entertainment (e.g. China will replace Taiwan, the 3 african countries will no longer be, but instead a mix of best african clubs will use their spots, and so on…)
- precise composition of 96/97 competitions, worldwide
- No-League clubs will only have blank players (some competitive teams will also be, fully or partially blank, because of roster info that is unavailable on more obscure countries - and, for the sake of consistency, i only want to use a source of information on squads)
- a very improved & consolidated Db to play very nice, nostalgic careers
- LOADS OF LOVE FOR SWOS

WHAT WON’T BE MESSED WITH:
- league structure (the nr. of Premier, 1st div, etc. clubs will be kept the same as original game)
- appearances (i will, when a gross mistake is spotted or i know from memory or i am provided with a pic of a player in worldfootball website, make a few changes but, for the most part, will trust the original choice of the creators + my own instinct)
- player values (maybe, ONLY MAYBE, the values in National teams will be different, cause i inted to make exact copies of players that existe in a club to put them exactly the same on the given NT) 

Feel free to say your opinion about this project and be sure that when it is finished i’ll share with u all to play!

Attached are some pics to give u an idea of the things to expect!!!

Take care u all!!!
