    Hi there.
    I´ve found a way to add new stadiums and they work 100% without any hack to lua files.

    I´ve decoded the rendering database. This database includes data related with all stadiums in game. Since new stadiums we add were not in this database they were not rendering properly ( missing sky, wrong time of day, etc )

    Well the fact is that we have the chance to add this lines in a file named rendering_patch.cdb

    DOWNLOAD IT
    https://www.mediafire.com/?d5c8mfqv6ocv6fu

    Open it with hexadecimal editor and it´s easy to understand.

    From offset 0A to 151 you have the data for stadium 269 day version. See that it says stadiumdb/stad_269_1

    From offset 152 to 2BC you have the data for stadium 269 night version.
    See that it says stadiumdb/stad_269_3

    [​IMG]


    To add more stadiums you just copy the same block and paste after that one ( I´ve already added some more WC stadiums in that file ) You paste the block and simply change numbers of the stadium and ready!

    This file goes in Game/data/ folder and you have to regenerate or remove reference from data_0.big file

    Finally solved the mistery where the game stores this data :D

    Regards!

    Thank you Moddingway for decoding the rendering database !
    I opened it with WordPad and I am going to give it a try...

    most of the lighting and rendering is done in that file and the shader files.

    I´m not changing or replacing rendering.cdb file that includes all rendering data. I´m just adding more data to an alternative file that it´s empty and it´s named rendering_patch.cdb. That file has no content and probably EA thought to use it for patches. The good thing is that we can use it to make stadiums work without any hack to lua files and with real skies and times of day.

    A suggestion that I have:

    Do you suggest a backup before doing anything, or this mod doesn t "touch" our db in any way?

    No, in your db you don´t have to make any change just to add the stadiums you want. The file changed is originally empty.

    Nice. Yes the idea will be to add blocks for all stadiums. I´m not sure about a limit but it´s a nice option to try :)

    Thanks! Works well with the most added stadiums but with Arena Amazonia (267) doesn't, it's only me or what?
    I mean Lights works well with all stadiums but not banners, banners problem with Arena Amazonia.

    100% verified: adding too many stadiums in this file, makes FIFA crash even before Messi's splash picture... :/

    That's a shame if true, hopefully Ariel may be able to figure out a workaround.
