Thank you so much for St Petersburg!

It's awesome to see it, although with stadiums like this (as well as Allianz Arena and others) I can't help but feel puzzled as to how to properly arrange them in the context of multi-era patches like the famous Classic Patch.

For St. Petersburg it would be preferable if Zenit, Russia NT, WC 2018 and Euro 2020 could all be played there. But separate models mean there should be 2 cloned stadiums in the patch, which takes up another stadium ID and extends the stadium selection list.
For Allianz Arena I have so far arranged Bayern FC (with tournamentdressing corresponding to the UCL season) and WC 2006 within the same stadium ID (by assigning a new texture file as stadium_x_2006), but now the Euro 2020 version would require a separate ID although being close to identical in essence.

This is just my train of thought and not complaints, of course, just thinking of the optimal way to have multi-purpose stadiums.
Maybe you will one day do it, maybe I'll try, but the way I see it working the best is as follows:
1. an awesome stadium is created with full on custom dressing (let's say St Petersburg WC 2018)
2. tournament dressing feature is activated on top of such dressing (but in the case of WC 2018 a blank texture file is created as tournamentdressing_SPb_2018)
3. that custom tournament dressing can be changed to other versions (Euro 2020 or Zenit) by creating new stadium_SPb_2020 and stadium_SPb_Zenit files respectively
4. since tournamentdressing feature is activated and it overrides the custom dressing, when Zenit 2017-18 plays at the stadium the correct tournamentdressing_x_ucl1718 is loaded, and when Zenit 2020-21 plays at it the correct tournamentdressing_x_ucl2021 is shown
5. optionally, a generic version can be created for all kinds of friendlies and other tournaments (like Confed Cup 2017) where tournamentdressing would override the grey walls

With this system we can have one stadium with single stadiumid but at the same time a whole variety of dressing versions covering all kinds of possible scenarios either by custom stadium_x_texture + blank stadiumdressing file or by an actual stadiumdressing.

This would work perfectly for multi-use stadiums such as Wembley, Allianz Arena. St Petersburg etc

As I understand right you want to have one model for all the tournaments and with different tournament dressing textures in the tournament folder? I'm not sure what you mean by "creating new stadium". You want to use the specificstadium function?

Yes, single ID, single model, both specificstadium and tournamentdressing additional files.
As an example, St Petersburg stadium WC 2018 with custom WC 2018 dressing is specificstadium_xxx_2018_textures.rx3, switch the custom dressing to Euro 2020 graphics and now we have specificstadium_xxx_2020_textures.rx3, add a tournamentdressing file for Zenit and launch a Zenit game - now the tournamentdressing overrides everything and it's a Zenit version.
The base version (stadium_xxx_textures.rx3) is the WC 2018 version just with custom dresisng turned to grey walls and active tournamentdressing feature so that absolutely any game can be played there with new graphics.

Why not just use the specificstadium function with the stadium model as well, not only the stadium_textures files? I think it's working. Like "specificstadium_stadiumID_0_teamID_tournamentID" for the model and "specificstadium_stadiumID_0_teamID_tournamentID_textures" for the stadium textures files.
I remember I did this experiment with the French Euro 16 stadiums and it worked.

For some reason I've always believed this wouldn't work, because on paper this sounds like infinite stadiums hack (you can assign 20 stadiums to 1 ID and just go team by team with "specificstadium" assignment if this works like that).
Maybe it's the glares that don't have the "specificfx" feature if I remember correctly.
Anyway, I'll test and come back with results!

The crowd and glares don't support this function. So you won't have 50/50 crowd placement when you play World cup or Euro matches.

Mate, It's awesome your contribution. But I think you need to create your own Thread. In that way, there could be order cause' this is Gonzaga's thread with content of him. If you still putting your content here, it's going to be hard to find your posts for future viewers. There's not an index, order your content in your own thread and keep doing this amazing conversions ;D

Blender v2.71 with IE script v0.63 for fifa 14 crowd. Blender v2.72 with IE script v0.66 for fifa 16 crowd.
I also had such software. I have installed Blender v2.71, IE Script v0.63 and but I wasn't able to import ANY crowds. I was able w/ v2.72, but I wasn't able to export it.
I'll just ask, can you send me these tools with your settings?
I'm trying to convert Maine Road.

So, you have never exported crowd before? I mean - not successfully?

Hm, did you named the crowd correctly before exporting? It must be "crowd" only. No numbers, letters, dashes etc.
