DF11 Facepacks is founded in 2010 by the idea to create large-sized portrait faces for Football Manager.
A portrait styled face looks classy and uniform in Football Manager and why have small faces if you can have large ones?
Everyone knows the Panini football stickers wich many of you did or do collect.
The idea for DF11 faces was based on the Panini's but without all the extra fuss
(such as names, stats, and flags) which are already displayed by default in Football Manager.
Thanks to the help of some amazing guys (view 'heroes' list on bottom) the concept and
facepack grew in 3 years from zero to hero in the FM community worldwide.
Now 10 years after the start of this face pack project we are still active thanks to the support of our loyal DF11 users
and the hard work of everyone involved in the development of DF11 faces.
The original DF11 face is sized 260x310 which is
much larger than the in-game default faces (180x180).
Why are DF11 faces larger than the standard size?
It seems simple in the first place. I just wanted to see larger
and more football related images in Football Manager.
There is another reason in second place when looking further
to the game.
Football Manager evolves from year to year. New features
come and go. By creating larger faces the quality of the DF11
image will always remain the same. Whether Football Manager
will display the face by standard size or in DF11's large size.
"Who didn't collect these?"
Once we found our way in the FM
community the amount of downloads
The DF11 Megapack is downloaded 2.2 million times worldwide over the last 3 years.
To avoid misunderstandings we decided to contact the development department of Sports Interactive in 2014.
We simply wanted to know if the number of graphics (gigabytes) will affect the game speed of Football Manager.........
Their answer was very clear.
The number of graphics (faces, logos, kits, etc) doesn't affect
the game speed.
Graphics do only affect the start-up time. The game will run just normal when loaded.
Producing over 125.000 faces isn't something
you achieve without the help of others.
I was lucky to meet nice people who believed in this project and offered amazing help.
