FIFA 21 Career Realism Mod (Paulv2k4)

Let’s be honest, we’ve all started a career mode with our favourite teams from the top five leagues. It’s not difficult to sign all the world class players within 2 seasons with ease if you’ve played FIFA’s career mode series before. Not many improvements have been made regarding this aspect for years and FIFA 21 career realism mod (paulv2k4) tries to solve this problem by making the mode more realistic.

Note: This is an early alpha legacy mod version of the career realism mod. Many improvements are on their way.

Current Features

Match simulation, League table and Goal Scorers 

  • Top teams will win the league with realistic points & goals scored
  • Top scorers and assisters are more realistic


  • Transfer Budgets
    • Substantially lowered the amount of transfer budget smaller teams have to be far more realistic
      • This in turn, helps the AI Transfer Market become more realistic

Transfers (WIP)

  • Loans
    • Adjusted loans so there are no more unrealistic random loans
  • Nationalities
    • English players very rarely leave England
    • Player movement between countries is based upon real-world data of player nationalities in each league
  • Free Agents
    • Free Agents wont just play for any team, there will be no more picking up gems from the Free Agent market with a poor team
  • AI Transfers
    • The AI will actively replace all lost players
    • The AI will always want to improve their team
    • The AI is much less likely to stack in a position (WORK IN PROGRESS)

Player Search – GTN

  • Searching for players now reveals attributes much faster
  • GTN and Scouting find players much more suited to your team. No longer will a league 2 team find Sergio Aguero in their scout list!

Player Values (WIP)

  • Player Potential (young players who future stars are expensive)
  • Player Values have been adjusted to be more like

Player Growth (WIP)

  • Dynamic Potential is not used as much and not as high
  • Player attribute growth affects all attributes for all players

How do I find out if it’s working?

1) When you load the game, the “Press Start” screen has a new (placeholder) background.
