First I've got to say fantastic work to you both with these new stadiums - they add a lot to the game. I haven't looked into stadium conversion yet and will probably stick to improving the quality and number of custom faces for now but one useful thing I thought I could do was list down all the teams and their current stadiums to figure out where there are gaps etc.

See google sheets below which lists current teams against their home stadiums:

Appreciate creating a new stadium is a lot of work but I thought I would throw out a few suggestions/requests of some of the main remaining ones I think would be great to have:

Suggested stadiums for English Premiership (3):
  • Sandy Park (Exeter Chiefs) to replace Kingston Park (Newcastle current)
  • AJ Bell stadium (Sale Sharks) to replace Edgeley Park (Sale sharks until 2012)
  • StoneX/Allianz Stadium (Saracens) to replace Vicarage Road (Saracens until 2013)
Suggested stadiums for Top14 (3):
  • Paris La Défense Arena (Racing 92) replaces Parc de Paris
  • Stade Marcel-Deflandre (La Rochelle) replaces Nantes
  • Altrad stadium (Montpeiller) replaces Marseille
Suggested stadiums for URC (1)
  • Scotstoun Stadium (Glasgow) replaces Northern Park
Suggested changes to newly customised stadiums
  • Change Bristol’s Ashton gate to replace memorial ground
I’m going to see if I can work out name editing and reallocating stadiums using the .english and xml file (if I do that I suggest that AAMI replaces Sydney and we keep Perth)

I'm in the middle of doing AJ Bell Stadium (Sale) by hand, I really want to do Racing's arena but can't find any good photos/layouts of it.

The stands look great!- yeh Racing’s stadium is very unique with the large screen and being completely indoors

There are a number of photos on here and a fly through video at bottom here if that helps

There is one 3D model but it isn’t free and isn’t set up as rugby pitch so not sure it is helpful

I also found this workflow video of the stadium in something called Smode

I don’t know enough about it but they seem to have an arena model and a download for the smode project file - not sure if the stadium model could be exported from there to use in blender?

Need to get back to work but just had a quick look and there is a .fbx file in that project folder that I've opened up in blender

Edit: there is also a load of textures in PLDA_Design\PLDA_Design.project\Merge\PLDA jordi\PLDA jordi\PLDA_Design.project\Textures

Is that file from the Sketchfab site you linked? May be I'll have a look at it in the future after finishing the Sale stadium.

It looks to be a different model - the Sketchfab one doesn't look to have stands for example

Also I just download and converted a Estadio Jose Amalfitani file so it can be imported to blender (dae file) if that helps

https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/mo...0141/Estadio-Jose-Amalfitani?hl=en&login=true

This is what a premium (295 euros!) version of the model looks like - https://hum3d.com/3d-models/jose-amalfitani-stadium/. I think the sketch up version below at least has a lot of the same features.

And this the best model I can find for Saracens so far, I think the pitch and outside of stands textures are the main issue otherwise it looks likes Allianz/Stonex- https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/mo...afc68ebf/Allianz-Park-Barnet-Copthall-Stadium

I use ama1's patch myself, I haven't tested with yours yet. I've re-zipped it and uploaded it here, try using this version. Also try renaming the file to overwrite a different stadium and test if that works.

AJ Bell Stadium, current home of Sale Sharks, replaces Edgley Park in the game. I've changed the environments of the stadium, overcast replaces the night option, and night replaces snowy, I don't know how to change the game menus to reflect this. I've also made the smaller stands slightly bigger/taller to fill more background space but I can revert this if desired.

@Delta992 Is it possible to reupload your stadium files? I have most downloaded but not sure if I have the latest Aviva version and I don't have Aston gate downloaded. Also how would I reassign Bristol’s Ashton gate to replace memorial ground rather than Adam's Park (which is used for Wasps/Coventry stadium)? Thanks!

Crusaders' current home ground, Orangetheory Stadium/Rugby League Park/Addington Stadium in Christchurch. Includes day and night versions. I can't remember where I got the lights from, if I find them again I'll try to match up the night lighting for another version/release. Replaces the in-game Christchurch/Lancaster Park stadium.
