FIFA 18 Official Update - Mods Status

  POSTED February 20, 2018

EA released a new FIFA 18 update. With every FIFA 18 update, mods developed with Frosty Editor don´t work properly. This is related to legacy files ( database, teams crest, mini kits, etc )  So you will probably see the new kits but you will have new teams missing, career mode doesn´t have new tournaments, missing mini kits, etc. So, we suggest that if you would like to continue playing with mods not to update FIFA 18. Anyway, we know this is not the right way since you won´t be able to play online. 

Importing files back with Frosty Editor is quite a bit of work. It would probably take days or a week. We believe this is where CG File Explorer will come as a solution. That´s why we decided to create mods once this tool is ready, since CG File Explorer will allow to import mods created with any FIFA 18 update. 

We believe most modders will move to CG File Explorer. We can confirm that FIFA Argentina ( ) will create their next mod update with CG File Explorer. Meanwhile, as we said, you have the option to not update FIFA 18 until a new version of your favorite mod is released.

By the way, this is what EA included in the latest FIFA 18 Official Update :

  • The addition of an Accessibility Settings screen.
  • This is available in the Main Menu on the Customize tab by selecting the Settings tile.
  • This adds the following new settings:
    • The ability for players to remove the need to use the right stick within the game menus, allowing for navigation with the left stick only when using a controller.
    • The ability for players to remove the need to use the left and right trigger/left and right bumper buttons within the game menus, allowing for players to scroll up to the top of the menu and cycle through them with the left stick when using a controller.
      • This change will impact the Game Settings and Controller Settings screens only.
    • The ability to add an on-screen, and clickable, ESC button during gameplay to allow for opening the Pause Menu using the mouse only.
    • The ability to increase the size of the clickable buttons within the game menus when using a mouse.
  • Pressing the D-pad, when using a controller, would occasionally not register.
Made the following changes in FIFA Ultimate Team:
  • In FUT Champions Weekend League, on the Match Preview screen, you will no longer see the status of your opponent update between "Making Changes" and "Ready", it will always display as "Making Changes"
  • Selecting the difficulty of a match in FUT Squad Battles will no longer cause the player’s default match difficulty setting outside of FUT Squad Battles to be changed.
  • In the preview panel for a FUT Champions Channel replay, the match records displayed for the participating players will now reflect their record when that match took place instead of their current record.
  • German and Polish text overlapping the button icons on the controls panel in FUT Champions Channel.
  • Player Contracts and Manager Contracts were incorrectly capitalized in the search filter options of the FUT Transfer Market.
Audio / Visual / Presentation:
  • Updates to the 2D portraits for almost 1000 players.
  • Added 2d portraits for 342 players that previously had a silhouette.
  • Post goal commentary saying that a defender deflected the ball on goal, when it was actually the keeper that touched the ball before it went into the net, when using Arabic, German, Dutch, Spanish, French, Italian, Mexican Spanish, Polish, Russian or Japanese commentary.
