What can you do with the FM21 Editor?

The free FM21 Editor lets you do pretty much anything to the database. You can give your non-League team £1 billion or create yourself in the game with 20 on every attribute.

EDIT ME: Fulfil your wildest football dreams in the FM21 Editor

The Editor will load up the current database, and from there you can go to work.

Once you're done make sure you save your work as a separate database. You can then start a new FM21 save with that edited database, where Lionel Messi an Real Madrid player or Jose Mourinho is back at Stamford Bridge.

What about the In-Game Editor?

The FM21 Editor can only be used out of game and can only impact a new save. If you want to do some editing with-in your save you'll need the In-Game Editor.

It really does make you the most powerful manager in the footballing world!
