Transfers Expansion v2 for Dynasty mode by JDHalfrack
JDHalfrack has taken the previous transfers mod to overdrive. With some changes to the game code and some save template modding, we've now improved the game logic for who qualifies to be transferred increasing the pool by an order or two of magnitude (including reducing year count, regional restrictions, depth chart restrictions, etc.), removed transfer year eligibility restrictions, changed the transfer cap per team from 3 to 12, and increased the possible transfers database to 1524.
Gears & Accessories features by JD637, BaltimoreRavens and team
Recruits Database Gears and Accessories Realism Update by JD637
JD637 and BaltimoreRavens have been updating the gear and accessories graphics for a while now. Starting with V12, and with more improvements in V12.1, we've made it so the entire recruiting database can take advantage of some of the new graphic assets created for this mod, and to improve realism to match what players wear in real-life, and improved diversity/skin color.

Database improvements by Antdroid
There's been little tweaks and improvements to the game database to improve the league structure and stability and user interfaces.
Uniform Nameplate Fixes by Antdroid & JDHalfrack
Many teams that had missing names on the back of jerseys have had them made visible now with a special in-house tool created by JDHalfrack.
BCS Ranking Updates by JDHalfrack
This is a feature that mostly helps the future expansion, if we ever get there, but there is a slight tweak to the BCS calculation formula to take into account having 120 teams instead of the 119 default teams in this mod.
Team Logo Upgrades by Talon42
Team logos have had another pass through and updates where needed.
Helmet Updates by JD637
JD637 has updated the previous helmet appearances made by xflamesxofxhopex with some new helmet looks as well.
Menu, Dialog, and Disciplinary Caption Updates & Fixes by Antdroid
One of the cool features added in V12 was a fully-working and editable STRMDATA.DB file made possible by JDHalfrack. With that change, we are now able to update all in-game captions, headlines, dialogues, and other strings and features. This update improves upon the V12 changes and adds more dialog and captions variety to the game.
UI Updates and Fixes by Antdroid
There's a bunch of general UI changes to dynasty graphics and updates to sponsor logos and whatnot.
Updated Player Jersey number generation to be more realistic to 2020+ number rules by JDHalfrack
Player numbers now are generated to match new rules allowed by the NCAA, and now generated uniform numbers more closely align to realistic position/number combinations.
CPU Coach Career stat tracking by JDHalfrack & Antdroid
Previously, only User Coaches had stats tracked in a dynasty. With V12.1, we have enabled CPU coaches to have their records and stats tracked and easily viewed in Coach settings at any time.
Oregon "The Duck" Mascot addition by Antdroid and h4wduk3n
The Oregon Duck mascot is now an in-game playable mascot, and is also used for Oregon celebrations!
Hidden Conference Championship Bowl Games Mod by Antdroid & JDHalfrack
We have unlocked the ability to add more bowl games to the mod, however, this must be done by the user through DB Editor. With this, users can add two additional conference championship games or bowl games to the schedule. More info in the Wiki!

This changes from placement from the old 20 yard line to the 25 yard line, which was made a new rule in 2012 by the NCAA.
40 Second Playclock by JDHalfrack
