2 All-star games possible?

I was looking to have 2 all-star games in a league or if possible a 3 game all-star series. I want to have 2 games for seasons that played 2 games and for a league that I have that has 60 teams. For the 60 team league none of the players selected will play both games. I want a team A allstars with the leagues greatest players and then a second a weekend game with the other players selected. I need this because with 30 teams in each league I am not really getting representation from each team.

I know I can create 4 extra teams at league creation time and only schedule 1 game or a series in the schedule and at game time edit the players to be on the team and then move them back after the game but this would not save the game as an all-star game in the official records. It would though show up in the player records as an entry depicting it was an all star game because of the team name, but the stats would show up in the career records as well as the season records.

Is this possible to have multiple All-Star games?

A schedule shortcoming that should be addressed at some point, IMO. (Along with allowing other All-Star Game formats, e.g. one club facing an All-Star squad made up of players from the remaining clubs.)

It's possible and no need to add any extra teams.
Been a few years since I've done it, but I don't think anything has changed.
During pre-season, export the schedule. Open it in notepad or a spreadsheet and add the extra allstar game. The row in the schedule ending with type="4" is the allstar game. Copy that row and add it in where you want. Don't forget to edit the day= if you want it on a different day. Reimport the schedule and check it to make sure your extra allstar game shows up.
Adjust the rosters for your newly added allstar game when the time comes. All should work fine.
