Update: Download the Public Beta here.
While you've been enjoying the 2013 DB Preview Edition that we released in January, we've been working hard on improving and adding more stuff to this year's PCM.daily Database.
Now we've reached a point where it's about time to show you the result. Later today, we will be releasing the Public Beta of the 2013 DB - and next weekend, it's time for the final version.
In the Public Beta you will find 91 teams with updated rosters - 44 of these have 2013 graphics. We've been adding lots of new equipment, new race routes for nine more races (bringing the total to 19) - and there's also nine more races to fool around in.
Some of you will be surprised to see that we've finally decided to abandon the old flags that's been a part of the PCM.daily DB for a lifetime and instead went with Zecha's flags. And speaking of graphics, you will also find 1.000 new rider pictures, most of which are from 2013.
Lastly, we have also done some minor, yet important DB-work. Some AI race programs have been rewritten to make AI teams smarter when choosing their preparation races. This is especially relevant for the Vuelta which many members have dubbed 'the easiest GT to win'. It may still be, but not to the same extent as before this release.
We have more up in the sleeve for the final V1 which, as said, will be released in about a week from now. However, we'd appreciate if you gave this Public Beta a try, so we can get rid of any bugs that may have found its way to the DB.
The Public Beta is being packed now and will then be uploaded to several mirrors. We expect to release the links tonight.
