df_Trek stages

After some mediocre works that I would like to avoid you Pfft (also because are mainly fantasy races between the roads that I'm used to ride during training), now that I think at least I got a medium level of quality, I want to share with PCM.daily community some of my projects

This project is born when I signed a contract with a young swedish rider, so I decided to create the National Championships, that are missing in game, and considering that I would have added it to my career by an editor, I decided make a World Championship to share it in larger scale to the community. btw I'll upload the NC too.

Looks like a very cool race, great work for a first published stage! One question though: have you unticked Merge Finishline in Borders Parameters? I couldn't make that up from the one start/finish screen, but the roundabout did seem a bit weird to me.

Thanks very much! I appreciate your congratulations after all hard work I did! Grin

actuallt I didn't! I hid all the stuff in the middle of the roads manually, but after that, when I export the stage appears a mobile structure in the last corner that was very annoying...thanks for the solution that I'llnever reach by myself, now I fixed the problem, I'll upload the correct ones later this night Wink

The race looks awesome! And it's nice to know it's on your own roads, kinda makes it special.
Btw do I see some inspiration from Bergen in the houses? Wink

These are not really from my roads, I'm not from Sweden Pfft..the ones on my roads are my first stages I created, but are low in quality of details and so on...
and yes, I took inspiration from scandinavian houses in general, because I think that the luxembourg kit is the closest to the coloured wooden houses from there Wink

zcts file is not included because is the same used in the WC

The swedish national championship is not playable in the pcm.daily EP, but if you have a bit familiarity with editors it needs just 5 minutes to be added Wink

main city of my next project is almost done, just some details are missing...but it needs long way to the finish (everything else) Pfft

I'm revolutioning a Classic that I found very weird in every PCM version I played Cool
I hope the outcome will be good enough to be better than original stage, but first trials look encouraging...
I'm not far to the definitive version. I will post soon more screenshots

here they are!
try to guess which race is (not so hard to understand Wink )

When I saw this written Strade Bianche was the first one that popped to mind Smile
It looks great, it is indeed a big challenge though, there has never been (I think) a variant that represents the climbs really as steep as they are so I believe you encountered the same issue, but graphics wise you have NAILED IT with the final Km Pfft

yes the problem I found was actually this classic isn't selective as in realty, and I tried to improve this aspect, and there will be a big surprise too

Strade Bianche - 2018


...and main surprise is...


Spoiler

Yes! A "cobbled" version!

after various trials I got interesting follow ups, so I decided to publish in this version, this is a questionable choice, but I found it better than orignial for sure.

Why is good:
-AI behaviour/strategy: teams recognize gravel sector (like cobbled ones) and this bring them to try to get them on top of the peloton, and make race hard sooner than usual last few kms, moreover leaders are inclined to attack sooner and trying long range breaks
-Gravel sectors are all 1 star difficulty of cobbles, and this don't smash riders even if are taken very fast and they are not northern specialists, but drain slowly riders along the full race
-The race is a lot more selective, and delays at finish line are very similar to realty, uphill sprint between 40+ riders are avoided
-In 3d game is a lot more funny Pfft and this is not a secondary aspect

Questionable points:
-Teams will line up a more northern classic squad then hilly/climbing one
-Many riders like Bardet/Brambilla or other pure climbers will not like it in career mode
-Riders with low cobble stat are more disadvantaged than realty

btw I found positive aspects a lot more important than negatives, and if we look at the scoreboard since the first edition we can see how on podiums there are more than 90% of riders northern classic addicted

If you will try it please let me know if this is a successful experiment or not, your impressions, and what you think can be improved Wink



 
Yellow Jersey
I will try it soon, and yeah it is indeed a great idea! 1 star will still make it possible for +/- 70COB riders to have their chance of winning.. but solely the fact of making it more selective is a major up as it's a massive issue with the actual game race.

And well if you look at Benoot, van Aert, GVA, Sagan, Cancellara, Stybar who had perfect skillset for this, they all have one thing in common Wink

I have played the stage, and well, it clearly skewed towards cobblers now, even with just 1 star rating in the cobbles. I won it with Sagan, ahead of 3 breakaway riders (Uran, Edmondson, Delage) and half a minute behind a 10-rider group led by Trentin, with most of the bigger cobbler you would expect there (GvA, Terpstra, Naesen, Gilbert), but also a guy like Valverde or Kwiatkowski in the first group. I would say that less than 70 cob it's impossible to do well in this stage. Bardet, Froome and Alaphilippe were all around places 20-25, 3 minutes behind and more.

Punchy cobblers are the way to win this race i would say, so the purpouse of the stage is fullfilled :lol:

Man that really is perfect I'd say. Alap is too light and I really don't see him performing in a race like this that, and Froome obviously don't see him in the top spots aswell.. The first group you portrayed seems pretty good and realistic, powerhouse riders mainly with Valverde (who we know can do the cobbles too so it fits very well)
