Maillot Request
Hi everyone, I saw a tweet by Team Dimension Data this week about the Arbos Vampire Team with a picture of their maillot, I think is very cool and I wish it could be added to the game on the WorldDB or the PCM ones. I´ll leave the tweet here in case anyone has the time and skill to take this request.

My personal opinion would be to do a modern remake keeping the same design but adding some modern sponsors as if it was a normal UCI team. (Please notice the hand on the right side of the chest).

Arbos font is pretty close to:
Would need to trim the "A" a bit.
Vampire font appears to be:
free version with just letters:

With these, the design is trivial.

Interestingly the color selection is really close to a design I just did, where colors were inspired in part by the 1969 Ford GT, although clearly this jersey predates even that:


I'm not sure about the text placement on the shorts, which are clearly much longer in the PCM template, but since I can't preview this it might not look right.

Stitching is wrong, and for the shorts I relied on a low-res photo of Primo Volpi, but let me know what you think. (I fixed the s versus a previous posting of this). I'm not sure about the Arbos text on the shorts: the placement may need to be tuned so the front and back seamlessly match, and the size may not be right, but I can't preview it on my computer.

Edit: I tried to fix text alignment on shorts, increased the text size (because in photo it looks large), and increased character spacing to better match photo.

Edit: I changed the shorts font to something blockier.

I wish I knew how to make the shorts shorter. Does PCM recognize transparency?

Also: it would be cool to draw the tubular wrapped around the shoulder. Sigh.

Since I put in a decent amount of work on this,as a Mac user I'm curious how it looks. If anyone loads it into the game, please post a screen image! Thanks....
