Weekly News #35

It's been a pretty silent week, We still have a few "news" to bring to you, though :)

More new backgrounds
Want to give your PCM-game a more TdF-winner-like feel? Well, what about our new background with pictures from Tour de France of Alberto Contador? Oh, so you wanted Alejandro Valverde to win? Well, that's not a problem either. And if you don't like any of those two superstars, what about the young starlet, Linus Gerdemann, and a bunch of pictures from his TdF-victory?

Still not interested? Have a look in our Backgrounds section - you might find your favourite rider there ;)

PCM Spain's DB getting closer to deadline
As Dankan says in his blog here at PCM.daily today, the PCM Spain 2007 DB is getting closer to the release. Dankan will go on holiday in about two weeks time, meaning that he has to work a lot now on finishing the 2nd and probably last beta version of the DB. While he's gone, the beta testers will test the pack before it's released to the public.

Also, if you want to see anything from the DB, you can request it in the comments section of his blog today. You can also see the requested screenshots in the Screenshots section.

Ruben goes PCM07
Known for his RNDB 2000 for PCM06, Ruben is now working on a project for PCM07 - the RDB 2002. The first version will include the best 60 teams of 2002 with realistic team goals, budgets, rider stats, national champions, world champions, etc.. You will also find some of the young, upcoming stars (who will be free agents) and profiles for some races.

In the V2-version, Ruben hopes to have versions of the 2002 editions of the 3 grand tours along with a new ranking system and iinvitation system, similar to the ones from 2002.

New Graphics Tutorials
We have made a new article category which will contains different kind of graphics tutorials. Why didn't we just put them in the PCM07 category you might ask? Well, making jerseys for PCM06 and PCM07 is the completely same process, therefore there's no reason to only place the tutorials in one of the two PCM-categories. Instead, we made a new one and placed two tutorials there, both written by SportingNonsence.

PPDB makes a 1980 DB for PCM06
After having finished the PPDB V3 2007 PPDB has for once not had much work to do. They have decided NOT to make databases for PCM07, and instead they will be using their time on making a PPDB 1980 Giant for PCM06. The first teams have already been made, but there's a lot of work to be done. A completely new calendar, completely new teams, riders, shirts, races, etc. will need to be done, so don't expect it to be released any time soon.

And don't worry, PPDB will also make a 2008 DB for PCM06.

Continental Game still searching for managers
Going into the 2nd season, our Management Game has been very succesful. As mentioned in the news by SportingNonsence yesterday, the game has been extended with Continental Teams, and currently there's only two available teams left: Team Discovery Marco Polo, and the Japanese team, Nippo. So if you want to participate, don't hesitate with signing up. You can read much more about the game here.

In last week, I said that Aab-ern has been hired for the site crew. However, it seems like I have expressed myself in a sense which makes some people believe that he'll be a new "me", the new main adminstrator of the site. That's not the case. Aab-ern will support me in the tasks I have which is updating the download section and posting the Weekly News. I'll still be doing both things, but Aab-ern will assist me in that.
So, to make one thing clear: I'll still be on the site - now and also after I start at the university on Wednesday. It won't change much, except that I will probably use less time here compared to now.

Article Writers - apply now!
Currently, we feel that our crew is large enough compared to the amount of members we have. We do miss one kind of crew members, though: article writers. In the upcoming time we will put more focus on article writing, but it won't be succesful unless we get some article writers. So, if you're interested in writing guides for PCM, articles about PCM, articles about cycling or, well, in general writing, send me a PM, explaining what you're good at and why we should choose you.

Apply - now! ;)
