PCM.daily's database reviews
NewsHi,

In our on-going poll 14 of you have voted that you would like more new initiatives and more focus on the articles section. Well, we have both for you! For a few weeks, we have worked in our private room for something unseen on the PCM-community site-scene .. well, until now, that is: Database Reviews.

In our reviews we pay a lot of attention to the overall editing of the database. That could for example be having changed the "CyaTour" to "Pro Tour", the addition of new stages / new calendar, etc.. That part counts for 60 %.
Since the stats of the riders are very subjective we don't count that for just as much. Therefore, it's only 20 % of the overall grade.
The same goes for our graphic grade. After all, it is a "database", not a "pack of graphics".

To start off with we have three reviews: the Schütz DB 1.0, RSM News DB 1.3 and PCM Spain 2.2. All of them are 2007 databases which is (of course) not a coincidence. In the beginning, we will focus on 2007 databases, mainly because that's what people are most interested in at the moment. Later on, we will also rate historical database projects and some 2006 databases.

Read the reviews by clicking "Database Reviews" in the left menu. Also, if you have any suggestions, please express them in our forum :)
Weekly News #18
News

An amazing Paris - Roubaix has just ended, and in the aftermath of that race we present this week's news for you :)


Surprising Roubaix result proves our users wrong
Today, our Paris-Roubaix ended. Not very surprisingly, Fabian Cancellara was awarded the title as "top favorite" for the race with 36 % of the votes. On 2nd place came Tom Boonen with 28 %. But with the surprising result in real life I can only say one thing: 91 % of you were wrong. Only 9 % of you said it would be another than one of the ones listed, and with the victory of Stuart O'Grady that was the right answer ;)

Our new poll is a site poll. Since the website opened we haven't really focused much on what the users had to say. In the new poll you can give your opinion on what we, the crew, should invest more time in.

Crommy joins the crew
To help us with the above, we have managed to get Crommy into our crew. Crommy is 16 years old and from England - and for us, it's of course always great to have a native English speaker.
Crommy will help us with new initiatives and article writing which will focus on introducing the basics of cycling and PCM. We will for sure see some interesting things from him in near future.

World Championship finally to get started
This week, the groups for the World Championships were drawed. Each group has 10 players - 5 of them will proceed to the next round. The games are to be played next weekend.

France is the best represented nation with 11 players followed by Poland with 7 players (it's worth mentioning that the organizer is from Poland which explains the high number of participants from that country) and Italy with 5 participants. No players from Great Britain is represented at the official World Championship.

If you've registered the championship, remember to keep yourself updated with the Cyanide topic: http://www.cyanide-studio.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=51232

Futuristic database released
The 2nd futuristic database has been release The first one was the 2012 DB which we commented in the 14th edition of our Weekly News. The new one is the 2nd version of the 2009 Database and includes a new set of teams. Some of the old teams stll exist, but most teams have been replaced by new ones. For example does CSC still exist and has been reinforced with the signing of Thor Hushovd. The calendar is still pretty much the same as the original one, but you will find new races, for example the Tour of Scotland.

You can find the DB in our Historical DB-zone.

Final version of Rasmu89?
After a few more patches, Rasmu89 seems to have finally released the FINAL version of his database. The pack has ended up at an amazing 288 MB size which should include everything you will need, including photos of all riders, an amazing (and I mean amazing) amount of graphical addons.

We do not currently host the pack, but we will very soon. I promise.


That's all I have for now. I know it's not much, but you just have to live with it ;) Next week, the Weekly News will be presented by another crew member for the first time since I'm in Berlin from the 19th to the 23rd.. Take care.

Weekly News #17
News

Even though I have been a little ill last week we still have the weekly news to do ;)


Story round up
Last week was a little sad for our newly started story section. The most viewed story, the T-Mobile Story by Alex134, was stopped because of a PCM-reinstall. We also had to say goodbye to the Red Bull Cycling Team-story by SportingNonsence, because it was too time-consuming.

On a more positive note, Crommy has now started his 2nd story. The new one is about Credit Agricolé and is more visually based than any other story so far. Check it out here.

Want to start a story yourself? Go to our story-forum.

New, interesting 2007 DB
Another 2007 database has been released. I haven't heard other people mention it, but it does actually seem quite good and substantial. "Stanosbase07" is made by a Dutch forum member called Stanos Libre, and it contains - apart from the traditionals, of course - lots of graphical extras, the new World Championship-route, new sponsors, manager photos, 2007 calendar, etc.. The only con seems to be that the race names are in Dutch.

The DB is currently not available from PCM.daily, but it has its own website where you can find a lot more information and the download link. The website is in Dutch, but it should be partly understandable. Visit it here: http://www.stanoslibre.com/

05 Titan DB to be released soon
A pretty ambitious historical database project is close to be released. The Titan05 Database will be a database based on the year of 2005 and will contain around 140 teams, 2500 riders, new equipment, more secondary sponsors, criteriums and much more.

The beta has just been released to the beta testers. It's expected to be released around the end of May.

Another ambitious 2007 project
As announced on our forum, the German CyM Team has decided to make a 2007 database. With the database, they will open up a new website which - apart from hosting their database - will contain articles about how to make jerseys, databases, and more.

The database will contain a huge rider pictures pack, real faces of a lot of the riders in-game, 2007 race calendar, 2007 profiles / editions of a lot of races, and a lot more.

You can read more on our forum or by clicking here.

Rasmu89 finishes his DB
Yep, it actually happened. Rasmu89 has announced that the v5 patch for his 2007 DB is the last one, and he considers his database completed .... but (yes, you guessed it) - a bug has just been found with the salaries, and that requires a new patch to be released.

Whenever he's done we will host his complete project here. But as long as the DB has a new patch out every day we will just wait until it calms down ;)

--

Thanks a lot for reading. And since you have used time on reading the above I have a little gift for you ;) During this week, we - the crew - hope to announce a new initiative which we have been working on for a few weeks. Look forward to it - it's innovative :)

RSM News DB 2007 1.4 Released!
DownloadsA new version of the database voted the most popular in our last poll has been released.

RSM News DB 2007 1.4 includes even more updated transfers and includes the new 2007 UCI race calendar. The update also comes with updated versions of Paris Nice, Tirreno Adriatico, Tour de Suisse and many more.

It has been uploaded to our database and can be downloaded from the following link: http://www.pcmdaily.com/downloads.php?cat_id=13&download_id=120
Two new articles
News

Our two crew members, Alex153 and SportingNonsence, have worked on two new articles for you. SportingNonsence has given his look upon the upcoming Tour de France. He look at the different PT-teams and their chances of having success. In addition to that, he also guess at who will be given the different wildcards and a top-10 overall prediction.

Give it a read by clicking here.

Alex153's article will be a monthly tradition. Each month, Alex will write about the upcoming Pro Tour-races and give us an idea of what to expect. This month is quite long since we have seven PT-races.

Check it out here.

(Both articles can be found in "Off Topic-articles")
