Hi guys, as some of you will have seen there has been a bit more info released on editing options for PES 2014. I was told quite a bit of this previously but could release the info as it was still under embargo, but now I will fill you in.
As was previously announced there are now more options for editing kits, instead of just adding a PNG for the front of the shirt, it is now possible to add one for the front of the shorts, front of the socks and one for each of the sleeves. Also shirts can now have 5 layers, shorts 4 and socks 3 so kits should look even better.
It will be possible to add 3rd and 4th kits for unlicensed teams, but there is still only one GK kit. Some licensed teams will have the option of a 3rd kit through DLC, you may have seen one of the pre-order bonuses containing 3rd kits for Man Utd & Milan (plus a few others). I think I read that these would be released as part of data packs at a later date as well although I could be wrong.
Stats have changed slightly, some have been removed, some renamed and there are a few new ones. This means I will need to create stats for all the created teams again which I have already started doing.
First the bad news, it is not possible to use face scans in PES 2014 and because of the new engine a lot of players who previously had preset faces no longer do. On the plus side though Konami have announced they will be adding more presets through DLC throughout the year, they are even taking suggestions here http://winningelevenblog.com/blog/what-faces-would-you-like-added-to-pes2014-after-release/ . Also the face build option has had a revamp and it is no possible to get even better results, so face scans might not be so much of a loss after all.
As I said a few weeks ago there are now three editable 1st divisions (containing 20 teams) and 1 2nd division (18 teams). I was right and each of the 1st divisions is locked to a region, so one for Europe, one for South America and one for Asia. Each of these three leagues can be adjusted to contain 14, 16, 18 or 20 teams. If you reduce a league to 18 teams I don't know what happens to the other 2 teams as yet, but I would guess they become other teams for that region (lets see if I'm right this time).
Team Emblems (Edit)
Can't believe I posted without including this, one of the best bits of news is that there will be no limit on the number of team emblems. This means no more Championship logo for all the Championship teams, every team will have their correct emblem.
That's about it for the moment, let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Tomorrow I will post a basic plan for my 2014 OF containing a schedule and what I plan to include.
Thanks for reading, Paul
