Data Pack 3.00 Preparation

Hi guys, it has been a while since I posted anything sorry, Work has kept me very busy, so PES has been neglected a bit, so much so that I still haven't finished editing my own game. There is a new data pack this week which is released on Thursday and I hoping that a few days after that I will finally finish and be able to start playing BAL.

I'm sure you have all seen the announcements about the data pack but for anyone that hasn't it will include the winter transfers, Euro 2016 mode as well as the usual new boots and player faces. It is also rumoured that NT squads will be updated, I have sent a tweet to @officialpes for confirmation, but haven't got a reply as yet.

Yesterday I spent the day preparing for the data pack, so I thought I would share this with you all so you can carry it out as well.

Base Copy Players
I have base copied players that will be removed by the data pack because they have been transferred/loaned to teams not in the game that either have a Preset face or I need for a team I have created. You can find a full list of players with a Preset face who will be removed by Megatrom on pesgaming here

Check for players created over fake NT players
There are some new licensed NT's in the data pack, these include a few teams that previously had fake player names. The teams are Albania, Croatia, Czech Republic, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine and Wales. I base copied any players I had created over the fake duplicates as they will disappear after the data pack.

New/Old NT duplicates
I have base copied any players that will no longer be duplicates over their fake version and defaulted the names of any players that will now be a duplicate. There is a great spreadsheet by Duck No.99 that shows the changes between the data packs here

If it is true NT squads will be updated then there may be other players removed from the game that may need base copying before the update. I'm trying to get confirmation of who these players might be and will update this post if I get any information.

Normally the data pack comes out just as I'm getting home from work so I tweet anything I notice or answer any questions on Twitter while I'm editing, but I will be travelling on Thursday evening so I won't get to look until 11pm/midnight, but will be happy to answer anything then.

I hope everyone is well,
