    Default TDU Central Magazine

    TheScottishSpotter has had the idea to create a TDU Central magazine and has asked me to post about it. It will feature reviews, comparisons and just general info about the cars available in TDU.

    This will be across all platforms. If you play PC, PS2 or 360, you are all welcome to write any type of page for the magazine, there will be sections for each console.

    Now obviously it is not possible to do it all by ourselves, so we are looking for anyone who is willing to take part, and would like to write a review to go in the magazine.

    We are looking to release the magazine monthly on the forums, so the first issue will hopefully be released on 1st September.

    The size for each page needs to be approximately 1427X2149 pixels. Do not worry if you cannot make a page this large as we can edit pages together and or enlarge pages before we put them in the magazine. Feel free to do your page in Microsoft Word or a similar program. Myself and TheScottishSpotter may copy your text and images into photoshop, to make the page up to size, but we will not change any of your formatting without your permission.

    The pages will need to me emailed to either myself or TheScottishSpotter, and you can find both are email addresses in our forum profiles.

    No, you will not be getting paid, this is just a bit of fun, the magazine will be for everyone to read, no money exchange between anyone will take place.

    So if anyone is interested, let us know. You can review any car you wish, however please check the post below to make sure it has not already been done, we don't want 15 different Enzo reviews

    This post will be updated as need be and I'm sure TheScottishSpotter will have some things to say below also, and or course add all the things I have forgotten.

    Thanks for reading,

    Speed.

    Thanks for posting this speed, i didn't know what to say so i'm glad you did. Should be good . Basically i was just cruising around and thought up the idea. Have to go back to school but i will be back about 4pm . Alex that sounds good. We still need to find a way of actually showing the magazine. I was thinking about adobe reader but no one knows how to do it . Any help would be much appreciated

    This is a very good idea look forward to seeing the first magazine.

    Heres a few ideas that I thought might be good:

    A long term test where you right about the ups and downs of the car over several issues.

    Upgrades and what the difference in speed and handling are.

    Previews of what could be coming out as DLC soon

    Letters or responses section so people can express there views on your articles

    A multi car test, say 3 cars from the same class, weigh up the pro's and cons of them and give them a rating out of 5 for speed handling etc and an overall.

    And in game screens of the vehicle tested.

    just a few ideas for you, look forward to the 1st issue.

    Just a quick question, is this going to be specifically for the PC version of the game or will it have a multi platform approach??

    Not quite sure yet stinger. We will have to decide soon though. If it was multi platform 360 players could do reviews on the DLC and cars not in the PC version so that might be an idea . So yes, can you move it to general? Thanks in advance!

    My review looks quite nice i think, but you have to wait!

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Lol, how could I forget, I was in the A6 for your pics, It's now been added to the second post

    As the thread has now been moved to general, I guess we will be looking at a multi-platform approach, therefore any 360/ PS2 players that do wish to write reviews are 100&#37; appreciated.

    It can be in Microsoft Word, and if you provide us with images and say where you want them inserted, Myself or TheScottishSpot will most likely copy them into Photoshop, to make the page the correct size, we will not change your formatting on anything (unless of course you want us to) so there is no need to worry, it will simply be to enlarge the size.

    If you need some help I have way to much time on my hands at the moment.

    If you need to save it as a .pdf file you can use the new office 07 to do that, no idea how good it would turn out. You can also buy the acrobat program to write ebooks aswell I think.

    Oh what about articles on cruises and upcoming events and stuff like that?

    Another insightful post by Baldy!!
