Now Available: Fixing the Big Issue with Collars on PES Kits

Update: We've just unlocked the new "Improved UV mapping" feature for all members of PES Master Plus. It's taken us a bit longer than expected, mainly because we decided to implement specific mapping for the PES 2021 kit model in addition to the what we developed for the eFootball kit model initially. The feature is enabled by default for all Plus members.

How to use

Requirement: Plus membership
  • In order to use the feature, you have to select any of the supported templates (listed further down).
  • If you have Plus, it should be enabled by default, but you can double-check if it is active by going to the Settings panel looking for "Improved UV mapping"
  • Once enabled, all base designs, graphics and patterns will be mapped to the collar where applicable

Original article (May 30, 2022): Over the past few days we have teased an upcoming update to the Kit Creator that we're really excited about. It's probably the best addition to the Kit Creator since we switched to the new app last year.

As you might have noticed, there's a big limitation with the PES kit model compared to e.g. FIFA's - the collar is mapped to a different part of the texture, which means that kits where the designs / graphics continue onto the collar are very tedious to recreate - this is the case with a lot of templates from different brands such as the new Nike 22-23 styles, Adidas' Condivo 20 model or various recent Puma efforts.

From FM to FIFA to PES

Utilizing a system we first created for the FM Kit Creator and later adapted for the FIFA version's 'collar mapping' feature, we will soon release an update that almost entirely eliminates this issue.

With this new feature, currently named 'Improved UV mapping', we have created detailed configurations for the different templates that will map the shirt and / or sleeve designs onto the collar part, creating a pretty much seamless look. Check out the various comparison pictures in this post to see this in action.

The feature can be toggled on and off, as there is a performance hit when it is enabled (this of course only affects supported templates). In addition to that, there are three quality modes (low, medium, high), with the latter two utilizing a more complex computation to avoid edges showing up between the body and collar part of the kit.
