TheSpungo's Total Mod Thread

676 posts in this topic

Contained within the friendly confines of this thread will be everything that I have created with my own two hands. There is no longer a need for a new thread to be created each time I release a mod, therefore I'd like to ask that you please keep all inquiries about my uniform accessories in this one thread.

This first page will be updated with every new creation I churn out the minute it's done, and the following pages will be for our comments and witty banter.

Uniforms:

---------------

You and your hair brain schemes...

This one might actually pay off, though. Yankee4life actually stickied this thread already! Now I guess I gotta start putting some stuff in here so it's sticky worthy...

Spungo, question(s):

Your fielding glove mod 5.0 comes with files and .bmps. Are we supposed to be able to take those .bmps and make diff. gloves if we wanted different ones? I've seen cooler gloves in other previews like the Pujols glove and then I installed the mod like you said to and I was less impressed. I guess I thought that I'd have a pop up window come up telling me to choose wich one I wanted, like, the bat mod.

Along with that, I want to know if you or someone reading this can tell me how to put dirt on your gloves. Like, your red one. I sort of can see why someone called it cartoonish. Sort of. I still like it but want to add something to it. You know how Trues added dirt to his baseball and something else the other day that has escaped my mind. I want to do that.

Lastly, I really enjoyed looking through your generic uniform accessories. My favorite thing was the shoes. That and the catcher's gear were quite amazing. Thanks for the upload.

I guess I thought that I'd have a pop up window come up telling me to choose wich one I wanted, like, the bat mod.

The installer I included only installs the basic gloves that overwrite each default color glove (my super powers only permit me to make simple batch files, nothing compared to most 'installers' found on this site). But if you want a little more pizazz, you totally can using NFSHtool. Download NFSHtool, check out the readme, and then you should be set to roll. With NFSHtool, you only need to swap out .bmp files that you want included in the .fsh file, which is then installed in the game. If you download the program and still can't figure it out, I guess I can write a brief little tutorial so people won't need to ask me how to do this anymore.

Along with that, I want to know if you or someone reading this can tell me how to put dirt on your gloves. Like, your red one. I sort of can see why someone called it cartoonish. Sort of. I still like it but want to add something to it. You know how Trues added dirt to his baseball and something else the other day that has escaped my mind. I want to do that.

I'm still not sure which glove everyone thinks is cartoonish. I thought the original Easton glove I use to include was the most cartoony, but I've since replaced that with a red Nike in my installer that I think looks pretty sharp.

But regardless, you can totally put dirt on them if you'd like. As for directions on that, I have none. Looking briefly at Photoshop I don't really see a specific pattern that would provide a dirt effect, so I'm not sure how those other dirty modders were able to add it.

Lastly, I really enjoyed looking through your generic uniform accessories. My favorite thing was the shoes. That and the catcher's gear were quite amazing. Thanks for the upload.

Anything to please my favorite online uncle! I'm glad to see that people are downloading and checking it out...

I never thought I would like any shoe better than the Huaraches, but the Shox are my new favorite; on and off the field.

Couldn't the fielding gloves thread, so I'll just post it here.

Whenever I click on the install.bat (after extracting it to the main mvp 2005 directory) it says it can't open packfile 'datainitstaz.big' ... and therefore the gloves don't show up in the game.

Am I doing something wrong?

Maybe your initstaz.big file is corrupted. Try replacing it with the original file from the cd.

sorry to come back at this, but I just replaced my initstaz.big file with the original one but I still have the same problem. It also says that my initstay.big cannot be unpacked, which is a file I don't even have (it also isn't on the original cd). Do you know what this problem is?

1. Are we aloud to just take your freaking awesome stuff, put it on our uniforms we create, and release it?

2. And, I'm assuming we should be listing you for credit.

Would this same principle apply if I start using templates for unis. Like, KC has a template posted and maybe someone else, I don't know. Is doing this in both instances common courtesy, common practice, common sense-of which you're now assuming I do not have.

1. It would make sense to do so, within the grounds that if you used someone else's work as a base for your mod, they should be credited in the proper documentation.

2. Read #1.

The same principle somehow applies with unis, but seeing as my templates are used a majority of the time for other projects and/or for personal use, I don't care unless someone claims "those templates are mine". It's common courtesy and a common practice for modders to give credit to one another as a sign of respect, I guess.

What do you mean? What are you taking? If you would like to take the Royals logo and put it on a Brave jersey, I think that would not only be acceptable, but also encouraged.

What KC said is pretty much the standard jist. I released my 'Total Uniform Accessories' so people can have the opportunity to add any of my junk to their uniforms, so I don't mind at all to see people using my things...

Earlier in this thread I asked re: creating dirt. You responded, to my dismay that you did not know how to create it in Photoshop.

What about this file called:Adiddas Excelsior Low_Black-dirty

Did you make that encrusted dirt yourself?

Thanks for your upload.

I guess somewhere along the line I figured out a decent way to make my shoes look dirty. I don't really have a method for it, it's just something I've started doing in the past month or so. Use some feathering, add some yellow coloring, add some noise... I dunno, you just gotta try whatever works.

Post me a close-up screenshot of the Air Zoom Clippers and I'll re-edit them. I never really check stuff before releasing it anymore, but KC assured me everything looked ok. If they indeed don't map correctly, I'll leave him a strongly worded message in bold red type...

Would you be willing to include a layer of dirt in .psd format that looks encrusted the way you put it on those shoes and (include it in your download as an update)?

After two days of trying various techniques, I've not come half as good as yours looks. My looks like a dirt stain, or smokey dirt. Yours looks encrusted. If I've ever seen beautiful dirt, that would be it.

I don't really work with PSDs, so I'm not quite sure how I would go about adding a dirt layer.

How about you just tell me the shoe you want to be dirtied and I'll dirty it up.

It is this shoe right here that I recolored:

Middle of the page. If you have specifics as to what you did for Noise and and feathering so that you won't be bothered again, that help would be appreciated very greatly.

I don't really have a method, I mainly just tweak and play around 'till I'm satisfied with my results. The main components of making dirty shoes are using noise, adding yellow via color balance, and blurring/sharpening. The noise really makes the dirt, in my opinion.

If you wouldn't mind posting a screenshot of these in-game, I'd be curious to see how they look as I've never tested any of my dirty shoes. Hope this is ok:

I've finished my opus. 13 uniforms total -- The four 2007 home/roads, one 2006 alternate, one spring training, two 2005 throwbacks, two 1980s throwbacks, one 1970s throwback, one Negro League throwback, and one fantasy concept.

If anyone would like to test these out before I release them, It'd help me catch any problems.

Spungo!

Don't think you can slink around and update your mods with out dropping in and telling us whats up! ;)

I have been meaning to ask you about the new Yard II Under Armour gloves. As in, if you still mod... MAKE EM! lol These are some sick gloves man. The master of gear needs to hook us up. I completely suck ***** at uniform stuff or I would do it myself.

Here are some pics if you ever decide to give em a go. Or if anyone else wants to try.

If Spungo's favorite face modder comes out with another Royals face, something tells me these gloves might get done quicker... bu that's just a hunch.

You got it!!! Who do you want done?

I recently busted up my shoulder so I have tons of time on my hands.

I started trying to work on the gloves but only have got to the palms and I have no clue how to do the glove itself. Heres what I got so far.

You got it, this is why I love working with you. I'd love to finally get a Zack Greinke and Ryan Shealy cyberface (I posted my textures if you'd like to fiddle with those -- http://mvpmods.com/Forums/viewtopic/t=2853...5/start=0.html). I posted a pretty good Justin Huber texture in there as well if you'd like to take a crack at it. Mitch Maier might be a good young guy to get a cyberface, he has the potential, along with Huber, to be traded to a better team, so the demand for them might be higher. Choose whoever, I just really really want a fantastic Greinke face for once -- no one has ever attempted to top his horrid default EA face.

The UA shoes will be a botch, but I've been thinking about doing them since last year, so I'll go ahead and do them already. Consider all your UA equipment needs created.
