Can A 2012 Total Mod Be Done?

2011 showed a great number of pieces to make MVP seem fresh again. This brings me to the question of can or even should a 2012 total mod be done? I know that the 07 and 08 mods certainly set a bar, but I don't think it has to be complete to the nth degree. What are the thoughts here?

Unfortunately, MVP 2005's engine is essentially ten years old dating back to MVP 2003. And the 07/08 Mods were put together at a golden age for MVP 2005. It was a perfect situation. EA lost out on MLB license rights which forced people to either go with 2K or Sony. and this is before the Show became the best baseball game franchise. A lot of People stuck with MVP 2005. And a lot of modders were still active at that time as the game was only a few years old. I honestly think I wouldn't be making any mods anymore if I hadn't taken a long year break from it. It's not impossible but it seems like the stars are not aligned for this one. But someone can take initiative and just complile whatever is available, go forward with it. I honestly, would just buy the latest version The Show for a current incarnation of MLB. and I will play MVP 2005 for a fix of what money cannot buy. For example, there's no substitute you can get for Dennisjames' Negro League Mod, or the all time mods here with Total Classics.

Personally, I will always have a place for MVP 2005 because it's a creative outlet for a classic game. I also still play Sierra's NASCAR Racing season 2003 on occasion. I actually stopped playing that game, too for five years just like MVP '05. Then I started recreating paint schemes of current cars. Not too long after that, I wanted to work with more than just the textures and MVP '05 faces was what I wanted to do. Perhaps, somebody can have a MVPMods reunion and get something together. The bottom line is that somebody can't do a MVP '12 alone.

Not to be a debbie downer, but this talk has happened three years in a row, and each year shows less and less interest. It never gains enough steam to go anywhere. There simply aren't enough people interested in doing this, or there aren't enough skilled people to do it. We would have better luck doing a fantasy league.

I think everyone would like to see it, but I agree with Veesmack and Homer. I just got back to playing MVP again last month and I plan on helping to keep it as updated as possible.

Bingo.

Daflyboys did come up with a great suggestion for a 2012 mod and to be honest I really hope that this does get made. And I don't want to be a Debbie Downer either, but as Homer said, talk of a new mod for Mvp has taken place for the last three years. Believe me, I do not want to kill this idea or not support it in any way. In fact, I am all for it. But for something like this to be made, there has to be one main guy who is in charge of things. And in the previous mods that was Krawitham. Many people worked on individual parts of the mod, but Kraw was the guy in charge. Do we have one here who can take his place? I don't know.

Another thing that has prevented a new mod from being made is the lack of any kind of commitment from people to actually work on the mod. Sure, you'd get a lot of people that will say they are interested in a new mod for 2012 but what they are really saying is that they would be willing to download it and not work on it.

Clearly what you really need for this to happen is to get people to say yes, I will be willing to work on a part of the mod and the people that agree to it have to stick to it. You don't need someone that says they are going to make portraits for example and then the next thing you know they haven't visited the site for three months. It is that lack of real commitment that kills projects like this around here.

Secondly, I would find out how Kraw kept everything in order and working smoothly. What kind of communication did he have with the other modders working on this, etc. Maybe Homer can let you all know how things were behind the scenes in this and how things were done if and when there is some serious commitment to this project. This mod has been made before. In 2006, 2007 and 2008. So it can be done. Many of the modders from a few years back are gone now so the big problem is finding replacements.

I literally have over 6,000 hi-res photos just from the end of June last year to the end of the season. And that doesn't count the post season. Or the separate photo gallery of Yankee pictures. I would be very happy to go through my DVD's and get the best ones for the loading screens, etc. But I will not do it unless I see other people working on this first. I have a reason for this.

Anyway, I wrote enough. Is this a good idea? It sure is. Daflyboys has his heart in the right place. But at the same time you can't ignore what Homer brought up.

One main guy is needed as you said. The others on the project need to be in charge of specific items such as uniforms, portraits, audios, cyberfaces, roster, etc...As those pieces are completed, they are sent in to the central guy to compile everything. Pieces that can be done by multiple people are broken up into teams, such as portrait packs. The two main pieces that will prevent a mod like this from working is a working roster. Rosters are a lot of work, and only one guy can really be doing it. The roster maker also needs to depend on another project manager to assign ids for portraits and cyberfaces. Once all the pieces are put together, the main guy in charge compiles it as an installer for beta testing.

Besides the rosters, the two other big glaring projects would be stadiums and overlay. Only a select few know how to do it properly, so a project like this completely depends on whether or not everyone actually commits to this. Planning has to start now and will go well into spring training.

Year after year, we get a hand full of guys who have the desire to do it, but lack the skills needed. We also have a hand full of guys with the skills to do it, but lack the desire. On top of that, there's no one person who wants to lead on the project.

As much as a total mod would be fantastic, it may be more realistic to focus on rosters, cyberfaces, portraits, and audio and not worry about updating stadiums and other stuff. It seems to me that in 2011 there was a pretty good effort by several modders to update rosters and player-related things.

And another thing I forgot to throw in. You can't expect one person to do the bulk of the work for a mod like this. And I'm thinking about someone like Dennis James, who last year made a lot of uniforms and stadiums for Mvp. I would imagine making a regular season mod would be harder to do than making a classic season mod. For example, I'm sure it was easier to get the portraits for the 1978 mod as compared to portraits from today. People like Jim and Dennis can make a classic mod by themselves because they have more time to make one too. This has to be kept in mind also. Bottom line, it brings us right back to the same thing and that is having people willing to work on the mod.

I know not many people know me around here; I usually just converted things to Xbox. I've finally purchased the PC game and look forward to being more involved in that aspect. Looking around, most of the pieces are there for a 2012 update.

Daflyboys usually stays on top of rosters.

Several people have released great cyberfaces in the past year.

The MVP Caribe crew has been giving us amazing uniform previews - would they play ball for a English 2012 mod?

Speaking with one of the MVP Caribe guys, he is only missing Yankee Stadium, Minnesota, and Miami.

Dennisjames is obviously incredible.

Toleton has been on top of portraits for a while.

Jaycee has been covering audio.

Dylan Bradbury has covered the schedule.

grmrpr1313 upated the LOCs.

An amazing art update was done for 2011 by a guy on mlbmods who's name escapes me.

Jukebox update would be easy.

The most difficult part it seems to me is the player ID list right now. Getting everybody on the same page would definitely be difficult and mlbmods seems to be MIA. Overlays will need updated as well, as Yankee4Life stated. I'm definitely not as talented as many people here are at modding, but I am knowledgeable of how this all works. I've been involved with the console version of the game for a long time and I'm super excited about finally making the move to the PC. I'd love to be involved in any way possible.

Hey man, I'm glad you finally got a copy of the PC game. Just take a look at all the total conversion mods these wonderful modders have done and you'll see for yourself that you made the right choice in getting this game.

One thing I got to correct you on is that the Mvp Caribe crew are not the ones releasing this 2012 Latino mod. From what I understand it probably won't be uploaded to their site, but I could be wrong there. I just know it's not a Caribe release.

As for everything else you said, yeah I have to admit that the people you mentioned keep up very well with the stuff they do but as I mentioned in another post, you must have one main guy who is in charge of the entire project because if you don't then it won't get done.That's what Krawhitham was when the previous mods were released. Other people were in charge of specific things with the mod like uniforms for example, but Kraw brought it all together. So far we don't have someone who wants to do what Kraw did and that's not helping this.

Again, I don't want to sound pessimistic about this because I'd love for this to happen but without this key thing happening, I don't see this mod being made even though there are people who are still around here talented enough to accomplish it.

Enjoy your PC game.

The Total Conversion Mods are what finally convinced me to make the switch. I've been looking at these works for the longest time just admiring them. I can't wait to finally use them! Absolutely incredible.

My mistake on the MVP Caribe mention. I was looking at their Facebook page and mixed it up with MVP Baseball Latinos, who are doing great work.

An amazing art update was done for 2011 by a guy on mlbmods who's name escapes me.

So I'm that guy who made the updated artwork (with help from Homer and Dennis James). I'd be willing to update it to MVP 12 standards BUT like everyone else, I'm willing to do it if we get definite yeses from people.

If we do get yeses, then we need to set a date and shoot for it. But, again, like everyone else is saying, we need one main guy to wrangle everyone in.

Could we give MVP one last hurrah? I think we could. We just need people to start committing. So...

I'm in. I'll get artwork created (need help packaging it for computer) but I'll get the design work done.

Very cool. Your stuff last year was amazing. I'd be willing to give packaging it a shot.

Jaycee has offered to help with audio and Daflyboys is working on rosters, but could use some help with the minor leagues.

I can set up a Cloud service if it looks like we have a team.

Anybody aware of anyone doing 2012 stadium and uniforms? MVP Baseball Latinos is working on some but it appears that they have their own mod in mind.

Hey Guys: I must tell you that I love playing MVP since your mod was introduced. It gives me the most fun because I like things as current as reasonably possible....I guess that's the Dr. part expressing itself It makes it so much more entertaining when you guys turn your magic into action. Just to give you an example, there is an NHL 09 site that keeps your game current for at least a week at a time. Goalie masks change, people go on IR, people are sent to the bush leagues and players are constatntly trying new equipment. Being an OLD hockey player, I was changing sticks like underwear and different "lucky laces" ect.ect. In a nutshell, I think it would be great if you guys wanted to give of your time and efforts. I would definitely be bonkers about it. For what it is worth, that is my opinion.

Thought I'd update people on where this potential mod stands. We have:

Audio: Jaycee20 has offered speech updates.

Cyberfaces: Jedinstvo

Frontend artwork: RJSim

Rosters: Daflyboys and ar_key have offered rosters.

Stadiums: nani1379, however he is missing Yankee Stadium, Minnesota and Miami.

Uniforms:nani1379, although he is missing 3 of these aswell.

We have permissions from jogar, Veesmack and Dylanbradbury.

ar_key has offered to work on portraits, but updates aren't available yet from MLB Pressbox.

The only glaring omission that comes to mind would be an updated overlay. Updated walk-up music would be great, as would opening movies. Am I missing anything?

More volunteers would certainly make this go smoother, but we definitely have the pieces to make something nice. At some point, the player ID list will need to be worked on.

I am going to try and put a big dent into the 40 man roster effort tonight. If I can get 2 full divisions done, including correct numbers.... I'll be a happy camper.

Speaking of overlay....if anyone has the knowledge as to how to: 1) get rid of the red/blue/grey/X-man symbol circles showing on a poorly controlled pitch I would be grateful; 2) if anyone knows how to successfully move the pitch speed to a static spot on the overlay as you would see in a TV broadcast, again, see above!

You might want to ask Trues about this. He's made quite a lot of overlays for Mvp over the years. All you'd have to do is check the download area and a huge number of the overlays there are courtesy of him.

I was working on the Marlins, but veesmack beat me to it, but I may try to get his permission to update the textures. I think I'll try to tackle the Blue Jays next, then maybe some minor league uniforms.

Could we just use MVP 08 as a base and update from there? It would be so much easier, since the minor league uniforms are in that one.

Unless there are any objections from the MVP 08 crew, that would be the best and easiest route for sure.

Nani1379 has apparently completed all but 3 jerseys for MVP Baseball Latino, but I'm not sure which 3 are remaining. It would be nice to have those 3 to round the out the set.

Most of those guys aren't around any more. If I might make a suggestion since I know how the mod was put together, just do an add-on to the 08 mod. It'll be much easier for you to deal with. I already have a 2010 facepack addon, and you can just build from there.

If we can go that route (of an add-on to 08), then you could count me in. Frankly my Navy duties won't allow me much time to help create a full scale mod, but I can contribute some things here and there, especially on the uniforms side of things.

I think this is what you are looking for: http://www.mvpmods.c...ds&showfile=919

It's an MVP2004 file, but it might work. Here's what the readme says:

Rolie's Icons file: NO missed-pitch indicators v1.0- Altered by KKKerryWood34

Included is the "igcrsr.fsh" file that contains all the icons designed by Rolie as shown in the screenshot. The ONLY thing I did was eliminating the red/blue/gray indicators that appear when the pitcher has missed a pitch. I felt that this contributed to too many homeruns and hits and overall made hitting too easy, so I got rid of them.

The file belongs in "C:\Program Files\EA SPORTS\MVP Baseball 2004\data\igshapes"...PLEASE make a back-up of the original 1st!!

If I have sent you a Dropbox invitation, please confirm it. With each confirmation, our storage size increases. Ideally, I would like to have a section for uploads and a section with a full working game available that we could all test.

I believe I will be able to create a new player ID list based off of ar_key's new roster when that is available. Portraits and audio will be able to use that as a reference.

We could still use some manpower, especially with portraits.

Thanks!

All I want to say is if kyeb manages to pull this off and gets everyone on board to create a new and updated mod for this game, everyone should stop what they are doing before they download this thing and take five seconds out of their life to thank him. I"m serious. We have a lot of modders in here who create many different things for Mvp and the 2K series but the one thing that they have all in common is that 99% of the people who download their work don't bother to say thank you.

I could help with portraits and could provide FTP space if needed. Do we have hi-res sources at our disposal for the porraits? I also have some cool (at least I think so) home plate logos, ala MLB Network that I would love to have in the game, if anyone can point me in the right direction to get them in. Also, help wherever else I can.

Thanks to all that are stepping up in this effort. MVP is still top dog!! :-)

Thank you both for your interest. If you both PM me your email addresses, I can get the invites sent out.

I believe Toleton is on top of many of the MLB portraits, but collection and division of labor for MiLB portraits is something that will still need addressed soon.

Unfortunately we lost the id list when mlbmods shut down. However, the latest version posted on this site was here:http://www.mvpmods.c...=1

it's at least a good starting point. It would probably be best if someone was going to take it on, that they revive the thread and keep it updated. You might try emailing totte though. He may have kept a more recent copy in google docs if you can get a hold of him.

I'll try messaging Totte. I was experimenting the other night with transferring attrib.dat from Word to Excel and had some good (and moderately clean) results. Since it's been so long since the list had been updated, I figured it better to let ar_key (who is making full A-MLB rosters) free reign to assign numbers in order to get the rosters done quickly. He can use MVPEdit to verify no duplicate numbers. I can then create the ID list with names, faces, and numbers extracted from his attrib.dat file. Audio and portrait makers will then be able to follow that list, which could then be posted for everybodys use in a new thread.

I'm certainly open to ideas.

Thanks for the support. I know you said we could use your 2010 facepack, but I have a file on my computer labeled "2011_facepack.7z." Do you know who this belonged to? I'm sure I got it off of mlbmods but I wasn't able to track down the source using archive.org.

I was experimenting the other night with transferring attrib.dat from Word to Excel and had some good (and moderately clean) results.

I don't know if you are aware or not, but there is an extremely simply way to get the attrib.dat file into Excel. Simply make a copy of attrib.dat and rename it to attrib.csv (comma separated values). You can then immediately open the attrib.csv file in Excel. Hide or delete the columns you don't care about and you can then quickly sort the file by portait or face ID to get sorted lists.

Thanks Jim, that's actually exactly what I was aiming for.

Yeah it was my addon for that too. Glad you got it. You should upload it here since I don't have it myself :) It's just several faces I have in my classics facepack, but was packaged up to fit over the top of the 2010 pack. I'm sure there are even more recent ones in my classics pack. Here's my notes on the roster changes that need to be made to make it fit:

Sure thing. I'll get it up and hopefully an admin can change it over to your name.

Also, when we get some "working" files together and I can get some in-game footage, I will gladly put together the opening movie for MVP 2012. I know Adobe Premiere video editing software and think I can put together something decent.

Here is what I made for the TC 1915 mod that dennisjames put together.
