Can A 2012 Total Mod Be Done?

428 posts in this topic

So will this be a complete install mod or a multi-piecing together when all is said and done? My suggestion/question is that if it is the latter, could there be a separate DL area, at least temporarily (several months) just for '12 UL's?

It was mentioned earlier that it would be best to do it over MVP 08 but we're getting close to where it could almost be it's own install I think. I'll have to talk to Jim or DennisJames about it.

Well if we do it over MVP 08, the biggest advantage would be the uniforms that are already there, especially the minor leagues. If we do a straight install, then can we at least carry over the previous minor league sets from 08 to save us some work?

The thing with that is that you don't know what teams have changed uniforms since 2008.

It's better to have the 08 minor league unis as a base though than stuff from the original '05.

if face updates are made that i want to add, i'll add them as they are done. otherwise the 2012 facepack is done and can be checked off the list. test it with a compatible roster. those of you who helped with the pressboxes should be able to find it uploaded.

I could ask someone who has more time to put minor league team rosters in MS Word, when they will be set for Opening Day? Then i will start work on minor league teams update, creating and deliting players.

Thanks, i do not have enough time now to do this.

I'm downloading it now. I'm hoping to have time to go through it today.

What's the procedure for adding/requesting new player ID?

My first roster set will be 25 man rosters only. Haven't had the same time to devote as last year with my job change. Looking at a PC screen a good part of the day doesn't exactly motivate me to come home and do the same. But I need to get a base of players and get the teams and ID's correct as you guys are doing them. I'm sure there will be plenty of mistakes.

Like ar_key said, we already took care of this. However, if you could track down starting lineups and batting orders (noting if its against a LHP or RHP), I'm sure that would be a huge help. Thanks!

2K12 doesn't do anything for me either. I used to give it a try each year when the demo would come out on XBox Live, then the next day I would start updating MVP.

I'm close to releasing Phase 1 of BaseUp Rosters for this year..... which will simply be 25 man rosters for all MLB teams, which will include some tweaks on certain players and thanks to Toleton, some created players. 15 and 60 day DL guys will be on the squad as anticipated. Guys who are set to return for after the 1st half of the year won't be built in.

Lots of work to be done. All I can speak on is the uniforms. I am compiling uniform sets from all over and even creating some never before released throwbacks. For me, it will be another week or two at least. I am in the Navy and internet access on the ship is almost non-existent, but that doesn't mean I'm not working.

Pretty much this. While previous versions like 08 set the bar maybe a bit higher than we can reach, we're not going to release anything that's sloppy.

Things are certainly moving each day, even though you don't hear from us. Bctrackboi is busy organizing uniform and uniform select screens, selecting the best ones throughout the years of MVPMods while incorporating nani's uniforms as they are released. On top of that, he's creating new uniforms that you can see in his preview thread. They're fantastic.

Currently, I've got about several things going. I've been maintaining the player ID list. ar_key is sending me his rosters one organization at a time. I'm checking them for errors, setting lineups, adding cyberfaces, and noting portraits that we don't have.

Kst has done a great job pounding all of the MLB portraits, but there are still some necessary portraits to be added. Initially, we had some people volunteer to do portraits, but I haven't heard back from many people on that front. I'm starting a list, so if anybody wants to step up, it'll be ready.

Also, I've been re-organizing the minor leagues. Many changes have been made. Team ID's have to be switched around, uniforms, logos, etc. This has been quite a challenge and the team audio for the minor leagues still needs sorted out. A few new ones need created. This is another area that I could really use someone to step up. With that, I've made a list of all the minor league team logos that we need.

We need brand new logos for:

Reno Aces

Visalia Rawhide

Gwinnett Braves

Winston-Salem Dash

Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Tuscon Padres

Charlotte Stone Crabs

Richmond Braves

Salem Red Sox

These are the ones I've found that need an update:

Syracuse Chiefs

Oklahoma City RedHawks

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Daytona Cubs

Dunedin Blue Jays

Again, if anybody can do these, it would be awesome. I've had one person submit a Tuscon Padres logo, so thanks for that.

Also, I've been going through the photos that Y4L uploaded. I've begun selecting and cropping certain ones to replace any remaining artwork that RJSim didn't replace, but this takes time. RJSIm's frontend is complete.

DennisJames is still putting out great stadium updates and deserves a big thanks.

Homer completed the 2012 facepack and Jedinstvo is still putting out new faces, a big shout out to them.

Many top modders who released works in the past have given permission to have their work included.

Basically, everyone involved in the project is working hard and I'm thankful for each and every one of them. But without more people that can step up and knock out some of these necessary things, it's just going to take the team longer to get to them.

That really should be the last update that you give these people kyleb. Of all the things that Krawhitham hated to deal with when the 06,07 and 08 mods were coming out were questions like this asking when it is going to be released. "When it is out, it is out!" should be good enough for ANYONE from here on out.

But just watch...they'll keep asking and asking.

I'm prepared for that. I mostly wanted to ask for a bit of help. If even one person decides to grab a tutorial and start putting out some content, it's worth it.

I understand that and I hope that happens. But these impatient people in here have always driven me nuts. That's why Total Classics mods are not announced and talked about. They just appear when they are completed.

Yank.... the problem is that this is the type of approach and communication in the past that sometimes made this site unpleasant to visit. If someone wants to give an update on what they're handling....who cares? This is a video game on a video game site. And on a 7 year old game at that. It's not like it's big business. If the impatient people bother you, then just PM them. What does it really matter?

I understand. I just flashed back to when the 08 mod was being made and the huge amount of people that would post daily because that mod wasn't out as fast as they wanted it. Some of them would be pretty upset because the mod was not out when they wanted it to be.

I'm not personally bothered by people asking. People can wait and be happy or wait and be unhappy, doesn't affect me either way - I don't know them and I don't owe them anything. I just want to make something that I and the people that worked on it can enjoy, if somebody else digs it, cool.

The moral of the story is if anybody wants it out quicker, they can learn how to make me a Charlotte Stone Crabs logo :p .

Just wanted to say I'm really glad to hear that you guys are taking the initative and putting in some serious work to make a 2012 mod. I really appreciate the hard work, I can only imagine how tidious some of the tasks are to get it done. Take your time with all of it, don't let a couple a people saying "when will it be done" bug you. They're just excited because this is a HUGE deal. Good luck and thank you so much.

Homer has done a great job. Maybe a little too quickly done because many cayberfaces not look very well (Pujols, Josh Johnson, Gavin Floyd, Roy Halladay ...) I do not know why we all rush to the new mode, the season has just started so it has time to do new MOD 2012. The most important thing is to do the job well, not fast.

Let me fill you in on something. Homer has been making cyberfaces for years now and his work can be found in many total conversion mods on this website. He has literally made hundreds of cyberfaces for Mvp and to be honest this is the first negative remark I've read about his work. Homer's work with cyberfaces is just as good as yours if not better.

You did not understand me. Homer's works are better than mine, but some players have changed at intervals of several years. Many faces of players example 2007 and today has changed, so the cyberfaces that player should be different. Homer did not have much time because there are private business, and I am told that in a hurry and missed something. I did not say that his works are bad .......

I've been out of the MVP 2005 world for a few years now, but just got the desire to start playing a baseball video game again and thought I'd check this out. I can't believe this is still going, and I think it's awesome you guys are still working away on this. Whenever it's done, I can't wait to play.

Will there be super-detailed instructions to install for people like myself who don't remember how any of the modding works?

Regards,

I don't check in that much anymore, but I just wanted to give my support for this mod. I know from experience with my MVP 2004 Total Conversion Mods how busy and stressful putting something together like this can be. I wish you all the best and am glad someone is taking the initiative to create another total conversion mod. If you need any tips about creating a compilation installer for all the mods, feel free to ask. Also, I can contribute my bigger pitch meter tweak if anyone is interested.

Let's all try to stay on the same page and try to keep the positive feeling that has been around here.

I'm pretty sure what Jed is referring to is his own work-in-progress faces that he makes changes and updates to. Since the 2012 facepack is complete and zipped up, he means that his faces that are included aren't as good as they may eventually be as he makes changes.

Jed, you can always release facepack updates since numbers are assigned. If there are any faces you feel really need updated in the facepack, I'll have time before launch to update them.

I would love some help with an installer when I get to that step.

I'm not familiar with the pitch meter tweak, but if it looks like most people would like it included, I'll add it in.

Thanks!

Sure, let me know if I can help...my pitch meter tweak is just a minor little mod I did that makes the pitch meter the original size again (the meter was made smaller in the MVP 08 mod to increase the difficulty level in pitching).

Out of curiosity, is it possible to add new people into the Heroes and Legends roster, like people who retired between 05 and now (Junior or Randy Johnson) or people who should have been (Drysdale or Koufax, maybe Pete Rose or George Brett)?

My guess would be yes, but it would take a little doing and you have to know exactly what you are doing. I don't see why someone like Ken Griffey Jr could replace another player on either one of the rosters. Again, I am just guessing here because I never had the desire to do this. Someone here on this site who is more proficient with the rosters and Mvp Edit can either confirm what I am saying or correct my mistake.

Yes it's possible, but it's somewhat time consuming to do. It's not an awful idea, but it would be kind of far down my list of priorities at the moment.
