I am proud to be both a member here and staff member since this great website began back in February of 2004. I have watched it grow every single day and I have met online some of the nicest and smartest people. We come from all walks of life and all over the world but we share the common love of baseball and of this MVP baseball game. That's why I come to this place.
A guy goes to the pharmacist and says, "Listen, these two girls are coming over this weekend, and they are hot, very hot. Would you have something to get me going all night? It's going to be a hell of a party."
The pharmacist goes in the back room, comes back with an old dusty bottle and says, "This stuff is potent: drink only one ounce of it, and I guarantee that you will be doing the wild thing all night. Let me know how it goes."
The weekend goes by and on Monday morning, the pharmacist goes to work and finds the same guy waiting for him on the door-step. The pharmacist says, "What are you doing here so early? How was your weekend?" The guy replies, "Quick, I need Blue Ice (muscle pain relief).
The pharmacist, knowing what the guy had been doing all weekend, says, "Are you crazy, you can't put that on your penis. The skin is way too sensitive."
The guy says, "No, no, It's not for that, it's for my arm."
Pharmacist: "What?? What happened?"
Guy replies, "Well...I drank the whole bottle of your potion."
A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked, "Say, Father, what causes arthritis?"
"My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man."
"Well, I'll be damned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper.
The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized.
"I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?"
"I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."
This week we zero in on a modder that during his short time here created some very useful utilities and another modder that helped organize and lead in the creation of the two new Mvp season mods that were released during the past two years.
Compmaniac joined here in late 2006 and the utilities that he made for this game were a huge help in modifying and customizing your game. He's not that well known today even though what he made is just as relevant now as it was then. But that's the purpose of this thread, to introduce quality work from modders that have been here in the past.
One of his most popular mods that he made was his base mod (featured below) where he was able to show in hi resolution dirty bases or clean bases, whichever you preferred. Downloaded over 2,000 times it just gave another dose of realism to the game.
Note: As stated in the mod description this is not a completed mod and I always wished that Compmaniac would have finished it because he was on to something here. I've tried this mod out myself and it works very well. Back up your files as always if you want to give this a go.
During the time after the Mvp 2008 was made there was always a discussion about making another season mod but after bringing it up at the beginning of each year and talking about it for awhile nothing ever came of it. There were still modders around to work on this game but what really was needed was someone to fill Krawhitham's role of being the project organizer and leader and without someone like that a mod of this kind would not be made.
Finally in 2012 a new season mod was made and it was thanks to Kyleb who put things together and who worked flawlessly with a very talented group of people that have produced two very impressive mods in the past two years. Each modder of course deserves credit for what he contributed because the mod would not have been the same without them but without Kyleb things would have not have come together.
Thank you redeck for your contribution to this thread. As you said, more people should know James Creighton's name. This guy was one of the very first stars the game ever had. And do you realize that when he got hurt and died days later the Civil War was still going on? Thanks for the history on him and I have updated his name in the players list that lists every player covered in this thread.
The work of both of these guys is prominently featured in a number of the TC mods. Picking through their uniforms was like being a kid in a candy store. I'll take one of these and one of those and one of those....
I couldn't wait to come in here during the time these uniforms were released Jim. Just when I thought I saw one that I thought to myself was my "favorite" they would come up with something else to change my mind.
One thing I never asked fizzjob was if he ever used all those White Sox uniforms in his game.
As we go to week number five we have two modders that are well known by everyone who plays Mvp baseball.
For the many dynasty players in here Dylan's work is very well known to them and his utilities that he created have been an invaluable tool for them in their dynasty play. His other specialty is the creation of accurate schedules for season mods.
Where do you start with this modder? If you have played just about any season mod or total classic mod available here you have seen Jogar's work. His talent is cyberface making and his cyberfaces are so life-like and accurate that they are some of the most downloaded mods on the website.
I have highlighted here his work on Yankee reliever Mariano Rivera. Check out the subtle differences in his 2007 version as compared to this year's version. That right there should give you an appreciation of his attention to detail.
Besides creating cyberfaces Jogar has released audio enhancements for Mvp baseball.
Just to let you two guys know I gave this topic a sticky. This is an important thread and you modders are what makes this place go. And with the off-season not that far away this thread will see a lot more action.
