    2014 Roster Update
    MLB 2K14 Roster Update Project


    This started off as a personal project just to update portraits and transfer players. Since then I've developed it further by adding new players and doing full re-rates. So far I'm basing my re rates off the last official 2K roster update from 2K13 for the 360. This should give a good baseline on player ratings for this year.

    The goal of this project is to create a roster update that mirrors a 2K roster update. That means it's yours to customize with cyberfaces, team colors, etc. Nothing extra will be added on. This way you only add what you want to add and nothing is prepackaged. This roster will also be 100% franchise compatible which means the Astros will NOT be in the AL. This will allow full functionality (no crashes, missing standings, etc.) at the cost of realism.

    What will be included:
    Fully updated player portraits (Semi) Accurate 40-man rosters Re-rate of all players Franchise ready Salaries adjusted Progress

    Blue Jays
    Red Sox
    White Sox

    Demo Preview

    Here's a link to a demo of what I completed so far. It's unfinished and still needs touch ups on some finished teams. Take a look and feedback is welcome. Portrait file not included.

    Future Plans

    There's no guarantee this will ever be finished. If it is, it would be by the end of the season. Generally it takes 2-3 hours per team to get to it a finished phase. Yet, as the season goes on, lots of transactions occur which cause teams to be tweaked before the roster is even complete.

    I'm hoping that once it's completed I can go through and do equipment edits but that would take a lot of additional time.

    I'm not going to solicit help for this project but if you're up for the challenge doing a few teams here and there would speed this along. I have a strict regiment for how each team should be updated so it would be a challenge. I can be fairly OCD,

    Well either way they look great and I would hardly call me a legend, lol. I stopped because I just got bored and fed up with franchise and sim stats. I was intrigued though to learn the patch was actually released so I might give it another try. No matter how bad the game is there's just an allure with modding and then playing with your creations.

    Don't think you were around when i was modding but you're stadiums look great. I don't remember but did the game already have that "wet" effect on the dirt or did you add it in? If so I think it looks great but might need to be toned down a bit.
  4. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic It Looks Like The Patch Was Released   

    Wow, I can't believe this was released. I might have to make a comeback...

    Anyone actually find out definitely if the patch notes KC posted are included in the patch? All you have to do is test the pitcher fatigue bug and see if it's still there.

    Skin tones were fixed with Redditor, so a value of 3 is going to be different in Redditor than a value of 3 in Ty's editor. I would ignore the skin tone for now unless you know which is which in redditor.
  6. DetroitStyle added a post in a topic Mlb 2K12 Date Fix On The Way!   

    I wouldn't be that upset about not having a patch. They really didn't adjust anything on the field. They adjusted angles that players take when running to the dugout and other minor animation hitches That's it. Nothing that would truly change your experience. I'm surprised their even going to patch the date bug. In fact, I doubt they will (for PC users). If it's something that requires a gamefile to be edited/updated it will not release on the PC. If it's an issue with their servers then it will release on all platforms. That's just my two cents.

    Could be a NL thing. Some pitchers just do better in one league rather than the other.

    What's the deal with Burnett this year? I just saw his line last night on MLB Quick Pitch and he's 13-3 with a 3 ERA. Must be a second wind for him.

    I probably should mention that you need to use TiT to install the portraits.

    Here's a decent article on what happened:

    Basically sponsors will drop her because shes not a winner, it's that simple. Nike isn't going to sponsor someone who didn't even qualify for the medal round. There are no second chances either. At 17 her days of gymnastics are over. In four years she'll be 21 which is a lifetime in that sport. There's a reason you only ever see 15,16,17 year olds compete. So she had one shot this year to be the "poster child" for U.S. and even world gymnastics and blew it.

    Speaking of which, anyone following the Olympics? The U.S.'s top gymnast Jordyn Wieber, who was expected to win it all had an unprecedented collapse. Her career as a gymnast is essentially over as all her sponsors are jumping ship, and she not eligible for college scholarships.

    Btw, she's 17. 17! How do you 1) put that much pressure on a 17 year old and 2) how do you help her cope with a situation she probably doesn't fully understand.

    Nice! It's a lot less distracting than the bright red original one.

    My very first mod! I'll do a larger portrait pack later on but this is just a test to see if any improvements need to be made.
    Use the TiT to install the portrait. It's #0482
