About This File
PNC Park for MLB 2K9 by thecurseofMAPCO.
1.) Back up the original file.
2.) Extract stadium_pip.iff 2K Sports/MLB 2k9 directory.
I created all of these updates myself, but a big thanks goes to DonSpa because I got a lot of references from his update to find ad locations and to get a few ad ideas.
Version 1 updates:
OF wall ads (LF to RF) - State Farm, Verizon, Bud Light, Southwest.com, Comcast Triple Play, and Trib Total Media. There should be an ad between State Farm and Verizon for Inside Pirates Baseball and a Heinze ad in RCF, but 2kSports did not place enough ads along the walls. The Inside Pirates Baseball is in my update however, and repeats throughout the stadium.
LF Scoreboard - Added the four big ads for Trib Total Media, Allegheny General Hospital, PNC Bank, and Highmark (which unfortunately must share its space with another ad). Replaced the out-of-town scoreboard part with a Consol Energy ad. Replaced the Duty Gasoline ad with a large Pirates logo graphic. I used a texture effect on that to try to make it look like a scoreboard graphic, but it doesn't seem to show up very well in the game.
Clemente Wall Ads - Since 2kSports made the three Clemente Wall ads share space with three of the OF wall ads, and since I hate the split ads, I created larger ads for the same companies to create consistent ads. They are Bud Light Drinkability, Southwest.com $49 Fares, and Verizon It's the Network, but unless I'm psychic, these three ads aren't there in real life. All three companies probably have ads on the Clemente wall though, so if I see the real ads, I'll try to update them.
Clemente Wall Scoreboard - Added the "21" graphic and team names to the scoreboard, but I'm still working on updating the actual scoring info.
Dugouts - Added the trim to the dugout roofs (neweracap.com, New Era logo, PIRATES.com). Added New Era logo, "New Era Fits" text, and "PIRATES.com" text to the back wall, and the New Era logo trim above the bench.
Backstop ads - Geico, Budweiser, Giant Eagle, NewsTalk 104.7, Sugardale, LaRoche College, FSNinsider.com, and Wheeling Casino.
Things I will hopefully update in the future:
Missing building names in the skyline
The Bud Light, Southwest.com, and Verizon ads in RF if they have real-life counterparts
Get rid of the green concrete in the seating areas
