I just wanted to start a new thread to preview mods of players, jerseys and eventually stadiums. My old thread had a redundant title since I've been back. First of all, I would like to thank all modders past, present and future. It wouldn't do justice to name everybody who is responsible for my abilities in modding MVP Baseball 2005. But I must thank Trues for never giving up on this site. I feel very fortunate that MVPMods still exists today.

So here's what I have at the moment:

I made a new Cal Ripken but I admit it doesn't look quite right to me. What do you guys think?

post a side by side so we can see. I think he just looks too burly. Maybe use a smaller head size and make his neck thinner. I'll wait for the side by side, but possibly make the chin more pointy and a smaller jaw. The resemblance is there though, just looks like he's juicing :)

Oh and for those who were wondering about me getting oedit to work in XP Mode, here's more proof:

I used that photo I found on ebay. I am just not satisfied with area around his eyes. My older version looks more like him even though this photo has better details

I really like the facial hair detail on Gamel!

I made some changes to Cal:

Napoli's performance has been inspiring. I'm not talking about just the playoffs. It all began with him getting traded away by the Angels in January (which ended his relationship with the team that started in 2000). For Anybody who's had individuals or organizations give up on them, it's crushing. However, Mike did what anybody with heart would do in his situation; He worked on improving himself. Even if Texas doesn't win the World Series, I've got to congratulate Mike Napoli on his perserverance.

I made a roberto Clemente before my extended hiatus at Mvpmods. I really liked it when I made it but I did very little oedit work. When I returned to modding, I noticed I really was dissatisfied with it.

So I started the the head shape from scratch and did some editing to the texture.

Please give me feedback on this since he is a classic player who I didn't watch growing up.

Also, is his skin tone too dark?

(Clemente.jpg is the most up to date version. I have not changed the profile angle)

I think I sent you the Whitey I made before. I started all over. And this time, it turned out a whole lot better. I used a completely different photograph, too. I'm gonna start using Kraws install thingy after installing one of the updates. I didn't realize it was an 2008 update and not the 2005 one I already had. that was the issue. but I'm gonna hold off on using it until I need to.

BTW incredible detail work with Brandon Morrow. His eyes seem a bit slanted, nonetheless, you're work continues to impress.

Here's an update of Whitey Ford. I noticed there needed to be more space between his eye brows.

quietear, thanks for the suggestion on Brandon Morrow. I noticed his eyes were too slanted too. But aside from moving an individual eye around, I have have not tried adjusting just part of the eye worrying that I could seriously mess them up. The mouth and eyes need utmost caution when modding them because they can be messed up to the point where a face becomes unusuable after many hours of modding if something is done incorrectly. I made some subtle changes to the inner corners and middle of the eye but didn't mess with the pupils themselves and it turned out fine.

again, thanks quietear for not being so quiet about your suggestion. I was so ready to say, Morrow's eyes are already slanted a bit but that's taking the easy way out. I knew it was true they were too slanted and so did you. :)

Since I am not an artist like yourself, I wasn't sure whether I should make the observation or not. Thanks for your kind reply

I am in awe of the work that you, Jedvinsto, and Homer produce for the mvp community (not to mention all the amazing cyberface artists who have contributed before).

That Brandon Morrow face is absolutely outstanding! The skin tone, shadowing, and hair texture is almost photo-realistic. Excellent work!

Thanks for the input, guys. Here's Joe Carter. I've been meaning to make him the past couple weeks but have opted on making others with high resolution photos. It's tough going from using really nice high resolution head shots and then using ones that are low resolution. Everything in moderation is the way to go all the time...

Also, here are some changes to Jackie Jensen, who is the first player to play in the All-Star Game, World Series and Rose Bowl. He is also the 1958 American League MVP. He probably would be more famous if he didn't play the same position as Mickey Mantle while breaking in with Yankees. That and he had a fear of flying which ultimately ended his career.

In addition, here's another member of the 1992/1993 Blue Jays whippin' it good, Devon White. He appears on numerous classic teams including 1986 California Angels, 1992/93 Toronto Blue Jays and 1997 Florida Marlins. Many will remember Devon's catch in the 1992 World Series which would have started a triple play but the umpire incorrectly called the the third out safe.

thanks, dude. What I will do is make these jerseys with the fonts you provided. And whenever the marlins decide to sell personalized jerseys, I will pull the numbers off their site and update my files with the better resolution versions. check you pms within the next day and I will have something soon for ya!

BTW the home fonts were off but I figured how to make them the right size.

These jerseys are definitely an acquired taste. Kinda reminds me it's a colorful scheme that's essentailly orange and black like the orioles or giants. Except there's a bit more color.

okay, here's a preliminary version of the 2012 Marlins home jersey. I for the life of me don't really like them all that much. this replaces the spring training jerseys. I didn't edit the hockey mask and manager jacket yet. It's beta but good enough and gives you the idea. I really have no incentive to make any other versions. Check out the forums for other modder's versions of the Marlin's new uni's. There will be more effort and time spent on it than anything I'm interested in doing at this time.

This is what Pujols might look like in this jersey. Uh, no comment

de nada my friend. I was having fun with this, but in the end. I felt like I wasted my time with it. All in all I spent about 8 hours into high resolution templates. But I ended making it in lo resolution to coincide with the numbers. The numbers are the most important thing to me and the resolution just isn't good enough. I already lost intest in making these jerseys. I think it's because there is no history with the Marlins with their new jerseys yet. I like looking at baseball and taking the historic approach. I couldn't help but think about my Marlins roster that has members of the 1997 and 2003 team and Loria throwing the old hat away is kind of symbolic of saying who cares about the history of the Marlins including their World Series titles. I'm not jumping on this bandwagon.

Here's my own version of George Brett. I believe the photo has been used before but it's perhaps the only good photo of him. Unfortunately, Brett's eye brows are not present. I'm gonna make another player who has the same problem who also played in Kansas City. I guess if you live in Kansas City, then your eye brows disappear. lol.

I've had "modder's block" lately I've been sitting on that photo of Brett for quite a while. I've done five consecutive non high resolution faces in Ford, Jensen, Carter, White and Brett. I feel like I want to make some players from the early 1900's. Has anybody made a Jim Thorpe, Burleigh Grimes or or decent Rogers Hornsby? I had TC Phase 10 on my computer but I did a system restore and I think I accidentally deleted it. I just have the MEP and see there's a face for Rogers.

I did Hornsby awhile back. the others would be a warm welcome, because I haven't found a good enough photo to do thorpe. I know what you mean by the low res photos. They can be quite the challenge. I think we used the same photo for brett. you can see my versions below too.

I went and did some more editing to Brett. Since he's a Bats Left/Throws Right guy I realized his face gets reversed when he's batting. I didn't know what caused the reversal thing but now I know. So I had to fade out the wrinkle on his left cheek because it was so noticible when he batted. And it also looked like a scar. hahaha. I made his ears a bit bigger vertically, narrowed his nostrils and brought his eyes down a bit. I think he looks more like him.

I do like your Hornsby. I'm not gonna tackle him. Yeah, there's really only a few pictures of Thorpe when he was young. I was reading up about him and how he was an extra and stuntman in hollywood. Pretty sad story because he had it real tough for him after sports. I am glad his family was able to get back his Gold Medals from the 1912 Olympics. He did break the rules unintentionally but the statute of limitations of the Olympics was 30 days to take away medals at the time. They took his medals away half a year later in Jan 1913.

As I mentioned above, I was gonna make another player whose eyebrows faded away and played in Kansas City. I was talking about David Cone.

Glad you took out the wrinkle. Looks a lot better, as it really resembles him in his later career. It amazes me how much different he looked younger. I think for him, it's all in the mouth and nose to get a resemblance.

Good luck with Cone. I want to make him but all the pics suck.

You're right with Brett and how different he looks when he was older. I think he looks a lot less athletic aside from having more wrinkles. Most noticibly I notice it in his neck muscles. When he started DH-ing and playing 1B, is when I think he started to change a lot. He kind of aged fast after the late 80's. Maybe it was cigarettes lol. He didn't take a lot of photographs. Photographers were probably scared of him with the whole pine tar thing. just kidding.

In all of Cone's photographs, I can never see his nostrils and usually don't see his eyebrows. I guess some guys are more photogenic on camera.

I was bored last night so I made a rendition of the 1938 Brooklyn Dodgers jersey. This is the year after the Dodgers wore green for one year. In my opinion, this is the first year of the current that emphasizes blue. This is the year that Babe Ruth was the first base coach for most of the year. I made the jersey as a modern retro jersey that uses the regular jersey slots rather than it being classic. Thus I have the batting helmet and low socks design.

Congratulations to Jose Reyes for inking that guaranteed contract. And congratulations to the Marlins for spending some money. It will be a matter of time before we see if everything will pay dividends.

As for the Marlins jerseys, I redid the numbers. I finally grabbed the numbers off MLB's website including each individual letter of the alphabet. It may be time consuming, but I won't settle for less. I also made a hockey catcher's mask in the MVP style as well as a managers jacket that mimics the black alternate jersey in a way. I have uploaded both high resolution textures and low resolution textures of the jerseys. If you got the previous version, uploaded in my thread, you are missing out on a better version of the home jersey. Honestly, I expect to update this when the 2012 season starts. I believe they are gonna actually wear black hats/helmets with the orange jerseys but I'm not really sure yet. I think it would look better that way.

And here's one of my favorites, Kirby Puckett. He is missed in the baseball world.

2012 marks a 10 year anniversary of the passing of Darryl Kile. While playing with the Cardinals, Kile died on June 22, 2002 of a heart attack in his hotel room. Kile was schedlued to start against the cubs that very day. Darryl was a three time all-star and known for throwing a spectacular 12-6 Curve ball that was noted as being MLB's Prime Nine top 9 Curve Balls of all time. Furthermore, Darryl Kile threw a no-hitter in 1993 against the Mets when he was only 22 years old.

Eric Bruntlett and Jeremy Reed. Eric was part of the 2008 WS Champion Phillies team. Reed batted .397 in 2004 in 18 games for the Mariners.

Two Calfornnia Golden Bears in Tyler Walker and Ryan Drese had relative success in the majors. Ryan had 14 wins for the 2004 Rangers. Walker had 23 saves for the Giants in 2005.

Brad Davis slugged a grand slam vs the Cardinals in 2010. Davis was Jered Weaver and Jason Vargas' catcher in college.

Here is Bob Brenly, current broadcaster for the Chicago Cubs.

Bob was an All-Star in 1984 for the San Francisco Giants

was a bench coach for the Giants under Roger Craig (not the 49er running back but Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher) and Dusty Baker.

from 1995 to 2000, Bob worked as a broadcaster for Fox

In his managerial rookie year in 2001, Brenly famously guided the Diamondbacks to their first World Series championship.

This is based off of his MVP Baseball 2004 face.

In case nobody got my joke above, the above player is Damian Miller. he appears in MVP 2005 as Roger Chamberlain because he was a replacement player during the 1994 Strike. His fake name as a replacement player was Don Cross.

Below, is Ducky Schofield's grandson, Jayson Werth. He hit 20 home runs last year but had a pretty dismal slugging percentage at .389. Come on, Jayson! his uncle Dick Schofield, had a slugging percentage of .397 in 1986! And nobody would think he was athletically gifted as Jayson.

But Ducky, Dick and Jayson all have World Series rings. Albeit, Dick didn't play in the 1993 post season with the Blue Jays. Ducky was Bill Mazeroski's teammate with the 1960 Pirates. And Jayson, of course, was a member of the 2008 Phillies. Three generations of Winners!

The Drews are perhaps the highest paid trio of brothers in baseball with least number of all-star game appearances. Blame it on Scot Borass and not Tim Drew whatsoever. Not quite the DiMaggio's, but J.D. (or really D.J.) and Stephen have had solid careers while Tim appeared in parts of 5 major league seasons as a pitcher. The Drews hold their own because it really is difficult making it to the majors and even harder staying in the show.

Yu lookin pretty good. He looks like he's serious about winning the Cy Young to the point he might actually kill opposing hitters. Yeah, I hate it when i want to make a player and they smile to the point where it's hard to make their face. I wanted to make Max Scherzer and his smile just killed it for me. Usually the eyes are the last thing I do, but I made Max Scherzer's eyes first. Maybe this new year will yield less smiles. It would be nice for face modders if the photographers just antagonated the players while taking their picture rather than trying to make them laugh. I took a photo for background acting at the central company. They said I looked evil (perhaps like Yu looks a bit in your face). And that made me laugh and they took a picture of me basically laughing
