Modders Of The Week

Recommended Posts

This thread that I plan on updating weekly will feature some of the work that he has contributed to the website that you can find in the download section. Modders from the past who are no longer active on the site will be covered as well as our current more well-known modders of today. My purpose is to give recognition to different modders each week and to show new users and those who have been here for awhile what is in our download area.

If there are any modders you feel should be in this thread please make a post in here. I've compiled a list but it is not completed.

I'm going to start off this week by calling attention to some of the mods created by Trues and Jim825.

Trues

If you are looking for a good looking overlay to put in your game chances are Trues has already made it. While he is known for making various overlays for Mvp and now 2K12 this is not all he is known for.

These two mods alter the appearance of the ball in MVP:

Hi-Res MLB Baseball

Hi-Res MLB Baseball (Dirty Version)

Some overlays

ESPN Overlay

Chicago Cubs Custom Team Overlay

FOX Sports Network Overlay Bay Area. This is one of many he made for Fox Sports Net.

Some mods for 2K12:

Fielding and pitching markers for MLB 2K12

Wrigley Field for MLB 2K12

Mvp Mods Overlay for MLB 2K12

Jim825

Where do you start? If you are a Total Classics fan you know all about him and the work he has done with those mods. You can be sure that when you download one of his classic season mods that everything included in it is accurate because of his attention to detail.

Besides creating these mods he has a datafile that he has updated many times and it is one of the best ones out there to use.

Combo Datafile version 5.0

Classic Overlay installer

Jim's Total Classics mods: 1941,1946, 1951, 1956, 1974, 1975 and 1978.

Also:

Total Classics Best of the 50s & 60s
Total Classics Best of the 70s & 80s
Total Classics Best of the 80s & 90s

Total Classics Walk Through History

and lastly Total Classics Phase 10

(The links for these season mods were not provided here because they are on the main page for easy access.)

Thank you.

Great idea. There are a ton of modders both past and present that deserve to be singled out!

He was a good kid. And if you mean CTS screens, there was a guy named abc006 that for awhile there was churning them out like crazy. Some others were too

Didnt Companiac once make a schedule generator? Or is my memory worse than I thought....?

He sure did, among many other useful mods.

Another week, another two modders. One guy is someone well known to everyone here and the other guy who was one of the best stadium modders this website has ever seen.

Dennis James

No matter where you look around in the download section, whether it is in the Mvp 2005 area or the MLB 2K area you are going to see mods made by Dennis James. Uniforms, stadiums, total season mods, you name it and Dennis has been a part of it. If you were among the thousands of people who downloaded Mvp 12 and Mvp 13 you have already seen his work. Dennis, among with many others who worked on these two mods helped bring back Mvp Baseball for the first time since the 2008 mod was released. His work on combined projects and his individual work has made his work very popular on this website.

1967 Kansas City Athletics.

2013 Atlanta Braves Spring/BP uniforms.

Total Classics 1969 Uniform Pack

2013 Canada Day Toronto Blue Jays uniforms

Root Sports Seattle Pitch/Score Overlay

Total Classics mods created by Dennis James

Total Classics 1915
Negro League Baseball Mod

Total Classics Mods created by Dennis James and redeck

Total Classics 1927 Integrated

Total Classics 1927 MLB/Negro Leagues

All four mods are on the main page of the site for easy access downloading.

2k12

2k12 Coors Field (recolored/textured) (One of many)

2k13 Stadium Pack 2.0.

2k13 Pittsburgh Pirates throwbacks.

Fictional (Outdoor) Tampa Bay Rays Stadium.

PaulW

You're forgiven if you do not know who Paulw is. He's been a member here a very long time and doesn't post a lot but what he does is create some of the most beautiful classic stadiums you have ever seen. You can find his work in many of the classic mods and in Total Classics Phase 10. I highly recommend you check out the Ebbets Field that he made. It is stadium modding at its finest.

Ebbets Field Classic.

Crosley Field Classic.

Wrigley Field Classic.

Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium.

Comiskey Park Classic.

These are great choices and they are two of my favorite modders. Each one is definitely a stickler for details and their mods reflect this. Most of my TC mods include their work and you've only touched the tip of the iceberg on the mods they've each created.

Dennis created ALL the uniforms and ALL of the menu / loading screens for TC1941. He created a full set of uniforms for TC1946, TC1956, TC1964, TC1969 and TC1978. Dennis also created numerous stadium updates. Search the downloads and enter his name in the "author" field and you will get 10 pages of results!

Paul's stadiums are true works of art. His Yankee Stadium classic and 1950's Milwaukee County Stadium are two of my favorites. He also created a number of other TC year-specific stadiums that only appear in some of my TC mods. Paul also collaborated with SeanO, another favorite stadium modder of mine, to create some great stadiums.

I agree Jim...Paul's stadiums are masterpieces and I think that any of the Total Classics games wouldn't be the same with out his Comiskey Park, Milwaukee County Stadium, and one of my all-time favorites, Ebbet's Field. I happen to think that the mass environment of these stadiums are the key components in "immersing" the game player into whatever era we are trying to portray. The cyber-faces and uniforms are certainly important pieces of the pie; but these wonderful stadiums literally "make" the games true classics. Thank you Paul for giving these stadiums to the community.

I only showcased a very small part of his work here Jim! I saw for myself that he had ten pages of mods in the download section and hopefully after this it will get people curious as to see what other stuff this guy has in there. :)

I do recall that SeanO and Paul did work together on other stadiums and Sean will be featured too in the weeks to come.

We are on our third week now in this thread and just like last week it features a modder that people are familiar with and one that newcomers to the website will not know. Again,the purpose of this thread.

Krawhitham

Most people know who Krawhitham is. First from his involvement with Mvp Baseball and lately with his work in 2k12. Kraw's specialty was not making stadiums or cyberfaces or uniforms for the game. The programs he made were utilities that you used with the game and his Total installer Thingy was the most popular one to date. It is a program that has helped thousands of people install mods in their game with only a few clicks of the mouse. Kraw was a guy who provided a lot of technical support to people here and over at his website Eamods, later known as Mlbmods. He also was the project leader of the Mvp 06, 07 and 08 mods.

Hory

Hory has two uploads to his credit in the download section. The one I have listed below and the Mvp 2007 mod, which he was given credit for uploading it to the site. For people who have been here for a long time you will recall that Hory was the modder behind Total Portraits, which was a series of mods where he individually updated the portraits of each team in the majors. At the end of the season he would package all of the teams as one mod and release it as one big download. While his individual mods can not be downloaded anymore you can still see his work and his high-quality portraits in the Mvp '06, '07 and '08 mods.

Hory is also responsible for creating the Mvp Baseball 1994 mod, a mod that took him eighteen months to complete.

Hory was also one of the originals for audio and did the total audio mods for player audios. Pretty much all of his work has been the basis of the total conversion mods that everyone built on top of.

I was going to make the same point that Homer did. Hory created many of the team and stadium name announcements for me when I initially created TC1978, my first total conversion mod.

It's the fourth week of this thread and it's time for some more modders to be featured and recognized. The first one is someone that is more well known these days for his work with the 2k games and the second one is a stadium modder that was one of the best we have ever seen in here.

Kccitystar

When you compare the uniforms that you get when you first install a baseball video game to the uniforms that Kccitystar makes for the same game there is no comparison. Kc's uniforms have always made computer baseball games look so much better and as long as there are computer baseball games and he has the desire to do so, his uniforms always will.

KC has been making uniforms even longer than this website has been around. Before his work on Mvp baseball he made uniforms for Triple Play baseball. So if any of you who owned that game years ago and downloaded some uniform mods for that game, chances are you saw some of his work already.

Lately KC has been concentrating on 2k baseball but before that he spent many years making Mvp baseball look better. His Total MLB Uniform set for Mvp were a series of mods that were one of the most highly downloaded mods on this website. This uniform set was so good that it was also converted to Xbox format. Most of his work for Mvp is no longer available. KC is also known for his wonderful cyberface work and artwork and luckily there are many examples of those in the download area.

Pirate

Pirate is another modder that is unknown to people who have joined here in the past four years or so but for people who were around when this guy was making stadiums, everyone knew who he was and how good he was too. Pirate made stadiums and he did that so well that sometimes people forgot that he made other things like uniforms, portraits and stadium select screens. But as good as each one of those things were his signature work was his stadium creations. He covered them all during his time here and he also graphically improved the classic stadiums too.

As we go to week number five we have two modders that are well known by everyone who plays Mvp baseball.

Dylan Bradbury

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.

Schedule Generator.


Schedules (1933-2005)


Pitcher Rating Calculator.


Batter Rating Calculator.


Baseball Split Estimator.

Jogar84

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.

jogar was one of those guys i remembered seeing that really stepped up the quality of cyberfaces, and this was one that stood out to me. it was and still is one of the most realistic faces ever made for the game.

That one was so life like it almost looked like a picture of the guy. This is the purpose of my modder spotlights. Jogar has eleven pages of his work in the download section and what I am trying to do by linking a few of the modder's work each week is to encourage people to check out their other contributions.

Here in week six we feature a modder who has made 1960's Total Classics a huge hit and another modder who is well known for his superior cyberface creating ability and helpful tutorial work over the years.

Stecropper

Anyone who has played a Total Classics mod from the 1960's are already familiar with stecropper's work. The baseball seasons from that decade are his favorites and we are fortunate to have five of the ten years from that time period in the the total classics collection. He has taken his time making these season mods and the result is some of the best total conversion work available on this website.

This file is useful for several functions including easily identifying facial structures to use for Cyberface Modders. Two different links are provided here because each download is different from the other.)

Homer

We are lucky here on this website that we have some very good cyberface makers and Homer is among one of the very best there is. Much of his work can already be found in past conversion mods as well as Mvp 2012 and 2013. He has released individual cyberfaces as well as his cyberface packs that have been used with the BaseUp! Rosters. Along with his impressive work with cyberfaces Homer has taken the time to create instruction tutorials and videos for people who want to learn how to mod themselves but who are unsure of how to begin.

Two more great selections here. Don (stecropper) was the inspiration for me getting into single season modding. After seeing what was possible the *61 mod, I decided to try my hand and modding a single season. The result of that exercise was TC1978. Don took the time to answer all my questions, and without his help during those early days, I never would have gotten TC1978 out the door and continued on to create more mods.

Homer's faces are great and I'm a big fan of his classic player faces. You can see many of them in the Total Classics mods.

Here we go again another week and more accolades to the people who have contributed so much in here over the years, the Mvp modders. The two modders featured this week are well-known uniform creators when this website first started but for people who have joined in recent years their names will not be familiar to them.

Fizzjob

We are very lucky on this website to have so many wonderful uniform modders and some have already been featured in this thread in the previous weeks. But Fizzjob, along with the next name to be featured this week, were among the first to focus on throwback uniforms for Mvp 2005 and their work to this day is among the best out there.

As I said, Fizzjob made a lot of throwback uniforms but his specialty was creating uniforms for the Chicago White Sox. He actually made every White Sox uniform from 1901 to the 1990's and that was no small feat. There's no way you can have all these uniforms he made for the White Sox in one game since there are so many. Because of this the White Sox have the most uniform representation out of any team in the uniform download area thanks to this one man alone. So if you are a White Sox fan and you have never heard of Fizzjob you need to check out the download area.

While his work was White Sox dominated he made many other uniforms also. Some of his work can be seen in the Mvp 12 and Mvp 13 mods.

Cleveland Indians Throwbacks.



White Sox Uber Theme.



White Sox Loading screens.



Chicago American Giants.



Oakland A's Throwbacks.



Chicago White Sox 1901-1920.

Sandman

The main difference between Sandman and Fizzjob is that Sandman did not concentrate on one team almost exclusively. But like Fizzjob, Sandman was a modder who made the throwbacks as flawlessly as Fizzjob did. In fact the only problem was when these two were around and were making these uniforms was having enough uniform slots to place all their work. It was impossible. Sandman is also the co-creator of Total Classics *61 along with stecropper and if you happen to have an old copy of Mvp 2004 still around he has many throwbacks made for that game too.

1960 Washington Senators.



1963 Chicago White Sox.



1960 Pittsburgh Pirates.



1960 Cincinnati Reds.



1963 Los Angeles Dodgers.



1948 Cleveland Indians.

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.... :D

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. :)

Great choices to showcase this week Y4L. Obviously the work from these two men had GREATLY influenced my desire to create uniforms for this game. I was so surprised to see the attention to detail that these guys put into their work and seeing all of these throughout the Total CLassics series was a great treat and planted the seed for me. Next to Jim and Don (stecropper); the uniform mods from Sandman and Fizzjob, are the biggest influences in what continues to drive me to making mods for this great game. I'd like to think that guys like bctrackboi11 and myself took the torch for uniform modding and approached it with a ton of enthusiasm for classic and modern uniforms. :good:

Not a chance. I think the only way anyone could have used all these White Sox choices is to install these in different mods. It can be done if you want to be creative about it. For example with the 1941 mod. Fizzjob has the Chicago uniforms from 1921 to 1944. Well it wouldn't be accurate but you can install as many late 1930's up to 1944 as you can in that mod and in the 1927 mod install uniforms from the 20's. Won't be 100% accurate but it can be done and somehow you'll get all these uniforms in different mods.

Y4L this is really another great post you've created a truly enjoyable read. It's really great to get some background on these modders and this site in general.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy this thread. There's a lot more to come.

This week we spotlight a modder who was responsible for some of the nicest stadium mods for Mvp and for the first time in this thread a modder who has done all his work on the 2k Sports games in here.

Sean O

Sean O was (and I'm sure probably still is) a huge classics and baseball history fan and his love for the history of the game showed through on his work with the stadium mods that he made. To see examples of his work you need to go no further than playing just about any season of Total Classics play. A lot of his parks were released as individual downloads including many versions of Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium, the two ballparks that were his specialty.

Milwaukee County Stadium.


Wrigley Field 1961 (in Los Angeles).


Anaheim Stadium 1966-1979.


Sick's Stadium (Seattle).


Hadlock Field (Portland Sea Dogs).

Don Spa

Don Spa joined the website when MLB 2k9 was released in 2009 and immediately had a big impact on the new game that was released that year. While 2K9 proved to be the most problematic in that series, the uniforms made by Don Spa made that game look a lot better and for the next four years he made uniforms for each new release of the game. 2K gamers on this site have an incredible twelve pages of downloads to choose from. In later years Don Spa branched out into creating stadiums and they were as well received as his uniforms have been. This game may have gone through more than its share of problems but the contributions from Don Spa were not among it.

Moving on in this thread we feature this week a modder that released mods for both Mvp and the 2k series and a modder who contributions to the modding community here were all minor. Read on to see exactly what I mean by this.

Mcoll86

Mcoll86 is a modder who has been with us since the start of this website so it was a huge surprise for me to find out that most of the mods that he has made here were for the 2k sports baseball series. He has made mods for each release of 2K's baseball games and by doing that he has surpassed by far all the work he has done with Mvp Baseball.

Mcoll has made a full set of uniforms for both Mvp and 2K. His uniforms are based on the team's actual uniforms as well as ones he creates for them out of his own imagination. His work has been constantly downloaded by members here and his uniforms are among the finest for both games.

Mvp 2005

2X Uniforms with a different look (Set 1, updated.) (This is a four part series.)

Concept Jersey Series (Blue Jays.)

2005 AL Central Concept uniforms. (Set of six.)

MLB 2K12

NL West Uniforms. (Set of six made for all the divisions.)

1980 Atlanta Braves Uniforms.

2K12 Cap Template. Not for game use but for modding.

Modernized Retro Fantasy Mets Uniforms. (One of a complete set of MLB Fantasy uniforms.)

NL East Parks for 2K12.

Bodhiball

When I said in my introduction this week that one of the modding contributions here were all minor I was talking about Bodhiball. You see, Bodiball's mods all had to do with updates and improvements for the minor leagues in Mvp Baseball. The uniforms that he made, the stadiums and the cyberfaces that he released each were made for AAA ball and below. At the time when the game first came out many people were updating the game on the major league level. Because of that Bodhiball decided to concentrate on what he liked best which was the minor leagues with a concentration on the Red Sox minor league system.

His work can be found in the Mvp 12 and Mvp 13 mods.

Ottawa Lynx AAA Stadium.

Connecticut Defenders AA uniforms. (Giants AA team from 2003 to 2009)

International League Jerseys Part 1. (Set of three)

Pawtucket Red Sox Uniform Pack.

Red Sox A Ball Uniform Pack.

Bowie BaySox AA Stadium.

What this website has never lacked is talented uniform creators and this week two more of these modders take center stage. The first was by someone who created some of the first 2X uniforms seen in here and the other by a guy whose uniforms are still featured today.

Moser316

Back at the time when Mvp 2005 first was released we were spoiled in here because we had two guys who were releasing a full MLB uniform set in hi-res 2X style. The first was Kccitystar and the second was, because of the amount of time that has now passed, a lesser known modder to people here now named Moser316. Moser had a series of threads that can still be found today that covered the High-Res Road Trip that he had that detailed the release of each of his team uniforms.

Moser only released uniforms for the 2005 season but as everyone well knows a lot of teams have changed uniform styles since then and a lot of these uniforms that he made are considered throwbacks.

2005 Cardinals Uniforms.

2005 Texas Rangers Uniforms.

2005 Tampa Bay Devil Rays Uniforms.

2005 Cincinnati Reds Uniforms.

2005 Pittsburgh Pirates Uniforms.

2005 New York Mets Uniforms.

Royal Blues

Royal Blues was another guy in here that would post eagerly-awaited uniforms because every so often he would have extensive releases that had multiple uniforms included in one single package, as he liked to call his mods. Two examples of what I mean can be seen below. Royal Blues covered throwback uniforms and minor league teams and some of his work is also featured in the Mvp 12 and 13 mods.

Toronto Blue Jays History Pack.

(This history pack includes 26 uniforms.)

Milwaukee Brewers History Pack.

(According to the file description this history pack includes over twenty uniforms.)

Scranton/Wilkes Barre Yankees Uniforms.

1935 Detroit Tigers.

1971 Pittsburgh Pirates Home Uniform.

Omaha Royals Pack.

Tulsa Drillers Pack.

I recall when Mvp first came out there was a friendly debate going on in here with people that used KC's Total MLB uniforms and Moser's High Res Road Trip uniforms. Thanks to Mvp Studio I alternated many times.

This week we showcase a modder that not many people knew by name and another modder who created a mod that made the Total Classics series sound just as good as it looks.

Salva

Salva was a stadium and uniform modder who has been member for many years but because he did not speak English many people knew little about him. That's because when he was here he would spend his time in a now-defunct area of the forum that was set aside for the Spanish-speaking members and those of us who did not understand the language did not go in there and the same held true for the Latino members in there who rarely left that part of the forum.

Salva's main concentration was stadiums, uniforms and faces from Caribbean League Baseball. These uniforms can also be found in all the various editions of Mvp Caribe but at the same time he released uniform and face packs here. Ironically the most popular mod he made had nothing to do with Latino baseball. His rendition of the Tokyo Dome in Japan has been downloaded over 1,700 times and can be seen in the 2013 mod that was released this past summer.

He may not have been a familiar name to the average user but the modding community in here they knew better.

OTBJoel

Patience and dedication are the first two words that should be used to describe this modder because his Legends from the Booth mod (listed below) took him three years to make and if you have not had the pleasure to hear what this mod is about it replaces the audio of the default announcers in the game with calls from Vin Scully, Ernie Harwell and Mel Allen.

While game audio is what OTBJoel is most famous for, most people would be surprised that he has released a series of classic stadiums over the years too, some of which are listed below.

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

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.

All Screens Maker (4 different screens.)

Initial Splash Screen, CTS Screen, Loading Screen, License Screen.

Base Mod in Hi-Res (Dirty or Clean.)

MLB Vector Circle + Extras.

Mvp Baseball Game Resolution Changer.

Mvp Softball.

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.

Kyleb

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.
