Modders Of The Week

Recommended Posts

Thank you Homer. I felt the same way. I really miss these guys.

Thanks to Homer, who shared my work with the community here at my request, every single uniform modder working today is either using my uniform templates as a base, and/or my many uniform accessories. Even years after I've left, my fingerprints are all over this game and every single uniform release featured on this site and will continue to be for the life of this community.

Scrubbed from history.... but not from your hearts.

Love you all.

Goodbye.

What the heck was this guy's problem? Hope he didn't hurt his arm patting himself on the back.

I am not going to get into it. The best thing is to leave it alone and respect him enough to have his own opinion about this. That's all I'll say.

well the reality is that's what has happened. he never released his uniform templates but released a ton of uniforms and accessories. from those mods others have taken them and created some of their own. if you've been around long enough, you can tell what is his work in the mods. if you look at pretty much any uniform mod anymore, his work is the base for them.

Well that kind of thing should be expected whenever you release something to the public. Years ago I did a bunch of uniforms for several versions of High Heat. Eventually over time I started seeing stuff I created show up in other people's work. It wasn't a big deal to me.

That guy's posts always seem to indicate that he felt his stuff was far superior to anyone else's and the community should reward him for it with praise and money. To me it's one thing to be proud of your work, it's quite another to be a pretentious d-bag about it. I'm sure plenty of others feel the same way about him but I guess it doesn't matter anymore since it appears he's left the site for good.

Ok, that's it. You've had your say.

I did not spend all these months working on this thread to have it end up like this. This is not what this thread is about so please stop ruining it.

Spungo has not left this website for good. He comes back when he wants to and I don't see any reason at all to re-hash old complaints or opinions about him. It's over and done with.

Y4L I know you havent updated this thread  for awhile but I think you need to give Rising Son some love. That guy is an animal!

The reason why I have not updated this thread in over a year is because I was finished with it and was not planning on adding any other names to the list that I already had here. I covered the download area very well and was able to give some well-deserved attention to some people who have left their work behind for everyone here on this website.

 

But after reading what you wrote last night I realized you were right and an update to this thread should be done to include Rising Sun. Thanks for the suggestion.

 

Rising Sun uploaded his first mod to the website in 2013 with this Beard mod that updated the portraIts of some Red Sox players to show them with beards. After this was uploaded the mods seemed to keep coming from this very talented and diverse Japanese modder. He may never see this tribute in here to him because he does not post in the forums due to the language barrier but he deserves it just the same.

 

Although he has made a lot of portraits and cyberfaces this is not all that Rising Sun is known for. He has five pages filled with uploads here and a quick look at what he has in there shows he is much more than these two things. Right now his work is primarily on the upcoming Mvp 15 mod and with contributions from people as valuable and talented as Rising Sun that mod will end up being a very popular download once it is available here at Mvpmods.

If anyone was reading this thread last week you would have noticed that the modders of the week topic was going to be revived again to add some more modders that I have felt needed to be on this list in the beginning or who have become modders after this this thread was last added and whose contributions merit recognition. If you are not sure what this thread is about I encourage you to read it. It's only three pages long and if you do you will see names of people that you know and that you've never heard of. Their work you may be familiar with but not the person responsible for it. I had two goals when I started this thread. To show appreciation to the people here for all their work along with thanking them one more time. Also, it was my way of inspiring people to check out the download section for themselves to see what there is that would interest them. There are over 8,500 mods on this website and only the newest ones are on the front page. Whether you are a fan of Mvp '04 or '05, the 2k series or High Heat, I can promise you there is something in the download section that is just for you that you are currently not aware of.

 

Anyway, this is why I began this thread. And to celebrate this I am featuring two modders that are as well-known over at Mvp Caribe as they are here at this website.

 

Jed

 

Cyberfaces are a very difficult thing to do because if you release one that looks nothing like the player at all you are going to hear about it. Not the case with Jed. Like Jogar84, Homer and Veesmack before him (just to name three) Jed has consistently produced cyberfaces that have routinely drawn praises from everyone -both Mvp and 2k users- who have downloaded his work or previewed them in his thread before they were ready for download. He has ten pages of submissions here at Mvpmods and just looking at any one of them you can tell that he is one of the best cybermakers around.

 

Paul Goldschmidt Cyberface (2k12)

 

Madison Bumgarner Cyberface (2k12)

 

Bryce Harper Cyberface (2k12)

10 Cyberfaces released after the 2015 mod (Mvp 2005)

 

35 Cyberfaces released after the 2015 mod (Mvp 2005)


Jeferomer

 

Jeferomer is the second modder this week who originally came from the Mvp Caribe website. Like Jed he has created some quality cyberfaces but in turn he also has made overlays, uniforms and portraits. His work here has constantly been impressive but you shouldn't take my word for that. He has five pages full of downloads and if you check them out you'll see that I wasn't overemphasizing. His work with his team facepacks on the Mvp 2015 10th anniversary mod helped make that mod one of the most popular total conversion mods here.

 

Mvp 18 Facepack (a total of five facepacks are available for download)

 

Babe Ruth Cyberface.

 

2017 Arizona Diamondbacks uniforms (Mvp)

 

Umpire Uniforms (Mvp)

 

Chicago White Sox Facepack for the Mvp 15 mod (many other teams available.)

 

Generic Overlay 2k12.

This week's trip to the download section honoring the people who have contributed so much to our website features another person in the long line of modders who have done incredible work creating uniforms for Mvp baseball 2005 and a modder who seemed to have a much fun creating his mod write-ups as he did creating the mod itself.


BallFour

 

For someone who has only been a member a little over three years now, BallFour has quickly made a name for himself with his throwback uniforms and the major and minor league uniforms he has uploaded during this time. He has constantly watched over his uniform releases and consistently updated them when any kind of change to them needed to be put in. His attention to every detail in the uniform is similar to uniform modders who came before him such as KcCitystar, Moser316 and DennisJames71, just to name three. This very versatile modder has multiple pages of downloads that have mostly uniforms to choose from although he has made cyberfaces, stadiums and logo sets.


Total Uniforms '18 version 9.0.0

 

2018 Iowa Cubs

 

2018 Manager's Cyberface pack version 3.0.0

 

2017 Complete Logo Set

       This mod will update the logo files and the affiliations files in MVP Baseball 2005.

 

Portland MLB Stadium - Nike Stadium (fictional ballpark)

 

1993-2003 San Diego Padres Uniforms

 

2017 All Star Game Uniforms

           The special All-Star uniforms dating back to 1997 are also available for download.
    
1920's through 1940's All Star Game uniforms

          This is a generic uni mod for All-Star Games/Home Run Derbies for the '20s through the '40s. Other eras are available.
 
 
Misopogon

 

Misopogen was a 2k uniform and portrait maker and roster creator who made mods for MLB2k12 and 2k10. His roster series for 2k10 was highly popular and was downloaded thousands of times. But as well done as his mods were for both games his file descriptions for them were just as good and highly entertaining. They had a combination of what the mod was about combined with a dash of history and a whole lot of humor. What other mod would have geflite fish in it? And if you have no idea what that is read it for yourself. I promise you that you'll laugh when you find out.

This week we look at a modder who has made some high quality sound mods for the 2k12 game and a guy who was well known for his datafile work in the early days of our website.

 

Aceshigh

 

Aceshigh's sound mods for MLB2k12 were very popular when you consider that most of them recieved over 1,000 downloads apiece. What he consistently did was make 2k12 sound a whole lot better than 2k had done and the results, again based on the number of times people downloaded his work proved without a doubt that his mods for 2k12 were not ones you wanted to do without if you wanted to enjoy that game at its fullest.

DaSteelerz's MLB2k Soundtrack 1.0

 

Realistic Home Run Sirens Updated 1.2

 

Enhanced Crowd Sounds 1.1

 

MLB 2k14 Sound Mod - YES Network 1.2


RRodkey

 

Datafiles are a very complex part of the game. Each one is different from the next in that they change the look and presentation of the game and like other mods made for Mvp baseball it takes a lot of work and patience to get it right. RRodkey was a guy who made a series of datafiles for Mvp Baseball 2004 that were very much in demand for people who played Mvp '04. His datafiles made Mvp '04 look and play so much better that you almost had to wonder what EA was thinking when they originally released the game. Luckily for those of you who only have Mvp '05 and not '04 you can still try out one of his datafiles because his last one was for 2005 and you will see for yourself how talented this guy really was.

 

RodData2005 (for Mvp 2005)

 

RRodkey v5 w/Real Baseball Tune (for Mvp 2004)

 

  I have included the readme file for this mod because it is not displayed on the mod description page. These old mods on the website do not have these anymore and most of them do not have screenshots either.

 

    Real Baseball Tune, version 5.0
by jackcasper49

This tune was formerly used in conjunction with my roster set which has now gone to it's final version.  Feel free to use this tune with any avaliable roster set as it should work just fine.

This tune was created almost entirely by the work of RRodkey.  This is based off of his version 5 datafile.txt.  I have implemented the work of Trues for camera angles and removing the batter swing replays.  I have utilized the work of Kccitystar in terms of RPM adjustments to pitches.  I have used my own work in many other suttle areas to tweak the game ever so slightly.  Much of my own work has been inspired by SerialMike and more recently JohnE66.
It's worth reiterating that this original tune is almost entirely the work of RRodkey!!!!


DataFile Tutorial (for Mvp 2004)

 

Modified Data File for Mvp 2004

 

RodData4 & Kamastura Cams + No Swing Replay (for Mvp 2004)

    This file is designed with CPU vs. CPU play in mind. It is possible
to play a "Manage Mode" this way - similar to what High Heat offers.
While allowing the CPU to control all pitching, batting, and fielding
you can take over at any time and make managerial moves. You can have
mound visits, make pitching changes, put in pinch hitters, make de-
fensive substitutions, etc.

Ok, I am not going to say this is it for this thread because there are always new modders that I can add in the future. So this is what I am going to ask you to do. If you want me to cover a modder in here that has not been written about already then tell me who you believe should be included. People who make icons like this goof right here or upload nothing but an mp3 file like this dimwit here will not be considered at all. So, if you have any ideas for someone that you believe need to be here on this list please let me know.

To answer the first part of your question, yes a guy who only makes rosters is considered a modder. Making rosters is a hard job to do and takes a lot of time.

 

And the guy you are talking about is KGBaseball. He was a roster maker that originally had his mods hosted here but he then had all his work pulled from this site and he brought them over to Eamods, where they remained until they closed their doors. Don't get me wrong now, he made some very good rosters but none of his work is here anymore.

This week in this thread we draw attention to a modder that created mods for a very small minority of users in here and a modder who created a variety of mods for MLB2k12. And in a return to our behind the scenes modders we pay tribute to a guy who helped make editing your Mvp '05 simple and fast.


kado456

 

I am confident in saying that most people who have been members here have not tried kado456's mods at any time for one simple reason.His mods were made for the original X-Box and to use them you needed to have a modified version of that console. He has made mods for Mvp Baseball 2005 and NCAA Baseball 2006 and if you are able to use his mods you'll discover he had a nice variety of choices for the X-Box gamer on Mvpmods. Stadiums, datafiles and team logos are some of the mods he has made. The X-Box games do not get a lot of attention here but the work kado456 did for it deserve as much recognition as its PC counterpart.

Kado456's MVP 06 NCAA Baseball Datafile(s) Set v1.0

 

Kado456's Enhancement Pack for MVP 06 NCAA Baseball XBOX v1


DaSteelerz


If you own MLB2k12 there is a very good chance you have some of DaSteelerz' mods installed in your game and if you have not you are missing out. He has created stadiums -many of which have had over 1,000 downloads- along with rosters, portrait packs and a series of graphic mods that have really brought out the beauty of the last PC game that 2k Sports made. Each mod looks professionally done and it is no wonder that his work is highly praised by 2k12 users consistently.

Behind the Scenes
    rglass95
    
If you are a Mvp '05 game player you will have heard of Mvp Edit. It is,as the file description in the mod so aptly states, "THE definitive Roster Editor for MVP Baseball 2005." It certainly is. Consider this for a moment. This little utility has almost 30,000 downloads since rglass agreed to let Trues host it on this site back in 2008. Before then you could only download it from his website. To this day this mod has been practically a required tool for anyone who wished to tweak their rosters to their own choosing.

 

Another thing that rglass did was when Mvp 2005 came out he made a profile that unlocked all the uniforms and stadiums that the game had. This was before the famous Katie Roy trick was discovered. But before that easter egg was brought to light this was how many users were able to access everything in the game right away,

 

Rglass95 was a modder who did not make a lot of mods. He does have two sky modification mods he made for Mvp baseball 2004 but with Mvp Edit and the profile that I mentioned that helped others fully enjoy Mvp '05, his contributions to this game can never be discounted.

This week we take a look at a modder who created quite a number of minor league uniforms for Mvp 2005 and a full set of major league uniforms for Mvp Baseball 2004 and a modder who restored (colorized) the classic stadiums found in Mvp '05. And our behind the scenes modder is a guy whose work is very well known to anyone who has spent time playing Total Classics Phase 10.


RAM

 

RAM, or rambully (his original screen name) was a uniform modder who made a very good looking MLB uniform set for Mvp Baseball 2004 at the time that more well known uniform modders like KcCitystar and Umachines were creating total MLB sets themselves. RAM's MLB set has almost been lost to time on this web site since he made them for a game that gets very little attention anymore but his uniforms for that game, like the other modders mentioned here, improved the look of Mvp '04 immensely. When Mvp rolled around he went in another direction as he concentrated on making uniforms for the minor league teams in the game.


Ram's Tacoma Rainiers -M's AAA - 2xlite

 

Ram's Bakersfield Blaze - Rangers A- 2xlite

 

Ram's Richmond Braves -Braves AAA- 2xlite

 

Ram's Umpires 2xlite uni for Mvp 2005

 

Seattle alternate road unis by rambully (for Mvp 2004)

 

Rusmur

 

At first I was going to place Rusmur in the behind the scenes category but after thinking it over I decided that wouldn't have been the right place for him because even though people may not be familiar with his name these days, his work in the total classics and total conversion mods are very recognizable to anyone who has used these mods. Rusmur was the modder who restored the classic ballparks in the game and colorized them and when he did that those old stadiums almost looked brand new. It takes a lot to create a total conversion mod and Rusmur's input was a big part of it.

Behind the Scenes

Deadballfan


Before there was a Total Classics, people like deadballfan used to create something called "team packages." These mods replaced minor league team slots in Mvp 2004 with classic teams from the past and they included the full team roster,logo and portraits. Many people are not aware of the fact that the first total classics was for Mvp 2004 and it included team packages from deadballfan and many others such as Trues,Jim825, AlexTony, Yankees763 and Fuzzone.

 

These team packages were the predecessors of the total classics mod. You would have to download these separately to put in your game before Fuzzone had the idea of combining all of these team packages when he created the first edition of Total Classics. Without these complete team packages from people like deadballfan, this mod would look drastically different.


1894 Baltimore Orioles Team Pack for TC 10

  This pack is designed to replace either the 2006 Detroit Tigers or 1962 NY Mets (your choice) in Total Classics 10.
 
1910 Philadelphia A's Package by deadballfan  (for Mvp 2004)

 

1968 St. Louis Cardinals (for Mvp 2004)

 

1909 Detroit Tigers Package with Logos (for Mvp 2004)

 

1905 New York Giants Package w/Logos by deadballfan and Fuzzone (for Mvp 2004)

 

  Please note: I just provided the links so you can view the early work that made Total Classics what it is today. You do not need to download any of these team packages that you see here because they are all included in Total Classics Phase 10. Thank you.

I'm late to the party lol .. many thanks for the post Y4L.  To the community this game really gave me hours of joy modding & playing and it always makes me smile to see this game and mvpmods alive and well  .. A few guys from the Xbox scene I'd liked to mention that I had the pleasure of modding with Gordo, bryan_hayeszo & Hollywood165561.  And a guy I never got a chance to work with, and really wish I could have, but he was legendary for us modded console guys "themewin". 

 

With the new season upon us I think I might hook up the old mod box and take a trip down memory lane ^_^ Thanks again guys !!!!!

This week in this thread we go all the way back to Mvp Baseball 2004 to thank two modders whose work that they did in that game deserves recognition. One is a uniform modder who mostly made throwback uniforms and a X-box modder who updated quite a number of stadiums for console version of Mvp '04.


Carter

Carter, (or Cartersyard) was mostly a throwback uniform modder for Mvp Baseball 2004 and he only made his uniforms for Mvp '04 because when '05 came out there were so many people putting out full MLB sets and with Sandman and Fizzjob making many throwback ones, he felt there was not a need for him to continue. Based on the work that he did in '04 as evident in the provided screen shot of the Seattle Pilots home uniform he made we could have used another talented uniform creator for the next edition of Mvp Baseball.

If anyone is interested in using any of these made-for-2004 uniforms in Mvp 2005 you are in luck. I checked with Jim825, a guy who knows more about uniforms than I ever will, and he confirmed that uniforms that were made for Mvp 2004 can be used in Mvp 2005. At the same time uniforms made for Mvp '05 can not be used in Mvp '04.
    
    

The_Super

 

The_Super was another modder that basically has gone unnoticed because of the platform in where he did his work in and when he did it. While he did contribute five stadiums to the 2005 version of the Xbox, the majority of his mods were for the game's 2004 version on the Microsoft console. Again I must confess that I have never used any of his mods and that was because my Xbox was not modded. However the people around back then who were able to take advantage of the complete set of stadium mods he made for the game were very happy with them. And that is what this thread is all about. Providing recognition and thanks to modders who made a difference in this community.

The modders represented this week are two more names that really won't jump out at you because of the work they did and when they did it. Even though they were not high-profile modders like Dennis James or KC or Pirate, etc, etc, it still does not diminish their contributions to the modding community here at Mvpmods. One was a guy who made camera and datafile mods that significantly changed the perspective of the ballpark that gave it a new outlook as compared to what we were normally used to seeing. The second modder is another member of the Xbox community who contributed so much to the users who played this game on the console.

 

Also, as  I asked a few weeks back I wanted people to bring to my attention names of modders that have not been featured in here. There is a list a few posts up from this that will tell you every name I have done already. I have now completed my updated list and I hope you enjoyed reading about these guys as much as I have writing about them in here.


Murph4thehall

 

I would imagine that datafiles and camera angle views have to be as difficult to create and to be satisfied with the end result as any other part of the game that has been modded over the years. Maybe more so because if there is a mistake in any one part of it people will notice right away and that's where the criticisms begin. Ask any roster maker over the years how many complaints he gets when a player is not up to speed according to someone else.

 

Murph4thehall created some very good field cameras that have really gone unnoticed over the years and that is partly because he has not been here in almost ten years and his work has been buried in the pages of mods that we have in the Mvp '05 download area. His Turner Field cam is especially good and if you want to see how good it is you should play a game in that park before you install his camera mod and then after you install it. You'll see a very pronounced difference.


Fenway Park Cams v1.1

 

Turner Field Cams v1.0

 

New Aerial and Zoom Cams

 

Adjusted Speed ratings

 

Fieldturf 2.0 (for Mvp 2004)

Themewin


Themewin was an Xbox modder who ported some of the most popular PC mods over to the console so they could be played there. By doing that he became one of the most admired and popular supporters of the Xbox community during his time here. Because of themewin Xbox users were able to use mods like Hory's Total Portraits and KcCitystar's uniform set in their game.

 

Newer members to Mvpmods may wonder why there was so much attention geared towards the Xbox version of the game when all the mods that they see are for the PC version and nothing else. That is not how it was when Mvp first came out. There were people very happy with their Xbox game and they had no interest in acquiring the PC equivilant. That's partly because of the work you see below from themewin.


Total Portraits 2007 - Xbox

 

Polo Grounds - New York -Version 2.0 - Xbox

 

Total MLB Uniform Pack v1.25 - Xbox

 

Xbox Cyberface Updates 1.2
