Modders Wanted- MVP NCAA Baseball

Recommended Posts

As many of the folks who have been around here for a while know, a full NCAA mod has been kicked around a few times with no real progress. Well I am proud to share what myself and Rroy0824 have been working on for the past couple of years.

What this mod has:

Teams: We have 124 of the top college baseball teams in the country replacing every single playable team in MVP 05.

Uniforms: Uniforms for every team in the mod with accurate number fonts, including alternates. (Currently about 90% done)

Equipment: Authentic aluminum bats will replace all of the wooden bats in the game.

Stadiums: While we can't get every single stadium into the game, we can get the "best of the best", as well as the many neutral sites (Stadium list to follow below)

College World Series: Both Rosenblatt Stadium and the new TD Ameritrade Park will be in the mod, and included will be a dynasty save file with the final 8 teams in the CWS.

Artwork: Thanks to Yankee4Life we have lots of hi-res photos to use for various loading and background screens.

What this mod doesn't have:

Rosters: To make the roster making process a lot faster, we imported various teams and players from the Layman Database in MVPedit and renamed the players to randomized names with randomized characteristics. Rroy0824 did lots of research to import teams with similar attributes to their real-life counterparts. The roster is 100% complete.

Portraits: To make this easier, we aren't assigning or making portraits for anyone. Everyone will have a portrait ID value of 0.

Audio: I know very little about audio. The biggest need is the replace the sound of a wooden bat with an aluminum sound. Everything else is low priority.

Stadiums: It is impossible to create a stadium for every single team, so I created a master list of stadiums and which slots they will use (again, see below). This is the biggest area left of the mod and the area we need the most help in.

Dynasty: Dynasty play is not available, but as mentioned before, you will be able to play the final rounds of the College World Series.

Where we need help:

So far, this has been a mostly two-man operation, but any help in creating artwork, logos, and most importantly stadiums would be appreciated. Screenshots of what we do have will be in subsequent posts. If you want to help mod and test things out, let us know! Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more info!

For a small tease, here are the stadium select screens I've created for some of the stadiums we have completed...

I sent you a PM, but the biggest help I need is the stadiums. Here is the list. Completed Stadiums in BOLD, In Progress in ITALICS.

The list looks overwhelming, but many of the stadiums are based on older minor league parks in the downloads section. I also have permission from SALVA to use MVP Caribe stadiums as a base if needed. If you do decide to knock one on the list out, send me a message please.

Next up: Robin Baggett Stadium in San Luis Obispo, California. Home of the Cal Poly Mustangs and 2014 NCAA Regional Host. Based off a stadium from MVP Caribe with permission. I will also be making a night version with more neutral branding for the Regionals version.

Myself and Roy are finished with about 90% of the uniforms. As a teaser, here are some screens of one of my favorites, Tulane (their logo is based on the St. Louis Cardinals)

Just my 2c, but since the number of stadiums seems daunting and stadium modders aren't around like they used to be, wouldn't releasing a "beta" of sorts (with the stadiums that are done) be advisable?  My concern would be freeze-ups with all of the modding going on.  Get the community to give feedback on any freeze-ups they are experiencing with this.

Also, I have some global ranges for rosters that I've incorporated with mine in the past if you're interested in using them.

The lack of the old stadium modders doesn't concern me.  While it is sill a lot of work, the list is not as daunting as it seams.  What we are basically asking people to help out with is picking stadiums that are similar to the college stadium and replace textures to make the stadium look close.  There is really no Oedit or Zmod or whatever involved.  While the stadiums are not perfect, they usually look pretty great.  Think of it more as modding stadiums in the 2K games.

As for a beta, not to speak for bctrackboi11, but I don't think we need one right now.  I really don't think a site wide beta would be the way to go, but maybe we could send one to a few trusted people a few weeks before release.  I would rather release a complete mod that we are happy with instead of a half done one. That is part of the reason this is taking so long, but I think it will be well worth it.

I actually would like to look at your global ranges, if you don't mind.  I am sure there is some useful stuff in there that we could use.  Thank you for offering that.

So about the crashing. Most of the crashing issues are associated with the models.big file size. As we are using just generic faces, the majority of cyberfaces can be removed. After removing the cyberfaces and repacking the models.big file in my own experiments I have found that crashing occurs a lot less often. 

As for stadiums, quite a few already exist and just need minor changes. But as Roy stated, the plan is to use existing stadiums (mostly minor league parks) to make these, so it is really just an issue of some graphical edits. 

I agree with Roy though, a public Beta seems counterproductive at this time. We have spent 2 years off and on making this come together and I only see fit to release it in polished, final form.
