BallFour's MVP Baseball 1998

Recommended Posts

I am very anxious to see the Aloha Stadium you are making because I was lucky enough to see games there while I was out there in the service. Since I know you are making it I am sure it’s going to be good.

So I did a little bit of stadium modding tonight. I created Aloha Stadium from a Three Rivers template and I created BC Place in Vancouver from the Metrodome. They're both okay, nothing to write home about but clearly new stadia. But anyway, here's my absolute favorite creation. In 1998, Safeco Field was under construction and well on its way to completion. So, why don't we let you play there too?

I've utilized the old BP collision data mod by mike360 back in 2009. All you need to do is mute the crowd noise yourself and you'll be playing in Safeco Field a year early! I'll be creating Cashman Field in Las Vegas next for the 98 mod.

 

 

Wow, this is absolutely genius! As a lifelong fan of the Mariners, I can't wait to roam CF with Griffey in an unfinished Safeco lol! I assume the Kingdome will still be an available stadium to play in as well?

Yup! The Kingdome will be the primary home of the Mariners. The under construction Safeco will be in a Classic Stadium slot.

Awesome! I love playing in a packed house Kingdome!

Just finished the Sydney Olympic baseball stadium, which was completed in February 1998. Next I just have to finish Cashman Field in Las Vegas!

Stadiums are all finished. 

This is going to turn out to be a very unique mod!

I'll be honest, I'm not pleased with Aloha. It's just basically Three Rivers without the huge ads on the top of the bleachers. There's no way that I could create the exact placement of the scoreboard and the retractable seating. I tried to use Tropicana, but no luck.

 

I just went and reworked things. Rather than using Three Rivers or Tropicana, I managed to solve a big problem I was having. With domed stadiums, if you take away their roof and sides, it just looks black because there's no sky in there. So it's almost as if it was missing an alpha image. I just imported a daytime sky from a different stadium and got fantastic results.

 

I used Olympic Stadium as a base and managed to change things around enough to make it look sort of like Aloha. The empty space where the side scoreboards used to be is designed that way because Aloha Stadium had gaps in the seats due to their retractable nature. I've attached some pics!

Was playing a game at the under construction Safeco and I was having a real issue with depth perception and focus while pitching using the reverse cam while pitching. Too much gray. So because of that, I decided to cave and add seats to the Safeco mod. Still no crowd and there's still a lot of concrete, but I think it'll be a little more user friendly when it comes to pitching. Here's an updated screenshot of the batter's view.

And now, here's the reverse view.

All that green area where you see the seats was just a gray that matched the staircases, so yeah. I think it's a little better.

Holy crap. I just found the picture of Ken Griffey Jr. taking batting practice at Safeco under construction. I see that there's no grass there yet, so I'm going to remove the grass from the under construction mod and see how that looks.

I'm really torn here. I think I like the grass better. I tried to simulate the dirt, but it just doesn't look right.
