    Pretty much any sport you can think of, graphic design, road tripping, discovering new diners and dives. Might be Guy Fieri. Might be less of a douche than that.

    This is a set of three cyberface mods for the late 90s. Unfortunately, because this is a dedicated mod, the face numbers for these players may overwrite someone unintentionally. Therefore, please back up your files and consider manually importing. Please read the attached readme file before installing.

    So MySpace and LinkedIn are still cool?
  3. New and improved Navigators uniforms at the new and improved Navigators field. Now with accurate purple home pinstripes and green number accents.
  4. I was thinking about doing Yale Field. I just need to find a good base stadium. Bodhiball/createbaseball has some amazing minor league parks that could be used as a base. Just gotta find one that will let me do everything I can to make an accurate Yale Field.
  5. Banged out a new stadium mod tonight, but rather than keep you waiting for it, I've uploaded it so that you all can play in a new minor league park if you desire. It's Dodd Stadium, former home of the Norwich Navigators. The Navigators were the Yankees AA affiliate from 1995-2003.

    This is a stadium mod for Dodd Stadium, former home of the Norwich Navigators. It was in use as the home of the Navigators and Connecticut Defenders from 1995 - 2009. It now serves as the home field for the Connecticut Tigers of the NY-Penn League. This mod will overwrite AA Stadium 2. Ads are from the 2004 season, but I changed the affiliation to the New York Yankees for my MVP 98 mod. To install, use TiT or import the stadium into your data/stadium folder. Always remember to back up your files. This stadium was based off the amazing Jerry Uht Park mod made by bodhiball.
  7. Uniform refurbishments have been completed for all MLB, AAA, and All-Star teams. Gonna start with AA soon.
  8. Finished everything on the MLB side except the NL East. I'm limiting each team to 8 uniforms due to crashing I'm still experiencing on the uni select screen. So the only team that won't have a throwback is the Mets, because they have 4 different jerseys they wear at home, 2 for the road, and then the two spring training jerseys.
  9. Is it just the menu music or is it the in-game as well? As a first step, I would check your Audio settings. You can do that by going to My MVP. Make sure that sounds are all up to 5 rather than 0.
  10. Awesome, thanks!
  11. A new preview, this time of two flavors of Old Milwaukee. The 1958 Braves and the 1978 Brewers. The Brewers actually played a game wearing the '58 Braves unis... against the Atlanta Braves, who wore 1958 road uniforms to mark the occasion. Here's a look at two John Jahas showing off the details. And yes, that's a zipper front on the Braves jersey!
  12. Doing some 70s stylin' and profilin' for some MVP 98 throwback options.
  13. MLB Announces Next Three All-Star Venues Midsummer Classic to visit Detroit, Denver, and Atlanta December 5, 1997 NEW YORK - Major League Baseball, in an effort to boost sagging revenues since the 1994 players' strike, took the unusual step of announcing the next three All-Star Game venues, which will carry the Midsummer Classic into the new millennium. Next season's All-Star Game will come from Tiger Stadium, one of the oldest parks in the major leagues. Then, newer parks will be rotated, first with Coors Field in Denver next year, and Turner Field in Atlanta in 2000. Tiger Stadium, which opened as Navin Field in 1912 and later known as Briggs Stadium, will host the All-Star game for the fourth time overall, and the first time since 1971. With a new downtown ballpark being built, this will likely be one of the last "marquee events" to be hosted at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull. The game will take place on July 7 of next year. Next in the order will be Coors Field, the home of the Colorado Rockies. Built in 1995, it was modeled similarly to Oriole Park at Camden Yards in the "retro-classic" style. While the All-Star Game is the premier event of the mid-week schedule, the thin air in Denver may shatter records in the annual Home Run Derby. It will be the first All-Star Game hosted in the Mountain Time Zone. The last park to be announced was Turner Field in Atlanta. The home of the Braves, Turner Field was built for the 1996 Olympics and served as the main stadium for the Games. After the closing ceremony, it was converted into a baseball-only facility and opened this past year. The stadium was built across the street from Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, which served as the Braves home field since their move from Milwaukee in 1966. Atlanta last hosted an All-Star Game in 1972.
  14. Still in the process of modeling team uniforms to a more realistic texture. I've finished the Blue Jays' primary jerseys, and now I've just gotta work on their alts/spring training and the throwback powder blue that I'll have them wear as a bonus. Also, for Yankee fans, you'll be happy to know that I've included a couple of Yankee alternates that were very rarely worn. They're the 1996 New York Black Yankees Negro League throwback uniforms and a home uniform from 1913, before they introduced pinstripes. Since there were no numbers on the jersey back then, I've added McAuliffe numbers that the Yankees wore in the 30s and 40s, as evidenced by this picture of Babe Ruth on the day the Yankees retired his number.
  15. In Latin, excelsior means "ever upward". In this unique dynasty, an alternate universe will be explored. One where George Steinbrenner has sold his ownership stake in the Yankees, where Joe Torre retires after two seasons (as he had originally planned to do), and where the team needs to find stability. We'll pick things up in the 1998 offseason, using accurate 1998 rosters through my custom MVP '98 Total Conversion Mod. Since this mod is not true to life, you can expect some major differences from the real life Yankees. I've been looking for a convenient way to sign whomever I want without worrying about facial hair requirements, so with the Steinbrenners out, facial hair is back in. You'll see players wearing single digit numbers, as I'm returning numbers 1 and 9 back into the rotation, along with 23 and 37. For those that disagree, I'll say that I've never believed in retiring numbers for managers, and since Stengel never played a game for the Yankees and Martin only hit above .270 once in his career, those are going back in. As for Maris, hitting 61 home runs is certainly something, but after that season, he never hit over 35 homers again. As for Mattingly, who retired in 1997, I'm thinking this retired number austerity began in 1992 and while Donnie Baseball would surely be honored as a long time captain and the heart of the team, you only have so many numbers to distribute. Another factor that led me to do this is that I've believed video games to be a great escape from real life. We all know that the 1998 Yankees were one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, team to ever take a Major League Baseball field. But that's already been done. We've got plenty of records of it. I'd rather forge a new path, make mistakes along the way, and explore an alternate future. So for these 1998 Yankees, there will be no Steinbrenner, no Torre, and no certainty. The Yankees will have different farm teams as well. The Syracuse Chiefs will return as their AAA club, after previously serving in that capacity from 1967-77. The new AA Eastern League team will reside in Glens Falls, NY as the Adirondack Lumberjacks. The Single-A Tampa Yankees will rebrand early as the Tampa Tarpons. You'll learn all about these teams from news reports. Joining the New York Times and the Daily News will be the Syracuse Post-Standard, the Glens Falls Post-Star and the Tampa Tribune. In addition to news reports, I'll also provide screenshot highlights and audio commentary for each game. The audio will be uploaded to SoundCloud and linked through posts, while the screenshots will be edited and inserted into posts. I hope you enjoy this dynasty as much as I'm enjoying the creative process around it. Once the MVP '98 mod is more complete, I'll resume posting with more 1998 headlines, some of which will be copy/pastes from the previous dynasty I was going to start, but opted to nix after coming up with this idea. Stay tuned for more!
