  1. It has been a long time. Thanks for the invite back, KC. Modding was a huge part of my life, and I'll second that interview of the spouses, LOL. My wife hated it when I modded. Anyway, it's crazy to think of how MVP modding evolved, first with Everdever's discovery of OEdit and then the introduction of Zmod and figuring out how to add things and add collision data so we could actually change the dimensions and features of the ballparks themselves. It's a shame 2K editing never got to that level, though I think my wife would think differently... Anyway, I'd love to be part of this somehow.

    Looks really nice, Trues!
  4. Ty, any chance you can make it possible to edit stats in a dynasty? This would help out with those inside the park HRs that are called triples or doubles and could fix other scoring errors. Also if you could change the team that the player was on as well during a dynasty, that would be useful for trades that occur during the season that you want to replicate in your dynasty.
  5. Hey KG the update looks good, but you were way too kind to Freddie Bynum. The guy couldn't hit his way out of a paper bag. I'd lower his contact and power down to the lower 60s at least against RHP. Also Bedard has a cutter in his array of pitches.
  6. The wall.dat file determines foul balls and HRs, basically the limit of the playing surface and surrounding walls. The coll.dat is for general collision data in and outside the stadium. For example the batter's eye in CF in my Lauderdale mod. Balls hit above and beyond the 401 ft. mark in CF needed to be called HRs so I edited the wall.dat to make this change. However the balls would still pass through the CF batter's eye, so to make them bounce off it, I had to edit the coll.dat file. So now if a HR is hit above the 401 mark, it will bounce off the batter's eye yet still be called a HR.
  7. It all depends on what you want to do really. If you just want to change ads here and there, it's not that bad. However if you want to change the structure at all or the OF dimensions with the correct collision data, then it may get a little trickier. A lot of people are scared off by it, but it isn't as hard as it looks. It's been a little easier for me because I've done some major changes already so now it's just tweaking what I have. But if you want to produce something from scratch - be prepared to be glued to your computer for quite some time. I've put in hundreds of hours in on my Fenway and Oriole Park mods over the past two years to get them where they are now. So I wouldn't call it hard, just time consuming.
  8. Unfortunately you have to work with each part one at a time.

    The Big O's Fenway Park Lite for MVP 2005 v 1.1 To install just extract the .big files to your data/stadium folder in the MVP folder. I've spent many hours trying to perfect this mod, so a donation to my efforts via Paypal would be appreciated and my address to do so is jtrea81@roadrunner.com. If you have any comments or questions please e-mail me at thebigoriole@yahoo.com or reach me via PM. Enjoy! Revisons: v.1.1 - This adds the new textures from the Field Changer mod and should hopefully be a solution to some who are having crashes with the Fenway in the MVP 08 mod until rolie's new version is released. NOTE: There are no changes since the 1.0 version except for the field textures. Rolies new version will take care of that. This is just to tide people over and to make Fenway work in the MVP 08 mod until that is released and nothing more. This update was never intended to have 2008 changes. v.1.0 - First release
  10. The graphics you are looking for are located in the three field.fsh files. You will have to change the .bmp in all three to it because of the three different grass patterns. You should be able to figure out the rest using Pirate's tutorial, if not feel free to give me a PM.

    The Big O's Fort Lauderdale Stadium for MVP 2005 v.1.1 I've created this mod to represent Fort Lauderdale Stadium, the Spring Training home for the Orioles. It is pretty close to the real thing and has the same dimensions in LF, RF and CF as the actual stadium. I hope you have as much fun playing in it as I do. This archive includes the stadium mod and the stadium selection screen files for Fort Lauderdale Stadium. This mod replaces Spring Training Stadium #3. As with all other mods, remember to backup the files that are to be replaced before installing this mod. Stadium installation: extract the a003day.big file to your data/stadium folder in the MVP folder. Stadium select screen installation: extract the eazip.exe, 1a03.fsh and install.bat files to your data/frontend folder. Run the install.bat file. Extract the FEENG.LOC file to your data folder in the MVP folder. Special thanks to Dan Higgins (higgybaby) from OriolesHangout.com for taking the excellent pictures for me that I used and to ChicagoCubs720 for his assistance with the creation of the stadium select screen. As this mod took many hours and much effort to complete, a donation to my efforts via Paypal would be appreciated and my address to do so is jtrea81@roadrunner.com. If you have any comments or questions please put them my MVP Announcements thread on MVPMods.com or e-mail me at thebigoriole@yahoo.com. Enjoy!
