NLSC 2013/2014 Open Source Roster for NBA 2K14
What's is all about?
In a nutshell, I've been wanting to do something for NBA 2K14 PC, but I'm not sure how often I'll be able to provide a roster update for the game. However, I thought it might be useful to start a community project in which we develop an open source current season roster (the current season of course being 2013/2014) that not only offers a satisfying gameplay experience, but also provides anyone with a base to start their own current roster. Basically, I'm putting this out there not only to update the game, but also to give a head start to anyone who would like to update the rosters on a regular basis, by making a few updates and corrections to the official rosters. As the project progresses, I'd also like to add missing historical players, for a more complete and well-rounded update to work from.
What can the community do?
Anything and everything! Feel free to suggest edits and corrections, make edits and corrections, re-release an edited version of the rosters, contribute art updates...you name it. I'd like to make these rosters a solid base for anyone wanting to make regular updates, so anyone who's willing to make rosters updates has a good place to start.
There's just one catch: again, this is an open source project, so if you're looking to get involved, I ask that you keep your contributions open source and let anyone use them in any re-edited releases. If you do release a roster based on the roster, a small mention of the project somewhere would be appreciated, but no need to ask permission first. Feel free to just take the roster and get started on your own release!
Key Features of v0.1
Here's what's in the roster so far:
- 2013/2014 season rosters, accurate as of February 9th, 2014
- Updated lineups and rotations, based on the games from February 9th, 2014
- Corrected jersey numbers
- Injuries removed
- East and West All-Star lineups updated (Anthony Davis added in place of Kobe Bryant on the West squad)
To Do List
Here are the things that the project needs to develop into a solid base roster for anyone who wants to make their own updates:
- Updated ratings
- Remove Skill Boost arrows
- Add missing historic players (with art)
- Updated team data such as playbooks etc, for better performance
- A set of slider suggestions
- Art updates
- Anything else that could enhance the roster
I guess that's about it for now. Hopefully, we can make this project work. At the very least, I might be able to give a small leg up to someone who wants to maintain a current season roster update by doing a little bit of the work to get them started.
