If you enjoy this mod and wish to show appreciation, it would be awesome for you to Image.

NCAA March Madness 2K14 is back for the 2015-16 season!! What started as a 5-Team Demo in January of 2014 (Old MM 2K14 Thread) has turned into hands down the most accurate, complete, real life College Basketball mod in 2K Series (dare I say video game?) history! It is an unbelievable testament to the amazing community members here at the NLSC! Selfless coming together, chipping in, contributing, and helping of one another has made this project a truly special one! Some thank you's...

"I cannot thank those who have put countless hours in enough. slimm44's roster, tendencies, and sliders are the absolute best gameplay I have ever experienced with this game. monzki15 has made the visual accuracy of player faces head and shoulders above anything we've ever seen. Pepis21 has been rock solid for now a third straight year in this mod, putting out amazing uniforms and courts. Manni Live and kahoona have produced incredibly accurate and visually stunning updated courts as well. THEUNTAMEDBEAST has assisted majorly with big components from his Global to be added to a custom NCAA Global I've created on for this project. shinron15 helped out with the boot screens and other front end imagery, robsky001 with shoes... I know there's tons of names I'm leaving out, but please know that I truly appreciate every bit of work contributed. You guys are all amazing, and this would never be available for the enjoyment of everyone were it not for each of you. Thank you."

Re: MARCH MADNESS 2K15 -- Early W.I.P.

Postby bigh0rt on Fri Aug 22, 2014 5:49 am

Sorry for those who were hoping for/expecting screens, or anything from this stage in the game. I just wanted to get the thread going, so on and so forth.

For anybody who wants a brief history on what we've done here, check out the MARCH MADNESS 2K14 thread. Essentially what the incredibly talented and hard working members of the NLSC were able to do last year was release the most complete, accurate, true to life college basketball game to ever hit the 2K Series, starting with a 5-Team Demo that was released in January.

With the information about NBA 2K15 for PC moving to the next gen platform, and the uncertainty of a timetable on when we can realistically expect to be able to modify graphic files and/or rosters, the smartest, safest, and best bet would seem to be to get an extremely early start on doing something that I have been told is unprecedented, and updating an NCAA mod for a later season. The thought is extremely exciting, and we've already got people working on updating rosters and graphic files and it's still August, so we are expecting to see something as early as October/November!!

droc81yo has been putting tireless work into the roster. Removing players who graduated, moved on to the professionals, or whatever other reason are no longer with their teams, and including new incoming freshmen, so on and so forth. Getting their Bios accurate, rating them, and not only creating Cyberfaces for many of the players, but using the same 'Look-A-Like' technique I used with (IMO) great success in the MM2K14 roster. I'm incredibly excited to see what he's been able to do! Him taking the reigns in this regard has really been the monumental step in taking another leap forward in updating and improving on this mod.

So, all that said, I wish there was more information to provide right now, but really this is just to give everybody a heads up that there are definite intentions to build upon last year's huge success and knock another home run out of the park with March Madness 2K15. We're always looking for anybody who can contribute here at the NLSC, in any way possible. A good place to start would be to download MM2K14, and see if you can improve upon a court, a uniform, an arena, a cyberface; anything! We had such amazing contributions last year from so many people, I know that we will able to replicate that again this year!!

Thanks!!

It's a nice thought, and maybe I'm a pessimist, but I see it being a little while. It is my understanding that the last time we switched generations, it took a substantial amount of time to get tools up and running (though maybe that was NBA Live? Or when we transitioned from Live to 2K? It was shortly after I took my hiatus from the NLSC...)

It would be nice, and of course it's always an option if things pan out, but if not, we will have an awesome mod that surpasses even last year. (Y)

I have rating/tendencies/vitals/rotations of 5 teams left( already matched their cyber faces and did names). This will be done by the end of the weekend. I also created Arizona's new jerseys. When this is completed I am going to go back through the entire roster and edit the redshirts (they were not in the game last year) and the freshman, and JUCO players I created and tweak them. Now that I purchased ESPN Insider, I have really good info for ratings and especially tendencies. I'm also going to go through the large database of CF I have permission to use (thanks bigh0rt) and try to clear out as many duplicate generic CFs as I can. (for instance the Devin Booker look a like CF is used about 10 times throughout the roster because it is the only one I have for that skin tone and hairstyle).

The advantage of starting this in early July is that I have time to get this roster as accurate and realistic as possible without having to rush anything and sacrifice producing a great final product. That being said all we need is new jerseys and of course we always need CFs. I have all the Arizona guys CFs made and some 5 stars (Alexander, Okafor, Oubre, and Turner) that JPark gave me permission to use. I believe he is making some more as well.

If anyone makes jerseys , CFs or court updates just let me know and I will add them in the game.


P.S. I've played quite a few games to test out rotations and player tendencies and these are a lot of fun, can't wait till it's finished!

droc81yo, another great resource is Phoenix's thread. He's done a lot of guys who don't have wildly recognizable faces, and out of context, look 'generic', and are top quality. He's also given me permission to use his work in March Madness.

Also, all of the teams (IIRC, maybe a few of the last ones I added didn't have them, but I believe they did), have accurate Playing Styles, and in a lot of cases, Playbooks (based off of slimm's findings for what plays work and what are broken, etc.) for their 2014 selves. I would definitely, at the very least, use those as templates for the 2015 update. It's a large reason (along with the Settings and Ratings/Tendencies) that the game plays like an NCAA version, rather than the NBA counterpart.

Thrilled to see all the work you've done, droc81yo. (Y) (Y)

I have some cf's from marcelcloses5 or seasky66 or wherever his new name was. He sent ot them to me by email, we could use it. I know his attitude wasnt the best but his cfs are way better than the ones for 2015 prospects, what do you think?

So rosters are done. (other than maybe editing some walk-ons that are not listed yet to fill out the rosters). All players are created and have realistic attributes, and rotations are set to what they "should" be in late August. Most numbers edits are done except for a about 10 teams that don't have their rosters out yet.

That being said, I'm having one heck of a time trying to find birth dates. Even official team rosters don't always have birth dates in the player bios, and the scouting sights just have their class of high school graduation. Does anyone know a good resource for finding this info? I'm pretty close to just guestimating that all freshman are 18 turning 19 this year since it's becoming a real pain to find birth dates for quite a few of these guys.

Birthdays are a pain because they don't list them on roster pages. However, if you go to a team's ESPN roster page, and individually click players' names, it lists their birth dates (e.g. here is Marcus Lee's). What I did whenever one was unavailable (a lot of time with red shirts, transfers, and sometimes what felt like randomly...), I left the month/day of the player I was editing, and put in a year presuming age (whatever would make them 18, 19, 20, etc.). This is something that I wouldn't recommend troubling yourself over too much, since it is such a minor detail.

Everybody is welcome to help in whatever way they're able. Uniforms are always welcome (check out the MM2K14 download, and feel free to update or upgrade anything you'd like, or make throwback uniforms, etc.), as well as courts (same -- feel free to update or upgrade). Some different arena options we could use would be fantastic, for those teams who did not get a team specific one. Just dumping all of the NBA/2K specific stuff, and replacing it with NCAA. Really, anything else you make, as well. (Y) The AAU mod is sweet, so I'm sure you can put your talents to good use.

If you make CFs, check with droc81yo to see what teams he hasn't made faces for, what ones we could use, and it'd be awesome to get those. (Y) (Y)

Here are some great links to some Iowa State Cyclone throwbacks that could be included. Maybe these illustrations will make it nice and easy to use them?

This is from when coach Fred Hoiberg played. Great looking classic uniforms.
http://cycloneuniforms.weebly.com/19921.html

These are the uniforms from arguably the best Iowa State team of all time in 2000. They went to the elite eight, where they lost in a crazy game to the eventual National Champs, Michigan State. Iowa State was clearly the 2nd best team in the nation that year, despite losing in the round of 8.
http://cycloneuniforms.weebly.com/20001.html

These uniforms from 2005 don't offer much history, just a 2nd round NCAA tournament. However, I like these because they were the last jerseys that were in the College Hoops 2K franchise.
http://cycloneuniforms.weebly.com/20051.html

And here are their current uniforms. Early indication is the uniforms will be the same as last year. Note the 'JO' patch on the jerseys, which was placed after legendary coach Johnny Orr passed last winter. I'm not sure if the patch will be worn this season or not.
http://cycloneuniforms.weebly.com/2014.html

Finally, I want to say THANK YOU for this great project and including my alma mater - Iowa State.

Also, here is the Iowa State new court design. Some minor changes, like the new Big 12 logo, Twitter handle, Hilton Coliseum at the bottom of the court instead of the top.

I was messing around with association mode trying really hard to find a way to emulate a college game. Here are a few ideas I had. In all cases all 30 teams would need to be controlled by user and some staff task needed to be automated.


Years Pro could be used for the players age. The actual words "Years Pro" could be changed to Age using RED MC's InGame Text Editor.
The original age attribute could then be changed to something like "Declare for Draft" since the original age value is the biggest factor in players retiring. Players usually retire when this value gets around 34- 36 some stay longer, some retire before that.
The retired players would be equivalent to players leaving to go pro. There are a lot of reason's this still would not work. One reason being the draft.
Another reason is Years pro for each draft class could be used for age as each this value will always equal 1 for rookies. There were many other reasons this did not work out.

I then simulated an association with becoming a free agent being equivalent to graduating/ going pro. In this case I made most of the contracts 1 year contracts or contracts with player options, so players could choose to leave or stay. This worked somewhat but the contract aspect makes players stay too long such as 99 rated freshman would leave for nba in real life but in game he would only leave if it was last year of his contract or if he had a bad contract and it was an option year. Also the Free agents were sometimes signed for the minimum by the CPU, but some of the signed free agents were supposed to represent players who had "Declared for draft" or "graduated".

I'm still trying to think of a way to utilise association with college mod but i need better Ideas. The challenges I face are :
Getting players to retire after 4/5 years.
Bad teams always get the best rookies/ freshman due to the draft order

If we could get the logic to work correctly in our favor this mod would be truly great.

The latter. It may be awhile before 2K15 is able to be modded, especially to this degree.

Will this mod overwrite any original files? Will I still be able to play 2k14, or will it all be college ball 2k15?

The version I'm uploading will be the "full" version, if anyone wants to separate the versions you can use a mod manager, or someone could put files into a "lite version".

The amount of work both in the roster, and re-naming files, etc. makes a 'Lite' Version totally not worth it. Stick with the Full. (Y) (Y)

How do you delete players from the roster?

For instance, Oregon only has 10 players on their roster, but have 14 slots assigned to them. I know they need 12. So I have 2 players rated in the 30's with 0 minutes assigned named Transfer Gone and No Player, but there is still two slots to delete.

I tried assigning players to other schools by changing the team ID, but that just made it so they were still on Oregon but their portrait had the assigned schools logos, and when trying to assign in the game it would say "player already assigned to that team".

You need to go to the teams tab in RED MC and change number of players on team to 12 the for R13 and R14 use "-1" value. This should remove the players from the team.

Thanks for the info.

The roster is basically done. I am now just going through and updating #s and height/weight. I started these in July and needless to say some rosters have changed. I'm about half way through the re-edit, to ensure that rosters are accurate. I haverrotations done as well, however I need to watch some games to build the most accurate rotations. I created the new Arizona jerseys and did cyberfaces for all the Wildcats. I'm really impressed with how this turned out. There are no random faves , every player has a cyber face look alike with realistic hairstyles. I also resigned the divisions to include all the top 25 test in the current AP poll, that were included in the original mod.These divisions are also based on geographic region/ conferences. For instance the West pacific division has Arizona, UCLA, Oregon, San Diego St and Gonzaga and the East Atlantic has Duke, Syracuse, North Carolina, Virginia and UCONN. This will be nice for those like me that want to play association/season. This way if you play the schedules of more than 29 games you will play your division teams more times.

I will most likely release this a couple weeks into the college season just for the sake of building rotations and updating gear, other than those the roster will be finished in a week or two at the most.

droc81yo is doing all the heavy lifting here. Once the roster is primed and good to go, then you can start getting cute and trying to get more CFs added, updating courts and uniforms, so on and so forth.

Also, droc81yo, you do not need to include those 11th and 12th scrubs on Oregon. You are allowed to have 10 players on a team using RED MC. You can have as few as 6 players, like I had in NBA JAM Mod. Just do what TGsoGood said, and make sure that you have all the slots properly filled for 10 players (and the different rotations -- I just made them all the same).

Thanks bigh0rt, I'll just include the 10 players. I believe there are 40 teams. (I have not added any teams from the last mod).
Also the Oubre cf looks really good, I don't remember who created it, but they gave me permission to use about 5 that are incoming freshman.I look through my PMs and credit them when I release this.

Roster is done finally! Still have rotations, which are hard to do until some meaningful games are played. have learned college kids get into a lot of trouble, lol. Didn't get a key for the teams tab in RED MC originally, and it's down now so I may need someone who was the teams tab to edit the divisions ( I have a list of where to put the teams) Other than that, it's good to go. I'll update rotations and have this out soon.

:applaud: good to hear.

Once this is released I will run some tests with making this mod use all generic players. If this works out I will try making a roster with only youtube commentators' MyPlayers and community member, no real players. But first I want to check out this mod.
