Baron Davis hasn't aged when it comes to face details, that might as well be a recent scan. + He appeared in a great number of Inside the TNT episodes, along with Chris Webber. Maybe they will have some side-court action for NBA 2K18 - maybe that's why his game face is spot on. Still waiting to see Chris Webber's face though. I forgot they had one of those behind-the-back previews for him too.

We can't compare the 2K faces to modded faces because modders are just building on what 2K has created and are not creating from scratch. They could have used a recent scan of both Davis and Bryant and just made minor adjustments as pointed out below.

In the Baron Davis photo I noticed that the Andrei Kirilenko model is not appropriate for that year by looking at his hair. Also Baron Davis appears to be wearing 2016 hyperdunks.
That is all fine with me. We know that is Kobe Bryant, We know it's Baron Davis. We know there will be some inaccuracies. As long as these models have received some attention and we are able to edit accessories, we should be ok.

And plus, with 2K, half the fun is fixing everything with mods. Game wouldn't be nearly as fun for me if everything was flawless. :lol:

Every year, the thing I look forward to the most is when the game is first released, going through all the faces using the Limnono Modifier. It takes a couple days, but man... when you find a player you can use in a roster... its the best feeling. When I found Webber last year, I almost had a heart attack I was so excited.

I just noticed that Kobe is wearing a bicep band, which was so common during the mid-2000's and no player uses anymore. Pretty cool. I remember trying to convert one of the elbow bands into a bicep band by editing 3d models back in NBA 2k14, but I'm not talented enough for that.

Is it face and body from nba 2k16 to prime Kobe? Are you kidding me? I hope this is just example for rating reveal and that face will be not in the game. Kobe face in All time Lakers screenshot. Sorry, I'm not impressed. Same thing with T-mac etc. every year. In other hand they can post very good Baron Devis face. Is it that hard to make proper faces?

Cover boy's short sleeve and Kobe's in 07-08.

And compare those to the original 2k "short" sleeve. :facepalm: Or maybe my attention to details it's too much for 2k?

Bet you buy it anyway.

Ok, that's so 2014. Eric Gordon has a completely different hair, he has a beard now. Some of these players really need a rescan over Kyrie's 5th attempt or so, even though he is the cover athlete.

Whoever ripped it off Gordon's IG did it. Here's the original:

From August 18, 2017:

Not sure where the glaring differences are that require a re-scan...The beard is a bit scarce in 2k but its not like Gordon is rocking a full beard. Plus the modding community could fix that within minutes.

Personally, I'm thoroughly impressed with the visual side of 2k this year. Especially having face scans for players like Wayne Seldon Jr. and Caris Levert. Hopefully makes adding the missing players easier.

This thread is also for the console users. They don't have the luxury to expect everything to get modded. I get the fact that they can't get rescans for bench warmers, but the SMOY should get on the top of list for rescans.

In addition to that, it's clear Gordon has the same face as in 2K15 + a few details added to match the new level of graphics. It looks low quality in comparison to other players.

Image

Hopefully, they tweak him before the release of the game as we've seen with Kawhi. No beard in the screenshots, yet he appears to have a beard in the ghetto footage.

It's unexpected to see Westbrook under 95. Then Harden will be 95+ player. Funny.

Nothing new here, just some offical ratings. Wasn't D. Wade an 84 OVR like a couple of screenshots ago, lol?

Does this prove that 2K doesn't think Westbrook should have won MVP? Considering he's lower overall than Harden, Leonard, LeBron and Durant? lol.

well just preordered. why not, right? lol. lighting looks same as 16/17, perhaps a bit darker. of course the 2k yellow tint and over-fogging will need to be adjusted via reshade. will prob post some settings again. anyway, sad to talk about changing the look before seeing it first hand, but have seen enough pics/video (and enough experience with 2k) to get a sense that reshade will be needed, at least to get it to look the way I want it to! good stuff folks, looking forward to release.

There's definitely no yellow tint. It's probably your monitor. That or, you got used to your reshade so now accruate colors look inaccurate to you. If anything, the white in the jerseys is a touch too blue. But for sure no yellow tint. And the lighting is definitely altered a bit from 2K17.
