NBA 2k18 - Ovi's Real Mechanics Sliders

Postby Ovi on Wed Apr 25, 2018 5:26 pm

Just wanted to share these sliders, i have finally concluded after countless hours spent experimenting and trying to make the game finally play like real basketball sim.


The scheme base was a case of trial & error and ofcourse i have to thank devroyce, EccentricMeat, whose sliders i have used at various points to learn different elements of the gameplay.

i tried to transform the gameplay to focus more on the "drive & kick" scheme that is heavily adopted in todays nba, where ball handlers, guards or star of the team (Lebron, Giannis, Kyrie, Lillard, Simmons, Westbrick) would drive to the basket, and kick it to the 3-point line if the defense collapses, that doesn't mean it's all going to be like that, you will see a varyation of everything, more focus on the 3-point shot, mid-range, and drives to the basket

Yes i understand the concern about the ease of driving, which has been the focus on just about every other game slider, but i found the balance, where you don't have to negate driving completely cause by doing so, you are practically eliminating driving from the gameplay, therefor you will not see lebron, westbrook,etc) drive to the basket, and that's really not fun to play through.


Anyhow i will include adjustments, if you completely want to eliminate driving, the choice is yours.

Values are for both CPU & USER, if you find the CPU very challenging & unforgiving, reduce offensive awareness, although it will effect the AI of the CPU in making plays, dribbles and so on.

Unfortunately i only use the game offline, never used 2kshare, so the best i can do, is perhaps take screen shots of the slides and post them instead, you can ofcourse just view them from your mobile phone, hope that works (Y)
