D43 Ultimate Classic Teams Roster

Postby Dee4Three on Thu Sep 14, 2017 10:59 am

Placeholder....

I'll be looking at adding 30 new teams this year instead of 18 like last year. If you would like to help, please let me know.

Stay tuned.

don't start your rosters just yet, the players on the all-time teams don't have all their badges atm. 2k said it's a bug and planning a fix next roster update.

The Dream Team Larry Bird and Charles Barkley CFs are still there Dee. I tried trying the Reggie Miller cf number but the player became invisible so either he has no CF in game or he has a different cf number.

Kendrick Perkins and Moses Malone are still in the game. We will need a Miller and Wallace.

But I am optimistic.

I have some bad news...

They took out A LOT of faces, faces that we used in NBA 2K17 to complete many of the classic teams (Examples, missing Royal Ivey, Radmanovic, etc).

I am only up to 1300, and I've encountered about 20 faces they took out, and many of them were faces that we used to fill default classic teams and used classic teams.

I'm keeping going, but this is looking troubled...

So... this project can't happen. And I've never been more bummed.

They removed (And this is just with spotchecking)

Michael Olowakandi
Troy Hudson
Walter McCarty
Luther Head
Vladamir Radmanovic
Oliver Miller
Jarrod Mustaf
Royal Ivey
Rasheed Wallace
Reggie Miller
Richard Dumas
Mark West
Frank Johnson
Derrick Mckey
Dale Davis
Bill Bridges

All of these guys are not only vital for new teams, but also for filling default classic teams. I feel sabotaged.. and I know that sounds dramatic... but I almost regret sharing the work we did for NBA 2K17. A few of the euro players are also missing, which were used to fill rosters.

I can still release a Ultimate Draft Roster and a Ultimate All Time Teams Roster with no duplcates. But this roster has a very, very low chance of being completed. And I don't do anything half-assed, so I refuse to do it half-assed.

I'm just really bummed right now. So is my brother.

Just replace those teams with other teams. It would suck loosing this roster over a couple of teams that have those players.

I wouldn't be able to include the 92-93 Suns, or a Reggie Miller team, and I would be missing so many players that fill the default classic teams. I would have to half ass it.

The point of the roster is to fill the classic teams completely, and add a bunch of new ones. But they removed so many pieces...

There's got to be a way to convert a face from last year without molding a face thats already in the game. Maybe Greg can help us out....

Can't you use the 30 (normal) teams ? Like you did on 2K17 for the Rockets and the Suns ?

I will begin my modding tests later today (still in hospital t this time).
I have only had a few minutes to ensure the game worked for me.

Try placing a face and png iff file into th moddd folder and renaming them to one of the missing cfs. Then go in game chane player to that id and confirm if the face is now visible. If so, then we wil be avle to convert 2K17 faces more easily.

Please let me kow the results as I wil not be able to go home for a few more hours.

That wouldn't work anyways because they revamped how models work, last year's models are different from this years in terms of structure so the EXE file would never be able to load them.

Honestly 2K isn't trying to sabotage. They probably had a chance to get some those players in the game and that's why they were there. This year, there's a Danny Granger face and a Barkley face which suggest that 2K puts faces on a basis of who they believe they can obtain the rights too and wanted to create some room for the rookies and new legends.

No progress yet because I am waiting for a roster update that fixes the badges.

And Jonny2K.... I can list like 100 players that are still in the files that hold no relevance whatsoever to any team they would consider putting in... trust me.

It doesn't matter at this point. I'll start working on the roster one team at a time once the roster is updated by 2K, and I will request cyberfaces as I finish teams.

I hope this roster works out, i was late to playing 2K on PC but i discovered the Classic Teams roster for 2K17 and it made the game for me. I've tried playing with some of the 2K18 classic teams but with all of the missing players and a good number inaccurate faces really ruins the experience. Hopefully you guys are able to figure out how to make it work with the unexpected changes you've encountered with 2k18 (Y)
