Stadium Lighting Color Mod - Celtics Mod

Postby bongo88 on Wed Sep 26, 2018 3:55 pm

Every once in a while I decide to tinker with the stadium PostEffect.FxTweakables and slightly change the stadium lighting. I wrote a more in depth tutorial here.

Anyways, most of 2k18 stadiums have a warm yellow lighting. I usually try to change the lighting to have a similar feel compared to real life stadiums.
When compared to a real life picture, these tweaks are not perfect. Rather, i just like to capture the "essence" of the real stadium.

Anyways, i've fiddled with a few in the past, but i usually just overwrite stuffs and forget stuffs. I figured that if i tweaked a stadium lighting i would post it here in case anybody wants to use it.

Again, the postFx tools are not extensive enough to make exact replicas. Rather, considering how warm the default 2k18 stadiums are in luminosity, i just try to make the stadium relatively similar.

This project will be rather slow. I am not really rushing it. If i make some tweaks, i'll post them here (mostly so i don't lose them, haha).

Celtics Stadium

Again, can't make a perfect replica. Just like to have a similar feel while playing the game.
I've attached the PostEffect.FxTweakables to this post. just drag it into the celtics stadium (s005.iff) and see if you like the changes.

IMO if You tweak PostEffect.FxTweakables, You have to change the brightness of each floor.

for 2k18 it might be somewhere in crowd.data in the stadium file. I haven't really looked into it much. I could run a hex compare between 2k17 crowd data and 2k18 crowd data, which would help narrow it down a bunch. not sure if i'll get to it soon. but yeah, havent looked into it much.

Edit: or it might be in the crowd_lighting.FxTweakables (file in the stadium file). haven't run a compare on that file.

yeah, i agree. This is just a place for me to throw my stadium post.fx whenever i make them. I might get around to tweaking the floors. Part of the problem is i have no idea who made the stadiums/floors (aamarrowade, mani live, etc etc) to give permission for the textures.

I guess i could just put a blanket permission statement crediting all the mod authors. maybe i'll do that sometime.
Anyways, This is just a random slow project. I usually do a random stadium every once in a while. So, not really expecting much activity here on this thread.

Celtics Stadium

I brightened the post.fx and darkend the crowd.fx . Will probably not touch this stadium much more.

Lighting is perfect (Y)
you just have to edit the brightness of the floor (around -20 -30)

s0xx_floor_lightmap.iff has a huge role on parquet brightness.
