Alright, please can you give us a list of all those major prospects who RECENTLY withdrew and had their cyberfaces already done ? I think by those you mean PJ Washington...is there anybody else ?


Off the top of my head...PJ Washington, Tyus Battle, and Jontay Porter were all completed and now must be replaced.

But that's not the whole story. That occurred under different circumstances when more was set, i.e. I wasn't the only one making faces. The vocal minority is not giving me any ambition to continue killing myself over this. It'll be out eventually.

Appreciate the effort you've all put into this one.

Bluejaybrandon, please don't tell us that this draft-class will FOR SURE release before the draft.. As that isn't for sure. None of us want to hear this, as every promise you've made thus far with the release of the draft class hasn't come about.

All we want is for this draft class to be released, NOT another update telling us that the draft class has yet again been pushed back.

Bet. Forgot people around here only care about "what have you done for me lately". You know the creators and who have produced content for this project. Hell, some have even released their content for the class already. You're fully capable of compiling it yourself.

Let me know next time you find out a close family member has anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to live. Then maybe you'll understand that living and working out of town and having to drive to see them, which you only have time for on the weekends, takes precedent over a video game draft class. So yes, I will be missing the deadlines I set and I could care less when I have something that is actually life and death on my plate currently.

Damn that's disappointing if you're really canceling it after all the work you've put in... @bluejaybrandon just some advice since I know this isn't the first project you've canceled due to criticism, the most important thing you have to remember is that this is a free mod you are making. That means you don't owe any of us anything since your own time is the only cost associated with this. I really recommend that you don't let the criticism get to you because of that - no matter when you would have released this it would have been a release of immeasurable value to all of us, regardless of the delays.

However, I do also hope that you learn to never give release dates or set deadlines for yourself. Not only does that lead to disappointment from us but it also puts an unnecessary pressure on yourself that does not account for unforeseen life circumstances that are always bound to happen. Taking that to the extreme you can do what J. Cole did with his last album, wait until everything is completely done before even officially announcing the project (and then release it a few days after announcing). You already have a reputation as an elite creator on this forum so building hype or getting enough exposure won't be a problem.

I really appreciate that. Yes, I will certainly avoid release dates for anything in the future. I did want to clarify I'm not cancelling it. Too many people have contributed too many resources for me to selfishly do that.

That being said there is no release set. It'll go live as soon as it's done, whenever that may be.

Hey Bluejay this thread has 7 pages of which 98% has been nothing but praise for you and the contributors to this project. You can't allow yourself to be bothered or upset by a few who don't respect your or other modders personal time nor life issues. It's your project and that being said whenever you release it is when you release it. It doesn't matter if you give a date or not none of us who isn't creating said project is entitled to have this project released on our timeline. You can't worry about who may be disappointed by it haven't been released yet because you aren't being paid for for it and your life isn't going to be enriched when you release it. To be honest most people, even the complainers are going to forget about how long it took once it's released and even still you're going to have people complaining about player X wasn't added or this player's nose is off and so on and so on. So no matter what you are going to have someone who has something to complain about (nature of the beast) but you need to ignore the negative and do what you're doing and release your project when you're satisfied with your work.

AGREED--thank you for the work Bluejay. Looking forward to playing with the class all summer.

Could we at least get a demo release before 2k19 or the actual draft night. I don't think everyone's waiting for a complete draft, just something that is playable.

The sentiments regarding the overall work and attention to detail are spot on. End of the day - this is a video game. Thanks for the effort and I look forward to the release. Take your time getting to that point and take care of yourself and family first.

Jesus f'n Christ, I know you guys are anxious about the release of this draft class and you should be! But please, for the love of God, or whatever it is that you believe in, stop with the requests to release something that is so close to being done. Brandon is doing two massive projects at the same time and has a bigger issue on the plate than a goddamn draft class or roster. Really struck a nerve with these comments. It's like you do not read that this man could lose someone in his life soon and you put unnecessary pressure on him. Please, I beg you, stop with that.

Thank you.

Honestly, I'm completely overwhelmed. Between PM's providing help and people's comments here, it truly means so much to me.

I felt completely lost, not only on the project, but with life. To see this community behind this project and want to see it succeed is inspiring. You're all incredible and I want to think this is a shining example of why I love this community.

I will get it done. We will get it done. Thank you and god bless.

What up Blue?! I'm just writing to express my compliments for your hard work on this draft class despite that massive setback with nearly 1/3 or 1/2 of the prospects choosing to go back to school for another year. & I'm sorry to see what you're going through with all these haters or anxious modders that be wanting this class SO BAD. If anything, I'd advise to not let anyone & their BS to get to you.


Besides, I been coping with the wait myself by making up my own draft classes based off the PS4 version from PS4 players such ass embrace the pace & jackmove only that I have the following added with CFs & pic portraits:


DeAndre Ayton
Luka Doncic
Marvin Bagley III
Michael Porter Jr
Kevin Knox

& here are the ones with CFs but no pic portraits:

Trae Young
Tony Brown Jr
Malik Newman

All CFs were based of Razor so credit & kudos to him. If anything, just keep working at it. Eventually I may need to do some class rearranging myself.

Hey man. just read your posts. I feel for you man. Having a love one in a life or death situation is really a guywrenching experience. Hope everything works out for you.
As for the creation of this mod, I just want to add, if it matters, JUST DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY man. If this mod makes you happy, to cover up everything that sucks in life, then do this. But if this add to the stress, just shut this down. or at least continue in your own discretion.
But yeah, whatever makes you happy. Good luck in life.

PC only unfortunately. Unable of anyway to port it over. I know 2k is on sale on pc so if you have something that runs it I suggest snagging it now.

What's good Blue? I hope you're feeling ok as you still work hard to put in the finishing touches on your draft class. In the meantime for all you modders that are still waiting for the class, I do have my own version of the draft classes based off the PS4 version if any of you are interested. I'll post it in a little bit.

Not trying to take anything away from you but it would probably be more on-topic to make your own thread. I'm not a fan of the fact some of the cyberfaces were pre-released but its a reality. So if you're compiling them in a class, it will be better off in a specific thread for that class. Then when people have questions, there is no confusion.

No offense taken bro; I'm just trying to chime in on the draft class thing. As I said, I'll be posting up a thread about my DC in a little while since I have to put some work in to make sure it's accurate enough though so people can download & have fun with it in the meantime. Also I'm sorry about what your going through with life & all while you work on this project. Guess some people could have &/or act ungrateful sometimes when they want some things done for their convenience with sometimes no regard to what the creators go through with their work and all.

Faces are 95% done. Signatures are 90% done. It's just about portraits and ratings now. I'm working my way through them but it looks like the way things are headed, I may be out of town next week for a funeral service. I'll do what I can but unfortunately I gotta play the hand life has dealt me. The good news for those of you that are anxiously waiting is that after that, I'll have nothing but free time. (Y)

For those of you wondering about the progress of the draft class, I've complied a google sheet here. The average is what the players overall will be based on. Players in green are already in the class (though not necessarily 100% ready). Players in red have not been added (no cyberface, portrait, in-game prospect, etc.).

There are obviously some major prospects that are missing that need to be included but whether or not I can get those done before a release is questionable. I may add them in after release because I'll have more time. Depends on the general consensus. If people do just want a release before the draft, obviously be aware that it is incomplete and for the true class you'll have to re-download.

Thank you for posting this!
And also, I wouldn't worry about the pressure of releasing the FULL COMPLETE project.
There is a reason why when you copy and paste a workspace on most OS, that the folder name changes to your_project_v1.1
What I'm trying to say is, don't worry if the first version you release isn't the COMPLETE version.. We as a community understand and respect the fact that there will be updates and future versions. We do this because we love you bluejaybrandon.. And ofc, we also just want to start up our new my leagues with your draft-class, regardless of if its missing some player projected to go in the first-round.

Dont worry about the release date, saying it will be done by the "end of the month", "end of the week" is only putting unnecessary pressure on yourself that your not able to meet. Just relax, take your time and put out a draft class that meets your full expectations. No matter how long it takes, the community will love it and appreciate it while the haters will still be using it.

At the risk of sounding like a "hater", I'd be pushing for a release as soon as possible (even if incomplete). This may be perceived as the selfish intent to just get the draft class in hand ASAP - sans comprehension for all the detailed work that goes into an undertaking of this magnitude. IT'S NOT (in total). It's mostly rooted in a much more practical perspective, with regards to the all the hard work that you and the CF makers have put in.

As I type this here in Chicago - it's June 6th. We just received news a few days ago that the early release of 2K19 will be September 7th. Now - I can't speak for anyone else here but I could never dedicate anymore than 2 to 3 hours to video games per day. Between work, school, kids, sleep, and life otherwise - it's just unrealistic. That said - there are 93 days to release of the latest iteration of the game. I (like many here) play all games in a season. You add in Summer-League and playoffs and you could be playing up to 120 games total. And that's just if you're attempting to fit in one season. I believe many here are waiting for the release to begin their franchise. Unfortunately (if set on utilizing this particular draft class), it can't begin until release. If only attempting to complete one full season (and intent on purchasing the new version of 2K upon release), it leaves roughly 90 days to play 85-90 (minimally) to 120 (maximally) games. That's a lot of game-playing in a short span of time!

Now - should this be the ultimate burden in regards to releasing? No! It's your work, done at your leisure. Life tosses adversity our way with no concerns for what we previously had planned. Obviously, your familial dealings trump some silly draft class.

As you have in past draft classes - you've done a thorough, bang-up job in regards to creating content with a fine eye for the details. PLEASE LET ME STRESS THIS ENOUGH!!!! It shouldn't be understated. What you're doing for PC players of the game is glorious. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! Time is a commodity! And you spending yours in such a selfless fashion is kind and admirable. That should be the narrative here. You do this for free, with everyone else in mind. That said - I'd like to see your hard work (along with everyone else that has contributed) utilized to the utmost. AND the selfish side of me eagerly anticipates release, so I can get at least one full season in before 2k19 is released.

Just my humble perspective. If I've come off as anything but that previously - my apologies. Be well.

We don't know what the modding situation will be like in 2k19. 2k might make it more difficult which would result in people sticking with 2k18.

Even if modding is still the same it's going to take a while for things to get going, probably another couple months before any significant progress is made on that front. I know I'll still be playing 2k18 until that time comes, as I'm sure others will. Being able to "start today" and import custom rosters/draft classes will be a much better experience than 2k19 upon release, especially with how many cyberfaces will be included in this project. The only thing that would be missing is new features added into the game (I'll admit I'm not following it closely, but something like a full G-League system for example). Everything else will be easily modded into 2k18 (new jerseys, arenas, etc.)

I don't think it's a huge deal to get it out immediately for these reasons. This game won't be suddenly obsolete and unplayable as soon as 2k19 comes out.

I agree Wzvd. I know that there are many that will still be playing 2K18 post the release of 2K19. Of course the drop of the new version won't make this one obsolete as some people are still playing NBA Live 2004.

I'm just expressing my own perspective and some of the members of the community that I've spoken with.
Regardless - the DC drops when it drops. I respect the creators prerogative to release it when he deems fit.

While that is a respectful critique it is highly subjective. There are many players, including myself, who don't play every game. Hell, in two months i can play out 2 decades in the league... With that being said, for many people waiting out the remaining week or 2 until bluejay gets this ready is not a problem really

Clearly, it's subjective. Hence the "can't speak for anyone else" and "my perspective". The variance in which people opt to enjoy 2K is all over the map. That's what makes it such an impressive game (in my humble OPINION :wink:). You're right though - it's not a problem nor am I treating it as such. I'm merely providing my point of view. Maybe I'm in the minority with it.
