High School Roster in Progress

Postby Kenny4118 on Tue Dec 19, 2017 3:13 pm

Figured I would simply start a new thread, instead of continuing a thread that was mistitled for the direction it took.

So I have began the process of setting up a roster with the look and feel of High School basketball. I plan to do two actually, the first will be more of a generic version that is basically set up so that anyone who is interested in making their own states High School designs for play in My League, will have a roster that needs limited adjustments beyond replacing some player names or not, dealer choice I guess. The second roster will be for my home state of Indiana and to go along with the work I had previously done on PS4 on team designs. This roster will have the top players in the state added to the teams and hopefully have the team cities and names changed. Eventually, using several sources get to a very detailed representative of Indiana High School basketball. This is a second attempt on PC, my previous version had issues with crashing after game selection, which apparently has to do with the original roster having hidden rosters added to it.

I am rather new to PC gaming, so a lot of the modding is simply going to be out of my range of capabilities at this point. But I am going to try to use likenesses of a lot of the games current player faces, with names, bodies, ratings, and tendencies adjusted to capture the fill of High School basketball. However, there are some players that I think based on my limited understanding of the modding process, may have better faces than the current faces in game. If someone can or would like to contribute with changing some of the faces to clean shaven versions of these players, it will only add to the realism of the roster as a whole. Without any further ado...the list will follow. If you want to contribute please let me know, a precise time that you can download my work in progress, and an idea of how long you will need to complete the tasks, or if it is a big project that we can alternate days working on the roster, in order for both to proceed together, I am willing to do so, just let me know.

The list: Chris Bosh, Tony Allen, Michael Conley, Kevin Garnett, Rudy Gay, Gordon Hayward, Kyrie Irving, Lebron James, Jon Leuer, Kyle Lowry, Nerlens Noel, Dirk Nowitzki, Hakeem Olajuwon, Latrell Sprewell, Dwayne Wade, Chris Webber, and Andrew Wiggins.

If your interested in pitching in, my user name is Kenny4118 and the roster that I am currently working on is "New High School Progress" .

I would assume by the amount of views for the thread, there is some interest. So I will provide a bit of a progress report. I had an issue with getting the save listed in the original thread to show up in the uploads. But I was able to save it, change the name of the file, and re upload the roster under "High School". So far, I haven't quite had the same speed of progress as the first version. However, I think that is more due to the more systematic approach I am taking and also attempting to simultaneously creating a large pool of actual Indiana High School players in the free agent list while filling teams and editing each players bio info, and contracts. So far, I have completed up to the Nets roster with these edits. I may not be able to make much progress over the next couple of days due to Holiday stuff going on, but once I get through the current NBA teams, I will go back and begin editing player ratings, and tendencies, followed by rotations, and coaches options with the exception of changing coaches (had some trouble with that with previous attempts). But hopefully, I can get this really moving forward starting Tuesday.

Update: Sadly, I have completed the current NBA portion of the rosters with playable custom rosters, and also filled all the classic teams with players to make the roster considered valid by 2K standards; however, upon attempting to test the roster in my league, it again crashes at game select. At this point, I am going to go ahead and add to the All time teams despite no longer getting a message about filling rosters automatically. I am beyond pissed that this is failing to workout for the PC format, after being able to successfully complete on the PS4 for 2K18. I am going to try to at least add the All time rosters to 10 players slots filled and try again, and if that doesn't fix the problem, I may attempt to fill to 15, before totally abandoning the project. At this point the time investment, has at least made these two further investments of time worthy of salvaging the project as a whole. I will update again when I determine if this helps at all, but I am not expecting any success right now.

Second update: After taking the All time team rosters up to 10 players each, and running a test...when attempting a game they still crashed. So, now I have to add another 150 created players to the list to completely fill those teams to 15 each. And this will be my last gasp effort. I will pass along its results after completion.

Final Update: Filled the rosters (every last slot available on every team)...still crashes. If anyone wants to look into it to try to salvage this project from the scrap heap...its uploaded under "High School by Kenny". Not sure what anyone can do...but if someone makes a break through on it...please let me know and I will be happy to go back and continue editing players on the classic teams and all time teams to give them all the original goal of a High School feel. But for now, I guess I am going to pick back up the PS4 controller and play some games.

Hey Kenny I was able to load the Roster in myleague. I downloaded it then removed most the NBA players as well as players that had mismatched skin tones from the 30 NBA teams. I didn't bother with the extra teams since I just wanted to make sure the 30 NBA team myleague would work. I loaded and was able to start a game just fine. You can re-download it and start working again from there. Maybe just work with the 30 NBA teams. I can help as well just let me know what you need me to do.

Thanks Rob! I just tried it for my self, and it does play. I am sort of dumbfounded by it. I still see several NBA players that have names changed on it, and a couple that I didn't change in the free agent market. So I am wondering was you just deleting some of the random NBA guys or was there a method that you used. Also, how can you tell who has mismatched skin. I didn't change the skin color of any NBA players, just names, school, attributes and added sleeves to hide tattoos. The created players, I rarely changed skin color, and when I did, I just changed the preset faces to do so. So I am curious as to how moving forward with the additional teams, how to avoid the same issues?

Not really sure I figured it had to be something with a player being corrupt or something. I looked at the roster and some players had skin tone like this

Outside of that I did find a player that was completely blank in my game, so Im not sure maybe this could've did it. Do you have the latest game update?

Image

Also what are you doing for graphics like courts and jerseys, did you have that figured out?

Ok, I will look out for some of that weirdness. As far as the team courts and jerseys, I have created a bunch of Indiana High Schools, and bookmarked several other profiles that have also created Indiana High School uniform and court designs from the download inside MyLeague. There are some that have already created many of the top prep academy and top national power schools across the country. So I can tell you where to find the Indiana High School designs that I have created. My PC profile kenneth.descombes4118, kenny4118, and Joe_Brown4life are the ones I have created. Also AbovePar has some really high quality designs, but only has 30 because he duplicated uniforms with Pacer court design, I assume to simulate a state tourney. But there are actually a lot of designs available in the uploader, if your from a particular state, I would recommend just searching by the mascot name and browsing through the many pages. When you find something that is right, I would bookmark the creator, then check their other designs next. It seems to kick you out all the way of the downloader and then you will have to locate the team before if you haven't bookmarked the creator. You can always delete a bookmarked creator if there are better creators you discover later, but it can be quite a task for some popular team names i.e. Bulldogs.

I think I mentioned on the other thread originally discussing whether a PS4 roster can be transferred to PC, when I complete the generic roster designed for individual states with each of the 120 plus team slots filled up. If someone wants to turn it into a roster than would better simulate the power academy teams, or even an AAU style league playing a full schedule against themselves, that it can be done rather easily by doing a full redraft with all teams available for a 30 to 36 team MyLeague. Essentially, leaving off the bench and weaker players that make a individual state roster feel better in the free agency while having a more star oriented league.

I replaced the players that Rob deleted to get the roster to stop crashing. So tomorrow I am going to spend a bit of time adjusting rotations and then on to work on the classic teams set. Really, I do a lot of sweeping changes with quick editor just to save some time, then I will go back and fine tune most the attributes and tendencies to attempt to really force the teams with only a single good player to really work to get that player the majority of the shots. But there will be several teams that literally will not have a decent player on the whole roster, which may seem to be a waste, but at the same time, I think that having a wide range of team quality is only going to add realism. However, out of 120 or so teams, 5 to 10 that have little interest in playing with, isn't that bad, and if you don't want to play against them, then just don't add those teams to your MyLeague, is what I figure. But I like to have a game where I can just wipe the floor with the other team from time to time. Also, most teams are going to be very limited depth wise. About 5 or 10 will have a set of 5 serviceable bench players, but for this, it is more likely that one or two bench players will be really serviceable. I just think that the vast majority of H.S. teams in the country cannot afford to have the best player out for foul trouble, or a few starters sitting with foul trouble. So I try to reflect that with depth. But if that is not what someone wants, then I welcome them to download my roster and make their own changes. I have no issue with however anyone wants to use this roster.

Update: While keeping an eye out for more abnormalities with face and skin colors, I have fixed rotations on the 30 NBA teams, and have progressed through to the 89' Bulls with ratings and rotations. I do think that this will get to be completed by the weekend, and that is including tendencies for all teams, even All time teams. Once that is complete, I will leave it uploaded and post the final roster name, so that anyone can use it and adjust it to meet their interests. I will then start to work on adding some in the real Indiana High School players to another roster that will be specifically named Indiana HS Roster. I am hoping that someone can actually mod the team names for me within the roster so that anyone who is interested in that roster will know exactly which team is meant to be whom. As mentioned earlier, I already have uploaded enough teams court and uniform designs to fill the entire roster, so hopefully that will help those interested in playing a Indiana High School simulator can have an easier time setting up their My League with that completed. If I have issue sleeping tonight, I may get through all the classic teams tonight, and be ready for the All time teams tomorrow. If that is the case, I think I will be close to completion by Thursday evening. A big thanks to Rob for salvaging this project!

That sounds like a great idea...I have no idea how to accomplish that, hopefully someone else can chip in with that.

Update: I have completed up to the 2011 Bulls...there are a lot of classic teams on this game! I have been at it for a few hours already this morning, going to take a few hour break, and then try to get a good start at completing the classic teams and making a dent into the final 30 All time teams. I believe I am a little ahead of schedule for my end of the week completion goal.

Side note: I was looking at a few videos posted in the mod section by TGsogood, and seen that he is able to lower ages below 19. I am not sure how interested anyone would be with altering those through some mod technique that I am not in the know on. But if someone wants to add that level of realism to this roster once completed, I believe it will only add to the realism. Although, it is not always a clear cut rule, a look at my roster, and I think that it is clear that there are players that are meant to be underclassmen at the bottom of the bench. But at the same time, there are also within normal High School teams where there needs to be a select amount of underclassmen that have higher skill levels that get them in starting lineups, key roles, or just in to rotational roles. If not, a roster full of 19 year old players doesn't bother me that much.

Big Update: The biggest stage of this roster is completed. That being, all names, heights and weights, general ratings, contracts, free agent influences, and team rotation minutes; for all 120 plus teams. I am going to play some games with it, before considering how much tinkering needs to be done with tendencies, or the more in-depth rotations alterations. If anyone wants to pick up the ball on any of those aspects, the roster name is "High School by Kenny". Just let me know if you are going to do so, and keep in communication with me so that I can hold off on getting back to another stage until you have completed it, so that I don't start over with the roster being half way through a stage, preventing my progress reflecting further cooperation beyond that point. I do think that the progress will be very playable at this point, but I do have a complex about completion. Its just that I have put a lot of time in doing this much, well, plus a previous attempt as mentioned in the beginning of this thread, and have neglected actually playing games for about a month. So for at least a few days, to a week, I will focus on getting my game skills back up to par, unless someone does take over a portion, and then that break will be up to that progresses completion. So for now enjoy!

After playing a few games, I am struggling with keeping the NBA players that I have changed names for mainly due to occasionally, the announcer will call out the players old name, rather than the listed name. It isn't hard to overlook, but at the same time, it gives the game play a little more style and fluidity. So what do others think...worth the trade off, or not?

I don't even listen to announcers or broadcasters. It's not a big deal to me.

I figured out how to use the smaller gyms available in 2K18... messing around with some of them now. I will report back if I find something useful

Hoping you are coming up with something on the smaller gyms, that would really enhance the game experience. As far as the tendencies go, I think I am just going to leave them as is for the most part. At least it doesn't seem to be making a substantial difference in expected simulation stats and the game play seems fine for the most part. If I do any changing, it may be to remove some dunking tendencies, because that seems like within the game play, that just seems to be happening at a far greater rate than would in a normal High School game...but its mostly with players that are closer to 6 feet tall, and less athletic, that is if I even bother.

I did run a test with two teams in which I really tampered with tendencies and the game got really stale, and just editing those two teams, took literally an hour collectively. So that is just a time investment that I just do not seem to be worth the results in my opinion.

On a side note: Have you had the chance to find some designs that you want to use Rob? I have bookmarked some creators that have uploaded a lot of the top High School Prep/Academies...if it helps, I will write those down and post them on this thread for easier access.

I think eventually I will create a few additional schools for historical significance. One being Dunbar High School in Baltimore, Muggsy Bogues, Reggie Lewis, Reggie Williams, and David Wingate all on one High School team at the same time. I will have to look through some more to make sure that some others haven't been added since the last time I looked.

TG actually made his files downloadable for the smaller gyms and he even added crowds. There isnt many we can use, I really would like to use the orlando summer league gym. I just need to figure out how to remove this one texture thats on the wall lol. Im trying to strip the gyms down of all nba logos and whatnot. Its 2 textures just gotta figure out how to get rid of one of them. I'll probably look at some designs later.

Update: I was able to edit a few courts to remove a few NBA/2K logos. I would like to get the courts as bare as possible. Still working on this one texture on the orlando court. I think it has to do with the compression or something. With the roster we could probably make a pretty dope mod.

Here is a few pics

Remove the NBA 2K logos from the wall banners

Removed the Gatorade logos from the wall and on some of the cushion

Heres the orlando court, still working on the on texture on the wall. I know the texture name (at least I think) but its size is 0 in the archive and if I replace it court turns black.

Image

Change the baskets to use the Pro Am baskets since they look like highschool rims. Wish I could edit the backboard to make the glass have the square

Those are good, I don't play anything but My league, so I had no clue those were even in the game. Certainly would not have the first clue how to make them accessible or alter arenas at all. So I think this is pretty incredible, I really like the gyms with the baskets coming from the rafters rather than on the floor. So good luck!

I love this thread because there is so much communication going on here. Kenny and Rob great work!

Sorry I can't help more right now. I'm pushing to test my modding knowledge in other areas.
Currently trying to convert gyms and arenas from 2K16 and 2K17 so that we can have a few more courts if possible.
Keep up the good work here.

Heres the orlando court, still working on the on texture on the wall. I know the texture name (at least I think) but its size is 0 in the archive and if I replace it court turns black.

Change the baskets to use the Pro Am baskets since they look like highschool rims. Wish I could edit the backboard to make the glass have the square

I have created a cover art for High School, well at least for Indiana High School. I am not sure if it is possible to change the intro to the game, but I have seen other people sharing similar art in the uploader, and I have been updating my art work using Gimp, and wanted to see if I could pull it off. Here is what I have. Not sure how to upload it correctly to display on this site

Update: It looks like the Pro Am arena may the best arena for this mode although I do like the 2k15 practice gym.

I removed the NBA logo in between the no slip pads and changed the no slip pads to all black. I don't think there are many logos on this arena. Ill try to make a logo for the high school mod and see about placing it in the arena tomorrow.

Cool, I like the smaller gyms pics you had posted earlier, and also the ones on TG's thread for All in one rosters. They definitely help with the atmosphere of the game. But at the same time, I live in a town that has a gym that fits about 5100 people in it (approximately half the towns population, and in general the only gyms that my hometown team plays in that are bigger are for Sectionals in New Castle Field House which holds about 7000, and Southport which is only slightly bigger than ours for Regionals. So I am sort of used to more of a college atmosphere for High School basketball. I am sure that there are plenty of gyms that are similar to those really tiny gyms in Indiana, but I do believe we have about the 16th largest gym in the state, and most gyms are holding about 3000 or more. So this last one is more like the ones I would expect. But I am a big time fan of the basketball goals coming from the rafters.

Kenny how many Indiana high school teams would you want to include if we made it a full mod? Is there enough for a 30 team myleague team and would you have all the artwork for the teams?

Rob, I am not sure how much trouble it would be on your end to both, but if it is too much trouble, lets not worry about the Indiana side...instead I can consolidate the rosters to increase the skills for both starters and bench and just make it 30 teams for the top prep schools. As far as art work goes, yes I have more than enough Indiana schools to do 30 teams 3 times...the prep schools, I would just need to do some searching and a bit of additional research to make sure I can find the top 30 teams (either this year, or traditionally, either is fine with me). But I can get that all figured out by the end of the night, I would say. I have booked marked several uploaders already that have uploaded many of them, and if I have to make a few to get to 30, its not going to be too difficult.

Rob, just looked into bookmarks and did some research, so far I have located 26 of the top Prep/Academy schools. I have 3, that I definitely think I will make, but am trying to decide if I just want to select a non academy/prep school that may have a top 10 player on it, or just select the next best team. Going to look into some more, and start getting the art work together for the three I know. And if it we are going to do both, I already have a list of 30 Indiana schools ready to go that I developed earlier in the week.

yea it doesn't matter to me. I'll probably just take your roster and end up doing a mylegaue with 30 Highschool teams with all fictional players anyway. Here's a template for some cover art (need Photoshop to edit), I know you started one though.

Thanks for that...I am not sure if there is anyone who has been working on future draft classes past 2018, but if you can find one, we could use it for the prep schools to at least put a star player on a teams or several for some. I certainly cannot even come close to the realism that I have seen posted for the 2018 draft faces of some of these other creators on this site. If no one has progressed that far, I will begin to make some player edits of far less accuracy sooner than later. Also, before you take the roster to use, allow me to spend some time trying to consolidate that High School by Kenny roster to get some additional depth that those prep teams would provide (unless in your process it would be simpler to just do a MyLeague with a fantasy draft which would essentially do the same thing much faster). I had some Indiana players already created before starting the new rosters(currently in the free agent list)...which makes a big difference to me knowing that there is a little more realism within it. I have gotten all the art work to make the last teams for 30 prep schools. I think I am going to turn on my PS4 and delete some of my Indiana school designs that I have fixed or added to recently and saved on my PC profile to consolidate the prep schools into one single profile. That profile name is Kenny4118. Probably will be doing that late tonight...so hopefully all the team art will be ready in that profile tomorrow, or whenever you are ready.

Small edit: I started moving designs around, but found they were getting messed up upon trying to upload into free space. So instead...I will just make a list of which designs I selected by giving you the school name to search by, probably gets fewer results than mascot name, and which uploader tag seems to be the best for each one.

Update: I was able to finally remove the one texture in the orlando practice gym. I had to completely remove the wall cushion color.

I'm still trying to get these arenas as bare bones as possible. Im pretty sure I can remove the padding for the gatorade gym as well.

Here is the orlando practice arena with white padding

Good deal, I am going to go ahead and raise the ratings and heights and weights of the 30 NBA teams to more resemble the talent loaded teams these prep schools. I will edit the roster name to H.S. Prep/Academy Roster, to differentiate it from the others. Should be done late tonight or mid afternoon tomorrow.

Update: I got through it tonight, may start actually looking up rosters on MaxPrep to make them somewhat more accurate. That will probably take a while, but it should prevent any other work being done because I will just edit my offline version until completion. Also, when your ready to start assigning High Schools to teams, to make it work out, I am going in the same order of replacement that I shared earlier in the thread. EX. 1. 76ers will represent Montverde, 2. Bucks will be Findley Prep and so on.

Cool I did some more work on the arenas, turns out the 2K17 High school arena crowd file works in the pro am arena for 2k18. This way the crowd isnt super full representing more of a high school. Maybe we could have teams with the full crowd (bigger schools) and teams with less people. Im looking at the HS arena in 2k17 trying to understand it to see if it can be converted over. I have no idea what Im looking at lol.

Pictures (crowd is a little glitchy but it works)

I actually think it works well for these Prep school teams. From the ones I created, just getting some pictures off google didn't seem like they spend much money to renovate their home gyms. I assume that the cost of travel is too large of a part of their budget because traveling across states for competitive games and big tournaments. There may be some exceptions, but the pics in to find home floor details, made me think they are basically just practice floors. How many different gyms do you think are going to be available?

Right now it looks like 4 different gyms work pretty good. 2 of these don't have built in crowds so when we add the crowd in it may look a little glitchy but it works. I ran into a snag when downloading all the team art. 2K18 has a weird glitch where your save will get corrupted when updating your arena. I got up to 20 teams and lost my save. I would hate for that to happen in the middle of a season.

Let me look into if some of these schools have larger arenas, maybe just putting the smaller gyms on the right 20 will be an easier work around to fix this issue. I will look into a bit more and get back to you on it.

Well, no luck finding gyms that are big enough to be accurate with larger arenas. New Albany is the biggest I could get a number on, and its 4200, which is 1000 more than Mater Dei who was by far the next largest. To place that in perspective against Indiana High School gyms, New Albany is the 55th largest gym in Indiana and there are 122 gyms larger in Indiana than Mater Dei's.

Hopefully, you can find a fix, or we will just have to live with the 20 limit.

I lost my save while downloading designs so its possible to get through all the teams and give each of em different arenas. Its a weird 2k bug from 2 years ago. You will be editing a team and itll just crap out. We should get all 30.

Ok, when do you think we can get it all put together and make it downloadable? No huge rush, I have two MyLeagues going, one Indiana schools only with mostly fictional rosters, and now one prep going with mostly fictional rosters as well. So I am content, and can wait until you get your end up to the level your comfortable with releasing. I do need to make one edit to the Archbishop Wood Uniforms, slight over sight, forgot to add the short logos to the sides of the road and third uniforms. But that just means I need to reupload, and place them. It will only be about 5 minutes when I log in tomorrow morning.

I can work on changing over rosters from fictional to as accurate as I can before or after, but it will take a while, and I would prefer to just do it on my own time, and release it after completion. Then if someone wants to really make some of the known players more realistic or improve further on it from there, hopefully they at least share that they have made some upgrades to the roster.

I'm working on a little preview video. I think before we release we just need to make sure all the courts and jerseys look good. We could also make some universal dornas as well. Im also tryna to see if someone can make us a wilson basketball mod too. I look into those tomorrow.
