CROWD LIGHTING ARENAS PACK FROM 2K17 TO 2K18

Postby Sith on Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:27 pm

Made arenas pack with NBA 2K17 crowd lighting for NBA 2K18. All 30 teams.

Main discussion is here:
viewtopic.php?f=236&t=105180

Preview:

Installation:
1. Download the archive. Link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=11bsEH ... ldtnqsDfzc
2. Choose the team you need and unpack sxxx.rar.
3. Drag all files from sxxx.rar to your sxxx.iff (e.g from s029....rar to s029.iff) using 7zip with overwriting.

You can use it with your arenas/stadiums mods

!WARNING! Moving PostEffect.FXtweakables from 2k17 to 2k18 changes the stadium atmosphere color. If you need only increase crowd brightness use just "crowd.CrowdData". If the crowd is too bright add "crowd_lighting.FxTweakables" from the archive to stadium file also to achieve a darker crowd

Download link to set of "NBA 2K17 crowd.CrowdData + NBA 2K16 crowd_lighting.FxTweakables":

Thank you, Sith, for making this thread with the stadium files very well organized.

I did the same method.
However, if you change posteffect, floor color also changes.
If you want to darken crowd lighting only, you can also use 2K16 crowd_lighting.FxTweakables.


It would be nice if we could have the 2k16 crowd data in this thread as well. If somebody has quick access to the stadium files.

EDIT: Moving PostEffect.FXtweakables from 2k17 to 2k18 does change the court color. to achieve a darker crowd like MJ23LB, then you must take 2K16 crowd_lighting.FxTweakables and insert it into 2k18 stadium

if you look at the wizards pictures i posted, then the floor color does change. Floor changing color is not good. wizard pictures posted here: viewtopic.php?f=236&t=105180&sid=8b654bc787c9bfb7c556c4151f5c2553#p1925037 thank you MJ23LB for the information.

Well, i think it changes not only the court color, but makes the tone of the stadium. I'll try to make pack with only "2K17 crowd.CrowdData" + " 2K16 crowd_lighting.FXTweakebles". Stay tuned :)

Guys, I was able to get Uniter Center ceiling from the 2k17 file. It was just a matter of finding the right files, renaming, copy and paste. I'll try to make some tweaks at Arena.scne, because there's a little problem with the animated led dornas. I'm using Amaro Waade patches as a base!

This is the only glitch I had... In NBA 2k17, there's a scoreboard right there

Very nice work. I actually found that the lighting also improves my performance. I usually dont play with full crowd, but as I tried it now, it did not affect my performance.

Oh and for realism freaks, I checked out which teams have a "dark" crowd like the 2k original one: (from my youtube eye test)

- Lakers
- Nets
- Blazers
-Warriors
- Knicks
- Clippers
-Cavaliers

Drag all files from sxxx.rar to your sxxx.iff (e.g from s029....rar to s029.iff) using 7zip with overwriting.


I'm having a bit of trouble understanding this bit....
