Bro you've asked him like 3 times to release individual faces and every time someone tells you he's not going to do that. Why keep asking?
Several others doing the same thing, asking for release dates and half-done projects when he keeps saying he will not release it like that.
You're getting the content free just be patient. He doesn't have to do anything at all. Then we'd be out of a good DC. God idk how modders put up with this :roll:


Dope draft class bro, looking forward to release.

yes I understand too, but we arrive at the end of the season.
It is better to release a project, even if it is necessary to update regularly to keep the community concerned.
The on each preview, we can see that no one answers. 2k20 will arrive very quickly and everyone will move on.
To free it, on a project of this quality I am willing to pay to support their work as far as possible personally.
sorry for my English
Once again excellent Louis King work :applaud: :applaud: :crazyeyes: :crazyeyes:

You must be new because I do this every year. The timeline is such that those playing on 2k19 through 2k20 release will have options. The college and pro seasons just got over. Plus there’s like 4 months before 2k20. This is a lot of work to do for more or less one guy.

dude, you're telling someone who has been doing this each year what's "better". Why would he take your word for it lol
i wish bluejay makes his draft class in february next time but makes everyone who wants it pay for it too. Then people would be whining about that. Just let the man release it when he wants, he is bringing 2k19.5 for all nba sim enthusiast for essentially nothing

Thanks for all the support guys. Yeah it essentially boils down to one guy making 45+ cyberfaces on top of being in law school and working full time. In fact, I normally lose money because I donate to guys to help relieve some of the burden of making all the faces myself, and their skills are better so the whole project improves. It’s a passion project but it’s just that, a “project”. I don’t do individual releases. This is the 2019 Draft Class and it’s going to be as close to complete as possible. If you go back and look at 2k18, there are still rosters being used that utilize the 2018 draft class that we did and extend the longevity of the game. That’s the goal here too. I apologize if it’s not ideal but it’s how it’s always played out.

Culver's hair could use some work. It's also clearly Delon Wright's face, Besides that these are amazing.

And Naz Reid is clearly Caleb Swanigan. And Carsen Edwards is clearly Markelle Fultz. And so on and so on. I mean Christ, I’ve got to use someone as a base, these faces aren’t just made from scratch. I appreciate critique but I need more to go off of other than “could use some work”.

Additionally, If it gets to where you can’t play because he looks like the base, you can always sub in a CAP face from YouTube. You don’t have to use the faces if they’re not good enough for your standards. I’ve said multiple times that I’m not a great cyberface texture creator.

Relax, Don't get so defensive. I can't tell Reid is Swanigan, I can't tell Edwards is Fultz, and even if I could- all of that is excusable. The main problem is the texture. Louis King for example, I'm pretty sure it's just unedited Devon Hall texture, Same with the Culver having the unedited Delon Wright face. I'm a beginner modder and much worse than you at pretty much everything but I shouldn't be able to tell that it's an unedited face.png instantly.

It’s the farthest thing from defensive. I have much better things to do than the draft class, it’s a side project. That being said, it was nothing more than a discussion. But next time don’t come in here critiquing hours of work with no detail. If it needs improvement, tell me. If it’s something I can do I’ll try, if not then people can fix it themselves when it’s released.

Naz Reid is an unedited Caleb Swanigan texture (face.ff) but apparently it’s undistinguishable due to model work (png.iff). If you’re a beginning modder, give texture work a try in making a face from scratch just to see unruly it can be. Plus there are very few high quality reference photos for these prospects. There’s a reason I avoid major texture work. If the unedited face is close enough, I’m not going to go in and ruin it just to tweak an eyelid.

Again, if it’s too jarring for people they can use a CAP for that player. When Delon Wright and Jarrett Culver stand next to each other in-game, they don’t look alike. Good enough for me and what I’m trying to accomplish.

Ultimately, I’m okay with my result:

All the faces will be released as a pack with the completed draft, if your new to blue jays projects they do take some time because it’s a very big scale project but trust me the wait is worth it

I appreciate this man! Glad to see you back on the forums!



Additionally, I took what was previously said about faces resembling other too much and have dabbled in texture work. Again, I'm very bad at textures but at least they are a bit different than the default faceXXXX.iff. I have a "rough draft" for the majority of first rounders and am working on cleaning them up and fleshing out the second round.

And don’t worry about the textures man, it’s not a user error it’s the fact that there is little to no texture reference for these prospects, like my deandre hunter is 100% Colin sexton, it’s just very hard to find good texture references for lesser known guys or guys that weren’t highly recruited out of highschool

Who else is making college prospects? I’m more than happy to have some assistance with the project. That Porter looks like all it needs is a body update!

I'm not sure who it is from either. I can't find it on NLSC, Moddingway, or the Chinese site and those are the major three I'm aware of.
