Ultimate Retro Roster is BACK for 2k20! (Thunder Shaq)

Postby Thunder Shaq on Sun Sep 08, 2019 4:14 am

Hello everyone! I'm back again with my retro roster for the new year.

Image


I am in the very early stages of creating it (only a few players made so far), but I have been planning on this for a couple months now. The roster is back with some new teams this time around. I wanted a more retro feel this time so this roster will feature some new teams from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

I am starting this roster way sooner this year, which means it will be out sooner, but it also means I don't have the tools ready to get it going. I am still very much deciding on what teams I will be for sure including in the roster but I do have a tentative list shown below:

Image


Teams highlighted in GREEN are NEW teams that are confirmed for the roster. Teams in ORANGE are not yet confirmed for the roster, but may find themselves included. I am still trying to figure out which teams to create. I have a slot for extra teams to add to the roster in case we are able to utilize hidden teams again. Like I said, teams in orange are still in strong consideration for being added. I hope to have the official list in an upcoming update.

As you can see, I wanted to change it up a bit for this year and wanted to remove some teams like the 2015 Pelicans and Rockets to get an even greater RETRO feel. I'm still not 100% certain I am leaving in the 2015 Hawks, it all depends on the roster editing capabilities this year.

I wanted to get this announcement out there while it is still early in the process. Obviously, I don't have a timetable on this, but I am going to slowly start working on creating players for this and brainstorming which teams I will be including on the final release. Everyone is free to give suggestions on certain teams, but I will have the final say on what I put in lol.

I think this will be a great year for retro, please leave your thoughts in the thread and I will continuously be updating this with my progress. If anyone wants to help with courts again, I would be grateful, as I am not great with the creative side of modding. Shout out to sticky-fingers for his terrific work in 2k19! I will gladly work with you again lol.

NOTHING IS FINAL, I may move things around as I continue to plan.

Really love your roster for 2K19, well balanced, so happy to see your next project :D

With my new job, my schedule will be busier now, i dont think i could create all the missing courts for the teams you add.
But send me your list, I could have some stuff in the boxes that could help ;)

Suggestions ? Raptors 2018/19 :idea:

I’m in the same boat with a new job. I won’t have the same amount of time as I did a few months ago for the last roster. Mostly going to be evenings and weekends for me lol. Help as much or as little as you’re able to! I’ll strongly consider that Raptors team for their current slot. I won’t be rushing as much with this so take your time.

I've always used that Kenny Render for the 95 Rockets (as you know)

I believe if you swap in an appearance file from a player with his skin/body type, it will work.

It's been quite awhile since I messed with that.

No worries.

The appearance file is inside the players PNG.iff. Find someone with Kennys skin color, export both PNGs from 2K17 explorer, and swap the appearance file from that player into Kennys PNG.. Make sure the player has the same body type as Kenny as well.

Haven’t figured out the explorer tool yet, so no update on the Kenny Smith. I’m slowly creating players for the roster, but I don’t want to start working too much on the actual roster in case there are any major updates coming up with added legends

I spent much of yesterday going through cyber faces to find good lookalikes for players in my roster using the fictional faces they have in the files. Of course, the roster won’t really take off until I get a proper team editing table. For now, it’s mostly just creating missing players. Keep those suggestions and thoughts coming!

I’m probably not the best to ask, but it can probably be done when the roster editing tables get released

Never figured out the explorer tool. I’m hoping somebody fixes it for another roster and I’ll just take that one or something lol
