The Bubble Mod 3.0.6 (Added Utah Jazz)

Postby natkra90 on Sun Jul 19, 2020 2:50 pm

Hello all,
This mod includes the custom bubble floor/arena created by myself (except baskets), and edited broadcast packages for the season and playoffs.

I've gotten all but two of the walls acting as dornas. The other two are dynamic and can be assigned to the home team as well. I have instructions on where to locate the textures here:
viewtopic.php?f=258&t=110252&p=2017915#p2017915

The following teams have their own arena graphics:
Bucks, Celtics, Clippers, Heat, Jazz, Lakers, Nuggets, Pelicans and Raptors

Download 3.0.6 Standalone [920 MB]: (If you don't have version 3, only download this)
https://www.mediafire.com/file/vp1amtt9 ... od.7z/file


Patch from 3.0.2c to 3.0.6 [49 MB]: (You only need this if you have 3.0.2c.)
https://www.mediafire.com/file/6b7nrqdf ... ch.7z/file

Patch from 3 to 3.0.2c: [70MB] (If you have anything between version 3 and 3.0.2b, you can download this patch in stead of redownloading everything.)
https://www.mediafire.com/file/eymu0464 ... ch.7z/file

Download 1.0.6 Lower Quality (Some PC's can't handle the entire stadium acting as a massive dorna box, so the lower quality will stay at 1.0.6)
https://www.mediafire.com/file/0m70gump ... 29.7z/file

Compatible with the default roster.

Cross-compatible with All-In-One Retro Mod. Just copy to your game folder.

Here is the template for the court if you want to customize it:

Made sidelines on court thicker to match the new change.
Created dornas/walls for the following teams:
Bucks, Celtics, Clippers, Lakers, and Raptors

2.0:
Made everything dornas. Now textures can change throughout the game for the walls and all the dornas with the exception of two walls that need to be transparent for the cameras.

Changed the stadium to look like what was revealed Tuesday.

1.0.3:
Added new court

1.0.2:
Added Dornas from last year's Playoff game footage.
Added Instructions with how to use parts of the mod if you'd like as well. (If you only want the broadcast packages for example)

1.0.1:
Fixed arrows pointing at who to guard. They were blinking rapidly.

Installation: Copy everything in game folder to your NBA 2K20 game folder. Don't rename anything unless you don't want it to show up. 2K_Hook will direct the files how they are named. You only need to use the launcher when you want to change mods. It will remember your last selection.

This is amazing! :crazyeyes:

For your first attempt at a stadium in blender, it came out really nice. Do you have any plans on touching up some of the retro arenas to make them look a little more accurate/not so generic?

Thanks man. I would like to, but I can't get blender to render more than 5 or 6 out of the 40 or 50 models on most arenas. So, I'm too limited to do anything. I have put stadium ads in the All-In-One and johnwest improved the lighting because that's something we can do, but unless someone knows how to render all the 3d models, they are what they are unfortunately.

what do you mean they don't render? like inside blender you can't see them? or like when you try to put a bunch of models into one stadium file you can only get some to work?

did you check to see how far back the view of the whole scene is getting clipped at ? I hope that is what you mean

great job for the beginnings of messing around with blender stuff it takes a while to get acclimated to the controls and what you can do with them

They won't export. I can get them to show up in blender and can make changes, but I get an error when I go to export the stadium and usually only around 10% of the models actually get rendered out. It's consistent depending on the stadium. Had to go through probably 20 stadiums to find this one that I could edit to make this mod.

Here's what the error looks like:

Thanks for the compliment. Means a lot coming from you. Your Summer League Mod is flawless.

Using blender with 2k stadiums is like walking on eggshells :lol:

I have 58 revisions that I kept a record of. A couple of times I had to go back and throw away hours of work. There's so much you can't do or it freaks out. Don't know if I'm going to do this again. Not that I regret this project, but there were definitely more headaches than expected.

A few things you may already know, but I learned through this experience.

1. Don't render/export in edit mode. Doesn't work. Need to be in object mode. It will act like it's exporting, but it never shows in game.
2. Don't Alt+Scroll. That screws it up somehow too. Hard not to do with all the shortcuts especially on a laptop like me.
3. Don't try adding anything. Even one node, and it won't render properly. Have to work with only the assets within the stadium. I ended up using a window texture, and blowing it up to get all my transparent textures (was the only one available). The Playoff Wall is actually a circuit breaker. :lol:
4. Make sure nothing overlapses. This is probably the hardest part in blender. Don't know if I accomplished this or not.
5. Make backups of every step. Don't do more than one or two edits before checking in game. The moment I assumed it was good was the moment I lost hours of work.
6. Manual lighting texture mapping is a HUGE pain. Especially after getting through all these hurdles. I finally figured out a method to get rid of shadows that don't belong. Would have to create a video tutorial to explain how, but it involves using masks and gradients. 20% transparency seems to be optimal.

yeah that sounds like a pain in the ass lol regardless it came out amazing and it could be a base to different type of arenas. Which version of blender did you end up using?

Looks great ! If downloaded, does it overwrite current courts and can all the playoff teams use this bubble court? Also, can I switch between the bubble court and the regular ones?

Thank you!

The only thing it overwrites is your config file in your Hook folder.

All courts and stadiums on the current teams are redirected to use the bubble court and arena.

You can change the config to have certain teams play in their own arena if you'd like. Or if you want to do away with the Bubble altogether, just rename or erase "S HP Field Arena.iff" and "ESPN Court.iff" in the waigua folder.

The arena floor is one big court, so other courts are not directly compatible because they would be scaled up. You can however convert courts by using the court_season.dds file inside the ESPN Court.iff as a template if you're into that.

I also have the photoshop template if anyone wants it.

Edit: On 2nd thought, other courts might work because it's scaled in the court file not the stadium file. I'll have to give that a try.
