Features:

- All players have custom fictional cyberfaces made by me. Beards & arm tattoos often included!
- I'll do my best to get rid of nonsensical accessories (e.g. straps over leg sleeves)
- All player attributes will be based on real players' DNA, with some tweaks to make them unique. This means everyone will have sensible tendencies, rather than a completely random nonsensical mess that doesn't match with their attributes.
- There will be busts - players that peak early, ball hawks with good individual stats but bad team play. It's up to you to identify them and avoid them.
- There will be valuable role players to be found in the 2nd round of the draft.

How to install:

1) If you don't have it yet, install the NBA 2K21 Hook with External File feature:
https://forums.nba-live.com/viewtopic.php?f=267&t=110618

2) Download the cyberface pack (download link at the bottom of this post) and extract it to .../NBA 2K21/Mods/

3) Search for my draft class in-game either by username (Jeek313) OR by filename (Fictional With Faces Yr1)

Any feedback is appreciated, whether it's on player appearance or attributes/tendencies. Let me know if you feel like the draft class is over-saturated with talent/potential. I'd also love to hear who are your favourite players from the draft class! (Y)

Years 2-3 coming soon!

Note: If you're a content creator and want to ensure that your draft classes are compatible with mine, my custom cyberface IDs will be in the 17300-17600 range. If anybody is dead set on using that range, please contact me, I'm willing to consider moving my faces to a different range.

Do you plan on converting the headshapes?
They will not be able to be used directly from 2K19 without conversion

Edit: My bad, in my OP I said I was making the faces in 2K19 when I meant 2K20. :facepalm2: Sorry about that! :mrgreen:

Are you sure about that / have you already checked? I know it's been like that in previous years, but I believe that's because 2K went back and re-analyzed all of their raw head scans for extra detail. I doubt they did that this year for last-gen, when they had their hands full with the new version, so I'd say there's a good chance the format on PC will be the same as 2K20. Guess I'll find out later today after work (Y)

Either way I have a backup solution.

I'm working on a tool for exporting cyberfaces using the mix-and-match method. For each of the cyberfaces I've made, I've saved what I like to call a "Recipe" (the Recipe is a list of CFIDs that the face is made of - the source of the head shape, of the skin, of the hair, of the beard and of the tattoo). My tool can fetch the referenced cyberfaces directly from the game files, assemble the mixed cyberface and export it to the waigua folder. So as long as the cyberfaces whose models & textures I used are still in the game, I should be able to re-export them in 2K21 format.

I'd like to release the tool to the public as soon as I ensure it works with 2K21. :wink:

Small update: After having some trouble with a dying HDD, I'm back on track now.

2K21 has been having a rough start: 2K servers don't let us download draft classes, and MyLeague probably won't be worth playing until free agency is over, due to inaccurate rosters.

As far as I know, there is no tool as of yet for assigning cyberface ID (such as limnono trainer), but I'm sure it's coming soon.

In the meantime, here are some new faces:

Update: I've got over 50 fictional cyberfaces in 2K21 now. Here are 9 new examples:

Here's a couple new screenshots of PG Randy Hardy in action. That dude LOVES to smile. He can throw it down, too, though.
