JEDL's FDC 2K18 with Custom Cyberfaces (CF ID changes and Compatible DC)

Postby JEDL on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:45 pm

EDIT: Announcement to those who already downloaded the custom CFs prior to Jan 10, 2018: http://forums.nba-live.com/viewtopic.ph ... 4#p1917870
EDIT(2): Note that there is a new CF compilation for each draft class with the CF ID changed. This is to prevent the draft classes from conflicting with my retro roster: viewtopic.php?f=236&t=104174&start=50#p1941007

Image


So the purpose of this project is to create a realistic draft class which should blend with any roster. This project was made in response to some of the clickbait, low effort and retarded monstrosities found 2K Share.

Here are the fundamental issues a lot of them present:

Image

Overpowered prospects.
They are both problematic in some draft classes and in the 2K generated ones. Its either they didn't bother correcting the CPU's auto generated rookies or they simply just wanted to "put themselves" into the game.

Image

Unedited signature moves which do not match up with attributes or playstyles.
You'll see big men dish out fancy dribble moves like Kemba Walker despite having low ball control. Not necessarily game-breaking but this breaks the sense of reality in this game.

Image

The "LOL RANDOM" accessories.
No explanation needed for this one.

Image

Tendencies.
Just look at those numbers. They may not mean much to you or to the normal casual gamer like most users but this is just lazy.

So there you go, now that I've enlightened you I hope that you will stay away from those draft classes. I really wish 2K will implement a rating or a better filter system for 2K Share in the future.

On these draft classes:

Update: :new:

  • Finished adding cyberfaces, editing faces, names, accessories, body proportions and ratings for 45 players.
  • Currently working on badges.
  • Only added 18 cyberfaces since the default CAP models don't look too bad and the fact that some cyberfaces from last year have been erased. I've based some players on people I know and they look a lot better with CAP.
  • Hopefully I can finish signatures and hot zones tomorrow
  • Uploaded update to 2K Share

I don't have a whole lot to add at the moment, but wanted to pop in and thank you for making these again this year. They add to my enjoyment of the game immensely.

Well, I edited and altered the ones without a cyberface individually to make them believable and not look like a bunch of weirdos. I can't edit actual cyberfaces myself (I wish I could though).

Postby JEDL on Wed Oct 04, 2017 11:26 pm

Major Update: :new:

  • For Year 1 I re-edited Shot Close, Contested Mid & 3PT Shots, Acceleration, Speed, Crash tendency, and the Drive tendencies set while making sure the ratings and player identity stay intact.
  • Added 2 cyberfaces for Year 1.
  • Finished and uploaded Year 2 to 2K Share. The only thing left for Year 2 are the Hot Zone edits.
  • Will work on the scouting report next.
  • This draft class will now have more players with unique playstyles compared to Year 1.
  • However I also made this draft class to have slightly more injury prone players so draft wisely.

This looks good! Looking forward to using these guys in my own MyLeague. One question, do you use some kind of roster editor to edit your draft class? You seem to make quick work of them.

Thanks man! And nah dude I just used the quick edit feature a lot, just pure hustle. It was pretty grueling, frustrating and draining since it took a lot of my spare time and the fact that the quick edit doesn't include Reaction Time and Contact Dunk and the Left Foot Durability is bugged for me hehe.

I wish I could but I don't know how. Although I would prefer if it was downloaded on 2K Share so my draft class can get that exposure.

I think you can find the draft class in the "remote" folder and it should be named like "DraftClass"

Custom CF progress:

I've gotten the hang of adding, removing and switching hairstyles and beards. Will try to experiment with changing textures and editing 3D models.

Can't find it. I found the one for 2K17 but even that didn't have any draft classes or rosters.

Postby JEDL on Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:24 pm

Major Update: :new:

  • Reduced ages for both Year 1 and 2.
  • Edited and updated accessory colors for Year 1 to match default roster (will edit Year 2 soon).
  • Edited eye colors.
  • Currently working on Year 3 slowly.

I also managed to finally make a custom cyberface and I'm quite happy with the result. I replaced the hair and textures from png5272.iff with Ricky Rubio's hair and textures.

The draft classes look great. I just have one comment on some of them. Some of the players' peak end are set to late (e.g. 34, 35). I read over at OS that typically players regress after the ages 28-30 on average. Of course, we have outliers like LeBron, CP, Korver. But I think that is the average. Also, you can fool CPU teams into drafting busts by adjusting their peak starts at around 20-21 yrs old and setting up their potential to 90+. CPUs draft according to a player's potential but they don't know when a player will peak. So, they would be able to draft busts that have 90 potential, rated 75 but their rating will peak at around 78.

Thanks for the input man I really appreciate it! I'll definitely readjust the peak end with a few outliers (like the players you mentioned) once I finish with my university exams here :D
