Oz70NYC's Showcase 2K17

Recommended Posts

It's TIME!!! Another year, another game, another season. There's some things about this year's CAW mode I'm not a huge fan of, but great creators find a way to work around limitations. So without further delay, I present my 1st completed creation for 2K17.

 

"The Archetype" Dru Mercer

 

From: Cleveland, OH

Weight Class: Super Heavyweight

Debut: 1999 (Wrestlemania 2000)

Theme: "Thick As Thieves" by Dry Kill Logic

Signature Move: The Tragedy (Emerald Fusion)

Finishing Move: Burning Hammer

Curious as to what you don't like about this years creation suite. I had a play around a few times and while it appears confusing at first due to how extensive it is, it ultimately helps to improve the CAWs you make.


Having said hat, your CAW looks great and I love the shirt. Can't wait to see more.

Well to start there's the thing about using custom logos on the arms...and the fact that they can only be moved as far down as the bicep. However, my brother Thr33x found a work around that he's going to post on his Youtube channel shortly...so that obstacle has been hurdled. Then there's not being able to morph the body shapes. REALLY not a fan of that. Having to choose from preset limbs is stupid. But what can you do? Just gotta roll with it. But I will be making a post on the official forum (or joining in on one as I know someone's likely made it...or several) voicing my dismay on it.

Do you think though, by having the presets, it makes it easier for those who are inexperienced creating CAWs to make them more unique? I know that if this was my first wrestling game, I would prefer to have presets as I wouldn't have a clue on how to download textures etc.

For someone starting out, yes...it does make things easier and more accessible. For someone like me though, who has been making CAWs since 1999, and also who has 9 years experience with 3D modeling and texture mapping, it's a huge step backwards. I like to building individual frames for my character that are unique. This year I have to splice together body types that will have no new uniqueness to them. It's a personal gripe. Not game breaking...but I'm definitely not a fan of it.

Absolutely loving that you're back on day 1. Can't wait for Mr Adams for my Universe :)

Download limits have pretty much slowed my creative progress...lol. Uploaded some face textures, and the assets to make Dru and Blake Evans before I used all 20 downloads. So I can't make anyone else for a few hours.

Aaahhhh okay then, I understand where you're coming from now. I couldn't quite figure out textures in 2k16 so having presets helps me out. I think more so than anything it comes down to preference.

I think I'm starting to hit my stride. Initially I wasn't a fan of how the morphing works, but it's starting to grow on me. I like how they both look a lot leaner compared to how monstrous Dru's body is. I'd love to pump out more, but the way the download counter works this year is slowing the process. anyway. gimme some downloads, folks. The more I get, the closer I get to Diamond status...and can create and upload even more. and there's going to be a LOT more this year then in 2016.

No rush, I've barely started my Universe anyway!

Those tats on Evans are amazing. I wish I had the patience for that type of texture work. I still miss the PT for my tattoos. Jones is looking good too, I'm loving all the additional dread hair types they added this year.

Jidenna reference makes me happy.

 

Great CAWS as usual, I gotta say though overall this is the best creation suite we've had in years. I was just going to post my first WIP/feelings on the new and improved suite being absolutely fantastic. Besides the limbs, what issues are you running into? There's tons of parts, everything loads quickly now...you can really make amazing, detailed, unique guys (and ladies) this year.

How are you doing the tattoos on Blake? On the guy I create every year, I usually used a mix of Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt's tattoos, but they've removed them all this year!

 

I'd like to put some on his arms but when I did it last year, it came out looking like crap. Any tips would help!

Check out my brother TheMightyThr33x's thread. He's got a tut on how to stretch out logos on the arms.

 

I'd post an update on my latest creations, but the logo upload site hasn't been working at all. It keeps telling me new codes are invalid or expired. Another year of 2K glitches for everyone...
