Hey, Dzumeister and niuus. Thanks for the feedback!
Since these Jam TE
hacks take quite a bit of time for me to get the portraits and roster updates going (I'm about 125 hours in on this project so far), I had set an internal “bet” with myself that if 2K20 TE
got enough love such that there were at least 5,000 downloads between issuance and end of the season, I’d consider working on a 2K21 TE
Between here and the NLSC Forum, the darn game hit around 8,000 grabs, so a big thanks to the community for supporting it!
In any event, having seen the trend, I decided a couple months ago to quietly put something small together for a 2K21
release. I was projecting to issue by Christmas but am waiting to see how the free agency period shakes out. Primarily, the game will be a roster update and quite a few portrait replacements, but – with a bit more mentoring this go-around from heavy hitters like phonymike
- I’ve got a few more features in this year’s game to definitely make it worth a look. You hit on one of them... the ability to save secret player records.
The game will also have nods to various current events (including a nod to Kobe similar to Anthony Davis' one in the Finals), plus some shilling on my part with respect to some of my other projects. Here's a few more screens to keep folks interested:
I don't have plans to add any female players this go-around (admittedly, I haven't added any since my first Double Z Mod
). Would totally be up for adding a heavy hitter like Elena Della Donne, but I don't think the limited body sprites and head options do the WNBA players much justice. Plus, I'm not much of an artist, so a head sprite would likely come out pretty atrocious.
Thanks as well for the boxart -- Don't forget to add a "TE" to the image!
