About This File

FULL COURTESY OF BLOOMINGTON of the Wolverine Studios Forums.


Here is a link to the original forum thread where the mod was created: http://www.wolverinestudios.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=250&t=26598



As per bloomington below.


The Draft Day Sports College Basketball 2017 FULL Mod contains all historical data for schools.


VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure you change the year in the initial setup screen FROM 2017 TO 2016. ALSO name the four post season tournaments 1) NCAA 2) NIT 3) CBI and 4) CIT 

- its important to do this so all historical data makes sense and there is no gap in stats. i will change the dating convention next edition of the game to correct this long standing issue.


Like the LIGHT mod, this mod contains all real schools, venues, logos and courts. However this mod is intended for those that want a more authentic NCAA experience. In addition to logos, courts and real schools, this mod has a full historical aspect as well. I have included standings since 2000 for all conferences, historical national award winners, past tournament champions for all conferences and tournaments. In addition, there are real hall of fame retired coaches which you can click on to bring up their season by season records to compare yourself with the greats! Like the out of the box game this includes the historical records for schools (again which are an out of the box feature and fit well with this mod). 


I went further this year by making all the pre and midseason tournaments real NCAA tournaments with a full history found in the almanac section BUT to enjoy this feature the end user has to do a little manual work by renaming the tournaments to match the historical data and real courts. 


So whats involved? If you go to the top of the screen in the game you will find the "options" button. Click it. When you do you will see Gary has given us more tournaments and even greater flexibility to name those tournaments as well (except for 2 locked courts due to coding restrictions). To integrate the real courts and the history, it only makes sense to name the courts to those tournaments which match the court and historical champions so I have prepared a list of the default tournament names and the real world tournament name you should change it to. All you have to do is change the name of the tournament and click publish. The end result will be that you will then have the name, appropriate court and matching historical info all aligned. Here is the list of the out of the box default tournaments, and the names they should be changed to....


1. Coaches Classic TO 2K Sports Classic

2. Preseason NIT TO (no need to change this one)

3. Hawaiian Shootout TO Maui Invitational

4. MS Midwest TO CBE Hall of Fame Classic (although this is locked you can at least know this is the tournament I used)

5. Alaskan Shootout TO Great Alaska Shootout

6. Sunshine Shootout TO Puerto Rico Tipoff

7. Las Vegas Winter Jam TO Las Vegas Invitational

8. JAG Holiday TO Coaches vs Cancer (also cannot change the name to this one)

9. Tipoff in Paradise TO Battle 4 Atlantis

10. Heroes Memorial TO Diamond Head Classic

11. Palmetto TO Barclays Center Classic

12. Golden State Classic TO Emerald Coast Classic

13. Caribbean Challenge TO Direct TV Wooden Legacy

14. Hoops for Troops TO Charleston Classic


Again just rename and click update for each tournament and the rest is taken care of no need to worry about clicking the logo and placing the court. The logic I used for choosing the tournaments was that they had to have an bracket elimination form of tournament not one of those conference vs conference deals..the game is not set up for that 


I have not finished updating all the courts and logos for the tournaments SO i stuck in a placeholder NCAA court for those that need to be done. I will get to them and have completed a couple already which I will post in a separate courts thread.


Any issues or problems just post em and I'll fix what I can otherwise enjoy and check the board regularly as I update courts and logos etc.
