Cool [mod] X-CVE {DB-05/15/16|PD-v01}

X-CVE Database 05/03/17
X-CVE Pictures Version 2
*Use Version WinRAR 5.0+ to unpack the picture database

-Character Renders in PNG Format Here-

This is the most recent default database for WMMA4, combined and tweaked with CVE, O+, Eyeball Pack, Weidtverse, CFS, & many others. All duplicate renders are removed and all fighters have unique renders. Many late fighters have there debut time moved earlier to be anywhere between 2001 to 2010.

I advise that you use this mod as a base mod. You should be extremely strict when importing into this mod as I've most likely added it within reason.

Detailed Description Incoming...

What's Left:
-About 40 Male fighters need unique renders
-Clean up free renders
-Clean up and add female free renders
-Clean up Agers
-Clean up Belts
-60 Fighter have no Bio at all
-30 Random Companies have no Bio at all
-Clean up Fighters with too many Attributes
-Unique Character Count is at 2912! The next 100 unique characters will debut after 2001 in areas where there just isn't much action yet in places like Africa & Australia. Let's hit 3000 before WMMA5!

Future Changes:
-More Achievements
-Add belt images
-TV only broadcasters need new opening and closing dates
-Add bio for eras
-Add more narratives

Thanks for sharing this! My only gripe seems to be that you've added elite tier (95+ stats which should be superrare) women that already debut before the start of the game. Why? They will just own the existing official C-verse stars. Their profiles look like they've been generated by the game itself, which seems hardly fitting for an elite fighter (I tolerate them for cans). That was also my only gripe against Asaemon's changes in the original CVE: He added a couple of elite men who just beat up the cream of the C-verse crop (at least in my games). It seems... unnecessary.

I took great cares not to edit the default setup and had them debut at the start, but with reduced stats. That being said: many will enjoy it as it's a fresh take. I'm not criticising, just voicing my dislike for it. But I can always just move them back myself.

Seems like you added a custom name here and there... Frickin' 70K names? Really?

I'd also advise to change or even delete the narratives for WEFF. They are scheduled to change to 5x5 main events (non-title), but have a default 7x3 title fights, which seems a little off.

Good god it takes long to sim a year. I like the idea of WEFF having the child companies. They produce about 3 events a year which seems realistic.

edit:
- The database also seems to suffer from the earlier "attribute bloat" issue. Sarah Vaughan, for instance, has a background in judo and muay thai.
- There's a woman named Manolita that has a background in boxing but the profile says judo, and she doesn't have a profile. She's ranked nr 11 P4P but comes in at 0-0.

Thank you for replying, if you make any changes to the database upload it for me and I'll make it the new version. I didn't change the stats around too much personally but I try to give fighters strengths and weaknesses. Then I would test them in the fight picker. For everything else I wanted fighters to train with there teams but I'll make sure that current C-Verse champions have a good running.

As for attribute bloat I didn't know that was a thing, my loading times are OK. What I will admit is that I carefully imported CVE characters so that is probably why your seeing similar changes as in Asaemon's version.

Yeah I added custom names here and there, the 70,000K names are necessary if you truly want to see real names in local fights based in that area.

Yeah the Narratives aren't fully fleshed out just yet. I'm glad you looked at some of the ones I added. I'll adjust the WEFF Narrative if you decide not to up any changes of the DB.

WEFF having the 3 child companies is quite awesome I agree, I'm glad to see many of the females you added tally up there match numbers. I was thinking I should limit there popularity level but so far I haven't played over 4 years to see too much of a climb.

I'll fix any attribute errors you find, feel free to add profiles and send them to me. There a quite a few people that still do not have any profile info at all.

EDIT:
-UPDATE 1
I updated the DB again, I'll be making periodic changes and minor updates like this without warning (or notes) a lot on my free time. None of my minor changes are really worth starting a new game over. I want this to be a base mod that people can change how they want.
-UPDATE 2
I replaced the WEFF 1 - 3 narratives with 4 new ones, updated the flavor text and headlines. I made all 3 of WEFF's child organizations different from each other in rule set with appropriate bio. This should allow the 3 smaller companies to stand on there own and have there own appeal. I decided to split AWFC into 3 weight Classes instead of a singular roster. LVFF is based on Las Vegas show entertainment and like wise set to saturate with a singular maxed out roster. Let me know what you think of the changes.
-UPDATE 3
Made adjustments for starting wealth for companies with no roster. A few characters had there name value adjusted.

Very interesting. I was starting to do the same thing, but now I don't have to!

I did notice that the free pictures for women are not in the pack (any file that started with "f_")

Edit - Nevermind, I just noticed your note about it in your to do list. Sorry about that.

The default free pictures for women have all been assigned by the mod, so it's pointless to add them.

When I download these files my winrar says the file is either unknown or damaged. Can anyone currently download and use these files? If someone has the files and will upload them I would be greatly appreciative.

You need to update your version of WinRar to 5.x+ It uses the new rar format.

Later this year I'm going to redo this mod from the ground up. Sorry my images disappeared, you can find the on my deviant art page in the meantime.

I will also remake all my renders in iray if I find it worthwhile to do. My objective is to try and do a render/character a day I just been needing to build a much faster PC.

If there's a WMMA5 in the making I'll also be willing to convert everything to Iray. In fact, most of them have been done already. They just need to be 'gif'fed. I won't be changing the stats as my testing revealed it's quite balanced as is and no fb indicating the opposite has been received.

Anyhow: great that you're working on it some more.

I just uploaded the new Database and Pictures. The new pictures database will take a little while luckily I made sure to delete the Thumbnails DB which would of added a extra 100 MB to an already 462 MB file. I wanted to add it as a patch but I made a lot of fixes removed more duplicates, old images, and added a lot more logos for teams.

Sorry I forgot to upload the new links. Ill do that now.

EDIT:
OK they should work. I do belive that I may have to make a new database and import the old one. There may be some errors from the old engine bugs that carried over after patching. I had a crash when clicking the achievements button for one of my new characters. So I may go thru everything in the database and sort things out this time starting with a fresh database then importing which might be a lot cleaner instead of starting with the latest default database.

A little while back you said you were going to update the mod when you got your computer fixed. What exactly were you going to add? I feel like the only thing missing is a few renders that haven't been put in the mod yet. I don't feel like there is a much to change. The reason why I am bringing this up was that I wanted to edit the mod to start the game at the beginning of ALPHA1/GAMMA and was wondering what changes you planned on making so I could make those changes myself into my game. If you don't mind would you mind me posting my mod in this thread when I am done?
