Default FivePacks

In this thread I will post small booster packs of fighters for the C-Verse database to utilise any new renders and many of my older ones that were not included in the game either as free pictures or new characters.

Unfortunately, I don't have the patience to be able to make a big booster pack in the vain of Asaemon. Instead, I will be posting smaller packs of five fighters at a time, which will hopefully give me a chance to target them to weight classes and regions that are short on fighters. Some will also be obviously based on real fighters (below you will see a couple clearly inspired by Semmy Schilt and Akebono), so the smaller packs will allow people to pick and choose whether they want them in their game.

My initial plan is for these fighters to debut at various times throughout the game (or to be already active), but I am up for suggestions.

Looking forward to this as I'm finding my Super Heavy & Bantamweight divisions are definitely in need of some new characters

I thought about it after and immediately regretted not doing it, haha!

Previews of the fighters (please tell me if there are typos - I'm not sure if WMMA uses American or British spelling either):

FivePack #1


Clarence GIBB
Jacksonville, Illinois - Slugging
Quote:
From the old school of fighters, Gibb has been a staple on the North American regional circuit where he has developed a reputation as a gatekeeper for young heavyweights. A heavy hitter himself, Gibb has nevertheless developed an unfortunate habit of getting knocked out early by regularly accepting fights at short notice.

In his prime, Gibb was a surprisingly mobile heavyweight and appeared twice in GAMMA. Since then, his weight has fluctuated beyond three hundred pounds with his performance suffering as a result.



Patrick HERMAN
Leipzig, Germany - Street Fighting

Quote:
A newcomer to MMA, Herman has two major advantages in his quest to become one of the sport's leading super heavyweights: superhuman strength and a determination to make a name for himself. His strength makes him a particularly heavy hitter and goes some way towards covering his questionable technique and developing ground game.

Despite his potential, Herman's involvement in certain European political movements might make potential employers uneasy. Further, rumours abound in German motorcycling circles that he had "assistance" reaching his current size.

Stephen STANLEY
San Fransisco, California - All-Rounder

Quote:
Steve Stanley's impressive speed and athleticism makes him a difficult match-up for the super heavyweight division's less mobile fighters. Although he could easily make heavyweight, Stanley prefers to fight at his walking weight of 283 pounds where he can best exploit his physical advantage.

Despite coming to MMA quite late, the American's determination has allowed him to improve quickly in order to make up for lost time. He needs to make up for that lost time quickly, though, because many other fighters hit harder and grapple better.

TENNOSUKE
Kobe, Japan - Sumo Wrestling

Quote:
One of Japan's largest and most famous sumo wrestlers, Tennosuke entered MMA (and pro wrestling) seeking to capitalise on his name value in the twilight of his sumo career. The former yokozuna is clearly only in it for a big payday and seemingly underestimates how much work is required to avoid receiving a beating - even in the world's developing super heavyweight division.



Vincent VAN DER STOK
Gent, Belgium - Kick Boxing

Quote:
The towering van der Stok is best known for his glittering kickboxing career, where he has consistently been one of the top heavyweights over the past decade. The "Thoroughbred" has taken advantage of his name value in the kickboxing world to book big money MMA fights in Japan and Europe.

Although he has put together a respectable record, his wins have primarily been against cans and "freakshow" fighters. Against quality opponents, his fearsome striking has been neutralised and his ground game exposed.

I have attached the first FivePack below. Included are a database file and a pictures file, which you should just be able to paste into the WMMA 4 directory and merge the files together. This can be a bit funky on the Mac, so you may need to copy and paste each file in individually.

After that, the fighters just need to be imported into your current save file or database. You must also copy and paste their pictures from the FivePacks 1 folder into the default Faces and Bodies folders to get those pictures working. I know it is a little fiddly, but I don't know of any other way to do it!


Let me know if it is unbalanced or there are any problems! I've not done this before.

FivePack #2 contains five "cross-over" fighters - those who have succeeded at other sports and have made the move to MMA. As always, let me know how they go!


FivePack #2 - Crossing Over with Adam Ryland

"The Pole-Axe"

Benedykt MAJEWSKI
Kielce, Poland - Kick Boxing

Quote:
After winning his third straight kick boxing Grand Prix in December 2002, the Polish giant has been enveloped by hype since announcing his immediate hiatus from kick boxing to train to become an MMA fighter. His kick boxing style is cautious - he prefers to use his long reach to keep opponents at bay while landing heavy strikes from a distance. It remains to be seen whether that will change in MMA and how it will interact with his grappling game which is described by insiders as "improving".
Maarijo SOKK
Narva, Estonia - Brawling

Quote:
Sokk is best known for his career as a strongman, where he regularly won international competitions around continental Europe. He began training for an MMA career in 2003 and is determined to make a mark in Europe's super heavyweight division. While not particularly talented, Sokk's underground connections will make many more talented MMA fighters baulk at the prospect of facing him - particularly in eastern Europe.
"Smack"
Sam WESTERMAN
Montgomery, Alabama - Greco-Roman Wrestling

Quote:
The charismatic Sam "Smack" Westerman was one of Team USA's youngest athletes at the 2000 Olympics where he performed admirably in the Greco-Roman wrestling event. At just 23, he comes to MMA with a significant hype train behind him because of his supreme wrestling skills. While any MMA success will most probably depend on his grappling, he has power in both hands and an almost endless supply of energy. The future is bright for Westerman - provided he gets the right team behind him early.
"The Hungry Hungarian Hippo"
Péter GALAMBOS
Budapest, Hungary - Sambo

Quote:
Despite his nickname, Péter Galambos is no joke. "The Hungry Hungarian Hippo" forged a successful sambo career that saw him compete regularly at the sport's world championships. In addition to his impressive grappling credentials, Galambos has cross-trained in boxing and jiu jitsu and therefore poses a threat to even the most well-rounded opponent. His weaknesses are his chin and his conditioning that, absent improvement, will render him vulnerable late in fights.
IRONHEAD (Kenji FUJITA)
Osaka, Japan - Wrestling

Quote:
"IRONHEAD" Kenji Fujita has so-far juggled his MMA career with a professional wrestling career that includes stints with some of Japan's top wrestling companies. He has cultivated a strong Japanese following due to his distinctive look and aggressive fighting style. Further, IRONHEAD's iconic chin allows him to withstand tremendous punishment in pursuit of the knockout blow. Despite his strong wrestling pedigree, IRONHEAD prefers to stand and bang with some of MMA's most fearsome strikers which has led to serious questions about his long-term health.

FivePack #3 contains five fighters with new (!) renders who prefer to fight at 135.


FivePack #3 - Bantamweight Brigade

Pedro ROCHA MARTINS
Sao Paolo, Brazil - Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Quote:
Pedro Rocha Martins is a highly rated BJJ practitioner but only transitioned to MMA in his late twenties. A master of the leglock, Martins won his first three fights by heel hook inside the first round. The veteran is a tenacious yet unskilled boxer, whose best chances at success will be on the mat.
"Lemon"
KANG Sung-ha
Seoul, South Korea - Muay Thai

Quote:
A tall and flexible Muay Thai fighter, Kang is an awkward opponent at 135 pounds due to his height and long reach. Despite this, he lacks the power of many pure strikers in his division and offers no threat to (or defence against) wrestlers and more technically gifted strikers.

"The General"

Ashton JAMES
Salt Lake City, Utah - Freestyle Wrestling

Quote:
Formerly a nationally ranked amateur wrestler, Ashton "The General" James delayed his MMA debut by a year in order to further develop his boxing skills. At nearly 24, the Utah native has developed a sound set of stand-up skills to complement his impressive grappling and top game. A community favourite, James pledges to donate 25 per cent of his earnings to his local church.
"Hell Child"
Terrence CHAN
Pearl City, Hawaii - Boxing

Quote:
"Hell Child" Terrence Chan is a talented boxer who seeks to overwhelm opponents with strikes early. The aggressive American has fast hands and can inflict punishment on opponents before they know what is happening. Although he has cross-trained, Chan will still encounter troubles defending himself against good grapplers. He has developed a decent sprawl to neutralise his weaknesses on the mat but is unlikely to challenge the top echelon of fighters at 135.

"Flashy"

Richie FLAHERTY
Bristol, England - Boxing

Quote:
Although the teenage Flaherty is at the start of his career, it is clear he has a lot of work to do. Despite possessing heavy hands, Flaherty has few strings to his bow and will struggle against experienced grapplers. The Bristol native undoubtedly has potential, however he has arguably been pushed into turning professional too early.

FivePack #4 - Even More Bantamweights

"The Inspector"
Jeremiah HOLMES
Flint, Michigan | Wrestling | 9-4

Quote:
A decent wrestler, Holmes fought most of the early fights in his career as an undersized featherweight. With more opportunities - and more money - for bantamweight fighters, Holmes made the change to 135 where he has enjoyed more success. A scrappy fighter, Holmes is a capable all-rounder but is unlikely to rise to much more than a gatekeeper for talented young strikers and grapplers.
Andre OLIVEIRA
Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil | Muay Thai | 0-0

Quote:
Born on the border of Argentina and Brazil, Oliveira is a strong Muay Thai fighter who packs both a decent punch and decent kick. Despite his ability inflict damage on opponents, Oliveira is no more than a medium-sized fish in a small pool of South American bantamweight fighters. Coupled with his almost non-existent grappling skills, Oliveira's Muay Thai background is unlikely to carry him far in the world of MMA.

MIN Sam-soo
Seoul, South Korea | Judo | 5-0

Quote:
South Korea's Min Sam-soo is a relentless grappler who looks to grind his way to victories against weaker opponents. The judoka has adopted the style out of necessity more than anything - he lacks the weapons to finish opponents and seems almost stunned when presented with the opportunity to do so. Unsurprisingly, all five of his career fights have been won by decision, and he seems unlikely to abandon his game plan anytime soon.

"Critical Hit"

Felipe IKEHARA
Salvador, Brazil | Savate | 0-0

Quote:
The slender Brazilian fighter might not look like much, but his leg kicks are something to be feared. The shy youngster comes from a savate background, where he is known for his lightening quick hands and impressive reflexes. His real problem is his lack of body strength, which might see him struggle against more physical grapplers. He has, however, developed a decent takedown defence and his strikes will keep even the most confident grappler guessing.

"The Motley Crewman"

Lloyd MOTTLEY
London, England | Boxing | 0-0

Quote:
Lloyd Mottley is a heavy hitter with an extensive background in amateur boxing throughout the British Isles. The charismatic Englishman is more than just a brawler and has shown promise in his jiu jitsu training. Despite his developing ground game, the diminutive Mottley's fists are his most potent weapons due to the impressive speed of his powerful punches.

I might be doing something wrong, but the database I bring in from this download appears to be the default one

Probably a mistake on my behalf, I've updated the links - let me know if there are any troubles.
