i maked the ballpack as you upload all needed files for creating fbmod...but i still prefer your ballpackHere is an updated ballpack fbmod that includes the La Liga OMB: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1xUKakdQdXLNRD2rAZxvq1QtJApYI6X8w
*it contains the miniball as well
The strange and which i am not sure about, are they requesting or they are ordering?I am about to release an update to the AIO, which I am doing due to issues I noticed with some kits... in it will be any kits I've made since the release of AIO 6. Do you want to wait, or do you wish for me to send an fbmod of just the home kit. I don't know if I'm going to get to the other kits immediately... precedence goes to more popular teams and those kits I really wish to make. Do you realize that creating an fbmod is as simple a thing as loading a word document and then saving it. You only have to import 3-9 files (more often 3) for a kit. It is very simple, and I just cannot imagine why anyone would rather wait for someone else to create it for them. There are a plethora of tutorials... I don't mean to be harsh on you, as you are not the only one.
This is more of a general statement about the community, and how it has changed since frosty and the fbmod system. Everyone looks at this stuff like it's a magic trick, or some sort of mysterious knowledge that are unable to obtain. There is also a sense of entitlement among some (certainly not all, as I am regularly asked politely and thanked for whatever I may have done for them); I would like for you all to see this message that finally tipped me over the edge with this particular individual. I do not intend to indicate who it was, as I am not posting it as an attack on him. It is emblematic of everything I just said:
Him: "hi man can you send me all png files for kits of world cup 2018??? such as your croatia e serbia"
"ok man if is it possible all kits from all national teams in the game"
Me: "I’m not sure that you are familiar with this process. It takes a while to do each team. How about you tell me 5 teams and we’ll go from there"
He listed them, I provided them in dds format. He was unwilling to learn to open them. 'Can you do it for me'
"Can I have texture files of kit of PL teams?
I will try to convert it for FIFA 14.
Brighton & Hove Albion Brighton
West Ham United
Note : If the kit texture is not made yet just send me the made one.
PS : Tired of searching all the forum thread.....so long.
My response was not as friendly as I try to be. In less than a week he asked that I extract over 300+ textures from the game for him. This is an extreme example, but you see the problem, right? Everyone wants something but are unwilling to even learn to open the files. Next thing you know, we who want to provide for the community are going to be asked to remotely install things on a user's machine.
I just don't understand the unwillingness to learn to do literally anything in the way of modding. I didn't know how to create anything when I joined, but I learned not by saying 'will you do this for me'. I can understand not being into it enough to learn photoshop and kit making or whatever... but not being willing to learn to import already made files and clicking three times afterwards to create a mod is just perplexing. Try! You just may be more capable than you think
I hope that the post I wrote did not come across too angrily. I was a bit frustrated when I wrote it (which is not usually a good time to express oneself), but I was more pointing out a phenomenon that is simply strange to me. I love modding and I do it for fun... I am not going to hang it up just because I get irked by someone whose candor is not ideal. Most of the folks who visit my thread are quite polite and give what is - quite frankly - undue praise for my mediocre work. I am happy to help out as many people with custom requests and the like because that is what people did for me when I first arrived at SGF. The modders here were truly talented then... as Leo_95 said, the move to the Frostbite engine and the lack of modding capabilities it wrought caused an exodus of the most talented content creators. I like to think that by accommodating requests and providing textures I might lead some new members into creating content of their own because (as I said) that is how I learned and gained interest. But the fbmods don't lead to anything but a file from which one can learn nothing. That is what I was saying in truth. I will continue to provide them, of course; however, I think it is a shame that the modding community will inevitably continue to shrink until it just sort of dies out. That is what I think is a shame. But I will keep plugging away until I no longer enjoy it. So bring on the requests while the gettin is good!!! (Just maybe don't ask me to extract hundreds of files because you don't want to search the forum ya know)
