Quick Overview

Superstar base with many sliders left at default
12 Minute Quarters
Real Player %
Aim to have User vs CPU or CPU vs CPU game stats match simmed games

Welcome

This set was built from 2K's default Superstar sliders in a MyNBA setting.

What I prefer is listed below, as I like to be more of a GM than a coach. This allows me to evaluate my actual coach based on his performance. If you prefer to control more, adjust as you see fit.

Many of the sliders are at default as the game plays well and doesn't need a massive overhaul. The changes I've made, however, are crucial, in my opinion.

Other Notes

Right now, I'm honing in on getting injuries and total played games over the course of a season more accurate. Admittedly, we're way too low on injuries and seeing way too many guys play in 82 games.

Like Madden, etc, I won't be subscribing to slider myths without actual testing. From what I've seen, ALL sliders act as they're intended to do so.

Try this for injuries and tell me what you think. My opinion itís a solid balance.

User/CPU
injury frequency 65/65
Injury effects 35/35
Career ending injuries 5/5

Re: Mike Lowe NBA 2K24 Sliders

Giving this a try right now to combat the number of *82 games played* players we see in a simulated season.

* CPU Injury Frequency 100 (+45)
* User Injury Frequency 100 (+45)
* User Injury Effects 40 (-15)
* CPU Injury Effects 40 (-15)

Simulation Injuries 100 (+45)

Sorry I missed this post. We're thinking alike. I'm finding we need to go further than that, even. Happy to report, I'm very pleased so far.

Also, I'm going to turn off Game Indicators. Once you get used to who you're controlling on D, it's so much better than having hot and cold halos everywhere.

Re: Mike Lowe NBA 2K24 Sliders

Tried my first game after downloading the scenario (thanks again for this).

I was the Kings and played at the Jazz.

I lost 121-118.

We shot 54% from the field including 43% from 3 point range. The Jazz shot 49% from the field and 34% from 3 point range.

We shot 17/21 from the line and the Jazz were 23/27.

We had 52 points in the paint to the Jazz's 58.

Total Rebounds were 49-43 in the Kings favor.

We forced 10 turnovers which led to 11 points. The Jazz forced 19 which led to 24 points. (Most of these were caused by my bad passing, but I will get better lol)

Now with the main stats out of the way, I want to say I really enjoyed how everything played.

I love..love...love not having the player indicators on. It does taking getting used to but once you do, it is wonderful.

The game speed at 55 seems quick at first but I think this was due to me playing a lot at 50 previously.

It was very refreshing to see actual fast breaks after turnovers (17 fast break points for Jazz to my 15).

I know it's only one game but great job so far and I will report anything that seems off going forward.

Thanks!

Great stuff! Yeah game speed at 55 is just to generate more possessions to try and keep up with simulated games (which also has possessions nerfed).
