SamModder,
1) Yes, but not directly ; you'll need the .Max file to edit their structure a bit (it takes a couple of clicks)

2) Outfits aren't the same for the new 3D players ; faces might be usable, but you'll have to rescale them to fit them in the new player texture, so maybe it'll be better to use the in-game face configurator.

Other stuff should work in TE4.

3) Not sure, I always tons of stuff to do for my family & personal life... :sweat:
I hope to get something polished enough to be at least on Steam Early Access by next June. It'll be easier to predict where we go once the Online mode will be done.

Another year and still doesn't come out. Looking at it in perspective, maybe the pre-order was a mistake...

I think the same. i pre ordered the game 1 year and a half ago, and still waiting. it was nonsense to pre order.

hello, for my part I pre-ordered to help in the development of the game so I do not regret it. but I also find the evolution quite slow and above all I cannot play a te4 under current conditions.

think first, dont put ur mind in an unnecesary hurry :fear:
Theres just too much work for a single man dealing with his personal and profesional life, its not so weird to think this will take lot of time. At the end we all know that TE4 will be release, ofc we dont know the when :mrgreen:

I agree megy, its better to have a full game rather than an unfinished mess like some of the console games, best let manu polish everything before we get a full package

juanabolche & HeadHunter,
I understand you can get frustrated by the situation.

Now, hopefully, you can understand I'm 1000 more frustrated than you, at the very least. I wish TE4 could already be done : my life and my family depend on it, literally. Soon the Big 3 will be retired (they are all just 1 bad injury to be done for good), so I always worry that we'll see the end of a golden age for tennis, meaning that TE4 will be finished too late and doesn't get the success I hoped for. If it doesn't, my future money-wise could get really muddy... :sweat:

Anyway, there's an alpha of the game that is already played by a lot by people who have pre-ordered the game. TE4 as a simulation is already much better than TE2013, even if gameplay-wise it obviously still needs more polishing and balancing to reach the state of TE2013.

The only really important things missing are the online mode (which is my top priority right now) and the Modding support (you can already Mod the Tour & Players bases & add 2D courts, though).

What would you like to see in the game right now ? I still didn't decide for sure what I'll do once the online mode will be operational, so you can voice your opinions, that is one of the benefits to have pre-ordered the game. :yes:


lolo2b,
why you can't play TE4 ? If it's because of the requirements, they won't change... :fear:


megyaem & rharm2,
thanks for your support and your understanding. :yes:

Wait... We can already mod the player base? But I couldn't find the Players.ini file which I used to mod TE2013 player base.

Yea i thought in this too. New players era still in development (as TE4 :mrgreen: ) thats why mainly attraction is golden era players, also some of the legends like Agassi, Sampras, etc...

Edit: Too bad that TE4 couldnt implement modding for animations :cry:

JaNeZoKu,
you need the TEM2 Modding SDK : topic11-31376.php . :yes:

megyaem,
animation modding will come, but it needs special treatment and also needs the basis for the new general modding. Maybe I'll do it soon after the online will be ok.
