Issue with Lucas Oil Stadium

Postby KeepinItTeal » Wed Feb 17, 2021 10:32 pm

I’ve got a 1pm game in franchise mode at Indy and the game is being depicted as a night game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Anyone know why that’s happening and what the fix might be? This is using the latest version of the FI/FF mod.

Thanks.

At Lucas Oil? Hmm.... We should have a day and night version of the stadium installed. I'll double check the next time I'm around the game.

I think the issue is that Lucas Oil (closed) depicts as a night game regardless of the game time. Lucas Oil (open) seems to be working fine.

Would you have any idea how to fix that? The reason we went with the closed stadium as the primary one is because, if there's bad weather, they'd close the roof. Felt that the default should reflect that you'll likely never see bad weather at one of their games.

It must have something to do with the DAT settings? (which I know nothing about) It's as if Lucas Oil (closed) is set to always be depicted as a night game. I think I've noticed the same with AT&T Stadium. Maybe Jinx would know?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think there is no time option for the domes in the game. It's been a while, but that's what I vaguely remember.
So the Giants traded Beckham....

State Farm Stadium – whether closed or open – has a day, dusk and night mode. Whoever converted your Lucas Oil tpf to dat only extracted the night version of State Farm to use as a base. That's why, regardless of whatever time you choose, you will only see the night mode.

The person who did it must've thought that State Farm was like other dome stadiums in the game, in there's only one version (day, dusk or night) and didn't need to extract three versions. But the problem is that there are three versions, which is why I hesitate to call it a dome.

But all of this leads to another question for Revan - why are there three imports of Lucas Oil (closed) in the stadiums.dat? For domes, all you need to do is import the stadium into the "day" slot and you're good to go. There's no need to import the same thing into the "dusk" and "night" slots.

Can you send me the TPFs needed. I got some time this weekend to fix the Lucas Oil (closed).
Edit: Include also the AT&T.
Thanks!

This is exactly the issue. Thanks BIT.
