Ultimate Base Roster V35 for NBA 2K12 PC Released

HAWK23 has released V35 of the Ultimate Base Roster for NBA 2K12 PC. In addition to updating the current season rosters accurate as of December 23rd 2012, the latest version also includes three new retro season mods, adds more art for both current and retro teams, and makes several minor fixes and tweaks. A rundown of the major updates in V35 is as follows:

  • Added the following Season Mods: 1986-1987, 1985-1986, and 1984-1985
  • Includes a “UBRV35 Association.ros” roster file which strips out all of the retro teams for those of you who just want the updated roster with flawless Season/Franchise mode. Don’t worry the normal Ultimate Base Roster V34 with all the retros is still there too.
  • All players on current teams have real portraits
  • More accessories tweaked, and some ratings/sig shots edited for accuracy – courtesy NickQuick
  • Added 50 new cyberfaces for players in the 1980’s Season Mods
  • Tweaked ages across ALL Season Mods for better accuracy
  • 7 new retro courts added/6 new sets of retro jerseys added (most new jerseys/courts from the 1980’s)
  • Added the 2012 Christmas jerseys for the 10 teams playing on Christmas
  • Fixed rookie/sophomore teams for the 2000 Season Mod
  • Tweaked ALL Season Mods for minor updates. We now have 19 full season mods, the ABA mod, and the UBR all compatible without affecting regular NBA2K12 files and they all work in season/association.
  • Current NBA Teams Rosters/Rotations up to date as of Sunday December 23rd, 2012

You can find the Ultimate Base Roster here in our Downloads section. For more information, previews, support or just to give thanks, check out HAWK23’s thread here in the NBA 2K12 section of the NLSC Forum.
