BACKUP YOUR FILE FIRST

Credits to Nikita488, who provided all the tools necessary to make this & thetommyboy2002 for his 50 team select stage, I took lots of inspiration from his layout + everyone who contributed to OCP Pack & character edit

Before


After



Team Select Layout Edited for OCP Pack 27 characters only
https://mega.nz/#!Y7JEWQRJ!4M6Q-WkAfFwZZqDenoXyAapJLNxJh7LeoV6lVSWZKZo
And here a file to remove the gray border of the team select screen & the left frame from the main menu (not mandatory, but team select looks better with this change imo)

EDITED LAYOUT FOR 33 ROSTER & MUA GOLD ONLY BELOW (NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OCP) :
https://mega.nz/#!Y7JEWQRJ!4M6Q-WkAfFwZZqDenoXyAapJLNxJh7LeoV6lVSWZKZo
And here a file to remove the gray border of the team select screen & the left frame from the main menu, IF YOU ARE USING MUA GOLD, THIS IS NOT NEEDED (not mandatory, but team select looks better with this change imo)
https://mega.nz/#!lmxFzKha!HNhD01rHjdRles0GqOXb4Sz7VIhIEB6dgEODHfPjmk8


Compatibility :
-Only compatible with MUA 2006 with OCP Pack 1.3 installed (to have 27 characters) + any others mods you wants, except the 33 roster hack & MUA GOLD Content, because the file provided only supports 27 characters with menulocations number of OCP Pack 1.3
EDIT : I added a version specific to 33 roster hack & MUA GOLD.

-other team stage file with riser not provided by me or adapted by others users are not recommended, because the layout I edited is not adapted to other team stage
[/color]

Purpose
The default layout had given me so much headache to found the perfect location for mannequins (not touching other mannequins), have you spend hours setting herostat just to change menulocation like me lol ?

Issue I hate when using custom mannequin :
-the default layout is just too tight, too many mannequins hidden by front mannequins
-When using advanced lightning with shadow to max, mannequin have big ass shadow, this is very annoying when front mannequin obcure backrow mannequins that are just behind them
-menulocation 23 of the Thing is not facing you, every mannequin you put in here face to the right (or left I don't remember)

What I did to try to resolve those issue :
-spacing as much as possible mannequin location uniformly
-avoiding mannequins being exactly behind front mannequins to try to minimize mannequin shadow obscuring backrow mannequins when advanced lightning is on with max shadow
-edited the team stage ripped from the remastered file + ripped the bench of Mellowmods, I did enlarge the bench to fit more mannequins, retextured some part to black, because it was eyesore with advanced lightning with max shadow to me.
-Used vanilla texture, instead of remastered, because I found the remastered texture too detailed, enlarged walls to fit more the screen
-changed the angle of menulocation 23, so every mannequin you put in here face you, like any other mannequin spot, instead of facing to the right
-removed the Ghost Rider & Human Torch effect, because too tedious for me to change their effect location lol

The file provided change where mannequin spot are located + team stage edit

How to install :
-replace the mlm_team_back located in Where your installed the game\ui\menus (this file adjust mannequin positioning)
-replace the m_team_stage located in Where your installed the game\ui\menus/models (this file is the team select stage)
-You don't need to start a new game unless your make change to the herostat.

Mannequin position recommendation :
- Spider-Man menulocation 16 always put the green arrow indicator below the mannequin, instead at the top of it, since the vanilla Spider-Man mannequin is upside down, if you wish to put another mannequin in this spot, I recommend a flying mannequin
- The Thing Menulocation 23 is now facing toward you, instead of facing to the right, so you can put any mannequin here without worrying about its facing angle
-With advanced lightning + shadow to max, mannequins will have big shadow behind them, thus if you put a mannequin in the front that is significantly taller than the mannequin behind, the shadow will obscuer the backrow mannequins, so it not recommended to put way taller mannequin in the front, same size is fine
- backrow menulocation are best for large mannequins and taller mannequin than the frontrow, mannequins with cape best in the back too
- very large mannequins are best placed at the very side of the screen

-Updated the layout for OCP a bit, moved down some spot a bit to touch properly the bench/riser & some small tweaks.
-Added optional file to enable the Ghost Rider & Human Torch team select effect
-Added optional file for MUA GOLD with new mannequin and setup
-Also added a version for the 33 roster hack or MUA GOLD (Not satisfied with this, but I can't think of any other layout).

There is also a small issue found out by Baconwizard, the camera after selecting some characters or moving too much to the side does not reset exactly at the center, might be hardcoded stuff I dunno.

EDIT V3 added :
-spaced more the mannequin on very left & right and adjusted team stage.
