    Craig Overton will share Chris Woakes' Gray-Nicolls bat, it's not identical but close enough:

    Peter Siddle will share Tim Paine's Kookaburra bat, it's close enough and not worth making an additional bat for the small differences:

    That concludes my bat making for this project, once I've had a look at them in-game I may make some tweaks to fix any problems but overall all of the players who featured in the series will now have an identical or at least nearly identical bat to what they were using during the first test at Edgbaston and if not - the closest I could do based oh a range of photographic evidence from the other 4 Ashes Tests. I'll also go through the other players in the two squads and assign them the closest possible bat to what they are using in test cricket currently too.

    I'm going to make the gloves for the top 3-5 batsmen from each team as well, possibly more if I can be bothered, I'll also make the correct wicket keeper gloves for Bairstow & Paine.

    Finally I'll make some quick generic batting pads for each brand that the players use (no coloured or black straps though since they look nasty!)

    Once this is finished I'll assign all of the bats & kit items to the correct players in the USER.DAT file and the patch should follow soon after.

    Well, does anybody want to help with the batting gloves? :yes Now would be a great time for someone to contribute if they know how to make batting gloves because I'm struggling :(

    I'm trying to figure out using @immyz's work how to make them, can anyone explain to me what part of the gloves are in the red rectangles and whether I'm right in thinking those two on the left are the back side of the thumbs?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    I badly wish I could help mate ! But since I am a novice in modding, I might be of no use here :(

    No worries, if I can just figure this out or someone can explain it to me then it shouldn't take that long to make some gloves but I'm finding the gloves a little confusing at the moment.

    Update, I figured lots of things out! the _s type of images are 'Specular' and the _n are 'Normal Map', I can create these type of images with Photoshop!

    So I've been busy and finished making 20 different pairs of batting gloves, was pretty tricky and took a long time because for a lot of them there are a real lack of any good source images available. I also understand the structure of the batting glove images a little better now but I decided just to focus on the parts of the batting glove that you will see because in-game you won't see the palm-side of the gloves very often, if at all really, therefore the majority of them will have the same white palm-side as you'll see when I upload the images later because this was a big time saver, if anybody cares enough to have the palm-side of the batting gloves perfectly authentic too then I invite them to improve my work but I'm happy enough with them like this. I just need to have a look at them in-game now to see if I need to make any tweaks - I did get a quick look at the bats I made for the England players in-game the other day and I think they looked pretty great to be honest :)

    I'm really looking forward to finishing my work on this project soon! I've decided not to make batting pads because I think they look nicer plain white anyway and I've had enough spending so many hours on this now but I will create both Bairstow's & Paine's updated Wicket Keeping gloves, nearly everything is finished now so the Patch will be available very soon.
