Ye Old Space Station WIP

PacDude

I figure there's enough Medieval Madness tables out or coming out now so I'm thinking I'll drop the project and make something else instead, maybe Space Station here. Besides, Ultracade already has a MM and so there's no real driving reason to make one with interest levels in yet another new one dropping rapidly from what I've seen and me not havin that much interest in it to begin with.

I do need a good backbox photo of Space Station still, though so if someone has a good photo of it, let me know.

Interesting ! I'm curious if you can figure out a good solution for the GI. It turns green during multiball as far as I know.

Well, I must say I wish you would finish your Medieval Madness as I think you would do the best job with it, but there are plenty of strong versions either out or coming out soon at this point, so it's better to do something that will sustain your interest.

Space Station looks promising, and it could definitely use a new version.

Well Subzero, I'm seeing vastly more interest (16+ pages) in a mod of a 4+ year old table at VPF than a brand new one using the latest techniques here while PK goes on about unbeatable settings he now uses that are exactly 0.02 off from MY settings and frankly I just started thinking, WTF am I bothering for? The people? Who cares what they think? They're all just gimme gimme gimme anyway.

I figure I'd enjoy working on Space Station more than MM so I've put MM on the backburner indefinitely. I figure MM could be done in less than a month, but I don't really give a crap. You've got a mod of Macho's table coming in less than a fortnight (whatever the frack that is) plus that new Jamin version and Joxer's old version. How many versions of MM do you need, after all? Space Station looks like it needs more attention than MM at this point. But hell, I've got people YELLING in this thread about Whitewater. That kind of rudeness in a table WIP thread really pisses me off, so I think I'll put that one dead last on my list now.

And there's nothing FLAT about Space Station. Frankly, it's layout is more complex than MM, IMO at least in terms of doing plastic placements, etc. which were dead easy on MM.

Ah well, I guess that's the price of fame, still I'm glad to see you're doing Space Station and it's looking good, sure played many more games on this pinball then the others, it actually had some rather cool sounds and light flashing displays, top notch pinball IMO.

Pacdude, you really put your heart into all of the projects that you take on and I know that this one will be no exception. Since you are the one making the table, then it is more important to work on a table that will make you happy in the end. Otherwise you are wasting your time. If you are not happy working on a table, then you are less likely to give it your all. I for one appreciate your work and thank you for sharing it. I just wish that I had 1/10 the tallent to manipulate graphics as you do. I am more of a problem solver as I did on Popeye in fixing the ball lock on Joep's original release.

85+% of the script is done now and most triggers are in place (save the bits that still require other parts to be added and even some of those are pre-coded). All the playfield light walls are in place and pre-coded. I've got to do the light maps, the rest of the ramps and the space station platform next, finish the coding and then do GI light and other flasher effects.

I still need a good backbox photo for this game, though. It won't look right without it.

(BTW, I'll probably finish MM at some point; I just don't feel like working on it right now....)

I found the backglass at Mr. Hide's site. The angle is not the best though.

That should do fine. Thanks. I looked at his site myself, but the entry that was labeled Space Station was showing Space Mission pictures....I didn't see another entry there. Maybe I had an old link or something?

Wow, that's a great angle there, Steve. The resolution isn't quite as high as I would like, though. I'll see how correcting MrHide's picture turns out first....

Lookin good PD...glad you've decided to finish up on yer Medieval Madness at some point in the future also. We can never have enough of a good thing. I just released the version I did so people could have something while they waited on PK's release and your eventual release.

Looks great, PD. I'm really looking forward to seeing another 80's Williams table after all of these Ballys you've done recently. It will be a nice change of pace. It's kind of funny to think about it: Paragon to Monopoly to Space Station. Quite the gamut there.
