Ok. So I've been debating on whether or not I should start a post to discuss my mod I've been working on.
I saw through reading the forums that there was a demand for a better Jurassic Park gate. Obviously others have seen that as well and congrats to goodtobedad on his version! It looks wayyy better than the original! I've also seen recently that Mezel Mods is working on something.
My thought process is 1) Just complete what I've been working on and when it's ready let everyone see it. 2) I don't want to steal anyone's thunder but at the same time when I do get mine completed I don't want people to think I stole the idea from others. 3) Do I just let my hard work go down the drain because someone came out with it first? 4) My version brings something new to the table so people can have options.
I've been working on my mod for the last 4-5 months and have spent countless hours and quite a bit of money in development so I figured what the hell. Here you go.
My mod has flickering torches and the gates are functional. I'm still working out some of the small details (JP logo, final wiring connections, documentation, and improving the final version for durability and reliability) and I figure it will be ready in about 3-4 weeks at most. I'll have a demo video of the fully functional (close to final) version in the next few days. For now you can see the crude prototype working in the video below.
This video shows the flickering torch test.
My mod will not be inexpensive as my BOM cost is already more than goodtobedad's version and it's time consuming to manufacturer. Let me know what you think. Ideas for improvement are also welcome.
