Is anyone with far more artistic talent than I (OK; that’s pretty much everyone, but you know what I mean) working on an overlay for the health warning/MagnaSave decal?
Now that I see these in place in @captainhook’s pic, that yellow health warning notice shatters the effect and needs to go. But it looks like it’s part of the MagnaSave decal (my Premium isn’t here yet; pardon my slightly hesitant wording.) I like the MagnaSave part as is but I’d rather not do something to just cover the warning only since it will be obvious that something was partially covered up.
To be clear: I completely understand why this warning has to be there and I am *NOT* advocating that they should be removed or look different coming from the factory. That jarring yellow is actually perfect for games on public location. But for home use games IMHO it spoils the overall look of what we’re going for with these mods. I don’t put CAUTION: HOT! labels on my guests’ coffee mugs (or KNOW YOUR LIMIT! labels on their other beverage cups) when they come over to play pinball, so I don’t think I really need this warning either. (I always hide all the silica gel packets, though, but that’s another story.)
Perhaps make a very similar MagnaSave decal that fills that entire space but also includes the words WHEN LIT or WHEN FLASHING or WHEN BLINKING BLUE or however it works during gameplay. Or use the reclaimed room for additional rule/feature highlight space or some other creative elements. Then use a couple little spots of non-permanent adhesive to attach it. (If you haven’t discovered the stuff called Instant Tacky yet you should check your local crafts store. Lots of applications.)
Lastly, it would be really great if folks doing these purely for the good of the pinball community could release their contributions with editable/replaceable text so we could use them as is or tweak them here and there if we want to/need to. Not for the stylized logo-related text, but everywhere else. The game keeps evolving and I’m happy to make any wording changes necessary and not have to ask the gracious artist who released them in the first place if they would do another update with X, Y and Z changes.
