Is it me or do those look insanely thick to anyone else?
Isn't a "true color" plastic protector simply just transparent? I get what's trying to be done here, but most people just clown-puke Pinbot and Jackbot anyways. I was definitely guilty of the 'matched sides' GI on Pinbot. By the time I got Jackbot I realized that it looked terrible. These are visual mods first and most, and the protection is an auxilliary benefit unless you're going to offer them in places that actually need protection. It's a pretty far stretch to claim that slings and inlane guides are the only ones that need it on this game.
There's like four or five other vulnerable plastics on JB that actually need to be protected not just from breakage, but from ball wear from ejects, particularly on the sample games where it's NOT a scoop and the ball can rub against the top of the plastic when it gets kicked out of the saucers. It sucks, because at one point I had outlines on grid paper that I'd traced of the plastic, along with suggested extended edges for ball protection at points of breakage....but everyone I talked to wanted me to provide vector files, and I had no clue at the time how to go about doing that. I'm pretty sure I tossed the papers after giving up on trying to get people to make a full set of protectors, not just some half-assed thing.
This game, more than most, really does *need* a FULL set of protectors.
