    Yes the Pinside map is way awesome, but I feel that places like Shorty's in Seattle need to be set aside from all those other blue dots. Maybe have diffrent colors for places that have more then 5 machines?

    For example,
    Blue dot-Has atleast one pinball machine
    Green dot-Has five or more pinball machines.
    Red dot-Has ten or more pinball machines.
    Flag sticking out of the top-Runs leagues/tournements.

    What do you guys think?

    I know the rebel pinball locator does something like that. Also let's you filter by minimum pins

    +1,Pretty good idea you have there,AbacusMan.

    The color coding is a great idea!

    Agreed. Maybe just have the icons appear larger the more games that a location has. So as to stick out from a cluster of smaller locations.

    Would be a good idea for either or a combo of those ideas.

    Great idea! I think that colors will be easier to implement than size, but I'd have to look into that. I definitely like the idea, Abacusman!

    Totally cool idea! Sounds like Robin is on it so its gonna happen.

    Looking at the map, the color sceam is blue,yellow, red.

    Robin, the format I use for my maps is to set the location's flag z-index to however many games they have. That way the big locations always have their marker on top. Easy fix! I'm using color-coding to indicate what kind of place the location is (bar, restaurant, all ages, things like that).

    Sounds like the map is going to be pretty bad ass.
