Quoted from Pinball-is-great:
Way to go RD (and Danielle & Fiona)!
Are your machines organized in certain manner?
And I don't mean, "Yes, in two long rows".
Yes ... It's a little confusing because some of those photos (like the main one the paper used) were taken in November, and some two weeks ago. I changed the layout of the room in December. I turned the centre rows sideways to improve people flow.
They are organized into "clusters", if you like ...
- all the System 11s run around the outside walls, starting from High Speed to the end. Yep, they are in order of manufacture. Lol.
- all the Sterns are in a row, you can see me leaning on them in the video.
- all the WPC games are the next 3 rows down
And all the 70s/80s games are down the back.
I found that by swapping the orientation of the room, I could fit in more machines. Originally, when I designed the house, the machines were all in long rows (as per the November pictures) and this layout would fit 100 machines, less whatever else I had in there. However, when i sketched up the new layout, I can get 100 machines PLUS the corner sofa and my Marshall stack in there. So there's a lesson for us all, don't be afraid to play with your layouts and try different things out. Sometimes you never know till you try it.
