Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Aurich made his announcement about making an alternate translite for ST one day after I ordered this.

I could have saved you from staring at the wrong ship!

Seriously, who knows when I'll finish or if you'll even like it, so just enjoy for the time being.

Question for you Aurich, when you do your designing do you take into account the positions of the bulbs that will be light your masterpiece? Especially when it come to colors of bulbs to light certain objects in the artwork. That could really add a dramatic effect to the artwork.

Oh yeah, for sure, that's a big part of making it successful. With the Shadow I took a picture of the backbox with the translite off and scaled it in Photoshop so I'd have a map of all the lights when I was designing. It can be challenging, sometimes they're in random spots and you have to compromise between fitting them exactly and making the design work.

The Stern games obviously are different, the light tube is a lot more "dumb" in that respect. What's cool is that people are doing custom light kits for Helen, and Gio at the Refinery already told me he wants to do one for Star Trek when I get a design. So I don't have to work backwards so much for that.

If I was do to say BSD or Congo, hit another of the bad movie great game trilogy, I'd totally do the same thing though, map the lights out ahead of time.

Yup that's what I thought...your a true Artist.

I'm bringing this post back to life to see what the best mods are available today for Star Trek Pro. It looks like I'm picking one up this weekend and wanted to know what the best ones are for a Star Trek Pro. I know it's a matter of taste, but right now I'm looking at a Color DMD (since I can take it to the next machine) and the alternate translate off of Ebay. I'm curious as to what others think the best mods out there for this machine are.

Thanks!
