This is what my Star field projector looks like now. It is a much larger display and I like it . I used the EVIL Dremel to achieve my mod .

Yes, that is much better. Still not *that* interesting, but better.

I think it is a awesome part of the game even before the mod.

That does look a whole lot better!! I'd be curious to see what the actual projector unit looks like, how it's mounted and who the OEM for it is. I assume it's in the apron?

Totally agree. Star field projector is saweeheat!! Gets you pumped to wipe out the Klingons from Uranus

Btw love the modification Jim

How about posting us a pic of the area amount that you dremeled out from the apron? I'd like to know how much was removed to acheive this.

Be careful when you ream out the hole,I used a high speed cutting tool in my dremel and only had on eye protection and no gloves and I have a lot of small shards in my hands and it is no fun.Use eye and hand protection

I've a question is this supposed to be a star field or laser battle?

It would have been cooler if laser shots were fired rather than just wave the dots wander around IMO

Looks better-time to bust out the dremel.

I herd that this originally projected all over the room but Stern had to make the hole smaller. So is IT being projected all over your room now?

New games that have to be modded to look good. I wonder what the woz bashers would say?

#12 6 years ago

It doesn't have to be modded to look good, the playfield laser is fine out of the box. this is just a mod to do something different with it.

Exactly ! We could see the projector just fine. This is not like the lame GI lighting in WOZ !

I was going to post somewhere else that the starfield projector is the most underwhelming feature I can think of. I have STLE and I thought the projector looked lame in the videos released long before I got my game, so I had the opposite of high hopes for it. Regardless, I was still underwhelmed. On my game it is so subtle that I wonder if I even would have noticed it if there hadn't been so much hype about it.

This dremeled version looks better and I just might do this to mine.

Maybe just maybe, almost all pinball machines have things identified after design and fabrication that could be done better.

Like -STLE dremel star field mod
-TAV lanes
-Xmen bash toy relocation
-Woz GI lighting
-and the list goes on and on and on

I am glad because it means new machines are being made and pinball is alive!

I think I want a ST

Wow that looks great! How much did you cut out? Can you post a picture of the cut hole?

Never forget...

That is funny and is exactly what I was thinking about the projector before I saw this video.
It should be called the disco mirror ball mod if that is all it does.

If it only had some Bee Gees sound tracks in the game you'd be all set!

The game looks great and fun to play, I'd say it's a reach with the star field projector to say that looks "awesome"

That's exactly why they went with red.

WOZ needs a GI projector.

I love My WoZ and I Really enjoy playing ST and think its a fun fast game, both games are very different and really should not be compared to each other but what do I know? My opinion on the SFP is its pretty bad and doesnt really do much for the game other then making it look cheesy. OP I do like what you did with Your SFP it makes the effect look much better.

If the GI lighting in Hobbit remains identical in implementation to WoZ I will really be surprised.

I have a mod for that

edit---Im so going to add the BeeGee's song to my AC/DC along with my favorite Iron Maiden song!

No, they went with red because red laser pointers are cheap! If they wanted it to look like stars, they'd use blue, but no... Sorry, it looks cheezy and the Emperor has no clothes on, guys.

That's only part of the guys comment. You make it seem like that is the only thing he said...

"I love My WoZ and I Really enjoy playing ST and think its a fun fast game, both games are very different and really should not be compared to each other but what do I know?"

Thank you for posting the video.
