I'd like to see the F14 photo'd on the game. Anyone have a photo or two of that?
Quoted from dannunz:
Here you go!
Thanks! They look great! I'm still on the fence but these on machine pics do help. Might wait for the next sale to push me over to try them out. The mirror blades reflect some of the flashing light shows but these add a different kind of depth. I don't like the mirror blades showing the back side of the munchkin land hut ... kind of takes away some of the pluses.
It looks like the pattern and colors will match the color pattern coming from the playfield as a "continuation". I hope that is the case. Any installed photos? I will order next week (=next credit card billing cycle ). If you have no photos, eventually I will post some. Thank you!
Quoted from Icelandr:
What would you like to see on this new version?
All of the main features are on the playfield. Have the outer rings of the maelstrom show and be geometrically correct with the game feature. Behind the ship on the left there isn't much visible surface area so just leave that with the dark blue eerie choppy water with white caps, big waves. Lower left have some rough shore line.
On the right, there isn't much visible area behind the ship, so have octopus (Kraken) tentacles appearing above the ship deck. Have a little more of the body of the creature showing in front of the ship. Have high waves, choppy water with white caps, dark blue eerie colors that match the playfield maybe with some tentacles above the trough lane. Or maybe above the shooter lane in the far distance a ship breaking in two with the Kraken starting to pull it down. Stick with the dark colors. Just my opinions.
Quoted from Icelandr:
Here is what I got.... On the Left blade all the way to the back you see a strange dark area.... This replicates the shadow of the Black Pearl... just to clarify.[quoted image]
Quoted from Genjuro:
Okay, now we've got something going here! A couple of notes..On the left, the ship is the dauntless..which to most people wouldnt matter in my opinion. The Maelstrom is just about there, but I am not seeing it just yet.
Regardless of my opinion I would still buy it as is, but since we are talking back and forth here, I will provide my humble feedback.
kingbw what do you think?
The right side passes my approval with flying colors. That will look fantastic. I tend to agree with genjuro on the left side. Instead of a "top view" of the Maelstrom, an image of an isometric side view would probably be a better playfield feature continuation/extension. Just my opinion. Good colors though. I would buy them ... once my JJPOTC finally gets delivered. Any day now it should be on the assembly line ... I hope.
Something more like this angle, but with the center of the maelstrom being close to the bottom of the side blade (which part of which would be covered up by the playfield). Cut out most of the clouds. Just my idea. The current design is still way better than the other options for this pin.
Quoted from Icelandr:
Here is what I could do guys.... in order to do this I need lots of super high res images, and I found a few, but this Maelstrom is all created from scratch using some high res images of waves as such.
This will be available on the store soon.
Looks good. Thanks for listening to us picky pinsiders' inputs. Hopefully it will sell well for you guys. I'll wait to order the new WOF side blades until these are ready so they can ship together.
Why does the ship rock and get more motion when you get further into the game? Waves? Kraken? Rum bottles rolling to one side?
Back to side blades. Check out their other designs for pirates that they have in stock and ready to "ship". That's one good thing that they usually come up with a couple of designs for pins ... because we have different ideas/tastes and we are picky.
Quoted from jGraffix:
Thank you for noticing our vision. We were originally going to take a different direction with these GameBlades however we were asked by JJP to be mindful of their licensing agreement. JJP has always been very friendly with us every time we've crossed paths.
Having said that we are in the process of reworking them and doing something completely different. Thanks to drfrightner we will be working with a few new designers on some up and coming projects.
My side blades are naked while I wait for your new Wonka design (and your competition) before I make a decision to dress this pin up a bit. Looking forward to it . . . and waiting ...
Just some input on this AS shooter plate ... it looks good, but would look better if the feathers were a light gold color to match the cabinet art more closely for the premium models. The purple matches good for that area.
Quarantined time gave me a chance to catch up on installing mods on my TH including these Tilt art blades. They look good.
Remove the playfield, with someone else helping, and set it next to the pin on saw horses (no need to disconnect anything but mods with short wires). That's my method (along with the wet apply method) with 2 people applying the side blades to keep it all aligned and haven't had a problem. Did about 6 pins so far.
