Quoted from McSquid:
You do whatever makes you happy. If you think stock is best, great. If you want to make it light up like a Vegas sign and it makes you happy GO FOR IT.
I'm personally doing a little bit of both with mine. we shall see how it turns out.
I wholeheartedly agree.
In hindsight my personal tastes lean more toward the stock look (when it comes to LEDS) rather than the Vegas sign look (or as another one of my pinhead friends says: the “lit up like a whorehouse” look), but that was only after a lot of experimenting. And I basically do all of that experimenting every time I do another game because just because I like stock on game A doesn’t mean I will prefer stock on game B.
So pick an area of TZ and try something there with color LEDs vs. white, warm white vs. cool white, frosted vs. clear etc. until it looks pleasing to you. Don’t just do one LED, but don’t do the whole game all at once either - do it an “area” at a time, recognizing that an “area” on TZ could be something like the door with the door panels and door knob, to everything on the Powerfield, to something like all of the lower half of the playfield’s GI.
It will take a good amount of time and some investment, but once you figure out how you like it, you’ll be very happy with your game. Or more precisely: your FIRST game.
