I spent the past couple weeks creating a CAD model of the table. The left ramp is designed to lift the ball up off the table and slam it down, kinda like a wheelie. That ramp, however, was asked to be removed.
Since I’m waiting for parts for other tables, I was able to do a lot of work on this table over the past week. I was asked to design this as though it was a 60s/70s era table, so the first thing I did was chop the playfield length down from 46″ to 42″. For a while I wasn’t really sure what type of flow this table would have- Should it be nudge based like Target Pool? Or should it have more flow to it like Paragon? Eventually I decided on a more Paragon/Spiderman/Supersonic type of flow. I talked to Mark a lot while I was iterating the table’s design to ensure I was making the thing along the lines of what he wanted.
Here’s some updated info from the guy who requested the table.
What type of era do you want this pin to by styled as? 60s/70s
I’ll answer as best I can. My fav. graphics/style is Gottlieb’s Amazing Spiderman pin. I’m not a big fan of the newer pins with all the ramps, spinning huge gimmicky objects, multi-balls, etc. Some of the ideas of those things might come into play. More on that at the bottom of this e-mail. I have included a brief description of the road below, hopefully it will give you an idea of the concept.
