***Special thanks to Kees for the original table and Loserman for the B2S mod and backglass!***
I was very lucky to be able to work with Hauntfreaks for this Smart Set makeover. This is my first contribution to a VPX (VP in general) table. This was also my first attempt at a redraw for anything at all (so go easy on me). :-)
Hauntfreaks makes anything he touches look better and he did most of the work... lol.
I have included, for your convenience, an improved backglass, wheel logo, basic instruction card, and backglass still image with this package.
My tables are all set to portrait orientation. If you are like most normal people and want to change this to 270 orientation, I have included a POV backup file for your convenience. Simply go to the file > import > backdrop pov in the editor and import the Smart Set 270.xml file. The settings will be automatically applied for you. Fine tuning can be done in the "camera-lights mode" under the table menu in the editor.
A note on the "down and up post" position for anyone who played the original table. We found that screenshots existed with these posts in reversed positions. Based on the information in IPDB we found that most production models, except for some late production, matched the orientation we are using in this table, and that this is supported by the game manual, according to IPDB, so this is why we chose to do this. It makes more sense as the "up post" is the more difficult shot and the "down post" is a hazard near the kickers.
For my part, additional mods are allowed without approval and encouraged. However, Kees and Loserman have requested that you seek approval before modding, so please check with them.
Please enjoy this table. We will try to address any issues that arise through updates.
