    Star Wars: Death Star Assault (Ultimate Pro)

    “EPIC Space Battles” mod!

    I’m glad I can finally show off some of what I’ve been working on the last 2 weeks. This is my crazy mod that changes this awesome table into a Galactic Battleground in Future Pinball. You’ve never seen a Star Wars table like this!

    I think you guys will be blown away.

    – you want X-Wing, Tie Fighter, Millenium Falcon, Turbo Laser Cannon, and Vader’s Tie Fighter… you got it

    – you want space battles… you got it

    – you want ships flying around the table…. you got it

    – you want tie fighter and x-wing laser blasts… you got it

    – you want XWing and Tie Fighter firing at each other… you got it

    – you want exploding ships… you got it

    – you want a turbo laser cannon that fires with animation… you got it

    – you want the Millenium Falcon flying around the table…. you got it.

    – you want Darth Vader on the table reacting to table events… you got it.

    This is using 25 mini playfields so far… its nuts. The Millenium Falcon, Vader and his Tie Fighter are custom models…. the others are “pegs” (to avoid the flares showing through the model problem).

    I’ll have a wip of the table available after some code clean up and testing with the newer BAM features.

    Thanks to @Gimli for help with Darth! … @polygame for nudging the progress of new Importer features… and of course @ravarcade for the amazing updates that allow this to be possible!

    Big thanks to @fuzzel for the usage of his X-Wing, Vader Tie Fighter, and Turbo Laser models!

    Watch until the end for a special treat.

    Can only imagine how EPIC this is going to look in VR. Brilliant!

    One more quick video before I release this. This version of the table will hold you guys over until PinEvent (DOF and PuP) is added.

    While waiting…. you may as well install the brand new BAM (and BAM Open VR) update just released today (v.1.5-301), as the new table will require it.

    New BAM flasher beacons and spotlights!

    Before I finish off the very last of my PinEvent update for Star Wars DSA (Ultimate Pro) – Epic Space Battles… I thought I’d throw in a quick couple of cool lighting updates that uses BAM’s new flasher spotlights. A few “real” beacons on the back and side wall, and a spotlight on the Millenium Falcon as it flies around.

    You can see how HUGE a difference BAM’s per pixel real lighting and rendering makes compared to any kind of static lighting. So much potential…and it will only get better. Note: the HUD DMD and FP Videos were turned off for this video demo only.

    PinEvent update and PuP-Pack coming very soon! It is very worth the wait!
