    Thank you jaelove.

    Here are a few screenshots to show how easy it is to create your own illustration on pinballs.
    There is a layer on each PSD to help you find easily the different pinball parts (cabinet, board, leds, table mechanics).

    Awesome!

    This looks very interesting. I would be interested in this in order to make older style pinball games like from the 70's and 80's.

    Nice screenshots...
    Hmmm... when you say "Pinball Creator" do you mean tables only or (I hope) a whole playable pinball with scripts, balls and so on ??????
    I have a doubt...

    Hi everyone,

    We added 18 new pre-build ramp in Pinball Creator asset.

    Ramp and pipe system is modular then this provides unlimited possibilities.


    Sky is the limit :)

    Great !
    My questions are : How easy is it to add OUR ramp or other objects ? What about the colliders ? And to add our "missions" ?

    Hi p6R,

    You can import your ramp or objects without difficulty. Just drag and drop prefabs.

    In asset there is toy animation system to trigger animation on objects.


    All pinball features (ramp , flipper, slingshot, bumper and so on) are collider ready and ready to use.

    Pinball Creator asset is provided with 450 + missions but if you want you can create your own mission. The documentation clearly explains how to create your own.

    Thanks for your answer...
    I meant "colliders" on OUR objects !?! For example if I add my own ramp how complex is the collider ?

    In Pinball Creator asset ramp are separated in 3 parts : floor, left side and right side.

    Each part have a mesh collider.

    Hi,
    We have a little delay in the planning but we will try to submit the asset next week.

    We have made a new video to show the potential of this asset. We use model from our asset 2.5D Medieval Fantasy Environment.

    Nice demo! Thanks for showing us the potential. It looks really good.

    I was hoping for an update letting us know when this was going to be released, but did you mean you already submitted last week? Or will be submitting this week? Next week? Sorry, your above statement was clear.

    Thanks!

    I had a quick question. How well does this work on mobile?

    Edit to add: I can't wait for this! :) Also, I would love to see a tutorial of a more complex pinball game similar to the one that uses the fantasy pack in your previous post.

    Hi StevenPicard,

    Currently, we have been focus on the desktop version. For example, we choose linear color space rendering.

    The pinball we’ve create on the last video is as complex as The Fantasy Pinball.
    The Medieval Environment probably gives the impression that the pinball is more complex.

    Inside the asset, we have create a complet documentation to help create complex pinball.

    I had a couple questions:

    1. Does this support multiple flippers (more than two and of different sizes)
    2. Does (or will) this support upper levels and lower levels (similar to Black Knight (upper level) or Black Hole (lower level)?
    3. Will this support (eventually) an analogue scoring display (the old style before the digital display)?

    I am anxious for this. Thanks!

    Pinball Creator actually don't have analogue scoring display and lower level.
    On the other hand Pinball Creator support multiple flippers and upper level .

    Thanks for the reply. Upper level is more interesting to me than lower, anyways.

    Yes, you could easily add custom models. Just import your models inside unity. Then you could use them. We have made an example using 3d model taken from our asset Medieval Fantasy environment.
    We hope you could see your Fx Pinball style tables you've made with Pinball Creator :)
