Idea: New Table Size Dialog


Recommended Posts

Here's an idea that's been bouncing around my head.


A simple "new table" dialog when you hit Ctrl+N or File..New table. What the dialog would contain is a list of common table sizes, and a radio button option for a custom size.


That way, for recreation tables you don't have to backtrack to the vpforums thread for common table sizes, or google search. It's all there for you. Time saved!

but to redo a vp pin we really don't need to know the actual pin size

since most of vp ones differ so much I just look at the size in the editor

I think you are completely missing the boat here Faralos...

Actually, yes we should have standard sizes. Real machines had standard and widebody sizing. I would be nice to say that you want to re-create a Gottlieb wedgehead, select that option and the sizing for that cabinet would be input into VP.

That feature would be nice, it would also be nice to have a ruler tool so you can measure placement of objects.


Agreed. That could easily just be stuck on the vertical & horizontal edges, not unlike Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro.

so Itch are your templates sized proportionally?

or must we redo them then to fit the standards?

i see your point now and yeah it would be a great help then

 if all tables were sized correctly as I have seen some that looked huge

but really were just made to look bigger than their real life counterparts

and look odd due to that stretching

like my wall-e pin; that is supposed to have been a standard pin size

 but I made it into a widebody since that way it was easier to place the pf objects into it

 yes I know that pin ain't a real one but I found versions of it online and it looks thinner than my version

so I think that the original was made as a standard pin and not a fatty (widebody)


and yeah layering in vp would be the bees knees (the cats meow?) icing on the cake?

or however you want to compare it
