Future Pinball is a real time
Pinball Development System.
It allows you to design and play your
very own pinball simulation in True real time 3D. It uses Advanced
Physics to provide the best possible Simulation of a true to life
Tables are built up out of Standard components
(Plastics, Pegs, Bumpers, Lights etc..) which are placed onto
the playfield via the Editor. Objects like Surfaces, Lights and
Rubbers are shapeable within the editor and generated real-time
when the table is played. Other objects (Bumpers, Flippers, Gates,
Triggers, Targets etc..) use pre-made 3d Models
(of which there is a nice selection of each type).
The Table logic is scripted in Visual Basic Scripting
(via the Microsoft Scripting Technology's built into Microsoft Windows).
Scripting is designed to be simple but flexible enough to allow
a wide vararity of Original Games to be created. Only a limited
subset of the Visual Basic Scripting Language is used as a lot
of extra functionality is provided by the game engine.
Full Sound / Music Support is also provided with
Music Channels to allow cross fading.
As Future Pinball is a Game Construction Program
it contains some advanced concepts which may require a little
time (and patience) to learn and fully understand (such
as computer graphics and scripting concepts).
