Noob track creation

For PS3 Pinball Arcade there are currently only 3 tracks. From what I understand its on me to make them, and that takes submission points, 10 per track. Obviously i'd like to submit to some of the many others on the game, so I guess that means creating them. Im but a mere newb in these parts so thats gonna take awhile to build up that kind of submission points. There's a ton of them that need added too.
Any advice on how to make this go any smoother? Mistakes made that you'd like to pass down? Am i understing all this correctly, anything else I need to know?

    Hey RedDawn (Great Movie),

    My guess is that the three tracks created were for the free tables. If your comfortable with the track rules, the track founders can replicate the rules for the other tables. These are called derivative tracks. Any track founder can make derivative tracks from the original track. The names of the founders are listed in italics underneath the track name / image. Creech is banned from the site but @timmell is an active member. Michael aka Timmell is the host of the monthly program 'Settle It On The Screen' and a pinball fan. I tagged Mike see if he can help add the tables for you, without having to have you pledge submission points.

    Dont wish to talk you or anyone out of playing it... But I highly recommend the PS4/XboxOne or PC platforms, if you really want to enjoy the experience.

    The real reason the PS3 version of PA didnt get any love here, is because the mechanics are just horrible. Half second delays on the flippers, and the game crashes on some tables unexpected, with no patching/update fixes whatsoever. Also, new table released have not been available on PS3, even before they lost the license to Williams/Bally.

    @RedDawn @MyOwnWorstEnemy and @TWIN GALAXIES I'm a creator of these tracks but I cannot find or create any derivative tracks to add other tables for this title.

    Is it a matter of just not knowing exactly how to? or a bug of some kind

    It's a bug. Timmell is indicating that he's not able to create derivatives. He should be able to. With regret, if anyone tries to create new tracks now, they won't get filed together under the same category and instead, a new category will be created. This topic in (category filing portion) part was discussed at some length in the past and @SincerelyFranny indicated back then that TG would create new tracks as needed if this ever came up. For now it's a waiting game until TG/Franny can take a look at this.


    Franny: are you able to creative or arrange the creation of derivatives on PS3 for the following tables?

    White Water, Harley Davidson, Bride of Pinbot, Central Park, Bram Stokers Dracula, Starship Troopers, Attack from Mars, Medievil Madness, , Judge Dredd, Taxi, Terminator 2, Twilight Zone


    Thanks

    ps. I second Marc's suggestion of trying to play TPA on PS4, Xbox or PC if you can. The game play is remarkable on these platforms.

    If it would be possible to copy the tracks for seasons 1-6 from the PS4 version that would be ideal, in case someone else comes along and wants to enter scores on tables that I dont have.
    I imagine the time would come I will submit scores for all of them in that handful of tables listed above, and will want to start submitting for other tables I have, so I have included a list of all the ones I own, in case copying the 6 seasons from elsewhere is just not possible. I haven no idea what it entails, and I dont wish to press my luck, so if all that is too much work then by all means that handful of tables mentioned previously would suffice.

    Just a heads up when I check the rules... (For cross-platform consistency)

    Default Settings = "Tilt settings must be set to "ON or LOCK"

    Thanks you so much SincerelyFranny! Really appreciate it, I hope it wasnt too much trouble.

    Are the same tables added to PC version of Pinball Arcade as I have that version too.

    PS3 version plays differently if using HDMI and you swap over to Composite/Scart. The physics change totally so best advised to stick to either HDMI or Scart/Composite.. Don't swap between the 2 inputs. Use the one you feel comfortable with. Same with CRT and LCD TV's using Scart. That changes the physics too.

    I've been playing this for too long to know all this. lol

    I have got a video on Youtube regarding HDMI/Scart differences dated 6 years ago. Can post link if wanted.
