"Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run - Ride and Queue Details SPOILERS!!!

Projectors and screen are independent of the motion base for enhanced parallax.
Any details available on resolution and frame rate? I have to admit I was hoping that Flight of Passage
would be "just a bit" higher resolution. It is almost there. (still spectacular!) I am a bit of a nerd for this idea that crazy
resolutions and frame rates will make us feel like we are seeing reality. You know, 8k, 16k, 120FPS and up,
no jitter, no aliasing, etc.

I know this is being "real time" rendered, which is awesome, computer game visuals can be so intense
these days.

Anyway, any info on the display tech would be welcome if you can share it, thanks! :)

Now this... this is the content I come onto these forums for. I need to change my signature to "I heart Martin".
I hope you know I wasn't saying you didn't have the plans, I know you did. I was just making a comment on your trademarked tightlipped-ness versus SWGalaxysEdge's disregard for caution 😂
..what you didn't like my sketch?

If I may ask: How would they rate the attraction? Was it impressive, e-ticket-worthy, or just fun?
...they're a fan and were impressed. They said if you are a die hard SW fan, the ship layout thing might disappoint you - liberties with how you load from the wrong way, not going up/down the ramp, etc. As far as the ride, they said the more you ride it, the better it gets.

I’m wondering if they will have an on ride photo of everyone in the cockpit or not. Seems like a no brainer but I don’t know how you would do it with the big screen.

Probably a wide angle lens hidden somewhere in the dash or in the windshield.

I think the better question would be how you fit it in story wise. Possibly as a "Wanted" style poster if you screw up the Falcon, or Hondo commemorating your successful mission if you perform well.

Does it really need to fit into the story if it just shows up in your Photopass library? Have a lightspeed transition include a flash and it's done. It would also help the inevitable problem of everyone wanting a photo in the cockpit.
 
So does the chess board actually do anything? I'm starting to think it doesn't. Also it seems like all the people who have gotten a chance to ride have seen the Coaxium train heist so I'm worried they dropped the other two missions but I'm holding out hope

I doubt it does anything beside maybe lights and sounds.

Or maybe they're holding the other two missions for later release. This would help keep lines down from people trying to get all three missions during their trip. And it'd allow them to market new missions in the future. Missions 2 and 3 could be late 2020 or 2021.
