Playfield side walls have art. Automatic plunger. Has voice; an operator-selected Family Mode option removes profanity. Almost all playfield switches are inductive switches (not micro-switches) that are hidden below the top surface of the playfield. Factory-installed illumination: Backbox - all lamps are non-color-changing LEDs. Playfield - all lamps, including GI*, are individually addressable, fully color changing LEDs. Cabinet - side panels and front have all non-color-changing LEDs. *Prototype and early production games used GI lamp "towers" with 5 LED elements (one pointing in each cardinal direction, plus one pointing straight up). Later games switched back to regular single-element LED's for GI.
