Just so we're on the same page, don't sell anything with any of my restorations or pattern recreations on it. Feel free to share your files for everybody to print them themselves, though, of course.

Hello @Laserschwert, of course I won't unless I have approval for it :)

If I wanted to do it without approval, I wouldn't have shared the project with all of you in this forum ! 

 

My first goal was to do it for myself so it is.  I just want to see what will be the result from the spanish printing company and the average cost of a print.

I will surely try pack.ly to have a comparison.

 

And for the files (to answer @ThunderPeel2001), I'm thinking about creating a Git repo or something like that with all files (manuals, PDF, etc) for the different boxes I will recreate so everyone will have access to.  I already done it for the MI1 manual.

 

Stay tuned, results in 2 weeks ! (box printing is launched)

Looks great! There are a few typos, though...

Hi time !  Sorry I guess the images upload didn't go well so I have uploaded them again.  Go it about the typos in Front box (Yale and . at the end)

It was a POC so I will have another one fixed soon ! Stay tuned !

There are a few more: on the front, "galatic" should be "galactic"; on the back, "environment" should (I think, though any reference pics I found had different text here so I can't be sure it's not just odd phrasing) be "environments", "others systems" should be "other systems", and I think the colon just before that last one should really be a semicolon, but that's being rather picky!

Thanks for the feedbacks !  Corrected !  

Will have some serious sessions about corrections before going live :) 

 

@ThunderPeel2001 Well it feel the same and even more solid really ! It comes from a company in Spain.  I had a second one from them and it looks even way better than the first one.  They admitted there was a printing problem with the first one, send me another one free and it looks incredible and really strong ! But as said, you have to order 100 (but the prices are really correct !)

 

I didn't find any online service where you can buy those big boxes as trong as this one (2mm thick).  Pack.ly only propose 0.5mm.... And I didn't hear it was enough quality for big boxes.

 

I'm finishing another one :)

Just checked the back and the DOS version is 'environment' without S...I agree it feels weird :) 

The Amiga and Atari versions have other texts as you mentioned ! (Didn't even see this since I'm working on DOS version)

You're welcome! I guess they are referring to the game's world as a whole as a single 3D environment, rather than the individual rooms. That does feel like a stranger way of phrasing it to me, but I had considered it as an option which is why I tried to check the original box. Didn't think to search specifically for the DOS one!
