    Found this list on Steam of some of the censored artwork and voice overs:

    https://steamcommunity.com/app/44212...998942/?ctp=18

    All Tables:
    -- pop bumpers miss bottom parts (on which ball is roll to trigger upper sliding part)
    here is link to how bumpers should look on High Speed 2: Getaway for example :

    YouTube™ Video: The Getaway HS2 pinball repair: pop bumpers
    Views: 751
    Slow motion video of pop bumper action. Shows wafer movement and rod and ring assembly action.


    Fish Tales:
    -- added bubbles near pelican's pipe on sides art of cabinet
    -- edited text on 2 cans on backglass
    -- pipe removed from mouth of character near top rollovers
    -- cigar removed from mouth of fisherman at center of playfield art
    -- art on sides of table head: mermaids belly is covered with scales instead of be regular human skin

    Medieval Madness:
    -- on backglass cigar is removed from Troll's mouth
    -- on backglass blood is removed from King's sword
    -- on backglass blood is removed from sword in "Medieval Madness" (letter "i") text logo
    -- on backglass girl's outfit in left lower corner is edited "from bikini to full armor"
    -- on sides of cabinet blood is removed from sword
    -- during Video mode on DMD text "child" and "calf" changed to "taken" [did not cheked yet]
    -- "VO's using the version free from pertinent content of the "I'm Lord Howard Hurtz" line"

    Junk Yard:
    -- on backglass cigar is removed from Bob's mouth
    -- on playfield cigar is removed from Bob's mouth
    -- on back inside of cabinet cigar is removed from Bob's mouth
    -- on backglass upper part of girl's in thub chest art is covered with more bubbles
    -- some voices/sounds during Toilet shots in Family mode [need to check which ones]
    -- plunger rod and textures of cabinet around it are invisible, so you can even see floor through the hole

    Would it be so bad to update Pinball FX 3's rating to a T? I have no issues with my kids playing these tables as is. I'm more afraid of what their friends can find on the internet and show them on their phones than a woman in a metal binkini on a pinball table.

      This censorship really sucks and puts a damper on things and future tables to come.Last i read Zen was looking into a solution.That better not be code for stalling because they don't plan on having a solution.The only proper solution is uncensored tables for everyone.
      Make it happen.

          My kids play the game and I have no nostalgia with any of these games so I'm cool with the censorship on console. However, I think the option to turn censorship OFF should be there for non-child accounts. Censoring an artist's vision should be a personal choice and not a limitation of the platform. Thankfully, I'm cool either way.

            No way.Not in the current situation.Really is unacceptable.And Playboy is a whole other issue because it is a licensed table.Waits to be seen whether Zen will be able to do Terminator(maybe that is too violent for Zen, as well), Star Trek and whatnot.

            Just came across a video on the tube which talks about the censorship problem : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxlkOHX-6yk

                Censored!

                I am somewhat late to the party but i only just recently go around to actually playing these tables yesterday on the XBX, and to say i was surprised when the word censored appeared on the DMD in MM would be a understantment, now it is not the end of the word, and i personally have these tables on Steam via PBA and FX3, and on the PS4 again via PBA....but the option to switch the child lock off on the console versions would i think please everyone, parents can leave it on the default and grown up's can chose to view the horror's of a fantasy digitised dragon breathing fire at a digitalised knight, and somehow continue with life. lol

                So come on Zen, you know it is the best option, and when you win the love of all the pinball enthusiasts you got that love forever, and that includes their wallet.

                  Unfortunately, it's up to the ESRB. Zen was in hot water with them, because of an inappropriate image was found in Infinite Minigolf in 2017. If they mess up again, then ESRB will most likely discontinue rating their content. By policy Sony, MS, and Nintendo will refuse their content if it isn't ESRB rated.
