    Glad you liked it. ;)

    I've become a fan of Stargate before playing to Istaria and the first thing I thought when I saw a travel gate for the first time was "It really looks like a Stargate", especially the Dragons' gates that are constantly rotating : the Lunus one with the 9 red runes (movie and SG1) and the Helian one with the 9 blue stones (SGA).

    This is one of the reasons why I haven't voted for changing the color of the portal, but for changing the ring color in Bristugo and Genevia, though I would make the blue ring a bit lighter.

    Noted that blue be a tad lighter. Those spark effects seems difficult if not impossible (but haven't given up) on the way the teleporter models are. But whilst looking at all the seperate parts, I did notice the inner trim strip is a unique piece. This would be more subtle than the other two:

    Yes! I love this version! the colour difference is visible, but not too overpowering!

    That's definitely much better than what was suggested before. It was super overpowering before but now it's notable without being glaring. :)

    Ok, the "Star Gate" doesn't seem possible. I've tried several effects for randomness. Here's what I came up with. I think I'm done and these are the final possibilities. These are all animated gifs so you can see how it truly looks like.

    http://istariareference.com/portals.asp

    Portal 1 was the original idea.
    Portal 2 is the same as Portal 1, except effects are on the outter ring.
    Portal 3 is the same effects as 1 and 2, except applied to the trim.
    Portal 4-9 are random effects, applied to trim.

    I used orange in the all the examples, but different colors will be applied to each of the 5 portals.

    It seems I can't redo/edit the poll on this page. Well I can, but it seems it will still remember everyone who voted. Even if I change the poll, those who've voted would not be able to again. I will likely put another poll on a different page for these later on.

    I have to say I really like either portal 1, portal 6, or portal 9. #6 because it stands out even with brown-on-brown, #9 because you can still tell it's brown but it's a bit more fancy lookin'. :D

    Edit: While staring at portal 8 I've come to appreciate it's fancy beauty, too... even if it's sort of more black than color.

    #8 is the electricity effect in game. What was suggested for the Star Gate or sparks effect wasn't possible to do it the way it was suggested, but #8 is the closest way with shaders. The images on the page will stop/restart after a while, so they seem jerky, but they are continous in game (unlike in the image).
