Subspace Vortex Poll

<< < (9/9)

Novachen:
Have to admit, that I liked the original proposal much more.  :blah:

But well... actually that whole thread seems actually pointless for me in the end. Where was the point in it if the proposal was not even final? :confused:

perihelion:
Ok, I’d like to change my vote from the ASW effect to the newest version. The effect in the Hecate animation looks really good!

Situation evolved quite rapidly and Gamma decided to redesign his warpmap again after the poll being declared. His new product vastly differs from older version [proposed in the poll]. The poll eventually fulfilled completely different purpose, and provided Gamma with feedback essential for current version to happen, and as it's quality contribution of the community supported by general feedback, we decided that it meets expectations of the FSU.

AV8R:

While I really like the new subspace animations and how they are reversible (moving inward for going into subspace and moving outward for exiting subspace), if I had a only one criticism about it, it would be this: I don't like the central aperture itself (the white area in the center of the subspace animation which represents the event horizon or "hole" into subspace) which to me is not large enough for the ships passing through it, causing most of the outer parts of the ship to disappear/reappear in the blueish moving periphery of the subspace aperture - which to me looks less convincing (a little fake). The older spinning subspace animation that was in use for so long had a much larger white aperture that allowed any ship passing through to have all of the outer parts ship appear/disappear into the white "hole" in space which visually made more sense.

Like I said, don't get me wrong, I like the new animation; the fact that's it's reversible and that it looks more like the original retail animation. But the too-small central aperture is a bit of an immersion breaker.  :(

+ Rennie Ash +:
I prefer the proposed one that looks closer to retail version, currently.

Another suggestion could be to reduce the amount of flat white circle in the spiral version, as to me that is distracting and reduces the grandeur of the ship that is entering//exiting it.
Perhaps there could be a middle ground considering some see the original one has too little white space ;p

Edit : Looks like I should have read page 2. That one looks really nice, the colour is not too purple, not too cyan
