    It is a bluish-grey in Universe. Although that could be because the show is too cheap for good lighting. It also doesn't help to have the power go off almost every episode.
    I think its because in SGU they filmed the EH in HD or something. They talked about it on the 1.0 disc.

    Hey everyone!

    I made a new eventhorizon for the universe gate.
    I think it's better then the other one.

    Here is a pic about it:


    You can download it too:
    That's really nice, could you make a blue one for regular gates?

    And I think it should be blueish grey for universe gates.

    I honestly think it's a little too dark.

    Some angles in the show it does appear grey. You just have to look at a few episodes and see how people can get the idea.

    I just found it on YouTube and convert it for GMod (with permission), but I think I can recolor it.

    Edited:

    This is the original:

    Here is what i got at the moment:
    <-(For Universe gate) <-(For other gates)

    What do you think guys?

    The left one is better. The original kind of made me think of those old photographs, with the brownish grey tint.

    Ohhh. That makes more sense now. Well, the one for regular gates looks really, really good(very visually appealing and highly detailed), but I still just like the original due to its similarity to most of the show :P That is, most of the show not counting that one scene from the very first episode where the gate is dialled and they show the "old" vortex and EH that looks like a massive blob.

    (Wall of text too silly version)You have succeeded in making an EH that looks better than canon.

    It's not absolutely necessary, but more people might find out about it if you make one.

    Why have different EH's? I think the left one would be good for all of them. (Barring the Infinity one, of course)

    This. Milkyway and Pegasus are bright blue, Universe is as if they sapped some of the color away.
    And as far as I can tell, Pegasus gates' event horizons are the same as the Milkyway gates'.

    It's not much of a noticeable difference. Compare.
    (Google Images)

    Pretty much the standard EH effect for most of the series.


    Same statement as above.

    So really, the problem is the normal Stargate pack EH is too bright. You can clearly see that while the Milkyway EH is a deep blue, the other one is a bit brighter. It's not really too different.

    -Somewhat unrelated-
    Maybe if the wormhole is more stable, the event horizon appears brighter and more bluish. I mean, it makes sense. Overlooking the fact that the SGC doesn't have a DHD, how many problems has SG-1 had with gates malfunctioning? How many in Atlantis? Finally, it's only been a season and take a look at Time in SGU! It was so unstable through that flare that the EH began flickering!
    And then look at it: SGU has the darkest, almost colorless event horizon. Milkyway gates appeared deep blue. And Pegasus gates appeared bright blue.

    Perhaps, or they just tried to match the different chevron colours a little for pegasus and Universe.

    Yes, because stargates are real and that EH is totally not CG, they just dialed and filmed it.


    The reason of the dark EH is because the whole show is dark-tinted (i fucking hate that), pretty much like a theme to fit destiny/the stargate. Whoever's making the SGU stargate should use the default EH. That's my opinion, off course.

    It's not that dark tinted all the time, and personally i like the SGU EH better than the original. But still i like the ligth blue kinda they somtimes use in atlantis best.

    This is the first attempt for the ATL. one.
    And it's not animated still, just 1 frame from the 100.
