Gotta agree with that. Two definitely looks realistic with the arch that forms a gate (even if there is a break in the middle at the top). And four, yeah that one looks extremely awesome.

I like 1 and 4, since it could be like this, you have to stand in it, and then the gate has to fire up, and phase you away(?) to the other gate, instead of it being just "poof, you're on the other side", plus, it also makes it harder to escape an onslaught ;)

4 definatley does it for me, but what would be cool to have on 4 is the ability to look through the phase gate whilst standing infront of it and see what is on the other side, that would be truly amazing.

on a side note just want to say job well done with natural selection 2 devs, you are really pushing the bar and I for one am looking foward to seeing what else you guys come up with, I've been a big fan of you guys since the beginning of NS1, spent many a sleepless night spitting fade goo balls at the enemy lol. Anyway, thanks for an amazing game.

a little combination between 1(base), 2(lasers), and 4(portal-ish gate) will look good, if not, number 1 and 2

Use 4, it's the coolest. But 3 is also really great.

1 or 2. 1 looks a bit more realistic, as it might be hard to contain the power these things use, but 2 on the other hand has a neat system to keep it contained, while having those little beams in it, supposedly to see whos travelling through.

I think 4 is my favorite though it would be cool if you could enter it from four sides not just two.

I love all of them but I think 1 could have the most awesome animation of as the person runs into it you see them like dicintigrate into like bright glowing yellow sort of dust that dissapears and disperses in the blue and the reverse as they come back. Could be very awesome particle effect. I also like 1 because of how right angled it is and beefy it has presence which i think suits the marrines

Although 2 is cool it seems a little plain although i do like the laser concept.

Number 4 is nice but i think the shape is way to natural. Circuler and soft shapes are more for the Aliens they are natural shapes and man are more for right angles and beefyness.

Number 3 is a nice combanation between 1 and 2 but again i think it is a little thin at the sides but again i do like the the way the base floor of it glows that sort of blue very effective on the eyes.

Overall I would say the best option is 1 due to it being a realistic size and is realistically open for marrines to pile in but bring in concepts from the other designs such as the glowing floor from 2 and perhaps a little bit of a static looking sort of mini lightning effect im noticeding 4 in to give it that extra bit of chatecter. Also the deepness of the blue in 2 is much nicer on the eyes so pherhaps deepen the blue of number 1.

Three is my personal favorite. The more digital portal design is really cool.

I'd prefer NS1's PG but... can you just walk into this PG or do you have to use? Also can more then 1 person phase now?

If I had to choose I'd just have to say 2 because it's a bit slim, and looks like something FM would use. 4's portal is cool but it looks a bit rough, like maybe its a prototype.

I choose... CHARMANDER! I mean #2.

number 2 is my favorite since it's the most believable and practical one, both to use and in terms of imaginary technology used to make it.
number 4 just seems too exaggerated and goes against the pros mentioned with number 2 above.

The 1st one. 3rd one would be great too if it was a bit bigger to fit the size of a marine. Simple thin lasers of #2 are a bit generic in my opinion, but still looks really great on this concept.

i love 4 ^^ but could'nt you use a mixture of them :P like 3 would be the base model, 2 is when its been upgraded, and 4/1 could be if its upgraded again for machinery or two marines at once OR for a particularlly fat marine :D

I'd have to say 1 it feels more down to earth and something real. Just a self contained box of mass to allow travel.

1 would look ******* awesome in game. It would be nice to see some volume to that kind of effect. It looks really original. The other ones with the flat gate just look generic.

This device has a much shorter range but is a lot faster at teleportation than the Infantry portal that takes time to bring in reinforcements from a much greater distance.
This fast travel device will instantly teleport personnel from A to B.
