    Default Atlantis Gate Screensaver

    Has anyone downloaded this off of the Atlantis section on SciFi.com? Its the first promo gate we see of Atlantis (bluish-green one). Its pretty cool, it just the gate and light spinning in the inner track one constellation to the next activating each of the chevrons until the whole gate lights up. No whoooosh thingy or event horizon but still pretty cool. Wonder if thats what its going to be like on the show?

    yes, i downloaded it. It looks pretty cool....

    Also, i realize that It's probably only like that because it's just a wallpaper....but wouldn't it be cool if the event horizon was the cooler light blue swirlyness with the ripples done differently like this?

    I have both that Desktop and Screensaver. I think it would be cool if the Atlantis gate dailing system worked like that.

    As for the event horizon looking swirling like on the wallpaper, that would be cool, but unessesary.

    I've downloaded it, but haven't gotten around to installing it. I'm excited to see the dialing sequence of the new gate -- if this it.

    Dark Helmet: No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!

    Col. Sandurz: Prepare for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, light speed is too slow.
    Col. Sandurz: Light speed too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we'll have to go right to...Ludicrous speed!
    Col. Sandurz:Ludicrous speed! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't think the ship can take it.

    I just installed it. Not to impressive as a dialing sequence, but fun none-the-less!

    I think the dialing sequence of the Atlantis is similar (if not identical) to the one seen in the early Atlantis commercials (which were aired around the seventh season finale of SG-1). I read somewhere (maybe on the GateWorld Atlantis page, I'm not sure) that the Atlantis gate spins, albeit at a much faster rate than the SGCs and in the commerical, the inner track was spinning, but the one in the screensaver was not.

    I got it to work... it's kinda stupid... it's not even the Atlantis gate. Some fish swim and the gate dials with lights instead of rotating the ring.

    Actually, In Atlantis, the prop for the new gate doesn't rotate, so I'm pretty sure it won't rotate on the show either, because that would require CG every time the gate is activated. I'm pretty sure the dialing sequence will be like the one in the screensaver, but hopefully will look a little better.

    Where did you find this out? Cause I KNOW I read that the gate will spin, just faster than the SGC gate. I'll try to find it.

    Okay, according to the GateWorld page, it said that the inner track spins in a pattern of light, I just hope it's not as cheesy as the screensaver though.

    What I read was the inner track doesn't spin physically, but it forms a track made of light, and that is what spins, and because it's made of light, it spins faster than the SGC gate which has a physical inner track.

    This is the new gate, New and improved gate, mind you. Instead of actually rotating the gate, It's a series of lights that have been programmed in by a model shop...........You can actually wiggle the Stargate. It's a problem for us now that we have to figure out. We have to spray it with some kind of anti-wiggling stuff I guess.
    This is a quote from the dvd preview. Interpret it however you want to. For me it seems like it will not rotate, but rather the "light", and not the entire track, will rotate just like in the screensaver. The fact that it wiggles, shows that it's not sturdy enough to have a physically moving inner ring, so if the entire track(in light) rotates they would need to do it in CG. If it was done in CG, then they wouldn't need a model shop to program the lights.

    The fact that it wiggles also shows they just don't build Stargate's like they used to
