This is a first attempt at a Hypergate design (without the Hypergate script) as part of the Monthly build challenge for January 2012.
In the Zip there are 2 version, a Full detailed version that has 12 prims, and a low detailed design that substitutes several prims for a single 256 x 256 texture.
The low detail version doesn’t look as good, but if you are running up against prim limits, then it can be used to save a couple of prims.
The script for the hypergate should be placed in the blue ball on the pedestal so that when touched it will jump the user to the destination.Download: Hypergate Pad - Downloaded 169 times
Thanks to the suggestion of Maria, I have reduced the number of prims needed for this from the full 12 prims down to just 5 prims (yes, less than half the number of prims). This is “Super Low Detail” version: Download: Super Low Detail Hypergate Pad - Downloaded 62 times
