While working on one of my missions, I was greatly dismayed to discover that out of all of the "FX - Portal" effects, the devidian one was absent. Being the only portal effect designed for ground maps, it is much smaller and is very useful when making ground maps.

The affected mission is currently stalled due to the absence of this asset, as it is critical to the mission and I have yet to find an adequate replacement.

I wouldn't hold your breath. You'll simply have to use something else or stop making the mission.

What exactly do you need it for? We might be able to suggest a work around.

I'm still determined to get the affected mission done, but it's hard to find something that produces quite the same effect.

What I'm looking for is something about the same size, so it can still be used even in confined spaces, with at least a similar effect. It was to be used for a similar purpose to the original; a time rift. The Breen cryo mist could be used for part, but there's still the issue of the main FX.

Don't we have the Guardian of Forever portal in the Foundry? I thought I saw it when I was going through all the detail objects. Would that work?

I don't think so. I had to make a guardian out of rocks and one of the other effects.

Using the Guardian of Forever wouldn't work for what I have in mind. It has to be a small portal with no physical pieces only a few meters in diameter.

A shame that the Guardian of Forever is also missing, but you could chalk that up to the restriction on it's planet.

I'll put a request in for the Devidian Portal FX to be added. Still, I can't promise if/when it might be added.
