Blink

Submitted by Thrikodius
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I made this special effect a while ago (few months) for a project cause I wanted a more original look to the Blink spell. It's inspired by Magebane's teleportation in Heroes of Newerth.

When used for a Blink type spell the duration should be set to 0.2 for the best effect.

UPDATE: Added target model to the portrait file (now called BlinkCaster_Portrait) and changed the preview

NOTE: Rename BlinkCaster_Portrait.mdx to BlinkTarget.mdx when importing.

    It is easy to recolor the old blink, but it is nice and I like it more than Blizzard's blink, mostly because of it's light blue color.
    I reward you with +rep, voting for approval and for rating of 4/5.

    Fantastic, looks great. Hopefully, this will replace Blizzard's blink model in many maps. I'm pretty tired of it, if you couldn't tell.

    Great model! I like it. I used it for my maps. It is here sorry only, that "Blink target" and "Blink caster" is identical. Well, I put 5/5...)

    Cool. I'll be using it because of the effects.
    I agree with the others. It is better than blizzard's blink effect.
