Well Vented

This puzzle is based on Pneumatic Diversity Vents. There are also Tractor Beams included as well as Light Bridges and Fizzler Fields. Minimal hazards, but some parts are pretty tricky when it comes to getting that cube. Medium to hard difficulty.

Another brilliant map with some novel clever new (to me) ideas. I only came across Pneumatic Diversity Vents the other day and I really like the various ways you use them in this... ooops, just looked at time, almost 1am hear, time for a kip. Cheers

Excellent, challenging and fun! Great mix of vent and tractor beam, often on the same cube. Thanks!

The ending threw me a little bit. I thought the cube would go thru the grating when the tractor is on. I was trying a fantasy solution until I saw the cube rest on the grating with the tractor on :)

Not too difficult, and a blast to play.

I enjoyed it. The first two chambers were the most challenging, but it was fun throughout.

Please try mine, guys:

@Dragon: In a sense yes. If you're looking at the object, or element, then the trigger it is "receiving" will be inverted. So the only place for them is between Trigger and Object. Just look at it the same way as a bus line with a NOT gate on it. A1 becomes a 0 and visa versa. Oh, and also, it can be used to make a pellet dispenser stop dispensing once a pellet catcher catches a pellet. Sorry if that last sentence was like a mouthful pellets.

Alright, lemme see if I got this. NOT gates pretty much invert the functions of objects?

Yes, building such from scratch would chew into your object limit. I guess that's why I like the BeeMod. Especially when it has NOT gates as well. Tricky but sometimes useful.

As a side note to the elegance of how BEEMOD does things, you can build an OR gate in the standard puzzlemaker using multiple lasers, a reflective cube and a laser catcher. You point all the lasers at the cube which faces into the catcher. Each item you'd like to have trigger an event(say, drop a cube) actually activates a laser and the catcher activates the event(drops the cube). It's somewhat clumsy to manage and it screws up the labling, but it does work if you need it to and don't have access to BEEMOD or Hammer. Be aware that it does chew into your entity allocation, so small networks like this are better than big ones, but how often would you need like 10 buttons dropping the same cube or something? Common usage would only be 2 or 3 triggers at most.
