White Room

This is a test in a white room, hence the name of the test, derived from the color - which is white.

Omg, must remove camera to prevent this obvious ninja solution. Thanks for telling. :)

I discovered a ninja solution to this puzzle. Enter, take out the camera, get it to the main area, get the cube on the button above the pit, shoot a portal in the exit room, when the cube falls down, put it in the corner of the pit, put the camera on top of it, get on top of the camera, jump up with the cube(it works!), put a portal horizontally in line with the pit, in profile with the exit door button, put the cube next to it(slightly in it, but not falling in), jump through, and at the last second, put the portal that was in the exit room on the tractor beam. If you have done this correctly, the cube will be rising in profile with the exit button, and you can put a portal in the right place to make it move towards the button. Congratualations. You have pulled off a ridiculously complex ninja solution.

Also, I'll just leave this here . Don't ask me how this happened because I have no idea.

The "overgrown style" was added because of josepezdj's Hammer remix, I thought it would fit well. In a complex chamber I wouldn't use it because it would be distracting, here there are very few elements to pay attention to though. I'm aware that it can take a while to solve, if this doesn't work well I could go back to default Portal 2 style.
Thanks for the feedback.

Good job with the aesthetics! I think it could have used a bit more color (foliage, stuff seen through windows, etc) but the ambient effects added a lot. The PeTI editor doesn't give many choices as to the color pallete of a test chamber, but Hammer gives you free reign to "paint" your chamber into any color you want. I realize it's supposed to be a "white" chamber, but it can still be hard on the eyes, especially for a chamber that can potentially take a long time to solve.

Well, I was trying something that, ultimately, would have never worked, but would have been cool if it was possible: I was trying to use the 2-drop from the exit together with the 1-drop below the exit to add up to a 3-fling up into the tractor beam. Didn't quite consider using the 3-drop near the entrance instead.

There's a fair bit of timing involved in this puzzle! More than I expected.
Also, I noticed that, due to the sheer white-ness of this chamber, it was a bit difficult to see whether the fizzlers were down at a distance. I ended up spamming portals at them rather than trying to decipher upon inspection.

Don't mind me, just shamelessly promoting my take on it :) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=331782712

After playing josepezdj's remix, the solution here came quite fast, but that's a clever puzzle and I prefer the "simple-white" version ;) (even if it was a bit weird after the impressive aesthetical work in remix)

At last ! This test took me a while to solve :)

After some months I decided to give this one a second chance. It still took me a while but I eventually solved it exactly as it's shown in josepezdj's video!

I must say I was slightly disappointed, though. I've always had a hunch that the cube button had to be activated while I was up inside the funnel... but I've been lost for ages on what to do next... Turns out it all comes down to finding a portalable wall above the exit door to do a cheap funnel trick with... >:(

I really didn't expect the level to involve any kind of funnel trick like that, so the cube dropper not being aligned to the exit door's button was totally misleading to me. I'd have favourited the map otherwise because the first part was very clever...

OK, time to play josepezdj's version! :)
