Thirty downvotes? What is wrong with those test subjects???

Great work. The puzzles were well constructed and the style was amazingly done. A big thanks for mapping!

Super fun. I didn't really like the fling puzzle because it kept feeling like I was going too far for the middle panel. Laser puzzle was great, and so was the funnel puzzle.

the first part of the test was frustrating, very clever with the lasers tho. i liked the 2nd part a lot more but the first part was bad though

Why would any1 downvote this? The first part of the first test is ok, nothing special but single portal mechanics can be really fun if done properly expecially because i bet lot of people can't bring the cube from the 2nd chamber back without realizing that the orange portal doesn't fizzle :P
The laser puzzle is awesome, you think that you need to use tricks like cube pointing up do the ceiling while it's just a matter of placing the blue portal in the right spot, really nice one.
The 2nd puzzle is awesome too, I don't think I've ever seen single portal combined with funnels since it's an extremely early game mechanic, + the final ball catch was great! The only thing i could criticise is that the ligh feels a bit weird and yellowish, I'm sure it's intended but a standard color probably would have been better. Great job anyway, gonna play all your chambers!

Very good set of tests (although less/softer music would be appreciated).

Well basically you can use tutorials all over the internet, on Valve Developer Community page, or you can check some vmfs. of some good overgrown maps, as an example.

Oh, I know how to create Test Chambers, I just want them to look old and overgrown. Thanks for the info
