Description
Finally here!
Happy Canada Day from Aperture North! As a surprise, we're giving you an updated version of Pure Intellect: Part 2, for your playing pleasure! Now, due to potentially apocalyptic circumstances [beyond our control], HDR compile kept on crashing, so if you are picky on maps without HDR, go play elsewhere. Also; because the original map was set in a large empty space, optimization was tricky, but I did the best I could. Even when I did get long compile working, the lighting didn't look as moody as on normal, so there.

Anywho, I don't like writing descriptions. But this map has everything. It's got a test, some exploration, and OMG! Logic_choreographed_scenes! Something that many a map on the workshop doesn't have! Also, this revision has been in the works since March, so I think that it's as good as it'll ever be. VERY hard to optimize something like this AFTER it's been built. Sorry for party-lagging. I've run out of things to add! Um, sorry about the preview image as well, I have no idea what resolution it's supposed to be, I just went off the dimensions from the web version. So I'm sick of the Underground for now; expect Wheatley's Detour II after this.

If you want to know, the primary songs that inspired this map were the Skrillex Orchestral Arrangement, Oxygene No. 4 by Jean Michael Jarre, Cat by C418, and all the A3 Songs from the Portal 2 soundtrack.

Also, about the exponent at the end of the title on the image: I realized that Pure Intellect abbreviated is PI, so when used with the exponent 2, it becomes Pi2, or Pi Squared! Hehe . . .
SPECIAL THANKS GO TO ALLOS, DELI73, AND TANGER2B FOR PLAYTESTING THE MAP. SPECIAL MENTION GOES TO THE COMMUNITY FOR OVER 2000 SUBS. YAY!
Map contains 1 musical easter egg. So there ya have it. I told you I hate writing descriptions, especially when it's 26 degrees Celsius outside. Ouch.
IMPORTANT!! Before you downvote, take a moment to comment on why you think this is bad! As a mapper, I always want to know what people don't like, so don't be afraid!

Really liked the map; however, I did not get on the last elevator fast enough and got caught in the door and had to restart; I don't guess there is a way to fix this other than get in the elevator as fast as you can. :)

@Ultiman9711: I've just completed all 18 of your maps and had a Blast. I really love the old style maps for some reason, they seem a little spooky "I guess". But I found no problems with all but the one called "Peer-Review" I made it to the large round room after taking the tractor beam over" but then I was lost or maybe that was the end.
You have done some Great work and I Thank you very much for all the good times I had playing. Thumbs up on all your maps and please keep up the good work. I look forward for more map from you, I am following you so keep them coming.
You do things different with your maps and that is what I like. 10/10

@Ultiman NSE I've seen people do that, also. And it would be very hypocritical of me to do exactly what I asked them not to do. Anyway, it is pretty weird that that happened. I don't know. For all I know, I could have watched a youtube play of it, and when looking for an idea, have that come up. Either way, it wasn't intentional. I am working on a replacement map for it, though, hopefully one that on't be unknowningly stolen :P

@Cjlerch: No worries man. Very uncanny how you had practically the entire puzzle replicated without your knowledge. Keep listening to comments though; it's good of you to follow through with them. I've encountered people who haven't and flipped out because of it. :)

Ultiman NSE, Thank you for informing me that my map was copied. It has been removed from the workshop, after I played Dilapidation, and it was an almost exact copy of the first map. It's embarrasing, really; I had no idea. I hadn't played Dilapidation before, honest.

@portalmaster: The Sphere is included in Part 3.
