Description
This is a map I made to test out creating a custom style. It is pretty much just an aesthetic project, with an easy puzzle built in.

Any feedback, especially on the visuals, is much appreciated.

Very nice.

You're right, it is a skybox. A 3D skybox, that is. I just used the sky_white, however I edited the fog settings in the skybox such that the fog was gold - this allowed the sky to appear yellow (this is the method Valve uses in their a4 maps). For help using 3D skyboxes, I highly reccomend this tutorial by Lpfreaky90: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxYhaAupbtA
Make sure you do the skybox last! Otherwise you have to re-align your geometry with the skybox.

I really like the visuals in this one and the clear puzzle. How did you make the yellow light? It's a skybox, no? But how did you make it yellow? There's only a few to choose from the Portal 2 Sky List.

Very nice logical puzzle! Thanks!

They all send transmissions that I want to be seen. Usually this is of upcoming maps or niche information. So I guess it's more 'mapping reasons' than personal ones.

Ok so I was randomly playing some of your old chambers and instead of finding that "place" I asked you about in your recent chamber now I find another "place" in this chamber from 2013. I think you've put a lot of these 'transmissions' in your maps, right? lol Keep doing that, it's fun. May I ask you if that's a personal reason or feeling involved? Thank you for your work, by the way, I really like your chamber/puzzles :)

Nice and easy.

I should apologize for not making that one clear enough. But I'm glad to hear you don't mind replaying.

Ahhh now I see. Wow, I did not notice that and did it wrong.
Oh well now I get to replay it - it is a fun enough map to "want" to replay. Thanks

The wall comes out to form a floor when the button is not being pressed. The 1st and 3rd preview images above show this. The puzzle then becomes figuring out how to do it so that the floor is available.
