First hammer map!

Sorry I can't think of a better name for this, but yeah, my first map made entirely in Hammer. With a little help from Tmast98 FelixGriffin & yishbarr, I finally got it to publish and should work properly now. I decided I'd try and give it the dilapidated look, it's not a long map since I'm kinda new to doing maps this way.

The map was fun but I must confess I didn't find out what half the elements were supposed to do. But, I made it to the end, so hurray for both of us!

Congrats on your first map. There are some issues that hopefully you can learn from for your next one: 1) Texture problems. 2) When you fall into the goo, you don't die, you're just stuck there until you reset. 3) The blue gel isn't necessary. If you're supposed to use it to bounce the turrets, you can save time and effort fiddling with the orange funnel and just portal behind them instead.

Well done for a first map. I enjoyed it.

Not bad for a first attempt at a Hammer map...

Keep everything aligned. Every unit and detail is important.
If you're going after a particular theme, I suggest checking out Valve's maps. After you've got your basic test, the rest is basically artwork.
Learn about the different lights: what they do, and how you can control them.
Use a soundscape (env_soundscape) to add a pleasant background noise (so that we don't suspiciously hear nothing when we're standing still).
Finally (if you're daring enough), get technical! That's what separates great Hammer maps from the run-of-the-mill PTI maps (including maps made with mods).

Excellent job for a first map!
I'm sure some veterans will tell you there are some minor detail issues, but I'm sure you'll get better in practice, and it looks great to me! The puzzle was a bit easy, but very clever! Nice job! I look forward to seeing more of your maps!

Nice Map for a first hammer map a little bit easy though. A good idea will to look at HMW's overgrown maps if you wanna see how to do it damn near perfect.(or vanilla Portal 2 maps) It was a little easy, but hamer is hard to get used to so i guess its good to start basic. Thumbs up.

I hit the like button, because I want you to make more maps and because it is good for a first time but this was not a really good map ( sorry... ). You were not really paying attention at your map, for exemple:
The first button wasn't in the floor, a bit floating in the air...
The ceiling texture wasn't a good texture for this.
The first model you put next to the button was bugging.
There was nodraw texture ( I guess ) inside the map!
The funnel needs to be more in the wall.
And don't use the same texture for walls and floors.

But the sky was good.

I hope it will help you to improve your next maps, because I really want to see more of your test chambers!
