Description
This is a map to experiment with creating a custom style. You guys may remember my last one; "Prioritize". I wanted to try and work on the feedback that I got from that.

Also, this one is more puzzle-oriented. Should be about medium difficulty. No ninja moves required, just logic.

I tried pretty hard to make the skybox-world transition look natural, but I just couldn't get it. I went and worked on other things for a while, but today I stumbled across the .bsp and decided that I may as well upload it.

Nice puzzle!

Well, it's a different look to the wall and doesn't have any connections linked to it, so it's fair to assume that it'll operate itself. But I'll change it.

Bayram is absolutely right, this is a deus ex machina[en.wikipedia.org] or "god from the machine." I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how I could ever reach the exit, only to find that when I got close, something happened that I had no way of anticipating. The deus ex machina is bad form in novels, movies, and plays, and it's bad form here too.

Fine work. I loved it. Good puzzle and nice looking chamber. The surprise at the end was an eye opener.

Based on the openness and lack of test chambers and tubes carry cubes, i'd say that GLaDOS has gotten rid of everything and is rebuilding the facility from scratch. Or because it just looks cool.

I did a blind run of your map and recorded it.
The video description shows them in the order they are played in the video to help you find it.

Nice map, thumbs up. The puzzle is not too hard, I would agree with medium difficulty. There were two things I did not like: one, the portalable surface in the wall over the light bridge is so bright that I thought for a long time that it was an observation room, and two, I think the light bridge should go to a platform that actually exists while you're thinking about the solution rather than magically appearing when you get there.
