Description
A few small puzzles put together to make a more complex one. Many puzzle elements are used multiple times. No ninja tricks or fast reactions needed, but the ability to place portals promptly is required.

Feedback is appreciated, I'm especially interested in knowing if you think the chamber takes too long, if the puzzles are too hard or too easy in general, if I make you do stuff unnecessarily, if it's possible to get trapped and have to restart the level, and if you think there's any solution of the puzzle that you don't think is the intended one.

Well put together and enjoyable. Nicely done!

Added another room at the start as a means of making it easier to figure out one of the rooms further into the chamber.

Updated to remove a couple of unintended solutions in the second side-room.

I updated the map. I changed the layout around in the first side-room. The puzzle is still the same, but it should no longer be possible to trap yourself in there by respawning the redirection cube when it's blocking the laser, and you can now see and access the redirection cube immediately after pressing its release button, instead of having to fling yourself into the funnel in the other room for a second time.

There should also now be a bit more leeway for the part in the second side-room (with the light bridge and the gel) that requires prompt portal placement, and it should now be easier to minimize the possibility of being bounced back into the room by blue gel you accidentally got on the walls when you're trying to get into the corridor to the next room.

Thanks for letting me know about that potential self-trap, I'll try to fix that when I next update.

For the light bridge room, the solution involves standing on the high button yourself, you don't need to take the cube up there.

I somehow managed to trap myself inside the second room. I blocked the laser with the privot cube, then went back into the second room and respawned the pivot cube. Then both the laser field and fizzler were enabled and there was no way out. Then I couldn't figure out the light bridge room -- no idea how to get the cube up to the top.

*spoilers* Very nice man! This puzzle took me a good 2 hours to solve because i kept getting stuck in the lightbridge room, then couldnt find the lightbridge button in the first hall tucked away in the corner. Very well put together!

Nah, I can block it by putting in glass between the portal surface and the funnel. You can usually block unintended solutions in Portal 2 maps by either removing a portal surface or putting glass, grating, or a laser field somewhere. I'm leaving the laser field thing though, I could fix it by moving the laser field out a bit so it covers the outside of the gap instead of the inside, but I think you're right, most players will find the correct solution there.

There's nothing you could do about that funnel jump I think, apart from moving the portalable surface further away from the funnel, but that might mess with the looks of the room. The lasers.. nothing you can do there I'm afraid but I'm guessing most people will go for the correct solution anway, I was just think in all the wrong ways.

Ah, yeah I'll have to do something about that ninja jump to the funnel, that's definitely not intended. I'm not sure I can do much about being able to stand on the edge so close to the laser field, though, and yeah the light bridge was the "correct" solution there. Ah well.

The last section is a bit trivial compared to the rest of the puzzle, I might see if I can do something about that some time.
