Description
First test chamber I have ever created. Really this was just messing around with the editor to get a feel for it before I go advanced (if I can think with Portals, that is).

This is a short puzzle. Some reaction time required but not too difficult. Inspired by "Cube in Height[www.portal2maps.net]".

v1.0:
Initial release.

v1.1:
Rearranged a few things.
Valve fixed the flip panel bug where one activator can flip it if there are two or more activators attached to it.

Ok map and puzzle. Thanks

Well, you’re right on that account. I used to publish a new chamber every week, but now it’s every two or three months… or more. Like you, I put a lot of thought and work into these chambers now and if everyone likes it, great. If not, oh well. At least I can say I like it… well, most of mine I can say that.

Most of the maps that are on the top of the popularity list are extremely simple and pointless. I can make one of those maps in 10 minutes, but I refuse to do that because I feel that true portal players want a challenge and I intend to give it to them with every map I make.

...and then we have most that create maps for the wrong reasons, such as fishing for compliments and looking to be popular rather as top priority than the level design itself. You and I (and a few others) are part of the other group that puts care and thought into our maps and lets the compliments and popularity come naturally rather than be forced. Those things should be earned, not demanded, by the creator.

We all have a learning curve. Some get better quicker than others.... I'm one of the others. My few chambers are crap... in my opinion

3rd and 4th chamber creations are crap but my 1st and 2nd are a good start towards map making. I will always see my first four that way in retrospect. My technique got better as I kept creating with a fewer and fewer hiccups.

I've never tried one of your early tests.... you had the touch then too, thumbs up.

Better than most first efforts, quick and simple, a welcome break after an Azorae brain-twister.

A fast paced quickie. I enjoyed it.

That was an awesome short little test, I don't know how many I've seen that are short and are either stinking hard or uber easy, this is the perfect balance. lol, I slam-dunked the ball from the excursion funnel to finish it off with a bang. Loved it! 8.5/10
