Description
The Map Creator Tools collection is a list of the demo/showcase maps I made and I found. No puzzle or challenge here! This collection will only contain maps showing mechanisms usefull for map creators and usually hidden to the player. Feel free to use them in your own maps!

This map is a presentation of the different signal combination you can create using Portal 2 map editor. I tried to write the name of each tool on the walls, but if you can't read them here is the list :
-First right room : NOT, AND, NAND
-Second right room : OR, XOR, NOR
-First left room : Pulse generators
-Second left room : Flip-Flop (alternate signal)

If you need another signal feature that is not presented here, ask me, I will try to find it ^^

Thanks to slazer2k5 for the optimised OR gate.
Thanks to N_Sunderland for the optimised XOR gate.

@Unowninator : Sorry about that, some maps on the workshop can be broken and I need to re-upload them when this happen. I probably forgot to re-upload this one.

For some reason, I can't download this map. Every time I click subscribe it doesn't show up in my level list. WTF?

Map updated! Feel free to check out the new visuals (respect more the "noralisation" I used in the other Map Creator Tools) and the new methods for some gates and timers ^^

PS : I know about the fastest possible flip-flop but I thought that will not work when I built the map ;) So I will probably add it during the update ^^

Yep this is one of the very first maps I made and I was stuck really quickly becasue of the item limit X) Now I use the mod to bypass this limit and I forgot to update this map ;) Will do that as soon as possibe ^^

Now that more efficient versions of all the logic gates have been found (as I noticed that you haven't updated this since May 17th) wouldn't it make sense to replace the old ones with improved ones?

Also, for the first flip-flop, you can simplify it by only having one laser and catcher, and having the catcher disable the laser.

I have another pulse generator you can use I think it might work better for you because you can adjust the timing.
