Testing focus: Lasers
Difficulty: Easy-medium / medium
Expected play time: Several minutes
Version: 1.1

A map I made quite a while ago, unless you think Juli 2011 is recent. ^^ This map features thermal discouragement beams, redirection cubes and fizzler action in the destroyed map style. It includes two test chambers of easy-medium to medium difficulty (I think), and one Ratman's Den for those that can find it. Try to create that party atmosphere!

This map has an advanced version, so if you feel like this one was a piece of the ol' proverbial cake, snatch that map from the collection up top.

Unlike the Penrose Collection that I'm working on, (you may have heard of it,) this map will NOT be followed up by more. Why is there a number in the map name, you ask? It's because I like consistency. That's right, no more maps with their aim on lasers as far as I can foresee.

The topic for the map can be found here:

Note: This map used to be called "sp_fr_lasers_01".

Hey, did anyone notice that easter egg in the secend room? =^D
(It was a corrupt android hell core stuck in the wall!)

Great! I remember to already have played that before......thumbs up! Splendid visuals btw.- loved it.
Now let's see if I can cope with the advanced version....

Very good chamber, thank you! The design is brilliant and the cubes/lasers dynamic works well, simple but not simplistic. Going straight to test the advanced version!

I like this one a little less than some of your others only because of the 2nd room. That said it's still a good solid fun map.

It's just a bit hard to register how stopping the laser or conversely starting it effects other things in the room. This is due to line of sight issues.

Mouse Eats Cat </3

That's exactly what I want out of a puzzle, so I take that as a compliment. :D

Good, had me thinking.

Thanks for the feedback folks. ^.^ Cogitation, I forgot what you were talking about, but then I remembered the first room. Yeah, not that proud of that anymore. Laser relay puzzles aren't the cream of the crop, so to speak. Hope you can forgive me. :P

@wildgoosespeeder: I'm not sure what music I used anymore. Never noticed the distraction myself, unless of course you found the easter egg.

This is a good map, though it does rely on placing a portal on a wall segment that has fallen out of place, which at first glance doesn't look like it's intended.
