Description
The video is out of date, however the test remains the exact same. Watching the video if you need it, not that this is a hard map, anyway, will still benefit you.

The first (released map) of a set of maps I call "Secondary Fire". The reason for it being called secondary fire is that the player can only use the Orange Portal. This test chamber includes the use of flinging, Hard Light Bridges a little bit of timing and Force Deflection Fields.

If you like this map be sure to check out the other "Secondary Fire" maps in the set.

Special thanks to Fourth Reaper (Penrose maps) for the use of the Force Deflection Field textures.


UPDATE 7/6/2015:

A long time to take to update a map, but here's the patch notes.

-Fixed the lighting to better match the rest of the maps in the collection.
-Added color correction to help with the overall environment the map.
-Dimmed the brightness of some of the observation rooms.
-Corrected an issue where the player could fire Portals through some of the doors.
-Miscellanious changes/tweaks.

Played it this map long time ago and indeed, it looks better, great work. Eventhough at some points it felt a little too bright, but it all comes down to the style.
The moment I stepped out from the elevator and instanly though "I smell a color cerrection", I was dam right.

Great work once again.

That was a pretty good monoportal puzzle.

sheild can't stop block from falling out, i am sure its because of the mechanics of momentum.

Updated the map after all this time. :P Patch notes are in the description, and I'm sure the changes are obvious. I'll be updating all the other maps as well as adding another within the following weeks.

@Singh I know it's been a year since your comment, but no tricky acrobatic jumps where needed for this chamber at all. I have placed Portal surfaces around the map where they are needed. In fact, that's what the handrail is for, to stop the player from going to far after flinging downwards through the blue. If you do decide to give this map another go, try to find the simpler solution instead of going for the hard one. That last sentence sounded offensive when I say it out loud, but believe me that wasn't my intent.

Very nice... not too hard... lots easy flings. The final poral on the exit is a very tiny surface!

@Singh Maybe it's because there is an easier way to get up there by shooting a portal ?

I wanted to like this chamber more. Poor jump mechanics kind of ruined it for me. Overall I found it a bit too acrobatic dependant.

1st jump: the handrail and hampered placement of the blue portal really start to weigh down the map with a sense of frustration at not getting over the lip of the upper recess. Why is the handrail there?

2nd jump area has you constantly hitting your head on the ceiling and again missing the lip. Once a player makes a logical connection to solve a part of the puzzle why punish them with repetition of difficult jumps until properly executed. Once in this area if you make a mistake with the fizzlers you have to do both step 1 and 2 all over again, making the puzzle more punishing than rewarding.

Lovely map so far, and I do love it when chambers use the secondary fire as the only fire for the portal gun. very nicely done!
