Thanks for the demo.

The name of this map is perfect. Usually when I break a map I list the things I didn't use....In this case it's faster to list the things I did: reflector cube, laser, lightbridge. (technically I "used" that glitchy funnel through door, but not in a way that would have been different if it didn't exist)

Here is a demo of my solution: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xkzhkousyfwlpvs/broken.dem

Glad you got through this broken mind map. Thanks for playing and leaving comments.

Hardest part for me was getting reflector cube positioned correctly. The rest of the test involved, as with all of your chambers, careful observations and putting two plus two together.

Wasn't hard, brought 4 cubes to the exit :)

Nicely done! Had fun! As mood3rd likes to do, I gather 3 cubes at the exit! Companions . I was able to bring the reflector cube from the first room by a portal just over the fizzler to the next room
Please test one of mine! Thanks.

if you don't know how someone did something on a map.
& you want to see any hidden gates / switches.
below are usefull info:
for looking at hidden gates / swiches on a map, do the following:
access console: press key above TAB key (when finished, press again, to exit.)
type: sv_cheats 1 (this allows next 2 commands to work)
type: noclip 1 (this stops gravity affecting you, & you can move any direction including up & down, & through walls, floor,cieling & objects / items)
type: god (this means you can not die = imortal.)
(this is usefull if on the other side of a wall, you fly through, their is a laser field, you can't see untill to late. or other leathal element.)

ps to get the console in game, press the key above the TAB key.
when finished, press same key to exit.

thankyou
I use fraps (the paid for version) . information etc at:
http://www.fraps.com/faq.php
I then use windows movie maker, to add titles etc.
you can split it & delete unwanted parts, with this if you want.
I don't want to speak, nirrate through the map.
but can with fraps & a microphone, if I wanted to.
you can record using software built into portal or steam (I forget which)

Good job. I laughed watching you gather those cubes and bring them to the exit. I made a video also. Not as much fun to watch as yours. The picture quality is a little off on mine. How did you make yours? I've been wanting to make videos for the rest of my maps.

your welcome.
I am off to the dungeon now.

Grateful for your hard work. There'll be cake in the dugeon after midnight. Thanks a lot.
mood3rd Nov 22, 2012 @ 2:47pm 
that is greatly improved.
I thought, has tedwilliams4808 tested it, or not ?
have you made it unsolvable ?
well this proves it is much improved.
the fizzlers meant I only reached the exit with 2 cubes.
the missing reflector cube had me going for a while. nice.
I had to use the reverse funel this time.
before your update, I used the funel from the 1st chamber, in the 2nd.
no longer possible.
button connected to laser field & piston, is now essential.
due to where you moved the fizzler.
thumbs up of couse.
now we both know this map.
we are less likely to find exploits.
so you need new expendable, I mean experienced people, (or do I ?) to test it.
very good map now.
mood3rd Nov 22, 2012 @ 2:08pm 
your welcome :)
I will play again.

Thank you my friend. I have made some edits and I think you'll like them.
mood3rd Nov 22, 2012 @ 12:15pm 
in first chamber, I jumped on & off the button & the reflection cube went on to the faithplate, then back up & caused 2 to be stuck in Reflector Cube Dropper. (I had to restart map)
you only need 3 cubes.
if you don't put the cube on the button in 2nd chamber, before crossing to reflection cube.
you will be traped.
button that stops piston & turns off laser field is not needed.
both funels don't need to be reverse polarity.
only need 2 cubes in 3rd chamber (I have 4 now).
don't know why fizzler is on the floor.
I just walk along the side rim & keep my portals active.
dispite all this, their are good elements to this & fun.
I just can't get them cubes through the exit door yet. doh.
