What is the intended solution..? I didn't need to use the ceiling panel, and some people say they didn't need to use the light bridge (which I had to use).

i didn't use the bridge for solved your map. But good map

Great map! But I dont like that you wrote "simple" in the descriptions, cus that makes me a dumb dumb. Cus this was a challenge for me! Only managed to solve it after I played sector which was much easier.

Not sure if the way I solved it was intended - I also didn't use the ceiling surface.
Basically I exploited the fact that that the surface across the laser above the goo pond was two wide, and the surface at the exit was also two wide. I lined up the optical cube to hit the laser receptor at the cube's spawn room but only when the laser is coming through on one side of the two-wide surface...

Solved it cleanly, but I don't think I did it your intended way. Didnt use bridge or ceiling surface.

Very logical and great map, anyway :D

I simply meant that Sectors had already prepared me to such kind of test chambers and their difficulties. However, both Sectors and Ameliorate are genius masterpieces, and, in my opinion, could replace any of the Valve's initially created test chambers.
So, I hope, no more misunderstanding and offending. :D

Yes, I know. The result of two geniuses' collaboration :D. Don't get offended.

Sectors is half mine aswell :(

Absolutely brilliant chamber! Having already experienced Azorae's Sectors, I had less difficulties in putting a way through this one (though it had new elements in it). And yet, I agree with Cyhborg, EXTREME portal and positioning accuracy is needed. The last part with shooting the laser at a weird angle took me 6-7 attempts to accomplish. Anyways, magnificent job.

P.S. Sorry for intervening your grammar debate, guys. There's also an orthographic error in the description. The word "resemble" has one "s" in it, not two. :)

Not "Azorae's and my"? 'Cause it ressembles Azorae's puzzle, and it ressembles my puzzle (from your POV), so it ressembles Azorae's and my puzzle (from your POV).

I'm not sure that someone who can't spell grammar would be any good at it tbh. :D

Of course. Now we have it all figured out. Back to testing/test making for us.
Gig  [author] Dec 18, 2012 @ 8:55am 
@Inspirata That can't be right, if it were anything, it would "Mine and Azorae's"
Gig  [author] Dec 18, 2012 @ 8:51am 
Note: When I said it belongs to "Azorae and I", I meant "Azorae and I own it." Whoops
ɹəʇsɐɯlɐʇɹ0d Dec 18, 2012 @ 12:50am 
It's "my and Azorae's," Mr. Grammar.
Gig  [author] Dec 16, 2012 @ 8:32am 
However, it belongs to "Azorae and I" thus "Azorae and I's"
cyhborg Dec 16, 2012 @ 7:40am 
Neat puzzle. After a while, I knew what I had to do, but the execution was a bit frustrating,

I believe Azorae is right: "my puzzle", thus "my and Azorae's puzzle"

You really can't resist the grating-covered goo, can you?

This test chamber actually reminded me of another one of your more recent puzzles.
Gig  [author] Dec 8, 2012 @ 3:42am 
I think it's either, but grammar really needs to make its mind up.
Azorae Dec 7, 2012 @ 8:31pm 
I think it's "my and Azorae's"

First person plural possessives are weird
