Hi BumbleGrum, Yeah it helps if you do the portal geometry in your head before you start cube orientation and portal angle are the key factors , but its very completeable with trial and error. Thanks for playing:)

From reading other people's comments, maybe there's another way of positioning the cubes in the correct orientation without having get them back each time and trying again. I just used portal orientation (above the elevator) to get them right.

You little Devil you. Worked it out fairly easily, but had a bit of trouble getting the cubes pointing the right way. Very smart concept.

Thank you.

A very fun map. Cool concept. I'm glad I ran into it recently so I knew how to do it. Thank you and I'll see ya round the workshop.

Very funny and creative. Highly recommended

Excellent chamber design and very good puzzle! The elevator was really nice!

your welcome.

Another update, moved cube dropper to more convenient location for the intended solution. Thankyou mood3rd for the suggestion:)

aha, makes sence now :)
I was doing it from the room, with the 1st cube dropper.
then quickly moving to the other chamber, to check the alignment.
opps :)
if the aligment fails.
you have to go back to the room, with the cube dropper.
so if that area could be moved, (without breaking the map)
to give a view of the polarity funel & laser.
that would be helpfull.
but I enjoyed it anyway.
keep up the good work.

Hi mood3rd, I anticipated people having the problems you discribed. The area under the polarity funnel was meant to make things a bit easier. The light panels on the floor were to help you position/orientate the cube in the centre, standing on one of the pistons gives you a birds eye view to line up your portal shooting angle. It was meant to be an area where the player could practice the trick and work out how the geometry works. Though you obviously didn't need it to complete the test:) Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for playing

another good application of the lift concept, you devised.
took a few tries to align the lasers, in the first areas.
they would move a little up or down, missing the laser catcher by inches.
perhaps I was not holding it level ? but worked in the end :)
the area under the polarity funel, with the pistons, had no known purpose ?
but looked good.
glad you positioned 2 cubes in the upper area for us.
as it stops it being tedious :)
good puzzle.
another thumbs up.
if you get time, please try a map from my workshop:

Ok, I mixed it up a little with the update, 2 different methods now. If you only do the trick once the map is probably over very quickly, and how would I know you didnt fluke it:) Maybe the upper room is a little oversized, but it makes for easier viewing of the laser path, will take another look

Thanks for the feedback though its much appreciated, I still think the concept is cool, 3D laser relays would have been amazing, but need too much repetition to be workable

This map contain a nice concept, and have a really nice visual design
But repeat the same step for 4 times maybe too much for players
Also the map is a little bit too big IMO

Anyway, nice map : )

This is a fun concept. like it
Traveler807  [author] Mar 25, 2013 @ 7:06am 
Just updated, have added a warm up room and tried to take away some of the repetition :)
Many thanks to Asea Man, warm up room is based on his idea.

This is a nice and creative concept. But there is a possible risk of getting the cubes destroyed when sending it up the elevator if it's not place correctly where the portal is. I did it carefully so I didn't lose any cubes. Since you're still within the item limit, do consider adding the cube droppers to assure players that they won't get stuck.
Luc Jan 29, 2013 @ 9:02am 
As said befor great concept! Doing it 4times seems a little bit odd to me. Thumps up anyway.
Traveler807  [author] Jan 26, 2013 @ 12:24am 
Ok, looks like Asha Man was right, it needs an intro. hflaire my thread did warn you it was more of a portal geometry test :)
You dont have to spend ages lining up cubes just shoot your portal from a different angle.
But thanks for the feedback, I'll start work on a revision, your test is on my list will get to it asap :)

This is a really intersting concept in spite of the cube orientation issues that some players may encounter
Nice work!
hflare Jan 25, 2013 @ 2:56pm 
This is a unique and original concept that I had not seen before.

But it is tedious to place the cubes at exactly the correct orientation, and ultimately not worth the effort. As soon as I understood what I was supposed to do, I thought," no way am I going to run back and forth and place all four of these cubes in exactly the right place - and then adjust them all. Just to solve a puzzle I'd already solved mentally."

Great concept, but simplify it and remove the tedium.

I love this. I wish I had thought of it.

Simple but clever idea.

Awesome, everybody should try this. I like the fact that the portal turns off once the platform pushes the cube through, and that you can point the cube by changing the direction you shoot the portal from. If you want to make it easier for people who may not get it, start with a really simple puzzle that leads up to this, for a learning curve. Always great to see something new, big thumbs up :)
