Darn, I almost thought I was going to get outside! Nice, but short.

Yeah, who needs a map ending with Exile Vilify playing? That's cheesy.

(ending) I'm sorry, I did not know why that went off. XD

Uh, what? GLaDOS is the one most in control here.

Can you let lights off and power off for each chamber when a employee enters it's office?
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jul 15, 2013 @ 4:09pm 
You tried to escape, but alas, GLaDOS prevented you from doing so.
Last Man's Reaper Jul 15, 2013 @ 3:53pm 
Why do you return back to office six in the ending and start there in the beginning of V3Ryan?
catsit51 Jun 24, 2013 @ 12:20pm 
@zomgies59: you've right, unfortunately...
catsit51 Jun 24, 2013 @ 12:20pm 
Awesome!

Sound kinda like my life, lol!
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jun 10, 2013 @ 4:14pm 
This IS the conclusion. You're stuck back in your office, forced to work this boring office job for the rest of your life.
Mildmanners Jun 10, 2013 @ 12:54pm 
Are you going to conclude this?
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jun 5, 2013 @ 4:09pm 
Well, I knew that was there when testing the map. Why I didn't resolve it? Well, my mind always misses something in the process of doing things, in general.

I ran into a stuckage issue; I put a portal in the first room and a portal after the big dramatic door; portalled down again and shot the portal I had upstairs there; couldn't go back.

Ok
Just to tell you, you may want to work on your texturing for some of the map.
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jun 3, 2013 @ 4:29pm 
Still, it also involves a slight twist ending where GLaDOS implies she's going to revive Rattmann. There was a cut piece of the final ending that still exists in the map.
ManBearPootis Jun 3, 2013 @ 12:05pm 
I also just noticed, the last line GLaDOS says,"And there's nothing to stop us from testing, for the rest of your life." is the same ending line as used in Designed for Danger's end.
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jun 2, 2013 @ 1:50pm 
Sure!

As long as those brushes don't contain the map [as I said, unless it's a visible skybox, don't contain the map in a massive box], they should be detail. Not necessarily 1 func_detail, but multiple func_details. Group all the detail brushes similarily [eg. make 1 wall 1 func_detail, make a complex pillar another one, etc.]. I would highly reccomend visiting the VDC Wiki page on func_details, as that goes into 1000% more depth than I just did. If you aren't already, consider joining ThinkingWithPortals.com so that you can ask questions if you get stuck. And don't hesistate to add me as a friend if you want, I love the concepts of your maps but I want to help you make them better.
Twilight Freemane  [author] Jun 2, 2013 @ 1:21pm 
Thank you for the advice. I don't always think of func_details, because there's still probably a lot of crucial tips about Hammer in general that I'm missing. So, say if I make all the non-entity brushes in a single chamber into a single func_detail. That would help performance?
ultiman9711 Jun 2, 2013 @ 9:37am 
Relating to the actual level: Not bad. No real puzzles, but still not bad. But I'm not done yet. Your mapping skill leaves a little to be desired. First off, your visleafs aren't too hot. I looked and almost nothing is func_detail. Combined with you "sealing" the level by enclosing it in a large box, makes for bad performance/slow compile time. Another point to address: The hallways are, as a whole, quite bland. Try adding some neat things to look at, maybe a little missing chunk of wall that reveals cubes whizzing through a tube. As well, the "outside" portion looked funny. Maybe try making it bigger, and add an env_fog_controller so that you can't see the boundaries of the space. I thank you for creating this map, and I hope I can see great tests from you in the future!

It did not bother me, actually I liked it, because I also like the Designed for Danger series.
Twilight Freemane  [author] May 28, 2013 @ 3:42pm 
Well, that's somewhat true. In Designed For Danger, the Announcer reactivates GLaDOS spontaneously, while here the player reactivates her themselves, fully knowing of it. And that exit was the true exit right to outside, but there was a security grate left there by the other employees back before the neurotoxin party. In truth, the ending WAS indeed influenced by Designed For Danger. But, you can only do so much with vanilla game content. So, you have me there; I slightly copied Designed for Danger. But, I'm still learning here. In the future, I may come up with more original plotlines, while at other times I have to slightly copy others. Things happen as they do, and what can you do about it? - So, sorry if that bothered you. The whole 'copying' thing.
ManBearPootis May 28, 2013 @ 1:14pm 
Good, but the ending is coppied from the final part of Designed for Danger, or at least partly so.

o yea

Part 4 doesn't really have person-specific easter eggs. Namely, it has an easter egg in Episode 1 relating to the beginning half of the map.
(ƦAWƦaRFS) Catches07 May 27, 2013 @ 11:41am 
One thing is you forgot to say the people's easter eggs.
(ƦAWƦaRFS) Catches07 May 27, 2013 @ 11:41am 
That was so awesome!
