Well i actually had more trouble with the 2nd part than the 1st part, but i have finally gotten it, ur crazy man, just crazy! Like robin_z said "I have no idea how you create such a convoluted puzzle! I don't mean building it in a map editor, I mean the ideas behind the puzzle themselves." And to be honest, i found the solution in the 2nd part kind of by accident, i wasn't really trying at that point when i realized, I CAN DO IT FROM HERE! Kind of like untying a knot, you just work at it and work at it, and when you stop paying attention, you realize that it's almost done! :p 8.5/10

Can i add u as a friend? (I like ur pichure too by the way)

Hang on, how are you level 0?

Good to see the old Dilapidation series make a seamless comeback - it really does feel like a perfect continuation, like I'm playing part 7. The puzzles are just as challenging, the art is still incredible to look at, and the effects are still good.
If clicking the "Thumbs up" button multiple times made a difference, I would do just that!

Hope Selyp's okay back there :(

Great map! I found this to be a bit over medium in difficulty. I have no idea how you create such a convoluted puzzle! I don't mean building it in a map editor, I mean the ideas behind the puzzle themselves. How can you determine that there isn't a sneaky loophole? Anyway, thanks for the fun map!

@DeathWish808, thanks for the video again, honoured by your comments, working hard on Portal Stories at the moment so put these maps on hold.

I remember your dilapidation series and Prototype sent me a link to these 3, so I played through the 1st one on twitch.tv.

I didn't remember anything about the chamber especially ever playing, but apparently I did since I had already thumbed it up. Regardless, it was like a new map to me, so awesome!

I thought this was a blind run: http://www.twitch.tv/deathwish808/b/526524968 :-P (It really was though. haha)

After playing through dilapidation this one seemed easy. Or maybe I just adapted and learned your logic paterns. Once again, nice job. I'm off to the next one. "Please sir, I want some more"...Oliver Twist.

Played part 3 recently and decided to look at 1 and 2. Was stuck for some time once again, forgot the golden rule that cubes are replaceable! Enjoyed greatly, Thank you.

I had a different solution than in Tom. K's video, and apparently my solution wasn't intended, because when the door opened I could hear the "congratulations, you have trapped yourself" anouncement playing through the exit message. What I did was:
I put the companion cube, that Tom. K used to block the laser until the last moment, immediately in the red basket. I lined up the laser through the portals like Tom. K did, opening the door and raising the red laser screen. The portal in the room where the laser is, was on the third white panel from the left. I moved that portal, disabling the laser screen, so I could walk towards the exit. Near the exit, right behind where the red laser screen would come, I put the left portal back in it's place on the third white panel, perfectly lining up the laser to open the door. Placing the portal from there was tricky, but barely possible.
I hope this is clear, if you need more explanation please ask.

Thanks! I Found the particle prop by myself but i couldn't figure how to make it work, the problem is that in the space where it asks for the model I had no idea what to use. Somehow it opens a viewer for the particles but there isn't anyone to choose! Anyway, typing that particle name worked fine.
LoneWolf2056  [author] Nov 11, 2013 @ 3:58pm 
@[ExR]-IAMV0LDY thanks, the water is just a normal brush with a displacement to make it look like pools, the water texture is "water_a1_intro3" and the water from the pipe is a particle effect "drip_stream_01"
[ExR]-IAMV0LDY Nov 11, 2013 @ 9:35am 
Nice chamber and expecially nice hammer work! I have a couple question about the water you find after you jump in the "pit".
Is that a simple "cube" of water made with brush with some displaced terrain around it? If yes, which texture did you use for the water? I only find dirty water textures while your looks cleaner (meybe it's just because of it's low depth?). Last thing, how you made the ripple of water falling from the tube? Hope you can help me!

Amazingly well done! The the difficult level is just perfect, even better than Dilapidation!
snowowl Oct 22, 2013 @ 3:12pm 
This one is much more enjoyable than the Dilapitation series. One requires some logic on cube placement, but the difficulty level is just right.

Very nice map and puzzle design
PR1NC355 Oct 15, 2013 @ 5:05pm 
I picked to play this map to play for the delapidated atmosphere - I gave a thumbs-up for the brilliant puzzle. Nice job.

I just loved this puzzel! Thanks! *****
AsinoEsel Sep 20, 2013 @ 12:51pm 
GREAT!!!
You did an awesome job creating this epic test.
I love the moment when you think you tried everything, and then you have that idea leading to success... Awesome!
p0rtalmaster Sep 6, 2013 @ 12:44am 
...and thanks to Lpfreaky90 and Mevious for inspiring you to make the tests in your series difficult yet simple. Looking forward to future maps in the series!

AWESOME level ! have to play part 2 :D I like that part about that trap with red energy wall :D oh funny not trivial like magority of levels I played in portal 2so keep up the good work :) p.s. : I liked that dynamic enviroment you created there too :)
LoneWolf2056  [author] Aug 11, 2013 @ 4:45pm 
Oops forgot to repack it, sorry about that, should be fixed now.

The Death Fizzler is not showing up anymore.

Had an excellent time playing this test chamber.
Demon Arisen Jul 10, 2013 @ 12:38pm 
Brilliant brain-bending fun from start to finish. This really is an awesome map, and the atmosphere is brilliant! The second chamber had me stumped for ages... Please make a part 2!
StirewaltDNA Jun 30, 2013 @ 7:35pm 
I have to say that you have made some great, and difficult, maps; I would love to see when Reconstruction: Part 2 comes out. Also, if I may ask, have you ever tried or thought about creating a Co-op map? I could see you making some pretty interesting ones.
404IsFound Jun 29, 2013 @ 3:13pm 
Exactly what I expected and more! This is shaping up to be an amazing sequel to the mind-boggling, innovative Dilapidation map pack. I can't wait for the next part. Great job!
[NGD]Quadman450 Jun 12, 2013 @ 1:07pm 
Very nicely done! Can't wait to play Part 2!
Gusano Supremo Jun 8, 2013 @ 7:26pm 
wow, this puted my brain to work so much!
excellent puzzles, excellent ambience and stunning visuals!
Great job!
Johannes-im-Dampf Jun 7, 2013 @ 2:54pm 
Really nice one.
Mr. Narrator Jun 6, 2013 @ 12:14am 
Hey man when there will be the new part?) Your maps are bloody awesome!
50milliarden Jun 5, 2013 @ 1:45pm 
A work of genius.
LoneWolf2056  [author] Jun 4, 2013 @ 11:45am 
Thanks for the nice feedback ^_^ @<Moving-DEATH> Once again thanks for the little review :D
Le Petit Mort Jun 4, 2013 @ 11:14am 
Pros:
• Stunning attention to detail;
• Good use of dynamic lighting;
• Makes use of an unconventional gameplay mechanic;

Cons:
• It's not hard to guess, but the red-gate isn't technically introduced to the player;
• Unconventional mechanic may baffle some;
• Still unfond of Campaign audio;

Thoughts:
Definitely play; stunning environments and clever puzzles is really all you hope for in a map anyhow.
piotr_mil Jun 3, 2013 @ 3:10pm 
Wow. very, very good map. A typical cube switcheroo puzzle, but a very enjoyable one.
largemanwithgun Jun 3, 2013 @ 4:15am 
Awesome map!
Hulk Jun 2, 2013 @ 11:27pm 
awesome work!
AD_79 Jun 2, 2013 @ 1:12pm 
Good to see a high-quality map on the most popular page.
Husky Jun 2, 2013 @ 11:52am 
Thank you!
Husky Jun 2, 2013 @ 11:27am 
It looked like most of the red panels were dying.
Husky Jun 2, 2013 @ 11:26am 
In the first test, I can count all of the panel colors: 8 aqua, 1 black, and 11 red.
Red wins!
Husky Jun 2, 2013 @ 11:22am 
I thought the first test was really mysterious.
1980 Jun 2, 2013 @ 7:15am 
It was not easy to find the x sign, which was more difficult than the puzzles set lol
