Ah, yes, thanks. I added the grating after most of the playtesting just to make failure less daunting. I can tweak the map to remove that when I remember.

Hey Sloth.ps,
You played my 3 sections map, so in returned i tried this map out.
For me, there were 2 ways to press the button to activate the gel.
I used the portable surface to jump over or i could stand at the end of the grating and shoot my portal on the other side next to the button.

Thanks!

Thumbs up - not sure I was doing it correct at first but ended up getting to the exit with plenty of room to spare.... very good.

I only used the blue gel.

Sounds like you're having even more fun with the map than I intended. Not that I'm going to complain about that :D

Or even better you can jump out of the top portal airstrafe left hard then portal on the wall opposite the door and on the floor and if you've done it right you get flinged straight to the exit. Give it a try its so much fun when you hit it

yeah you have a point they're really quite hard to learn to do and actually apply so i wouldn't bother thinking about them unless you're making an airstrafe map

Thanks. I kinda put bunnyhopping up there with reportaling - sure you can do it, but it's hard enough and obscure enough and gamebreaking enough that designing chambers which prevent it is too limiting. :-)

Afraid i dont know how but just look up Krank's channel on YouTube if you want: 'Portal2maps' . He's a lot better than me and definitely on eof the best bunnhoppers in the world
Sloth.ps  [Δημιουργός] 14 Ιουν, 2013 @ 2:38μμ 
I'd be interested in seeing that if you can record it.
Solig 14 Ιουν, 2013 @ 2:26μμ 
not probably its really easy if you use momentum from the walls
Sloth.ps  [Δημιουργός] 14 Ιουν, 2013 @ 2:10μμ 
Probably. Not designed for advanced players, but well done :)
Solig 14 Ιουν, 2013 @ 2:08μμ 
yeah this one you can easily bunnyhop to the exit

Thanks for the extra detail, it means the puzzle is working exactly as intended, I think. I'm pretty sure it's impossible to jump into the goo while experimenting unless you do it on purpose. I always forget about quicksave on PeTI puzzles for some reason :D

Maybe it's spending a couple of days working with the advanced mechnics in the Crazy Stuff chambers I made but yeah, I walked in this one and "saw" the solution. It happens occasionally ;)
To be straight, I didn't think I got the gel amounts balanced correctly and I thought I'd come up short, so I definitely F6'd before going for it! As such, I can see people just not trusting it and looking for something else.

I figured you might find this one trivial, but I know others who have puzzled over it for a fair old while before the lightbulb goes and they kick themselves. Which is what I was going for.

Thanks very much for the feedback :)
Bad_Aim 14 Ιουν, 2013 @ 1:51πμ 
Yeah, that works for what you are going for. I didn't love it but it's certainly a thumbs up. It's pretty clear what needs to happen so it seemed mostly about getting the gel in the right place, hitting F6 and going for it. If I were to change anything, it'd be to add a bit more portable surfaces to make placing the gel easier. That is unless you wanted to chamber to be about gel work, in which case, it's gtg.
