I made a demo of the final, critical steps of the solution. You can download it from my website at

The filename is trenches.dem. Put it in your Steam\steamapps\common\portal2\portal2\ folder, then start Portal 2. Press the ~ (tilde) key to enter the command window and type "playdemo trenches ", or just click the command when it appears. Then click "Submit."

Per my previous comment, I made a chamber based on what I thought you were going to do. I'd love to hear what you think, since it's based on your chamber: [Improved geometry version]

(Your aesthetics are, of course, far superior)

[I have deleted the previous version of my chamber, and the previous comments, for cleanliness]

Favoriting, extroardinarily well done!

Try mine:

Great puzzle! Had me thoroughly stumped for the longest time. I thought you needed to get the cube from the entrance room, and that the laser catcher there was tied to the fizzler. I tried carrying the cube across the bridge while still pointing at the catcher, only to realize I was entirely wrong. The solution is truer to the concept of the puzzle, so great job!

It made me feel better when I saw Mevious try this in a video and give up.

Finally I did it. Azorae, thanks for your great maps. They make me think that I'm not hopeless lol

Original map is much better. The first room is unnecessary suggestion which spoils some of the challenge in the second.

Liked it very much!

Another great chamber.. thank you!
I really like the mix of lasers and bridges, and the final step is very clever!

I feel like I didn't solve it correctly... Is there a tutorial somewhere?

Straightforward logic, but easy to overthink it. I bet there's a lot of variance in solving times depending on what people try first. Great map.

Read my profile before reading the rest of my comment!

I understand the concept but I haven't a clue so I exploited to get somewhere. I have three screenshots but I can't seem to upload right now. "Cloud service unavailable" error. I'll upload as soon as I can.

Try my SP map?
Try my COOP map?

One of your best maps.

Got to the second room and said "Oh, deja vu." Glad I was familiar with this chamber, because it took me a lot longer on the earlier one.

(Was about to ask if this was a repost until I actually bothered reading the description.)

Great map. Took me a long while.

The map should be fixed now.
Azorae  [author] Jul 16, 2013 @ 12:41am 
Ah, that's because this one isn't made correctly. I'm going to make sure everything is fine. The original one is still solvable, but the cube retrieval button doesn't work

It doesn't have an X on the Trenches one, but I didn't know how else I could identify it.
Toothless2603 Jul 15, 2013 @ 3:03pm 
I'm pretty sure making this version broke something, because even though I managed to solve this one, I'm still not able to solve the lasers and light bridges one. Also, I didn't need the bridge that has the X next to it.
