Thanks Warthog, I see what you were saying, however, since we wrote I downloaded Steam to a new computer and although all my puzzles are still in my Workshop, they are not in my list of created chambers and I cannot edit them any more. Your info is still usefull for my new creations though, Thanks again and Happy puzzle making.

That's great! I will check out your ideas right away.

It's really easy to prevent this cheating though if you just remember this: If you have glass, grating or fizzlers in your map, make sure that there is not a portable sureface on both sides or diagonaly of it. You can have portable sufaces everywhere on one side of it but make sure there isn't on the other side to prevent the cheating.
Sorry I had to make this so long but there's a lot to tell
I'm really happy I could help and please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like more info/help
Like I said before I'll be sure to go and play some more of your chambers; you have some great puzzle ideas!

Secondy, there is a cheating move that poeple use often that you should know about so that you can prevent it. It only concerns glass/grating and fizzlers: in your map where there is the glass preventing you from portaling into the other room you can easily get there if there is a portable surface on either side of the glass. I'll try to explain the trick but I suggest you try it out so that you know what I mean. First you place a portal on your side of the glass or fizzler, next you shoot the other portal on or in-between the first portal and the glass or fizzler. If there is a portable surface on the other side then the second portal should jump to the other side of the glass/grating or fizzler.

I'm happy to help =) First of all, to get up onto the exit platform you need to make a total of four portals. Portals one and two are placed on the portable wall closest to the exit area; one as close to the top and the other at the bottom. You walk through the bottom portal and when you're falling out the top you put the next two portals beneath you: make sure they are still as close to the exit platform as possible. Now you are going back and forth (up and down) between the third and fourth portals on the floor. Because of the height you got from the wall next to you, you should be able to make it just up onto the edge of the exit platform. The least you need to do to fix this is to make the five portable squares on the floor that are closest to the exit, non-portable.
I hope that helps!

Thanks for the suggestion Warthog. I tried to do the same as you but I am not as skilled or knowledgable. Any clues you can give me on how you portal up there we can always delete the comments afterwards.and I can correct the map.

Thanks for the map, JayB52! I enjoyed the puzzle a lot =)
If I may make a suggestion, it probably would be a good idea to make the nearest portable area to the exit non-portable. The first time I played this map I just grabbed the reflection cube, tossed it up on the exit platform and used non-cheating portaling technequies to get up there myself. I played it again after that and found it took quite a few minutes to figure out the intended solution; good job! I'll be sure to go and check out your other maps
