Thanks for pointing that out to me. I will get it fixed and thanks for playing.

There's another trapping situation that was staring me in the face: the excursion funnel. If the player doesn't use the conversion gel at all, and jumps in, there's no escape....

Thanks for playing.

:D Didn't use 2 of 3 podests near the exit. Trap situation possible, if you get to hidden button via fling. Anyway funny painting job.

You can shoot your portal either on the left or right side of the flip panel getting conversion gel on the floor passed the floor lights then shoot portal on the floor to get on the ceiling and keeping working it to the back wall, it took about 2-5 minutes to get the gel where I needed before using the tractor beam.

Thnaks, I will make a change on this chamber. I tried to get the gel on the wall but I couldn't do it, what's your secret?

Using conversion in a map a player can almost pretty much solve the map unintended in which is what I did without using the other 2 gels or droping the flip panel!

Going across the goo with the cube, stand on cube against glass to give more height, then dropped onto ledge and grab cube out of the funnel to placed on button and exit.

Thank you.

Andi..enjoyed the puzzle (as usual).I didn't have too much trouble solving the puzzle but it took me a couple sessions to finish (prep took some time)
The community maps keep growing in size and the only way (that I'm aware of) to save a community map is with F6 [but that's lost when you Exit]
Good control of the WHITE GEL....That's a challenging one from a design point because obce you give the user the ability to portal anywhere they want thwe challenge landsd on the designer...Good Job!!

I don't have anymore chambers that use all three gels but I may make another one.

Thanks for your comment. I will try your chamber too.

I'm one who normally paints everything in sight with the gel but this time I could see where I needed it so not too much excessive gelwork. I did have trouble with the blue gel trying to get it on the angled panel. I needed another cube to hold it down and activate the gels. I eventually got enough to splash on it to do the job. I also tried to place the cube with the funnel and ...splash. But it wasn't hard to figure out the right way. Your chambers looked good. Lotta work involved I'm sure. Fairly easy puzzle but making it happen was fun. I have one using gel called Reflection of a Shadow. When you get time, let me know what you think of it. Thank you and I'll be back at your door for more.

@psn_markm1978 Thanks for playing. I'm happy to hear that you liked it. I will take note of your suggestions and I will try you chambers too.

@Bayram Sorry to hear this chamber wasn't to your liking. Perhaps you will like my next chamber better, there is no gel in it. Thanks for playing.
Bayram Nov 15, 2013 @ 8:13am 
There are some good ideas here, but overall I didn't enjoy playing the map; no rating. There seemed to be a lot of grunt work involved - walking around, spreading gel, going back up the stairs again. I specifically did not like the magically appearing platforms near the exit as I found a way to jump without bothering to lower the angled panel and always landed in the good, making the whole thing appear impossible and adding frustration.
psn_markm1978 Nov 14, 2013 @ 10:45pm 
A few notes: Not bad, I like the use of light strips to reign in portal (white) gel usage. Although, a few aggravations I had going through were: a) I like the peek area to shoot for the tractor beam, but you can't shoot for the white gel from it too. b) You ought to place a grate on the surface below the white gel dispenser so that happy trigger players don't incidentally fall through their other portals when layering white gel in the main chamber. Other than that, pretty good map.

Please try mine:

Great chamber! Had me stuck for a little while with the Conversion Gel and the Tractor Beam. Good way to make players think! Well Done
Andi  [author] Nov 6, 2013 @ 1:21pm 
Thanks for playing. You did memtion the excess walking however I do try to keep the walking a minimun. I'm happy you liked it.
Skyferret Nov 6, 2013 @ 12:50pm 
Had me thinking for a bit. Especially how to get the conversion gel where I need it. Smear me ups with gel all over da place usually does it. It was mentioned already about the excess walking. It is a bit time consuming, but if one has time to sit down and play a map, then it's not really a biggy. But as for everything else, it was good. Ferrets don't have thumbs, so 2 paws up.
Andi  [author] Nov 5, 2013 @ 8:44am 
Don't be sorry, I value input such as this. It helps me to build better maps. I hope you enjoy it.
SCjay Nov 4, 2013 @ 8:27pm 
Exit Barrier could be wider. It is possible to make a portable surface that will get you close enough to the exit so you can slip in via a funnel and then portal back to get the cube. Now I think I'll go back and solve the puzzle It looks like fun.

Nice chamber. It was a good head scratcher. 'Electric HellFire Club' by chance?
Xax Oct 26, 2013 @ 11:08am 
Cool chamber. I was very satisfied when i solved it. But walking back and forth got tedious after a while.
JAZ Oct 25, 2013 @ 12:15pm 
Not bad, the conversion gel was well placed and well used. I didn't end up painting everything in site with it like I usually end up doing. The only trouble I had was that the alignment of the angled panel did not quite allow the two tractor beams to meet, and the cube dropped in the water instead of transferring. Also if you ride the tractor beam along with the cube, like I did on my first try, there is no way out except to die.
Andi  [author] Oct 20, 2013 @ 1:08pm 
Thanks. I will play your map as soon as I get a chance, thanks.

@Rasofe: I know what you mean. You'll be happy to know that I don't have anymore plans to use gel in the future... for now.

@Innocentive: You solved it as intented. Thanks for playing.
Piranha.A Oct 18, 2013 @ 1:59pm 
At first I didn't like this map a lot because immediately after getting the cube, I activated the colored gels which made terminating the test so much more difficult. Only when I set out to record a run I noticed that I had made my life unecessarily difficult. Here's how I finally solved this one.
Rasofe Oct 18, 2013 @ 1:39pm 
It's more of a design thing. When you have conversion gel anywhere on the map, the chamber will have fewer non-right angles and far more non-portable surfaces.
Andi  [author] Oct 18, 2013 @ 10:10am 
@Rasafe: Everyone has an opinion on the gel, some like the gel and some don’t. I personally like the gel. It adds a level on solving the chambers. Sorry it you didn’t like it though.

@Jwing01: I hope you like it. Thanks for playing.
Jwing01 Oct 17, 2013 @ 2:40pm 
tough one
Rasofe Oct 17, 2013 @ 1:21pm 
Too easy to get stuck at the button with the funnel pressing down on it.
Rasofe Oct 17, 2013 @ 12:48pm 
Quick question: do people typically enjoy the gel puzzles?

Personally I'm fine with them but everytime I get hit by gel I feel like I'm about to contract cancer. The conversion gel is the worst, and it also reduces the amount of portalable surface you can have to a bare minimum or else the solution becomes too easy.
Andi  [author] Oct 17, 2013 @ 10:03am 
Thank you, I'll play you chamber too.
