Thinking Outside the Sphere

I literally spent an hour trying to drop down to the exit. Then it clicked. And I finished it. Also you can do some hilarious things by putting the sphere on the swap panel and then switching it. It sits there for 10 seconds and then flings itself across the room. Overall, well done.

Amazing map!. Creative, very well designed and a lot of fun. Big Thumbs up!

Seriously just hit me, I can't believe the answer was so close to me I didn't even realize it. Such an easy one when you think about it. lol GREAT MAP!

Can say in all the maps I have every done, I have never had this much trouble figuring out the light bridge. Can you give me a hint without giving it away? :)

Thanks for persevering with my map!

This is the best "ahaaa ! ! " moment I have had in 2 years. Took me 3 datys to get rid of the damn light bridge, albeit if only for a second - that's all it took . Your Sir, are a friggin' GENIOUS ! ! !

A map that actually makes me think, instead of making me look for a hidden panel in the corner.

Probably better than most of the vanilla maps.

That wouldn't resolve anything unless you automatically kill the player once they're down there, or otherwise allowing the player to get out and finish the test. I don't like having to manually kill myself one way or another. It's annoying.

I was gonna put a sign above that hole saying DO NOT JUMP DOWN THIS HOLE... but I never got around to doing it... xD

The easter egg at the bottom of the shaft is a horrible, rotten one, and I almost gave this map a thumbs down for that...

...however the genius of the test seemed to have overcame that. I questioned the purpose of everything, and surprisingly, everything has a purpose! It was an interesting challenge to exit with the light bridge when I couldn't simply remove it with a portal (not even a portal shift on the same surface). Nice modification of a Puzzlemaker test! We need more like yours... except the easter egg ;(

Ok...here is some advice for all those who are stuck. When in doubt, assume it's a game of F.T.W.P. (Find The White Panel). Find it and win.

A great map; more to it than meets the eye. Everything seems straightforward but there's definitely only one proper solution here. Well-crafted and definitely worth a play. Thanks for mapping.

Great map! I subscribed when I saw Transgenic solve it because it looked fun, so I already had hints on what to do. The elevator control is awesome.

Great map, sorry it's so underrated.

This one had my brain in a knot for a while. I've added it to my collection

nah, can't download
Blazier  [author] May 28, 2012 @ 5:11am 
Try again. Probably just dodgy Steam Workshop servers. I haven't touched anything.
Rage9one May 28, 2012 @ 5:10am 
why isn't it available for download anymore????
cabrinha78 May 28, 2012 @ 12:32am 
Thank you for the great map, except for that mean pit :)

There's more than one way to get rid of the light bridge. From up above the exit you wont be able to shoot a portal to move the light bridge away. You'll have to think of a different way to turn it off.
FFandCS May 26, 2012 @ 7:12am 
I can not for the life of me get rid of the light bridge allowing me to drop to the exit.... any help would be awesome

Great puzzle - took a bit of thinking. Did find the companion cube shaft, but why have to die in the goo? Thanks for creating and enhancing with hammer....
Blazier  [author] May 21, 2012 @ 9:00pm 
Thanks for playing.
trooper093 May 21, 2012 @ 8:58pm 
f*** it. thanks for telling me what i know. appreciate it. you have been a BIG help. 2 hours of my life ill never get back
Blazier  [author] May 21, 2012 @ 8:54pm 
Oh. You mean that laser. Cool.

Now you need to think of a way to get rid of the light bridge. You're almost there.
trooper093 May 21, 2012 @ 8:51pm 
if you dont mind checking, i took a screenshot. i feel like the next step is easy but i dont know. http://steamcommunity.com/id/trooper093/screenshot/577830787784681878/?
Blazier  [author] May 21, 2012 @ 8:46pm 
That room at the bottom of the shaft is just a bonus. You can only die if you drop down there.

So your problem might be with the second room. You need to find a way to get up to the ledge that's indicated by one dot. After that the next steps should come naturally.
trooper093 May 21, 2012 @ 8:42pm 
i can see in the picture of your map that there is a room in the bottom of the shaft at the entrance. is that room important to solving this puzzle? just curious, this is the first map i have ever tried that i cant get past and i have no idea why. i have been able to turn off the lasers but thats it. ive spent over an hour and a half trying. would appreciate a guide or something.
Blazier  [author] May 21, 2012 @ 7:44am 
There. I added a button in the place you could get stuck to stop you from being stuck. Thanks for the feedback, guys!
Q May 20, 2012 @ 2:57pm 
i like it. it was challenging but fair
Shadow Dancer May 20, 2012 @ 11:20am 
There's a shaft with goo at the bottom and a companion cube, once you're down there you cant get out.
Blazier  [author] May 20, 2012 @ 5:22am 
What shaft? ;). No easter eggs here.
dcook May 20, 2012 @ 5:17am 
Well.. for starters you can get stuck at the bottom of the shaft...
