While I play tested this as best I could, the physic engine sometimes gets a bit crazy, which is dfficult to reproduce. However, if anyone can post screenshots of the places the cube gets stuck, I will see what I can do to fix it.
If it does get stuck, chances are, if you restart the level it shouldn't happen again.

Agreeing with others: a nice map, but far too easy to get the cube/player trapped in places. If not for the miniscule gap between glass panels, there would be more places from which the player can't get out.

Ha Ha I found my way to the end.... Nice map. I liked the way you droped down by the light bridges. At times I was just following the cube. Thanks

Probably me, but the cube falls under the mocing bridge when it's supposed to block the lazor.

Good map anyway though.

Got trapped in a box. Thumb down.

Really nice chamber :) But easy to bug

CamBen: The portal wall at the end was for when the cube get destroyed in the goo, a door will open and you can get back to the door.
As for the cube and the tube, I have seen that happen when the cube is placed in the tube, though I'm not sure how to keep it from doing that, except to raise the tube up so you can't get the box in there like that. If you just let go of it next to the tube, it will be sucked in fine.

@Muerte I think I might not have done the puzzle correctly, because I didn't have to use the portal wall at the ending place. But about the tube, I had to jump forwards while hold the cube in the tube, and after it got far enough, it got suck in. probably just a problem on my side. and I didn't reload or die.

Fantastic... Very different. Would like to see more like it.

OMG SO EPIC! MAKE MORE OF THESE PLEASE!

Very Good Test.

Great idea

I got stuck as well

Great job!

matanuilover: That is highly unsual getting stuck like that. Usually when those reopen, you just fall down.
CamBen: I'm still new to Hammer, and that was the first time I had tried to make a hole like that. When I have a chance I will see if there is something I can cover the hole with. Also, I'm not sure why the vent didn't take the cube, did you die and reload or something?

During the part where you fall down, I got stuck in the mechanism of the panel when it reopened, and couldnt move or shoot portals.

When standing on the tube, you can see the wall is badly cut. you should have hid that with a connecter or a flange. also, I had to shove it into the pipe. it wouldn't get sucked in. I don't know what that one last portal surface at the end was for, either.

Brilliant!

At the end, you can use the momentum to jump onto the tube that sucks away the cube. While standing there, looking to the exit door, you can see leakage. You might want to fix that. Other than that, great map.

Ever since I took the grate there and made it a 45 deg angle, I have yet to get it to fall in the goo. That said, I figured some how it would still get in there, which is why the return to the start exists. (and I have launched quite a few boxes there.)

I'm not surprised you got stuck there, I will see about causing that to reset if the box is destroyed, and hopefully fix that. It was the biggest problem I had with the level.

I think it somehow got destroyed falling down that pit with all the Light Bridges. I'm not sure how. But I think it was the vacuum tube that caused it to jump into the water at the end--maybe just move that over by one space or something.

I do try my best to mitigate the possiblity of getting stuck without the cube. However, even with all the play testing I do, the physics engine always seems to find a way to defeat me. Chances are it would not happen again on a second play through.
However, where did you end up getting stuck at and I will take a look and see if I can do something about it.

I liked this one better than the other one, especially with the GLaDOS lines. However, somehow my Cube jumped into the deadly goo at the end. I went back to the beginning to get a new one, but something happened to that one too and I got stuck in the middle of the puzzle without a Cube.
