Very unconventional logic. I like it. "You make up your own rules, just like me." -Cave Johnson.

Fabulous map, first room I completed without to much trouble, but the second room, MAN ! had me stumped for about an hour. Well done Sir !

Hey guys, just finished making my very first Test Map, and would love some feedback.

Ok this one had my brain working in overtime. While I thoroughly enjoyed room 1 and needing to reference high school geometry; brilliant. But I'll be honest, it stumped me. This is the first chamber in hundreds that I have done and needed to cheat. Room two is serious "out-of-the-box-thinking," and where I needed the most help. Well done! And thanks for not using any exploits too!

Bouncin' around on faith plates... :P

didn't know you can't shoot a portal while peaking through another. can you do that in the main Portal game? If not, seems like cheating. Not a big fan of your red herring objects either that serve no purpose other than to add frustration.

Fantastic idea! +1 from me.

Did u get the idea of the title "Unforeseen circumstances" from the Half-Life and Black Mesa chapter "Unforseen Consequences"? :P

I actually yelled "COOL" in the first chamber once I figured that out, very awesome solution! Didn't use the faith plates in the other room, not sure why I would have needed them... ? Love the use of the light bridge in second room (:

Hey loved the map. Thank you for this map!
I've got a map of my own I'm trying to get out there a bit, try it and leave a comment :)

Strategy 4: Knockoff

Yes, I liked the fisrt part more than the second (it was nice too!), but I haven't understand a thing: Why, to go to the second part, you used a cube to press the botton (near to it) to switch off the lightbridge? They are 3 useless objects!
pleple Aug 24, 2012 @ 6:38am 
Good one!
machmanx Aug 12, 2012 @ 12:19am 
Wow, this is definitely one of your harder chambers. The first part got me stuck for a while because I didn't know you could use the light bridge like that . The 2nd part got me for a while but a little thinking got me through. Make more chambers of this difficulty...very enjoyable :D
NaMbaR Aug 4, 2012 @ 7:31am 
I finished your test room. I find it good, I did not know the usefulness of the light bridge in the first room, I find it original. However, if I may allow myself a remark, in the second room, the sudden jump from the bridge of light to catch up, I think you should give up. This is the kind of thing that annoying (I think) is useless.
Ok, that's all, could you try this level please, I want know your opinion?

Definitely one of the best. Oh and that first room..brilliant trick! :D
Xenocat Aug 2, 2012 @ 2:20pm 
Very clever, had me puzzled for a while.
Squirrel Jul 28, 2012 @ 9:57am 
First part was hard... I had no idea you could do that in the game. Second part was easy.
Aardvark64 Jul 27, 2012 @ 3:09am 
I did like it, just about right difficulty for me once I had guessed how to get started in the second room!
Trixxuz Jul 15, 2012 @ 5:13am 
I did not like t much, pretty straight foreward, but felt like I was playing some Mario game. Just and try to be fast. I had hoped for more of an mid challenge, else. Keep up your work, you have some good maps.

Solve by: Create a portal for the walkway. Then jump sideways facing grate on the right and drop second portal to create a walkway to break your fall. Then jump while remaking the second portal till you can walk over the gap all the way to the fizzer. Create a portal at the floor level near the switch then another on the wall in line with the gap in the glass. Hit switch pop your head through the portal and recreate second portal all the way at the start. When you drop in there is a bottom to the tube your in. Repeat process for making the walkway and go through the portal. Create another walkway to help across and hit the switch. Now jump down to the grate near the water. Recreate the walk way, jumping to move it up then move second portal to create a walkway into the middle room.

I really liked your card :) Keep it up!
Please look at my map! I want to know your opinion :)

I liked the solution to the first room, but the techniques required for the second room seemed a bit poor in taste.
Leutian Jul 12, 2012 @ 10:09pm 
totally stumped on the 2nd room, will try again tomorrow! headache...
toncica Jul 12, 2012 @ 9:37am 
Voting down all your maps for your impertinent way of spamming other peoples workshops. Continuing... :)
Jaztiger Jul 10, 2012 @ 4:22pm 
this is a good chamber. Though it will not be bad if u make in alittle longer next time

Very unique, i'd say! :) liked it.
Elnif Jul 9, 2012 @ 3:35pm 
Very nice chamber, took me some time to figure out the first room :)
kirchnerd Jul 8, 2012 @ 7:09pm 
Very interesting Test. First room was a little tricky, but not bad, First part of second room was clever but wrong to do. I finally solved it after a lot of cussing. Never could figure out what purpose the jumping pads served for in the second half. Had to cheat a little to get out from behind the fizzle wall. Overall, very Clever, but annoying.

1つ目の部屋のアイディア、2つめの部屋の簡単で重要な閃きを必要とする絶妙な難易度、どれも最高でした!
ryuza Jul 8, 2012 @ 6:56pm 
発想が素晴らしかった!面白かったです・∀・
LMC [MöH] Jul 8, 2012 @ 6:11pm 
Very clever... >:=]
Warbear Jul 8, 2012 @ 4:11pm 
Couldn't figure out the first part. Too bad, would have liked to try the rest of the map.
Don't Blink Jul 8, 2012 @ 2:00pm 
This was a very good level. Please make more good levels.
mosaic_ Jul 8, 2012 @ 1:36pm 
I never would have foreseen the awesome circumstances that would lead to the creation to this epic test chamber. Very hard, but also very fun! Using the Hard-Light Bridges to do unconventional things was very cool.
AKS Jul 8, 2012 @ 12:05pm 
Very nicely thought out. I disliked the fact that in order to find out what you needed to do, you had to die first (as going where you were sure to die was the only way to see the solution sometimes) but I loved the fact that it made you think outside the box.
Fezasaurus Jul 8, 2012 @ 11:31am 
Brilliant chamber! Genuinely thought it was impossible for a while.
mikej.mcclendon Jul 8, 2012 @ 11:30am 
all right I guess its safe to assume that the room im whining about is a decoy...so that leaves a jump that I cant seem to make...my system is a bit slow so maybe i just cant do it...or maybe im dumb as dirt :)
mikej.mcclendon Jul 8, 2012 @ 10:46am 
ok i dont have a jump pad in the room with the big portal barrier and button that turns it off. So once i am in there im just stuck and since the button that turns off the barrier is in that room with no other access it means once i am in there i am stuck. All the places i could shoot a portal to are coverd with wire mesh...i am compleatly stumped.
mikej.mcclendon Jul 8, 2012 @ 10:30am 
I cant get the second room...its funny too because the first room I figured out in maybe 30 seconds tops. I cannot get to that damn button to release the cube DAMMIT :(
Amits40 Jul 8, 2012 @ 9:12am 
stormsend Jul 8, 2012 @ 2:04am 
without the hint i could not have done the first room. after that it was all logic. some difficult maneuvering but fun overall. a grand puzzle.
Gucci Jul 7, 2012 @ 8:53pm 
I'm not sure if I've done the 1st chamber correctly. The second chamber was great though.
Toast Jul 7, 2012 @ 8:26pm 
I couldn't figure out how to exit the first room, but I guess that means it's a quality test! I'll have to come back to it and try it again!

I also just uploaded a new map today, I'd love your feedback again! =)
croce Jul 7, 2012 @ 4:02pm 
actually managed to solve it
had to come back to it the next day to figure out the first room
very nice map
try mine :)

For me, the second part was the easiest one. May I make a walkthrough video of it?
Sleepyhead Jul 7, 2012 @ 2:17pm 
Ingenious and satisfying
cog3125 Jul 7, 2012 @ 2:07pm 
Absolutely ingenious design. Two rooms, but at least four times while I was working on it I was ready to swear it was impossible before I finally had that satisfying "AHA!" moment.
