Up for a challenge, try this map
This is a large chamber in which the first three rooms are non-linier and you can solve them in any order you wish. These rooms are challenging but not very difficult. You must solve all three rooms to move on to the final room.

However, the final room will give you problems as it is the hardest by far. While I was putting this map together I discovered an eccentricity related to the physics of the game.

Can you make it through? Give it a try and find out.

There is no companion cube in this map as the editor had informed be that I reached the entity limit. Therefore I had to cut it from the final version.

I'm in!

I couldn't figure out how to get to the buttons in the last room, that must be the eccentricity you meant. Luckily for me blue gel alone works too. One room can be skipped entirely and the other one didn't go exactly as you planned I'm afraid.

Correct, Skipping a room was not intended, I will fix that bug, thank you for the video. The solution to the last room is not quite how it was intended to be solved but it works and I enjoy watching how others solve a map with a different technique.

I've made some changes to this map that should take away the unintended solutions that I saw and one that no one saw. As a result, this map is harder than is was before.

Care to try again?

Oh, I see now. There wasn't an unknown mystic solution that I missed, it's just hidden portal surfaces. I'm not a big fan of placing portal surfaces out of sight. The difficulty that results from that is contrived in my opinion. To show you my protest I chose another unintended solution, skip the same room and use only blue gel again. XD

Brilliant, I love it. I want you as a tester for future maps. I'll correct those problems and see if you can do it again. By the way, I'm not sure that I "hid" the portal surfaces. You can see them if your in the right position, or am I being an ♥♥♥ for doing that?

Please, give it another go. One simple change that I made should take care of how you solved it before.

Oh, Toncica will find anything you didn't consider already. He's quite good.
Andi 49 Oct 8, 2012 @ 1:52pm 
I can see that, he is very good.
Andi 49 Oct 11, 2012 @ 3:09pm 
I'm guessing that I gotcha this time?
