I really wish I had more time so I could make a map... some of the maps released so far are fantastic.

Not bad at all. My only comment would be that there's a lot of walking involved. Might be worth dotting some portalable walls around so we can portal between sections of the chamber quickly. Still, nice chamber :)


Yeah I know I miss judged size when I was building

That's always going to be true I think. The in-game editor is more just for people who don't have the time nor inclination to learn Hammer (i.e. me), but still want to make maps. Hopefully the in-game editor will bring about some really great test chambers.

It is rather addictive though, I've notched up 7 hours in the past 2 days putting together a test chamber and it's not even half done. Credit where it's due to the Portal map designers, making a portal test chamber is hard!

I must remind myself to try out those angry tests. I noticed them on the portal news feed on Steam and completely forgot to check them out.


The cool thing is, the editor just uses VMF (Valve Map Format) files internally, so you can make a level in the editor and try it out, then load the file directly into Hammer for fine tuning.

Edit: I'm actually entirely wrong, it uses a new format called "P2C", which it converts to VMF when you publish/play the map (You can edit that as normal though)

Not bad, but I think I cheated.

Nice chambers! I Liked the first and second ones (the second was my favourite). TBH I didn't much care for the third one though.
