Entry for the Complex Door Mini-Compo.

Helpful hint: Don't block the door when it closes, or you'll screw it up. And the way to open it is only on one side, so get stuck on the other side with it closed and only Noclip will save you. Couldn't be bothered to make the corridor into a loop.

Well another button at the other side of the corridor would have been quite helpful..
The door was quite nice, I liked the round-ish look.
Those little lids to close the gap between the door hole were my favourite. :D

Nice work. I'll give this a 4, since it wasn't re-usable.

Well, the button is a two-way one, meaning you can close it as well, and you can only really get trapped on the other side if you do a runner.

Oh, and I just tried putting another button on the other side, by cloning the first, and of course that didn't work because I can't target two things with a trigger_changetarget.

It's really very cool and the sequence works flawlessley--which is unique and cool--, but it suffers from some bad flaws imo:

The door mechanisims are very blocky. Some or all of them also intersect the wall which is never a good thing. Lastly, there are visible gaps in the wall which = bad.

Again, very unique, cool, and well though out, but I think you can make this better ;)

After replaying this, I have to say this door has one of the more unique mechanisms to it and is very well done.

The aforomentioned small occlusions which wouldn't have been really difficult to fix really dropped my rating of this map. Still, it's excellent work.

A great entry, good work!

Ill have to admit, that from pressing the button so much, I completly fucked up this door, so maby a longer wait before reseting the button will make it better. Overall the door was pretty interesting, sort of a dull area around it, but the door matters more, such as I liked the part where when the door goes down and it gets closed up in the ground. Some things could have been added more, but its still pretty good, 4*'s for a still good try.
