My first Portal map. Let me know what you guys think.

Version 1.3
-Added a little music
-Added a RenTest folder listing under bonus maps. This is where all my maps will go when installed, to make it easier to run them.

Version 1.2:
-Fixed laggy gameplay that occured after loading a saved game, at the cost of the fancy lighting effect i had originally, :(.

Version 1.1:
-Fixed door so it doesn't open on touch
-Fixed light above door so it's X when locked, and an arrow when unlocked.
-Fixed ball spawn so it works with game loads, although game is still laggy after load, don't know why.

This was a fun map.... should make it a little more complicated....maybe more jumps to get to the door...and when you beat it you should be able to do it a warp to the begining....

Apparently so, according to his site... along with various other well known games.

Cool, Portal maps are starting to show up.

Looks like this map uses a lot of long jumps.

Hammer still doesn't support Portal with manually extracting the GCF, correct?

Here we go again.

Ok so good news! I actually beat this one! We'll start with the pluses this time. Mix it up a little.

+ Unique chamber. Reminds me of the last chamber with the scaffolding. The lights are really cool.
+ Challenging. It took me 10 minutes to complete this chamber the first time around. Considering it was one room, it felt about right.
  • No sound. Unlike ren_test2, there was no relevant AI chiming in to push me along. There were some other little things that you fixed in ren_test2, so I won't bother trying to remember what those are, since you clearly resolved those issues which I would have told you to resolve if I had bothered to remember they needed resolving.
  • Challenging. Again this is a negative as well. This chamber was about as challenging as my last point was confusing. Although I beat it in ten minutes, I think I ninja'd my way through. In other words, I think the solution I found was not the one you intended, and was much easier. Send me a pm if you want more info on that.
So, this was what I want in a Portal map. Fun and challenging. Again, this map might be too challenging for new players, but I won't deduct points for that, since no0bS could always just, you know, get better. It's not the maps fault they suck. This was not up to par with your second map though, it wasn't as creative or polished. I give it a 4.

Heh. This map was great. A little too easy, once I figured out you don't actually have to get the ball into the basket, you just have to get it to collide with the outside, and it triggers the button, even if the ball falls into the depths. You might want to fix that...
