This is a a discussion topic for the map "Interception" by satchmo which can be found here Map description: Fairly challenging puzzle involving two clean-style chambers, a funnel, a laser, and a light bridge. The puzzle is slightly more difficult than the official Portal 2 puzzles.

There should be 2-3 "AHA!" moments in the puzzle. The solution is not technically difficult to execute. If you find yourself throwing cubes or flinging over and over again, you should find an easier way. Map screenshots: Screenshots for: Interception

Version 1.57 added a Rattman den.
Version 1.60 added a pool of toxic water.

Anyone here smart enough to solve this puzzle?

You know that comes off as elitist, right?

I've been busy playing Borderlands haven't had time to play anything Portal related in awhile. I might check it out later.

Of course. I am a pediatric psychiatrist, so I can almost read minds.

Not sounding elitist has not generated any reaction from the forum, so I know if I start to insult people's intelligence, I'll get some response (and I did!).

So my plan worked flawlessly.

Yeah, but now I'm not going to play it at all. So, there's that.
Try not being a dick next time.

The original post was impersonal and copy-pasted enough (Seen your map listing on other mapping sites before with the exact same description), that's why you didn't get any response. It was, "here's my map, play it." and then "Oh you didn't play it, you must not be smart enough"

... really?

It also doesn't help that your copy-pasted description of your map sounds incredibly pompous.

This, "There should be 2-3 "AHA!" moments in the puzzle. The solution is not technically difficult to execute. If you find yourself throwing cubes or flinging over and over again, you should find an easier way." Makes you sound like a dick for an initial explanation of the map.

That's fine.

The Snarkpit is a mere shadow of its former self anyway. It's a dying community.

I will stop posting here and stick to a thriving gaming community elsewhere.
