This was map i was working on shortly after Portal 2 was released, only got around to uploading it now :/
The map makes use of a custom squirrel .nut script to detect where the player lands and then it will trap them with the floor panels. After 4 seconds one of the panels will open allowing the player to "escape".

I also wanted to experment with adding a darker vibe to Portal 2. Not to remove the humour but to have a stronger dark vibe than it currently has.
The screens in the intro and exit where going to show DOS promt style messages from GlaDOS where she would nicely tell you that she has control over your life and that the only reasion you are alive is because she finds it fun to watch you scrabble around like the little lab rat taht you are.
Also to add to the dark vibe I placed a cropse in the observation to cast an errie shadow on to the other wise bare floor.

Oh and whats up with Wheatly, I don't know really. I jsut thought it might be intresting to have him talk about the map. kinda crappy :/



To have it all work required a custom squirrel .nut script file abd about 400 uniquely named tiles. I made a simple program to place and name the tiles because I did not like the thoughs of having to do it all by hand.

400 Panels was about the max i could get in before the compilers would start freaking out, took a bit of fighting to get it down to a decent limit.

Louise: Hi arkage! I'm Louise, your automated eBay agent.

I'm a computer program, not a real person, so please ask me a brief question and I'll do my best to answer.

You: Do you know where I can buy a Sporf?
Louise: As soon as you're registered and have found what you're looking for, you can start bidding. Here's how:
1. Check the item description. Make sure that the seller delivers to your country and that the payment methods they accept are OK for you. If you have any questions about the item, postage or payment, email the seller.
2. Check the seller's feedback comments to see if other eBay users have had good experiences with them.
3. Make a bid or Buy It Now.
4. Go to checkout if you're the highest bidder at the end of the auction or if you choose to Buy It Now. Find out more about buying on eBay.

NEW!!! You can now buy on eBay using eBay Mobile to help me become a better assistant, could you please tell me if the information I gave you was helpful?
- Yes, the information was helpful
- No, the information was not helpful

You: But you auto correct sporf to sport :(

Louise: Which of the following best matches your question?

You: none of them
Louise: Ok then, perhaps you could tell me in another way what you're looking for?

You: a sporf

Louise: Which of the following best matches your question?

You: no a fork, knife and spoon in one!
Louise: If you get a spoof email, forward it to spoof@ebay.co.uk 

Some warning signs that an email is fake:
- It includes a forged email address in the 'From' line - this could be a real email address that's been forged (billing@ebay.co.uk or support@ebay.co.uk).
- It has general greeting like 'Welcome eBay User'.
- It claims that eBay is updating its files or accounts.
- It says that your account is in jeopardy and you won't be able to buy or sell on eBay if you don't update it immediately.
- It asks you to enter sensitive personal information such as a user ID, password or bank account number by clicking on a link or completing a form within the email.

While many emails have links included, just remember that these links can be forged too. It's much safer to type in the web address or go to the site through your usual sign-in process than click a link in a suspicious email. You can take a tutorial on how to spot a spoof email. How else can I help you?

You: no not an email, an eating utensil!

Louise: Please could you simplify your question?

You: Nope
