Modding community:  This is a mod that I created solely for the purpose of bridging the gap to Portal 2, the long awaited game we all have been anticipating.  I, on one hand, could not wait for it, and downloaded as many maps as I could.  Soon, I grew tired of the old ones, and waited for more.  This mod is for people like me, who can't wait for Portal 2.  This mod is not going to be long.  There will be no storyline, and the maps are fairly short.  Remember--It's only until April.  I will not release any more patches to this mod once Portal 2 is released as well.  I will ask for feedback from the community from time to time, for I am working alone on this.  This is also my first mod, so I must know anything that I can do to perfect it.  This mod will be released soon, but do not expect any more than 5 maps.  Thank you.

This mod will have a new Portalgun model, as well as a new crosshair and co-op portals.
New Chell model.

I need to thank:
Reepblue: for the vmfs and insirational maps
Portal 2 collab group: for the Portal 2 content

Hello, modders and gamers!  It is good to be back.  Anyways, as I am sure you can find out by the title, TWP2 1.1 is coming!  But, I REALLY need some help from the community.

Ok, I know that there are a lot of glitches.  It tortures me to even think about it.  But, that is what the patch is for.  I want to have a lot of feedback to fix as much as I can.

**READ THIS**:  I am going to try to get another map out before Portal 2, but I only have 17 days (maybe less by the time you read this...)

A lot of you have given me advice and such, but it is not helpful.  Most are complaining about the Portal 2 features.  News Flash:  I do not know how to fix them!  So far, these are the best methods for making them.  If you did not know already, to use the 5th map faith plate, line yourself up with it, look directly at the portal,  and step directly forward.  I cannot change it or make it more direct.

Same with all the other features, so do not tell me about them.  I want feedback on the lighting, detail, and anything else about the maps.  BE SPECIFIC!  I get comments that say "fix lighting".  Ok, WHAT LIGHTING?  There is light in every room, so be specific. 

Do not expect this patch until sometime on the weekend or later, because my life is busy at the moment.  I have essays to write, tests to study for, and books to read.  I am a normal person, just like you.  But, modding is what I do, for the community, and if you have dowmoaded the mod or checked it out, you are the ones that make it worth it.

FYI:  Over 1000 TWP2 downloads!  Thank you!  I am honored!

Again, if you have read this article, spend a few seconds leaving a comment on improvements. 

Bonus question:  What was your favorite TWP2 map, and why?

Hey, I know this sounds weird, but can you please make a Portal 1 Texture/sound/model Pack based off this mod? I know its already been a year since portal 2 came out, but I really want to play portal 1 with these kinds of textures and sounds and such. Thanks. :D
