This is so amazing. I was wondering when something like this would be made. What's the release date?

You say there is auto portal placement? Does this mean that with triggers or something that you can force the player to only get one portal? I would love to make an attempt at an Orange Portal only map (I know I'll probably have to edit it in Hammer quite a bit, but I'm fine with that) in the PeTI editor involving crushers. They are a huge pain to set multiples up of and it's really just a lack of patience on my part, same goes for the HEP Launchers/Catchers. Also I'm glad you added multi-colored light panels. That should have been done in the beginning. I'm really looking forward to testing all this stuff out! :)

Looks awesome! But you could probably save some space on the palette by combining the Combine Ball Launcher with the catcher, and the different light panels. I'm not sure how you managed to fit all those in as it is!

unfortunately you cant combine items without having access to the source code
and until valve adds a scroll bar as I've requested.. or tabs... we will be limited to my 10 extra items.... there are some ideas I'm throwing around to get more custom items... but right now I still have to make them all and august will have to make the models

yes, the idea is to have these puzzle to require absolutely no hammer modifications.. however to get the exact effect you want.... you might have to

can't wait to see horribly placed autosaves, ready to be killed.

about the energy pallets, they've been removed for a reason, if you want to lose your eye on it, and instantly die, go play portal 1 ;)

As for the crushers: why not 128x128? that'd be much cooler ;)

well as for autosaves.. that is up to the puzzle designer... however they could be a great asset considering in all raw puzzlemaker maps you have to start at the very beginning when dying :thumbup:

As for the HEPs(High energy pelets)I realize that they were removed for good reason, however people were begging for them :lol: so I aim to please... plus they are one of the few items that I could add which would actually provide more PUZZLE possibilities. as the energy ball opens up a new world for puzzle solving... and can be used in combination with the pnuematic diversity vent... which was also removed for good reason

I didn't make the crusher model, I just recycled the one already in p2... and sadly it is 64 units too wide and tall.... 128x128 would have been much better ;)

Actually, you can combine, to a certain extent. If you inherit from ItemCubeButton you can have six types (normal, cube, ball on black and white), from ItemPaint four, or from ItemCube five. The limitation is that the only thing which can change is the VMF, not the collision area or occupied voxels or anything.

Can you find a way to put info_placement_helpers in? I know some maps need that.
