The ThinkingWithPortals Map Showcasing Thread

Making something out of materials and ideas I had before. Insparation comes from QBEH-1: The Atlas Cube

@Josepezdj: Your map has a modern style, and unlike the others, I find the design nice; In my opinion you should add more wood texture, it will prettier. Especially as you, DaMaGepy, Haggis, MrBoss, Kylox (and me as I can) to my knowledge are the only ones that take pains to create maps with a really different design compared to Portal 2, so I approve this initiative and your puzzles have never disappointed me! :)

@KyloX: Good job :thumbup:

Here's some more screenshots.

...and as soon as I begin to feel adequate, more of this comes along. :c
Great job, though!

i do not agree with your opinion please remove yourself

Good job! And all the elements (wires pipes barrels et looks logical, unlike some other map, so they all feel realistic.
However the pictures looks lil dark, maybe little stronger lights or ambient would make it better. I like darker atmosphere and hallways but as I figured lot of player's monitor or video setings are set darker and when I made my maps average bright, many complained that they barely see because their portal or monitor was too dark, so a lil extra brightness can't be bad, and that many light normally should give out more lighting in real life, for example in last pic's ceiling etc.
And the smoke/steam should come out near a ceiling light so it doesnt stand out that much (as if its a fluorescent steam from the dark)... I know, I'm picky :)

-= Check out my maps: workshop, and their .vmf sources: homepage =-

To be honest, I've tried many different lighting and this is the only one that really fits the atmosphere/theme of the Mod.
It's our style :P
However it is true that some people have darker monitor. In fact, I work with two monitor and one of which is quite dark. it's pretty hard to see the details in it. We might make a different build for people with darker monitor, so the maps are slightly more bright.

More screenshot are coming soon.
Also, we will experiment with some Colour Correction. Sounds fun.

I'd brighten things up and then let people adjust based on the slider. Remember: light contrast=illusion of darkness

When life gives you lemons, make apple juice and have everyone wonder how you did it.
