    Currently I'm thinking you put a dropper over a faith plate which launches the sphere across the room. The sphere hits the button, and drops into a fizzler. Dropper makes new sphere, and it starts again. Still verifying game cache or I would test it myself.

    EDIT: Fizzler isn't even needed. Just have the button trigger the dropper. It will spawn a new one when it gets pressed. You can use a fizzler as a NOT gate.

    EDIT2: I made a proof of concept.
    Note: Spoiler contains puzzle solution.

    Yep, it's time to Sendificate.

    EDIT: Also available via Steam Workshop.

    Did not know test subjects were exiles.

    Does it exist in any Workshop maps yet, or is it just an object for Hammer?

    Re: [Portal 2] Map Making Initiative

    Oh, most definitely something in hammer. The link isn't even to the workshop. But still, thing of beauty, etc.

    If I edit a post that quotes another one which contains an image, then I'm probably chopping the image out.

    This is true in this case! Spoilering repeat images is a quiet bugbear of mine.

    Anyway, you can just look in the post history for what I've changed, because it's your post!

    It's very confusing at first, but once you get past the first room it's smooth sailing.

    For all those who like Cave Johnson, have twenty-five minutes of Cave Johnson. All in one video.

    I laughed really hard at the new Cave lines. They Live reference, the Matriarch world, all that jazz. 100% hilarity.

    This makes perfect sense.

    And the figure cut out from the Mann family photos is Cave's grandfather.

    Holy cow, he stopped the resonance cascade in one universe!
    Man these are so great.
    I only wish there were more.
    And infinite amount, to be exact.

    Hmm...., better find alternate universe versions of Valve...

    ... Wait a second...
    Maybe one of those have Episode 3 released! :O

    Wait, no, that's crazy...
    I HAVE to blow everything up! It's the only way to prove I'm not CRAZY!

    Wait... Cave Prime canceled the GLaDOS project... does that mean that the storyline of Portal doesn't take place on Earth Prime?

    Re: [Portal 2] Map Making Initiative

    In math, usually the prime of a variable (as in, A prime, B prime, etc.) is the second one.

    Ah, I see. Cave Prime is from Earth 1, while Cave Johnson is from Earth.
    ...But it's probably just me.

    Re: [Portal 2] Map Making Initiative

    Yeah, probably.
    I think that Earth is where the Portal and Portal 2 storylines happen, while Earth 1 is the first Earth that came up with the mutiverse theory. (there's a reason that I said first- listen until the end of the video :3)

    Just finished creating my second map. Feel free to play it and my other and let me know what you think!

    Warning: my maps don't follow conventional solutions ;D

    Re: [Portal 2] Map Making Initiative

    Since the Cave Johnson who narrated all the short videos (http://www.youtube.com/user/Valve/feed, scroll down) before Portal 2 seems to be alive in relatively the present (and not, say, old Aperture), I've started to wonder if that Cave Johnson is in a separate universe from the one in the Lavos Glados Timeline, i.e. Portal 1 and Portal 2. Bankruptcy would be the least of that Aperture's problems.

    Confession: I did not listen to that video, as great as it sounds (as indicated by the posts above me and by my experience with the quotes I've heard), because I enjoy hearing the new clips in test chambers. I think it adds something, which is why Valve bothered in the first place. *shrug*

    Kind of open and sandboxy. The faith plates and gels are just for fun.
