New Portal Levels

I'm sure most of you enjoyed Portal that shipped with The Orange Box or downloaded separately from the STEAM Store. There have been many user-made levels since its release, but now comes a whole mappack based on Portal: The Flash Version

Features:
  • Based on Portal:TFV
  • More than 40 test chambers.
  • Level design similar to the original Portal style
  • Level difficulty is balanced, like the original
  • New gameplay elements, such as the Electric Floors, Crushers, Blue and Red frizzles from the Flash version
  • Isn't a test chamber after a test chamber, much more than that.
  • Awesome storyline that connects to the Portal and the Half life 2 story
  • Epic moments.
  • Boss battle.
  • Epic ending.
  • The longest custom map so far, at least as far as I'm aware.

The 40MB mappack can be downloaded directly from We Create Stuff
More download locations and a few screenshots are available from the main webpage: http://portalmaps.wecreatestuff.com

Thanks to Norfolk'n'Clue

THere can never be enough new content for this game. In fact I'm going to get all jilted fanboy at Valve and claim that they should have dripped us a little episode of something out. The F4GS!!!!111onetwobucklemyshoe

It's a good pack for sure, I played it the other week and it is done along the same style as the original portal levels so it doesn't feel out of place. I'd say there's a good 2 - 3 hours worth in it on the first run through.

Edit: I'm with inertia (dunno if he meant paying), I'd have paid for an episode or level pack ($5 - $7.50) from valve, shame they seem to be more interested in giving the bonus content exclusively to Xbox360 through live though. I can't understand why they'd do that, maybe to shift more units on xbox, but what do they lose giving it to both when they have the steam store already in place.

Not sure if you are confusing Groovyf's post with the xbox levels or just backing up what I said about valve doing xbox levels, but the level pack in the OP is free, not made by valve and is very very good!

Just drop the content of the RAR file (the 4 folders) in Valve\Steam\steamapps\-youraccountname-\portal\portal and replace files if needed.
Then load the game, go to Bonus maps and Load the the Mappack from the list.

Well stuck. On the level that needs two buttons to be pressed side by side, only one cube.

Want the answer?

Should be able to get it with this:

  Spoiler: highlight to read

The shaft where the cube dropped, look up it.



Pretty much exactly how:

  Spoiler: highlight to read

Launch your self up it by placing a portal under it and jumping off the middle square. May need to use the roof for one loop before firing one into the middle.

Anyone else played a bit of Portal Prelude then? I don't know how long it is yet but I'm on to the 18th test chamber, it seems well enough made but I think the Portal FV map pack was better, or at least it was more fun...

Peggle was quite good, but I think I've only played it once, I dunno if they have but something like Peggle would be really good on a phone or some kind of hand held.
