O Criador de Puzzle (também conhecido como Puzzle Maker ou Editor) é uma parte da Iniciativa de Teste Perpétuo em Portal 2, uma DLC lançada em 8 de Maio de 2012[1] permitindo a criação de Câmaras de Teste Single Player e Cooperativo num simples editor dentro do jogo.[1]

A fim de criar um puzzle Cooperativo, a câmara tem que ser marcada como "Cooperative puzzle" (Puzzle Cooperativo) dentro do menu "Arquivo" do Criador de Puzzle.

Visão Geral

O editor foi mencionado pela primeira vez dentro do The Final Hours of Portal 2, "[Um navegador de level dentro do jogo não seria de muito uso, a menos que] a Valve descubra como desenhar os mapas de Portal 2 por um processo mais fácil. Ele tem um plano lá também, ele vem na forma de um editor de níveis simplificado [...] um Photoshop para câmaras de teste".[2]

O "Criador de Puzzle" não parece ter um único nome oficial; Valve publicou um post no blog em 27 de Outubro de 2011 se referindo ao editor como o "Puzzle Creator" (Criador de Puzzle)[3], mais tarde referiu a ele no post no blog em 27 de Abril de 2012 como "Puzzle Maker" ("Fazedor" de Puzzle) [4] e simplesmente chamado como "Editor" no jogo.


O Criador de Puzzle apresenta uma representação estilizada de uma câmara de teste sendo construída; apresentando uma simplificada, brilhante e lisa paleta de cores, e nos modelos e texturas faltam o nível de detalhe que eles teriam no jogo.

  • Drag a trajectory target back onto its faith plate to create a vertical launch.

As the puzzle creator is designed for ease of use, certain limitations apply. These limitations can be overcome by importing the map into Hammer in the Portal 2 Authoring Tools.

  • The entity limit is set to 1750; the actual number of items placeable by the user is much lower than this.
  • The editor is block based, so complex geometry such as curves and angles smaller or greater than 90 degrees cannot be achieved.
  • Chambers are isolated, so sequences of chambers cannot be published as one map using the Puzzle Creator alone.
