I recall that there was supposed to be something like that. It would allow multiplayer mode to be expanded by third party developers, anyway. You can make Portal maps in Source SDK so there's that, but a proper editor WOULD make it a little more user friendly.
Ok what I meant was Once you solve the puzzle, you know how to solve it, so even though the puzzles are pretty easy, what little sense of accomplishment you get after figuring it out is gone, or at least greatly diminished. Yeah I was hoping they would offer something a little more user friendly where you could just turn on the game, look at the layout of some new maps, and click download.
A more user friendly interface would be nice. I've played a lot of ridiculous TF2 maps and mods, but that's simply been because I could find them in the server list and just join the server to have the necessary files downloaded. Having to manually download Portal maps into the game folder is more of a nuisance.
It if isn't in the released version of Portal 2, I hope they will add something in a future update.
Stand aside, tubby! You're stepping on a midget with money!
It's a Source game, that's all you really need to say. Source SDK isn't the traditional "map editior" but Portal Flash and Portal Prelude have shown me that there are some amazing people out there, so I'm not worried for a lack of maps
