I'm a big fan of the larger, multi-part puzzles. Now that I can marvel in my own mind-bending magnificence with the Perpetual Testing Initiative, is it possible to install autosave points into a level I have created?

No, its not. You have to use the Portal 2 SDK, as the Auto Save is an object.

The Perpetual Testing Initiative is for maps you release for the community, and are meant to be small enough that you dont need auto-saves (As auto saves are mainly used with big maps that have 5 or 6 rooms / chambers)


You can however upload maps made / edited in the Source SDK's Hammer Map Editor to the work, as part of the PTI

(Thanks to Richard Benson for informing me of that)

    It's worth adding to this that even maps made in Hammer & the SDK can be uploaded to the workshop to be part of the PTI. Commented May 11, 2012 at 15:28
  • @RichardBenson oh ok, i didnt know that you could, as i would think it could lead to people being unfairly rated, but now i know, ill add it in.... thanks Commented May 12, 2012 at 4:49
  • Gareth Jones is correct in saying that you cannot add save points into a level that you create, but you can still use the quick save feature which will then create a save point for any user that remembers to do so. Commented Mar 15, 2013 at 17:35
