Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a room with wavy concrete shelves on three sides. On the floor are two fans with no blades, each controlled by a switch. On the left shelf, a teleporter is visible, and on the shelf above it, the progress wheel can be seen. On the right shelf, there is a hexahedron. At the end of the area, there is a room with an elevated area to the left and a lower area on the right. The lower area on the right is blocked off by a blue door controlled by a pressure plate outside. Just inside is another pressure plate and a fan angled towards the higher area on the left. That higher area has a hexahedron behind a purple barrier, another pressure plate, and another fan pointed at some glass doors with the bottom half missing.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of this puzzle is Aerial Warp, you will have to warp to an aerial location a couple of times.

If you're afraid of falling down:

[ hint ]
Near the end of the puzzle, there will come a time when you are convinced that you cannot reach some equipment, and you're about to fall down. Don't be afraid, it is possible to reach it, as long as you have enough elevation. However, it is at the very limit of your reach. I recommend that you go into third person view, and adjust your footing until you are at the very edge of the ledge. Point your camera at the exact center of the equipment you want to pick up, and you will be prompted to do so.

If you're wondering what is the purpose of the fan that pushes stuff horizontally near the back of the room:

[ hint ]
In case you get stuck inside with the teleporter, fan blades, and the hexahedron, you can push out the teleporter on top of the hexahedron through that gap. This is an alternate way to get the equipment out.

If you're struggling to gain enough elevation:

[ hint ]
You have two hexahedrons, I hope. You can't reach the top of the second hexahedron to place the teleporter on top, but if you start with just one hexahedron, and then somehow add another, it could work.
