Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a small area. to the right is a red emitter behind a half-height grate. On the floor are two fans, and in a decorated area ahead of you is a platform. In the middle of the room is a connector, and behind it is full height grate blocking the center, but you can walk around it and find a clone. There is a blue door leading to a small area at the back with two red receivers and a tall ladder that leads back outside, and another blue door that leads to the progress wheel.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Dual Stream, you will have to take advantage of the two streams of air.

If you're holding the connector but nothing is happening:

[ hint ]
A connector only begins working once it is placed down. Holding it up won't work. You have to put it somehwere.

If you're stuck trying to activate both the receivers:

[ hint ]
You shouldn't try to activate both of them at the same time. They serve different purposes, observe them carefully.

If you're stuck trying to gain enough elevation:

[ hint ]
Using one of the clones, step into the air stream so that you can access the head area of another clone.

If you made your way to one of the areas, but now you can't change the connections:

[ hint ]
Prepare all the connections ahead of time, then the only remaining work should be to move from stream to stream.
