Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you see the main area has a fan and a driller readily available. The fan is controlled by a switch. At the middle of the far side of the room is an area blocked off by a blue door. Inside is a blue emitter, a hexahedron, and a pressure plate. The left wall of this little room is made of copper. On the right side is a small entirely enclosed room with a connector in it, one of whose walls is made of copper. On the left side is a tower, at the bottom of which is the progress wheel blocked off by a blue door, and the top of which has a copper wall with a blue receiver behind it.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of this puzzle is Placement, you will have to place the connector at such a position that it has unobstructed view of the things it wants to connect.

If you find that the connector is sliding away:

[ hint ]
Keep the connector on top of a hexahedron. This does mean you have to retrieve the hexahedron from inside the small room.

If you're having trouble keeping the blue wall open:

[ hint ]
Consider if it is even important to keep it open, or if the angles will make not not necessary.
