Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a small area. To the left is a clone, a pressure plate with a fan next to it. To the right is a platform, and on a ledge up above, one can see a connector. In front of you is a blue door controlled by a blue receiver that leads to a central area. In the central area is a red receiver that controls access to the progress wheel. On the left side is a long corridor blocked off by a grate with a blue emitter, and on the right side is a similar corridor with a red emitter. There is a window between the front area and the central room, and also a ladder that you can use to go from the central room back outside.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Redshift, you have to figure out how to change the puzzle configuration from blue to red seamlessly.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
Make full use of the platform and the fan to obtain the connector.

If you're having trouble opening the outer door:

[ hint ]
One useful tip is that you can set up the connections for the connector using a clone that is up top, and then place the connector on the platform that you are currently standing on. The game will allow you to place the connector, and you will slide off.

If you're having trouble opening the inner door:

[ hint ]
Think back to how you solved Puzzle 3. Try to use a similar concept.

If you are having trouble finding the correct angles:

[ hint ]
You don't have to strain yourself. Set up some connections while riding on the platform, switch to the clone below you without putting down the connector, move to a better spot, switch back and continue setting up the connector.
