Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in an open semi-circular area with two hexahedrons immediately in front of you. There is a half-height grill wall ahead, as well as a ladder that leads in to the first room. On the left is a blue door that leads to the progress wheel.

In the first room, you find two swappers, each with a connector. There is a blue emitter on the back wall and a blue receiver on the front wall, next to a blue door that leads into the second room. On the left is another blue door that leads to a third room, beyond which is a fourth room with a window and a jammer that is currently jamming a blue door.

Inside the second room, there is a pressure plate that opens the door to the third room. There is also a blue receiver on that side of the wall, and a swapper with a teleporter in it.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Remote Interchange, at one point in the puzzle you will have to use a swapper to interchange something, and then travel to a remote location.

If you're stuck outside:

[ hint ]
Notice that the grill wall is quite low. You can jump over them with hexahedrons, and then pick them up from the other side

If you're unable to keep the door to the third room open:

[ hint ]
Note carefully that the game is offering you two connectors, but there's only one door that needs an emitter to stay open. Why two?

A hint about what a substantial intermediate step should be:

[ hint ]
In order to make progress in the puzzle, you need the teleporter freely available in the first room, while something is keeping the door to the third room open
