Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you see that it is a large area with a lot of puzzle elements. There is a connector and a teleporter available immediately, and there are several doors, a moving platform, a switch that is somewhat hard to find off to the side, and some fixed connectors as well. In a blocked off room, you will also find a driller. A pressure plate controls plasma doors that block the windows.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is The Mule, you have to use the moving platform to move some equipment around quite a bit.

If you are having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
The connector that activates the rail drone needs to sit a bit to the side for it to function in all of the ways you need it to function. This means you have to babysit the process a bit, it cannot be fully automated.

If you managed to get inside but are unsure what to do next:

[ hint ]
Try to get all your equipment outside. You may need to mule some other equipment out. Remember that equipment can be active when it is being carried around.


[ solution ]


Upon completion of the puzzle, the player hears another message from Cornelius Noema Messages. That is, if this is the tenth gold puzzle that the player solved, they will hear the tenth message.
