Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in an L shaped area. To the left is a red emitter and a connector. On the right side is a driller and a swapper with a teleporter in it. There is a drillable wall that leads to the first inner room, which is also visible through a glass window.

In the first inner room, there is another connector, a pressure plate, a red rail drone with a path that leads across a blue door to the second inner room. There is a ladder that leads back outside.

In the second inner room, there is another pressure plate, and a blue door that leads to an elevated platform.

This elevated platform shares a drillable wall with the room with the progress wheel on it.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Transference, you have to think about several types of transfers: how do you transfer equipment across drillable walls, and how do you transfer the rail drone from one place to another.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
You need a second connector first, and that's only in the first inner room. How do you get there?

If you're theorizing about how to keep some blue walls open:

[ hint ]
Instead of thinking about the puzzle, try to execute your plan. You will find that some of the puzzle elements are setup favorably in such a way that things fall into place

If you're struggling to get equipment onto the penultimate platform:

[ hint ]
There is an angle from the outermost room, across the grate on the left side, where a corner of the innermost platform is visible clearly. With line of sight, you can do something.
