Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a room facing a back section separated by a full height grate. On the left is a room blocked off by a blue door with a connector inside. The blue door opens with a red receiver outside. On the right is another room with the progress wheel in it, and it needs a blue receiver to be activated before it can be accessed. Opposite that room is a section of the wall made of drillable material. A driller is available in the main area.

In the back section is a clone. To the left is a room with a connector and a blue emitter in it, that can be accessed by pushing on a pressure plate just outside, and a hexahedron is conveniently available there. There is another pressure plate that controls access to the right section of the room, which has the drillable wall, and a red emitter behind another blue door with a pressure plate outside.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Two-Body Problem, you have to think about fully using both clones to solve the problem, often looking for the correct angles to switch clones once the next stage is ready.

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
Try to get the first connector, and use that to get the second connector.

If you're running out of things to put on pressure plates:

[ hint ]
Feel free to stand on pressure plates yourself, but make sure that there is a clear view to your clone so you can jump to it once you're ready.

If you're wondering about the exact positioning of the connectors:

[ hint ]
It is not that precise. Feel free to put the connectors roughly where they need to be.

If you need a step by step plan:

[ hint ]
First task is to get the first connector from the rear. Second is to use it to grab the second connector from the front. Finally, use both of them to open the progress wheel.
