Puzzle elements


To reach this puzzle, take the path to the left of Puzzle 5 and follow it to go behind the structure.

When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a long room. On the ground, there is a connector, a pressure plate, a fan, and a blue rail drone. Above the entrance door is a blue emitter. At the end of the long room is a second floor. There is a hole in the floor that is directly above the fan on the ground floor, which is blocked off with a blue door. On that floor, there is another pressure plate, a teleporter, and a blue door leading to another room behind it. That room has a pressure plate and leads to an elevated platform with two pressure plates on it, which give access to the progress wheel.


A basic hint:

If you reached the second floor but are struggling to make progress:

[ hint ]
Make sure you have brought all the equipment from downstairs. Try to connect and disconnect the rail drone a few times from a few different angles until it reaches a favorable position.

If you're unable to open the last blue gate:

If you pick up the connector in your hand, can you position yourself in some way so that the teleporter is visible?
