Siambra Dhu Puzzle Piece

Post by Marthos » September 22nd, 2018, 8:34 pm

My lack of intelligence is showing again. I'm at a loss at figuring out how a certain puzzle piece works in Siambra Dhu. It's a "T" intersection piece that doesn't seem to get powered on from the sides. I can power it on from the floor, but the power stops and won't transfer any further. Here's where I'm at..

Assumptions are in RED. I believe that this is the only way to get the power down the hallway to open the door, based on the pieces that aren't movable. So I need to power up this T intersection on the wall to bring the power back down to the floor and out of the room. The areas in Green are where I'm stuck...I can't seem to get these T intersection pieces to move the power along.

1. Why isn't the piece circled in green getting power?
2. Am I missing something obvious (most likely)

Those particular pieces (you can identify them by the "stem" of the T which is bulkier and IIRC curls up slightly compared to a normal T piece) require power from both sides before it emits from the middle. That particular room is a bit of a brain-bender.

Yeah it took me abit to see those specific parts as well.

The room in question has to be solved all over the room including the ceiling, dont try to find an easy solution like in the other rooms but try to make use the space you have.

I was stuck on this and about to ask questions to try to figure it out when I suddenly had an epiphany. It turns out there are 3 types of T intersections:
  1. Power flows through in all directions
  2. Power is generated on the bottom of the T only if both sides are powered
  3. Power is blocked across the T if you power the bottom of the T
Type number 3 was not obvious. Figuring that out made it suddenly easy to make it work.
