color coding?

This is such an awesome game! Now I can't figure out my next move. I have killed the red beam, blew up all the volume projectors, been to the Mayer's office, top of the tower, junkyard, and rotated the sphere in Hunrath. I have visited Maray only to be stopped by a closed door. I also have visited Kaptar at both ends by the red beam and at the swing door which i cannot penetrate the membrane yet. I also have been all around the the machinery top and bottom and saw the panel with all the switches and knobs that make no sense yet. So I can't yet lower that ladder. I have seen the tree there but can't get near it. So I'm guessing that the color seed transporters have something to do with the color membranes under the tree in Hunrath? I read on the Forum that C.W. moves the machinery away from the door leading to the room above his lair? When does that happen? Is that also where the "war room" is that was also mentioned in the Forum? :?

You haven't explored enough of Maray yet. There are probably paths that you have not yet found (many are easily overlooked there).
There is more than one way into Kaptar.
The colour projected by the seed swap machine will give you clue as to which world it will connect to.
The door above C.W.'s shed only becomes accessible towards the end of the game.
The War Room - No, it is somewhere else.

If you're being blocked from exploring any of Maray by a closed door, then you need to find another way in so that you can open the door. Also, I'd suggest spending some more time exploring Kaptar. Don't waste too much time on the panel at this point.

I went back to Kaptar and now have all of the machinery working and the pistons connected; everything but the upper level I believe. I have retraced all of my steps and found no other way into Maray except via the seed swap transporter which leads to that closed door. I cannot find another way in. I've tried all the the membranes I have access to. The other 2 seed transporters take me to Kaptar. Please point me in the right direction for my next move!

Hunrath isn't the only world with swap machines to Maray.

Ok that gives me an idea. I 'll try that. Thank you!

you first need to solve more of Kaptar before you can get past the closed door in Maray.

I suggest your next move would be to get rid of the red beam in Kaptar to open up more paths. ;)

Ok I give up. How do you turn off the red beam in Kaptar? I also noticed the seed transporter in the junk yard is sitting on a wooden barrel. I can also turn that barrel into a decorative table. Is that significant?

Think about how you disabled the beam in Hunrath. Maybe you can do the same thing in Kaptar?

I FINALLY figured it out! WooHooo!! I blasted that red beam in Kaptar. I must say that was very ingenious how you did that. Thank you for not telling me outright how to do that because it was more fun to finally get that "A-ha" moment. Kaptar is an amazing place!

I try not to give out direct solutions because, as you said, figuring it out is way more fun! Glad my hint worked for you.
