FAR: Change Tides is filled with quizzes for you to complete. Some Unlock the way forward, while others will upgrade your ship to help you progress. This tutorial explains how to complete one of the first puzzles you’ll come across, the sawmill puzzle.
How to move sawmill congestion
When you first run into the sawmill, you need to get off your ship and go up the funnel blocking your path. A switch inside the building at the top will move the blockage, but it will break as soon as you use it. You need to get the repair box on the next floor up to fix it, but you can’t jump that high.
Go to the open platform to the right of that first room. There is a button you can jump to press that will cause the saw above to attempt to cut the wood. However, you need to use the nearby lever to move the wood into position first. Next, position the piece of wood so that the saw can cut through its midpoint, the point between the two pieces of metal. Then press the button to saw the wood in half.
A piece of wood will fall to the floor in front of you. Use nearby equipment to shovel wood and drag into the first room you enter. You can then hop on the wood and go upstairs, where the repair box is. Take that repair box, go back to the broken lever, and hold the box while standing near it. This will automatically fix the lever, allowing you to use it and free your ship. This puzzle teaches you how to repair things on your ship, and you should bring the repair box back to your ship, so you’ll have it when you need it.
