Hiya all

I’ve been trying to recreate the covayor belt puzzle from Natla’s Mines in TR1 – The bit where you saw the fuse on one end of the belt but couldn’t reach it, you went off and pulled a lever that starts the machine and it pops out the other end

Any ideas how this can be done? :mad2:

Many Thanks

Looks like flip maps to me. You never actually saw the puzzle item move. Two puzzle items, one on the floor where you pick it up, which is marked invisible and only becomes visible when triggered by the switch. The sound of the conveyor belt could be any machinery item triggered to the switch (and could even be in a room not in your actual map so you just get the sound). The moving conveyor belt would be animating textures in the flipped room.
