Use the power switch from the safe on the panel.

Look close and see that yellow-top left is 108, red-bottom left is 109, blue-bottom right is 111 and gray-top right is 110.

Distribute electricity and power places:

Arrange the knobs for water pump station:

Study the plan for electrical distribution. Look close at the distribution panel at the park.

Mordack explains the Water pump set up as:

The valve in the manhole has to be turned on and the water pump has to be powered by the four batteries (floating above the town) in parallel.

The diagram of the four batteries shows that one lead from each of the four batteries runs to each of the switch boxes. In other words, four batteries, 8 leads total, 4 leads going to two switch boxes. The fixed switch box shows that the battery 110 lead is positive (+), battery 111 lead is negative (-), and battery 108 and 109 are connected together.

To get the water pump working we need battery couples put in parallel as seen in the upper diagram of the documentation. With this documentation and the fixed switch information, we know that battery 108 has to be switched to positive and battery 109 has to be negative and that batteries 110 and 111 have to be connected together. This makes the pump operate and water available in the fountain. (Thanks, Mordack.)

Arrange the yellow 108 top left to point up (+) and red 109 bottom left to point left (-).  Arrange gray 110 top right to point down and blue 110 bottom right to point up to connect each other.

Turn the water pump on:    After arranging the electricity flow to the water pump, go to the water pump at top of stairs at edge of town.

See that there is water pressure at right gauge. Turn the valve.

Park-Fountain:    Go to the park.

Open the manhole cover on the ground. Turn the valve to allow the flow of water.

Use the empty jerry can on the top part of the fountain to get filled jerry can.

Arrange the knobs for the tram's power:

Go to the electrical distribution panel again.

Mordack explains the tram set up as:

Using all the information above and the lower part of the diagram of the documentation, all four batteries have to be put in series. Batteries 110 and 108 get connected together. Batteries 111 and 109 get connected together. Tran power is now available. (Thanks, Mordack.)

Arrange top left 108 to face top right 110 and bottom left 109 to face bottom right 111.

Cathedral:    Go to the cathedral outside the town.

Look for the X place as shown by the map-plan inside the church.

Go forward to the altar area. Turn right and click on the active spot on the ground.

Take the mechanical embryo.

Time to go:    Go back to the streetcar.

Enter the streetcar.

Open the second hatch on the floor. Use the filled jerry can on the tank's funnel.

Go to the weird machine across the ghost-shadow.

Look close and open the middle cover.

Use the mechanical embryo on the slot inside the machine

Watch what happens. That is a weird electrical connection.

Go left and forward once. See a sound enhancer (like a fly swatter).

Look at the wall and turn the knob. This opens the enhancer.

Continue to the left and see a round structure.

Open the flower bud at level 2.

To open the bud, you can do one tone at a time or if you have a good ear, do all 3 at once.

Go back to level 2.

Strings:    Check if the lever is at on (lower) position for the tone you want to check. Left is for alpha, middle is for beta and right is for gamma.

Tone:    Using the metal stick listen to the tone made by alpha only (or all 3) of the flower bud.

Go to level 3.

Double check that the wind collector at left end is already adjusted to maximum sound.

Look close at the tone selector(s). Turn the wheel(s) counter clockwise so that they are at zero (start) position.

Turn the wheel clockwise one position at a time and listen to see if it matches the tone heard when the metal stick is used on a specific flower bud part. There are 5 positions on the wheel; from lowest tone to the highest.

Do this back and forthing to check level 3 and level 2.

Match all 3: alpha, beta and gamma tones.

Try using left to right: 2 4 5 or 1 3 4.

Go to level 2:

Once you think the sound matches the flower bud parts, go to the flower bud and check it.

If correctly done, the flower bud will be open.

Walk to the opened flower and see that the flower in level 2 has pollens.

Use the bucket to collect pollen to get full bucket.

Open the flower bud at level 4.
