    The Code III: The End - A minecraft challenge map
    
    Walkthrough version 1.0
    
    Versions
    0.1 - Initial walk through after having solved things a few times
    0.2 - add headings, reorder the walk through so codes are solved first, and
    rename items, so that concepts are more easily understood
    1.0 - refine headings and content, and reorder again so that half the codes
    are solved first for a more efficient experience, and add a TOC
    
    TODO
    - the coloured dials might be more effectively solved in rainbow order
    - and the purple code is a simple one and should be solved earlier
    - The coloured beams section could be done earlier

    1. Introduction
    ===============
    
    The Code begins with you holding a piece of paper with the code 35792.
    
    You approach an anvil down a long black corridor, and when you arrive there
    you will find behind you that it is the same corridor from The Code I. They
    aren't used in this challenge map, but it's a very nice callback to the
    earlier maps.
    
    Put the paper in the hopper, and a saddle appears. Get on the saddle and you
    will be taken through an introduction to the challenge.
    
    2. The Starting Room
    ====================
    
    You arrive in an alcove of the starting room, with a button in front of you.
    Push the button to be taken to the map room. There are map room buttons at
    many places throughout, which can be useful to to help you orient yourself.
    
    In the map room select the map in your hotbar, to allow the maps to update.
    You cannot take the maps with you though when you leave.
    
    The only way to leave here is to kill yourself in lava, and you return back to
    the starting room. The lava kill is the most common technique used throughout
    the map for you to return to a previous locations.
    
    In the starting room, there is an empty alcove across from the button. Go
    around the corridor in a clockwise direction to the back and there is an
    alcove with a block of dirt in it. Carry on around clockwise to the front
    alcove and it has changed to have a dispenser in there. Carry on around
    clockwise to the back and there is now a block of wood at the top of the back
    alcove. Come back clockwise again to the front and you find that it's an empty
    alcove.
    
    The Code III consists of many non-euclidian puzzles where the rooms change
    based on where you move. Circle the starting room until the front alcove has
    the dispenser. Get the shovel from the dispenser and head back the way you
    came to the back alcove and use it on the dirt. When you break the dirt and
    carry on anti-clockwise to the front alcove, it now has a hole heading to a
    room below.
    
    That lower room has a dispenser with an axe, and a wool-covered entrance. Take
    the axe and use the jump boost that the lower room gives you to head back up
    and break the wood in the back alcove. Come back around to the front and the
    alcove now has an upper passage too.
    
    3. Yellow Dial Indicator
    ========================
    
    Go down the alcove again and jump up two levels, and you will find a room with
    a ladder and a button on yellow clay. Press that button and an indicator
    appears. Pressing the button results in the indicator moving clockwise around
    the dial. This is the yellow dial, and you need to have the indicator in
    correct position on the dial.
    
    There are six colour dials in all, and when all of them are set correctly they
    will grant you access to a colour code room.
    
    4. Shears Dispenser Challenge
    =============================
    
    Go up the ladder and you'll find that it has an inaccessible dispenser, and
    the room above it has an anvil and directly above the dispenser, some lava.
    Head back down and circle around clockwise and you'll find that it's the same
    room with lava and a blocked off ladder heading down. Turn around and you'll
    find the anvil, and the way you came in is blocked off. You can use the lava
    to return back to the starting room.
    
    Press the button for the map room and select the map, and it updates to show
    the new rooms that you've found. Rooms with a coloured dot in the corner are
    where you'll find the colour dials. Green dots are for correctly set dials,
    and red dots are where you still need to give the dial the right setting.
    
    The one that you currently see on this map is for the yellow dial. While it is
    possible to set the dials by trial and error, another area lets us have the
    correct settings for them.
    
    Head back to anvil room with the lava, and reach down through the lava it to
    the dispenser beneath. If you just click on the shears they will invariably
    fall in to the lava, so shift-click on them instead to move them to your
    inventory. You'll also find that a rapidly changing strange character appears
    in your talk history. That is for a puzzle that we'll come to later.
    
    The next room clockwise from the lava has a ladder that goes up to a view of
    giant cube, and access to a dispenser. This is a location that we'll keep in
    mind for later an it will become quite useful.
    
    The rest of the passageway we'll come back to later on when we can do
    something more useful with it.
    
    Head back to the lava and use it to get  to the starting room, and go down in
    the alcove and use the shears on the white wool. They reveal a passageway
    which has a red tile on the ground. Passing over that red tile gives you a
    jump potion, that will be useful later on to access another challenge too.
    
    5. The Colours Room
    ==================
    
    After you pass over the red tile on the ground, there is a block puzzle room,
    but first - turn around and head back the way you came. You'll find that the
    passageway no takes you instead to a room with six clay colours on the wall,
    and lava in the middle of the floor that you can use to get back to the lower
    alcove.
    
    In this colour room it's useful to take note that these are the six colours
    that are primarily used for the challenges. It can be easy to mistake some of
    the colours for others, so the reminders in this room are very useful.
    
    Beyond the colours room is a frozen fountain challenge that we'll come to
    later on when we can do more past there, so head on back through the corridor
    that you just came from.
    
    6. Block Puzzle Challenge
    =========================
    
    In the block puzzle room you'll find a red dial selector to your right, a
    block puzzle challenge on the wall across from you, and three passages across
    the room. One in the top-left corner, one on the ground, and another high up
    beside the block puzzle.
    
    On the ground of the room is a design that can be used like gamepad arrows,
    letting you move a block on the puzzle wall. In this block puzzle the block
    keeps moving in the same direction until it comes to another block, similar to
    a puzzle game called Orbox (check it out, it's great).
    
    Take the exit that's opposite from the red dial selector, and at the red mark
    on the ground take the passage to your right. You'll find yourself high up
    beside the puzzle looking down on the large room that you just came from, and
    further progress is blocked by a two-high wall.
    
    If the block can exit out the gap in the side of the puzzle, it can then help
    you get up to the next room.
    
    You can use the markings on the ground of the block puzzle room to move the
    block. Stand at an appropriate position and the block moves in that direction.
    If the block is moved to an unrecoverable position, it gets reset back to its
    starting position.
    
    From the block's starting position you want to move it right, up, then left,
    so that it's resting with just one block between it and the exit, and from
    there down, left, up, and you can then move it left out of the puzzle.
    
    .--------------------.
    |        []    []    |
    |  []            []  |
    |    []    []        |
    <----^ []<- ^        |
    |    |   |  |        |
    |  {}+---+-->[]      |
    |  []<---v       []  |
    |        []          |
    |          []        |
    `--------------------'
    
    Once the block has successfully left the puzzle, the floor markings have no
    further effect.
    
    You can now go from the passageway to where the block ended up, which lets you
    now step up in to the red dial setting room.
    
    7. Green Code Room
    ==================
    
    Before going further in to the colour dial settings room though, head on back
    to the passageway, which goes past a map button and a paper dispenser, and the
    end of the hallway exits to a force field challenge. Before that if you loop
    around to the left you'll find that the hallway has a strange property where
    one side of it is shorter than the other, with the green code room being on
    the short side of the passageway.
    
    The colour code rooms are where you enter the codes to help you complete the
    map. The green code room has symbols with the following codes:
    
                           .       .---.       .   .
                           |       |   |       |   |
    .   .     .---.    .---+---    |---+---    |---|
    |   |     |   |    |   |       |   |       |   |
    `---'     `---'    `   '       `---'       `---'
    
    These symbols and the numbers for them are found throughout the map. There are
    nine symbols in all, and from the colours room we were in earlier we can tell
    that there are 6 colour code rooms.
    
    We don't know enough yet about the symbols though to give a correct answer to
    it.
    
    If you go to the other side of the corridor to the map button, you'll see that
    a solid ring of colour is used to indicate the location of the green code
    room.
    
    Use the lava to get back, and head to the end of the corridor for the force
    field room.
    
    8. Force Field Challenge
    ========================
    
    At the end of the corridor from the block puzzle challenge is the force field
    room, with the number 8 on the wall. This is the number for one of the
    symbols, which is at the other end of the force field room. The force fields
    currently stop us from being able to get there too.
    
    Pressure plates on the ground change whether some of the force fields are
    active or not. A partial solution can give you access to the symbol on the
    other side of the room, but a full solution turns off all of the force fields
    completely, giving you access to the central hole which leads to the final
    challenge.
    
    Of the four pressure plates, they can be numbered from the entrance in a
    clockwise direction with the first being at the entrance, and after you step
    on it the next pressure plate you can get to would be number 4.
    
    .-------.
    | 3   4 |
    |   +   |
    | 2   1 |
    `----- -'
         | |
    
    A correct solution for the force fields when all four sections are blocked
    off, is 1, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4. Which effectively means that you step on pressure
    plates as you enter the room and carry on through to the other plate, and then
    circle clockwise around the room stepping on pressure plates as you come to
    them.
    
    The symbol at the back of the room looks like an old wind-up toy key.
    
    .---.
    |   |
    |---|--- This wind-up key symbol in the force field room is number 8
    |   |
    `---'
    
    There are code rooms throughout the map, one for each colour, that use these
    symbols for the codes. Other symbols with their corresponding number will be
    found as we progress throughout the map too.
    
    When all force fields have stopped, you now have access to the exit in the
    centre of the room.
    
    9. Beneath the Force Field Room
    ===============================
    
    Dropping down the middle of the room there is another symbol answer, in the
    shape of a lower case u:
    
    .   .
    |   | This lower case u beneath the force field room is number 5
    `---'
    
    This means that we now have two numbers for the green code room, 5__8_.
    
    Going in the direction of the number 5 sign takes you back to the green
    corridor. Go back in to the force field room down the centre, now in the
    direction of the symbol sign and you are taken to the Escher cube challenge.
    
    10. The Escher Cube
    ===================
    
    This is the final challenge of the map where you have to think in four
    dimensions in an Escher-like manner to complete the map, but you have plenty
    more to do before you can solve this one. Each face of the cube is for each of
    the six colour code rooms. When a code room is solved, you will be able to
    take the the wool block of that colour from the centre of this cube.
    
    This room contains a huge cube in the centre of the room, with a differently
    coloured section on each side. The centre of each cube contains wool which you
    must remove, but are only allowed to do so once you have solved the
    appropriately coloured code room.
    
    To the left of the entrance is a pressure plate that adds a section of
    walkway, and when you step off of it the section goes away in an explosion.
    Beside that pressure plate is a passage that is currently blocked off by
    another piece of walkway.
    
    Carrying on past the pressure plate you find your self winding around and
    back, to a rotated view of the room. The pressure plate you stood on before
    can be seen below you. Going around to the other pressure plate that you see
    in that area, it removes the piece of walkway that was getting in your way
    before, but it's your only way out of the area. As soon as you get off the
    pressure place it comes back.
    
    What is needed is for that first pressure plate to be triggered, while you
    head to the second pressure plate to activate that one.
    
    You can drop items on to the pressure plates, but you have nothing on you
    because the challenge is careful to remove any items from you before you come
    to the cube.
    
    What can be done is to go right back to the beginning, where at the top of a
    ladder is a dispenser and a view in to the large cube room.
    
    If you head back to where you came from you'll find that the orange exit winds
    around past some lava and down to a rotated view of the cube with orange
    facing up. Head back to the lava, and then in the direction of the 5 back to
    the corridor where the green code room is.
    
    Go through the red dial chamber to get to the colours room, and use that lava
    to get back to the start.
    
    11. Colour Dial Settings
    =======================
    
    Head back up to the red dial setting room (beside the block puzzle) and you'll
    see that is has two exits, one to the left and right. There are a series of
    dial setting rooms below, but for each one only one of the two exits gets you
    to the next room. The wrong exit brings you back to the corridor between the
    colours room and the block puzzle room.
    
    The way down from the red dial setting room is left, right, left, left, right,
    right.
    
               x
             .- ----. .---.
             |Purple|- Gre x
             `- ----' |een|
               |      |   |
      ^      .---.    `---'
      |      |   |      |
    .- ----. |Yel|    .- ----. .---.
    |Orange|- low x   |Blue  |- Red x
    `- - --' `---'    `- ----' |   |

                               `- -'
                                 ^
                                 |
    
    The red dial setting room shows that the red dial needs to be set to the
    bottom left.
    
          |      |

    From the red dial setting room head left to the blue dial setting, where the
    blue dial needs to be set at the top right.
    
     oooo |      |

          |      |
    
    From the blue dial setting go right to the green dial setting where the green
    dial needs to be set to the left.
    
          |      |
          |      |

          |      |
    
    From the green dial setting go left to the purple dial setting where the
    purple dial needs to be set straight up.
    
          | oooo |
          | o  o |
          | oooo |

          |      |
          |      |
    
    From the purple dial setting go left again to the yellow dial setting where
    the yellow dial needs to be set at the top right.
    
          |      | oooo
          |      | o  o

          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    
    And lastly from the yellow dial setting you go right to the orange dial
    setting where the orange dial needs to be set at the bottom left, the same as
    for the red dial.
    
          |      |
          |      |

    Here is a summary of all of the correct dial indicator positions:
    
     Blue |Purple|Yellow
          |      |
    ------+------+------
     Green| .--. |
          | `--' |
    ------+------+------
      Red |      |
    Orange|      |
    
    12. Dog-shaped Symbol
    =====================
    
    In the orange dial setting room you will see in the left exit a dog-shaped
    symbol, and in the right exit the number 6.
    
        |
    .---+--- This dog-shaped symbol is number 6
    |   |
    `   '
    
    We now have three numbers for the green code room, 5_68_.
    
    Drop down the right exit with the number 6 sign, and you will find yourself at
    the start of a new puzzle section. To the left is a parkour pillars room, to
    the right is a switch that's embedded deep and high on the wall, and and ahead
    is a passageway with an exit that is currently blocked off and beyond it, a
    dispenser.
    
    13. Purple Dial Selector
    ========================
    
    The parkour pillars room has a map button directly across from the entrance, a
    lava exit beside it that goes back to the red dial setting area, and the
    centre of the room has a series of pillars.
    
    To the right of the entrance is the purple dial selector. Set the purple dial
    to it's correct setting in the up position.
    
          | oooo |
          | o  o |
          | oooo |

          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    
    Exit the map room and you'll be back at the parkour pillars.
    
    14. Parkour Pillars
    ===================
    
    When you attempt to parkour your way to the top of the pillars you'll find
    that there's another number and symbol that can be seen, but they're too far
    away to be seen. The jump to them cannot be made either, so it looks like a
    cleverer solution is needed here.
    
    If you look to the ceiling you will see some steps up there, which would be
    useful if the room was upside down.
    
    Head out of the puzzle room, and to the right is a new chamber with a 6 on the
    wall. It's odd that this should be a 6 too, because we already have 6 from up
    in the orange dial setting room.
    
    15. World Flip Chamber
    ======================
    
    Go to the recessed high lever, and pull it. A block moves up at the pillar
    room, and one also comes down from the entrance to the passageway.
    
    Go in to the chamber and down the hole, and behind you there is a trident
    symbol that is rotating. No, the entire room is rotating too, until everything
    is upside down. When we drop down, we find that it wasn't a 6 on the wall
    after all, but is actually a 9.
    
    ---.
       |
    ---+--- This trident symbol in the world-flip chamber is number 9
       |
    ---'
    
    The lava in the chamber will return you back to the right-way-up world.
    
    16. Jump-boost Dispenser
    ========================
    
    Now you can head up and out to the passage where you are stopped by a 3-high
    wall, which has a dispenser with a jumping potion in it labelled as the number
    8. It's not enough to get over the 3-high wall though, so take the jumping
    potion and go back and in to the lava to turn things right-way up again, and
    you'll find that in the passageway at the 2-high wall that your potion allows
    you to jump over to get past it.
    
    17. Time Travel Chamber
    =======================
    
    At the end of the passage you'll find yourself in the time-travel chamber,
    with a very clever presentation of time passing quickly with wind blowing,
    trees growing, blocks crumbling, etc.
    
    Back down the passage from where you came a wall has crumbled away resulting
    in a side-passage to the right.
    
    18. The Crumbled Passage
    ========================
    
    In the crumbled passage you will find the blue dial selector, which needs to
    be set at the top left.
    
     oooo |      |
     o  o |      |
     oooo |      |
    ------+------+------
          | Blue |
          |      |
          | Dial |
    ------+------+------
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    
    Just left of the blue dial is a dispenser, with a book from the author that
    gives thanks to several people.
    
    Above that dispenser is another symbol and number answer on a tree. You can
    get up there from the side of the tree that's closest to the entrance, and
    jump your way to a side-ledge, across to another tree, around it to a ledge,
    and from there you can jump over to some of the foliage to get to the symbol.
    
    |   |
    |---|--- This partial hash symbol in the crumbled passage is number 7
    |   |
    `---'---
    
    Staying up off the ground you can make your way across to a ledge, past the
    blue dial, and in to the next chamber. The room has a non-working dispenser in
    the floor with grass around it, and and the symbol and number are not there.
    In one corner is a jump-potion dispenser, but that doesn't help you to get
    quite high enough to make it up to an exit in the ceiling.
    
    A corner though has crumbled away revealing another dispenser with a jump
    potion labelled as "_" an underscore. Above a light in the wall there is a
    cracked area along the ceiling that you might be able to get to, but even with
    the jump potion you can't quite jump high enough. You can tell though that
    there is another code room in there.
    
    We'll have to head back for now. Use the lava to return back to the blue dial,
    out of that room back to the passageway to the stairs, and drop in to the
    void, which returns you to just outside the parkour pillars room.
    
    Flip the recessed switch to grant access to the parkour pillars again, and go
    in to the world flip chamber.
    
    19. Upside-down Parkour Pillars
    ===============================
    
    When you leave the chamber the parkour pillars are now upside down on your
    right, and you now have access areas with the symbol and the number. The
    symbol in this room a small square.
    
    .---.
    |   | This small square symbol above the parkour pillars is number 1
    `---'
    
    The other side of the chamber room shows that the small square is the number
    1. We now have four numbers for the green code room, 5168_.
    
    20. Upside-down Chest
    =====================
    
    The area with number 1 also contains a dispenser that has 5 papers, with R, H,
    J, Y, and U in a X-shaped pattern.
    
    R H
     J
    Y U
    
    You cannot take those papers out of the dropper though. Any attempt to results
    in the dropper being reset back to that configuration.
    
    Above you though is an upside-down chest and a lever. The lever opens a door
    to the chest which will be useful when things are right-way up again, and
    looking in the chest results in papers with those same letter dropping out.
    
    Now that the pillars room is upside down, there is also a passage way leading
    out, but when you get further down the passage your items disappear. We can
    collect those papers from the chest when we go back to the room.
    
    21. The Sapling Chamber
    =======================
    
    The end of the corridor has with a map button and the number 2. Inside the
    chamber is a sapling dispenser, some dirt blocks around it, and at the end of
    the chamber a symbol that looks like an upside-down A.
    
    .   .
    |   |
    |---| This upside down A in the sapling chamber is number 2
    |   |
    `---'
    
    We now know all of the numbers for the green code symbols, 51682.
    
    When you take a sapling from the dispenser it can only be placed on one of the
    dirt areas. Any attempt to place a second sapling results in all of the
    saplings being removed. Only one sapling is allowed.
    
    This sapling chamber is the same one that we came to at the end of the
    crumbled passage. If we plant a sapling in the right place, it can help us in
    the time travel area to get up to the ceiling exit.
    
    We will hold off though on returning back to the time travel area until after
    we have more symbols.
    
    Plant a sapling on the right dirt block from the entrance, and return back to
    upside-down parkour pillars.
    
    22. Papers Please Challenge
    ===========================
    
    Head back to the pillars room and get the papers from the upside-down chest,
    make sure that the lever has opened the door, and then in to the lava exit
    back to a right-way up world again.
    
    Take those papers back in to the pillars room, up the stairs along the back
    wall, and to the entrance that the lever you used before opened up.
    
    You aren't allowed to take any papers from this chest, so it's good that you
    have the papers that fell out of it from when the room was upside down.
    
    Put the papers that you have on you in to the dispenser above you, in the same
    pattern that they were in before.
    
    R H
     J
    Y U
    
    An entrance now opens up to a room with an upside down R symbol, and a sign
    saying it's the number 4.
    
    .     .
    |    .
    |---.   This upside down R from the papers please chamber is number 4
    |   |
    `---'
    
    We've done about all that we can usefully do here for now, so use the lava to
    get back to the above the block puzzle room.
    
    23. Red Dial Selector
    =====================
    
    Go back down to the red dial selector and set it in its correct position, at
    the lower left.
    
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    ------+------+------
          | Red  |
          |      |
          | Dial |
    ------+------+------
     oooo |      |
     o  o |      |
     oooo |      |
    
    Now is a good time to head through the colours room to the frozen fountain
    challenge.
    
    24. Frozen Fountain Challenge
    =============================
    
    Beyond the colours room is a frozen fountain, with 8 turned off lights in a
    row on the far wall. There are some differences that can be spotted between
    the reflection in the lake and what you actually see. You can punch at those
    differences to fix things back up.
    
    Left of the row of lights the reflection shows a lit lamp on the wall. Punch
    the empty spot on the wall and the light appears, and the row of lights now
    has a light lit too.
    
    Across the room from light that you punched, there is another light that the
    reflection shows, so punch that area on the wall to reveal it.
    
    Turning to look at the row of lights, the reflection shows that a light on the
    row is missing from up above. Punch that blank spot to reveal it.
    
    Just right of the entrance to the colours room, is a decorative area that's
    missing two lower steps we can see in the reflection. Punch those areas to
    bring them back.
    
    Just to the right of that is another decorative area, that is missing a
    central decoration. Punch that to bring it back.
    
    Left of the colours room entrance is another decorative spot that's missing
    too, so punch that to reveal it.
    
    The wall of lights now shows that only two more are needed, and these are on
    the central statues.
    
    On the statue closest to the colours room, there's a half slab that needs to
    instead be an upside down stair. Punch at the area on the column where the
    stair should be, and it reveals itself.
    
    The last statue by the row of lights can be trickiest one to do. Look at the
    reflection and you'll see that one of the stairs on top of the statue doesn't
    match. Stand up on the statue and punch the centre column where the stair
    should be, and that last piece is now fixed.
    
    Something has now changed about the room, but what?
    
    25. Green Dial Selector
    =======================
    
    Examine the reflection of the row of lights, and you'll see that it now has an
    entrance. Go up to the row of lights where that entrance should be, and you'll
    pass on through to the green dial selector.
    
    Set the green dial to it's correct position, set to the left.
    
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    ------+------+------
     oooo | Green|
     o  o |      |
     oooo | Dial |
    ------+------+------
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    
    26. Yellow Code Room
    ====================
    
    Take a sheet above you from the paper dispenser, and head on through to the
    yellow code room.
    
    In the yellow code room you'll find the following code:
    
        .       .     .                       .   .
        |       |    .                        |   |
    .---+---    |---.     .---.     .   .     |---+---
    |   |       |   |     |   |     |   |     |   |
    `   '       `---'     `---'     `---'     `---'---
    
    We have all the symbols that we need to solve the yellow code room. We know
    that it is 64157.
    
    Use the anvil to put the code 64157 on the paper, and then put that paper in
    the hopper.
    
    An achievement now shows itself on the right side of the screen for the yellow
    code, with a 1 beside it to indicate that there's still something we need to
    do, which is to get the green wool from the Escher cube.
    
    27. Yellow Dial Selector
    ========================
    
    Head back out through the frozen fountains and use the colours room lava to
    get to the lower starting chamber.
    
    Jump straight up to the yellow dial selector and set it to be in it's correct
    position, at the top right.
    
          |      | oooo
          |      | o  o
          |      | oooo
    ------+------+------
          |Yellow|
          |      |
          | Dial |
    ------+------+------
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    
    We can now explore further up here, because we have everything that we need
    for this area.
    
    28. Red Code Room
    =================
    
    The red code room is accessed from above the starting alcove. If you walk
    clockwise around the passageways up there, you will eventually come to a
    narrowed ending of the hallway that's too small to fit through.
    
    29. Multiplayer Colours
    ======================
    
    Come back to the lava and reach into it lava for the shears. When you take
    them a rapidly changing strange character appears in your message area.
    
    Press T for your message history, and hovering on the strange character you'll
    find a tool-tip that says:
    
    e__ __l____a___ _o____
    
    Carry on around clockwise to the next room, and you'll find a ladder to the
    left that goes up to the dispenser and a view of the Escher cube room.
    
    Carry on moving around clockwise to different rooms. One has a pressure pad in
    the corner which gives another strange character with a different tool tip:
    
    _s_ ___t____y__ __l___
    
    When you find two more of these codes, they will spell out a message.
    
    Go clockwise for two more rooms and there is a hole in the ceiling that you
    can jump through. Jump up there and press one of the buttons you find there,
    which gives a character with the following tool tip:
    
    __c ____i____e_ ___o__
    
    Carry on moving clockwise to the next room and there's a paper dispenser in
    the ceiling that you need later on. The next room clockwise has a gap in the
    wall with another button, which gives another strange character with this tool
    tip:
    
    ___ m____p____r ____r_
    
    Carry on around clockwise for two more rooms, and there in the ceiling is an
    upside down pressure pad that you can jump against, for one last strange
    character with a tool tip of:
    
    ___ _u____l____ c____s
    
    Put them all together and you have a message that says:
    
    esc multiplayer colours
    
    Minecraft has a default setting where multiplayer colours are turned on by
    default, so this message is telling you to turn that setting off.
    
    In your game options, go to Multiplayer Settings and change the Colours
    setting to Off. This will let you solve the next puzzle.
    
    30. A New Code
    ==============
    
    Head anticlockwise back around to the lava where you got the shears. Getting
    shears again results in a number this time. The number 9. The other places
    that triggered strange characters last time will also provide numbers now.
    
    Go around the rooms clockwise again to the pressure pad for the number 3, the
    jump buttons, for the number 6, gap in the wall button for the number 2, and
    the ceiling pressure pad for the number 3. Put these all together and you have
    the code 93623, which will grant you access to a shrinking potion.
    
    Now that you have the code, you won't need Multiplayer Colours to be turned
    off any more, so you can set it back to the default setting of On for the rest
    of the map.
    
    Head back to the paper dispenser in the room between the gap in the wall and
    the jump buttons, and take a sheet from it to the anvil. Use the anvil to put
    code 93623 on the paper, and put the paper in the hopper.
    
    31. Shrinking Potion
    ====================
    
    When you look back in the hopper there will be a blue potion, with a strange
    name that shows two white squares with an arrow between them. Currently the
    potion has no effect, but when you are closer to the narrowed end of the
    passageway, it will change so that you can then use it.
    
    Head clockwise around the rooms and take a sheet from the paper dispenser,
    then keep on going until you are near the narrowed end. The blue potion
    changes to a lavender potion with a large white square and arrow leading to a
    small white square. This is a shrinking potion that will let you get through
    the narrowed end of the hallway. Drink the shrinking potion and you can get
    through to the red code room.
    
    32. Red Code Room
    =================
    The red code room has five symbols on the wall.
    
    .   .    ---.      .   .   .   .
    |   |       |      |   |   |   |
    |---|    ---+---   |---|   |---+---   |   |
    |   |       |      |   |   |   |      |   |
    `---'    ---'      `---'   `---'---   `---'
    
    We have all the symbols we need to solve this code, which is 29275.
    
    Use the sheet of paper on the anvil, give the paper a code of 29275, and put
    it in the hopper.
    
    Because you are shrunk down in size, it may be tricky to get the paper in the
    hopper. Aim the paper high up in the air and use your drop button, to toss the
    paper to the hopper.
    
    Head back anti-clockwise to the lava, but don't use it yet.
    
    33. Shears for Escher
    =====================
    
    The shears in the dispenser will also be useful for the Escher cube, so get at
    least 3 shears from the shears dispenser beneath the lava. Go to the top of
    the ladder where you can see the cube room and put all the the shears into the
    dispenser. You'll then be able to pick them up when you are on the cube side.
    
    34. Green Code Room
    ===================
    
    Take the lava back to the lower chamber and through the block puzzle room to
    the corridor with the paper dispenser. We know the green code is 51682 so take
    a sheet to the green code room, and use the anvil to put the code 51682 on the
    paper and in to the hopper.
    
    We now have three achievements, and this is a good time to head in to the
    Escher cube.
    
    35. Red Wool
    ============
    
    Head on back through the corridor to the force field puzzle room, down the
    hole in the middle, and follow the path in the direction of the symbol.
    
    When you enter the cube room, there is a notched-out area in the path towards
    the cube. Step down there and you'll find that you can drop to a passageway
    below, with access to the blue underside of the cube.
    
    Following the path back to the wall, there's the ladder and dispenser that you
    were on the other side of earlier, and the dispenser contains the items that
    you put in there. Take out the items and carry on down the pathway, avoid the
    lava, and you'll be back at the entrance.
    
    Now you can drop one of your items on to the pressure plate. You can now carry
    on through to the other pressure plate where you can drop something else on
    it, and have a pathway back. Come back to the first pressure plate and pick up
    the item that you left on there.
    
    Now you can take the path at that first pressure plate towards the red side of
    the cube, and use the shears to take your reward of the red wool. Some nice
    fireworks occur to celebrate your achievement.
    
    The red achievement on the right side of your screen now changes from a 1 to a
    0, showing that you have finished the red part of the challenge.
    
    If you attempt to carry on past the red side of the cube you'll find the way
    blocked by a two-block high section, but above it is a pressure pad and some
    blocks that will become useful.
    
    36. Cross-shaped Symbol
    =======================
    
    So instead, follow the path away from the red side, and there you will find
    the last symbol, a cross for the number 3.
    
        | 
     ---+--- This cross-shaped symbol across from the red wool is number 3
        |
    
    The cross-shaped symbol lets us solve the blue and the orange codes when we
    find their rooms.
    
    37. Green Wool
    ==============
    
    Now head away from the red side through to the cross-shaped symbol and around
    the path, and activate the pressure plate. This causes some blocks to drop.
    That's a block that will help us to go left from the red side of the cube and
    get past the two-high wall, so leave an item on the pressure plate and head
    back to the red side of the cube.
    
    Because you left an item on the pressure plate, you can now head left from the
    red side of the cube around to the green side, and use the shears on the green
    wool.
    
    You can now use the shears to remove the green wool for another celebratory
    explosion.
    
    38. Yellow Wool
    ===============
    
    Carry on down past the green side of the cube, and you will end up at a path
    that goes to the yellow side of the cube. The first exit won't be quite close
    enough, but the next exit along the path comes in upside down to the yellow
    side, where you can get close enough to use the sheers on the yellow wool.
    
    The last three colour code room will be easy to deal with from here, but
    before leaving the code room make sure to to put your shears away below the
    entrance, in the dispenser. Then take the passage to the lava and we're ready
    for the last lot to occur.
    
    39. Collapsed Code Room
    =======================
    
    Take the passage in the direction of the number 5 sign back to the block
    puzzle room, and up to the red code solution room. You'll see that it now
    shows a light, indicating that it has been set correctly.
    
    Head down through the different setting rooms to the orange room, checking on
    your way that you have the correct setting for all of the others. As a
    reminder, the pathway through these rooms is left right left left right.
    
    They should all be correct, all that is except for the orange dial. We'll come
    back to that when we return. Now head right to go down to the parkour pillars
    and we'll advance time again to finish off this area.
    
    Flip the recessed switch, go in to the flip the world, grab a potion, return
    back to the lava, then out the corridor to the 2-high wall and use the jump-
    boost potion to get over. Use the time travel chamber to go forward in time,
    and back down the passage to the crumbled wall,and through to blue dial room
    and parkour across to the chamber beyond it.
    
    There you will find that the sapling has grown in to a tree, and we can use
    the potion dispenser in the crumbled corner to jump up to its leaves.
    
    This gets you up to a colour code chamber, but it's seen better days. When you
    enter the floor under you crumbles away.
    
    40. Blue Code Room
    ==================
    
    Climb up the vines to the broken corner, where you will find some lava and a
    sheet dispenser. Get a sheet from the paper dispenser and head down in to the
    water.
    
    Underneath the water you will find an entrance to the blue code room.
    
    The blue code room has the following code:
    
    .     .    ---.       .---.       .   .
    |    .        |       |   |       |   |          |
    |---'      ---+---    |---+---    |---+---    ---+---
    |   |         |       |   |       |   |          |
    `---'      ---'       `---'       `---'---
    
    The code for the blue room is 49873, so use the anvil to put it on the paper
    and give it to the hopper.
    
    Head back up to the lava, in to the sapling chamber lava, our of the collapsed
    corridor in to the void, then flip the recessed switch so that you can take
    the parkour pillar lava out of there.
    
    41. Coloured Beam Challenge
    ==========================
    
    The orange code room is the last one to do, which is up at the coloured beam
    challenge.
    
    Use the corridor between the block puzzle room and the colours room, to gain a
    potion effect then run back to the block puzzle room and leap up the hole in
    the corner of the ceiling.
    
    The ceiling hole has two exits, a lower one to where you can set up the
    solution to a puzzle, and an upper one to the orange code room and when the
    puzzle is solved to the orange dial.
    
    Go up through the lower ceiling hole, and in the puzzle room you have to chart
    an appropriate path from one end of the room to the other.
    
    There are several beams in the room, and a switch determines where that beam
    is placed. The ceiling has a guide to help you out, and you are to ensure that
    you can get from one end of the room to the other using all differently
    coloured beams.
    
    From the entrance, that would be green, yellow, purple, then red. The green
    and red purple are already correctly placed. The switch for the yellow beam is
    beside the entrance, and the switch for the purple beam is where the two
    purple beams intersect.
    
    After checking that you have a continuous path from one end to the other, head
    down to get another jump potion and jump up to the higher exit.
    
    42. Orange Dial Selector
    ========================
    
    At the orange dial you will find a paper dispenser which can be used later on.
    Set the orange dial indicator to its correct position at the bottom left.
    
          |      |
          |      |
          |      |
    ------+------+------
          |Orange|
          |      |
          | Dial |
    ------+------+------
     oooo |      |
     o  o |      |
     oooo |      |
    
    Now that the last coloured dial has been set, access to the purple code room
    will become available for you.
    
    43. Orange Code Room
    ====================
    
    Take a sheet of paper from the orange dial paper dispenser, and head across to
    the orange code room to see that the code there is:
    
       .       .     .   .   .        ---.         ---.
       |       |    .    |   |           |            |
    ---+---    |---.     |---.---     ---+---      ---+---
       |       |   |     |   |           |            |
       '       `---'     `---'---     ---'         ---'
    
    The orange code is 34799 so put that on the paper and give it to the hopper.
    
    Press the map button to find out where the orange dial and code rooms are, and
    you'll see that there is only one place on the map that we haven't visited. We
    weren't able to visit it until all six of the colour dials were correct.
    
    Head back down to the large red dial room and we'll make our way to the purple
    code room.
    
    44. Purple Code Room
    ====================
    
    Go back above the red dial chamber to the colour dial settings area, and work
    your way down to the orange setting room, which is left, right, left, left,
    right. The wall in the orange dial setting room has broken away to reveal a
    paper dispenser and the purple code room.
    
    The purple code room has the following code:
    
    .   .    .     .    .---.        .     .    .   .
    |   |    |    .     |   |        |    .     |   |
    |---|    |---|      |---|---     |---|      |---|
    |   |    |   |      |   |        |   |      |   |
    `---'    `---'      `---'        `---'      `---'
    
    The code for the purple code room is 24842. Enter the code that we now know
    for the purple code room, and every single code room has been solved.
    
    We only need now to collect the last of the coloured wool from the Escher
    cube.
    
    45. Blue Wool
    =============
    
    From the orange dial solution room, take the wrong path, that beingmarked with
    the symbol, so that you end up by the block puzzle room. Head through to the
    force field room, drop down and then in the direction of the symbol to the
    cube room.
    
    Go down and take some shears  from the dispenser and we can now remove the
    last of the wool from the centre of the cube.
    
    Since you are at the dispenser, you have easy access to the blue underside of
    the cube.
    
    Follow the path back and around to the orange side, and do you see the
    corkscrew path aimed at the orange side? Well head back out away from the
    orange side of the cube out the way you came, and and you are now on that
    corkscrew path. Go down the spiral staircase and use the shears to take the
    orange wool.
    
    46. Purple Wool
    ===============
    
    Take the path back to the orange entrance, and around to the red side corridor
    where the cross-shaped symbol is found. Carry on past the pressure pad to
    where you the path goes under the cube to access the purple side underside of
    the cube. There's a path blocking your way to the purple side though.
    
    Turning right you can make your way through to where the green side is up, and
    travel along the top. Near the end of the path you'll find a switch which
    removes a section of the path. This is the section that you need to remove to
    get to the purple side, but it also prevents you from getting back. Put the
    switch back to restore the path, and you now know about the switch that you
    need to find.
    
    Head back to where the purple side is underneath, and by the blocked path is
    an inset part of the path that lets you drop down below. When you follow the
    path through though it ends at a dead end.
    
    Head back out and the room has turned upside down, giving you access to the
    switch that you need to flip. Go back in to the dead end and when you reach
    the end of it, the room once again turns right-side up.
    
    You can jump back up to the path that you came down from, and access the
    purple underside of the cube. Use the sheers to remove the purple wool from
    underneath the cube, and that is the end.
    
    47. The End
    ===========
    
    Enjoy the final explosive moments, and make your way to the exit for a view of
    the workings behind the map, and a return back to the beginning.
    
    48. Dial locations
