Spoilers below






--------------------










I'm in the Stone Forest Age. I've done the Bathysphere and I'm at the door
to the workshop with the funny colored dot puzzle. I gather this revoles
around the swatch-thingy from Spire where the central dots have to match it,
as well as making each segment equal white.

My problem is I don't have enough colors. My swatch colors are (from top)
Blue, Yellow, Red, Blue, Red & Green. Which means five segments are primary
colors (RBG) and one segment is secondary (Yellow, cyan & magenta), which
will not work. I have tried assuming my blue is actually cyan with no luck
and subsituting megenta for red.

It seems something is a miss. Any ideas?

You're not ready for that puzzle yet. You need to finish the "spirit
guide" puzzle first then it will give you more clues to finish this one.

If you mean the colored swirly clouds puzzle, I have already done it. Is
there something else?

No, the clue you got after solving the dream world, combined with Sirrus's
colour circle is all you need to open the door. You can use the necklace at
the door to review the dream world clue iirc.

One other thing I have noticed. When I first played Spire, I didn't notice
the swatch first time round and only spotted it after I played Haven. It was
when I went back I saw it and took a picture of it.

If I go back to a game save where I activate the "final lift", I notice the
swatch has a different color pattern - one with three RBG patterns and three
YCM ones, which would work at the workshop lock.

As the pattern I have seems to be irrational (i'm still working on any
possibilites) have I stumbled across a bug?

I don't really want to have to go back to Spire and have to replay Haven
from scratch.
