Part 11: The Chain
When you reach the train that’s blocking your way, make sure you go as far as you can to touch the train. Then, get up on top of the ship and raise your mast. Climb up to the top and then climb the ladder right above you.
At the top of the structure, you’ll find some fuel items that you can drop down to the ship for later.
From the left of the roof of the structure, you should be able to climb a slanting ladder. Climb it and head right onto the chain.
It’s very windy on the chain and if you keep heading right, you will be pushed to the left by the wind again. You’re going to have to be clever here.
First, identify that there are three stages of wind here. One is, of course, no wind. The second is light wind, which is when you’ll see thin white lines to represent the blowing wind. The third is strong wind, which is represented by thick white lines.
You can walk normally in no wind or light wind. Remember to grab one of the blue handles on the chain if the wind has picked up, otherwise you will be blown back by the strong wind. One the strong wind recedes to light wind, carry on to the right.
You will want to do this as soon as the wind shifts from ‘strong’ to ‘light’, because if you wait for no wind, you won’t have enough time to reach the next blue handle.
Use the handles and the right timing to cross the chain and get to the other structure.
