I've been shuffling platforms around for a while and not getting anywhere. Evidently I need to leave at least one trapdoor in place too, but I haven't even thought about that because the platforms are giving me trouble.

Can I get some advice on how to do this?

Here's a few tactical tips for getting the platforms past each other:

- Both the northeast corner and the southwest corner are good places to temporarily stash platforms while you get other ones past bottlenecks. In particular, note that in the southwest corner, you can move horizontally through the North-facing force arrow.

- I put two platforms on the East side first, leaving me with only three to shuffle around for the middle and West which was a little more manageable.

Hopefully this puts you on the right track (and gives you a hint as to which of the trapdoors is actually necessary). Let me know if you want more specific advice, a screenshot of the final setup, or a demo.

You should really figure out the exact end state before making a single move in this room. Otherwise there's a big chance you'll end up doing a lot of shuffling only to notice that the setup you're going for doesn't work.

With that out of the way, here's a few tips for the shuffling
