Shipping and Receiving

Q: What's the telescope's use?
A: The telescope in the captains quarters, combined with the steering wheel, opens the box. The wheel opens the box if and only if the telescope is aimed downward. (Thanks, Grundbegriff) :)

Q: How can I open the musicians' safe?
A: Unpatched game only - The safe in the musicians garage/room is supposed to be pickable, although with a tough lock. Change the lockpicks twice.

Q: How can I enter the locked area in the musicians' room?
A: Patched game v. 1.18 only - The door is locked with an evil mechanist locking device. Open it with the metal gear that you find in the same room.

Q: How do I open the Steak Dealers safe?
A: With the blue key you find in the cooling room, after you've pushed the button. Search the floor in the cooling room well, because the blue key melts perfectly with the colour of the floor. It's in the northern part of the room.

Q: There is a box with one of those mechanical things inside. Am I supposed to do something with it?
A: No, it's just a prop to give you an idea of what you've to expect in the later missions.

Q: I can't seem to get into the locked doors in Shipping and Receiving, it just says maybe someone will open them.
A: The locks of the orange and the red doors are on the inside. You need to find a different way in.
