Yes, this discovery of three pressure plates has been around a while, and there's been a few search parties on what they do (I was part of one). Nothing has been discovered AFAIK.

Re: Secrets Inside the Box

This post is kind of a list of what I've been doing since the comment by Wuzzy telling me about the Scores plate:

I've been thinking...what if there are pressure plates in the biome islands (other than the forest). There are pressure plates inside the other main islands, so maybe there's one in the tutorial "island" (since technically it's not an island, it's more like an area).

Unfortunately, when I checked the tutorial area (except where we teleport in from the tutorials, since that's unreachable without restarting them), I didn't find any pressure plates. Not even on the roof on of the hallways where there is a broken pile of blocks.

I haven't checked the biome islands yet, though. I probably will later.

When I was on the previously mentioned roof (where you can reach from the Play island's mini teleporter nearest to the Tutorial area), I realized that above me was an extremely broken box I didn't notice before. Its floor was intact, so I couldn't see inside, but its walls were practically destroyed, although what's left of them still hide the inside.
It seems to, like the unreachable cracked box, be connected to the area you teleport to after you complete the tutorial. Although, it connects through the ceiling, so I don't know how someone would get up there. I don't know whether this was old news or not, but I haven't noticed it before.

EDIT: Immediately after I posted this, I realized that maybe the whiteboard message change was a message from sofar, telling us that he's still working on it, or it's just a reminder that there IS an answer, we just need to keep searching.
END OF EDIT.

Anyway, although most of the things I've been doing were just random thoughts and questions about this whole thing, they might still be useful...maybe...

This “mystery” has a very simple explanation: The new terminal in the exit lobby was added because of a suggestion of mine. Since all terminals support telex now (commands to send messages to players even when they're offline), having a terminal in the exit makes it more convenient to send messages to the builder of the box you're just won. :)

It's possible that sofar will add a few text files later to explain a few things. Maybe.

I've already checked this quite thoroughly and there are no pressure plates on any of the four islands. Rumor is that each island contains a pedestal but all except one of the pedestals are concealed.

I've checked inside the exit area that you go to after completing the tutorial and there are definitely no pressure plates in there either.

I believe this is the area that you walk through after completing the tutorial, if I'm understanding your description correctly. It's been a while since I've had a look around that area but I only remember two broken boxes: the big unreachable one and the little one that's connected to the tutorial exit. The latter has some brown/bronze blocks on the side that look like a broken number.

This topic needs more screenshots.
(Btw. I've heard that much information was lost due to the forum backup thing.)
(I should have posted this here earlier, but have forgotten it.)

So far I've found 3 pressure plates. One of them is the one in scores.
Then there's this in create:

And there's a secret entrance to the play island (don't jump, walk):

which leads to a secret room with the 3rd plate (the button opens an exit):

Adjusting the near_plane setting, one can see that each of the four corner islands has a nexus:

And there's a nexus inside this happy little mountain / rock / whatever:

Maybe zoom and fast can help getting and looking into the other cracked box.

Please do not cheat/hack in order to find stuff that's supposed to be secret and/or discovered in a legitimate way.

That said, the pedestal inside the mountain/rock was already discovered through a legitimate and unintentional glitch and I had already suspected that there would be more on the other corner islands.

There is a secret room hidden in box 25. By taking a leap of faith one can be enlightened.

Hidden "eggs" in Box 431

by Wuzzy » Post

There are at least 3 hidden switches in box 431. If you flip one of them, a sign appears which says "you found a Egg! Well done!" [sic!].
+ Spoiler
I don't know if there are only 3 hidden "eggs" or if there are more.

EDIT: @Pudding: Are you sure it isn't just the "secret" room that is needed to solve the puzzle? Or is it something else? I don't know what to look for.

Box 586 accolades

You can earn several optional "accolades" in box 586. Eight accolades are known. They are shown as signs next to the furnace. Can you get them all?

The secret room hidden in box 25 isn't needed to solve the box but can be used for a faster solve time.

Go to meeting room. there are 4 chest.
The 4 chest are empty so someone already taked them.
also in each natural island there's a nexus pedestal. (4 islands)
but only one island has a nexus.
i think each chest had a nexus (1 in forest island,3 unknow(not in chest or pedestal) )
i tryied to reach the cracked box but it seems impossible to reach.

How did you find out that they are empty? Last time I checked, I wasn't able to bypass the metal bars.

Ah, thanks!
I've taken a look when I had read rob123's comment, and the bars were still there. I didn't expect another change happening so fast.

The Nexus Pedestal in the Forest has a Nexus on it now!!!! What is happening????

Edit: Let me think about this:
There are 4 chests, and 4 "biomes" (forest, plains, lake and ice). Maybe there is one nexus per island? But I have not found any other pedestals on those biomes. However, I know there is one more pedestal in the Create Island. But no nexus ...

I am still puzzled what the hidden pressure plates are for. Does anyone have found more of them, apart from the 3 we already know? (Create, Scores, Play)

I think I see a pattern in the pressure plate placements. It's each of the main non-biome islands. Maybe the last one is hidden somewhere in the Tutorial entrance/exit. Unfortunately, though, I can't join you guys in the search right now. I have school stuff to do. Please post pictures, and Good Luck!

There is a hidden path through the trees to get to the pedestal. Use the sign on pedestal as reference to where the entrance to the path is.
