Did anyone tried to unlock the elevator in the last part of Level 10, to use it as a shorter route to the hospital at the start of mission 15?

What is the difference in time?

I tried figuring this out but have yet to understand what you are trying to get at here 🙁 I just don't see it!

M15 start you have 3 options, excluding taking a tram somewhere.

1)go upstairs, torch open panel, open door, go to and use elevator, end up in hospital

2)go upstairs, go RIGHT, go through door, use elevator(Kuhlman had to unlock), then
torch open door, end up in hospital. Opposite side of where option 1 delivers you.

3)go upstairs, go RIGHT, go through door, go through another door, use elevator, end
up in Seegson Synthetics!

Option 1(:52.64) is faster than option 2(:58.25) Timed from tram exit to each sides door
openings.

What am I missing?

No, I mean, end of mission 14: go to systech spire, take elevator to gemini, take elevator to hospital. There is an extra elevator, but the player ends closer to the ambulance for anesidora, and is capable of running, because there are no obstacles to corner the player, and the alien is less active outside of the main path, to allow the player to backtrack and collect all the missing items.

Maybe making some noise in systech spire forces the alien to spawn on a convenient place. He may run after the player, but he is not that faster, and some flamethrower/bomb may stop him enough to save time running.

Some time is lost hacking a door at mission 10, but a v1 hacking is faster than torching and opening a door.

Okay, from end of M14 I took Tram to Systech Spire, went up and took elevator to Gemini, now... the only elevators(2) that are usable both go to Project KG348. I saw 2 other doors but no where did it say they went to the hospital.

The only thing I can see in this regard is that vent that Kuhlman locks behind you in M5, If that was open you could take the ladder up, crawl in the vent, and when you drop take THAT elevator which puts you exactly where I think you are saying. Closer to the Ambulance Bay.

I guess I'm just missing this "door" that's to be hacked in M10? Sorry if I'm not getting this but damn, I thought I knew this game pretty well! Hehe That's why I'n puzzled

M10 is really 4 parts: Soloman's | Systech Spire | Gemini | KG348

The only door hack I can see is at the start of KG348, you can unlock two elevators! Is that it?

If so it's V2 hack btw, and neither go to the hospital. Standing in front facing them the one on the
left goes to the Systech Lobby and the one on the right goes back to Gemini's start.

Oh. Then I was wrong...

On my mind map I was sure that it was the elevator to the hospital...

Maybe it's a glitch, from hacking that? I never hack that, but the elevators are just "open" for no reason later on!

Yes, the elevator from KG-348 to Lorenz Lobby magically opens later on even if you don't hack it in M10. Even if the elevator went to the hospital, it wouldn't end mission 14 - the trigger for that is getting into the transit to the SciMed tower.

Good to see you back, imposible 🙂
