How to solve mirror puzzle and open door?

Once you arrive at the island, go to the door. On the plateau above it, you’ll notice a ray of sunshine being reflected off of several mirrors. Go to where the ray ends, and you’ll see a mirror blocked by some boards. Destroy the boards, and the beam will be on its merry way. Follow it, and you’ll find a boarded-up window blocking it. Break the boards and let the light flow once more.

Follow the ray again, and you’ll end up across the road, in another ruined building. Move the shelf with the sheet to let the sun reach the mirror, then move the other two shelves as well – if you move the one with the mirror all the way to the door, it’ll reflect the beam into yet another building.

Once you get there, you’ll have to move the shelves so that the ray goes down through the hole in the floor and into the dark room. Follow it down there, and break the boards blocking the door. This will allow the ray of sunshine to reach the door, and you’ll finally be able to enter the cave and continue your quest for the truth, glory and justice.

    Your explanation is awesome and everything but there’s no real of light to follow. I see it in all the videos and then I’m here and nothing

      I am having the same issue. I have tried resetting the day, but never get the ray of light to show. Does it have to be a specific “time of day” for the sun to hit the mirrors?

    I’m on volcanic islands but can’t position the crates to open the door. One of the crates is in the wrong spot. Preventing me from completing the quest.

    I’m on Pasta island with the mirrors to position but I have never seen a beam of light in order to get started. I’ve tried both day and night time scenarios. No originating beam of light. Why ???????

    Same problem. Game is updated to latest version, it’s day in the game and have left and come back at different times and days. No beam of light for me…but I still smashed some boxes and moved stuff lol.

    If you don’t see the light then you need to progress in the story
