They really need to stop with the "overly" interactive "chat functions" in puzzles like this.
Could have easily finished this days ago if it was as simple as "hit" the tower to interact with it or only needing to press R once to interact.
Having to enter "R" 5-6 times for each tower is just lunacy.
Requiring us to pan through a number of chat functions for each single interaction reduces the amount of time players have to complete puzzles such as this which is detrimental to any player that might have latency or framerate issues.
I am not the only person having issues with this either.
Been at this one puzzle for two real life days now.
