Once you have arranged the cards into a grid look from above. The space/shape around each of the buildings will create some numbers. Good luck! :-)

We can't find the numbers in the space around the buildings.
Maybe it help if we know the numbers to see it.

We were fine on time while doing the scenario and got stuck here as well. After a long time we saw it.

This is a BIG spoiler but I hope it helps.

If you still don't see it, read the red lines:

For the plane, it is similar except you have to arrange it in the color patterns displayed on the plane.

I could see it before my question here. But I don't look for a card number, but after a code for the app. Oh man...

What hindered us greatly were the instructions. Something about overlapping cards (and the brown/yellow cards DO overlap, with artwork like a post repeated on both cards). Plus those instructions about rotating things this way and that. My enjoyment of the game was greatly diminished by the final two puzzles.

This is a really illogical puzzle.

There is no way a person on the island would have access to the information needed to solve the puzzle. It would have been thematically justified if you had found a spy satellite control center on island... or just a map.

This and the game-box-that-does-not-exist-thematically in the Squeek and Sausage scenario really ruins the experience.

I tried to give you 20 thumbs up, but BGG only allows one. THIS has been our experience with those two scenarios, exactly. Great fun, clever puzzles, enjoyment, and then BAM! the game throws a bucket of cold water on your head.

It would have made a lot more sense if it had a number next to the plane, you fetch the card and it says: "The plane takes off and you fly over the island. As you look down, you notice something odd". In this way, players would know that there should be looking at the big picture from above and would have redeemed this puzzle for us.

This happened to be the most disappointing clue/puzzle in the two unlock games we have played so far. Even seeing the spoilers above with extra help added, it's really hard to get. Big thumbs down for me from the designers. They really make too big of leaps at times. The rest was really good.
