    I am creating this thread so anyone can post their theories, hints, clues, etc. regarding Secret Mission 4: The Phoenix Facility.

    If anyone wishes to talk about Mission 4, they can do so at the following IRC channels on irc.blackwatchmen.com:
    • Part 1: #sm4.1
    • Part 2: #sm4.2
    I will try to keep this updated with relevant info as well.

    For "Valuable Substance"

    It would be really helpful if the common abbreviation for the chemical in question were accepted. You'll need to write out the whole thing.

    Thanks for the suggestion Typhoon Jim, the mission has been updated.

    More feedback, this time on Suspicious Facility:

    This answer should be more lenient as well. I actually found another more specific way to refer to this facility that would be even better than the answer (which is a copy/paste of descriptions of it)

    This "Suspicious Facility" has me stumped, what do we even have to go on? Just the Arrhenius equation notes and the year 1968?

    There are the following key words you can work with:
    • Arrhenius equation
    • 1968
    • Suspension process
    Now, there are multiple things that the arrhenius equation relates to. One of them is kind of a sci-fi concept. Became a pretty popular subject, honestly.

    Please tell me if i'm barking up the entierlly wrong tree here.
    Working on the suspicious facility and
    i'm looking for a cryogenic facility in Phoenix 1968?

    Edit: Found it now, seems like the one i tried over and over should have worked but didn't for some reason. I found Another name for it that worked though.

    Hit the nail on the head, there. You are on the right track.

    You are on the right path
    Formatting is a major pain in this one...remember to include "facility" in the answer

    forget suspension use suspended instead, 1968 and the Arrhenius equation

    That answer is just plain wrong, I researched that facility to death and find it called this in one single article on wikipedia!!

    Thanks @cronkllr

    There are listed answers which I had tried and did not get accepted. Does this one need checking?

    Khalm, are you saying there are answers for this mission that you tried and that weren't accepted, but were listed on the screen as other possible answers once you did get it correct? That would seem like a bug and should definitely be reported. If you're just saying the answer isn't intuitive or doesn't match the clues... I would disagree personally, it seemed stupid-obvious to me once I stopped overthinking it haha!

    It was right , but the hint
    Suspension instead of suspended
    will throw you for a loop if your searching. that should have pointed you in the right direction. ( I hope) :D

    My problem was I had entered a correct answer (correctly as I thought) and it had not accepted it. Got there in the end form the hint you gave, it led me to one of the alternative acceptable answers which worked. Have entered the original answer again and it is now accepted so, typo in my copy n paste?? who knows

    Make sure when you copy and paste that there is no empty space in from or the end of the answer. I found when I copied and pasted answers , I had a extra blank space in front or back I did not notice - So I went further down the rabbit hole when I was right.,

    Extra empty spaces are the worst thing to have in a mission answer. They screw you over big time.

    I also had trouble with this one until i found an alternate name for the facility. But when i did finish it the list of accepted answers had my first answer listed. This did add time to solve the mission, but it didn't break the game for me. My first answer btw had hyphon in it, maybe that was the problem seeing as words with hyphons are listed weirdly in the accepted solutions list.
