The platform may be summoned from the top of the Sunspire Tower by activating a crystal in a dedicated chamber, that sends a solid blue beam of lighting for a short duration towards the sky.
Prisoner 849 used the platform to reach the Nali sky town suspended above the cloud layer of the planet. Some time later two survivors of UMS Prometheus crash - R. Ovrevik and J. Montanus - unsuccessfully attempted to ride the platform in order to reach the town. Due to the stormy weather they never reached their destination having crashed a few hundred meters from the Sunspire tower in the Spire Valley. Both their bodies and the platform may be found half-buried at the bottom of the lake.
