Before I begin, I may come across as overly negative. This isn't my intent at all.
Second I'm playing this one other person who has come to the same or similar conclusions as me.
Lastly this hasn't ruined our overall enjoyment of the game. In fact I wish 7th Continent to get a reboot and use the character system for individual characters from the 7th Citadel. 7th Continent, a game about exploration forced players to stay together (it was punishing seperating) wasn't a good, nor fun idea. Well, 7th Continent has certainly made a great stepping stone to 7th Citadel.

A minor annoyance, one I raised in 7th Continent, and other board games not produced by you. Real world aspects should be left out of games unless the entire point is to include them as a main gimmick. We've dismissed the card
A0245 (level 3 fog card) as we weren't provided a timepeice to keep track of in game time of day.

Came across a random trap
card A0246 (level 3 fog card)
. There are several problems with it which brought the game to a halt as we tried to figure out not only what is was asking of us, but how to get to the solution.
First thing, this isn't even a puzzle. If I were physically there, or had a mock contraption of such to physically use I could easily provide the answer it seeks as I would see the result of the action as I complete it.
Second is the instructions on the card itself.
It doesn't state to rotate clockwise, nor counterclockwise, This is an important distinguishment to make since the number of crushed bulbs changes depending which direction is taken.

The 485 card that we drew was A1044 (card C).
The answer is questionable on card 442 (A1001). If the lever were rotated 3 times full rotations clockwise would result in 2. If the lever were rotated 3 times full rotations counterclockwise would result in 3.

Was the point of this puzzle to gamble on a direction? That's not a puzzle then... Should have just told us to draw a card based on the direction we chose rather than
waste our time counting
. having all the answers on one card wasn't wise either, as we now know the answers to all of them. We can't unsee the other results.

Now thinking about it, I don't even know if this is the right place to have posted this.
Regarding card A0246, it asks you to
find the maximum number you could smash, regardless of the direction of rotation
There is no mistake in the wording (if the direction was specified, the card would ask for an exact number). In your example, the answer
is therefore 3 (the larger of the two numbers)
