Player Objective: Flip the switches so the spheres on the pillars near them match the color of the switches.
But there are rules at play here.
Red Switch: Vertical Swap (if switch 1 or 3) or Horizontal Swap (if switch 2 or 4)
Yellow Switch: Diagonal Swap
Green Switch: Move the colors CW
Blue Switch: Move the colors CCW
(and yes you can and only can flip each switch once, which means you have to solve it in four moves no less no more XD)

Now that I've laid out this nasty puzzle i need to figure how to set up the events. but i have no clue how to even approach this.

Is there a way to reset the puzzle?

What are the map coordinates of each of the spheres?

leave the map and come back its a small room.
would changing the direction of the sphere be the best approach

red is down (2)
yellow is left (4)
green is right (6)
blue is up (8)

so how would i do those operations if they're postions like above?

No, your first idea is okay. I just needed to know the coordinates and how you would reset

What are the x and y coordinates, and the event id (EV00?) of each sphere?

I think this would require four different variables, and four event pages for each sphere. Each switch would be able to add/subtract numbers from the variables. Each sphere would then go off ONE of these variables. Just make the levers (On map) that affect the spheres you want affect the right variables

Now, you also should probably set up another event that checks for the variables in conditinal branches. It would probably have to be parralel process, and to prevent lag, make a condition in the event so it's not there when the puzzle isn't active. In each of the levers, make a switch (event page) where if Switch X is off, it turns on. Then just do conditinal branches in conditinal branches to check for completion

If you want a reset mechanism. Make each lever turn on a switch as well. Then, you can make either the stairs, or something the player can interact with turn the switches off and reset the variables

@Shaz
ID: 4, Pos: 48,27 'blue'
ID: 5, Pos: 53, 27 'green'
ID: 6, Pos: 48: 32 'red'
ID: 7, Pos: 53, 32 'yellow'

you cant reset the puzzle less you leave the room. (less you solve it, then it wont reset no matter what)

edit: figured out how to do the first 2 switches. (second switch is swapping both x and y as its basically a 180 degree rotation
Code:
``````◆If：Script：\$gameMap.event(10).direction() === 6
◆Play SE：Buzzer2 (90, 100, 0)
◆
：End
◆Play SE：Switch3 (90, 100, 0)
◆Set Movement Route：This Event (Wait)
：                  ：◇Direction Fix OFF
：                  ：◇Turn Left
：                  ：◇Wait：3 frames
：                  ：◇Turn Right
：                  ：◇Wait：3 frames
：                  ：◇Direction Fix ON
◆Control Variables：#0006 Puzzle State += 1
◆Comment：Swap X
◆If：Script：\$gameMap.event(4).x===48
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(4).teleportToPoint(53, \$gameMap.event(4).y)
◆
：Else
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(4).teleportToPoint(48, \$gameMap.event(4).y)
◆
：End
◆If：Script：\$gameMap.event(5).x===48
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(5).teleportToPoint(53, \$gameMap.event(5).y)
◆
：Else
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(5).teleportToPoint(48, \$gameMap.event(5).y)
◆
：End
◆If：Script：\$gameMap.event(6).x===48
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(6).teleportToPoint(53, \$gameMap.event(6).y)
◆
：Else
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(6).teleportToPoint(48, \$gameMap.event(6).y)
◆
：End
◆If：Script：\$gameMap.event(7).x===48
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(7).teleportToPoint(53, \$gameMap.event(7).y)
◆
：Else
◆Script：\$gameMap.event(7).teleportToPoint(48, \$gameMap.event(7).y)
◆
：End``````
not sure how to do the rotation though
