Size Small
Difficulty Easy
Day/Night Cycle 1 Minute 55 seconds

Desolo is a Terran Moon Planet in Astroneer and is the moon of Sylva, to which it is tidally-locked (faces it with the same side at all times). It has no atmosphere, and is pockmarked with bare rocks scattered around the surface. The surface has many craters spaced out across it, which are often full of plants and a good source of Organic. With its primary resource being Wolframite and its proximity to Sylva, Desolo should be the second stop on the player's adventure - it introduces the Medium Generators for power management and the Chemistry Lab for production of basic composite materials, which allow of more sophisticated storage and rover recipes. Players will also find many Research Items and Debris scattered along the surface that can have valuable materials.

Desolo has an extraordinarily short day/night cycle, with each cycle lasting about 1 minute and 55 seconds.

Gateway Network[edit | edit source]

AstroWiki Warning.svg Spoiler Warning: Information below contains information that may ruin your enjoyment of discovering the game's secrets for yourself. Proceed at your own risk.

Desolo has two Gateway Chambers, each requiring 8U/s of power for 30 seconds to be activated. At least one must be activated before the player can access the Gateway Engine in the core of the planet.

Once a Gateway Chamber has been activated, the Gateway Engine opens in the core. Placing a single Icon Zinc.png Zinc in one of the slots reveals the Geometric Triptych. Placing the Geometric Triptych in the slot on the opposite side (above you) will activate the engine, revealing the Odd Stone and allowing teleportation to the core as well as revealing the inactive node for the Gateway Portal if it has not yet been discovered.
