Astroneer - Vesania

Vesania is an exotic planet in Astroneer. The landscape feels like a 1960s vision of space with strange and unusual flora and fauna. The terrain is quite difficult to navigate with lots of steep rock edges and pits. Even with the large rover, you will have difficulty navigating this planet.

This planet is not great for capturing power from the sun. You will need to rely more on wind power, which is ideal as it will blow day and night. This makes the planet slightly easier and makes the threat from some of the aggressive plants less of a problem.

Best Way To Generate Power

Generating power is a unique challenge on every planet, particularly when you are dealing with the basic wind and sunlight capture methods. On Vasana, there is a lot of wind that will blow night and day.

Two medium batteries with a few wind turbines will be enough to satisfy your power needs for quite some time due to the wind being able to power the base and charge batteries in most cases.

Solar can be useful, but they do not work all that effectively due to the planet being quite dull with low levels of light.

Survival Tips

Vesania has quite a few plants that want to kill you. If you are not familiar with all of the types of plants in this game, you will likely get a few hits and maybe even get killed before you learn which are the plants that move and can attack.

The terrain poses a unique challenge here as you will not be able to rely on vehicles to travel around quickly to gather supplies. If you are able to construct a paver for your rover, it will reduce the effort required to get around as it will fill over the deep gaps and ridges on the surface for you to quickly get around.

Unlocking The Vesana Gateway Engine

There are some minor spoilers ahead. If you do not know what the gateway engine or chambers are and want it to remain a mystery until you come across it yourself, do not read any further.

The gateway engine for Vesana requires you to insert a single piece of graphene into the input slots at the base of the engine. Once the odd stone appears, you can place it into the slot on the roof in order to activate the engine.
