Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

Glacio is a Tundra Planet in Astroneer.

Glacio is the farthest planet away from the sun, it has a windswept thin atmosphere and icy mountains. The surface of the planet is full of many research items and research samples that can be researched for anywhere between 100 and 500 bytes each, making it one of the best planets to gather bytes. Hematite can be found all over the surface and often near the shuttle, making it much easier to harvest without the need of an Oxygenator, and the presence of Argon (100 PPU) allows one-planet Steel production. Ammonium and Graphite can also be found naturally, scattered across the cold surface, but at a much lesser rate than Hematite. Examples of Debris found on the surface are most commonly broken or working medium wind turbines, lessening the need to bring generators. Titanite can be found in large clusters underground along with Popcoral, which can kill in one puff if the player stands too close while breaking it. Glacio has lots of other Hazards.

Driving rovers around Glacio is fairly easy as the terrain is mostly flat. A drill and a paver may be required to traverse between different 'steps'.

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.

Glacio has six Gateway Chambers, each requiring 26U/s of power for 30 seconds to be activated. Three Medium Generators on a Large Platform B is the easiest way to achieve this. 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 Diamond in one of the slots reveals the Geometric Triptych. Placing the Geometric Triptych in the slot on the opposite side 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.
