Desolo is probably the first celestial body you're going to visit once you've outgrown Sylva and built a small shuttle. When you're preparing to land try and pick a landing zone close to one of the gateways - they're fairly obvious as they've got a shaft of light coming out of them.

Once you've settled in on Desolo head over to the gateway, you need to activate it before you can enter the engine. To do this you need to connect up 8A of power to one or more of the sockets at the base of the gateway. Active medium solars give 2A or small organic generators give 1A. I've found that 8 small generators that cost 1 compound each and 8 lumps of organic made from "cutting the grass" is the simplest way of doing this.

Now it's time to journey to the centre of the planet to find the gateway engine. You can do this on foot or in a tractor. Either way you're probably going to need a drill to break through any hard rock between you and the planet core. Before you set off make sure you have a zinc nugget on you.

Eventually you'll find a dark purple substance covered in neon pink lines. This is one of the arms of the gateway engine. The gravity around the arm gets a bit wierd so "jump on" and follow the arm to the engine. Insert the zinc into one of the sockets and you'll generate a geometric triptych. Run around the room to get to the ceiling (I told you gravity is a bit screwy at the planet core) and insert the triptych in this socket to generate an "Odd Stone" that will take you back to the surface.

You will need to come back here with a second lump of zinc to make another Geometric Triptych to finish the game.
