How To Activate a Gateway Chamber
What is Gateway Chamber?
Gateway Chambers are structures that can be found on the surface of every planet. They appear as large, scaffold-like structures with smooth, glassy surfaces through which can be seen a starry background that appears to be deeper than the inside of the structure would suggest.
How To Activate a Gateway Chamber
Gateway Chambers need to be powered up. This can be done with generators, as well as batteries. To power up a chamber with a generator, simply place the generator next to one of the platforms on the chamber and attach it with a cable plug. You can find three separate areas to plug in your generator.
