The Astrolabe Puzzle is perhaps one of the most confounding enigmas in all of Signalis, at least up to this point in the game. Its solution is seemingly nowhere to be found — it’s not written on a note or deciphered by using the radio as other safes are. However, its very construction is a hint at where to find its nebulous combination.
This quick Signalis guide will tell you where to find the Astrolabe Puzzle solution if you want to work it out for yourself, and it will also tell you the alignment answer if you’re simply ready to get what’s inside.
Where to Find the Astrolabe Puzzle Answer
It’s like you’ve already come across the Astrolabe Puzzle answer and didn’t know it. The solution can be found at the Star Map in the Briefing Room near the Paternoster Looping Lift on Level B8. You’ll reach this area soon after solving the Fuse Puzzle to activate the Lift.
Pay close attention to the planets and their alignments, and compare them to the symbols on the rotating discs of the safe in Adler’s Study.
How to Solve the Astrolabe Puzzle
When you interact with the Astrolabe Puzzle, you’ll notice four symbols aligned in the middle. The top symbol is on a stationary piece of the safe, while the three other symbols are on rotating discs. There is a button in the middle.
The top symbol represents Heimat/Leng on the Star Map. The goal is to align the other planets on the rotating discs as they are when Heimat/Leng is at the top-center of the Star Map.
- Rotfront is the outermost rotating ring, represented by the white sphere. It should be in the lower left corner.
- Kitezh and Vineta are the next ring inward, represented by the two vertical lines. They should be pointing to the upper left corner.
- Buyan is the innermost ring, represented by the hexagon. It should be pointing toward the lower right corner.
