Where is Nesoi in Starfield? – Planet location, resources, and 100% survey list

Look to Olympus

Among the various activities set out before you in Starfield, one that should tickle the fancy of many space explorers is conducting a planet survey. Using your scanner, you can catalog the creatures and plants of many celestial bodies — where applicable. One such planet is Nesoi, a lovely Earth-like place with more than one reason to visit. If you’re looking for the location and resources of Nesoi in Starfield, along with steps on how to 100% its planet survey list, here’s your guide.

Nesoi location and planet resources in Starfield

Where is Nesoi in Starfield?

Nesoi can be found in the Olympus star system. It’s not too far from the starting point in the game, so reaching it early on isn’t difficult. It’s a level 10 system, which means you should be able to handle it at any point in your adventure. The planet’s idyllic, rolling green hills and deserts are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Read on to learn about the biomes and resources of Nesoi, along with help on how to reach 100% survey completion.

Nesoi is where you can find eight different animal varieties in Starfield. Beware of some of the hunting types; they have teeth and they’re not afraid to use them.

The final animal, the flocking saturnine grazer, is a bit tough to locate. In fact, you might have gotten up to 96% survey completion of Nesoi only to be left scratching your head wondering what you missed. To find the grazer, open up the planetary map and look for a biome the ends with (Coast). Once you touch down, look for the ocean and head that way. The grazer is underwater just off the coastline. Don’t get too close to scan it! There are microbes in the water and they will kill you if you wet your socks too long. You can safely scan the beast at quite a distance. The farthest the game let me do it is 70 meters.

Nesoi: Planetary Traits

Nesoi has two different planetary traits to uncover. The first is the Sentient Microbial Colony, which I found in the Savanna biome. The second is the Ecological Consortium, which was hidden in the Deciduous Forest. For the latter, be sure to hunt around for dung piles, as they may contain resources. And dung. Ew.

What else is there on Nesoi in Starfield?

You can also find your Dream Home on Nesoi, so long as you chose the respective trait for your Starfield character. It’s a massive base of operations, one you’ll need to fork out 500 credits a week to GalBank pay off the mortgage. It’s likely worth it since 500 credits is chump change in the long run, and its final cost of 125,000 credits isn’t so daunting once you’re far enough into the game. The beautiful views of the planet aren’t anything to huff about, either.
