I've lurked on the forums anonymously for a while but decided it was time to create an account and add my thoughts in on the new Alpha 20 RWG.
I have seen for a long time that most people prefer to simply list how many traders there are on a map but with the new Tile Generation RWG System, that seems a bit redundant now as Traders are practically guaranteed to spawn in nearly every city and town and at a specific location, no more need to hunt them down IOW.
In that regard, I believe it may be time to change what we are listing for our map seeds when posted. I've been testing out many new RWG seeds and since I still have yet to find what I'm looking for, I wanted to reach out to the community and respectfully request that anyone who finds a map matching or closely resembling my criteria, please reply to this post with said seed and settings so that I can try it out and share it with my friends.
Here is a list of what I am looking for:
A minimum of one(1) of each tier 5 POI
Majority of tier 5 POI's located in one city or two nearby cities, which should be situated in either the Snow or Wasteland Biomes
Cities in Every Biome, so that players may choose to play anywhere and progress around the map as they choose
Map size either 8k OR 10k, in order to accommodate multiple players in PVE or PVP games
I hope that someone finds the seed combination necessary to bring this map to life. I've generated probably 60+ maps in the last few days, with no success yet. If anyone has been able to generate a map similar to what I'm looking for, please let me know so I can duplicate it on my game, I would greatly appreciate your effort and response.
And what settings are you using? if you are leaving the defaults for hills, mountains and towns, you are very unlikely to get that golden seed.
This is all within 1km of a single central point around 4 traders bordering Forest/Snow(central point is in Snow)
I will say from my playing around, yea, there's gonna be a whole LOT of really crappy seeds, a lot of mediocre ones, and a fairly small number of amazing ones based on anyone's subjective definition of amazing. If you are leaving the default settings you are hamstringing yourself since town/city placement is the very last thing done after hills, mountains, cracks, lakes, rivers, etc so city placement has to fit essentially within whatever's left over that's flat. And of course, leaving default town size makes this much worse.
Best base location just inside the snow biome border from Forest.
3 Large cities with a medium city and Small town between in a tight cluster split between Forest and Snow biome.
4 Traders within 1 km of the suggested base location with a 5th ~2.3 km to the North.
Loads of high value Quest-able POI's within 1km from suggested base location
It is however missing the Shotgun Messiah Factory anywhere on the map, however most of the other tier 5s existing multiple times and most of them are within 1km of the suggested base location
One more thing to NOTE, jacking up the plains and removing all the hills and mountains is not going to guarantee a great seed or even a halfway decent one for that matter
