Interesting Map Seed Thread
Figured I'd start a thread for anyone to post some good seeds for free map play.
I'm looking for some with good looking areas with a couple of lakes etc

A good large map I found is:
USA
has a nice big lake, with useful river structures.

Cheers

GreatestSeed
for a Huge USA map is absolutely astonashing. It features an epic river system in the middle of the map with a thicker lakeish part. There is a ton of industry located by the river aswell as plenty of towns. The river branches of in several directions to the north and features a cool mountain range to the south west.

It is without a doubt the coolest seed I've found.

If you need a nice small, flat map to screw around on, try RoadEmpire.

2 lakes which connect by a river, multiple towns and lots of industry upon another connecting river. Nice seed to mess around with any transport type.

I want to figure out how seeds work cuz it's fn annoying I just re rolled 6 times cuz either farms are opposite end of the map than food producers or its crude to oil or would need a map long train track to start making goods..

The more I play this the more annoyed I get
- Ha, reroll #7; Kansas city forest, Kansas city forest #2, Kansas city forest #3, saw mills 2 years one way trip away..cuz it's a 1;2 large map. So there goes all the chains that require planks. Guess I could just transport food whole fkin game.. How fun

How hard is it to make a script that puts chains within a distance?? Short for early game, med/long for later years.

What settings so you use for the map? Tried it with Large, Flat, and it's pretty good, but doesn't seem to fit what you describe

Had it at large size, medium hills, 1:1 - like it for the double oil/refinery by 2 decent sized cities.

Awsum Seed! I love it!

'Colorado' is a nice seed- small, flat USA map pictured.

Large medium 1:1

Seed: WaterPlanet2

Several lakes with a large river network

Europe, 1:2, medium + flat, "LakeBodensee". One river that is dividing the map and two nice starting routes in the south and middle. Currently playing this on hard

I thought the seeds are specific to your computer and not universal? Youtuber Colonel Failure mentions this several times in his stream.

Nope, I just tried the 'Colorado' one posted with a pic above - same map, names and all. Works fine.

It needs the exact same settings - i.e. changing aspect ratio doesn't just result in a more elongated map, or changing hilliness doesn't just make the same terrain a bit more steep.

IIRC, in Train Fever, there was some discussion (or some instances) when the results also changed depending on your operating system - i.e. the Linux map generator got some different results from the Windows one.
But that should be the only thing to maybe (!) look out for.

Only things that affect map generation will cause a difference. Even mods won't change it unless that's what they are meant to do. And yes, Windows and Linux use different code to generate random numbers, so they will give different results given the same seed.

Make sure you list your map generation settings when posting a seed, otherwise people won't get the exact same map.

Good to know, thanks for the info(from you and others).

FWIW, one thing that I noticed is that, using the same seed, you can change from Europe to USA and the map will be identical with topology and town locations. Industries are completely different, as well as town names and specific town structure.
