Seed 72325224 Edit: This is the wrong seed than the picture, sadly.  Since I deleted the wrong save it will be lost forever. :(

(Made on a tiny world)

(http://i524.photobucket.com/albums/cc325/bew1977/seed72325224.png)

Nearly complete flat land with a little water off to the side for an emergency well.

There is a seed thread on this page, doesn't have many entries atm though.

Just a heads up, but ore and plants are generated differently than the terrain.  Using the same seed but with a different world size will probably end up with different trees and ore veins but the same hills and caverns.

No big deal.  The game is reasonably fast at generating tiny worlds so I actually enjoy generating random worlds to find one that I really like.  I feel in my mind it's rather like my roaming band of gnomes are travelling through the world in search of the place that would be the best place for them to start their new civilization.
Title: Re: Good Seeds?

I think that leaves a few gnomes stranded, as the upper corner is occupied and anything that embarked on that tile will be displaced upwards.  I think if your "empire start" was at [1,0] then it would shift you sideways and make it a legit embark?

I like mountainous maps because the generally have easy, safe resources in them.

Can't you just manufacture your flat pasture and farm areas fairly easily? I haven't tried it but I assume you can flatten off the top of a mountain or build a "balcony" pasture out of dirt flooring - keep your yaks safe from goblins, a hundred feet in the air.
Title: Re: Good Seeds?
Post by: Girlinhat on June 29, 2012, 05:31:12 AM
Terraforming isn't easy.  Yes, it's just gnomes digging, but the larger the outcropping the more time it takes, and the more scrap resource it generates.  For instance, I overkill using 15x15 farm plots.  If that were on a smooth incline, then the first row would be flat, though generate 1 dirt because of ramps.  The second row would be raised by one, and generate 3 dirt from the wall, floor, and ramp.  Third row generates 5 dirt, with wall, floor, wall, floor, and ramp.  Fourth is 7, fifth is 9, etc.  That ends up being 225 dirt generated, per column.  Being 15x15, it'd be more like 3,375 total dirt generated.  That's roughly 1,750 "ramp down" jobs and an additional 3,375 "stock item" jobs.  It may be less dirt if there's wood or plants on the hill, but then there's still other items to haul.

And then that's not to mention that 15 tiles into a mountain you're probably gonna hit rock, making it more difficult to use the whole space for farming.

Also, as shown in another thread, the "far lands" seem to be strange and often flat.  Use any kingdom seed, and set the "kingdom start" at 1000000-something.  Just add 0's until the text begins to scroll in the box.  You get some strange terrain, and it can include perfectly flat areas.
Title: Re: Good Seeds?
Post by: Blindsight on June 29, 2012, 08:02:29 PM
Tired of trying to get flat land?

Use any seed (confirmed with only a few) with the same starting positions. So, seed 1111111111, with a kingdom center of 1111111111, 1111111111 will get you something similar to this:

(http://olcontact.com/Gnome/1111111111.JPG)

A little glitchy due to how the area is tiled, but can save you from having to flatten land. Alternatively, you could likely position it to just take up one of the corners which would also likely be flat.
Title: Re: Good Seeds?
Post by: Girlinhat on June 29, 2012, 08:04:24 PM
Slight difference, but any seed where you start that far out will have chunked terrain.  It's rather convenient.

3921286147 Standard size

This is nothing special by any means, but this has been my go-to seed lately. It's a nice area with a very VERY close water supply that is easy to access through that little mountain, for anyone like me who likes to bunker down. It's also got a crazy amount of Lapiz for anyone who likes blue stone. Copper one level down, and I usually find a ton of it as well.

Similarily it has a nice little flat area to the left.

On the largest size map.

While it's not even remotely flat, it is an interesting looking map with many natural looking water features.

But the best is that my gnomes have been pulling sapphires and copper ore out from so many places.  I've not even bothered to dig down, I started in the base of the side of the mountain and moved up about 2 levels and haven't even bothered to dig down and have tons of sapphires and copper thus far.

Hopefully when I am feeling up to actually expanding downards I'll start finding even better stuff, but so far so good.

Fill the lower boxes with 1 until you can't press 1 in either of them.

It looks pretty decent. Too bad about the lack of water currently haha.

When rain is re-added, you can do 1x1 holes to collect water, and mechanical walls to control the flow once these fill up.
Title: Re: Good Seeds?
Post by: Don Pedro on July 03, 2012, 12:14:52 PM
on standard map fill all seed numbers with 3. also the starting location... you should get lots of flat squares with various height and access to water as well.

Totally flat, haven't explored it or anything so I have no idea about caverns ect.

Seed: 3146401995
Size: Tiny
Kingdom Center: 1000000000, 10000000000 (10 digits)

edit: I guess the lack of water kinda sucks. Is there any chance of finding any underground? I've only had this game for a day so not too sure on the mechanics.

edit: #2 I've been playing with the same seed # I posted above but with different kingdom centers to see if I could get some water. Kingdom Center 999999999 (9 digits), 10000000000 (10 digits) tiny size produces the most useable map I've managed to generate, but I have no idea about caverns ect. Its 2 levels high, each flat, with water on the very edge of the map.

I don't have a screenshot but try, "11111111" (8 digits) on large scale... There's a huge dirt mountain right in the middle with like another granite and marble mountain inside the main mountain and half exposed. There's also a half underground and half exposed river going through half the map and up under that big mountain.. Dig into the mountain at depth 0 toward the middle and you'll have a nice base for your fortress with lots of marble and granite.

I was just talking to a friend about world generation yesterday. What would be absolutely great, is if there was an actual customization to the world generation. Perhaps some check boxes, where you go down the line and select things such as terrain(Mountainous, hills, flat, valley, etc.), climate, the existence or lack of rivers/streams, and maybe even stone layers. If this is in the finished product, I know I'll be spending hours going through world generations looking for the perfect scenic map.

Post by: ezryder914 on July 17, 2012, 05:36:10 PM
I've noticed with the current build if I set the kingdom location to some huge number I get large square blocks of terrain.

i.e. 4545454, 4545454 for location (with any random seed) always gets me a checkerboard map of varying height blocks of varying materials.

It can be fun, except for the fact that merchants and gnomads spawn randomly around the edge of the map, so you will have to build stairs/ramps so they can get to your town/fort.  :)

Post by: MoreCowbell on July 26, 2012, 03:26:11 PM
I played around a bit with the "Kingdom Center (KC)" and depending on what numbers you place in either field can have a severe manipulations on how your map is generated. So for testing I used the same Seed of, "2292678214" on a large map.

First I just saw what the seed looked like on KC of 0,0..
Then I changed KC to have all 9s in both fields.. and WOW.. such a huge difference in how the map was generated. All the mountains were large squares with a similar appearance to what stacked pancakes would look like.
Then I changed KC to have 9s in the first field and 0 in the second.. and meh.. didn't like that at all..

Really I'm confused on what KC does to the maps creation.. if the entire seed is only as big as a "HUGE" map, then changing the "Kingdom Center" should be named differently unless I'm just not understanding what the true 'center' is..  Just with this test of this seed and seeing how different the map looks by either having 0s or 9s in both fields.. and with so many other combinations available (18 digits is a quintillion?).. Perhaps randomizing the seed should include randomizing the Kingdom Center?
Title: Re: Good Seeds?
Post by: Logikless on July 26, 2012, 08:53:00 PM
KC is the coordinates based off the seed you use.  Figure you got a seed with a mountain in the center of it. Change KC coords with that seed, and you will be next to the mountain or far away. It depends on what you enter, but it changes where you start. At high KC numbers the map's generation gets funny, so it is a bunch of blocks.

Pretty great spot: lots of copper and coal pretty high up, and you start at a nice defensible little hill.

I ended up doing a large map at 20,50 and since I always to the remove ramp function and build on 0 at first it works decently. have 3 seperate tree areas 1 for apples 1 for birch and 1 for oak.
I clipped the apples till I filled up an entire section with apple trees. for birch I clipped it but then quit using it after I got a decent sized section. I am mainly farming oak trees right now.
My favorite part of the map is this one high hill.

Not sure if you can see it on normal size but its pretty cool how it goes up.

Actually I've been looking for a good tiny seed. When randomizing, it's not too difficult to run into the flat world as above.
The problem with that world is there is absolutely no water for a well so if you run out of drinks, you are sol.

I -did- find a nice seed that wasn't too difficult to terraform to a flat land and had a small section of water in the very top middle of the map. Enough for a well and not too deep or invasive enough to ruin any plans for the -1 floor :)
Seed: 552442160
Start 0,0

Now to find a tiny one that has a river in it. There are entirely too few seeds with nice rivers for moats.

Not even going to touch the other one. From the title it looks like someone's personal catalog of strange seeds they've found. Strange does not mean useful. I'm not looking for a world made of water or an egg shaped mountain. I want something useful, not strange.

Having wild strawberries but no wild cotton is almost impossible. Having something else other than starter yaks when you start a freshly generated world is absolutely impossible (as it is right now).

Funny thing is, "Foraging" doesn't exclusively mean "look for food". People also use the word when referring to finding medicinal herbs.

I don't blame you for not getting it right away, though. Good to know there's nothing weird going on there.

If you want a mountainy world full of basalt, seed 1 and starting point 0,0. If you want a flat world try seed 1000000000 and spawn point 1000000000,1000000000. (all of these are 1 billion, which is a 1 and then as many 0's as will fit in the blank.)

Any world with a high spawn coordiante will be flat, but other things will be weird too.

there is also a savegame editor which can remove all the water from levels -1 -2 i like a rather specific placement and form for my kingdom so i use this, fill in any ponds, dig a cistern that fits my kingdom layout and then generate water on level -1 & -2

Anyone have a decent Huge Seed that hits Basalt early when digging down? Usually the first stone I hit is Serpentine but I like Basalt much more. I've got a good seed right now that hits Basalt on lvl 17. Usually I don't even start to build my base until I hit a stone layer I like. The only things I put in the top soil layer are stockpiles for seeds and clippings for my farms on the surface. My preferred stone types in order are Basalt, Bauxite, and Marble. Thanks for any good suggestions.

Much appreciated, Bohaq, thank you. Will "1" as a seed number work for a Huge map? I'll give it a try and find out :) . All the numbers I've seen for huge worlds are usually long numbers. Or is that not relevant to seed size?

The seed number is totally independent of map size, all the map size does is make generated map larger.  You can see this yourself by using the "Preview" function and trying different sizes with the same seed.

Also, you should try this seed: 398681806

It has a very large hill near the center that has a projection of with a few stone types very near the surface level.  The outermost is granite, that actually extends above the 0 depth; by -1 depth you'll start to encounter basalt within the the granite; then one or two levels down there will be lapis lazuli with the basalt.  By that depth looking down it will form two rings, the first granite and the second basalt, around an oval core of lapis lazuli.  There's also a thin cavern that goes down very far so be careful with that...

Edit: Just looked at the save and I was slightly mistaken. :-[  There are four types of stone, not three. :D  I the sandstone between the basalt and the lapis lazuli.  So you should have a fairly good range of colors for your stone goods.

Will do, Exfides. That sounds like a great map. I went from trying mountain maps to trying a more flat map but I still have the urge to carve a castle into the side of a mountain. When I go back to trying to make a mountain keep I'll give that a shot first :).

Flat map: granite can be found at levels -7 to -16

This is the seed I used for Weedswatch way back a while ago. Please note that on "Small" there are a heckuva lot of Apple Trees on the west side of the map, and the East side has a nice place to dig in for defensive purposes.

Seed: 2443027128

Of course, you have a pretty deep cavern starting at about -6 or so, but you can get Lapis early. Sandstone, Basalt, Bauxite, and Serpentine are all available before level -30. Trading for copper ore is probably your best bet, though, because if I recall on default settings it doesn't have much early on.

1179127285 - Default Settings, it spawns you next to a river and a nice hill with which you can wall in and have a great time.

I love finding a great seed, especially for a "theme" play.  I don't know about most, but expect a number of you go into a new map with some sort of theme in mind for how you will build or assignments and the like...

Anyways, I wanted to highlight a couple of the recent seeds posted, as there are some great ones.

1179127285 - Default Settings, it spawns you next to a river and a nice hill with which you can wall in and have a great time...

1179127285 is a seed I have been looking for for quite a while.  I call this seed "Lonely Mountain" as I have been looking for a map to build the Dwarf Fort and Dale from The Hobbit.  This map has huge potential for that, big lone mountain with flat lands all around and a "stream" already issuing from the mountain.

Big hill in the center, decent lake nearby, lots of flats for farming all around the hill, some hills on the edges.

Seed: 1589219698
Size: Large - Huge

This one is also great, as there are two lakes but one is set up higher, making it a mountain lake, I don't see that all that often.
I think I set the coordinates at 5, -20 on large, if I am right, even the spawn location is epic for a mountain lake build.

I will try to come back and attach pics, but on the run right now, had to put my two cents in on those two awesome seeds.

Does anyone have a seed with just apple trees? I found one without and one with just one recently so I assume it's possible. TY :)

Alternatively, you might be interested in trying kinsi's Gnomoria Save Game Editor which has the ability to convert all of one type of tree on the map into another. So you could convert all the pine and birch trees into apple trees.

"cheating tool" is debatable, and it's not "promoting" when he only suggested a way for him to achieve his goal. but it's all off-topic anyway. :-X

I'm looking for a seed with lots of water, preferably a large lake, but one that does not look too square or artificial, anybody have any good ones to offer?

EDIT: That being said, I would love for something like "water levels" to be implemented in map generation...

3649310418 has some larger, as well as smaller lakes: http://db.tt/HfZwrEHy

Thank you! I spent 45 minutes generating random worlds and failing to create a nice large lake. Unfortunately I have already started the game and went with the 1589219698 seed posted a few pages back.

I'm aware of that, thank you. But the type of challenge I envisioned required a lake, and once I started it I really didn't want to start from scratch.

Aquifers? You'll have to post in the suggestions forum section.


Also I posted a seed with a rather large lake a few pages back. Also there's one with half the map is water.

Seed 4025025061
Offset  -40, 80

Nice lonely spire (+25 height) vertical cliffs on 2 sides, with a slope to get to the bottom on the other 2. It over looks a plain and some small hills. The offset will center you on the very tip of the spire. Screenshot is standard, but I think it would work on small as well.

It took a while to get the offset right to get them on top of the mountain, but totally worth it. I thought of building a skyscraper like tower out of it, and since it was already a sheer cliff I could 'build' windows (read: remove walls) for some of the higher units.

Random seed I tried: 332423455
(Size huge, terrain settings in first screenshot. Tweak offset to position as you wish)
Has some nice mountains and hills for potential projects, and some nice looking flat valleys for farms.

(Images are kinda large, so I refrained from using img tags.)

Somehow the offset is now -55, 80 ( if you play on Huge you can see another tower off in the corner of the map.)

I figured out what my typo was for my epic mountain seed. The real seed is: 1343129375  Again, I left everything to defaults and made a "large" size world.

I created a folder in the shared repository with seeds for maps with plateaus: https://www.dropbox.com/home/map%20seeds/plateau%20seeds (https://www.dropbox.com/home/map%20seeds/plateau%20seeds)

Lately, in an attempt to get a change in the game experience from Gnomoria, I have been hunting for plateau maps. I'm not sure if I accomplished that objective well enough, and even if I did I'm not sure it was for the better. Experienced players will probably find these maps a bit easier overall. For most of these, it is easier to assemble a defensible position and get metals from mining (like, gems and copper at +20 or higher), but a bit harder to get an agricultural area. You can somewhat compensate for that by adjusting the map setup (difficulty and metal depth).

ANYway, if making a playthough from atop a high mountain sounds like something you would like to try, then by all means go give it a look.

Hope you'll forgive the necro'd thread as I should think keeping this sort of thing in a single thread is useful.

Like the lonely mountain one on the last page. Thanks!

Looking for more interesting seeds to share. Personally wanting more "lonely mountain" style seeds. The "egg shaped" one didn't seem to work.

Here's one that maybe has potential. Haven't played it yet. Some flat terrain areas for farming. Some sizable hills. Some sheer cliffs. Visible stone. Water. Many options here.

Settings as shown on second screenshot (default terraing settings, huge map).

a nice seed would be a flat plateau in the middle of the map, abundant with at least one type of fruit tree.

I would think everyone has their preferences, though what you suggest sounds good for building large structures (horizontally) above ground. Not sure what you mean otherwise.

stumbled on the plateau seed i was looking for.

3567657445
adjust height to preference
hill width +3 to +6
smooth 0 to +1

best on large or huge maps.  gives a large oval hill in the middle of the map.  you can lower the height to increase the plateau flatness.  plenty of trees.

I play on huge mainly due to my unliking of the super small size. Nice or decent places are hard to find but if anyone wants some black or white stone to start with look between 1 and 10 just 1 and 10 literally there pretty good but still not my style and I do not think I will ever find a good map

Seed:705052418

Very easy to build on plain. It has little water and a lot of trees. I recommend building a base in the corner where the water is.

Settings:
Map size huge
coordinates 2000000000 0
