Play on a randomly generated map
This would be a massive boost to replayability and enhance other features like multiplayer. I'm not too interested in playing sandbox or the same maps constantly, but do want to play more.
Also depending on the constraints, an endless mode, for procedurally generated maps would be interesting. Just to see how a colony you could effectively run, whether alone or against/with other people or the AI. It could feel like you went from a small colony, defeating another nearby colony to make a kingdom only to explore the vast seas and encounter another kingdom
When I think sandbox, I think of this being included with it. Playing on scenario maps is nice, but sandbox feels like it should have this included. Just my two cents. Upvoted.
I like the idea of an endless mode, with options for hostile AI and difficulty. Maybe you will meet peaceful AI too? I look forward to crashing the game with thousands of bots spread all across the world!
A procedural generator isnt easy to make bruh ... tho it sure is good to have , if u have a big big team to make that is
The very least, if a random map mode is not possible, let the community create maps. Make those (easily) accesible and you have a lot of extra content already. Ps: random map mode ftw!
Oh, the joy it would be to have an option to auto-create a really large map, with sliders to regulate land size, how rich/depleted in resources the map starts with (% of futile land, how many trees, stone, coal, iron etc), tick boxes to enable/disable AI opponent, water areas, and so on. To be able build a truly large colony without a tightly scripted goal, just go build, bliss!
Good idea, but by adding this you should add options too like :- Density of ressources generation- How much IA (from 0 to 8 by example)- Map type : Island / Plain / Winterland / Forest / Tropical (maybe ?) / Other everybody can have new idea of type- Choice of goal : defeat every IA / Build X / Unlimited mode / Whatever
Landscape generation is a highly-solved computing problem, and has been for many years. You can Google for "landscape generation code" and get a handful of samples & ideas. It's just math.The Map Editor which is included with the game is a brilliant addition, but relies on people of varying ability creating maps. Clicking a button to generate random maps with a small preview so you can decide if you like it would be awesome.Upvoting this idea because it makes the game infinitely replayable.
