Here via Reddit. This is a great idea, and as someone returning to Civ after a loooong break (like since Civ 2) I'd love to try, but I'm on a console, and the save file doesn't seem to work for that.
Any chance you can include the seeds, so I can play along too??
Sadly a little more complicated than just releasing the seed. Part of the setup almost always includes specific selections for: Civs, City States, and/or Natural Wonders; additionally, potential map mods in world builder and/or selected starting locations. Many months back we talked about releasing this info, but (at least then) thought it had too many spoilers. For example, other CIVs selected designed to make the victory condition easier or harder to achieve; may modify CS's (maybe to have zero or eight science city states) that would likely impact play as you discovered them via exploration vice knowing it at the beginning.
Definitely would like to figure out how to open this to the console folks! One option may be to release all that info at the end of the month, but that would put the console folks a month behind. Interested in your thoughts and feedback!!
