    I do not understand how the console would know where to put everything on the map. Clearly it did not get the starting position correct for Zorrukk.

    6otM91 closed, so let's use it for a trial.
    The map seed is: -680314155
    The Game seed is: -680314156
    From the Announcement thread:
    Civ VI - 6otM91 Details:
    If it is not noted, then it is standard. If you need a specific value, I have my notes at home, so ask please.
    The opponent civs were:
    France - Eleanor
    Cyrus
    Dido
    Gitarja
    Alexander
    Saladin
    Cleopatra

    Let's see what happens...

    If he used random Civs then they won't match the preselected Civs, and so the map would match exactly but the starting positions would skew based on different Civs present.

    I expect your below settings, if entered correctly, would produce the correct result (though I'm unsure of console versions against PC version + DLC).

    No we can't download files in the conventional sense.

    Ok let me try that (6otm91) and I'll report back.

    A decent enough start for my first diety game.

    I wonder if this was another Civs spot in your game.

    Ok I have version 1.1.2(199115) with all expansions and dlcs.

    Last month I tried to recreate 6otm91 on my iPad, but failed. I was able to figure out the AI opponents on my PC (by moving the save file to the Multiplayer save folder and loading it as a multiplayer game). So I had the map and save seeds, the correct settings, and the correct opponents, but couldn't get the same starting position to generate on the IPad version. (It was close, so I played it anyway). It seems that the map is the same, but with different natural wonders (the Galapagos Islands aren’t on my map), and I started close to the same spot, but not exactly the same. I figured that it was because the iPad and the PC version of the game are on different version numbers now, since the latest expansion came out on the PC, but not the iPad. But if you are having similar problems on console versus PC and they are both on the same version number, maybe it’s something else. Maybe the order in which the AI opponents are specified matters?

    We can do it one of two ways either list the civs for everyone to see, definitely will change peoples planning, or the consoles will have to play a month behind with full spoiler info from the AAR reports.

    you could post your victory screen shot though.

    Still a moot point if we are unable to recreate the correct starting position.

    I say we try again in early September with the Civs from game 92.

    Any update on this? I play on switch and would love to participate in these, even if it’s a month behind.

    Welcome to CivFanatics. :wavey:

    We do not know how to accurately replicate the save file for Switch players and we do not know how to distribute a prepared save, so I do not know how to help you guys to play these.

    You can recreate the save through seeds and can have the same civs in the game, so you can "play" the game but not the save.

    I do not have a Switch and cannot test how to better this situation. I am willing to provide whatever information you guys need to try to do so as long as the game has closed for the month. You guys are going to have to help figure out whether this is possible at all.
