    Is there a script that determines starting locations completely randomly? I've noticed that in the nearing hundred multiplayer games I've played with a friend on numerous different maps, we've never started on the same continent.

    Is there an 'easy' way to alter the standard Continents script to generate 3-5 continents (instead of 2-3), and then distribute players randomly, so that there might be a possibility for player 1 and 2 to start on the same continent (and an equal chance that they don't).

    Or is there a script out there that can already do this?

    Moderator Action: Moved to the main forum, because that's where questions belong to.

    You can try Full of Resources. Starting locations are totally random and does not depend on level.

    There is an option also to put human players far away if you'd like.

    That's huge O.o Thanks, it's a place to start, in any case. I just wanted to scrounge that single functionality for use with several other custom map scripts.
