This is my first attempt at Civ4 so I might have missed something here, but... Is it just me, or are they not entirely random? In GOTM1 I can consistently recreate game starts, including huts, provided I take the same actions. Also, by playing slightly different I get other, reproducable results. As an example: moving the warrior SW, settling on the spot, selecting a worker as first build and researching Agriculture allways gives me 33g from the hut. If I start with warrior SE, all other equal, I allways get a map. What gives?
