0.4.9 Quick Start always same start

#1 Post by raptor » Fri Feb 07, 2020 6:23 pm


I'm testing 0.4.9 RC3 and I've done four 'Quick Starts' now (even after restarting the game) and they all had the exact same starting systems and galaxy. Is this expected?

Quick start remembers the last settings you used (or default ones if a fresh install). If your last game used a random seed, quick start will produce different galaxies, otherwise it will repeat the same one.
Default values has a fixed seed of 0 (not random).
