So, I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the start locations I'm being tossed in when attempting to start a random map game. Often, my sovereign is positioned on the edge of the map, so my faction is nicely bottled up so that I have only one way for my empire to grow. It's BORING.
When I start a game, I want to start in the middle of the map so that I have potential enemies and definate adventure all around me.
I had originally hoped that it was in SD's plans to include North-South and East-West world wrapping capabilities, but it's been quite sometime since that was broached and nothing to show for it yet....so I'm thinking I need to persue another avenue.
It is possible to mod where the player starts on a given random map? I imagine all the factions meet starting condition requirements before being placed onto a random map. I am hoping there is a way to dicate player 1 getting first assignment, and having that first assignment closest to the center tile (don't know the grid number) while still maintaining those initial starting conditions?
