Before each game begins, a player must generate a new world.
The map seed can be randomized and any of the parameters can be adjusted before generation, giving players a unique map for each new game.
Map Size dictates the size and number of claimable territories, as well as the number of players allowed on the map.
- Small Maps can have 4 or less players at once.
- Medium Maps can have 9 or less players at once.
- Large Maps can have 16 or less players at once.
The player may additionally change other settings which will impact the way the world is generated including:
- Sea Level
- Mountain Density
- Number of AI Players
Once your world is generated, start the game and you will start with a 50-thousand foot overview of the world. Zoom in with the middle mouse wheel and plant your colony.
