Whats the point in having maps with no oil? Why block a large part of the game based on luck? All maps should have at least some oil.

Did you happen to generate your world before the Aug 7th patch?  I can't find any on TNI that don't have a pocket containing at least 120T of crude oil after that day's patch but several oilless worlds before that date.

There should always be some or small patch of oil biome o-o, use debug mode to see the whole map. (If you did not save game after using debug mode, game achievement will still be enabled)

Press F4 for material overlay and go to Mineral, Look for red spot for fossils. Most of the time it should be oil biome with some oil reservoir in it else...ggripperino slickers only way is harsh.

Mind sharing your seed? That's a bug of wordgen worth reporting, but devs won't be able to fix it without the seed I'd think.

You might have buried oil, which has oil but less than you're used to in exchange for an absurd number of reservoirs. I'd like to see the seed if you can't find any.

My seed is 1988388481. I don't want to use debug mode because I don't want to disable achievements. I've explored a pretty sizable chunk of the map so far, even up to the surface and have found absolutely no oil.

Assuming you're on Terra: there's plenty of oil on this seed.

What part of the map? Right at the bottom?

Oil usually spawns at the bottom right above magma. Unless you get the "irregular oil" trait which makes it spawn additional random oil minibiomes.

But watch out. It`s pretty hot in there.

You can just make a separate save and turn on debug/sandbox there to check. As mentioned, the oil biome is always at the bottom of the map, just above the magma, unless you have the irregular oil trait, which puts mini oil biomes all over the map. With the 'buried oil' trait, your map will also have less readily available oil, so you will have to get it from oil wells.

If all else fails you can tap any oil reservoirs you find for oil and natural gas at the expense of some water.

You need to supply water to the oil reservoirs. I rolled an Oasisse map with this requirement and it's quite a fun challenge all round.

If there's no oil biome on the map whatsoever, it likely means the map has the trait "Frozen Core", which replaces the Oil Biome with a modified Ice Biome, much colder than a standard Ice Biome.

not the oil, it replaces magma at the very bottom, you still have oil above it.
