Could we add a map generation option that "has everything"?

Recommended Posts

I'm really enjoying the game, but in a long play session I realised sometimes maps may spawn without one or two key things you want to build your perfect base with and that can be a bummer. It would be a nice thing if some map generation option could guarantee your world would have:

- Chlorine Vent - for farming
- All three kind of metal volcanoes - for all the crafting needs
- A regular sized volcano - for heat builds
- At least one of every planet type, especially a Gilded Asteroid for Fullerenes and Helium Giant for Niobium

Sometimes you want to start a map with an intend on running a colony on it for a long time, but then you get a seed without any of the above which can be disappointing. The only option to get the perfect map is to try random seeds, enter debug mode, scrape the entire map to see which vents you get, then individually scan the planets to see what you get, meaning it takes about 5-10 minutes to check each seed. Either having a way to influence what you get, or having an option to make sure you get access to everything you might want would go a long way...

ATM you cant have a specific map which has all you need from the start.
I mean you can, but its down to RNG

Or you try https://toolsnotincluded.net/map-tools/map-browser and (de)select everything you want or dont want to be on your next map, and then it lists you every map with given values.

Tried this, works great.
Its not a 100% accurate, but I`d say 85%.
I wanted a map with 2 slush geysers and one polluted water vent (+ other stuff) but got only the slush geysers, which is not bad, but had to figure out how to warm the water for crops.
