My very first map was pretty much open area and I had lots of trouble from enemies even when I didnt have any advanced stuff so it stopped my developement alot. Then I thought it would be cool to start in island and then when Im strong enough I could expand. Searched for cool seeds in forums but didnt found anything which looked appealing. After 3 or 4 generates I got this beauty. Only water settings are changed, ressources/aliens is default. If I didnt missed anything it have all ressources 3 copper, 3 iron, 2 coal, 2 stone, oil.. (Maybe too much but you can clear it in editor). Safe heaven! For someone it might be not enough space (if you use solar power) but its like challenge to make compact factories. Also left and up surrounds big sea so you can landfill it.
