Version 0.14 and map strings from previous versions

Post by Nazair » Fri Nov 04, 2016 11:15 am

Hi there.

Is there any way to "fix" a map string generated in version 0.13 so the generate map will be the same in the newest beta?
I have some nice string for desert-ish map with nicely spread resource patches that require you to use train system, however with the newest available version (playing on Steam) the map is completly different ;x

Cheers!

It isn't possible unfortunately, as the map generation is completely different

Downgrad the game, insert the exchange string, save the map, upgrade game again.
Unfortunately, even after saving the new version, the map string will not work for the newer version. so you cannot copy the string from the saved game of the newest game version and start again. The map will be different again.
