whats your preference for starting a new map?

always wondered what others do, since i have played for a while now, i always load through the map editor to do some quality of life adjustments before starting.

Personally I only like using the map editor for very large or very small test or megabase saves. I like using other mods and the configurable settings better for general play.
"Artillery laser cannon shotgun uranium explosive turret tanks" would be the greatest thing ever.

Using the map editor disables achievements, unfortunately, which I learned when finally sitting down to earn "raining bullets" and "no solar" (or whatever). I love the challenge of maps with lots of water, so I either Google cool seeds or just play with settings until I find something I like.

I like to try and setup stuff in the map settings like high frequency and small deposits so I can make a lot of little basses and use a lot of trains

I don't think I've ever even opened the map editor.

I usually used the map editor to get a better overview of the neighbourhood... and often I added one of the resources that were lacking.

Never found a map to my taste by just using the default map settings... either the landscape wasn't my taste or some of the resources were not present or scarce.

But then again I may not be representative... because I know I am quite picky.

if you ever find yourself bored with the game after 17 releases, look into it.
its a lot harder to use right now, and 17 offers massive improvements to it.
