Description
Preview the map. Not satisfied? Generate a new map and restart!
This is a new version that fixes many problems and overcomes previous limitations.
Open it from the diplo corner menu (top right) or hit Ctrl+Shift+R.
Works with and without G&K, with and without BNW.

It will create (reroll) a new map and reset your game. Some things like religions and natural wonder discoveries cannot be reset but you will be warned about them.



COMPATIBILITY:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Works on PC and Macs.
* Works with and without G&K and/or Brave new world, with and without any DLC. Needs confirmation from users without G&K.
* Exceptions are some mods written before G&K and not updated since then that used to modify the diplo corner. See the links section to update them.
* Compatible with most mods and map scripts. A few of them may not work as intended if their initialization routine would need to be repeated after the reset. Modders can see the official thread for more informations and a workaround.


LANGUAGES
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Map options and type are always in your client's language.
* Full localization in English, Chinese or Russian.

* Mac users need to download the archive from the official thread and look at the Mac FAQ in the links section here to learn how to play mods on macs.


INSTALLATION TROUBLESHOOTING
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- I subscribed but the download does not start. Steam broke your download. Close civ5 and delete the cache folder in Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization V. Start civ5, go to the mods page, be patient and wait for all mods to be downloaded. I insist: be patient or you will break things again.
- I subscribed but the download does not start (bis). If Steam continuously fails, try a manual install from the official thread (see the links section).
- I can't see the Reseed label. It was not loaded: DO NOT CLICK "BACK"!
- I can't see the Reseed label (bis). Sometimes civ5 loads no mods if one of the selected mods couldn't be loaded (for example a total conversion mod was enabled but you try to reload a savegame created without it).
- I can't see the Reseed label (ter). You did something wrong somewhere. No, there is no bug, you did something wrong, you will soon realize it. Read everything again.


COMMON PROBLEMS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- The minimap is revealed when I try to do a preview and it is not restored after. This is a civ5 bug, hit the "fix minimap" button.
- The game crashes on the loading screen. It happens on some computers when you load a save in-game. It is usually fixed by removing some mods. But complain to Firaxis, not to those mods' authors: this is a civ5 bug.

Getting the following error:
line/assets/dlc/expanison2/gameplay/lua/assignstartingplots.lua:7775:attempt to compare nil w/ number

Unable to reseed
Is that working with the mod "really advanced setup" ? Im on laptop, saving 2 big loadings time to time would be nice.

Any chance you'll make this mod as a DLC so it won't disable achievements (like EUI)?

Great mod. Definitely comes in handy.

I saw a lot of bug reports and complaints in the comments and I just wanted to thank you for the mod, Spain is my favorite civ to play as so this is really useful because when I can't find a wonder I have to restart from the main menu again. I hate spoiling the map for myself but it's worth it compared to restarting when I don't see any wonders at all, so thanks!

I do not see how Reseed could cause this. I do not think it is related.

@Frederickicusifical
You do not see "Reseed" in the menu? Then the mod was not started. Maybe because you clicked "back" (do NOT click back. Not the firs time, not the second time.) Or maybe because you reloaded an existing game with the wrong mods selected.

nce your game has started, open the diplo corner menu (smallest button on the top right corner), then click 'Reseed!' to open the mods' window. i get confused here. I tried clicking on the diplomatic menu in the corner, but that did not work. hten I tried the mdos list of the main menu, selecting the mods thing. Niothing. What ahve I done wrong? soory for poor typing.

Hi, donquiche.

I noticed a potential game breaking bug recently in regards to gold making.

I play as Germany and noticed that I was not making gold from resource tiles that had been improved by my workers. The bug didn't really come to my attention until I noticed that Barbarian encampments which I had recruited from when I destroyed weren't adding to my total gold, either - it stayed exactly the same.

By two cities and three units I was on -8 gold per turn by the time I quit the game.

This bug has never happened to me before, as this was my first time using Reseed and playing on a save that I had it activated on from before the new game was started. The only feature I used with Reseed was the 'Glance at map' one.

Apologies if this is a unrelated bug to your mod, but it has never happened before now.
