Reseed!

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.


INSTALLATION AND USAGE:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Subscribe to this mod.
* Start civ5 and click *MODS*. Download will automatically proceed (it it does not, Steam messed up, look at the links section - Fix Steam install).
* Enable this mod.
* DO NOT CLICK *BACK*.
* Click *NEXT* on the bottom right, check that Reseed is listed.
* DO NOT CLICK *BACK*.
* Click *SINGLE PLAYER* to start or reload a solo game.
* Once your game has started, open the diplo corner menu (smallest button on the top right corner), then click 'Reseed!' to open the mods' window.
* 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.

"Preview new Map" probably saved many hours looking for a Spain GBR start...thx :)

Really good idea but it sucks there's so many limitations, basically useless after turn 1

you make really graet mods!

Surely this mod doesn't HAVE to apply "quick Combat" when you re-seed.

More on the preview issues I've been having. I realized it happens only with custom civilizations from the workshop, and the map I previewed is indeed the one that loads, but the starting position of the custom civ on that same map is altered between preview and load.

This mod is great however when I reload a new map it removes the battle animations.

deleting the __reseed save may have fixed the issue.

I'm having the same issue as zohar101. On restarting on new map, it just starts on, well, a new map that I've never seen before, as a different leader.
