Collection of Seeds with exceptionally good starting conditions.

Tidal locked inner planet, fire ice on outer planet, deuterium gas giant (Optimal early game system), 5 O-class stars in cluster (If anyones playing this seed can you provide more info on these O-stars and other interesting very near stars ?

A gas giant with 3 moons (fast logistics). The gas giant is the only source of Fire Ice (0.63/s) and the third moon has 150% wind power and 100% construction area (very effective midgame power generation via XChanger). 2 O-class stars.

Everything has Fire Ice. Gas Giant has two moons.

Ice planet - Fire Ice
Gas Giant - Deuterium
Arid Desert - 150% Wind efficiency

Gas Giant - Deuterium
Gobi Planet 1:4 Orbital resonance

Deuterium Gas Giant
Tidally locked Gobi Planet 114% solar eff.

16180339 The Golden Ratio
Gas giant has horizontal rotation (your starting planet is rotating around the poles of the gas giant)
Lava planet 1:2 orbital resonance
no rares
After trying countless Seeds over six hours (and rushing the first hundred up to Universe Exploration 2), i'm quite sure the starting system can neither have a sulfuric ocean nor any other planetary rare than Fire Ice. Gas Giant has most of the time Fire Ice, rarely Deuterium. Rotational traits are quite rare too.

Special thanks to Flexible Games for making a mod that greatly helped to reduce the time needed to do this. (Link)

If you come across a good seed and want to have it listed here (with your name) leave a message. Minimum stats for a good seed: At least two rotational traits OR 1 rotational trait + 1 rare OR Deuterium + Fire Ice

You start withgas gigant with two moons, large landing place. But if you use this seeds with only 32-33 systems you have white dwarf, black hole and neutron star pretty close. 6-8 ly.

When you'r impressed by someones dedication and work that they clearly made to help others, but are never going to use the help.

Ice Giant w/ plural SAT with homeplanet at HR
Gobi TL at inner
2 Blue Giant (O type) and 4 O type systems

And the gas giant version of my comment before the previous one:

64000393 - 4 O type cluster, 1 TL planet and gas giant w/ plural satellites.

Next time I search for more I'll post some here.

If anyone's looking for some less good start, but more interesting blue giants to try to make a sphere on:

27719786 - 2.259L blue giant, TL planet, gas giant w/ lava satellite
98182416 - 2 TL planets around a 2.4L blue giant
98115256 - Plural satellite starting system, 2.5L blue giant w/ TL and gas giant
16633926 - 2.6L blue giant, TL lava planet
23088770 - 2.695L blue giant, TL planet
38896657 - 2.729L blue giant w/ TL planet (my current seed)
(is it obvious what I was looking for in my current seed?)
Pharue Mar 4 @ 4:10pm 
Figured I'd add another here:

31478473 - 3 O type cluster, starting system has 1 TL planet and ice giant w/ plural satellites.

Cluster also has 2.069L blue giant w/ 3 planets, 1 TL
O type star (PherkadMinor) w/ gas giant and ice giant (and optical/fire ice)
Not much else to note at first glance but I didn't check for much

I'm currently playing using the seed provided by Antares, the system Castula which is really quite nice with three moons orbiting the gas giant. It is two posts below this one if folks are interested.

I haven't started it yet but looks like several great features.
