I’ve run across many interesting rolls for planets and while I understand the draw of the game is the randomness, I do like to know if its possible to save certain planet rolls for later? Perhaps by copying certain gamefiles over to a safe folder ?

A "seed value" (integer for PRNG) that could be re-used and shared would be ideal.

since the planet generation is executed in phases, I don't think that it can be based on a seed value. I may be wrong though

I have had this request before. Never prioritized it. But that is mostly due to time constraints and not because i do not like the idea. Another problem is that everytime I would make a version change that would impact the Planet Generation and it would change the result of the seed number as well...

Anyway i re-added the request to the nice-to-have list.
