so an easy share per email or some other format
I had more in mind a thread or a subreddit dedicated to sharing maps, such as https://www.reddit.com/r/RimWorldSeeds/top/?t=all, it's one thing to just write down a seed, it's another to have to upload and host them somewhere and having to download them and move them to the right folder. Sure it's doable, but few will.
I agree on the simplistic & ease of posting/sharing of needing only one or more seed numbers to generate a specific planet type for this game.
I disagree on the, perceived, difficulty of folks downloading a 'saved planet file'; but I agree the task of hosting said files is the main issue.
Certainly a lot easier than applying the 'beta patches'.
Based on the fact that the downloads are tiny & easily placed in the main directory 'savedgames' folder (as opposed to, usually, having to find where a game's particular save files are), I am sure no one would find it difficult to do.
Interesting that if this was a Slitherine forum, as opposed to a Matrix forum, the zipped files could be hosted in a thread on that site.
Maybe they would allow it.
If my memory serves me correctly, that site allows for at least a 2-3 mb attachment.
Not sure why Matrix has a max of 200 kbs per an attachment, but it is what it is.
