Extreme halite seeds


#1

Some people have been interested in seeds with a very high or low amount of halite on the map. So I ran some searches using some mapgen code. Indicated is high/low extreme, 2/4 players, map size…

All of these seeds generate the stated map size automatically.

Thanks for that!
However, I’ve no idea on how to change the seed of the game… Any help on this? :slight_smile:

Something like:

./halite.exe -s 1234 bot.exe bot.exe

Oh… Thanks! :sweat_smile:

Thanks, i’ve just started optimizing for extreme high halite amounts. Lost badly to @CKR who has an amazing efficient almost-exponential dropoff collection strategy on a high halite map:
