What is a Map Seed in Civ 6?

When you start a game, the random number generator (RNG) in the Civ 6 game produces a map, which can be expressed through numbers. Map seeds are useful because if you’d like to play with the same map again, all you have to do is input the right map seed for it to load once more. If you’d like to make the map seed the same but a little different, you can spice it up by changing some random numbers in the map seed.

When you put in the map seed, you’ll still need to choose parameters such as size of map, start position, and map type.

Some players have generated awesome maps which they share with the Civ 6 community. Interested in finding a good map seed? Check these out. Communities sometimes play “game of the month” together and share their results.

Best Civ 6 Map Seeds

You can find map seeds on Reddit and many other Civ fan communities. Regardless of your experience level, look for communities that tend to be accepting of new players — they have the least drama, the best content, and are easiest to get along with.
