Volcanic island seeds requested~
« on: November 02, 2007, 06:41:00 pm »

I'd like to try my hand at a Yserbius fortress; if anyone's got a seed for a world with one or more volcanic island formations I'd 'ppreciate it. Surrounding difficulty level isn't really important, tho something of middling threat would be nice.

Here's a param file from my world, there's an island with volcano, monster caves, and undead tower.

I've had a number of volcanic islands, but none of them combined a volcano tile with ocean tiles.  The "local zone" cut off never allows this, it seems.  Volcanoes are always surrounded by a full zone of land.

There's some volcano worlds up on the wiki, also.

Here's mine. Lots of volcanoes with some on islands and some not. Only took four rejects to get the world I'm using, too.

Can't find it. Can you post some directions or the name of the volcano?

There are several volcanoes in the world I got from seed 0; it shouldn't be difficult to find them with a bit of searching.

Seed 77404199 results in a world with plentiful volcanoes, at least 7 of which are close to water sources. At least 2 are on absolutely flat forested islands with aquifers. I find that very interesting, a nice way to make obsidian walls for your shaft to the bedrock.  :)

I went on a 2x2 tile map with a volcano and upon arrival my base fps is about 70, and only goes down when I start giving orders.  Is this just part of the price for volcanoes?  

Is there a way to have access to magma for a magma forge so one doesn't have to rely on trees other than starting on a framerate-crippling volcano?

Specially since coal doesn't work anymore, access to magma seems critical.  I just tried turning temperature off but it still didn't let me get past 30-40 fps on volcano maps

Just tried someone special's birthday. At least 3 Island volcanoes, including a rather nicely placed one smack in the middle of a nicely shaped lake.

EDIT: Seems full of volcanoes. My first fort is going to be on a glacial volcano... might be interesting.  :) Also, it seems like the volcano in the lake can coexist with ocean and grassland... Not sure if this is what you meant by island volcanoes or not, but that spot seems cool.

While it does have one volcanic island, this region (seed 2231953816 -- 57 rejects) contains something far more interesting (in my opinion):

An exposed magma vent, surrounded by glacier, with an ocean!

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on perspective) contact to the location is limited to Humans and Dwarves. Also, it has an aquifier. I do not have additional details, as I have only played at this location for a short time.


I would love to find a region with an oceanic glacier-volcano. But the odds of that seem to be fairly improbable.

1669188960 has three or four, but See the thread on Seed rejection on why you may wish to avoid it.
