hey uhm for some reason semirandom is choosing a random god file (from the disabled ones..) and then making all the nations set to AI use that god file.

so the game crashes saying that the nation isnt in the game.

the first map i did with semirandom worked though. now it does this every time

edit: its not doing it when i select early age... what am i doing wrong? it only does this on mid and late

Did some fiddling waiting for a turn to host and yes you can get RanDom to run under Wine/*nix (you need a vb.dll and all three .ocx). You can even get it to spawn the map creation in Dom3 if you symlink your binary as Dom3.exe. Should be able to use the created .map although I didn't wait for it to finish.

SemiRand works fine under Wine as well and you can use RanDom to do it. I did not test it extensively but it seems to have worked. Finding the completed _SR.map in the SemiRand directory was a little counterintuitive to me.

Running SemiRand.yab in yabasic/*nix has a tiny bug you might want to fix.

Code:
320c320
< OPEN 1, path$+"\\LIST_CRATE\\OkEndList.txt", "r"
---
> OPEN 1, path$+os$+"LIST_CRATE"+os$+"OkEndList.txt", "r"
As a minor point of feedback it would be nice if the first post had an attachment that was completely up to date (nation.cfg is 3.17) and included all the GANs and GODs available.

I am looking forward to messing around with this some more!

That means Map Forge will probably work as well in linux with some fiddling + WINE. Good stuff to know .

Is it possible to generate wrapping maps with this?

I dont think so.
There is another program that can generate wrapped maps but unless you are REALLY smart in math its very hard to use. Or do like I did and spend alot of time plugging in random numbers until you hit something usable. But you can run those maps thru the randomizer afterward to generate SemiRandom game maps.
Check out some of the links for MapGen project of ParadoxHarbinger at http://www.dom3minions.com/maps.htm
and if you want to download the mepgen program itself to take a stab at it then its on the links page at

I still have trouble with the basic 4 math functions from 4th grade. My enjoyment of programming is based partly on being able to just type in the formula someone gives me, or having the program do the math for me. Thats what computers are for.

ParadoxHarbinger's "simple" explanations of some of his programs features sounded to me like a lecture from Stephen Hawkins. Personally I think I did pretty good. I got maps out of it that I felt were comfortable to look at, properly colored for the terrains, and in different sizes. But everything in the program is so inter-connected that if someone wanted one a certain size or more water I ended up starting over completely. Any small change affected everything the program did.

Id love to see some decent maps done with it. People do like wraps. You might also snap up Kristoffers file of map icons which would help make the maps look more like other maps that have been made. ParadoxHarbinger's program did have something about automatic icon insertion on the last version but I didnt get it to work very well.

I truly do wish you good luck. Let us know how things turn out.

I just started using RanDom, its fantastic for creating a better SP experience. Thanks Ballbarian.

I did find the installation grind somewhat pointless laborious and created an archive that can simply be extracted to the dominions directory with the updates etc preinstalled. It contains RanDom, the GAN/GOD Compilation, and the Stavis 2010 update. I tested it on a vanilla dom3 installation and it created a map/semirandomized it successfully.

If you ever think about updating it, i'd love "No Independents" and/or "NI outside Fiddled Prov" buttons

I'm just doing it manually for now though so no worries
