Big Bang bugs:

When you select "Randomize seed" it ONLY gives you a seed within a range of 2,212,0xx,xxx to 2,212,1xx,xxx.

In a 30K universe with 80% port density, and a 95% port "build-at-bang" you should have a total of 22,800 ports in your fresh game. The ACTUAL number of ports that are created with these settings is 19448. This probably works the same for 20K, 10K, etc.

Edit: Whoops! Wrong forum!?

Anyway, the port building bug only seems to occur with the 30K universe.

The randomize seed bug means that most people have never played seeds 1000, 5000, 10000, etc. Seed 10,000 is interesting in where it positions the Classic Ferrengi home sector and both of the class 0 ports.

One day, the entire Tradewars 2002 fanbase will tremble at the mere mention of "Lionmane." Too bad it's not my name!?!?! -Krovach
