Maps in Anno 1800 are randomly generated based on difficulty settings and a special map number called the map's seed. All islands are hand-made, the world generator chooses particular number of islands, decides whether rivers appear and which fertilities and resources are present on islands and then arranges them into the map world based on the map type.


Map Types

There are 6 map types in the game:

Map Types explained in further detail. Note that the seeds given in this video are NO LONGER valid due to changes in map generation in previous patches.

Description

This map seed 1800 is best for campaign, not for sandbox because it's was bad for sandbox, but however after many time trying to see good map seed for campaign, I found 1800 is best one for campaign mode for those who want full and everything of storyline, bonus Ditchwater along count of Justice gave 100 (was 150 but got nerfed) attractiveness and Bright sands' Church (special church, not normal buildable church) that gave 400 (was 450 but got nerfed) attractiveness, and resource are very balanced in map seed 1800. I would like to do different but unfortunately, I don't see any good map see for campaign, 1400, 1404, so go on, is very bad map seed for campaign. So far I only find map seed "1800" are worthy, only one, if anyone find good map seed, very balance resource close together island away from a.i, please let upgrade wiki if you discover good or best one, it's very hard to do this searching for campaign, try to get story done in few quest till able to see world map with resource after clear last wood ruin town in Ditchwater. Thank you. Noticed This map do had Anno Union Island, if had Dr. Hugo Mercier in game, I think, it's always seem work.
