I like to start on a x/4+/2+ location and I'll generally CTRL-N till I get one.
I got sick of that and now I modified the elementaldefs.xml to only show minimum production of 4 and only manually decrease tile yield at 15 (trying to get some higher essence tiles).
It feels more broken than I would like - there are now 6/4 and 5/5 spots. I'd just really like to have a good start location and then all the other settle locations be natural.
Any recommendations? Specifically to get at least a x/4+/2+ but if possible also to generally increase the essence yields.
I don't have the pertinent fields front of me as I'm at work.
