Bug Description

cross reference: WL Q 233795

Part 1: one implementation may involve increasing the rate-of-decay from the "center" of an ore distribution to allow for more "centers" to be seeded on a mountain. Maybe a log (perhaps not base 10) function determines the relative amount of ore available and the dropoff is linear. This would have the effect of having a stable patch with a lot of ore, but a sharp dropoff at the "edges"

ore_count_available = log (starting_seed - constant_penalty*distance) where starting_seed is a random value from 50 to 10000 or so? Haven't really tried to plot it out though.

Thanks for reporting these issues. There is plenty of room for improvement in the random map generation and I think you've found some concrete tasks which would help in that regard.

PS. If you want the cross-referenced with the original question, you may want to go to the question page and add the bugs via the "Link existing bug" link. Then the question can list all the bugs and each of them will have a link back to the question on the right side here.

Also, please add the tag editor to the other issues like I have done with this one.
