Könnt Ihr hier einmal bitte antworten?
Welcher Zufallsgenerator wird in eurer Software benutzt?
Diese Frage dürfte doch einfach und schnell zu beantworten sein.
Einfach mal den Programmierer fragen.

So ein wichtiger Bestandteil der Spielmechanik sollte dokumentiert sein!

If you look at all the theories out there on how the RNG might be broken, you will see based on the different testimonials.... it really is random.

Sorry Admin, this is not a serious evidence and I think you can give us better Information.

Any RNG on regular programming languages using their standard libs are NOT random.

If you say, that the RNG, that catan universe is using for:

Dice,
Mixing Cards,
Board Layout,
Number Generator (except the spiral mode)
Start of Number at spiral mode
and any other randomness

is really random,

it means, that these numbers are NOT generated by any computer based algorithm!

So you are using already a system or service like random.org which provides a random number series
created by some kind of physical properties?

Quote from random.org(e.g.):

"What's this fuss about true randomness?

Perhaps you have wondered how predictable machines like computers can generate randomness. In reality, most random numbers used in computer programs are pseudo-random, which means they are generated in a predictable fashion using a mathematical formula. This is fine for many purposes, but it may not be random in the way you expect if you're used to dice rolls and lottery drawings.

RANDOM.ORG offers true random numbers to anyone on the Internet. The randomness comes from atmospheric noise, which for many purposes is better than the pseudo-random number algorithms typically used in computer programs. People use RANDOM.ORG for holding drawings, lotteries and sweepstakes, to drive online games, for scientific applications and for art and music. The service has existed since 1998 and was built by Dr Mads Haahr of the School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College, Dublin in Ireland. Today, RANDOM.ORG is operated by Randomness and Integrity Services Ltd.

So, Admin please, can you confirm, that catan universe is using a service like this for RNG an NOT an algorithmic based RNG?

I think a lot of people would be happy if you can confirm this.

(In case you are NOT using a service like this, please accept, that the dissatisfication of the crowd is entitled and you should change it in this direction)
