A Xia simulation with 50 games

Scroll down to see the numbers if you want to skip all the explanation!

Setup

For 2-5 player games, the simulation assumes 2-5 starting tiles with spawn points, plus the Nyr sector with space station.

Setup - Solo

For solo games, the simulation adds the Nyr sector, then keeps drawing sectors until it has at least 4 sectors total and 2 spawn points. If it draws the Xia sector, it shuffles it back in. Then, if Kemplar/Loath aren't already on the map, it finds them, adds 5 random sectors, shuffles that in with Kemplar/Loath, then puts those 6-7 sectors on top of the unexplored sectors stack.

Sectors

The sectors column refers to the number of sectors explored after setup is complete. Therefore, the row labeled "1" doesn't actually mean 1 total sector in the galaxy. It means 1 extra sector after setup. For example, row 1 means a total of 5 sectors for a three player game, but a total of 7 sectors for a five player game.

Therefore, a row for a 5 player game should generally match one row lower for each fewer player. e.g. row 1, 5-player = row 2, 4-player = row 3, 3-player = row 4, 2-player = 7 sectors total. This pattern is different for the Buy segments, since 5 player setup guarantees 5 spawn point sectors, which are the same ones you need for Buy segments. The solo column is also quite different because of the special solo setup rules.

Segments

A segment is defined as one place to get cargo and a matching place to sell it.

If you get the cargo in two places and sell it one place, that's two segments.
If you get the cargo in one place and sell it in two places, that's two segments.
If you get the cargo in two places and sell it in two places, that's four segments.

When calculating segments, Kei's trade ability is ignored for now. Trade segments are the total number of segments in the explored galaxy.
