    Mode: Survival
    Mode: Singleplayer

    SEED-ID: global seed 129237
    Playfield seed 438952

    Reproducibility: Always with those seeds. Other seeds have no problems and work.
    Severity: Brreaks story

    Type: Story / Gamestart
    Summary: Some seeds , the Monument POI doesn't spawn

    Description: Which breaks the Tales of the Past / Creatures of the Night part of the story.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    12.5 (2926)
    verify/validate game files.
    start a game
    Swamp planet (use that seed)
    open console
    ents -all
    Monument POI no spawn

    What I think is happening is that the Chief's village spawns in a really mountanous area of the playfield and the monumet doesn't fit anywhere.

    I am afraid I cannot reproduce. For me all the POI are there .. The Monument and the Alien Tower.

    Question: Can you go to console and type in 'difficulties' ? Or compare if the stats look the same like here:

    I'll see what I can learn about this on my side, now that you confirmed you cannot reproduce.

    Now that I'm looking, I see the odd RandomPlacer PlacePois errors on new game starts.

    I cannot reproduce with 12.6 either. I sense this is a fluke and not worth the dev's time anymore.

    I am seeing the same thing in the new 12.6 public build 2939 swamp starter planet (Balavi) seed 200615. Attached is the console 'stats' command, and a save game. This was a new start 2939, survival.
