So far I have used seeds for the same reason as you too. In the hard mode creative custom start, I had to use a seed that made the ALI dock appear at a certain point, so that I could place the spacesuit close to it.dtpsprt wrote: ↑Fri, 23.

Personally I have tried using specific seeds in my (Creative) Gamesstarts, especially the ones that I start with only a spacesuit and it is crucial for some things (Stations/ships) to be in a certain reachable distance. I did this by generating start after start untill I randomly was in a "favourable" one, noted down the number from the save file and insert it in the gamestart.
But from what CBJ said, there seems to be a way to use a specific seed for vanilla starts as a young gun. The seed of my test has nothing special, it is just a random number that I had entered to verify that it was the same in the save.
The purpose of this is to look for a particular seed where, for example, I can find the Argon Prime sector conquered by the Xenon, or a particularly disastrous state of the universe.
I can never forget that one of my first starts had Argon Prime red in color, with several Xenon caps destroying everything.
But at the time I didn't have the slightest experience in the game, and I just restarted a new game because I was scared of that start.
Now I regret every day not having kept that save
