I recently started a game on Civilization V and I really like the map I'm playing. I know it's possible to manually input a seed when creating a game but is there a way to display the seed of a game in progress?

I don't think I've ever seen a spot to specify the map seed, and I'm not aware of any location where the value is displayed on a running map. I will admit to not having total recall of every Civ5 option/value/checkbox/dialog/etc, though ;) –  agent86 Oct 31 '13 at 16:50

I'm not sure about getting the seed from an existing map, but you can save only the map and then replay it with different settings.

In the MODS section, click Single Player. Select Set Up Game. The Map should be selectable here.
