Sadly, I can't map them all for Earth, because there would be conflicts, if civs were set to random - they could start too close to each other and prevent each other from settling their capital city. In that case the one that has its land stolen tries to move away and settle its city somewhere else, which is nice, but that leaves it a bit handicapped, if there's enough room left to settle it at all.
I'm going to do Europe as well.

Yes, such as LongTurn game could be fun. However, the real earth map has extremely unfair starting positions, because the continents have so different terrains. (Aftica and Australia is mostly desert) So it would be difficult to assign 300 starting positions which would use up the whole map in a fair way, therefore a large part of the world would be unused.

Well then, either most of the desert would have to be removed (and the map possibly further adjusted) or, as you're saying, a large part of it would end up not being used, and the remaining space would have to be equally divided among the players, which would surely be possible? Unfortunately, there's a size limit to that generator, there's also no way to view the map in its entirety without playing through it, is there?
I've used it once to generate an Earth map, started in Asia and for some reason India was covered with desert as well.
