    Both 100 treasure objects and 100 rescues can be done in the same way, with a custom scenario.

    From the Main Menu, go to Tools > Scenario Editor. Once in, select Place Object (icon of a little figure in the top bar).

    Set Place As to Gaia, then click the black search bar and type in Treasure. There are two entries for Treasure, but they work the same way.

    Unfortunately, I don't think you can actually control what kind of treasure is placed. It's randomly a treasure or a rescue, and the type of rescue/treasure is random too. This doesn't matter too much though.

    Just spam place it all over the place. Once you have a bunch, swap to Place As Player 1. Now search for Explorer and place them everywhere where treasure isn't. There is no limit, so spam freely. This is what mine looked like:

    Now click on Scenario in the top bar, then Playtest Scenario. Test as Player 1. Now just grab a few explorers at a time and send them to all the treasures. Once you run out, press Escape and restart map. If you end up with an imbalance of treasure/rescue like I did, then you can just skip the one you don't need after you're done with it.

    MickeyTongAn optimization to this method is that, after you have placed a ton of treasures, and done with "My Hero" and the other "They belong in a museum!", you can edit the scenario again and click on Objects -> Treasure Editor, then scroll the Available Treasure Types until you see Settler in the Treasure Editor window. Now click and drag to select multiple placed treasures, then click Set Treasure Type, then all the selected treasures will become the treasures where you need to kill the predators and save the settlers.

    unequalized joe+1 from me as well. To add on to MickeyTong's suggestion, it is important to note that while it says you saved a pair of villagers, it only counts as one rescue/1% for the achievement.
