What does the Terrain option do?  It says something like "makes sure some terrain that is seldom seen is seen more often".  My concern is that it randomizes it so that if a ufo crashes in the desert, you might get something that is not the desert.  I am playing a Superhuman ironman game so I have to take advantage of good terrain, but I am curious about what the feature really does.

If I recall correctly, I think this option was more for TFTD which has tons of unique underwater maps but the game tends to always pick the same one or two tilesets, Volcanic terrain being the most common.


For UFO, most of the terrain have their corresponding tileset, so there's not a lot of variation. Jungle gets two, forest in the North hemisphere, jungle in the South hemisphere.
