As of September 5th, 2016, the Terrain Pack has been updated to the latest nightlies and re-reeleased as a stand-alone mod, separated from the Area 51 (http://www.openxcom.com/mod/area-51) mod. If you would like to try the all of the features of the Terrain Pack but with new missions, weapons, aliens, research, and some more, then check the previous link :)

Main Features

* 100 new terrains, including TFTD's Port, Mu and Atlantis terrains, for UFO, Terror Site and Alien Base missions

* Reworked Geoscape, originally based on Volutar's mod with more landform detail, and latter added several additional textures

* Total of 144 cities, both vanilla and new ones. Each city can now have 1-3 specific terrains assigned for terror missions out of 31 possible terrains. The terrains assigned to cities match their geographical location

* 2 new alien base terrains added, Alien Colony and Alien Hive. Colony has a ground level which will change according to the geographical location of the base

* Terrains for UFO missions are now divided into several biomes: Farm, Desert, Forest, Jungle, Mountain, Polar, Grassland, Savanna, Steppe, Taiga and Tundra. Each biome can several terrains assigned, with more/less hills, crashed planes, temples, swamps, etc. It is also possible to see UFOs landed in city terrains like Industrial, Native or the vanilla Urban

* 80+ new civilians have been added, some will only appear at certain Terror Site terrains, and some will carry weapons of their own

* Terror missions can happen now in the Pacific, North and South Atlantic and Indian oceans. It is also possible now to get Alien Research missions on the Atlantic and Indian oceans since Mission Zones were added to those areas. Terror missions can now be composed of Port attacks

* The Country and Region Zones have been redesigned, using the Improved Nations mod and additional work

Attention: the Terrain Pack does NOT work with 1.0.

Try to install it on 1.0 at your own risk.

Yes. Just copy/paste the content (MAPS, Resource, etc) over the exiting folders in Data folder.

Personally I wish they would add the "mod" folder to the 1.0 version...

I'm having the exact same issues. I want to run this on a normal install instead of the nightly as I have an issue with the current nightly build. Same error message :(

What's to understand? Download, copy, paste. Way easier than installing anything.

I downloaded version 3.7 and when I try to load the mod...I am presented with:
yaml-cpp: error at line 0, column 0: bad conversion.

Any help would be appreciated.
