Following are all the commands and options in table form. Commands are given to Terra on the consol command line. Options are the ones in the file Terra.ini. The syntax is somewhat different between the two. Ponder on as a command and Ponder=1 in Terra.ini is exactly the same thing.In Terra.ini we always have the format Ponder=1 with '='. 1 is always on (or True). Commands are always written without '=' and instead of 1 or 0 we have on or off.
This is ridiculous, I know! Re-design needed....
The options that can be set in Terra is in the file Terra.ini. This file has to be in the same directory as terra.exe in order to be found. In fact you can set a new "home directory" in Terra.ini and that will cause all options to be saved in the new Terra.ini
If you don't have a Terra.ini file when starting Terra, a new one will be created with default settings.
The file Terra.ini is read when Terra is starting and all the options are set accordingly.
If you change some options during play they will not be saved in Terra.ini and be used only during the current game, if not saved by the command SaveIni.
Terra.ini is build up by the sections below. Here with the default values (if the book is found)
All of Terra's options can be set in Terra.ini but when starting Terra from command line there are a few parameters that might be useful.
These different parameters can of course be combined.
