Have created enough minefields in the editor that I've noticed a trend which may need someone to take a look at.

-Assuming the depth etc is acceptable for the type of mine being laid.

When you specify the number of mines of a certain type to be laid in an area, the number actually laid - I believe is supposed to be a random number. But what happens is you always get exactly 1/2 the designated number +1. So:

Set number for 20 - you get 11
set number for 12 you get 7
30=16 etc

I understand that several things are looked at when generating a minefield but this trend seems too consistent for a random number generator.

I have tried to lay 20 and got 1!!!
As i have been playing around with mines lately, I'll have a look but I really haven't noticed this.

That has happened to me as well, but I think there are other factors at play when that happens. Not sure if this is an issue but it is a bit strange.
