currently i'm programming a mapeditor. i want to include some nice scripts, which generate some islands/continents or other interesting shapes. the algorithm only need to tell me, if to set land on the field (x,y) or not. But in that direction i have no experience.
so if you can tell me some good internetsites or names of algorithm which can be used for this, i have a point at which i can start with the search. some example are also welcome, the programming-speech doesn't plays any role to me. so pseudocode will also be good.
i'm thankfull for every help.
