Generating random terrain

I have implemented a random terrain generator, and after some tweaking it, it produces pretty good results.

I can seed the generator as I wish, and get the same result every time, or use some other value like the system time to get a new terrain every time.

The lighting is nice, but it doesn’t do shadows. At least not yet. That will be the next focus for me.
