    Hey, I'm gorbit99
    I made a new website where I'll post tutorials about algorithms and useful tools and my future projects. My first post is a tutorial about Diamond-Square Algorithm. Because english isn't my native language, I would like you to send me constructive feedback, even if it's something I wrote incorrectly, or soemthing I should change about the tutorial
    Here's the link to the site

    I would suggest adding a brief explanation of why the algorithm should be used to start with. If I've never heard of Dimond-Square, why would I want to use it? What does it do for me?

    Diamond-square is a noise generator for creating realistic-looking terrain.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond-square_algorithm

    An example of a game that makes use of it would be Dwarf Fortress.

    I think it's a way of creating random height maps

    Strange, after I wrote the whole thing I did in fact put the whole code together, and it ran perfectly, that probably means something isn't completely clear. Could you please post the code you put together from that tutorial?
    I try to avoid putting the whole code in one piece on the website, because that way people actually have to read the page, and the whole thing wont be a big pastebin site
