Default Terrain creation


Im trying to create a terrain and am having trouble making a routine to automatically make it. Does anyone know of a tutorial that explaines terrain making or could possibly tell me how.

The trouble is making the grid. I havent gotten to supplying the height values yet. I created a sub to make a row of the grid, then attempted to make a full grid. the code then screwed up the whole thing. so i think im going to have to read more tutorials

So your problem is building a vertex buffer representing a triangulated grid?
