Nice one Smile | :)

How "random" it needs to be often depends on the application that it would be used for. In the game "Oxygen not included", one can share an entire map by sharing a seed, which is then used to generate the map.

Lots of people here with a background in math and/or statistics - more answers may come tomorrow. Give it a bit time Smile | :)
