hi, im fairly new to vb 2010, and i have been working on a tile map that generates random tiles to form a 2d map. Not like the maps in most rpgs but more like the map in mario, where you travel side to side. I would much appreciate it if someone could provide a SIMPLE system to do this. I have read up on arrays so i think thats the best choice. But how would you choose randomly between 3 variables, dirt, nothing, and rock to go into each position on the form. Note that i am using the form.paint to write all my graphics. If you dont understand anything, please ask. By the way, im using a 10 x 3 tile map, so i would need 30 individual tiles.

Please Reply soon!
