My History Using Visual Basic
I bought Visual Basic in 2010 because I use VBA for my work and wanted to use the full program for a few small projects. One of the first things I did was to convert my Chaos program from Blitz Basic (details on the Fractalytic page) but hopefully I'll get the chance to show more work soon.
As it's name suggests Visual Basic is based on a BASIC (Beginner's All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) language but has similarities with other object oriented languages that I have used (such as Delphi). This page is being used as a showcase for my current work in progress.
I now use Visual Studio 2017 for my Visual Basic projects as it also integrates with several other languages.

As an accompaniment to my Fractalytic program this is a (very) simple Fractal Landscape Generation program based on the midpoint displacement algorithm. It's main function is the algorithm rather than the graphical capabilities.
First release: 17/05/11 (v1.00)
Last Updated: 18/07/12 (v184.108.40.206 Added zoom function, adjustable sea level, new island generation algorithm and extended to a possible 131,072 triangles)
Download size: 68kb
Released July 2012
This is a complete program but doesn't really do much so I intend to spend some time improving this and making a more advanced version with better options and drawing features.
I still have lots of work to do on this but it can generate wireframe or filled landscapes which can be rotated and zoomed with up to 131,072 triangles in five colours.
