Does anyone know of an easy, free way to generate Voronoi diagrams in Windows? They seem like a quick way to rough out a slightly random but still grid-like board.

Here is a Voronoi diagram:

Here's a grid generator for Linux:

(For Linux people: I suppose I could use Knoppix to run the Linux version of the Gimp, but would I be able to add the plug-in or am I stuck with what's on the CD? I'd rather not create a dual boot system just to make a grid.)

Thanks,

Thanks Zomulgustar.

I'd like to use a Voronoi diagram/grid as the basis of game board. Something like the Randomness 0.9 grid on my second link above would be good, although I might start with triangles instead of hexes.

At this point, I'd be using the grid as a mockup of the board to decide if the movement rules in the game work with a slightly irregular grid (so perhaps this thread belongs in Game Design not Production).

A Java applet that I could screencap and paste into an image editor would be fine. Ideally, the applet would have a bunch of settings I could tweak to try different grids.

I don't know anything about the math behind Voronoi diagrams, by the way. I found out about them in a Google search for "triangle grid."
