I have the following code selecting a random type of terrain to generate:

1  
2  
3  
4  
   
        public int type = 0;
   Random rand = new Random();
        type = rand.nextInt(3);


What are all the possible outcomes?
0,1,2 ?
1,2,3 ?
0,1,2,3 ?

I love making games...

From JavaDoc:
Quote
Returns a pseudorandom, uniformly distributed int value between 0 (inclusive) and the specified value (exclusive), drawn from this random number generator's sequence.
So 0...2

Why didn't you just test out your code? Seriously, its as simple as throwing that code into a main method and printing out the result.

Everything in programming is 0 based (well some of it), so of course the "number in the brackets" won't be included.

nextInt(int n)
          Returns a pseudorandom, uniformly distributed int value between 0 (inclusive) and the specified value (exclusive), drawn from this random number generator's sequence.
