I've learned a lot from reading through the source code, even though my cpp
knowledge is mostly acquired through hunt (online) and code, or writing Arduino

There isn't any way (to my knowledge) to affect the distribution of random
points, which is why so many people have expressed interest over the years in
having an SDL version of the voronoi pattern.

I've had a lot of success (not 100%) with adapting ShaderToy code to SDL, so
maybe at some point I can figure out how to make a voronoi pattern in SDL based
on some of the scripts.

Maybe some of that will be clearer / of more use to you.
