Hi guys , i wan’t to ask you something about perlin noise generation in defold, i’ve already try to work on it but i don’t understand how it work ! So, i want to create a game with the generation like terraria starbound or crea, i understand that i need to play with the 1D perlin noise generation, i tried it but that gives me some wierd things. Maybe i have not understand very well the principle of the perlin noise, and that is why i am asking to you if you can explain me simply how it really work (because i am not english and i have not a really good english.

the perlin noise i used look like this :
