Ah! Thanks for the tip on this one. :) One little piece of info I was
able to find online was that Simplex is faster in higher dimension, I
guess that make sense now from what you just said.
Quoting Mark Alexander:
> Hi Alex,
> Simplex noise is a faster version of Improved Perlin noise that uses
> tetrahedrons instead of cubes for the noise control points. Because it
> has fewer control points to interpolate for a single output point, it's
> somewhat faster than Improved Perlin. It is similar in quality, though.
