Triangles are the simplest polygons. A partition of a polygon into triangles is called a triangulation. You can choose between random polygons, with barely a chance of two equal sides, and regular polygons, whose sides are all equal and whose interior angles are all equal. The seed control lets you vary the random choice of vertices.
