how would i create an algorithm that generates a farely convincing terrain landscape that is not all choppy with 1 pass currently all i do is rand()%5+1 and break that up into a switch and then do more randoms for certain cases but its still looks pretty choppy. im just wondering if this can be done without multiple passes

Practically everone into graphics at college do this as a project one time or another, so plenty of info is out there, just search for it.
