comment Generate random starting points at same distance between them
Its random, but in a different domain. IE, if you want random points within a radius, you will still have random points restricted to the circle. In my case, the first point will be restricted to land, but the remaining points will be restricted to land and also their peers. Perhaps i'm wrong and should have described the problem in other terms, but you get the idea.

comment Is there an algorithm to detect the “mainland” on a 2D map?
You should have tried the stack version of the flood algo and save the stack problems. Resulted to be much more simple than CCL (which i've been working the last 2 weeks with no luck.)

As i've been having stack issues in PHP i implemented the LIFO flood fill, worked marvelously.

@Mind Marching Squares Algorithm will come handy to paint the continent's border. Thanks nice suggestion!

@Jon yes! diamond square algorithm to generate a height map, then all bellow one value is water, the rest, land. I plan to use this as continent shape, then another pass to add terrain detail.
