Hi, sorrrrrry for the somewhat late reply, I was slightly outshifted by a newly taken opportunity
Thank you very much for your encouragement!
There indeed *is* a graphical frontend for designing functions: [link]
and on my old account-gallery: [link]
. It is currently not integrated in CosyGui (and thanks to some bad code prolly never will), but something like that will definitly re-appear in a future version.
The repository component is in fact a central component of already the next release (okay, not too central in version 0.4, but 0.4 will feature a kind of extensible database, and later shall support exactly what you describe). Right now, that is, for release 0.4, it features height-functions, together with some preview renderings.
Thank you very much for the pioneer link, looks damn interesting, your idea of exporting picogen to it is pretty cool. On another note (I am really happy to keep a huge list of todo items), I rediscovered an idea coined "Hike & Render", a mode in which one would be able to hike per pedes, including nature sounds of course, and upon discovery of a nice view one would press a render button
