By chance, I rediscovered Cedeaq's code from back in 2010. It was an 
answer to a query by Patrick Elliott 
(http://news.povray.org/povray.general/thread/%3C4ca93948%40news.povray.org%3E/?ttop=371487&toff=200&mtop=351355).

I didn't change the principle but corrected a few minor issues, added my 
own stuff, and streamlined the landscape parameters. The result is 
(still) a fast and interesting landscape generator.

Please find the code in p.b.scene-files for your amusement and play.

Here we go... first, I made a physical map of your landscape. In the 
coming days, I will experiment with your parameters, try out new 
functions... and perhaps I'll find out how to create realistic mountain 
ranges, wider plains and monotonously descending valley!

I posted the modified code in p.b.s-f!

See you in Khyberspace!

Great! The possibilities are endless of course and your map addition is 
an interesting idea. Realistic mountain ranges can be obtained using the 
f_hetero_mf function for instance. Before you know it, you will end up 
with a monstrous amount of code generating magnificent landscapes at a 
crawl. ;-) Been there done that: It happened to me in the past with my 
Geomorph isosurface macros...

However, that is the fun of it isn't it?
