Excellent start. I'm not so keen on the warped areas (Texturing could make it work though) but I do like the open faces versus the tightly grouped detailed areas.

A strong start with some nice shapes. The Contest is now getting much more intense!

Warp is some tilt and shear, masked. Easily taken out.

"What, what just happened?!" "Dune landed... With a bang...".
Those cliffs remind me of some I saw at the Mediterranean, folded, warped... Like dough of "Sugar buns".

I'm trying to do this without a compute terrain or compute normal, kind of like a personal challenge  ;)

Ah Hah! Even with this self imposed handicap the odds makers in Las Vegas still have you coming out a winner! Seriously though, this certainly will be a challenge and hopefully you'll share some of your 'alternative' magic.  ;)

Well, I can tell you a little already; it's a line of vector displacements, masked and combined, rotated, and so on. But now I'm thinking to add and mix the vectors themselves before a final vector displacement, which should be better. It's only a bit hard to think in vectors  ???

Go ask Lt Chekov, he's used to it!
Seriously, what you'r talking about is in the realm of the dreaded blue nodes so it's totally beyond my grasp.  :( But the results I do dig.

It's not all blue nodes, but I admit that I use some. But (hint) even fake stones are vectors sort of.

Anyway, I made a new, different setup, using one compute normal to be able to pull the top soil layer out a bit. More tests/setups to come....

Nice find :)
I'd often wondered if the FS was based on the Voronoi Diff and with your prompting I've just found out it is. (same seed and scale and they match perfect)
