For a lark, I thought I'd create an image using nothing but functions, it still needs some work but I'm not going to get much done over the weekend.

So here we are...

Nice job.  It looks like the pyramids are fucntions as well.  It will be interesting to see where this goes.

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

looks very promising....I look forward to seeing the next version!

Could you post on some of your funtion work, I'm always intrested in  those thing but never figured out how they work.

@Will
I'll post the tgd after I've tidied it up and given the nodes more meaningful names. I might make a tutorial out of it too.

@old_blaggard
Yes the pyramids are function derived too. The idea is to try and not use any shaders for the terrain other than the
displacement shader needed for the functions and the base colour shader. Once I get the terrain looking good
I'll see what I can do function wise to drive the atmosphere.
