Volcanoes now find an optimal lowest point to place start rasterizing, hence no more flying volcanoes

Hello! I have been doing some(some = 1 till now :p ) experimentation on creating "localised noise generators".
Let's say we want to make a single mountain using noise. We'll create a sparse facet and extend Borders to reserve a region for that mountain. But when we're sampling noise how...
