Are the mincostheta and maxcostheta also available in blend shaders?

I rendered this overnight with real atmospheric scattering on an Earth-sized globe; big thanks to FakeShamus for the scene! It's not final yet, this scene has so much potential :)

Is there training on ISL? or at least on using ISL materials.
I have no programing background, so this is probably out of my ball park.

you could use this for appplying moss to dirt or tree bark surfaces as well.... very very nice.
The render looks amazing BTW

looking great so far. Perhaps some clouds via Ono's volumetric scattering? :)

I'm currently working on a mountain range landscape for use in my steampunk competition entry. I'm not very good with code and I've struggled quite a bit over the past few hours to understand where to put the shader lines of code in with the rest of my material code and how it actually works. Whenever I try to copy either Fakeshamus or Ono's examples I'm only able to get one material to show up on the mesh during render.

Would it be possible please for somebody to upload a blend material to the database including this slope effect or to paste the full working material code here? Pretty please!

here, I just uploaded my most recent version of it: http://www.indigorenderer.com/materials/materials/725
added some noise in bump which breaks up the coverage a little.
this is my original (clunky-code) version which only blends between color, none of the other material parameters. I haven't been able the get Ono's version working either - is it implemented in the recent versions of Indigo yet?

Thank's Fakeshamus you're a gentleman, this is a great start off point for terrains.
