Thank you, the current version produces even "better" results (all sides are
now drawn in correct order).

Yes, now that I have got the basics somewhat right, the following parameters
could be set/changed in a dialog:
*) height of pyramids / random height? (boolean toggle)
*) size of pyramids
*) viewing distance
*) direction of light vector
(later: pyramids/blocks; don't hide partially visible objects)
I still need to figure out useful default values for the settings (currently
height = 80, size = 50, distance = 250, light vector = constantly changing to
test the shading code, in the .c-file on the web it is (1,0,0), but need not
If you are interested in coding up (parts of) the dialog, just fetch
the .c-file from the web and insert the code wherever you see fit, I can
merge your changes later with my own latest version.
The most appealing part of this task is probably the representation of the
light vector - of course, 3 text-boxes each holding an integer would
"suffice" (certainly for the initial version of the plug-in), but you may
find an easy way to actually show and let users interactively edit the vector
