  • Adds square & triangular in the list of pattern that do not have a default grey map (should they also be alphabetically sorted ? (hexagon is out of sequence, or is it mandel ?))

  • Cubic need clarification about which texture go where. (I'm not happy with the formatting of the new paragraph, so if you get a better one, go for it)

The cubic pattern takes six texture elements and maps each one to each of the six pyramids centered at each half-axis, effectively mapping each texture element to each side of a origin-centered cube. The syntax is:

texture {

The cubic pattern and the order of texture elements The first element cover the X+ half-axis, the second Y+, the third Z+, and the same X,Y,Z order is applied for the last three elements, on the negative half-axis (X-, Y- and Z-).
