Sounds fantastic. If you can make 5-6 tiny buttons and a couple of variable fields somewhere field somewhere you can apply a variety of random functions, i.e.

button 1- change only non-zero parameters
variable 1 rand % gradient, how much to add/substract from every parameter
variabel 2, percentage of formla variables to change (by % one)
buttons 1-7 - change only formulas 1-7
buttons 7-14, switch formula from another of same class in m3p program directory.

This may sound wacky, however that's how it was practically done in synthesizers. people put in quite large and advanced randomization consoles with say 5-10 buttons and percentage variables, and the different buttons controlled individually: randomize filter, oscillator, sound effects, internal routing, everything, and so forth... it can be a small display with small buttons, just that high degree of control over randomizing makes more advanced results. it's very easy to program too, perhaps it takes 1-2 hours to do and it's probably very fun...

Interesting concept regarding synthesizer controls for formulas.
Not sure if the concepts apply easily to fractal formula. For instance, the 3D formula set has 285 option names in the collection.

it's perhaps cool to have a hotkey in M3D which can randomize a text field by 5-10%, so you just have to select fields in mouse and press ctrl 1/2/3 and it will change fields without having to select the precise digit and then adjust in the numpad, i always make mistakes with teh mouse and numpad and it takes ages. Autohotkey has some random mathematics so it's theoretically possible to randomize 2-3 fields using autohotkey... foundthis:
