The 3D contour plot is basically redundant in most uses (since the contours are generally matched to elevation) but I would like to overlay contours corresponding to a function of x, y, and z. For example, if I am trying to optimize a system with 3 parameters x, y, and z, and I want the system output displaying as a fourth bit of information at each point on the 3D surface (high output = red, low output = blue, but no direct correlation to surface peaks), how might I go about it?

Utter rubbish.
You obviously know nothing about contour plots.
If you were lost in the mountains and had only a topo map to find your way out, you would not say the map is "basically redundant".
