Accidental fractal!

Post your Construct-made creations!

Post » Tue Feb 01, 2011 2:59 am

I was trying to make a tile that would replicate until it filled an area, but I accidentally made a fractal instead!

I can't remember what this fractal is called, but I've definitely seen it before. Thought it was a pretty cool accident, though. It emerged from these rules:

- each tile creates new tiles left, right, up and down
- if two tiles occupy the same spot, both are destroyed

(If I hadn't screwed up, only ONE tile would be destroyed in the second rule, not both.)

Kinda like a Koch, but using pixels instead.
Might be interesting to see that on a canvas.

Unintentionally made another:



Can't find either on Google, though! It's weird, I've definitely seen them before. (It does look like the Koch curve, especially the Cesaro version of it, but not quite...)

But I finally got the fill tile working, so that's enough fractal-making for now. :)
