Genetic fractal explorer enhanced

Nice hairdo fractal GF

Upon suggestion by one of our blog followers (thanks Ben!), I have enhanced the Genetic Fractal Explorer. There are now a lot of interesting other parameters that you can change.

Relative growth controls growth between two subsequent generations
Branch angle controls the turning of the branches
Zoom zooms in. Since the image is centered on the root, you’ll probably have to adjust the y-offset.
Iterations how far the fractal evolves. Be warned, when you increase this, the refresh can take a long time because the number of calculations increase exponentially. If it gets stuck, just refresh the page and start again.
X-offset Moves the image horizontally
Y-offset Moves the image vertically
Random (!) Varies the branch angle randomly thus simulating real world fractals as we find them in the natural world.
Dragon (!) This is very neat, if I may say so. In stead of having two symmetric branches at each branch point, this value adds an offset to the left branch.

The Genetic Fractal Explorer comes in two versions.

Below are some of the genetic fractals you can make with this. Enjoy!
