Hi Mandelbulbers!

As an experiment, I opened today a new folder named "Tweaking Room" and included one fractal with parameters as a seed to it.

The idea behind this new folder is for anyone tweaking any of the parameters included there to post its result at least in that same place.  There are no rules as to what a tweak is so your creativity will guide the process.  This is something similar to the Round Robins and Fractal Circles.  However, total absence of rules or requirements on the fractal modification is, I think, new.

I am not sure how to go about the original works except that I suggest the formula sequence be an original of the author and not a tweak itself from some other source.

Of course it would be required to link the tweak with the original work, but only the last one so we don't expend a lot of time following a chain of works which can be followed easily should everybody post just the last.

I would be glad to hear critics, good or bad, to this idea.

Have a happy fractal day!

Mario

Haven't tried it yet, but I most certainly will. I like the idea; it'll give a comparison of how people see things!

What a good idea! I will definitely play with params and post. The more I can learn about this program the better.

I also would like to perhaps start a topic about "Can you improve this?" I have some parameters that look close to being something good, but there's something missing, or the detail isn't too good, or I wish I was in closer or things like that. Do you think that might be a way to get the people who are better with the program to help those who are trying but missing something along the way?

Thank you Peggi. Waiting for your tweak!
As for the new folder: yes :w00t: that is a great idea. I myself posted one work which I couldn't find the final touch to the render. See [link]
With the help of cytotox in fractalforums.com [link] that was substantially improved to look as this [link]

I will be opening the folder soon (or you can do it if you wish.) :D

Oh, good! I'm glad you like the idea. I think those of us who don't know the program so well and are just trying things willy-nilly might well benefit from input and specific info from those who have a better handle on the program.

Please, will you open the folder? I've got to leave work in a minute and it takes me an hour to drive home and then it might be several hours before I get back on the computer, so it would be best if you could do it. Thanks, Mario!
