This program makes spiral-based fractals. But even if you don't understand any of the math, just push a bunch of buttons and you should still get some interesting images. There's a big 'Tips' box that should help you create good stuff.

INSTRUCTIONS: On the rendering screen, press space to stop drawing lines, and press backspace to go back to the configuration screen.

STUFF YOU SHOULD TRY
I know a lot of people don't understand how this works, so here's some settings that look really cool:

-Try angle increments of 35, 89, and 179. Notice a pattern? These are all slightly less than a number that divides evenly into 360, so based on that you should be able to find others.

-For every interesting angle, try it with different function settings. Also, just switching +/- signs can make a big difference.

-The best looking color settings are fire or pulse on a really low rate setting.

-Starting with short line lengths takes more time, but it can make really cool effects.

AWESOME...but hard to figure out.

Any1 who doesnt rate this 8 or more is retarded. This is the best lookin generator ive seen. TRY " x- y-, x-cos y-sin, initial size-1, initial angle-24, size increment-1.5, angle increment-89, Rainbow rate 10%...its trippin..

Seize the motherfuckin day!

Amazing! yet confusing...

This is a very unique game that takes time to understand and I mean alot of time! But Eventually you'll get the hang of it. Great game and hope to see more from you

So here's mine
x+, y+, x cos, y sin, initial size: 1, initial angle: 25, size increment: 1.5, angle increment: 589, color: fire at rate 1%

trippy

try X+, Y+, X cos, Y sin, initial size 1, initial angle 24, size increment 1.5, angle increment 89, Rainbow rate 50%

try this

x + cos, y + cos, initial size 3, initial angle 7, increment .5, angle increment 30, greyscale @ 50%

Nice game.

Try an initial size of 12.5, initial angle 24, size increment 1.3, and angle increment 89.
X+, Y+, X Sin, Y Cos. It's pretty cool.
