An update.Hi! Well first off I am mutequacky. Just wanted to leave you with a friendly reminder that all fractals submitted to this group need to have parameters included. Also, I renamed the Tutorial folder to Fractal Resources (For scripts, tutorials, plugins, and also parameter packs. With that said, happy fractaling!!
hey!!!!!!! contest!!!!!!we are having a huge contest......the prizes are amazing!!!!!!!! http://fantasystock.deviantart.com/journal/Contest-Back-to-Fractal-Class-256301711 go check it you!!!!! you have 3 weeks!!!!!!
Martha's Apophysis project - your input needed!marthig has a great Apophysis project going on and she'd like the help of some fellow apoholics!
From her journal...
The f--l--A--r--k ApoChallenges will soon reach the 100th Challenge.
Stan asked to all the participants, to bring some ideas to celebrate that "milestone"
My suggestion is sort of a personal project but
I will need help from all of the Apophysis "experts".
It would be to make some sort of Manual for those new "ApoAddicts" describing what some of the most used plugins do and where or in what type of flame or together with which other plugin they can be more successfully used. I mean those in the first (white) part and those in the Blue part of the "variations" tab
What I mean by this ? An example, from my most superficial knowledge of Apophysis would be:
"linear" is great for doing tiles and/or spirals
"julian" is just fabulous and you can make beautiful structures varying the "power" and "d
hi!i know it's been awhile since we updated this part....i want to thank you so much for submitting all the wonderful params to our little group here! you guys are the best!
DothackerDaichiI'm sure a lot of you have noticed that a very prominent and beloved member of the fractal community has been banned recently.
I'm not going to go into details here, because it's not the place. BUT. If you would like to help out OutsideFate , this is what you can do!
Send FarDareisMai a note with a list of contributions that he made to the fractal community or visit the :#aposhack: chat room and tell us anything you love about him. The more people send them in, the better this will be. It doesn't have to be a huge thing either, personal stories and "testimonials" are great. Even if it is just something like "We had a param pong once and it was a lot of fun" that is AWESOME.
Hi! and a thank you!Hi! i just wanted to say thank you for all the amazing params you guys are posting....it's wonderful!!!
i have been going over some of my old params lately and my question to you is this: Are there any specific types of flames that you want params for???
lemme hear from you!
Depth in UFHiya! Thank you so much for all your awesome submissions, it's so nice to have somewhere that people can share parameters if you can't get into the :#aposhack:
I really wanted to learn how to create depth in UF fractals and recently Jimpan1973 was kind enough to share this awesome tutorial http://jimpan1973.deviantart.com/art/Ultra-Fractal-Params-Tutorial-195228604 Here are some params from when I was practicing this if you'd like to tweak
Hello to you all!recently i have been asked a few times about styles of fractals....so today i thought one style worth looking at is radial blur flowers....i first found them looking at NatalieKelsey's beautiful flame pack that contains the starting params for one http://dragonwinter.deviantart.com/gallery/4341#/d1a48gq.....there are also some scripts on this style as well...two from gitte http://gitte.deviantart.com/gallery/35445#/d1zl03d and http://gitte.deviantart.com/gallery/35445#/d12izoa and there are 2 from Kabuchan http://kabuchan.deviantart.com/gallery/2771512#/d2czmdp and http://kabuchan.deviantart.com/gallery/2771512#/d2d7ew7
i know that radial blurs can be a bit difficult to render but chaotica does an amazing job.....http://lyc.deviantart.com/art/chaotica-178994646
what's up with you today?

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Collection: Alternative Universe
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Hanuman by molee
There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

The Steampunk Menagerie
The magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.
Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
