NewsL-systems In Minecraft PinstaffTerrence Dorsey7-Jan-13 12:31 
In this post I use ScriptCraft, Minecraft, and L-systems to create fun in-game fractals and discuss how you can too. ScriptCraft is a Minecraft mod that allows you to run JavaScript inside the game using the Java Rhino library. L-systems were originally created by a Hungarian botanist named Aristid Lindenmayer who was interested in modeling plant growth. You can model arboreal growth, brush and shrubs, and also roots (by changing the modeling environment a bit to bring about different tropisms). You can do more than model trees though – there are tons of interesting fractals to make...
Pro tip: make you sure experiment with lava and water for cool 2D fractals turned 3D.
