Mandelbulber landscape challenge entry settings



Nepenthes Sloth enjoys using the amazing mandelbulber fractal generating software to create the alien landscapes you see on most of the videos and images. I’m also proudly a patron of the development. My favourite facebook page (after my own of course!) is the Mandelbulber group. Very helpful and friendly admin and members. Every 2-3 weeks they run a challenge on a theme. It's done as a friend competition but it's more about sharing ideas and settings and very helpful for less experienced members to gain an insight into what you can do in the Mandelbulber software.

The latest challenge at the time of writing this was #landscape_challenge As I nearly always use it fr landscape I thought I best enter something (normally too busy doing videos and making mandelbulber landscapes!). Part of the rules are to enter the settings of your fractal so others can use and learn and/or experiment with it. Facebook, despite the glorious rebranding recently, still doesn't allow more than 8000 characters in the comments and even though my settings aren't 8000 it still counts them weirdly and fails it, so I'll post them using this blog. It also means no facebook users can use these settings if you so wish as I'm sharing it to the world. This fractal will appear in a youtube music video in November 2021. If reading this later then check out my video page to see it.
