Adding a Mandelbrot set node

This node creates a terrain in the form of Mandelbrot set. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set for more details.

To add a Slope node, right click in the Graph Editor and select Create Node  > Terrain Generation  > Mandelbrot.

Double click on the node to open its parameters:

Setting the terrain size

  • To change the terrain size, edit the Width and Height fields in number of vertices.
  • To change the quad size, edit the Quad size field in meters.

Setting the maximum number of iterations

Use the slider to set the maximum number of iterations. The more iterations you add, the more detail the terrain will have.

Increasing the slider gives the terrain more detail:

Setting the X and Y minimum and maximum limits

Set the X and Y ranges to be computed from the Mandelbrot set.


Parameters

Parameter Use
Terrain size See "Part common to all generator nodes"
Maximum number of iterations Maximum number of iterations to perform.
The height of a vertex equals the number of iterations needed to exceed the norm 2.
Limits Determines the range to be computed from the Mandelbrot set
