Barnsley+Mobius UF tut.Barnsley-Mobius easy tutorial

This tutorial shows you how to easily make a good image using Barnsley formulas in UF5. I will not take care of the coloring style, but only of the basic shape, I'm sure you are already able to get a good colouring by yourself using some tutorials around.
First of all, update the formula database; it can be useful for having new stuff available.
Now open UF, then hit CTRL+N for a new file.
Go to "Public" fmla folder, then in LGN.UFM (it is my folder...) then choose "Barnsley customizer". (Another nice formula is "Pinski's Bar customizer" in the same folder).
Set maxiter=250 (more accuracy)
In formula tab, expand the "Settings" heading - just to tweak something... for example set Extern shift = (0,1) , f(c)=tanh, f(z)=cosh. Now adjust the strength of those deformations, set % of f,p = 4 and rho% = 12 - if you use too high values you can blow up the Barnsley effect so be careful...

OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe
