Description: Mandelbulb 3D v1.8.9

DEcombinate in InvMax mode using: transform2IFS/cylinderIFS/trans-qIFS/tilingbrickIFS/Menger3

Think I've been away from FF far too long! Like it or not folks, it's time to start posting here again!!  wink

In the remarkable series of 'Culture' SF novels by the late lamented Iain M. Banks, he wrote lovingly about his 'General Systems Vehicles', or GSV's. These gargantuan, self-aware starships were literally miles in length, and were so vast that they contained bays in various locations, where smaller ships could be constructed!
This fractal image shows my imagining of a construction area on the top deck of a GSV.

@KRAFTWERK: Actually, you're not far wrong Johan - I believe the 'smaller' MSV's also constructed ships within their own bays....  Yes !!  wink
