Hey Manuel, I tried to use your L-system fractals definition to generate branches. I was able to make it work, but now I want the branching to start at certain UVs of the surface, but it doesnt seem to work. Would you please look over my definition and see whats not working. Also the definition I have set up right now is producing duplicates of the same line.
