Sierpinski triangle fractal

Post your creations here. It can be either a cool genome or an interesting ecosystem. Indicate if you designed it yourself or if it was created through evolution, or both :). File, picture, or video is required.

Well, just as a matter of geometry, it's as easy to create right isosceles triangles out of right isosceles triangles. And it's relatively easy to create a right isosceles triangle in Cell Lab because it one-half of a square. The problem is that an equilateral triangle isn't easily constructed in Cell Lab, and iterations would be even more difficult.

PS Here is the corrected genome for the Sierpinski triangle. Four modes if I recall correctly.

The basic problem is, that for evenly growing patterns we can only really work with powers of 2. Anything else will need some cells split differently than others, causing asynchronism.

Try to get an equilateral triangle out of that and then make it repeat. I haven't managed that.
