* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', a GoodBadBug resulted in artifacts being constructed with far more materials than normally necessary, with each extra material becoming an extra decoration. The first widely-known result of this bug had the amusingly appropriate name "Planepacked", and thus until the bug was fixed, deliberately exploiting it was referred to as "planepacking".
