No....not L-system. Instructions here, don't ask me to hold your hands...the very least you can do is read a bit... http://area.autodesk.com/learning/mcg-whats-new-2018--sample-pack

If you're ultra lazy, you can just drag 'n drop the mcg into the viewport.

(of course, it can be done with 2016/17 too..but I ain't going backwards..)

Brick Wall Builder is a scripted plugin created using 3ds max MCG and as the name tells it creates a various shapes of brick walls with huge amount of flexibility like you can choose multiple kinds of stones and apply a random materials to them in addition to changing the position,rotation and scale uniformly or randomly. It's as simple as just picking the shape and the brick and it will do the rest, and when you are done with distribution you like and thought of changing the shape length do worry also has the ability of maintaining the count and distribution while you are doing so. 

How to install: After downloading and unzipping the file go to Scripting menu and choose Install Max Creation Graph. after installing you will find it in command panel creation tab under VFXarabia category.

Please for more info check the tool videos or the tool page on my website: http://goo.gl/SsLwxK

Loops from Surface

Simple example of growing loops from open-ended surface. As such, it only looks for the first border and expands from there. Here it is shown on Cylinder with caps removed (default advanced sweep output would also work):

In your dreams, I give this to you for free...

Reality check, $5USD...

Here you can see I've gone in and deliberately deleted some segments so there's a mix of closed and opened curves in a spline....it will still work...

MCG Arches

REQUIREMENTS: Max 2016 + SP3 +EXT1/2, Max 2017

Installation: Scripting, Install Max Creation Graph...

Creates various types of arches: Circular, Lancet, Trefoil, Ogee, Reverse Ogee, Inflexed and Horseshoe. Please note that I didn't follow any ancient building codec strictly to the letter...only that the curves are derived from perfect circular segments. Using the Curvature adjustment, you could get other arch types like Parabolic, Elliptical ...etc...
