Rosenzweig-Porter (RP) model has garnered much attention in the last decade, as it is a simple analytically tractable model showing both ergodic--nonergodic extended and Anderson localization transitions. Thus, it is a good toy model to understand the Hilbert-space structure of many body localization phenomenon. In our study, we present analytical evidence, supported by exact numerical computations, that demonstrates the controllable tuning of the phase diagram in the RP model by employing on-site potentials with a non-trivial fractal dimension instead of the conventional random disorder. We demonstrate that doing so extends the fractal phase and creates unusual dependence of fractal dimensions of the eigenfunctions. Furthermore, we study the fate of level statistics in such a system and analyze the return probability of a wave packet localized at a single site to provide a dynamical test-bed for our theory.
