Hello again!

As I am new to this forum, I hope it's ok if I post here modeling question. If not, let me know where is the right place for that.

I am trying to re-implement the NetLogo slime-mold model which uses a diffusion method on the "habitat". How would I go about implementing this?

TIA

JP

This is exactly the place to be asking modeling quesitons..

Well...

You succeeded in getting me away from my documentation tasks to take a look at this. Smile Basically I think this is just the same a Heatbugs.. And, now unfortunately, you've hit on a couple of cases that AMF is not handling well now, that is statistical functions across agent selections and finding maximum and minimum values. The issue isn't as much as one of code generation but as a design representation issue -- one that I want to get right - and I was planning to wait until Acore to work on this, but I think it might be worth doing sooner rather than later.

You *can* handle this with Method Actions (native Escape/Java). Obviously that's not super satisfactory, but let me know if you'd like more details on that.

Thank you Miles for your response. I am currently going through the really useful Agent Modeling Guide and will then look at different models to begin with. No rush though as it's important to get the foundation right and moving at its due pace.
I will look at some other model to get the principles down and keep you posted hopefully sometime soon.

OK, I have the diffusion working in the latest build (nightly). I'm just getting the min and max search working. That should be enough to support both slime molds and (finally, since this was one of the original targets) Sugarscape and heatbugs.

Awesome!
I am still on my Prey-Predator model which I struggle with as I am trying to get the thought process in my head. Videos are very helpful luckily and I use also a lot the sample models from CSV.

OK, great. Let me know if you get stuck on something. I'm hoping to have an example Heatbugs in the next day or two and then of course it will be quite easy for me to implement the basic Sugarscape.
