Simulation

1st Simulation

My plan with this simulation is to explore how Vbody and Vrepro change over time. The sim was run using the following bot H 0.1 (5) and alga minimalis (10) under F1 conditions. As far as I know memory locations in bots cant be saved so I recorded the data by hand so to speak. I chose 5 bots, the 1 nearest each corner and the 1 nearest the center to make sure the sample was always random and then averaged the values. The data and graphs can be seen in sim1, but before you go looking at them, I want you to think about what you expect will happen to the values. Both Vbody and Vrepro start at  100 with the 1st bots, Vrepro and Vbody both determine the conditions under which the bot reproduces, Vbody also determines how big the bot becomes. So will the values remain low so that the bots can reproduce quickly or increase to improve feading? and is there an ideal value?

Code: [Select]
H 0.1
def Vbody 800
def Vrepro 801

cond
*.robage 1 =
start
1221 .eye5width store
*.in1 100 sub 200 rnd add 100 floor 10000 ceil .out1 store
*.in2 100 sub 200 rnd add 100 floor 10000 ceil .out2 store
stop

cond
*.eye5 0 >
*.myeye *.refeye !=
start
*.refxpos *.refypos angle .setaim store
-6 .shoot store
*.refveldx .dx store
*.refvelup 10 add .up store
stop

cond
*.eye5 0 =
*.myeye *.refeye = or
start
10 .up store
stop

cond
*.nrg *.body >
*.body *.Vbody <
start
*.Vbody *.body sub .strbody store
stop

cond
  *.nrg *.Vrepro >
  *.body *.Vbody >
start
  50 .repro store
stop

2nd simulation

For the 2nd simulation I wanted to see what would happen if I upped the pressure on the H 0.1 bots. To do so I used the following modified version of alga minimalis, to increase the difficulty in getting food.
Code: [Select]
cond
  *.nrg 6000 >
start
  50 .repro store
  15 .aimdx store
stop

cond
  *.shflav 0 !=
  *.robage 5 mod 3 =
start
  -6 .shoot store
  *.shang .aimshoot store
  0 .shflav store
stop
end

3rd + 4th Simulation

For the 3rd simulation, I upped the pressure further by using
Code: [Select]
cond
  *.nrg 6000 >
start
  50 .repro store
  15 .aimdx store
stop

cond
*.shflav 0 !=
*.robage 4 mod 2 =
start
-6 .shoot store
*.shang .aimshoot store
0 .shflav store
stop
end

unfortunately the H 0.1 bots didn't survive, so I upped the number of starting bots from 5 to 6 for simulation 4
