OK there are some weird things going on here.

1) it appears that walls were screwed up a little when the shpae functions were put in. Basically a wall has no shape so a division by zero error occurs.

Fixed that easily enough.

2) Another overflow happend just after when a robot looked at a wall. Apparently the wall is moving at a speed of -20,000 twips per cycle.  :blink:  even though it is quite obviously stationary.

Working on that one.

Yup weird eh?

It is because walls are passed over in almost all of the calculation routines so the velocity never gets capped or zeroed out.

Fixed this too.

Incidentally, tie feeders can attach themselves to walls. I didn't realize that.

A wall is easy to identify though. It has an energy of exactly 1.
