It is a conundrum.  The reason MASON looks up the portrayal objects themselves before portrayals registered for them was efficiency: otherwise every time an object was drawn it'd be one or more hash lookups.  Is this a big deal?  Probably not any more. 

I have made a new trial version of sim.portrayal.FieldPortrayal which permits an "alternate portrayal ordering" where the hash lookups are checked before the objects themselves are used. You could try this version and see how it goes; I'd prefer not to commit it before it's been tested.

To do this, I create a new sim.portrayal.simple.LabelledPortrayal2D object, passing "null" to the child argument, and "Hello World" to the label argument. Setting the child to null is necessary because the agents my model uses are their own Portrayals, extending a class that extends SimplePortrayal2D.

Looking at the documentation, it seems that this is the case because of the order of priority different portrayals take. Where the portrayal set by setPortrayalForAll is used first, then the object itself if it implements Portrayal, and the setPortrayalForClass portrayal beneath this. Is it possible to use wrappers if the object is its own portrayal? > > The obvious solution would be to simply not have my objects portrayal themselves, to instead decouple the portrayal from agent, and have a separate AgentPortrayal class that I then can register using the setPortrayalForClass method. I don't think this is possible, since I'm using the Physics2D framework, and my agents extend the MobileObject2D, is its own portrayal. > > What would be the best work around solution here?
