Sure they're there.  You just need to zoom in a few times.  The problem here is as follows:

	- all your agents are located at 50x50 and never move, so they're piled up on top of one another

	- you're zoomed way out so the agents are teeny tiny

	- green doesn't help in seeing them here

	- neither does turning off clipping

I suggest initially keeping the display at perhaps 8 times the grid size.

It compiles fine, but when I try to run it I can't see any agents.  My student also created her own simulation and has the same problem.  The main similarity between us is that we are running java 1.6 on Mac OSX with Eclipse. Her code is not the same as mine which is what is leading me to believe we either both missed something obvious or one of these 3 factors is why the visualization is failing...
