Hello, I am simulating a reproduction mechanism on agents every a
determine number of ticks, the re-secheduling mechanism work fine, I
created a steppable that schedules the new agents to execute the next
tick, but there is a problem. I schedule the new agents the same order
number as their parents but this doesnŽt work as I expected because the
step mechanism first call the parents (order 0) and then all the new
agents (also order 0). This introduces some biases on the result. I would
expect all agents scheduled for order 0 be stepped randomly, even if they
were scheduled dynamically.
Is this a missing mechanism? I found a way to solve this issue but this
meant not scheduling every agent but an agent that call them, so my agents
are not steppables.
IŽll appreciate any comment.
Thank-You.
