    The southward-moving “bug” is, I think, an artifact of how headings get averaged. Suppose you had two humans with headings of 10 and 350. What’s the average? Well, you’d like it to be 0 (zero), but if you just do a straight average of 10 & 350 you get 180 … straight down.

    You could try to do smarter averaging, but easier would be to set the heading to the heading of “one-of” the humans in its radius. This is sufficient to obtain flocking anyway, and removes the southward bias without straining your brain about the proper way to average headings.

    I’ve implemented your suggestion, and it worked embarrassingly well. You’ve saved me a great deal of irritation. Thank you!

    can you please give us an estimate? im loving your works

    • asymptote Says:

      Thanks! Unfortunately, any estimate I give is going to be pretty inaccurate since I’m not working on the Simulator at the moment, but it’s going to be at least another few months.

    Not knowing that a zombie-model already exists in NetLogo, I programmed one myself. Although my approach is different to yours, you might be interested.

    You can find my model here:

    Would be glad to know what you think of it.
