Create n turtles at the center of the world with their headings evenly distributed.

createOTurtles(n, world, breed, color)

# S4 method for numeric
createOTurtles(n, world, breed, color)

Arguments

n

Integer.

world

WorldMatrix or worldArray object.

breed

Character. Vector of "breed" names. Must be of length 1 or of length n. If missing, breed = "turtle" for all turtles.

color

Character. Vector of color names. Must be of length n. If missing, colors are assigned using the function rainbow(n).

Value

AgentMatrix object of length n with data for the turtles being: "xcor", "ycor", "who", "heading", "prevX", "prevY", "breed", and "color".

Details

The identity of the turtles is defined by their "who" number. This numbering starts at 0 and increments by 1.

The coordinates from the previous time step are stored in "prevX" and "prevY". The initial values are NA.

Examples

w1 <- createWorld(minPxcor = 0, maxPxcor = 4, minPycor = 0, maxPycor = 4, data = runif(25)) t1 <- createOTurtles(n = 10, world = w1) plot(w1)
points(t1, col = of(agents = t1, var = "color"), pch = 16)
t1 <- fd(turtles = t1, dist = 1) points(t1, col = of(agents = t1, var = "color"), pch = 16)
