The Automobile Simulation

This simulation is a representation of the impact automobiles had in the United States during the 20th Century. Please read the descriptions of our Agents and their behaviors so that you can use the simulation more effectively. Here are some directions to help you use the simulation

Note: The roads change from dirt roads to regular roads (when the city develops enough). The applet version of our simulation does not handle road changing very well (the changed roads do not connect as they should). You can fix this by manually laying road pieces on top of the non-connected roads. Better yet, run the simulation in AgentSheets to observe the right behavior.

This applet was generated using AgentSheets® Version 1.4 with RistrettoTM.
