Archipelago Colony

Here are results from another cellular automata model - a colony of ten agents operating under the same zone-building behavior set as earlier. The question here was whether the efforts of multiple agents would eventually sync to construct a unified zone. At around two days the colony seemed to reach a kind of plateau - building and dismantling at a similar rate.

The software model ran at 120 frames per second. This is the landscape at 30 seconds.

This is approximately two days later.

And this is approximately two days further, or four days from the launch of the model.
