3D tutorial: creation of a 3D distance graph amon cells.

Model Definition

In this final step, we will display edges between cells that are within a given distance.

Cells update

We add a new reflex to collect the neighbors of the cell that are within a certain distance:

species cells skills:[moving3D]{
reflex compute_neighbors {
neighbors <- cells select ((each distance_to self) < 10);

Then we update the cell aspect as follows. For each element (cells) of the neighbors list, we draw a line between this neighbor's location and the current cell's location.

aspect default {
draw sphere(environment_size*0.01) color: #orange;
loop pp over: neighbors {
draw line([self.location,pp.location]);
