Strength vs Swarm Size
Currently I am using a modified version of Zak Escher's swarming script. Today I decided to test the fStrength value of the function against the swarm size after noting perculiarities in movement mentioned in the last post. I was hoping to find a way to make large groups more efficient when shoaling/swarming together.
Right off the bat, the results show that the stronger each fish is, the more efficiently the swarm will operate at higher numbers. However, strong fish in a small shoal will operate inefficiently. Therefore, while strength is a global trait to the fish, the amount used will have to be circumstantial if possible.
I'll post the results soon as Blogger seems a little touchy about inserting tables into posts...
