Thanks for the detailed reply. I think I might try and find some time to familiarise myself with Avida ... I have, in the past, sketched out a framework for doing experiments like this myself but based on what you have written I think my system would not be possible to impliment in Avida.

I might go back over my early notes and see if there is anything sensible I can summarise here.

A thought occured after my last post - would it be possible to have the resource inflict a penalty when it is above a certain level? Think of it like a nutrient rich gradient coming from a hydrothermal vent - if you get too close to the source you literaly start to cook. There would be an optimal distance (A habitable zone?), and I would expect to see the resulting pattern of activity to appear as a ring rather than a point (referring to your plots above)
