Wait Action

Definition: The Wait action causes the AgentSheets scheduler to wait the amount of seconds indicated by a number or a Visual AgenTalk Formula before executing its next command. Use it to slow down simulations.

Note: The Wait action halts the entire simulation. Another alternative is to use the Once Every condition to selectively slow down portions of a simulation.

Parameters: formula
Example: The Frog agent in the Frogger simulation has some delays when controlled with the arrow keys so that it does not move too fast.

See the Frogger simulation.
