The Forest Fire simulation enables you to explore how forest fires unravel by letting you set fires to virtual forests with different parameters such as:

The simulation includes Tree agents that can burn down, Ground agents that act as background for trees and have the ability to create forests of different densities, and a Controller, which synchronizes the simulation.

Explorations

Open the Forest Fire AgentSheets simulation and try the following:

Using a pre-built forest

Open one of the existing worlds (e.g. Forest -- this forest was built with 50% tree density).

Creating your own forests

Do this if you want to change parameters such as forest density

Scripting experiments

You can script forest fire experiments using the scripted version of the forest fire simulation
