2.5.0 is released!
We develop and improve crowd:it continuously. And now, a new version is released with great new features.
Define different populations within one simulation
Within crowd:it, different populations can be modeled by using body size and velocity distributions. From these distributions, individual agents with a specific body and velocity are placed into the simulation. Until now, the user could define only one distribution for the whole simulation. With this release, different populations (such as elderly, handicapped etc.) can be defined per origin as so-called personas, which are re-usable.
Improved origin form
To simplify the creation of origins, the dialog has been improved: Different settings can now be edited in separate tabs. This allows a faster overview of the individual settings. In addition, some help buttons have been added.
Scheduled waiting behaviour
Especially in circulation simulations, waiting zones are used to represent ticket counters, toilets or other similar objects. When modelling train stations, waiting zones are used to model the waiting behavior until the train arrives. Since the trains follow a certain schedule, it is not sufficient that each person waits the same time. Instead, the people have to leave the waiting zone according to the train schedule.
To support this behavior, intervals can be assigned to the waiting zones. These decide at which time all currently waiting persons leave the waiting zone.
Improved summary creation
To simplify the creation of summaries, they have been moved to a separate dialog. This allows an easier overview of all possible summaries as well as a filter option in the future.
In addition to implementing new features, we also focus on making crowd:it faster. This time, we took a closer look at the chart dialog and were able to speed it up significantly.
A complete list of our changes can be found in our changelog.
