Click to Run Model

breed[cancers cancer] ;malignant cells
breed[normals normal] ;normal cells

to setup

  ask patches [ set pcolor gray ]

  set-default-shape cancers "pentagon" ;; mailgnant cells
  create-cancers initial-number-cancers  ;; create the malignant cells,
    set color red
    set size 1  ;; malignant cell
 setxy random-xcor random-ycor
  set-default-shape normals"square" ;;normal cells
  create-normals initial-number-normals  ;; create the normal cells,
    set color blue
    set size 1
    setxy random-xcor random-ycor


to go
  if not any? cancers [stop]
  if ticks = 20 [stop] ;; the computational power of my PC is not enogh to continue with more tics

  ask cancers [
    any? turtles-on neighbors4
    [hatch 1 rt random-float 360 fd 1 ]

  ask normals  [
   if not any? normals-on neighbors4
