;;Title: Exam project
;; Student: Constant Patrice KODJA ADJOVI
;; S21
;; Model: This project goal is to implement the gradien paths based on the areas' elevation in altitude (gradlevel variable)
;; Please do reduce the ticks speed in order the experience slow move.

;;Notice: ;;Gradien_0_XPosition and Gradien_0_YPosition are values that provide an offset from min-pxcor and min-pycor.
