Each agent type may have specific icon associated
Each time you create a population of agents, this icon is displayed on
the diagram. Icon is drawn in the
graphical editor of the corresponding agent type using the
same shapes (ovals,
rectangles, lines, etc.)
you use to draw agent's presentation.
Therefore, you should explicitly specify shapes that are components of
the agent's icon. The elements making up an icon do not belong to any level.
Icon also contains agent's interface elements (ports and public system dynamics variables). Thus you are enabled to connect these elements to interface elements of another agent populations.
The icon size is set automatically to fit all icon shapes. You can see that all icon elements are outlined with a rectangle named Icon. It defines the border of the icon area.
