Thanks for your prompt and helpful reply!
Unfortunately I am only dealing with one breed of agent, so when I move
forward, *all* agents move forward, hence there will never be something
there for them to smell!
I was thinking that I might be able to do this if I could get them moving
forwards one at a time, but as I am having them stay there if there is not
an agent in front of them (I am doing a very simple traffic simulation),
if there is an agent directly behind the first
agent that checks and then moves, the agent would not know the first agent
was there before and will just move into the space.
