Global Parameters

The Cosmos system as described contains a considerable number of global parameters. These are listed and described in Section A.1. The number of parameters is much larger than in most other artificial life platforms, but this is largely because other platforms often have many features which are hard-coded in a fairly arbitrary way. In contrast, Cosmos was designed to allow the user a great degree of control over the system's configuration.
