The objective of this design is to develop a Stigmergic System and define behaviors of its agents with respect to the system. In Liquid Mercury, the agents are applied to a cylinder with a Radius of 20 and a Height of 150. The Stigmergic environment is developed by applying vector and Forces on the Z-Axis and applying a Color Gradient on the mesh surface of the cylinder. The agents respond to the environment by moving up on the column with the force on the z-axis and also moving from the darker areas of the mesh to the lighter areas of the mesh, with different iterations available. Changing the iterations could result in various forms of the design; but following the same concept, the Stigmergic Environment.
