: good point. prof. mcquain even said in class it was unneccessary and you could do the same by creating goals. he also said if he were to redo his implementation he would not include a direction field in his own design.

Correct. Note however that the truck must know what direction it is traveling in.

: : What is the point of having a Direction field?? One can just manipulate the truck's location by adding or subtracting one from it. The direction change is not logged anywhere in the output, and the trucks change direction and move in the same tick...so what's the point?? I'm sure i'm missing something here...any advice would be appreciated.
