: When should the -1 energy deduction for existing for one tick be assessed? Before or after the animal has a chance to eat anything?
Well, your above question is clearly answered in the spec. However,
what you might have wanted to know (well, at least I did) was whether
the deduction for existence was deducted before or after the animal
starts to move (and hence before the deduction for movement). McQuain
said that it really doesn't matter for this project because the
logging isn't that detailed.
