The overall model had different builds that reflected specific situations (Table 1). In one model build the signaler’s effort did not result in a cumulative structure (as in dance displays), while in the second each signaler’s cumulative effort could be observed by receivers (as in discrete nests). Receivers also varied in disparate model builds; in a certain build, receivers could assess all the signaling individuals in a single time step, while in another build the receivers could only assess one “territory” at a time. Finally, in one model build signalers needed non-food display items for display, while in another build signalers could display after acquiring sufficient energy.
