) at the end of your comment.No exponential growth is likely to due to not having the minion reproduction factor added to the simulation yet, since in the original analysis that was what usually takes over in the end-state. Glad to see you're still around. - Prima 20:03, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

- Interestingly enough, I just added the minions now to verify that, and it still doesn't achieve exponential growth; it doesn't even fill the whole lattice actually. See here. The equilibrium for witches is much higher than without minions though. The human population if halved and the witch population is twice as big as before, but it still reaches an equilibrium around 500 individuals. In terms of implementation, a witch has a 1% probability of spawning a minion on each free cell surrounding it, and a minion becomes a witch after 15 iterations. No MS-minion combat implemented for now. --Homerun-chan 22:27, 10 April 2013 (UTC)
