To deal with stochastics, Machinations has 4 Run modes. You can access them in the Run Bar, at the bottom of the canvas.
Simulates player & systems interaction in real-time. Only Run mode that supports Interactive Nodes and real-time changes within the diagram.
Run diagram one step at a time. This is an easy way to debug your diagram as you build it, and identify where it breaks.
Computes (server-side) and returns the complete scenario of a single execution instantly.
Plays out (server-side) numerous Quick Runs and plots the result of hundreds or thousands of plays, all overlaid in the Chart, which becomes a heat-map of values/time.
📖 For a more in-depth explanation of this method of simulation, check out 🔗 The Monte Carlo Method.
Select one of the executions you performed, then navigate it by hovering your mouse over the Chart and get the values of the plotted Nodes at each Step of the execution.
