sub slowdown is based on proportion between agent size to distance to other agents. this becomes problem when big range of random sizes presence.
why? because all the smaller ones just easily ran off again.
the simplest way around is to change the size range variable from 1.5 to smaller number.

how do i found out about this?
like many systems in AL, the key is to run with lots of different inputs.
firstly i suspect the number of steps, the bigger number the bigger chances for agents to met and stuck to each other
but whilst watching, i noticed that their sizes are not so different.
so i control the size ranges from nsize

this will do for now.
